Ryan's 9 month appt

I took Ryan to his 9 month well child check-up today. He was 21 lbs, 9.6 oz and 30 inches long. That was 50 - 75% in weight and 95% in height. He's developmentally on par for a 16 month old - so following in his brother's footsteps already. Which of course is probably why he's doing what he's doing already -- he really wants to keep up with his brother! He's pulling up on everthing and standing and bouncing now. He's moved his feet a bit but no clear steps. No shots today so that was good. Next appt is after he turns 1 and he will get shots and have to have blood drawn then :( First birthday - WOW - hard to believe it's just around the corner. We got all of the paperwork done at the dr to leave the boys with my mom for a week while Russ and I go on our cruise. We're getting really excited for that - but lots to get done before then.

I guess that's all of the updates for today. Will work on trying to add pictures to this sometime this week!

Growing so fast!

Well... Russ is out of town (Frozen Four) and I'm flying solo tonight. I was doing laundry while Reid was in the bathtub and Ryan was satisfied playing with toys on the bathroom floor. He's pulling himself up to standing now so stands outside the bathtub and just laughs and plays with Reid. I figured it was a perfect opportunity to get something done. Then I'm folding laundry and realizing that it's oddly quiet in the bathroom. The giggling and banging of toys has ceased and I can hear nothing... I head for the bathroom and see Ryan sitting on the floor eating the end of the huge pile of toilet paper that he's unrolled. Reid is laying in the tub on his stomach. I ask Reid "why didn't you tell me Ryan had the toilet paper?" Reid simply replies "Am I the boss now?" I laugh and say "sure" and Reid just starts saying "No Ryan No." So I guess he gets that don't be bossy lesson we've given him a few times :)
