Update on us

Well Ryan will be 10 months on Saturday. Where does the time go? He is going to start walking anytime now. He took several steps on Friday night but has been kind of lazy since then. He is doing lots of standing without holding onto anything but not walking. I thought he would walk earlier than Maura did but I don't think it's going to happen that way.

Maura is still fighting the potty training thing and it is maddening. I'll think we are close and then she just refuses. I have tried bribery, threats, sticker charts etc. I'm not sure what else to do. She has the most active imagination and says absolutely hysterical things. A couple of weeks ago she was trying to get up on the dishwasher. I told her to get down and she says "Mommy I have to get up here" I asked her why and she responds with "because I am a mermaid" I had to keep going with it and I asked her what being a mermaid had to do with getting up on the dishwasher? Her answer was "mermaids sit on rocks mommy and the dishwasher is my rock" complete with a cute little pose. I had to laugh at that. She is pretty creative.

Well I will try to do a better job keeping you all updated.
