Ryan Update...

Ryan turned 4 months on January 20th. Here are the results from his well-check:

Weight: 15 lbs. 13 oz (75%) (Holy Moly!)
Length: 25 1/2 inches long (75%)

We're going to start him on cereal this weekend...I can't believe he's ready for solid foods already!

He is smiling so much now! He has also started laughing a little when he's super happy. He reaches his hands (still very awkwardly) to grab at stuff, and everything goes in his mouth!

If you kiss anywhere near his mouth he tries to eat you...I love it!

He is constantly eating his hands. I'm starting to think he likes the sensation on his fingers because when I put my fingers in his mouth, he bites for a second and then pushes them out, whereas the other kids would chomp away on my fingers too.

He has not rolled over again since the first time a month ago. I think he's too fat :) I think his thighs are bigger than Kylie's :) But he is the cutest thing!

He "talks" all the time. But it's hard to understand him because his hands are in his mouth when he's talking to us :)

He's still not sleeping well. He wants someone to hold him when he sleeps, including at night, so I usually only get a few hours of sleep without having to hold him. He is still getting up once at night to eat (and we can all see he does not need that food!).

He still has the biggest, most beautiful blue eyes. We can thank Grandma Stickel for those...she gave them to kylie and it looks like maybe ryan will be keeping his (she's the only one on both sides that has blue eyes).

He is such a wonderful little guy*!

*and by "little," I mean big and fat :)

Oh my gosh, how could you deny that child anything? He is just too stinking cute. Sorry but I want to monch on his cheeks.
Thank God, it's only a few more months before I can monch on my own.
He is perfect and it's wonderful that he's growing and thriving for you!

I LOVE the baby kisses where they try to inhale your face as soon as you get within a foot of them :)

He's perfect. I want to drive however many hours to your house and just eat him up. :)

He is beautiful! And he is not fat at all, just a healthy adorable baby! I had one skinny baby, and trust me I would much rather have a chubby one than that. I was constantly worried that she wasn't getting enough to eat!
