Looking Back...

Not only is today the first day of 2012, Rylan is 5 months old! Before we look to the future, let's take a quick look back...
Happy Birthday Rylan! August 1, 2011
7 lbs 13 oz.
21 inches
Eating every two hours.
Several hours after being born, he was lifting his head and looking around.

                                            Two weeks old!
                                            8 lbs 5 oz. Eating every four hours.                                          
                                            This was when mom had to go back    
                                             to work :(

One month old
First time in the pool (thanks Florida weather)
By this time he was eating every 4 hours with a 6 hour stretch at night.
He lost most of his hair and was bald! He was holding his head up by himself. He was already wearing 3 month clothes.

         Two months old
         He was smiling and laughing in his
         own "suck air in really fast" kind of
         way. He LOVED his paci and
         began to play with toys. By this
         time he was sleeping 7+ hours  
         each night. His 3 month clothes  
         began to get smaller.

  Three months old
By this time he was sleeping 8+ hours every night and sucking his thumb quite regularly. He still hadn't mastered the hand placement while his thumb was in his mouth. He began going to Busy Bees for daycare. He was rolling from side to side, but not able to roll over yet. This was the month he was introduced to formula. He was transitioning from 3 month to 6 month clothes.

                                          Four months old
He began to play a lot more. He loved playing in his jumper, a car of course! He had mastered sucking his thumb and abandoned his pacifier. He also began eating solids. During December he tried squash (loved), sweet potato (liked), peas (disliked but ate), bananas (loved), as well as various sweet treats snuck to him behind Matt's back. (cough cough Uncle Drew!!)

And over 14 lbs, he is 5 months old today!
Sitting up and rolling around. Almost crawling. Talking and beatboxing up
a storm. LOVES playing with his toys and taking baths. His favorite food is still
squash. He sleeps for 8+ hours a night. 

Where did my baby go??
