He'll say "Ryder fix it" then he'll say "Mama turn". Everything he does, everybody else in the room has to have a turn too.
When I noticed his cheeks looking full it worried me and I told him to open his mouth. He can mind when he wants to.
Ryder is back on the shoe fetish. Any and every shoe he sees he has to try it on.
Ryder's bite mark. When I picked him up from school he had an accident report that he got bit but they can't tell you who did it. Well since Ryder doesn't forget a thing, as soon as I picked him up he was saying "child's name bite my back!" over and over. Ha ha! Sure enough he had a big mark on his back.
Still won't look at me.
It was a pretty bad experience. They had a jumpy there and he was going bisserk when we took him out of it because it was time to go. He screamed the whole way out all through the crowd, everyone was staring at us. Since we were already downtown we wanted Keifer's and hoped he would calm down. He did ok but still wouldn't sit in his chair. At one point he fell out crying on that nasty floor. He cried himself to exaustion and here we are as soon as we walked in the door to the house.
OMG Ryder has been sooooo extra sweet lately! This morning he was laying on my bed and I was putting his shoes on. I said "We've got to get your shoes on so you can go to school" and he sat up and put his arms around my neck and said "I stay here mama". Broke my heart :(
But as long as he's got his animals things seem to be okay. He has to see all of his "animal friends" before he goes to sleep and as soon as he wakes up. He instantly asks for the following: Cow, giraffe, monkey, scout, moose and rabbit. This particular morning he was a little upset so we carried rabbit and moose to the car and then into school. I was able to take them back home because as soon as we got there he dropped them and picked up something more interesting in the classroom.
It was so cute, when he walked in the door at school all his human friends were going "Hi Ryder, Hey Ryder!" And then after he told them hey back, he turned around to me and waved real big and said "Byeee mama!" It was just sweet :)
More sweets: At bedtime he requests songs. His favorites are Deep and Wide, Itsy Bitsy Spider and Joy Joy Joy Down in my Heart (Nanni taught him these). He also likes to sing Jesus Loves Me, He's Got the Whole World in His Hands and the ABC's. Melts my heart! And even better, when he wakes up in the mornings, instead of screaming the moment he opens his eyes like he did when he was a baby, he wakes up and starts singing and talking to his animals.
John Michael usually puts him down and they have started the routine of praying for family members and Ryder has gotten to where JM will ask him who he wants to pray for and he starts listing all his grandparents and aunts names, and even friends in his class. But he always starts it off saying "I pray for Ryder, and baby Ryder" every.single.time. So funny.
