I can't believe it's the middle of August of the hottest summer i can remember, time goes so quickly. Ryder is so big, he's 12 pounds 13 oz. He is so much bigger than Ruby was i can hardly remember. Ruby is so smart and funny, i was watching something on soap net and she told me she didn't want to watch all this drama!!Too Funny. She also told me something was very impressive, she is only 3!! I don't even know what to say about her.

Welcome Kayleigh!!

Ruby and Ryder are big cousins!! Kayleigh Maria was born on July 30th and she weighs 8lbs.
Her mom, dad and Big Sis Madison are so thrilled. They are all doing very well!!
This month has been quite a challenge for me, adjusting to a newborn's schedule. Ryder is a great baby but he likes to party some nights! He's grown a lot already, he's about 13 pounds. I think Ruby was 13 pounds at 6 months!
Ruby has turned 3 years old. She is such a big girl, it makes me sad. I just don't know where the time has gone. She is so smart and funny the things she says, she makes me laugh all the time. Ruby just got her big girl bed with tinkerbell sheets. She has manged 2 nights in it so far. The first night she was up 3 times, at 3 30 in the morning i was talking the baby downstairs and when i walked past her room she screamed Good Morning!! And i had to explain to her that it was so not morning and i was going to try to get Ryder to sleep somewhere else, so i sent her to daddy. I hope she starts to like her big girl bed soon!!

It's been a while....

I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday. We had a nice time visiting with family and friends. Ryder got to meet some people and we brought Rubes to see the fireworks and after waiting over an hour, she had to go potty!! Of course while she was going the fireworks began and she missed half of them!! The heat really has been unbearable and i really cannot even remember the last time it rained. It does not seem like it's going to be any better until at least next week, maybe?
Ryder is so cute, he is doing really well, he is a very sleepy baby (during the day of course). He is a good baby. I love taking him on long walks and cuddling with him, he is a very cuddly baby. I made him a car seat canopy, the best thing ever for walks. Have a nice day, more posts to come.

Ryder has arrived!!!!!

Ryder Richard Heil has arrived right on schedule. He was born on June 11th at 11:31 a.m. He weighed in at a staggering 8 pounds. You see Rubes was 6 12 and she was 8 days late. So I was under the misconception that Ryder would be about 6-7 pounds considering he was born at 39 weeks. I was so shocked. It's really weird when you have a c section, i always call it the worst seat in the house. You are there all numb but aware and you need to find out all the play by play from your husband, the doctors and nurses. When they took him out, they said what a big baby and i am just laying there listening for a clue as to how big he actually is. It really is weird. The staff at St. Peter's Hospital was awesome as usual. They are such a great hospital to have a baby in. After Ryder was born, i had to wait in recovery for 3 hours until i could feel well enough to go see my baby. I got a few glimpses of him and got to touch him in the delivery room but i just could not wait to hold him. So then i finally got to go to our room and really see Ryder. He is so cute and sweet. He looks so much like Ruby when she was born. Ruby has changed a great deal, but she came out with black hair and similar expressions. It really is funny. I am one of those people who think that babies look like babies when they come out not really like family members or anything but he really does look like Rubes when she was born.
I was so excited for Ruby to meet Ryder, but she was much more excited to have a slumber party with Madison and Aunt Kathy. It's so funny, i was reading about transitioning kids to the new sibling and she was so not even interested. We try so hard as parents and kids still manage to rule the situation. But Ruby is very happy to be a big sister and she really likes him and thinks he's so cute. Ryder is a funny guy already he turns bright red from head to toe when he is upset. Then when you pick him up or calm him he changes back and he likes to look at things like he is really thinking about it, i always wonder what they are thinking!! He may have earned himself a nickname.......Red Ryder!!!
I managed to go home on Sunday, i probably should have stayed one more day, i am still very sore and not feeling very great. But i wanted to go home to my Rubes!!!
I could go on and on!!
Please continue to pray for my family friend.
