Busy, busy, busy!

And I'm not just talking about Ryder

Two weeks ago I went back to school and last week I went back to work. I enjoyed my Ryder time so much it has been quite an adjustment.

My family decided they only need me 3 days a week this year. Their boys are so grown up! They are in 8th and 12th grade.

With that huge change it gave me time to take my last masters class. A blessing in disguise I guess. But still a ton of work with no free time to do it in.

This has also given Jason some serious daddy time! He goes into work early to come home early so I can get to class. His first day with Ryder he commented that he got nothing done...welcome to my world hunny!

Ryder has really been enjoying all this dad time! He's growing and changing and developing daily. Here is what he's been up to since my last post:

Noises - Ryder makes all kinds of sounds, gurgles, growls, giggles and screams. He cracks us up!

Food - Ryder has tried carrots, squash, applesauce, prunes, pears, apricots, peas, green beans, bananas, etc. He is really starting to enjoy food time with us! He now grabs for whatever we have. So foods he can hang onto and suck on are great. Melon, bell peppers, cucumber, ...

Movin and shakin -Ryder is crawling everywhere! He started to crawl on august 17. He wasn't too coordinated. Within a week or so he was crawling over things like or leg or a toy. Now he is crawling up us and pulling up on things.
