Ryder ~7 months~

Ryder turned 7 months old on the 14th.

He is still stinkin' cute.
(I hate to be the one to point this out...but we have recently noticed a very faint uni-brow... sigh... However, I feel this does not subtract from the cute just adds interest)

And still packing on the chub. Getting bigger then Milton...his favorite monkey.

At 7 months Ryder is heavy... 22 or 23 lbs and solidly in 12 month clothes... all 9 month outfits are like spandex, which causes me to yank and pull clothes on when we run out of clean summer 12 month sizes (which happens because he is a sloppy mess...(see below))... and causes others to look at him and question if he is getting proper circulation to his extremities...

Ryder is a raspberry master. With the constant raspberries and the teething his face IS NEVER DRY. Neither are any of his shirts...and he tries to eat bibs, so really the boy is a 24 hour sloppy mess... but a cute sloppy mess.

Our baby boy is now a champion sitter. He can balance himself great and even catch and correct himself when he starts to fall. He reaches well out of his immediate grasping range for toys and can now properly (re)insert a paci into his own mouth. 

 It is easy to get Ryder to smile. All you have to do is get directly in his face. Anything you do once there will lead to giggles, smiles, raspberries (lookout!) and/or grasping of your face.

And although he is not yet mobile...

He is working hard on becoming so.

Oh, I just love him!!! And what I love most is that he is the perfect combination of his brother and sister! He is so, so adorable! I do hope I can meet him (and you) someday...soon. *Working on it...getting closer to figuring it out!! :) Love and hugs to you!
