3 comes before 4

I do know how to count.
Truly I do... therefore, I am well aware that Ryder's 3 month pictures and whatnots need to be declared before he reaches the ripe old age of 4 months... which is rapidly approaching.

for prosperity's sake I should mention that Ryder turned 3 months old on April 14th... yup, almost 2 weeks ago. (as stated above... I am a tish bit behind)

Although there is no formal Dr.apt at the 3month mark in which to get accurate stats, by happenstance, I know the exact approximate poundage and lengthage of my youngest offspring.

Ryder Andrew is weighing in at the 17 pound mark. He is round and squishy and hides things like lint and other fun goodies in his rolls and crevasses.

He is around 27 inches tall give or take a few dashes.  Which puts him in 9 month clothes... some 6 monthers are still OK, but are getting mighty snug.

Incidentally,we just moved up to size 3 diapers... which I should have done long before now. Ryder is king* of the blowout... therefore requesting, by a mere 2-4 outfit changes a day, that I should have just chucked the size 2's no matter what I paid or how many I had left.

Ryder has officially found his hands, which has exponentially increased the slobber and that makes-me-shudder sucking noise. He has even rolled over a couple times from front to back. He is the smiliest kid. He LOVES to talk to you and if you are kind enough to get in his face talk to him... he will reward you plenty with good conversation and even a polite giggle...maybe even a friendly fart... he is gassy!


I tried to get a shot of the boys in their Easter attire before church. It was WAY early... and this is the best shot...

and I have a family shot too... the lighting is terrible... so ignore that, but enjoy the fact that Ryder is now wearing sweat pants instead of his khaki's because the king* decided it was time to make a ruling.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures! What a beautiful family. I'm not sure if you get this much but Ryder has features that look very similar to his sweet sister. And BTW - I LOVE those rolls. How wonderfully squishy I bet they are. I pray your Easter and SPring are filled wit joy and happiness. I did get your email. I have not had a chance to check out your friend's music, but I will. Thanks so much for sending me the song. I am sure it will be well worth the wait. Thanks for posting new pictures of your big boys. Peace to you friend,
