Very active!

We found a place to move to and will be moving (hopefully) this weekend. Thankfully, it's a long weekend so that will give us some extra time to unpack and get settled in. It is a 3 bedroom townhouse with a garage on the east side of Frankfort. The living room and kitchen are on the first floor along with a full bath and laundry. The 3 bedrooms are on the second floor along with another full bath. Only the living room, stairs and one of the bedrooms (the one we are using for storage) are along the adjoining wall that is shared with the other connected townhouse. Since it is a two unit house we still have a yard! I am so happy that we can still take Ryan out in the yard to play. We are very excited about this new adventure and living so much closer to work. Our commute will be less than 10 minutes!

Ryan's ear infection did not go away. So we had to take him back to the doctor last weekend and they put him on antibiotic shots. He had to go in Saturday, Sunday and Monday for shots. The nurse who gave him his first shot was a lady we go to church with and she said that the shot was very painful but had a numbing agent in it; however, it took a couple of seconds to work. Ryan had us both in tears after because you could just see the pain in his eyes (and the look of "mommy, how could you let her do that to me?"), poor little guy. He calmed down quickly after I got to pick him up though and did really well for the second and third dose. I think it took a couple of days but I am very hopeful that the ear infection is now gone. But if it isn't or he gets another one within the next couple of months he will have to get tubes.

Ryan and I did go to my niece's sixteenth birthday party Thursday night. It is so hard to believe she is 16 now! I still remember her as a little girl with these beautiful blonde curls in her hair, love you Jess! The rest of the weekend was spent packing and playing with Ryan. He is getting in to more and more every day. And it's amazing to see how he learns. Jonathan commented how much like a sponge he is (I said, "um, yeah, that's how babies are" lol) because he learned how to open the cabinet doors while watching Jonathan open it once. He has gotten very good at getting into a sitting position from lying down and usually when I go into his room to get him out of the crib he is sitting up now. He is starting to push up on all fours a lot more as well. He still doesn't really crawl that way (usually does the army crawl) but is starting too. And he has also started to pull up on things. He first started doing this in the bath tub of all places (making it scary for mommy). I haven't gotten a picture of him standing up after pulling up because I am too busy catching him (and worried he is going to hit his head).

Below are some pictures I have taken of Ryan over the last two weeks.

He has learned how to put his toys up on the slide all by himself.

Working his lungs! He flaps his arms like a bird when he does this too, lol!

Helping Mommy with laundry, by riding in the laundry basket.

He is really enjoying this book right now.
He has enjoyed all the boxes in the house.

Sitting up in his crib.

After eating spaghetti one night. He made such a mess.

He is getting really good with using a sippy cup. Although some times he gets carried away with leaning backwards and will tip over.

We put his pool up and put him in it. He didn't know what to think of being outside and in the water.

But he quickly began to enjoy it. The pool came with this little floating whale sprinkler. He really enjoyed it.

He had fun covering it up.

Trying to get the water while Daddy was spraying him.
Trying to get Mommy wet.
Splashing with his tonuge hanging out.
Jumping in his jumperoo. He still really enjoys this (for about 10 to 15 minutes). He will jump for several minutes straight, he is a crazy baby!
