This last month has been crazy.  Ryder has gotten so big and so mobile!  He’s still not crawling properly but who needs crawling when you can walk?  And run?  We still need to lend at least a finger to help him along but he’s about a week away from going at it alone. 

Ryder’s doctor visit was a week ago.  He weighed 21 lbs, was 29.5 inches tall.  He’s in the 75% for weight and 90% for height.  He’s a big boy.  He did really well at the doctor and only had one shot.  We didn’t have too many questions for Dr. Metsch this time around because things have been going really well.  Ryder’s eating EVERYTHING, sleeping all night long and taking three naps a day.  Life is good.

He can say a few words – Ma Mom, Da Da, Ba Ba and most recently, he’s working on Na Na and the ever popular “HEY!”  He babbles away all day long.  Practice, practice, practice.

We’re starting to think about trying for number two baby which is exciting and scary at the same time.  While this last nine months has rocketed by, I can still remember the first two months when we were so sleep deprived and the feedings, oh the feedings.  I’m not sure I really want to go there again so soon.  Plus, it has been so nice getting to drink whatever and whenever I want.  But, we want the kids to be close in age and we might as well get the hard stuff done with.  Of course, there’s also the feeling that once this next pregnancy is over and the baby is born, that will be it.  I will never have that awesome experience again.  That makes me sad.

More to come in the next few months.  I wonder if RyD will be walking on his own the next time I update my blog??
