Even at 5 days old he had an ornery streak because moments after this was taken he pooped all over GI Joe's arm. Ahhh memories. Also, this picture? Precious.
Heaven, help us. Check him out. I die. One month old. You always hear that the youngest kid in the family has the least amount of pictures. With the first, the parents are all gung ho and religiously have pictures taken every 3 months, then the 2nd comes along and it might be every 6 months, and then the 3rd comes along and you're lucky to have one a year. Well, I was NOT that kind of parent. In fact, I think Ryder has more pictures than anyone mainly because I was rebelling against the system and would not be the mom with no pictures of her youngest. So yeah, 5 days, one month, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 1 year, 18 months, I did them all. Then he started developing
an attitude, a personality and wasn't as cooperative so they became slightly more sporadic. But it wasn't due to lack of trying.
Taken at adorable months old. I'm too lazy to get up and look at the back to find out when it was. I realize I'm slightly biased, but c'mon have you ever seen such a cute baby? And this is how I remember most of his babyhood, such an easy, happy boy.
Fast forward eigh.....72 months later...
We couldn't be prouder! :)
