Diaper Derby

Yesterday was the highly anticipated Diaper Derby.  Basically it is a race for crawling babies.  One parent is at one end of the mat trying to get the baby to crawl as fast as they can to the other side.  Anyway, we figured that our son who is always on the move would do great at such an event.  Wrong.  The derby was held at a local mall and between the DJ announcer, the 250 babies and parents standing nearby and all of the on-lookers it was VERY loud.  Ryan was much more fascinated with looking around than he was with crawling to me.  It seems that many of the other babies in his heat race felt the same way.  By the way...the little girl right next to Ryan won the race. :) 

Enjoying a little pre-game snack...


Go number 18!!!!


We found these people who had come out to support Ryan...LOL...strangely enough they were standing right next to us.  


Ryan seemed more interested in the banner than anything else...


Tired baby after the big race...


Please excuse the volume...it was VERY loud and of course I was trying to yell to get Ryan's attention but I still don't think he could hear me.
