I'm constantly feeling as though I couldn't possibly love this boy any more than I already do.
Then, magically, it happens!

Here he is at a healthy 2 1/2 months and 12 pounds!



I hoped it wouldn't happen, but it did. Ryan caught Chloe's nasty bug Sunday night. Oh, what a joyful week it's been in the Andersen household! He hardly cries because he's quickly reminded that it hurts. Luckily no ear or eye issues like Chloe. Just a nasty cough, sore throat, lots of whimpering. It breaks my heart to hear his hoarse little voice pleading with me to make it better!


And yet even amidst the misery of this ailment, he still manages to smile for his mama.

Get better soon, buddy.

I hope he gets to feeling better soon, and Chole.

There is nothing more heart-wrenching to me than a baby cough. I'm sending good vibes your way. I'll send my potion one of these days too, I promise! It's just not happening today. Still need a couple of ingredients.

Oh that stinks, poor little guy. He is so so cute! I can't believe it's been 2 and a half months already! Crazy! I hope everyone gets better soon.

Oh my.....that little guy is beyond adorable. He just gets more and more handsome every time we see a new picture. These are all sooooo precious. The one before last is heart-wrenching - I can just hear your sweet voice comforting him, and he also looks comforted in Neil's loving arms. That last one - no words to describe how sweet.

And today this unhappy news - darling Ryan in the hospital with RSV. I know that anyone who sees this letter will pray for him. I know that you will be doing another post soon giving details. It is comforting to hear the calm in your sweet voice. It's so hard to watch your little ones go through such hard times. Bless his....and all of your.....heart(s). Prayers for Chloebug too. How is she?

Love you sooooo.....
Mama/Gma Jill & Papa/Gpa Roy

Believe me I know what you mean about not knowing how you could love him more, but then you do. Chloebug too I'm sure.

Love love love,
