Jumping St. Patrick's Day

I know I haven't posted in a while. I find that when I finally get Ryan down for the night the minor everyday details tend to make me busy. I would so love to just relax, but I just haven't found the time lately. Plus I've been very crabby every night and I know no one wants to listen to me whine and complain just because I'm moody.

Our St. Patrick's day was pretty good. Ryan wore green. Pat and I had corned beef, which was very tasty.

Lately Ryan loves to stand, with our support of course. He's always had strong legs, but now he wants to stand most of the day. So when Pat got home from work, I told him we were going to Toys R Us. We bought Ryan the Jumperoo. At first he didn't know what to think of it. After a few minutes he really started to like the lights that came on when he bounced. Now I use the word bounce loosely because he's still too small, but it does provide him the standing feeling he wants. I love to see him exploring new things. Getting him a new toy made yesterday a very fun day. I can't wait for him to play in it today. I'm so lucky to be able to spend everyday watching Ryan grow and teaching him new things. I couldn't ask for anything better.

We love, LOVE our Jumperoo! I really think that is what taught Porter how to walk so early on! As Ryan gets a little older, they have the walkers that are great as long as you don't place them by the stairs (obviously). I was so skeptical about getting it, but Porter cruised around the house in it and in just two months he was walking! I am so sad that we had to pack those both away :(

And, I love to hear complaining!
