The day Ryan has been waiting for...

So, notice anything different about our happy little boy?

No? Take a closer look. How about now?

Still nothing? How about now?

Today is the day Ryan has been waiting for for a very long time. That's right, today we found Ryan's very first freckle (check it out, lower left side of the picture). Ryan has been obsessed with freckles ever since he discovered last year that I have them on my arms, legs and face. He immediately started giving himself freckles with crayons, pens, markers, whatever he could find. And then for days after drawing one on, even long after it had been washed off, if you asked him where his freckle was, he would remember right where he had drawn it and pretend it was still there. Well, we are now happy to report that Ryan is now the proud owner of his very own freckle. Three of them, in fact (there is also one on his knee and one up by his hair on his forehead that we have discovered). He was pretty excited when we showed it to him in the mirror. Just another perk to a great Easter!

That's cute! Tanner has his first one in just about the same spot.
