September 2012

Ryan is now 10 Months old - the time has really gone by so fast - he continues to enjoy being on the run.  The Autumn season is now upon us with much cooler temperatures and less daylight.   Ryan continues his development in moving about - with a lot of cruising and walking with his walker - we are waiting for him to venture off unassisted.   Ryan has also now started talking weekly music classes with Shima a chance for some organized activity with other babies in the area.  Hope you enjoy the shots below.   

Ryan visiting Aunty Dewi before heading to the back to Seoul.

Ryan at the airport with Grandma and Grandpa - it was great to spend two weeks back in KL and can't wait for them to visit Seoul in October and November.

The look of a Weary Traveler - a nice big Yawn!

Ryan in the Playground Fort.

Ryan Test Driving a new Car - Heah Mom and Dad - you know my Birthday is coming up in November right?  

The weather is a changing - Ryan getting bundled up for his daily walks. 

 Ryan has no fear - as I guess most babies don't - he loves going down the slide.  Of course Mommy is there to supervise the activity!

You put your left foot out and you shake all about - you do the hokie pokie!

What did Mommy buy - some new Uggs - getting ready for the winter ahead!

Ryan in his tricked out Full on Cold Rainy Weather Gear on the Buggy - (there are breathing holes on the side)

Ryan doing his best Spiderman impersonation. 

 Ryan enjoying his lunch with a Food Pouch - he fell in love with these food pouches when visiting his cousin Hank in DC.  

We joined the Aquarium in Co-Ex and now can visit as much as we want for the next 12 months.  Ryan did enjoy a lot of the sights and expect we will spend a lot of time there this winter - I know Daddy can't wait to go back as there is a nice Mexican Restaurant nearby.

Ryan wanted to go back to see the Fish again already.

Ryan attending is Mommy and Baby Music Class.  

Ryan cruising around the playground. 

Ryan with his new favorite toy - his walker.  The video above shows how much more mobile he is now.

Ryan vs Carrot - who will win?

A return on our investment already - Ryan playing the Xylophone - his homework from the music class.  The Korean Education system is no joke - gotta start early!

Heah - How you doing?  Check-out my threads as I cruise the playground!

Ryan's 2012 Fall Collection. 

I got the Baby Buggy Blues!  

 Back at class - playing with Balloons -not sure the connection to music class but he enjoyed them anyway. 

For Ryan - Chairs are for climbing not sitting - notice the thick rug below him now - a little added protection against falls.   He is a climbing machine - the coffee table is now his personal stage.

Ryan rocking the Fedora - part of his Music Culture Image!

Ryan learning to keep the walker on the path - he loves to transport various items in the front compartment - some favorites include a sock, some Cheerios, and a few blocks. 

Ryan and his morning Yoga Stretching - likes to look at us from between his legs. 

Ryan double fisted on the spoons - likes to eat Mommy's home cooking!

Ryan now wearing his Rugby Jersey - looking back at the March Blog update - this shirt was like a blanket for him.   He can't wait to play a few matches with the Dingoes and his Uncle Kregg. 

Ryan wearing some of his Fall collection - the weather is brisk but he still loves his walks.

A nice family outing in downtown Seoul along the river walk.   Ryan enjoying a warm bottle and was soon sleeping on the walk home. 

Ryan Scooby or maybe Scrappy Doo!

August 2012

The US Holiday continues on to DC - a great chance to catch up with the extended Schuster Family. It was great for Ryan to meet his Cousin Hank - who was a great little Host who shared his toys.   A few of our favorite shots below.

Paging Dr. Ryan - those are supposed to go in our ears not your mouth!

 Ryan eating Hank's block - with cousin Kiedis in the background.  Hank giving Ryan the grand tour of his old baby bouncy chair.  

Ryan off to visit the Zoo - lots of sunscreen and a floppy hat to beat the heat!

 Uncle Kregg and Aunty Kristin rocking there matching Gap T-Shirts - a very Korean thing to do is for couples to wear matching T-Shirts!

The Shots above are from a day out to see the Monuments - a lot of walking and lots of water to keep hydrated.   It was nice to spend time exploring the Capitol City.

 A nice dinner out - Ryan enjoyed the attention of sitting at the head of the Table. 

Our last night in DC - a BBQ party with the Family.  

Time to hit the road and Head back to Olean - our journey is fast approaching an end.  It proved to be a whirlwind tour totaling over 3000 miles roundtrip.   Ryan was a trooper to hang in there - Shima was also able to log a few hundred miles as the Driver.

A nice lunch with Great Aunts' Lori and Betsy.   

 Ryan helping get us packed for the return trip to Seoul.   He did extremely well again on the long flights - well behaved without any crying fits.   

Ryan home in Seoul for a quick bath and rest - because he had to help Mommy pack again for their trip back to KL to celebrate the Hari Raya Holiday. 

Yes, we do agree Mommy is the Boss!

Mommy and Ryan checking in for the flight back to KL - and Ryan is still living with his Parents.   

 Ryan enjoying being back in the city of his birth - KL.  He would be logging some more road miles as there were plenty of Mommy's Relatives to visit.

Ryan wearing his very first Baju Melayu for the Raya visits.  In the one photo - you can now clearly see all of Ryan's new teeth - he went from having his bottom two teeth to now having 4 teeth on top and 4 on the bottom.   

 Ryan visiting Shima's Grandfather's House - it was a great photo to show the 4 generations.  Shima's Grandfather, Shima's Mother, Shima and Ryan.

Ryan with his Great Grandmother from Shima's Father's side.   

Ryan catching some Zzzzzzzzz's after a long few days of road trips.
