Sleep and other stuff

I have had the best of intentions on posting this past week including post titles running through my head, but every time I sit down to write, I loose the thoughts. Not to mention that I want to post some pictures and I need to do that from home and free time at home is a lost cause!
Since we last spoke Ryan has learned to sleep! YUP! Down at 8:30 (with a bottle) and he only gets up once around 3:00 just to let me know he is still there. Usually he can put himself back to sleep after 10 minutes or so, but some nights I need to go and soothe him. I'd say it is 50/50. He then gets up at 5:00 for his breakfast and then sleeps until 8:30. This I can live with! And we are now thinking that baby #2 can be conceived any time after the wedding again!
Ryan has obsessed with animals. ALL of them, but he can only say DOG (or rather DODDIE) and every animal is a doddie. It is cute, but trips to the zoo are hysterical since Doddie sounds so much like Daddy that people must think my child is blind or else has a bear of a dad! We spend much time each day looking at books with animals and properly identifying all the different types. The babysitter is working on this too.
Can we say 8 teeth? YUP! Tooth number 8 has finally worked itself through the gums - YAY! It is so amazing to me how much happens in the first year of life. I feel like I am constantly waiting for the next big development. It is like one big, fun roller coaster! It is hard to believe that his birthday is in less than 2 months. Plans are under way!
We have booked a lodge at a local park for the big party since we will have close to 40 guests (hey, you're only one once!), and I need to figure out what to do for invitations and paper goods. The food is planned and needs to be ordered, but everything seems to be on schedule.
Mostly I have been consumed with wedding plans! I truly plan on posting about all that soon. Like tomorrow soon!

yah, I'm glad he's learning to sleep and fall asleep on his own!
