30 weeks...

Here is what Baby Ryker is up to this week:
Baby measures about 17 inches from head to toe and weighs about 3 pounds. Baby is growing plumper and beginning to control its own body temperature. Eyebrows and eyelashes are fully developed, and hair on the head is getting thicker. Head and body are now proportioned like a newborn's. Hands are now fully formed and fingernails are growing.
Only 10 more weeks to go!!!

Happy Birthday, Bryan!!

Last night we had a little birthday dinner with some family and friends to celebrate Bryan's 24th birthday! I had my hands full so Bryan's little sis took over the camera for me and here are a few pics to share:

Parking lot s'mores!

I have never seen this before...I think it must be a Virginia thing.

(...don't forget to pause my background song at the bottom of the page before playing the video.)

Yum, yum!!

A musical treat...

Here is a video of Becky, Bryan's little sister, and Catlynn, our good friend, singing for our church (click here to see my other post about Catlynn). This was too good not to share:

Mission Complete!!!

I am so excited to put up this post!! We have been hard at work for about three weeks, and finally the nursery is finished!!! I am amazed at how this room transformed from what looked like a big storage closet, to a room fit for a prince---my little prince that is! So here it is:


...and after:

Week 27...can you believe it??

So this is what week 27 looks like!

Baby update:
Your baby measures about 9.6 inches from crown to rump and weighs a little more than 2 pounds. Hands are active and muscle coordination is such that he can get his thumb into his mouth. Thumb-sucking calms the baby and strengthens his cheek and jaw muscles. Your baby can cry now, too.

The rest of the nursery items have arrive so I will have a new post soon of baby Ryker's completed room:)

Making room for baby...

Things are coming along with the nursery...but we are not quit done. I am not ready to post up anymore pics yet...I want to wait until it is complete. It makes for a more dramatic reveal that way ;-)

But I do have some other baby related pics to post. We received Ryker's new ride today...his travel system that is.

(The strolled with the car seat/carrier attached. The back of the stroller has a bench seat for Cheyenne.)

(The stroller alone.)

(Car seat/carrier alone.)

Thanks again Grandma Nancy and Aunt Janice. Ryker will look so cool cruising town in his new travel system!
