I’m not sure when it happened, but sometime in the last few weeks, Ryan transformed from a baby into a little boy.
Maybe it has had something to do with the confidence that comes from walking, or the independence that comes from the ability to get yourself where you want to go. His little body is changing and his personality is becoming ever more bold. He’s also become so determined and perseverant (just like his dad) and ever so affectionate.
I know that time is fleeting, but I’m ok with this transformation. He dances when music is playing, he waves and gives hugs to friends and strangers alike, and he runs across a room to me with arms wide open. These days of change are perfect, and I love that Ryan is growing into a little boy—and becoming his own little human.
