We have his 2 year check up later this week, I'll post an update to this blog at the end of the week.
*** Update 4/29 - Ry's checkup went really well. The Dr said he looked great and is in the 50th percentile for height and just slightly below 50th percentile for weight. He's 34 1/2 inches tall, weighs 26.8 lbs with a BMI of 15.4. I had to ask for his head circumference (50.3 cm, 75th percentile?) because Pediatricians usually measure head circumference only in children under the age of two — the head doesn't grow much after the fontanels soft spots close at around 18 months. We did ask about his right foot which turns in. The Dr said that it's actually very common and he'll grow out of it overtime. Overall he's a happy, healthy, super smart, average sized kid. :) ***

Ry loves to rough house with daddy. Sometimes Daddy catches him by surprise and they wrestle on the bed. Other times Ry tries to tease daddy into playing with him. They've even started this routine where Ry runs up to daddy, throws him some rapid punches in his chest, then daddy will play punch back, and Ry throws himself backwards as if he's been knocked out. This will go on for a good 15 mins before he tires of that game.
Ry loves our phones and cameras. Every time we take them out to snap a photo or video, he immediately wants to see it. He laughs and smiles while watching himself. When Aunt Janie and Unkie Bob came for a visit this past month, they showed Ry their tablet and "Mighty Machines". Ry was instantly hooked. This prompted us to buy our own tablet for home use and trips. He will sit still for a good 30min to an hour watching these shows. In fact now every morning he insists on watching Mighty Machines on the tablet...if not, crying ensues.

Our little guy is addicted to chocolate. :( It started off with an M&M here or there as a treat, then moved into full on 'I want chocolate' at all hours! Seriously even when he just wakes up he'll take me to the pantry and say "chocolate?" Oh kid you're killing me. So now we're trying to wean him off it, so not fun, bad bad parents. We also recently discovered that he can now finish an entire kid's cheeseburger! This boy loves Sonic.
