Riley is nine months old today!
pulls off his socks and sucks on them
tries to clap his hands but mostly misses
tries to find objects that are hidden behind things
plays pass with a ball
knows his name!
makes a particular noise to get his brothers' attention
still has 2 teeth
is comfortable going to sleep with daddy or mommy
flings unwanted toys, food, or soothers over his head and behind him
eating grass and rocks
spicy foods, including curries and peppers
french onion soup
wind in his face
sucking his toes
being left behind
having lego removed from his mouth
having anything put in his mouth, like vitamin D drops, tylenol, or spoonfuls of food
Riley is getting more opinionated these days! And infinitely more interactive and fun. Gone are the days of once a week poonamis. Since eating solids on a regular basis he poops every day, but they are not so explosive. He straightarms anyone he doesn't particularly want to be held by, and rolls so quickly and forcefully that he has fallen off my bed 3 times and the change table twice in the last week alone. Like a cat, he always lands on all 4s. He is a Rambo boy. He slaps, pinches, bites, scratches, kicks, and throws things. He is a VERY physical kid and I percieve we will have our hands full teaching him conflict management and social sensitivity!!! He bites me while breastfeeding several times a day. When I reprimand him in a stern voice he laughs. He may have girly eyes, but this one is ALL BOY. His favourite way to let me know he is happy to see me is to slap me with two hands excitedly! But he's a sweetheart and he means well.
