As Riley gets closer to turning a year old, he is starting to really become mobile. Jon and I have had a few tough nights, when Riley refuses to go to sleep...he'll just stand up in his crib and scream. It scares us that he may try to escape from the crib, and fall and hurt himself. When he does finally go to sleep, Riley is out from about 8pm to 6:30am, and does not like to be disturbed. Riley's eating habits have changed a bit, as he refuses to eat baby food, and insists on eating whatever Jon and I are having. He has eight teeth now, and can chew just about anything. His new favorite foods are corn, beans, smoked bologna, chicken nuggets and ground beef. Riley got to try his first McDonald's french fry, which he of course loved.
He is able to pull up on anything and everything in our house, and has begun to side-step while holding onto the furniture. Riley is becoming more verbal, and has discovered books.
I say this often, but I can't believe how fast he has grown.
