Ryder at 8 Months

Yes, it is time for our monthly update on Ryder. Brace yourselves...he is now 8 months old!!! At 8 months old, Ryder is...

*Regularly cruising the furniture...the wall...and really anything that he can pull himself up on
*Has attempted a few solo steps (only to fall)
*Is hard at work trying to master standing up on his own in the middle of the floor
*STILL is not sleeping through the night (this has to change some day, right?!)
*Is finally getting the hang of eating baby food (generally, eating twice a day)
*Has a new found love of Gerber Fruit Puffs (he buddies up to Garrett who gets a kick out of feeding him)
*Enjoys yogurt, saltine crackers, ice cream and pancakes as well
*Has a 100% mischievous look to him when he KNOWS he is doing something he should not be;)
*Is not afraid to fight for his toys and will pull them away from someone with gusto!
*"Yells" back when you tell him "no"...pretty funny
*Brings his hands together on his own for pat-a-cake
*Shakes his head "no-no-no-no" to get a laugh
*Is getting the hang of a drinking from a sippy cup (does pretty darn good with an adult cup too)
*Enjoys his toys...especially Weebles, books that "crunch", his Fisher-Price Zoo, and learning table
*LOVES, LOVES, LOVES shoelaces...he seeks them out and chews on them
*Recently, sat in the snow for the first time
