So our little Ryker had his surgery on Monday. His surgery was for Hypospadias which is a birth defect. The surgery went really well and he did good with his anathesia. His recovery took a while cause he was so tired and wouldn't wake up to eat. We finally got him to drink some pedialyte and then they sent us home. His surgery was at 8:30 am and we got home around 2 pm. He was really fussy Monday and Tuesday and it was so sad to see him scream and cry and know that I couldn't do anything to help him. He has been on pain medication which makes him sleep alot. He seems to be feeling alot better today and we were finally able to give him a bath today. The soaking seemed to help. I think he will be much better within a couple of days.
I've been slacking on updating the blog so lets catch up....sorry if the subject change is random :)
Ryker has been rolling over for a while now..one day he started and then the next day he was a pro...it's amazing how fast he picked it up. He loves to chew on his feet and suck on mommy and daddy's fingers. He figured out that if he shakes his rattles that they make noise...so now he just sits there and shakes shakes shakes and I love it! When he gets excited he opens his eyes really wide and squeals and then starts kicking like crazy, it is adorable. He also likes to pound on things...he is always hitting something with his hand...counter tops, furniture, his legs and sometimes mommy's face hehehe...he loves to feel the textures of things and will scratch them and rub his hand across them. Sometimes when I am holding Ryker while I am feeding him he will reach his hand up and rub my cheek and run his fingers through my hair..it's so cute...of course he usually ends up pulling the hair. He loves to laugh and recently he has had some really long giggles. He laughs when we make funny faces, play peek-a-boo, make noises and tickle him. He is such a happy baby unless he is hungry, tired or bored LOL. Ryker has started to sit up on his own...im sure soon he wont be tipping over anymore and then next comes crawling...YIKES!! Time is flying by. Last Sunday Ryker ended up getting sick with an Intestinal Flu. It was so scary..I went to bed sunday with a bad feeling but wasn't sure what it was well I couldn't fall asleep because of it. At 1 am I heard over the moniter a gurgle sound that sounded like him throwing up so I sent Dustin in to check on him, sure enough he had thrown up..and not just a little...ALOT, it was all over his face, in his eyes, all over his head and blankets. From the looks of it he had thrown up earlier but didn't cry so we didn't know and it had dried on to his face :( So we gave him a bath and put some new jammies on him and then he threw up again..he continues throwing up and started to go really pale so I took his temperature and it was really low. We ended up taking him to the Hospital to make sure he was ok. We got some nausea medicine for him and some pedialyte and he was better after a couple of days. It was so hard to see him sick like that. Today Ryker started playing peek-a-boo with me! He would pull his blanket up over his face and I would say "Where's Ryker" and he would hurry and pull it down and I would say "Boo" and then he would start giggling and repeat it over and over again..it was so cute and fun! Well Ryker is almost 6 months old now which means his surgery is coming up, it is scheduled for March 22, I'm scared. He is having surgery for his Hypospadia and I hope it goes smoothly. Also Ryker is getting to be so big..he is extreamly tall but still so very cute. Here he is with his 4 yr. old cousin Sage. We just love him to pieces! Also a new thing that has happened is we are just talked to our park manager about selling our mobile home...so next week we are packing alot of our stuff up and putting it into storage so that we can finish painting and doing the final touching so we can put it up for sell. We are expecting to have it sold and into be into a new house within the next month!! Wish Us Luck!!
So I haven't posted anything for a while so here is a recap of everything that has been going on lately.
So Ryker has been teething for a while now. His new favortie thing to do is grab your hand and shove any part of it he can into his mouth. He loves to chew on fingers more then any teething toy. He has been getting more fussy lately and it could be possibly because of the teething..my pooor guy
At Ryker's 4 month checkup we got his new stats, he is in the 95 percentile for height...the 75 percentile for weight..and his head is normal sized. Also at his appointment his doctor said we could start him on solids. Ryker has yet to sleep through the night and we thought solids might help. They haven't so far but I am hopeful!
Dustin, Ryker and I went down to Cedar City this last weekend for my brother's wedding. We also did all the decorations for his wedding since I own a wedding decor business. I think it turned out beautiful even though it was alot of work. At least I got alot of help with setting up from my family. This was Ryker's first trip and he did okay but he had a hard time sleeping. He had to take his naps in his carseat and then sleep in his pack-n-play at night...needless to say by the end of the trip we were all very tired.
And just for fun I am adding a final picture of Dustin and our friend Nathan taking care of the little ones while the mommies go to work!!! Wait doesn't this seem reversed roles? LOL
Ryker also rolled over by himself for the first time a couple of days ago. I don't have a picture because he did it at my office while I was working...but it was awesome. He rolled from his tummy to his back. He also did it again when Dustin came to pick him up...so Dustin was excited that he did a repeat for him. It's amazing how fast they grow. Ryker will be walking and talking before we know it!!
So I got our Christmas Tree decorated early this year and was way excited that it turned out just like I wanted! I borrowed the ornaments from my mom this year since we don't have many and they are beautiful!! Thanks MOM!!
