John Ryman, you make us laugh all day long. You love to "dance" which means you shake your head back and forth. You are very determined and if you can't get somewhere you want or your walking toy gets stuck, you grunt or let out a "roar". Whenever you are doing something you know you shouldn't be doing and we catch your eye, you show us a sweet sly smile and start giggling! You make the best expressions and noises- always entertaining us!
This boy is always moving. Always Moving!
I rock you and feed you a bottle... you dance with your feet the entire time. If you have your bottle alone... you walk and crawl around with it in hand occasionally stopping, tossing your head back and throwing the bottle in your mouth... then you just keep on moving.
After naps when I hear you waking up, the second I open the door you pop up smiling and proceed to jump repeatedly up and down. Wish I could wake up that quickly!
If I let you play in the living room, you will speed crawl out of sight and hide silently in our bedroom closet, laughing when you finally turn around to realize that I was sneaking behind you the entire time! Nana B. sure loved watching you get into everything because she said your mommy was the same way. Busy bee. Not bad, just ACTIVE.
You sure love your books. I set up a little gate at your bedroom door so you could have quiet room time. If the gate isn't up you just crawl from room to room, never stopping, but when it is room time, you love it! You will sit in their talking happily and playing with toys, but you always end up in your book corner turning pages back and forth. It is so sweet to watch you contently reading and babbling.
You are still saying about the same things as 8 months and love to blow raspberries! You also learned to kiss (mouth wide open and you say "Muah") too cute!
(I have put Fenugreek on my list for future babies and feedings to possibly help keep up my supply... any other future tips?)
You continue to be mommy's shopping buddy. Smiling at every person you see or making interesting noises with your mouth ;) such a boy! You only have your two bottom teeth, but those top gums are really looking different, so the others can't be far behind. We both love this cooler weather and getting outside for longer periods of time. Glad to start back our park days like we did when you were little!
We love you sweet boy. You are such a JOY every day!
