Some rAnDoMnEsS for the week...

Just some random photos to share and one frustrating story.... Not much else going on at the moment....

Randomness #1: Ryder LOVES the three windows in our living room. He is just tall enough now to see out of them and can scale them all pretty well. Our cats also really love these windows so Ryder loves to go up and say hi to them all the time(hit them as hard as he can and pull their tails). I didn't realize when we rented the place that it has a pretty nice view (views weren't exactly on our check-list of must-haves at that point). Anyhow Ryder loves to hang at the window and bang his toys against it to get dog-walkers or people headed to the pool to pay attention to him. It's pretty comical. The other day we caught him doing this.... I guess he needed a better view!

Randomness #2: Baby PJ's! Not just baby pj's that fit the little man... I'm talking baby pj's that are actually sold in the newborn size that are also in the little man's size! LOVE THEM! These days Ryder is in a weird clothing size. A lot of the baby clothes only go through 12 months which he doesn't fit in anymore most of the time and the toddler sizes start at 2T which are still a little too big for him. The 18 month section seems to be pretty much non-existent in most stores so when I find something babyish that will still fit him it is a must to buy it up! Yesterday at Kohl's I found some baby Carter's pj's that I was admiring.... I always stroll through the little baby section still even though Ryder doesn't fit in it wishing he still would. Lucky for me the little pj's I was admiring also came in 12 months. Well Carter's onesies run extremely huge for some reason and the 9 month ones still fit him.... so I nabbed up the $17.00 12 month pj's knowing it was way too much for a pair of pj's, but smiling at the fact that my little man would be wearing "baby pj's" tonight. Well we got to the counter and they rang up at $9.99.... we will be going back to get the other two color patterns at some point this weekend. Ugh I love me some baby pj's!!! :)

Excuse the goofy face... he was all over the place last night and pictures were hard to get!

Randomness #3: Rude People!!! UGH!! Before you go on to read this know that I think how a baby is raised is his parents choice. Whatever your decisions may be I respect, but do NOT push your parenting views on me! ESPECIALLY if you are a stranger!!! So the other day Derrik, Ryder, and I are at Walmart doing some grocery shopping. Of course Ryder is smiling and putting on a show for every person that walks by which always leads to small talk with fellow shoppers. The other day we got an older gentleman who started this small talk. He asked how old Ryder was explaining that he had a baby grandson living out of the area and was trying to get an idea of what his grandson would look like at however many month it was that he was. He tells me how much hair he has (as if I didn't know), how he seems so alert, and how personable he seems. Then he did it.... he crossed the line!... In the middle of our friendly-small talk conversation he asks me if I've had Ryder vaccinated. We'll yes I have. He then shakes his head at me as if I was feeding my baby soda and junk food all the time and being an awful mother. I could feel like blood pressure rising and my cheeks getting red. He then proceeded to ask me how many times I've had him vaccinated, and I told him as many times as he was suppose to have been vaccinated (not that this was any of his business!). AGAIN I get the "your an awful mother" head shake. He then asks if I at least got the mercury-free vaccinations. No I did not... because I don't even know what that means exactly. Like I said... I respect every mothers choice to do as they believe healthy and safe for their child, but my choice is pro-vaccination. I am not a crazy health-studies buff and probably won't ever be so my feelings are that the government and schools have laws for a reason... they say to vaccinate... so I do. Anyhow... This rude gentleman then shakes his head at me one more time and says "Well... At least he looks healthy. You should look into that!" UGHHH The nerve of that guy! I was so shaken up the rest of our trip. People can be SOOO rude sometimes!!!

Randomness #4: Clementines... How I love them :)I am eating one right now as I blog. This seasonsonal fuit is back in the stores and we are eating them like candy in the Lutz household... yum, yum, yum!

That is so annoying! Don't take any of his comments/head nods to heart! What a terd! You are a wonderful mother and don't ever doubt that! Love the pictures and I am going through the EXACT same thing with Connor's jammies too. They are either too tight or way too long and finding the right size is so difficult sometimes. You are probably on your way to my house now...can't wait!

The pictures of Ryder are soo freaking cute! I personally know nothing about vaccinations, but I do know that Ryder is a perfectly healthy, happy, wonderful baby boy and that's what matters. And I have no clue what the heck a clementine is, it sounds like a horse to me :) Miss you guys!
