Changes Every Day Now!

I am amazed every day at how much Ryan has grown up. Today in particular I was noticing how many new words and phrases he has picked up. Maybe it is because I’ve been back to work and haven’t been home as much so I haven’t seen him. But today I sneezed and he said, “Bessa!” (translation: Bless you!). Later, he came up to me with an empty drawer from the little dresser where we keep diapers and baby clothes. He asked, “Aw gone?” I was in the kitchen doing dishes and just started talking to him about it. I said, “Yes they are all gone, but there is a new package in the living room. If you want you can go get them and fill the drawer back up.” I never would have thought that he understood what I said. I just know how important it is to just talk to your kids and explain stuff to them (Chuck and I are against baby talk – we just talk to our kids like normal!), but apparently he did understand me because he did exactly what I said. He went into the living room, found the package of diapers and piled them into the drawer! I was totally amazed!!! THEN, we were watching his favorite show, Yo Gabba Gabba. He likes to strap on his toy Gibson Guitar when he is watching the Super Music Friend’s Show and imitate the guitarists on the show which is SO cute. He will sway back and forth and pretend to play and sing, “Coo! Poo! Coo! Poo!” (translation: “It’s so cool in my pool! It’s so cool in my pool!” from the Aquabats song “Pool Party”). He also tries to do the dance steps during the dance numbers. He has me rewind over and over as he tries to figure out the moves and has actually picked up a few and has excellent timing. This child is not even two years old yet but he is so perceptive and coordinated and smart – I can’t wait to see what he does next!

Tristan is doing great as well. There is not as much to write about him because he is still so little – not even 3 months old yet. And he is the easiest baby – a true dream! So sweet and good natured, and just a total doll. We are so blessed. He started rolling over from his stomach to his back over a month ago, although he won’t do it every day for some reason. But right now he is in that place where he is desparate to roll over from his back to his stomach. I will find him in the crib all bent and twisted backward and to the side with his head wrenched around as he struggles to do it. It makes me nervous, but I know it is an important milestone, though I feel it is a little early for that yet! Ryan was early with everything too though. Otherwise, he coos and smiles and giggles like crazy – my little sweetie pie!
