This is Ryder and his bunny, Hedgehog, getting their groove on. Why is his bunny named Hedgehog? I don’t know, but you have to agree, it’s pretty badass.
Oh, the things you can do to the little ones. We’re really big fans of the glasses thing. Here’s evidence of our predilection:
I was painstakingly pulling small bits of red pepper out of a black bean burger in the hopes Ryder would eat something for lunch. He wasn’t interested in the red peppers so I did what I could. I asked him if he might like to try a red pepper and this is what ensued:
Ryder: “No. I don’t want to eat them.”
Caitlin: “They’re good.”
Ryder: “I don’t like them, plus, I don’t like them.”
Not sure when this next quote happened exactly. It could really be any day, any time.
Ryder: “I want to see more trucks! It’s the most thing I want to see.”
One day we took the El train to visit a friend. Ryder was enthralled by the little adventure. When we got on the train he looked at me and said,
“The doors open, like by their self.”
One day I was trying to get us all out of the house. This is not easy. Even if everyone has peed, Maisy has a fresh diaper, etc., Ryder sometimes decides that he isn’t interested in leaving our place. Here is a small glimpse into one of these times:
Caitlin: “Let’s go on a walk.”
Ryder: “No thanks.”
Caitlin: “Well, Mommy and Maisy are going for a walk. Come on, let’s go!”
Ryder: “Maybe I will come meet you guys.”
He’s got some great ideas, I’ll give him that.
