A way to Remember

I came across this forum and thought it would be a great idea to post a journal of all the new things and changes life has brought our way.

I recently became a new mommy to Ryan Scott Willaims born on July 7, 2003. Ryan was born 8 pounds, 7.9 ounces, and 20 inches long. It feels like just yesterday we were in the hospital waiting for his arrival. He will be 3 months old in 8 days! :angel2: time is flying by so fast!

Ryan can now hold his head up very well, smile, like a champ, and being on the boob is his favorite hobby! I am really looking forward to that busting out laugh that should be coming any day, as well as the mile stone of rolling over.

Life for derrick and I has defintly changed. I think our relationship has gotten much closer since the birth of Ryan, however, we have grown apart because there is not much time for one another anymore. I can feel it and see it that is stressing him out, but I hope he understands things will get better as Ryan grows older! He is such a great guy and a woneful dad! I can't wait for the day we are married. We are planning our wedding for February 1st, 2004. We started dating on February 1st, 1999 so it would be great to have the wedding that day!

Well, gotta tend to the little one. Write more when there is time!

He sleeps through the night now!

Oh it is so awsome. After those first few weeks of waking every hour or two, my little champion Ryan is now sleeping through the night. For three weeks now, he goes down between 9 and 10 pm and sleeps til about 7am!
I feel so refreshed, like a new woman!

He looks like such a little angel when he sleeps. He is so peaceful, I can just sit and stare at him while he sleeps! I never imagined that having a baby could be this enjoyable!

When Ryan goes down, that is usually the first time of the day I usually get to spend a few minuted with Derrick. Even though there has not been much time, we make the best of what we do have together. Sex, yummmmm has been so great!!!! Biggrin Probably some of the best in years lol! In fact, he loved last night so much he was still talking about it this morning hehehehe!

Its been a while lol! But honestly I forgot I made a journal! :?

Things are okay here. Ryan is stll sick, has been since before thanksgiving. I swear, if they made an infants nyquil I would be in heaven!

The kid is finally rolling! I though he would never do it, but he has been for a week now. There were no clues he was gonna do it, it just happened!It makes me feel so proud!

Ryan is also on cereal now. It is going really well. I had tried fruits, but decided to wait until he is 6 months for that. we are up to 2 tbsp of cereal twice a day.

We have sucessfully weaned here. Breastfeeding was stressing me out and I was ALWAYS worried about my supply. He still gets a boob in the mornings if he wants, and if I can pump enough he will get a bottle of bm too.

I will be back to write more soon. Its playtime around here! Smile

Woot! I can not wait! The Ravens actually play at 4:00 today which means I can watch the game! Smile All season I have been working at 1 when the games come on, but this is only my 2nd oppurtunity to see a game Smile And of course, they will win Smile

It is snowing again here in Baltimore. 2nd time this year and it is not even winter yet. I don't mind too much, its just a pain for Derrick to have to go and shovel.

Saddam has been caught! It almost seems unreal. I really did not think the day would come. The world will be a better place now.

Ryan has slept through the night 3 nights in a row. I am so happy. I wish I knew what was causing him to give me such a hard time for a few weeks. I though maybe teething, but no teeth yet!

What a great Christmas we had. Ryan must have been super good these first 5 months cause he was certainly spolied! WE enjoyed a wondeful Christmas Eve at Derrick grandparetns and at his fathers house. We got many nice things ans so did Ryan. MY mom bought us a bagless Kenmore vaccumm adn I love it! I wanted a new one for christmas more then anything. At my moms, Ryan met his great grandmother for the first time. That was the 1st time I saw her in 4 years.

Derrick and I did not exchange gifts, but we are going to buy ourselves something nice this weekend. we got a ton of gift cards too.

My friend Jen is on her way to come visit us. She is like the only friend I have left since ihad Ryan. I guess once you have a baby no one wants anything to do with ya if they dont have kids themselves. Oh well we got family and thats what counts.
