Yes, indeed. We've had quite a few clear signs around here lately that Ryan is growing up...and fast. But one of the clearest just happened this week.
Ryan will often follow me to the bathroom. He likes to shut the door with me on the inside and him on the outside. Until recently when he would do this he would laugh at first but then start to cry until I opened it again. Well, this has changed. Now, he shuts the door with gusto which is quickly followed by the pitter patter of his little feet running away. He is no longer thinking, "Where did Mommy go? I want Mommy!" No, now he is thinking, "Yes! Now I can get into all the things Mommy won't let me get into! YAY!"
