{Ryder: 10 Months}


{What's new}
10 months!? Good lord. Who knew 10 months could go by so quickly!
He's a busy boy. But that's nothing new. He is determined to keep up with Delainey {& Cruz for that matter} and figures he can do whatever they do. He loves to climb and use his muscles. The crib is set at it's lowest setting now because he was flinging his leg up trying to escape one too many times and giving me a heart attack. He has figured out how to get onto Delainey's bed and ours and is 'this close' to climbing onto the couch. 
He has his 2 bottom teeth and knows how to use them! He is the smiliest kid and loves to flash his smile at anyone who chats to him. 

{Height & Weight}
28 inches
16lbs {this was last month}

Whatever Delainey is doing. 
Eating meals.
Walking pushing his walker or high chair or holding someone fingers.
Water and splashing. 
Climbing at the park. Playing in the backyard.
Playing under Delainey's bed and drinking from her water bottle.


When Delainey doesn't want to play with him.
Getting dressed and having his diaper changed. {Who ever decided snaps were a smart thing to make the majority of kids pajamas with...I'd like to have a word with you. Or better yet come get my kid ready for bed.}
When I am busy and he wants up.
5:30pm. He's hungry and the world is ending.
When you won't give him your can {beer/sparkling water}
When Delainey is playing at the table and he can't get up. He practically hangs off the edge trying to muscle his way up.

Dare I say he's sleeping well. {Except last night - he was up at 4:30am this morning!!}
He takes 2 naps a day - one around 8:30am and another around 1:30pm for 1-1.5 hours each. He goes to bed between 6:45-7:15pm. We used to get Delainey down first and then I'd nurse Ryder and put him to bed but he's been ready for bed around 6:30pm lately so we sometimes do him first now. {That gives Delainey more time to watch her beloved bike videos before bed. Some kids ask for cartoons - Delainey asks for bike videos. ;)}
Then Ryder is up between 5:30-7am.

{Feeding & Eating}
He is still nursing first thing in the morning and before naps and bedtime. I will start weaning him in the next month from the morning and nap feeds as I go back to work part time in October then we will just continue the night time feeds for a while.
He eats 3 meals a day with us and snacks. He loves LOVES loves food. The only thing he doesn't love is steamed cauliflower. Anything else he will gobble up - he easily eats more than Delainey. He feeds himself everything and he practicing with a spoon and fork and thinks that's very cool. He gets a big goofy grin when you let him use utensils.

He really is such a happy kid 99% of the time and we are so lucky he is pretty chill. He is losing his baby look these days and I know the minute he starts walking he will be running.
Gosh we love you Ryder - you are just getting big way too quickly though!
