Thank you

Thank you to everyone for your love and support during this tough time. We lost our sweet dog Sebastian Easter morning. He had a tumor and was due for surgery Monday. He was so uncomfortable, especially all day Saturday, by Saturday evening, he was dying. My parents came over and Tim and I took Sebby to the pet ER, so that he could rest and run though the green grass in heaven. Our hearts are broken, but we know he is at peace and happy. Casey our other dog, misses him too. Sebastian was Tyler's little buddy. If Ty fell or was upset, Sebby would be right there. He was always a puppy, filled with energy and mischief even though he was 8 years old. He was an original, with one eye half blue half black, born with black eyeliner...haha He was super fast and could jump from the floor to the table. He could escape from everything...and squeeze through the smallest spaces. I think he just did it to drive Tim crazy, haha but I loved it. He was a special little dog. I am thankful for the time we were given. He really blessed our life.
Tyler took it very well. We explained that he was in heaven with all the angels. We asked if he understood...he said "Yes, Sebby is playing with all the snow angels..." So sweet. Later Easter evening, I was crying and Tyler asked what was wrong. I said that I just miss Sebastian. He put his precious arms around me and said, "It's ok Mommy, Sebby's with the angels.". He has mentioned him here and there, but I think that he has a direct link to heaven. I know Tim's Mom and sister, and my grandparents and cousins are all loving their new puppy in heaven.
We will miss our little guy. He will all be in our hearts forever.
We love you Sebastian.
Tyler, Daddy, Mommy and Casey

Happy St. Patrick's Day 2 hrs early

Hello Hello!
We had a wonderful weekend. Tim and I celebrated our anniversary (11 years) yesterday and we had a blast!
Tim had been away all last week and Tyler and I missed him so much. Having him back was so wonderful! So Friday, we went and looked at some cars and ordered pizza and relaxed. Saturday morning, we woke up to a wonderful Easter Egg hunt that our neighborhood put together. It was so nice and Ty got a lot of candy and eggs... We decided to head to the Zoo for the Easter Egg hunt there too! It was chilly at first, but it warmed up to a nice cool, comfy temp. We did the little egg hunt, visited the polar bears and had lunch. We saw an old friend from Mommy's Chili's days, Christy. She has 2 adorable little ones. It was great to see her again. We went over to the carousel and polar bear ride. We then ventured over to visited the new Giraffe feeding station, the elephants (2 new ones and one on the way)... One of the elephants was showing a bit too much if you know what I'm saying. If not, I will email you a picture... we did our rounds, got a good workout and headed home. We rested a little and packed Ty up for his big overnight with Poppy, Ma Cheri and Auntie. We pulled up and a cute little bike was sitting outside. Ty hopped on it right away, it still needs training wheels, so I held the bike and tried to keep up. haha We went inside and saw Poppy putting together the new bed that they got for him. It was a cute little cars bed. He just LOVED it! It was time for Tim and I to head our, and Ty started to get a little upset. Luckily, I brought a lot of fun distractions, so we said our goodbyes, and headed out. He went to church with them for Palm Sunday and informed us later "But I don't want to go to church." Oh no. We talked to him a little later, and he said, "But Mommy, I want you with me" It was so sweet, but I know it is good for him and good for Tim and I to have some alone time. Tim and I went to dinner and had a really nice time. We went to bed early and woke up early too. I guess the internal Mommy/Daddy clock was still on. It was so great to see our little man and we were very grateful for the time we spent and for Ty getting such special treatment. He had a great time!
My dad said he was a little angel. No trouble at all. It made me feel good, and I know that my dad meant it. I love to see how much Tyler is loved. Warms my heart.
So...Happy Anniversary Timmy! Heres to many more. I love you with all my heart!
Sorry, had to get a little mushy :)
Love to all!
Here is Tyler in his new Cars bed at my parents house :)

I have been keeping up with adding pictures to Ty's dropshots site...(the videos link)

Tyler and I had a busy day!
We had playgroup... some shopping, visited the pet store to look at the fish... went to the gym, Ty decided he does not like the gym and I was able to do 1/2 the warm up... but thats ok. I don't want my little boy upset. We had a picnic when we got home and read a lot of books. Tyler LOVES books now and I could not be any happier about that. We had a mini photo shoot... he was such a little ham. His head is healing so quickly! Mederma for kids! It has been a little over a week...7 stitches and now you can barely tell. Ty just started the inquisitive stage... "Why? Why? Why? " haha He knows his shapes really well... esp the difference between a rectangle and square. Ty can write the letter T. We have little T's all over the place. "Across and Down:" I can hear him practice. So cute. He has become quite independent! "Mommy, I can do it myself." Whether dressing himself, getting in the car seat, etc... After he jumped into the car seat he said "See Mommy, I told you I could do it myself!" Right you are my little man. Growing way too quickly for me. I love him so much.

A new cool scar...

Yes, you read correctly. Tyler had a little unfortunate meeting with the end of a table and well... 7 stitches later, we are healing.
Tim was on his way to Alexis' (my sister) play and I ordered a pizza for TyTy and I to have a picnic. He was so excited when the doorbell rang...I grabbed the money and he slipped off the couch into the table. I thought he just bumped it, and answered the door with a screaming toddler in my arms. I said the the "pizza guy" ... we just had a little accident...and he was looking at me rather strangely... thinking maybe he didn't speak English well or something...haha I shut the door, only to see Ty's right side of his face covered in blood. We got the cool compress, held tight and called Tim right away and told him to come home. He flew home and we went to St. Joe's. We were in and out in a little over an hour. He got one stitch inside and 6 on the outside. Our brave little gent will get his stitches out on Thursday. Ty and I are fighting a cold and trying to mend as best as we can.
Lots of cuddles.

Today we made some Butternut Squash Soup together. I thought for sure, Tyler helping me cook would ensure him trying it. Another sneaky way to get veggies into my growing boy. Did he try it? Nope. I am gonna try tomorrow.

We also had our last Terrific Tots last week. Ty starts preschool in the fall. I cannot believe how fast he is growing up!

Ty and Sebastian (one of our dogs) adore each other. When Ty gets hurt or is upset, Sebby is right there...although there are times where he has had enough our this cute toddler love. This looks like one of those times...haha Sebby has a wonky eye, but this picture, it is more prominent. haha Puppy cuddles!
