Depression isn't something one can control. We can feel happiness for a chunk of time and then suddenly be overwhelmed with sadness and despair. We don't ask for it, nor can we predict when it will hit us. It can last for minutes, hours, days, months or years. We pray when it hits it's just for a moment until we can see a glimmer of hope...light...whatever it is that makes people get through the day.
If you are lucky enough not to suffer, then please just try and accept. Just love us. I feel beyond help. I don't want advice. I just want love and acceptance. I judge more than you ever could. Just love me. It's okay.

Ryan has learned to laugh by opening his mouth really wide and sucking in air. It's so funny to watch and he sometimes chokes on his own laugh. It's so silly. He smiles constantly which just brightens up our faces whenever we see it.
Ryan also loves to stand. He can sometimes stand on his own for a couple seconds but his legs tire out quickly. He wants to and I have a feeling he will be an early walker/runner too. You can just tell he wants to get up and go! Mama is going to get her exercise in, that's for sure. She's looking forward to it though. Nothing like wee-ones to keep a body young and alert.
Baby boy has started loving to be swaddled and put in his his swing. It's two of his favorite things. Another favorite he has is his toy Cookie Monster. He laughs and talks to him like he's an old friend.
We cannot wait to see what else Ryan Thomas has in store for us.
