He is still eating more and more. The only thing he hasn't liked lately is hotdogs. Maybe it's because I get the gourmet ones ;) We changed his milk over to rice milk and that seems to have improved his life majorly. He can still eat yogurt, but milk seems to be too much for his system. He adores fruit, especially strawberries. I can't wait to give him some straight from the garden this coming month.
When he's upset, Ryder clearly says "Mama" and "Dada," although not frequently. He makes all kinds of sounds and it is clear that he is imitating our timing and intonation, but not any other clear words yet. He knows so many phrases/directions now. He will go to the right place if we say "breakfast," "lunch," "dinner," "outside," and "milk." In fact, if we say one of those words and don't do what he expects us to, he gets very upset. He will get things that we ask for and bring them to us. I would guess that he recognizes a hundred-ish words.
His top four teeth have come in pretty far and it seems like two more top teeth are popping through too. He seems to think that kisses involve biting. He gives me a sweet kiss on the cheek and then chomps down for the finale. He got his first haircut this month, which he totally hated! You would have thought we were cutting off his legs. He looks like a little boy now instead of a baby.
We took these pictures pretty late- we're both in our PJ's!
Not a bad haircut considering he spent the entire time trying to get away.
Taking a moment to see what's on the TV.
Playing with some blocks.
Tired boy with his binky and his froggy friend.
