You are now 19 months old -- all of a sudden I realized you are on your way to being 2 and it made my heart stop for a moment. I can't believe my baby is growing into a little boy.
In so many ways it feels like you are on the cusp. Still nursing but also wanting to be independent. Needing our snuggles and cuddling but capable of playing in the backyard with us checking on you.
Eating is going so-so. Some days you are a gung-ho eater and other days not so much. However, if anyone can get you to eat, it's Gramma and Papa, you'll try anything for them.
In a 6-week period, Mommy was gone for work all day on 4 separate days, and you didn't like that very much. But we both got through it.
Your favorite thing to do right now is read the 'Bear' books, such as Bear at Home, Bear on a Bike, and Bear at Work. They are such cute books and you point to all the pictures on the pages and have us name what you are pointing to. You and Daddy read almost every night while Mommy cooks dinner.
I love you, Ryan.
