He had a very rough start, coming 8 weeks early. So tiny, so small, less than 5 pounds. Then he just wasn't growing very well and had horrific reflux. Thankfully with time and medicine everything got better.(You can watch his birth story and first year with this video I made a few years ago)
Now he is 4.
He loves to play with cars and any kind of ball.
He loves to have his back rubbed, but you have to rub it just right or he will tell you "no like this"
He still can't quite say the letter s at the beginning of words, so the 'know' (snow) falls from the sky, and he loves 'movies' (smoothies).
He knows how to work the iPads and computer, he will go and start up Starfall or Disney Junior on the computer all by himself.
My Ryder, I cannot imagine my life without him and today he is one year older.
Happy Birthday Sweet Boy.
