Gideon Byers is a ham.
Born to Susan Payne, business reporter for The Daily Nonpareil, and Cody Byers, a freelance artist, Gideon has been ready for the world since his first breath on Dec. 26, 2018.
After five months, Gideon has learned to move and groove during tummy time and is happier when he has freedom to move.
With very little experience in the solid food industry, Gideon hasn’t mastered swallowing his apple sauce quite yet, but he has learned to hold his own smaller-sized bottles.
In recent weeks, Gideon has started to press buttons and hold toys. While not in his mother’s arms, Gideon is learning the different songs his toys play while he exercises his stomach, arm and leg muscles.
Gideon has an overall quiet demeanor, although he is becoming louder as he learns more sounds his vocal cords can make.
He loves taking baths and cannot wait to swim this summer with his parents and two cousins who were born in the same year.
