First Tooth!!
Ryan was a little fussy this weekend, and I just couldn't figure out what it was......
Well, he got his first tooth today! YEAH! It is very exciting. The second one doesn't seem to be too far behind either. He didn't get a fever or anything fun like that, just a little fuss and a LOT of drool! Daddy and I are very proud of the little man.
Love and lots of very sloppy kisses from Ryan!

Just a quick note for a happy day to all Dad's....but especially to Scott.
Ryan and I are both very sad that we are not going to be able to celebrate Scott's first Father's day with him, so Ryan asked me to pass this along to his dad................................................

4 Months Old!
Well, the latest statistics are in, and it is official.....
Ryan will be Scotts size in no time! He is now 16lbs 5 oz, 25 1/2 inches long. Big boy however you look at it! His doctor kept commenting about how handsome he is, and what a sweet baby. After they gave him his shots, not so sweet for awhile, but overall, very good! It is only 8:30 here, so we have a long night ahead of us, but for now he is sleeping soundly, hopefully he will not experience too much discomfort.
Besides that news, not too much new to report here, my mom is coming to visit this weekend, she is very excited about seeing Ryan. I think she is actually having withdrawal!
We are both sad that we are not going to be able to spend Scotts first Fathers Day together. I am working on getting a DVD burned for him..if I can get the software to work! It is hard when you are used to having a geek in the house!
We are counting down to CA, I am very ready for a little vacation, as work has been totally insane. It is not going to be a long trip, but I am looking forward to it very much.
Hope all is well with all of you...
Much love
Ryan & Shelley

What day is it again? 'blog
Life has been a bit hectic, so you will all excuse me I am sure, for not posting for so long. Ryan is doing GREAT. We had 2 nights last week that he slept all night, from 8pm to 6am...that was wonderful! Of course, I was up checking his breathing frequently, so I am not sure that I got anymore sleep than usual....but it was good for him. But, the last 2 nights he has gotten up once to eat, so it may just have been a fluke...only time will tell!
His Nana was here from IL over Memorial Day weekend, and we had a wonderful visit. She got to spend some quality time with the munchkin, and I got a chance to get some things done around the house that I just don't have the ability to do when I am here alone. She spoiled him, of course, as G-mas are supposed to do. She was able to babysit while I was working for a day and a half, I think she really enjoyed that, I know Ryan did.
If you have looked at the latest pictures, you have seen the beach outfit she got is too cute, he looks like a beach bum! Which is great, because we are going to CA to see my Favorite Auntie Karolyn and her family in July. I just got the news that my great aunt and uncle from KS will be there too, and I have not seen them since I was in college at McPherson, they used to come watch me play tennis and cheer, and they would bring me homemade cookies, it was awesome! I am very excited to see them, along with all the rest of the family out there that I miss so much!
That is about all the news from here. Ryan is just amazing, he is smiling and laughing and talking so much...he just has me in awe every day! WE go for his 4 month check up and shots on the 15th, so I will report back then how much he weighs, although I am pretty sure already it is 40 lbs...ok, maybe I am exaggerating a LITTLE bit..and how tall.
Much love to everyone...especially daddy!
