About Me

My photo
I am a 29 year old first time mommy and I love it! I am a Medical Coder for a Home Health Agency working from home. I am also a wife to my husband Mike, 33 years old and he is a Computer Systems Analyst. We got married on April 16, 2005 and welcomed our first baby, Ryan Michael, on January 29, 2008 at 8:01 am. He weighed 6 lbs, 13.5 oz. He makes us so happy and we couldn't imagine life without him! Being a parent is so special and I wouldn't trade it for nothing in the world!

Ryan sits up by his self!!!

GOOD NEWS!!! Ryan has started sitting up alone tonight. I mean he has been sitting up by himself but with our help. Now he sits up without our help -from his belly or knees to his butt. Yay!! Then once he sits up, he starts clapping his hands. It is soooo cute! He is doing pat-a-cake and waving too. I can't believe how big and independent my baby is getting!!! One week from today, he'll be 8 months!

Ryan's First Halloween Costume!


So yesterday I bought Ryan's first Halloween costume! He is going to be a pumpkin. I hope he keeps the costume on, especially the hat because he's not really a hat person. I think instead of taking him trick or treating since he can't eat candy, we are going to my grandma's church to a carnival one night (which is what I did as a little girl) and then on Halloween night we are going to take him to my mom's and then to my in-laws to show him off. I can't wait!! I think he is going to be soooo cute. I'll be sure to take pictures!

Ryan's 1st beach trip!!




We took Ryan to the beach for the first time (Sept 10-Sept 13) to Atlantic Beach, NC. Although he is so young, I still think he enjoyed it. We took him down to the ocean and let him feel the sand and water. He didn't know what to think. He just stood there looking down. While at the beach, Ryan learned some new sounds...how to make a noise with his tongue! He was such a happy baby the whole time! He did very well traveling all the way there and back. He entertains himself and us by looking in the mirror and smiling and laughing out. He also done very well sleeping and taking naps in his pack n play. I thought we were going to have some problems but we didn't. He was awesome!

Poor baby!!

So Wednesday morning, Ryan woke up broke out in hives. We have yet to figure out what they came from. I took him to the doctor Thursday afternoon and the doc can't figure it out either. Poor baby! I hope he isn't uncomfortable and itching. Regardless though, he still seems like himself..happy and squealy as usual!! Mike and I are trying to narrow it down to figure out what it could that is doing this to him. I have washed his sheets, his blanket, and his little bear that he sleeps with. I am also washing anything that is new...bibs, onesies, etc. before he wears them. Another possibility could be the water I am using for his formula. I was using nursery water but then started filtering our well water. Now we are wondering if maybe there is something in our water that he can't handle right now and he is allergic to it. So, while I was out today I picked up some Nursery water and we will try that for a while to see if the hives go away. I hope he gets rid of this..it looks terrible and I hope we get it figured out as to what is causing this.

On a good note, Ryan has now started getting up on his hands and knees and rocking back and forth!! So, hopefully he will be crawling soon! :-)

Ryan says "ma ma"


Ryan started saying ma ma really well over the weekend! And now he is saying it all the time, more than any of the other words he can say. I love it! I can't believe how big he is getting. He turned 7 months old last Friday. My little man is growing up!
