Where’d my baby go?

This weekend I got to see my friends’ two-month-old baby girl. So teeny tiny!!! And I was thinking…. Ryan was teeny tiny… then he started crawling and walking… and all of a sudden–like there was NO time to prepare–he started talking (a few words), climbing, running, throwing, understanding, imitating, drinking from a cup and feeding himself with a spoon and fork.

I’ve just been thinking about Ryan and what’s new – things I should have included in his 6-month birthday post! So for my own general “records,” here’s some random stuff:

*he’s in size 3 diapers and has been there for awhile – and will probably stay there for awhile

*he now has 2 teeth. The second came yesterday and there’s a third working its way out too! Poor lil guy has been pretty miserable over it.

*we missed his 6 mo ped appt (ooops!) so no updates there. I’m guessing he’s… 18 lb,
