Rolling Right Along

Today this cute little boy hit a milestone.

He rolled over.

He's been rolling onto his side for about two weeks now, but tonight, as Kylie, Josh and I were wrapping presents, he decided that he was bored with looking up at the cute little things hanging down from his play mat and rolled himself over to see what was on the bottom. The kids and I immediately started cheering for him and he quickly got a weird look on his face like "what the heck are you making so much noise for?"

Kylie and Josh both rolled over between 4 and 5 months. Ryan is not even 3 months yet...maybe he'll be our little one that is early with the motor skills. Think we're in trouble?

On another note, Ryan was wearing a 6 - 9 month Christmas outfit today that Josh wore for Christmas. However, Josh was born a full 3 months earlier in the year than Ryan.
Do you think he eats a lot?

I'm A Very Lucky Girl...

My little Ry-Ry is being such a good baby! A lot of times I'm able to lay him down in his bed and he'll fall asleep, he smiles at me a lot, and at the young age of 12 weeks he's even trying to sit up!

And for the last 5 nights he has slept through the night. And I mean really slept...I mean 8+ hours!!!

Now I know this is probably temporary (I've never, ever had kids sleep through the night before turning 1), but I'm definitely enjoying it while it lasts!

Pictures...Sort of...

I forgot the memory card again. But my in-laws have updated pictures of their night and day with the kids, so I'll send you over there :)

The first two sets of pictures are of my nephew and niece. Kylie, Josh and Ryan are the last set.

Have fun browsing :)

Crazy Night!

OK, so I don't have my Thanksgiving pictures yet, so maybe tomorrow?

Last night after work I picked my dad up from the airport (he and my mom were in Vegas...lucky dogs). I dropped him off at home and headed out to grocery shop (which I despise, but thankfully I was able to take my time and not forget things since I was by myself). As I was checking out my dad called and asked me if I wanted to go to dinner. This is very strange because he HATES going out to eat. So I loaded up my car and headed down to Olive Garden (one of the few places he likes).

We had a great dinner. I don't know if I've ever had dinner with just my dad. Afterwards we said good-bye because he was heading home. I waited until he got going and then took off. At the light we started to go our separate ways and then I saw that he had gotten out of his truck and the lights were off. His truck had died. Thankfully it started up again and we headed to the auto store. He was OK as long as he didn't stop! At the auto store they gave him a new battery and that fixed the problem, thank goodness!

He headed home and I headed to my house to put groceries away. By now it was 9:30, and John and the kids came home and after saying "hello" they got ready for bed. Little Ryan and I hung out for a short time before I needed to get to bed.

John wasn't feeling well so I took Ryan up to bed with me hoping that he would lay with me in bed and eventually fall asleep. I laid him in his bassinet with the vibrate on (he LOVES that) and got ready for bed. By the time I was ready he was fast asleep! He went to sleep on his own! I hope we can make a habit of that! He made me even happier by sleeping all the way until the time I needed to get up, so I got another straight 6 1/2 hours of sleep!

I'm jealous because John's home with the kids right now...I hope tonight is not too crazy and I'm able to spend some time with them!

Back At Work...

I'm back at work this week. Just one week and then I get to have another 3 weeks it bad I'm really looking forward to that already? Getting up this morning at 5:45 WAS NOT FUN!!!

John took the kids down to visit his parents' last night...all the kids. I actually got a straight 7 hours of sleep for the first time in a long time! The house was very quiet though and I can't wait for them to come back tonight!

I will post about our Thanksgiving hopefully tomorrow with pictures!
