I realize I am far behind in updating, so I'll do my best to catch up.  At the beginning of December, Ryland turned 23 months old.

At 23 months, Ryland is starting to speak in sentences, but still uses 2-3 word phrases most of the time.  We think his first sentence was "I see bubbles." (He was watching the washing machine start to fill with water and soap).  He can almost always identify the first letter of a spoken word or picture, and loves to play with anything that has ABC's on it.   We love to listen to his sweet little voice singing a familiar song or "reading" a book:

In the following pictures from November, Ryland matches letter tiles to words in a book, helps Mommy stir brownies (and licks the spoon), plays the piano with Daddy, lines up rubber duckies on the tub, swings with cousins at Grandma & Grandpa's house on Thanksgiving, and more.
