one month later

That's right... he's 4 weeks old today. In a way I can't believe it's been that long and then in another way it feels like he's been here forever! Our life has changed in so many ways over the month. Let's see, for starters we do no get any REM sleep!! One night last week he slept for 5 hours and I woke up panicked that something was horribly wrong! But that 5 hours was a fluke I think, we're still averaging 3 hours at a time. But seriously life is different, but it's good. Everyone always told us this, but it's true, you never realize how selfish you are till you have a child! I also never realized how much time I had and how easy it was to do simple things like, oh, shower. :)

Now that Ryder's a month he's much more alert and aware of his surroundings. He responds to sounds and voices and smiles occasionally. (He loves hearing his Daddy's voice when he comes home!) His cries are starting to make more since and he's getting better at letting mommy know what he needs! :) He's gotten out of the house a good bit now- we've been on walks, shopping trips, to church and met most friends and we're planning on taking our first trip home next weekend! Tomorrow he gets to meet his Aunt KiKi :) Kirsten is coming from Nashville to spend the weekend with us! Yeah!!!

So here's a little video of Ryder TODAY...
