6 Months? No Way!

Can you believe that Ryder is 6 months old? I still can't. It has gone by too fast. I keep thinking when 6 more months fly by he'll be ONE! Crazy! We have been truly blessed. He is such a good little baby. All you have to do is look his direction and he will flash an all out big grin. You can't help to smile at this guy. Everyone is always saying how happy of a baby he is and he truly is. He is a growing boy and has developed quite an appetite. He now eats breakfast, lunch and dinner and gulps it down in one swallow. It is not long after his meals that he wants a whole bottle, too. Sometimes it is hard to hold him off. He only gets three bottles a day now. A juice bottle after dinner helps us make it to the bedtime bottle. I am not use to this because food was and still is not a big priority to his sister, Ella. I think Ryder will probably one of those kids who wants to eat all day long! Anyway, he can sit pretty well on his own for a couple of minutes. He is not crawling yet, but when he plays on his belly he can spin in a circle to get another toy. He sleeps great and sleeps in in the mornings unless his sister goes into his bed and wakes him up! He has been such a joy in our lives and we hope he doesn't grow up too fast! We love you, Ryder.









These pics are my second attempt to take his 6 month pics. It was so nice one day so I told Jason that we should go and take his pics outside. So we ventured out and plopped him down on the grass. Bad idea. He was so mesmerized with the grass and leaves he would never look up. We were yelling and clapping but nothing would get his attention. So needless to say I had to retake pics inside without Jason to catch Ryder when he would tumble over. He only took a few spills! It is nice that Ryder is such an easy smiler, because getting him to smile and snap a pic would have been hard otherwise.
