Welcome to our life!

Hi, I'm Allison! I'm a thirtysomething, freshly baked, stay-at-home mom. I'm originally from Connecticut, now living in Germany, hence the name of the blog. I live in southern Germany with my German husband and our baby boy. Life has turned out to be nothing I ever expected, and am so incredibly happy with it! We certainly do have a lot of laughs! I hope you will enjoy following our new experiences raising a little half American/ half German in a little German town.

Month by Month Ryan: Month 3

 February was an exciting month here in the world of Ryan.  Even though Little Pea didn't necessarily look too excited about turning 2 months old, we were!

I have to say, that looking back on this picture makes me smile.  I remember those little fisty hands, these are the things you don't really think about when they're gone, until you look back.  *Sorry, Mommy Moment*

Ryan did finally decide that two months was pretty cool, because he started to smile on his two month birthday!

And, although he may hate me for this picture in the future, Ryan's newborn "chicken legs" were finally starting to chunk up by the time Ryan turned two months old!  He even started getting rolls!
It was very clear by the beginning of February that Ryan was quite aware of everything going on and had lots of adorable faces to show for it!

Tummy time was exhausting, but Ryan worked very hard at it!
One of Ryan's favorite activites in February was looking at the "baby in the mirror," perched above his playmat.  Ryan could spend forever staring up at, and "chatting" with that handsome fellow!
Ryan also found his thumb in February.  Sadly, I don't have any actual photographic proof of this, but I sure do remember it.  He learned really quickly how to get his thumb to his mouth, and then would get all excited, and then, that darn thumb, would pop out the other side of his mouth.  It was a little frustrating to Ryan, but very cute to watch!
Our little heartbreaker also celebrated his first Valentine's Day!

Something that was really exciting for Mommy was that February also brought with it lots of eating!  Ryan consistently was drinking 180 ml of formula every feed, so Mommy upped his formula to 210 mL every feed. 

Ryan also had a really special event happen in February, that most babies don't really get to experience.  At the end of Februrary, Ryan, Mommy, and Daddy all hopped in the car and drove to Frankfurt to go to the US Embassy.  That was a day full of firsts!  It was Ryan's longest car trip, Ryan's first trip to Frankfurt, and most importantly, the day that Ryan became a dual citizen!

By the end of February, Ryan had really changed again.  He had really lost his "newborn" look, and we realized that we had an infant on our hands.  It was so fun to watch Ryan start to take in his surroundings.  He wanted to interact with the world.  Two months was a fun age!
