Now let me do my one two step...

Hello, Hello!

ITs Thursday ALREADY! Whew! Time is really flying by! Seems like just yesterday we were getting ready for Easter!
Tyler has a NEW wake up time...It used to be 7-7:30, now it is 6 AM! YUP, our little prince rules the household. heehee He is down for a nap now because we go to our library music class at 10:30. He loves it and gets to see his really good friend, Tess.

(BTW...This picture was taken at Grammies and Poppy's house. Their backyard is beautiful. )

Ty is into mimmicking...some things he understands. He LOVES the Backyardigans. He sings along. Its like this soft 'Ahhhhhhh'...he holds the note. They have this song where they sing "treasure, treasure" and he goes "eh-duh, eh-duh" So of course Tim and I are walking around singing "treasure, treasure". I have been singing to him, and sometimes I go, LaLaLa...he will repeat, YaYaYa...So cute.

A funny one...everytime Tyler has a stinky diaper...we ask him if he is stinky, stinky butt, stinky pants (hmmmm, wonder where name calling originates...) ...The other day he was concentrating really hard, doing his business...I asked him if he was going poopy. He looked at me and said 'teetee' (for stinky). So funny.

Walk this way...and talk this way...

Yes SirEEEE! Tyler took his first three steps last week!!! I was sitting on the floor, he was standing at his leapfrog, and with his arms WIDE open, he walked to me. He has done that a couple times since, but he realizes, crawling his faster and safer for him. He has been standing alone too and will walk holding one of our hands. He likes to move the kitchen chairs and his highchair all around.

He LOVES 'D' words. Dada has become Dahdee (spoken gently) It is the sweetest and Tim melts everytime. He will say 'Hi Dahdee'...ahhh so precious. He loves saying 'deedee' for the doggies, and 'dudee' for Ducky. The cutest was the other day he was in the tub, and the hanging duck you see in the picture quacks. He looked at it and said 'wah,wah, wah, wah, wah, wah' trying ot say quack, quack, totally had the rhythm down...I got it on video. So adorable. He really likes to mimmick sounds. I love having these long babbling conversations. He is currently in his crib for his nap and he is singing away. Music to my ears...melting my heart.

We joined this website called 'Dropshots'. I have uploaded a bunch of videos. There is no downloading, the video will play automatically. IT loads itself. Here is a link to a video that I made for Tyler. It goes from 0-9 months of his life. Just click on the picture below.

Our little Rockstar!!!

Tyler LOVES drums...LOVES them. He loves to bang on everything, but now he found what a cool sound the drums make and he hammers away! It is so cute!

We had a WONDERFUL Easter holiday! Ty's 1st Easter! The Easter bunny spoiled him! On Friday, Ty's cousins Ellie and Adam came over with their Mommy Aunt Erin. Aunt Alexis came over too. We had a little Easter party. The Easter bunny stopped over at Aunt Erin's house and left him a basket with lots of toys and Elmo goodies. He had a great time playing with Adam and Ellie.
Easter Sunday was so nice. It was such a beautiful day! Tyler woke up and saw all the toys the Easter Bunny brought. We went to church, then came home for a nap. Everyone came over for dinner and the E.B. visited their homes too and left gifts for Tyler! A drum, shaker, and tamborine, pajamas, elmo clothes etc from Grammies and Poppy, A giggling bunny from Aunt Diane, A singing bunny from Auntie Alexis, a basket of goodies from Aunt Deb, An Elmo bunny from Aunt Megs and Uncle Jordo and Finger Puppets from Aunt Sandy and Uncle Will! WHEW! E.Bunny must have really thought Tyler was a good boy. Mommy and Daddy sure think so!

Hmmm, lets see, whats going on with TyTy!!!

Tyler has started standing on his own. It gets longer and longer everytime. It is amazing. He wants to walk...I guess that is coming soon!

He is doing this adorable kiss sound that his Auntie Alexis taught him. She gave him a MWAH kiss and then he goes Mwah! Then his Grandma taught him another trick. You whisper to him, "Tyler, let me tell you a secret" and he puts his ear close to your mouth to listen.

He loves to ride his little bike all over the living room. He bounces and dances on it. So cute!

He knows sign language for FAN. We have been teaching him sign language and this one definitely is FAN! heehee He puts his arm in the air and makes little circles.

Thats all for now...gotta run!

Love to all and we hope that you had a beautiful Easter!

The best feeling in the world...

Those of you with kids can relate...

The best feeling in the world is when I walk in the door from work and Tyler crawls over to me as fast as he can saying "daddy, dada dada daddy dada" over and over again. He'll crawl up to me and grab my pants and pull himself up to standing up and raise his arms for me to pick him up. Then he'll touch my face and say dada dada dada. Wow...

It's an incredible feeling. I just hug him and kiss him and kiss him and kiss him. Man, it's awesome. :)

I love our little family...

Puppy Love

Here is a picture of Tyler and our puppy Mickey. Tyler loves the dogs. He tries to say comes out more like a "Duh" sound. So cute. I may have been wrong with Ty saying Elmo..I heard it one time, maybe it was a fluke. When he sees Elmo he makes an 'Ahhh' sound real loud. He gets so excited. It is so neat to watch him learn and discover new things. We go back and forth with sounds to mimmick each other. He gets so excited. Anyway, just thought I would share this darlin picture.
