3 Months / Christmas Kick-off

Well, this (not so little anymore) little man is 3 months old now. I can hardly believe it. I feel like our lives are just running at break neck speed and I'm trailing behind yelling, "Wait, slow down a little." He is growing, growing! He weighs in at a whopping 14 lbs. He is smiling all the time now. Aydin was a very content baby, but not easily amused. Rykin smiles on demand. I love it! He is reaching for things now, and sitting up in his Bumbo. Just doing great!
Above is my all-time favorite shirt!
He LOVES his big sister! She is not so keen on having to share her space sometimes, but she loves him too and is willing to put up with it if he'll smile at her.

Over the holiday weekend we went up to Beaver Meadows to cut down our Christmas tree (one week later than I was hoping, but it was a beautiful day!) She was so excited to get on her snow pants and play.
Rykin was a little less keen on the idea of getting all bundled up.
We told her we were looking for a Christmas tree so she would point up and say "like this one." We settled on the one above.
She picked out her own ornament last year, and again this year. After a lot of debate she came away with Tom & "Jeremy" Go figure ( ; (and yes she is wearing a "cast." She fell off the couch on Thanksgiving and hurt her arm. We took her to the doctor on Friday and he said that he thought it might be broken and splinted it. We went for x-rays today and it turns out she does have a broken wrist. She will have to wear the splint for 4 weeks. She's okay and it doesn't seem to bother her too much. We'll just have to try and figure out how to keep that thing clean. It is already covered in yogurt, soup, and ketchup.) The house is now almost completely decorated, and it feel so much warmer and more comfortable with the decorations up.
