Ty's first day of school was awesome. Candace and I both went and were very impressed. He interacted awesome with all the other kids, offered to share and help other people, and was very very polite to the teachers and paid 100% attention to everything they said. He created a nice "mat" to eat his snack on every day, read books, played on the playground and had a great time. Afterward we went to Chuck E. Cheese and followed that up with a trip to the toy store. He's really looking forward to the rest of the year and can't wait to go back.
Here's his first day outfit (he decided on the rockstar fingers on his own.)

Well tomorrow is Ty's first day of preschool. We are so excited and sad at the same time. He's getting so big and is so so smart. Growing too fast almost. He's been out of diapers for about 2 months now and sleeps through the night without any accidents (knock on wood). He is amazing with music. He remembers entire songs, it just amazes us. We were on the way home from my dad's house on his birthday and Ty just started singing Iron Maiden's Run To The Hills out of the blue. He sang every single word (of course he made a few up because he didn't know exactly what they are singing) and even knows all of the pauses and when to stop and start singing again. It just amazes me. Being a guitarist in a band for 8-9 years, it comes natural to know when to pause and when to come back in and I followed along with him in my head and he had the transitions and pauses completely perfect. He does the same thing when he gets on stage and plays with his Uncle Jordo's band. At the end of the song he's playing, he'll strum the last chord on his little play guitar at exactly the same time Jordan does ending the song. He definitely has it in his blood. He LOVES (so do daddy and mommy) The Imagination Movers new show. They are now on Disney and have finally gotten the recognition they deserve. Daddy used to email with them back and forth back in the day when they had the development deal, to try and find out when they were either coming around or getting on TV. So it's good to finally see the show on TV and I must say, it's pretty awesome. So is the new CD. Highly recommended.
We go out in the back field on weekends and Ty rides his 2 wheeler around. He's really good with it and balancing. It won't be long before he has something with a gas motor underneath it. :)

Well tomorrow is Candace's birthday. We just got back from the beach and we spent yesterday at the fair. Tomorrow is her actual birthday. Daddy is staying home from work to make her breakfast in bed and to take her out to lunch and/or dinner. We had a great time at the beach. Ty LOVED all the fast rides, including the Hurricane and the roller coasters. He was pretty bored with the little kid rides that go in circles. When he was on the rollercoaster with mommy he made a noise that was all rough and tough cause he wanted to go faster. It was SO cute. Mommy bought him this cute little rockstar necklace and he loves it and wears it all the time. We went to the waterpark while we were at the beach and Ty went down the big slide with mommy, and loved the little slide and the water. He also enjoyed getting near the waves and running away from them. Then he would bend over backwards telling the waves to kiss his butt. It was funny, especially cause after the water came up, he would splash in it and say kiss it, to the water. Funny.
Happy Birthday mommy, it's been a great year!!! Here's to MANY MANY more!
Love Ty and Daddy!
