Last week while Owen was playing in his exersaucer, Ryan was trying to show Owen how to play with one of the toys. Owen kept trying to put the toy into his mouth because he puts everything into his mouth. Ryan immediately starts saying, "Oh no! Oh no! He eat it!" "Oh no! Oh no! He's hungry!" Jeff and I immediately started laughing because it was so cute. Then Ryan says "Ryan's funny!" Even cuter.
For the past few days Ryan has been battling a cold. I have been trying to give him extra fluid. He is getting a very rare treat, juice. He now loves orange and cranberry juice and finds them to be the biggest treat in the world. I think they might even be ranked higher than cookies right now. Anyway, I gave Ryan a cup of 1/2 juice 1/2 water and a few minutes later he was hysterically crying. I ran into the other room and asked him what was wrong. Through big sobs he says "Ryan spilled" "Ryan made mess" "Neeeeddddd nakin" I told him we could get a napkin to clean up his mess. He said in his pitiful sad voice "Ok". When we went to go clean up the mess there was literally one drop of juice on the floor. The paper towel did not even get wet that is how little juice was on the floor. I couldn't help but find it funny that he had a complete meltdown about losing one tiny speck of his precious juice. And that the only way it could be any better is if he got to clean up his mess!
Ryan has really gotten into music here lately. When Nana flew here back in April she bought him a CD of his favorite band. Yes, Ryan has a favorite band at the age of 2. So now if we want to encourage him to get ready we just ask him if he wants to listen to his music and he starts trying to get ready faster. He will then run to the door and wait for us to get out to the car. See --- the music only works in the CAR for some reason. (I wonder how long we will be able to get away with that one?) As soon as each song ends, Ryan yells out Yaaaaaaayy, claps then says "Next song, it coming" It is SO cute the way his little voice gets so high when he says coming. He never misses a song. Each and every time one song ends he starts with that phrase.
Ryan -- you are so sweet and so cute. I love you!
