Here is Grandma Nancy and me at the hospital, I was only one day old! Grandma Nancy took very good care of my Mommy and Daddy during our stay at the hospital. I spend most of my days with Grandma Nancy, we have a blast! My Mommy says I have a way more exciting social life then her, thanks to Grandma!

Mommy said I looked like the size of a monster laying next to her and that she couldn't believe I was ever that small! As you can tell in the picture, Marla is already telling me secrets. I can't wait to pay Mommy and Uncle Tone back for being such bratty kids. We promised Grandma we would!
Here I am with my Grandma Barton in Nebraska! I love going to visit her, she spoils me rotten. And, when I come home to Boise, she spoils me here too....she must owe the post office a fortune! We just got webcams so I am hoping to get to see more of my Grandma....AND....she promised to come visit me SOON....right Grandma?? I need to go swimming in the ocean and I can't do that without YOU!

Meet my Uncle Tone...I am named after him too. His real name is James Anthony and he is now a Daddy! He has a daughter named Marla Jane. Uncle Tone is an awesome Uncle and is going to make a great Daddy! He wanted me to make sure and tell you that he is not homeless and just dresses this way because he is cool like that! Love you Uncle Tone!
The name carries on, traditions are passed and love continues to grow! Here I am with Great Grandpa Bud, Grandpa Dave and my Daddy! Now are we some good lookin guys or what? Here is where I get my last name....BLOXHAM! Hopefully, I get some of my Great Grandpa Bud's sense of humor.....he makes my Mommy laugh all the time!
Here is my Great Grandpa Barton. I got to meet him in September, unfortunately he passed away in October. He was a very special person to my Mommy. He told my Mommy that I was an "exceptional" baby! I can't wait to hear all the stories Mommy tells me about him when I am older. Hopefully I will grow up to be half the fisherman he was!
And here is where I get my middle name! From my Grandpa Jim (aka James). I love my Grandpa Jim, he tells the best stories! I recently visited him in January and he made me some awesome beef and noodle soup! I almost ate a bowl of it, I can't wait to visit him soon so he can make me some more great food and tell me more stories!
I stayed at Grandma Sara and Grandpa Dave's house! I had a great time and didn't want to leave! It's spa days EVERYDAY at their house! This picture was taken a few months ago (October?) I stayed there again last weekend (January)! I never knew Grandpa Dave could move so fast, but I make a noise and he is there in a flash! Don't tell him, but I think I got him wrapped around me finger!! When can I stay again Grandma Sara?
I am a happy boy when I am with Grandma Nancy! She watches me during the day while Mommy and Daddy are working. My Mommy and Daddy appreciate Grandma Nancy very much. Now they don't have to worry about me while they are at work.....they know I am in good hands! I appreciate her too......we have lots of fun together!
Here I am with a few of the "Ryder" girls and my Daddy. Not sure if you know where I got my name, but Great Grandma Lois married a man named Norbert "Pete" Ryder. He was a really special man!! Mommy and Daddy thought it would be cool to carry on Great Grandpa's name. So there you have it...my name has a very important meaning to our family!
Great Aunt Susan made this for me for Christmas! Mommy said I will have it forever. I better be good so Santa fills it every year! Thanks Aunt Susan!
Uncle Chris got me a monkey; my Daddy had one as a kid and Uncle Chris thought I needed one too! He sleeps with me every night in my crib. Uncle Chris even put a special surprise inside the monkey, so maybe when I am older I will find it? And if not, Mommy and Daddy know about it...so maybe they will end up with the surprise!!
