Dear Playful, Sweet Son,
Big things happened this month! You went from tottering around to walking to learning to walk faster! And you got 2 top teeth! Well, the teeth are still working their way out/down, but you can definitely see both pearly whites peeking through. I think you've already started using them to help you chew your food. When we are in the kitchen you LOVE to help mama and daddy out by letting us know if the toast has popped or the oven timer is beeping; you do this with very empathetic pointing and body language and then are delighted when we understand what you're pointing at and thank you. Too cute. Also every night before we start eating dinner you sign "thank you" to remind us to say grace before our meal.
You've finally shown an interest in reading books. Now you will sit in our laps and actually tolerate reading a book for more than 2 pages. It helps if we talk about the pictures rather than reading the words (you would think I'd never done this before).
Now that you can walk, it is so much more fun to be outside!
We love you, Ryan, it's so much fun to see you grow.
