3 Months!

Ryan is 3 months old now. He is doing well and growing quickly. He is not a little guy anymore (although he will always be our little baby). He started daycare last week and it is going ok. He doesn’t nap well there though. I am hoping it is just a phase. I know it will take some time for him to get used to the noise, the other babies, and new people but it is so hard to see him so tired. Last week when we picked him up he went right to sleep in the car and slept the whole night. He would wake up to eat and then go right back to sleep. Last week was definitely hard because we were missing our little guy so much when all he would do was sleep when we picked him up. So far this week he still isn’t napping well at daycare but is staying awake a little more at home but is a bit fussy and has to be held by Mommy. Plus, he came down with his first cold. Poor little guy. I am sure it was a combination of being overly tired and his immune system being down due to that and then being around all the new babies and people (who carry all kinds of new germs he hasn’t been around). Friday night was pretty rough. He woke up several times because he was so congested he couldn’t breathe. Luckily, he is doing better already and is almost over it; although Jonathan and I came down with it. I made Jonathan take medicine as soon as I got sick to try to avoid him getting too sick and it worked well. Hopefully we don’t keep giving it back and forth to each other. The daycare workers say Ryan is such a great baby and doesn’t cry except when he gets hungry. And that he is so curious that he just spends all his time looking around and taking everything in. I have a feeling he is going to be too curious for his own good. He has been a little more attached to his Mommy since he has started daycare because he is so tired and in a strange place during the day (honestly, that doesn’t bother me one bit). We didn’t go anywhere for Halloween since he was sick but we did dress him up. He was the cutest pumpkin ever. Jonathan made fun of me when I bought the costume but loved it. Ryan didn’t mind that we dressed him up either. And since Jonathan and I were laughing so much he did too. Hopefully we can get into a good routine and everyone can adjust. I am adjusting back to work well and enjoying my new position. Jonathan enjoyed his two weeks off with Ryan but is glad to be back to work. We go Saturday for Ryan’s 3 month pictures and I am very excited about that. However, it is hard to get a smile on camera from him. He will be smiling and laughing and as soon as you pick up the camera he quits and just stares at the camera. Here are some pictures that I have taken over the last couple of weeks.

We put him the bumbo chair for the first time a couple of weeks ago. He enjoyed being able to sit up. Here is a picture of him smiling at his Daddy.

When Jonathan was home with Ryan they came to visit me at work.

We put him to work.

One of his favorite poses; putting his dukes up.

Being a cool little dude.

Happy Halloween!!! You can't tell from the picture but he was laughing right before this.
We put together his jumperoo over the weekend and put him in it. He is still too small for it though so we will have to wait a little longer before he can play in it.
Our 3 month old little guy!

  1. I had and still have the same problem with Catherine at daycare. She does not sleep and never has there. She sleeps through the night though because she doesn't get naps and naps more on the weekends. Catherine likes to yell and keep the other kids awake when they are supposed to be napping. Little trouble makers we may have! He is adorable and can't believe how quick they grow.
