Notice the phone making its appearance again. Let's just say we will be switching to a sitting or standing position for the next set of photos because I can't take another session of trying to make Ryder lay still for a photo. Here's what Ryder has been up to this month.
*Giving big cuddly hugs
*Wearing 9-12 month clothes
*Banging things, everything
*Pretending to talk on the phone
*Becoming a picky eater (Boo!)
*Showing more of his will and personality
*Ryder took his first steps (two to be exact) willingly tonight. He went from the ottoman to the couch right in front us. I guess it was his little gift to us for a year of caring for him. He has taken steps on his own out of fear or without knowing, but tonight he chose to step on his own.
