We had a great day today! This morning we went to the gym to workout then headed over to my friends house for a MOPS steering team get together. I was a little worried since Ryan would miss his morning nap but he did awesome! We ate some yummy lunch and enjoyed hanging out with everyone!
Ryan loved the huge bookshelf full of book and decided to try and pull every book one at a time off the shelf. He loves to do this with everything right now. He will pull his toy magnets off the fridge and throw them one at a time. He is such a mess.
We came home around 1:30 and Ryan went right down for his nap and slept til 4. Woohoo! Part of me can't wait for him to drop his morning nap but then part of me doesn't want him to drop it. He still needs both naps and can only get away with one nap occasionally.

He has dropped the bottle completely and doing better with his sippy cup every day. I've found the nuby sippy cup is his favorite and he will actually hold it and drink from it. I've become so frustrated with Ryan's eating. He won't eat veggies and the only fruit he will eat is peaches. I put fruit and veggies on his plate every time and he just eats around it. He eats most meats. I'm so frustrated and just don't know how to get him to eat. I welcome any encouragement or advice.

Oh Summer! I can't believe how big Ryan is getting! What a cute guy! One of our friends advised us to only give Bea one food at a time. So their son gets veggies, then when he finishes that, he gets meat, etc. It's worked for them. We haven't gotten that far yet, so let me know if it works for you. :)

Hi Summer,

Seems like Ryan is asserting himself! You can't make him eat anything (the first of many things!), but your friend's advice (above) is good. Michael was a complete "fruititarian" for about 6 months starting about 1 year old......
