Missing in Action

I'm still here! Since Jake asked tonight why I haven't blogged lately, I decided I better at least pop in and say hello!

We are just doing our normal, everyday routine around here. Jake is back to playing softball two nights a week, I'm attending Weight Watchers once a week and trying to get back to the gym a few nights a week too. It's been busy, but we wouldn't have it any other way!

Ryan is doing well - he's cracking us up everyday. I love to hear his little voice talking so much! Lately, every time I give him something he responds with, "Thank you Mommy" and when I ask him to do something he says, "Ok Mommy" and it's just the best feeling! We are still experiencing amazing bedtime routines - no fuss and usually no tears! Ryan is still sleeping through the night in his big boy transition bed (thank you God - I love my sleep!). One thing we have been having a little fight with is eating. Ryan has not wanted to eat dinner much lately...I try everything I can think of! Tonight I stood in the kitchen listing off all the things I could make for him for dinner "Do you want Chicken? Macaroni & Cheese? Oranges? Pears? Hot Cereal? Cold Cereal?" and every thing I listed, Ryan just shook his head and said, "No." I am out of ideas for this child! He has not really been picky until now. Do any of you have any food ideas I could try? When I do cook (not just heat up frozen food!!) I let Ryan sit on the kitchen counter and help me "cook" so that he is part of the process...but he would prefer playing in the back yard lately.

Anyway, as you can see, not much new going on. We're just hanging in there living life!

Patty, don't worry too much about it. i know it's easier said than done. It's probably just a phase. My cousin's little girl went through a similar phase when she was about 2 1/2. She got to the point where she would only eat if she was sitting alone. Now she eats very well. Hang in there! Is he eating other meals?
