RYAN'S MILESTONES!!!
These milestones are in descending order

Too much for one subject line - Tuesday, July 31, 2007
Since I wrote about Ryan's milestones last, he has been on an airplane, played in the snow for the first time, got to see Grandma and Grandpa and Uncle Chris and Uncle Josh for FIVE weeks, learned how to count to three, started putting his shoes on by himself, ate corn on the cob for the first time and loved it, started potty training, tried the big boy bed but wasn't ready, said his first *bad* word (really bad - thankfully he no longer says it), started recognising faces and using proper names with them, and finally his vocabulary is exploding at this very minute.  He tries to mimick everything that we say, which is great! He said TWO new words tonight!  Cheese and Blue! yay Ryan!!

First Tummy bug - Monday, October 23, 2006
Okay, so this isn't really a big "milestone" but its still a "first".  Ryan started with his first tummy bug today!  He still acts like himself, but we know he isn't well.

NEW WORD!!! "WOW" - Friday October 13, 2006
I said "WOW!" to Ryan when we were looking at something, and he started saying "wow, wow, wow, wow"!

One year old and walking! - Sunday June 11, 2006
Today is Ryan's first birthday!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIG BOY!!!!!  This morning, Ryan was standing at the tv unit like he always does, and I was sitting on the floor.  I said "come here Ryan" he looked at me, and cruised towards the wall (oposite way to me!).  I said "please come here Ryan"  He did the same thing, cruised towards the wall, laughing the whole time.  I looked at him and said "come here Ryan, Mommy wants a hug."  He LET GO of the tv unit and walked the 8 steps to me to give me a hug!!!  YAY RYAN!!!

We have another tooth! - Friday May 5, 2006
total teeth... 3  YAY for teeth!  He got his top left tooth through this morning.  Poor little man is more than likely going to be getting his top right one shortly though, its pretty swollen.

Stood by himself (for real this time!) - Sunday April 23, 2006
He followed me in the bathroom, when I went to do my hair, and he pulled himself up on the bathtub.  He saw his toothbrush sitting on the side, and grabbed it and then let go of the bath and stood for about 20 seconds!  WAY TO GO RYAN! yay!

Stood by himself (with mommy's help) - Monday April 10, 2006
I stood him on his feet in front of the living room door to take a picture, and he stood there for about 10 seconds. It was long enough for me to take the picture, and he fell over.

 How Big! - Thursday, March 23, 2006
When you say "how big is Ryan" he raises his arms above his head!  Its soo cute!  He's also clapping on "command".  He's getting so big!!!

Cruised the couch!! - Friday, March 10, 2006

This morning, Ryan decided to crawl over to the couch and pull himself up, that's all fine and dandy, he's been doing that for a couple weeks now..... But then he saw something at the other end of the couch that he wanted. He CRUISED from one end to the couch to the other!!! Go Ryan!!!

Growls when angry - Tuesday, November 29, 2005

Said Daddy - Monday, November 28, 2005

Didn't say "daddy", but said "dada". Made me happy, but broke my heart at the same time, as I thought since I'm home with him all day he would say "mama" first. Bring on the babble!

I Was Born! - Saturday, June 11, 2005

Read the story how I was born in the journal section!!

 
- Thursday, May 26, 2005

37 weeks 2 days:
I think I'm starting to "nest". I don't have the *burst* of energy a lot of people say you get when you nest, but I just have this overbearing urge that the house needs to be clean, and kept that way. So I put up Ryan's crib today (with Mike's help) and tidied up Ryan's room. Then I cleaned the kitchen, bathroom, and our room. All I need to do now is vacuum all the rooms and all will be CLEAN!! I wonder if this is the nesting people talk about, cause I certainly don't feel like keeping the house THIS spotless all the time hehehe.

 
Full-term!! - Tuesday, May 24, 2005

37 weeks:
Made it to full term today! YAY only 3 weeks till due date! Baby is fully developed, just gonna gain weight now, till he decides to make an entrance.

20 weeks 1 day:
Went for my second and final ultrasound today! Found out we're having a little boy. :) We didn't get any photos, but we'll just say it was obvious, he's not a little girl. :) We'll be naming him Ryan Michael Fullerton. :)

 
Felt Baby Move For The Tirst Time - Sunday, December 26, 2004

15 weeks 5 days:
Felt fluttering for the first time tonight!! :)

 
Heard Heartbeat! - Monday, November 29, 2004

11 weeks 6 days:
Went to see the midwife after I saw the doctor and she said I might have shingles, to see if it would have any effect on the baby if it did happen that I got them. She said she would try to listen for the heartbeat, but not to panic if she couldnt hear it, because it was pretty early. She put the doppler on my tummy and found the baby's heartbeat right away!! She said it was very strong. :)

 
Ultrasound - Thursday, November 25, 2004

11 weeks 2 days:
didn't know I was this far along just yet, thought I was only about 10 weeks. The sonographer said to go with the ultrasound though because it is the most accurate since baby is still small enough to see completely on the screen. Baby was moving around a lot and it was just great to see that everything was good. :)

 
Doctor Appointment - Thursday, October 14, 2004

Confirmed with Anita at James Street Surgery that I was pregnant! :)

 
Positive Home Pregnancy Test - Wednesday, October 13, 2004

Something in my head kept telling me to take a test tonight, so I finally did, and it came out positive!! I couldn't believe it, since I was going to see a gynecologist on the 20th to discuss treatment, if needed, fertility treatment. I texted Mike, since he was at work and he was extatic!
