Ryan Update...

I'm sorry it's been so long since I posted...I am actually doing work right now - so for the next week and a half I am taking care of three kids while working full-time from home. To say I'm stressed and at the end of my rope would be an understatement :)

*************************************************************

Yesterday was Ryan's one month check-up (yep, he's one month now and it's KILLING me!). Here are the stats:

Weight: 10 lbs. 7 oz. (75%) (he gained 2 lbs. since his last visit!!!)
Height: 21 1/2 inches long (50%)

He's doing fantastic! He's so adorable and sleeps really well (except for last night when he had me up for two hours)...he usually eats every four or five hours, so I get nice chunks of sleep which is very appreciated.

He smiled at us for real for the first time yesterday!! Kylie and I were playing with him and he was smiling at us, and then John didn't believe us so he tried and Ryan smiled at him too! Isn't it amazing how kids can get even cuter just by smiling?

Kylie and Josh are doing well...getting a little better with the noise level and just getting used to Ryan being here.

When I have a free second I will write about the fantastic weekend we had down at John's parents house. John's whole family was down there for his brother's 25th birthday.

Hi Debbie,

It's nice to hear from you and hear that everything's going great...except for the heavy workload! Hang in there!

It's good to hear from you! I'm glad things are settling down. Well, with Kylie and Josh anyway! I cannot believe you are working and taking care of all the kids, I know that's not easy.

We need to see some new pictures of Ryan, prefferably with a smile on his face. What? It's not like you're busy or anything.

Wow I can't believe he is a month old already! Where does the time go.

Glad to hear you are doing well, even if you are super busy. You should get the award for SuperMom for looking after 3 little ones and working full time already.

wow, I can't believe he's a month old already!! Glad to hear he's being nice and giving you time to sleep.
The work thing sounds sucky though! Don't they know you need a break right now? Hope it slows down soon so you can spend time with the kidlings
