Happy Birthday Mommy


This year I received the greatest gift I could ever ask for - our sweet little Ryan. The day started great with Ryan sleeping a full 3 1/2 hours at a time last night and Tom took the first shift which gave me a full 5 hours of sleep for the first time in 6 weeks. I felt like a million bucks when I got up for his 4 am feeding. Our little man is growing stronger every day - he is holding his head up on his own most of the time and has started standing for long periods at a time. He kicks his legs and moves his arms like a little swimmer which is really cute.

Lynne and Steve send this cute cookie bouquet for my birthday and as you can see one cookie is bigger then Ryan's head. Today Shelly and I walked over a mile which felt great however after one of these cookies we'll need to go twice as far tomorrow!
I caught this great shot last night when Tom was talking to Ryan. The boys love their one on one time however I believe this particular conversation was about how poorly the Packers played on Sunday. As you can see Ryan is very engaged in the conversation.
