3 weeks old

It's so hard to believe that Ryan will be 3 weeks old tomorrow!  We just had his 2 week check up on Thursday.  He is one very healthy baby!  He now weighs 8 lbs. 11 oz.  which is a pound more than when he was born.  He also grew 1/2 inch.  He is becoming our big boy.  He dropped his cord so now he can take big boy baths and wear more big boy clothes (shorts/pants). 

We have truly enjoyed these 3 weeks with our little man and wouldn't change it for the world.  It's amazing how wonderful it feels to hold such a precious baby and that's my daily job!  It doesn't get better than that!  I'm really excited that we can start getting out of the house more now because I have begun getting a little stir crazy.  We've started taking him for walks in the neighborhood and we're taking him to his grandparents houses.  I will also be taking him to a few baby showers next week that I'm really looking forward to.

He has done pretty good with sleeping except for a few sleepless nights.  He's had 3 nights that it has taken til almost midnight to get him down and he wakes up every hour.  Those nights have been rough!!!  We think he may have some acid reflux because some nights as soon as we lay him on his back he starts burping and spitting up.  It worried me terribly at first but we looked it up and asked the doctor and it's very common in infants.  They said they will only medicate him if it gets very serious. 

Ryan was able to meet his great grandparents (Jamie's grandparents) today and gets to meet his great grandmother (my grandmother) on Monday.  It's so exciting introducing him to family and friends.  We're very proud of him and love showing him off!  :-)
