I forgot to mention in my last post that Ryan is eating cereal now and will start on baby food Sweet Potatoes tomorrow!

Update on Ryan


I wanted to update everyone on Ryan's progress because he went to the doctor yesterday.

Ryan was 13 lbs. 11 oz. and is 22 inches long. He's still negative in the height category, but his weight and head circumference are almost 5% which is good because that is based on a 6 1/2 month old (not adjusted for Ryan's prematurity).

The doctor was so pleased because Ryan is doing so well. He's been cut back on physical therapy from once per week to once per month. Most of his development is closest to the 6 1/2 month range although one or two things are closer to 4 months (like sitting up and putting weight on his feet). He rolls over, laughs, smiles, "talks" to us (he can say goo, ga, ba) and he is at the early stages of trying to crawl.

We are so happy that he is doing so well! Thank you to all of you for your thoughts and prayers.

Have a FANTASTIC October!


Overall, we are so happy is doing so well.
