Lately...

Lately Ryder has started drumming on things - the high chair tray, our laps, the carseat, etc. And we have to admit, he's got pretty good rhythm. The main thing he drums on is the boppy if it's sitting in front of him. Here he is sitting on the couch having a nice little drum session...

He's also really liking his books - this is his newest night time book I got him called "I'll see you in the Morning."

Reading in the bath as well...

He LOVES bathtime now. We put him down in there so he can just kick all he wants and he loves the splashing!

Ok - so before you look at these pictures you have to let me explain. (I am aware that this could go on the warning label for a crib bumper!) He's of course started getting really wiggly and VERY close to crawling. (Let's just say he gets on all fours and rocks back and forth.) Anyway, the other night while I was at work Daniel put him down to sleep - or what he thought was asleep- but Ryder was fighting it really hard so he started wiggling and Daniel looked on the video monitor to see this...


He says he's sorry Mimi. :) Fortunately the bumper is still intact and just needed to be tied down on the ends. The funny thing is Daniel's mom said he did this same thing when he was little, but went as far as to chew the ribbon up and wrap it around his neck!

Ryder is getting lots of quality "daddy time" lately and it shows. He loves his daddy. The main things Daddy has been teaching him how to do is give high fives. And about a month ago he did it to a complete stranger at home depot, who was so amazed she called her co-workers over to watch! But this week Daniel dropped in at target (where we were shopping) on his lunch break. Ryder, sitting in the cart lit up when he saw his Daddy. Daniel walked up and said, "Ryder, High Five!" And Ryder reached up and hit his hand and squealed in the same tone and inflections what REALLY sounded like "High Five!" Daniel and I CRACKED up laughing and so did Ryder. We said, oh great, our child's first words are "high five!?!"
Here are my sweet boys Friday night enjoy some music outside at the domain after dinner...
