The Little Dude

How did I get so lucky to be this happy little guy's mom?

Man this kid is adorable and makes everyone who meets him smile really big.  

He doesn't get nearly enough blog coverage lately because I've been crazy busy with commitments to my Toddler Approved blog, preschool, church, and the other little people.

I do however manage to snap pictures of most of the important moments. Here are a few recent ones. They are usually posted on Facebook or Instagram too.

Playing with Catie... he will hang out and watch her forever and she randomly babbles at him

And she also kisses him and rolls over like him... he loves her and she loves him...
until he finds her hair and pulls it

Ryan was introduced to solid foods this week. So far he's tried mum mums, sweet potatoes, and oatmeal.

Aunt Jessie introduced him to the sweet potatoes and he liked them, but he loved having her feed him and talk to him even more.

All dressed up for church. He doesn't nap at church... which makes the three hour block seem very long. Fortunately all other days if we stay home he'll usually take a nap from 9-12 or 10-12, another one from 1-3 or 2-3, and another one from 5-6. Depending on our schedule he either gets all three naps or just two. Fortunately so far he's been pretty flexible.

Ryan likes to be part of things. The big kids always make sure to give him a light saber so he can participate in little duels.

Ryan goes to bed around 7:30 or 8 or 8:30pm depending on what time he's gotten up from his previous nap. I usually get him for the day at 7 or 8am. He sleeps part of the night in the guest bathroom and then we move him into the family room to sleep once we go to bed.

Little dude is very determined.

He won't sit still and wants to be reaching and moving on the floor if he is down. He wants to be part of the action. I was really hoping for a baby who would sit and play with toys and be content. Looks like he will not be that kid. He is already trying to move his arms and slam his legs to get himself places.

He gets really mad if he can't reach something and is so proud of himself when he does.

He turns 7 months old next week. I can't believe it. He is almost 20 lbs so my arms are exhausted all the time. I love cuddling him and kissing him and he has the best little giggle!

We are so fortunate to have him in our family!
