Family Update--December

Hi, everyone! I promise I will get back to regular blog posting soon--enjoying my babymoon for a few more weeks, especially with the holidays approaching!

All is going so well for the Vega family right now--we are truly blessed! Ryan could not possibly be a better baby. He is sleeping for 3-4 hour stretches at a time, rarely fusses and has the most patient personality I've ever seen in a baby! He's growing like a weed, already 1/2 lb. over his birth weight! Unfortunately, I once again was unsuccessful with breastfeeding, but the important thing is that he eats well and is growing. We just love this new little addition to our family!

Little Henry is a very confused big brother, not quite sure of his new role! He is quite angry that he is not recieving as much attention as he did before, and becomes especially miffed when mommy has to feed the baby! All of a sudden, he has lost the ability to hold his bottle. We are just trying to love on him as much as possible, as well as pray over him for patience and understanding. I feel confident that he will adjust soon. On a more positive note, Henry is quite amused with all of the Christmas lights around the town, and really enjoys listening to seasonal music. He and I are celebrating my birthday together this evening (daddy is working ) with a dinner of roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, broccoli/cauliflower medley and sweet corn, as well as my favorite dessert, chocolate Cheesecake Factory cheesecake--yum!

Brett continues to excell in school, language arts and reading being his strongest subjects. We are really looking forward to his visit over the holiday break, as well as celebrating his birthday on the 23rd! He's very proud to be a big brother again.

That's pretty much it from the homefront for this month!


  1. I'm so thrilled to hear you are all doing so well! I'm praying God will give you wisdom in dealing with your toddler's transition into big brother role. My kids are so far apart that it was easy. Great to see your update!


  2. New babies are such a sweet blessing!! :)

  3. Congratulations on your new baby! He is quite cute.
    I wanted to apologize for never getting back to you when you had asked if I would be interesting in guest posting right after you had your baby. Those weeks ended up being very busy ones for me but I felt bad that I didn't respond.

    I hope all is going well for you!
