The Holidays and Jane.
So first I need to apologize for the delay in updating everyone on the current happenings in the world of Jane. I guess no news is good news, right? So the past month or so has been really great. The holidays were a blur as I’m sure they were for everyone. We spent Christmas Eve at Pop's and Jane got clothes. Christmas day at Momma’s and Jane got clothes. The next week Jane and Jen were up in the Bay Area with her family and yep, Jane got clothes... well kind of... she got a Princess Leia costume and a Star Trek onesie - So it looks like her future high school struggle begins now. ;)
Jen and I have both been doing really well; work has been crazy as usual but seriously if it wasn’t called work I’m sure none of us would call it crazy. Jane has been really funny lately and I realized how happy I am to have her because she loves to listen to the guitar and (more importantly) she loves it when I sing out of key to her! It truly takes no effort to make my voice sound out of key either because that’s naturally how it comes out. So with the Star Trek onsie and me teaching her to sing out of key things are really looking up for her.
She is really starting to mimic everything we do with our mouths, which is adorable because... well it's just adorable.
This past weekend we had a Politically Incorrect Party for my 30th and our friend Wallis’s 25th (again) birthdays. Those that know us know that we all like to laugh and what better way to do it than to dress up in a very politically incorrect outfit and enjoy making fun of stereotypes all night... I was a drunk, gambling "Native American" (Indian = feather) and Jen was a Sprint customer service rep (Indian = Dot). Jane wore a sign on hat that read, "Now that I'm safe, I'm pro-choice". It was at this party I realized that Jane is gonna be a handful... man she wants to be involved with everything that’s going on! If there are people around then no nap time for Jane, she wants to be a part of everything. She slept in till 7am on Sunday so maybe she was hung over...
Once again now to being serious: Jane is growing! I think she is 10lbs 4oz now and eating like a champ. Her last doctor appointments have all gone well, so that means the surgery served its purpose and hopefully we can make it out of swine flu season until the next one so that the grandparents can actually visit her in the NICU. I'll keep everyone posted on when the next one comes along...
Other than that all is well and thanks again for the support, Jane loves it!
-Ryan, Jen, and Jane
