10 Months

Ryan is 10 months old today!  These have been the most wonderful 10 months of my life.  There have been so many smiles, laughs, giggles, new discoveries, tears (both happy and sad ones) and memories made.  

Ryan is constantly learning new things.  He now prefers to feed himself and while he will still eat baby food, he has much more fun doing it all by himself.  There is not much that Ryan won't eat.  He is getting more confident on his feet and will take steps holding on with just one hand.  Paul and I thought we witnessed his first step the other night.  It was just one step and has not been attempted since.  Ryan is fascinated with opening and closing things, loves to play with the toilet paper roll and is constantly intrigued by things he should not play with.  He prefers to fall asleep on his own now and not get rocked to sleep (which makes me a little sad).  He has learned to wave, give high fives and Jeff is trying to teach him how to "rock on".  

I can't believe 10 months have gone by so quickly.  I try to take a moment each day to just slow down and enjoy it because it really goes by in the blink of an eye.

Wow, what a difference. He is just as precious as he was when he was born, even more so. We are so blessed to be called grandparents, a great honor.
