Well, our baby boy is finally over his illness. It took 8 long days to get over, but he's back in action now. We still don't have him around children for another week in case he's contagious but we are so glad that he's back to his old self. He's doing some new things these days. If you ask him if he's hungry, he'll head straight for his highchair. Ryder has a purple squeaky toy and Renner loves grabbing it and then having Ryder chase him. It's their little game they play. It's precious. He's very independent. He would much rather do things and figure things out on his own. He's also quite stubborn (hmmm...I wonder who he gets that from...sorry, Renner...that's Mommy's trait). We are trying to learn what type of discipline to use when we need it. We know it's a time of learning on both parts, but he just doesn't get it a lot of the time. He grabs wires from the tv and we tell him no and give a little spank and then remove him from the situation but he just keeps going back. It's so frustrating. Something else is that he doesn't like mushy food and meat. We try to give him a variety of food all the time but he does have his favorites...breakfast bars, apple, pancake, toast, etc. Recently we tried carrots, pork & rice, egg fritatta and bacon, but he wasn't too keen on those things. I guess we just keep offering until he tries things and ends up liking them.
This past weekend we put up his new swing in the front yard. He loved it! Then we pulled out his John Deere ATV into the front yard and let him play. His favorite thing had to be walking/crawling up and down our sidewalk. That's about it for now. Thank you so much for keeping Renner in your thoughts and prayers during his illness. Much love to you all!
Celebrating the 4th!
