A Tooth!

I tried really hard to get a good picture of Ryans first tooth, but he doesn't like me playing with his mouth when he's trying to play with the camera! if you click on the picture it will load real big on your screen, you might be able to see it better that way.

Congrats to the Grads!

Tims sister Ruthie and my sister Katie both just graduated from college (different colleges). So congratulations to both of them! Good job sticking it out! You're finally done!

Ryan J Army Crawls

Reflux Update

bear with me, i have a lot to say today!

Ryans reflux is still going strong and tim and i are still quite exhausted. We've seen the specialist and he made sure his anatomy is all in it's right place, so that's not the problem. We're still told he'll outgrow this within his first year. Which isn't much of a comfort on bad days when he's constantly whining. he doesn't sleep/nap well in general, up until about two weeks ago ryan was still getting up every 1 to 2 hours at night. that has greatly improved and he's up about twice a night now!! he doesn't eat all that well either but he seems to get enough, he's still gaining weight! he's still on his prilosec and we're trying mylanta as well.

but the biggest thing that makes a difference is PRAYER!! here's two examples...
at small group the other night i was very discouraged and the girls prayed for me/ryan and that night he was at my moms and he slept through the night! and just today we were having a terrible whiny spitty day and he wouldn't eat. tim was home for lunch and prayed for us. after lunch ryan ate 6 ounces and napped from 1:30-4:30! praise the Lord for little miracles!

Just wanted to say a special thanks to my mom for all the help she gives me. She is a great support to me every week, helping around the house, with grocery shopping, and generally just being there to talk to, like she's always been! She (and my dad) have also been taking ryan for one night a week to allow tim and i to sleep. this is a HUGE blessing to us!

Weekend Fun with the Girls

God has blessed me with great friends and I got to spend the weekend with some of them...

On friday night I got to go to the Rockapella concert with my mom and my sister. It was fantastic!! They are awesome and so hilarious! My hands hurt from clapping so much. We also went out to dinner at the culinary arts school beforehand. That was quite fun, there were probably 2 chefs per customer lol. Anyhow, here's some pics...

On saturday I went to a baby shower with my small group girls. Also great fun, and great food! :) Here's a really good pic we took while we were there...

I wish I could have hung out with all my friends this weekend. Why is it that we only get all our loved ones together for weddings and funerals? It's so hard to keep in touch especially with long distance friends, but it doesn't mean I don't love you! (I miss you Thera and Megan!)
