Swim Time

I have been slacking on posting pictures. Last week Ryan went to his first tailgate party, USC vs. Ohio State. If anyone doesn't know the out come USC won big. Ryan did good but it will be a lot more fun for me when he gets a little older. I didn't get a picture of the tailgate which is hard to believe with all the pictures I take and all of them of Ryan doing the same thing.

This weekend USC didn't play so Saturday we enjoyed an afternoon at Kelly and Lloyd Tiffany house. They have two kids Morgan age 3 and Brian age 4. Ryan had is first experience with the pool, he seemed to like it which means he didn't cry. I think he could be the next Micheal Phelps - probably not but you never know. He would be 20 for the 2028 Olympics.

I am sure Ryan is going to hate me one day when he sees this hat.

Finally a smile

I really never thought I would be one to go crazy over pictures of my kids. I got a coupon in the mail for a free portrait at Sears so I decided try it out. The free portrait thing is a way to get you in and buy more and more and more pictures of your kid. Ted is going to kill me when he sees all the pictures we are getting in a few weeks. All of you family members will be getting a picture of Ryan whether you like one or not. Well, besides Ryan's breakdown in the middle of the session we managed to get a picture with a smile. I am going home to AZ in a few weeks and Racquel's sister-in-law Gina takes great pictures so I hope she can come over and get more of him smiling.

New Hat

Ryan and I are going to AZ in two weeks and it will most likely be 100 degrees while we are there so I thought he might need a hat. I think I like it more then he does.

Cousin Time

Ryan has a lot of cousins from the Desert, LA to San Diego I think there are 16. 5 of them born last year. Gabi and Sophia are 3 months apart and I can already tell they will be putting Ryan in his place as soon as they can. Sophia is the daughter of Joey and Jenny Moreno who live in the Desert, she is adorable. I didn't get pictures of Richie, Gabi, Camille or Desmond but it was a house full of cousins. It was so fun to have all the kids around and know that Ryan will have so much fun with his cousins.

Sophia being serious - she is such a cutie!!

So Serious

I can't seem to get a smile from Ryan on camera so I will continue to post the serious pictures.

2 month check up

We took Ryan for his 2 month check up (he was 2 months old on Labor Day). He weighed in at 13.5 pounds and 24.5 inches. His height is in the 95th percentile and weight is in 90th percentile but weight to height is 75%. All being said we have a healthy growing boy. After two months of painful feedings and poop issues, he has been diagnosed with GERD (acid reflex). All along I thought it was gas but all the symptoms lead towards reflex. It is painful for him during and after feedings, sometimes worse then others. Unfortunately there is not much you can do for it and he will eventually grow out of it.

Ryan's new favorite is his bouncy chair which I call his baby recliner. I wish I had a vibrating chair :). He will sit for an hour looking around. Not that you can tell from this pictures but Ryan is starting to smile (every so often) but I haven't been camera ready.

Game Day

Labor Day weekend was the first weekend of Collage football. That means that our Saturdays will revolve around USC football. This week USC won 52-7 against Virgina. It was more like a practice. We spent our first night away from home since Ryan was born at Frances and Richard's house. We had a great time and Ryan was on his best behavior.

Fight On Richie!!!

Ryan's first of many USC outfits.

I love this picture of Gabi playing with the hair bows.

Spending time with Gabi and Ryan.
