Yes, still alive and kicking!

Ok, so it has been a bit longer than I had wanted in between blog postings.  However, don't think that means we're going crazy with this parenting thing.  Oh no!  We're doing it, and I must say...we're getting it down pat!  Yes, there are some times that are tough, but all in all, I think we're doing a great job.  I'm with Ryder during the day.  Last week we took our first trip to the Galleria.  THANK GOODNESS  my friend Chrysa was there because I parked on LL2 which, FYI, does not have an elevator.  You should have seen the two of us.  It was a really good laugh!  I was carrying the car seat with Ryder in it, and Chrysa had to tote the stroller up the stairs.  I guess you had to be there because that didn't sound so funny.  It really was at the time.  
Last week I went to meet my girls from school for dinner.  It was tons of fun!  Let's just say...Carlita may have made an appearance!  Regulators on Karaoke??  Yes, that must have been Carlita!  haha...we had a BLAST!!  
Marc takes over Ryder duty when he gets home.  He does a great job!  I'll get out some and get some "me time" in.  You know, grocery store, post office, Walgreens.  I'm really enjoying being OUT of the house these days.  I had cabin fever before Ryder was born.  It continues! 
We have started using a little formula in Ryder's diet.  I haven't been producing enough milk for that big boy.  So...a few ounces of formula has been used.  He really loves it! He just LOVES to eat.  He has definitely grown, but we have not been to the dr since he weighed in at 10lbs 1 oz. So, I don't have a weight for you.  I can't wait to see how much he weighs now! 
This past weekend we went to Jen and Chad's house near the Woodlands.  Lindsey, Jeremy, and Hutch were there.  It was great to see them.  I don't have any pics, but I think Lindsey does.  I'll try to get them from her.  We had a lot of fun!  
Ok, well, I'm going to stop now because I have a feeling this is probably really boring for everyone other than me.  Here are a few pictures of Ryder at 3 and 1/2 weeks.  Tomorrow he will be 4 weeks old.  Wow!  That's unreal!  

Look who got a hair cut!! 

OH!! I want to add...Ryder and I went for a walk this morning.  It was awesome!!  Fall is in the air and I cannot wait!!  I LOVE FALL!!!  


  1. I LOVE the pics! Especially of him in the polo & shorts- how cute is that??? AND, check out that 'hawk! how funny!!!! Sorry- can you believe I took ZERO pics last weekend? I am so mad at myself! I think there was just way too much going on & I was too busy running my mouth. Love you sister!

  2. OMG! That little man of yours sure is a cutie pie! He's gotten SO big!!! I can't wait to hear his new stats from his next well check! You're doing a great job Momma!
