Ryder is fast approaching 1 years old. 1 YEARS OLD!!!!! He is now just over 11 months old and today, Feb.26th, I can say that he is officially walking. He's been taking steps and walking from one strategically placed rubbermaid bin to the next for weeks, but today, today, he followed Scout from one end of the house to the other without rubbermaid bins or my finger!! We have emptied all of the heavy books from the bins, filled them back up with their original contents and piled them back in the basement. Ryder now has only Scout and the couches to hold him up when his newly discovered legs become weary from all of his walking!!
In his tenth month, Ryder started climbing stairs, chewing on his crib, tried Homo milk (not a fan yet,) worked on independant walking, recognized certain objects, like his big stuffed horse. He recognizes him, by his name: Beans. He tried a chocolate dipped strawberry on Valentine's Day, He flew to Phoenix, slept on a mattress on the floor in the rental house in Phoenix, started pushing toy trucks everywhere, got his first big bruise on his head as a result of a run in with a plastic truck and he outgrew his winter snowsuit!!
Only one more month and he will be 1 YEAR OLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How does time fly by sooo fast???
