Thanksgiving, 4 Months and much more!

It's been a couple of weeks since I have had a chance to update our blog (sorry) but life has been busy. Work has been really busy lately trying to process returns before the end of the year; that's a deadline that just can't be changed. And life at home is always busy with a baby. Ryan is doing ok at daycare. He still isn't doing much of his schedule but I am hoping now that he is getting used to taking naps there we can get him back on track and on schedule. He still does pretty well at home for his schedule. We still really need to work on getting him back to sleep when we drop him off at daycare or better yet not to wake up at all. I failed to take many pictures at Thanksgiving but I did take a few. It was a great holiday! Ryan was a bit intimidated by all the people; he just wasn't for sure what to do about the crowd. Hopefully, he will do better at Christmas. It was nice to see my Dad and for Ryan to get to spend some time with his Grandpa who made the trip down from Illinois. We are all looking forward to Chris, Nikki, Aubrey and Hayden to make the trip down at Christmas time!! I really enjoyed spending time with family; something that is hard to do with a busy life and a baby. Ryan had his 4 month check up on Friday and the doctor said he is doing great. He weighed in at 15lbs (50th percentile) even, he is 25 1/2 inches long (69th percentile) and his head was 41 cm in circumference (41st percentile). He has caught up in his height; which has made his Daddy very happy! He did really well with his shots. He did cry a little but stopped as soon as I picked him up. He was a bit fussy and sleep the rest of the day though and did run a little bit higher temp than normal but all is well again this morning. We are looking forward to enjoying Christmas this year with our little guy. Yes, he won't really know what is going on but we will enjoy having him here. We put our tree up and decorated around the house. Ryan didn't seem to care too much but does enjoy the lights. Right now we are working on getting him to sleep in his crib; something I have been putting off and not looking forward to. He is just getting to big for his napper in the pack-n-play and I know I should have moved him awhile ago. Hopefully the transition goes smoothly because I don't want to mess up his night sleep. Here are some pictures from the last couple of weeks.

Thanksgiving: Playing with Aunt Jennifer.

Playing with cousin Jessica

With Grandpa (have you noticed a recurring theme? Ryan's hands are always in his mouth).

Ryan is becoming much more interested in toys now. He will actually grab them and play with them.

He is getting close to rolling over (back to belly, doesn't really care about doing it the other way). He just can't seem to figure out what to do with that arm and how to get it out of the way.

He is playing more and more with his toys. He now grabs the toys hanging from his play gym. And he is finding his feet. He will kick the toys, grab his toes and play with them.

Ryan and Mommy hanging up his first Christmas ornament.

And the ornament looks like this.

  1. I love the picture of Ryan with his daycare friends! They look like a group of old men getting together for poker or something. :) Also, your family ornament is too sweet.
