Day 23: Helpers & Projects

Ryder loves helping me. Sweeping is one of his favorite jobs. He also loves helping me rearrange my spices, even stacking them in nice towers at times. He will get out bowls and stir with me and loves watching the food cook in the oven.

"On" he will say while pointing at the oven standing on his tiptoes trying to see the food cooking inside. So today when he pushed over a chair so he could see what I was cooking on the stove, well he was in heaven. "Ohh" he would say while pointing. "Stir" he replied while I stirred the food.

"No touch, hot" I would remind him. He did good keeping his hands back, he just wanted to be able to see what was going on.

He wants to be big and do everything his siblings do- so when we began making Lucas' 100 day shirt painting our hands to make hand-prints- well Ryder wanted to join in. Pointing at the shirt, but then when it came time to paint his hand, he pulled his hand back towards his body and said "nuh-uh, nuh-uh". We tried to show him how fun it was, but he would look, but always kept his hand safely tucked in.I ended up just painting some handpints for him.
