Anderson Ryan Alexander {10 months}

My blogging has really been few and far between. Well, to tell you the truth, there is a lot going on behind the scenes. A lot of things have been going on that are out of my control. Health issues have interrupted my daily life and I am determined to figure out what is going on so I can get on the right path to getting my life back. For the time being, I've been so exhausted for the past few months that I don't feel able to keep up with even the little things. I missed Anderson's 9th month update for this reason and haven't done anything worth talking about this summer. It's kind of sad that my first summer in Maine was a total waste. Well, not entirely. We did go to the farmer's market a handful of times with my sister-in-law, and we went to an aquarium in Boothbay (also with my sister-in-law), and we attended an art festival a month ago…so I guess it wasn't at TOTAL waste.

Now for an update on Anderson:

This little man of mine is out of control. Between his 9th and 10th month he decided it was time to walk. Yes….I said walk. I can't believe that he is walking on his own. He is such an adventurous soul. He is very in tune with his surroundings…you can almost watch him look around and take it all in. He wants to touch, taste, and throw anything in his reach. He loves to climb the stairs and chase the dogs around. He also love to play with Amar'e and pull her hair whenever he gets the chance. It is fascinating to watch them interact. I sometimes envision how they will interact with each other when they are older. This thought puts a huge smile on my face.

Yes, I know this one is out of focus. I just love it too much not to share
Had to share this great shot of Ama'e



I must hear the word why a million times a day with a curious three year old tagging along with me everywhere I go. Why this, why that. It doesn't bother me at all, even under the most stressful situations I try and answer her questions. I find it incredibly important to not only answer her why questions, but I answer all her questions with full responses. And If she asks me a question I don't know the answer to, I admit to her that I don't know. I rarely respond with a "just because that is the way it is" because there is always an answer to"why" if you think about it. But she is pretty good about why-ing me into submission.

  I know she doesn't fully understand most of the answers I give her but she will in time. If anything I'm hoping this makes her feel as though I value her curiosity, because I do. I know she won't be this age forever so I try and soak up every ounce of it that I can. I love engaging with her and her question she has about the world around her. 

Amar'e, hit me with your best why!
