No Longer a Newborn!

We have the most wonderful baby in the entire world.

[The above statement represents no biased opinions whatsoever...]

We are more than blessed to have Ryker in our home.
He has such a pure spirit that radiates to everyone around him.


He is one month old today and is progressing more than ever.


<> He is the cutest when he eats. You can always find him wide-eyed and squealing like a little animal!
<> He has recently discovered his tongue. There is nothing like having your little boy stick out his tongue at you. :]
<> He is fascinated by the light. We know we have said this before, but looking out the window can keep him occupied for hours.
<> He continues to poop every time we change his diaper. We have learned to be prepared.
<> He also continues to pee during every diaper change and after each bath. Again, we have learned to just expect it.
<> Speaking of baths, he LOVES the bath. No fussing goes on there!
<> He is so good at lifting up his head during tummy time. Tummy time is one of his favorite things to do.
<> He intentionally grabs hair; or at least this is what we believe...
<> He grabs a tight hold on your finger during feedings. It is adorable.
<> He enjoys standing up. We only need to hold him with one hand when he does this. He supports himself so well!
<> He attended his first day of church on December 5, 2010. He was such a reverent little boy.

[Our little family right before leaving to church.]

This last month has been a dream come true for us.
We could not have asked for a better Christmas gift than our little Ryker.






We have never felt a love like this before.
