Cake Anyone?

September is birthday season in our family and Ryan now knows what cake is and YES he really likes it. So, I didn't really let him have cake on his birthday--I didn't want to give him sugar yet.
Well, now that he is old enough to demand what everyone else is getting it's pretty hard to keep it away from the kid. I know the picture looks weird but he really was enjoying his cake. Thankfully, it was home-made carrot cake and yes, gluten-free to satisfy Jeanette.

Speaking of Ryan, I'll give a quick update. He is talking a lot more. Still doesn't say mama really! He does say truck, car, hana (for Mahana the dog), dog, duck, dada, and several other words.

He weighs in at a big 22 lbs. 3 oz. and 30 inches long.

He enjoys reading books, doing simple puzzles, playing in the car with his keys, going down the slid (if it's the big one he wants someone go to with him) and "helping" in the kitchen.

Today he learned to climb up and down on the kitchen chairs and was so excited. Every time he had a successful attempt he would start clapping for himself and saying "Yeahhhh!!" until Mike and I joined in.

That's all for now!

Too cute!
I'm sure he was enjoying his cake. That carrot cake is yummy!!
Sucks that I have to miss all the September birthdays (except my own) but at least Mom is coming to see me this time (only because of the family history tour).
Johnny has been climbing chairs for a while now and it is not cute to me. It is really quite irritating. He truly thinks he can do anything that James does. Just wait till you have the second. He doesn't even want help going up the ladders at the park (although I insist for his own safety).
Can't wait to see you in 3 months! Ryan and John-Luke will be so cute together! We just might have to get some pics done!

I miss being able to see Ryan doing all these fun things. We will see you soon, though! In the meantime, give that little darlin' hugs and kisses every day from Grandma!
