Mr. Independent

First of all, thank you so much for all the sweet comments on Ryder's burn! It makes me feel so much better that things like this happen to every mom and a lot of you totally understood how I was feeling. You are all so sweet and your comments really made me feel SO much better! Ryder's hand is much better, the blisters were removed {without sedation!! He didn't even cry} and we just keep it wrapped with ointment and see his doctor every other day. The wrap should hopefully come off late next week. 

Anyway, The past few weeks Ryder has all of a sudden got very independent and wants to do everything by himself. I caught some cute pictures of little Mr. Independent in action this week 

He doesn't want to ride in his stroller anymore, I don't even try because all he does is try to climb out. He just follows behind me on our walks and stops to look at every rock. 

He also loves to help me bake. And when I say help, I mean he wants to play with the cookie batter for an hour and don't even try to stop him.

I laughed so hard when he tried to put the ranch dressing back in the fridge by himself, then couldn't figure out how to get out. 

Look at those tears!! He did this when I took a drink out of what apparently was his orange peel smoothie. 

Then, I tried to help him put his stickers on his coloring book where they are suppose to go, but he wanted to do it himself. So I left the room and when I came back they were all over the dog. And he cried when I took them off. Once again, he wanted to do that himself. 

And last but not least 
If he wants him on the dirty cement in the rocks, then leave him there. He wants to pick him up himself.

His daddy thought it would be funny to stick his bear out of the sunroof of the car. He was not amused.

Even though I love watching him learn how to do things himself, I am so sad he doesn't need my help as much. But, I'm loving how fun this age is! 

Happy hump day!!
