It seems like every day Ryder is saying something that I want to remember but never seem to get written down. He talks so well now, it is really amazing to me that one year ago he could not make any sentences. One of my favorites, that he has been saying for a while, is "Watch this trick" or "Look at this trick" and then he'll do something that he thinks we'll find cool and impressive.
Ryder is still a very good eater. He doesn't eat everything and there are things that he won't even try, but he does eat a wide variety of foods. It is fresh fruit season now and he loves it. He would eat a quarter of a watermelon or a pint of strawberries all by himself no problem! He loves picking strawberries from our garden and he is really interested in all of the other fruits and vegetables that we grow. So far peas and cilantro have been a hit.
Since February we have been doing "projects" at home- particularly of the baking soda and vinegar variety. Every so often he will ask to do a "project" and out comes the food coloring and a few other ingredients to make a fun mess. One time he was doing a "project" and ended up covered from head to toe in purple shaving cream!
About to jump, of course
What a smile!
Most of this shoot was spent focusing on those blueberries!
