About Ryan

I've been writing a lot about Kurtis lately, so, as promised, here's something about Ryan. It's not a story but some information about Ryan. Ryan hasn't been "tagged" (something done in the blogging world) but I saw it on another blog and thought I'd use it.

3 things that scare me: Andrea Bocelli and Elmo singing one particular song on Sesame Street; sometimes loud sounds but not much else

3 people that make me laugh: my brother, my mom and my dad

3 things I love: Only 3??? But there's so much! music, swimming, dipping sauces, Sesame Street, horsing around with Kurtis

3 things I dislike: getting my nails cut, being asked to do anything I don't want to do, doing some of the homework Mommy makes me do

3 things I don't understand: why my parents don't think it's funny when I run away in stores; why I can't put ketchup on everything; why my parents won't let me get up and roam around when I'm awake...they keep insisting 5:30 am isn't wake up time yet and I have to sleep some more in their bed

3 things on the floor: 3 Halloween costumes I'm considering; about 10 books; the blankets off my bed (it's easier to jump on the bed when the blankets are off)

3 things I'm doing right now: eating breakfast (honey on bread with a glass of milk), watching Garfield the movie (yes, my Mommy is letting me eat breakfast while watching a movie at 7:30 in the morning!!) and teasing my brother (soooo much fun... he's so easy to bug!)

3 things I can't do: roller blade or ice skate - I really really want to because Kurtis does, but I haven't learned yet; play outside by myself; use a knife

3 things that best describe my personality: very friendly, very happy and a joker

3 things you should listen to: a dog barking (it means there's a dog somewhere close and you NEED to go pet it); me (I don't talk a lot but I sure have a lot to tell you); music

3 of my favourite foods: bologna; apples with creamy cucumber dressing as a dip; ketchup rice chips

3 things I'd like to learn: anything Kurtis is doing; ride a bike; use a knife

3 of my favourite drinks: juice, pop and chocolate milk

3 shows I watch on occasion: Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer and Spongebob Squarepants

3 Things we love about Ryan: His great big hugs and the way he says "I love you", the way he plays with my hair and his general all around cutie-patootie-ness.
Love that boy!!
Auntie Lisa and the rest...

Annette, I had computer problems and lost your e-mail [actually, I lost everyone's e-mail addy] but I wanted to tell you that I got your note about your Mother and my heart is so heavy right now. You know the events of the last three weeks for me......and it is the hardest thing I have ever had to journey through. I pray your Mother is comfortable and please know you are in my thoughts and prayers and if you ever need to talk, I'll e-mail you my phone number.

Peace and love, TM
