{Ryder: Month 6}

I think I start these recaps the same every month. How can my BABY be another month older and really falling out of that baby category already. I can't believe it's been 6 months since this handsome smiley guy joined our family. He is getting to be so so fun and funny. He is SO close to being on the move, he wants to crawl so bad. And thinks Delainey is the funniest thing ever. One of my favorite things is when Delainey gets him laughing and then they are both laughing. Best sound ever.

Hmmmm what to say here. He is a pretty good napper! :) When he's tired he gets fussy and then I just put him in his crib and he falls asleep. He always falls asleep in the truck.
Night time he's been a stinker for sure. He is up either twice or many times. We are at the point of letting him cry but he's relentless {he screamed for an hour and a half last night} and then I end up caving cause I am exhausted or feel bad for Delainey and Justin. Our doctor reassured me he doesn't need to eat during the night and he said I just need to put my "tough Mom uniform" on for a couple days...working on finding that outfit.
He is still swaddled but busts out of that real quick and I often find him on his side or tummy so I think I will stop swaddling him soon.

He is still nursing every 3 hours during the day. For the most part he is a really quick eater but is easily distracted now. I feel like he never really gets a full feed because he can't focus long enough and wants to be watching what Delainey is doing. Still is too cool for a bottle most times.

He has been eating for the last month now. Our doctor recommended we start food at 5 months if he was interested and oh he sure was. He has had oatmeal, avocado, bananas, apples, hummus & sweet potato. Along with the baby rice crackers and some Love Child Organics purees {Super Blends and Simple Firsts}. He will put anything in his mouth real quick too and has tastes of many things because of this! 

{diaper size}
We moved him up to a size 2 (Kirkland brand). No more baby poops either because he is eating solids which means no more crazy blow outs! Win.

He is wearing 0-3 shorts! Everything else he is growing out of all his 3-6 months clothes and even some 6 month rompers and jammies as they are too short. 6-12 is pretty much fitting other than in the waist in pants.

{hair color}
Brown. I feel like it's getting a little lighter and looks much better after his hair cut {these photos were all pre-hair cut!}

{eye color}
SO blue.

LOVES food. You pull out his mesh feeder and he does the happy dance. Will try and put anything food related that is in hands reach in his mouth and he is quick.
Watching Delainey. Trying to get Cruz.
Walks. Being outside and sitting in the grass.
Playing with toys.
Jumping. This kids loves the Jumperoo and Jolly Jumper.
Watching bike videos or hockey with Dad
The swing.
Splashing in the bath or water table. Bubbles.

Being tired or hungry.
When I don't go get him in the middle of the night fast enough.
Getting stuck on his hands and knees or belly.
Taking a bottle. Most of the time. 

{nick names}
Delainey calls him Ry or Buddy
Ry guy, Dude, Monkey, Love, Bud.

{moments to remember}
Sits like a pro. Mainly only falls down when he is reaching for something.
Had his first bleeding nose. He face planted into the shag rug reaching for a toy.
He gets on his hands and knees and rocks.
Can pull himself to his knees and standing.
We had to lower the crib mattress cause he can pull himself up in there {we didn't do this until 8 months with Delainey}!
Started on solids.
Drools like crazy!

We love you so much Ryder Keith.

He's so adorable!! I love that he's already needed his first hair cut! You have more experience in the department, but I say listen to your mommy gut about night feedings. He may be growing fast, but he's still a baby and one day soon you'll be wishing for those middle of the night feedings <3 xoxo
