AND, for the most part, Ryan has stopped sucking his thumb. This is HUGE. He was HARD CORE. As in, every single one of my ultrasound pictures show him sucking his thumb. We've been dreading breaking this habit, but one day Dave simply mentioned to Ryan that "Big boys don't put their thumbs in their mouths." Ryan clearly did not like that, as he is very proud of being a big boy. And just like that, Ryan stopped. If he sucks his thumb in bed, he confesses it to me the next morning. What in the world?!? It's very strange, but I'll take it! I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that Dave is the one who said it; Ryan ADORES his daddy.
Another big thing in the life of Ryan was going to a baseball game recently. We went as a family and I honestly thought it was risky to bring a 2 year old to a game. But he LOVED it! He's still talking about it and always saying he wants to watch baseball on tv with Daddy.
And of course, he charmed alllll the ladies sitting around us with those big brown eyes and coy smile! He's getting so big so fast.
