My Silly Boy

Here is another video of Sammy and Tyler playing. Or Tyler playing with Sammy and Sammy getting really annoyed. Whatever Sammy is doing Tyler finds it hysterically funny. This is really cute, so turn your volume up. His laugh is my favorite thing in the world.

I Think He's Tired!

Lately Tyler has not been wanting to take his afternoon nap at daycare, so he comes home really tired. Most of the time he doesn't get fussy, he just starts laying his head down everywhere. I don't know why he likes Sammy's bed so much but he always trying to play on it. And now he is trying to sleep on it.

I'm Stuck

Tyler got himself in quite the little pickle.

Help Momma I'm stuck and I can't get out of here.

Phew... I finally figured out how to get out of here.

Sunday Afternoon

I took Tyler outside today to try to get some pictures of him. Unfortunately he didn't really like the grass so I was only able to get a couple of them. Here are some of the cute ones.

Just like Daddy....

Today we went to eat some barbecue for lunch. Tyler was in heaven. I think he loves bbq just as much as his Daddy!!! I ordered pulled pork, green beans and some mac n cheese that I shared with Tyler. Tyler loved it all. He mostly ate the pulled pork and the green beans but I did let him have some of the mac n cheese. Here are some pictures of Tyler enjoying his lunch.

Gavin's 1st Birthday

Tyler had a busy day on Saturday. We went up to Allen for Gavin's 1st Birthday and on the way up there we had to go eat some YUMMY cuban food and then we went to the outlet mall. I was really good at the outlet mall, I only bought one thing for Tyler and it only cost $4. I think Tyler had a fun time at Gavin's birthday. He made it until around 7pm and then we had to go. He hadn't had a nap since 9:30am. By 7pm he was kept laying his head on the floor wanting to go to sleep. Even though he was so tired, he never got fussy. I was so proud of my little guy. He is just my favorite thing in the whole world.

Here are some cute pictures of Tyler with his friends.

This is the birthday boy, Gavin. Erin and Steven's little guy.

Here are some pictures of Tyler and Gavin playing.

Here is Miss Aubrey, Rodney and Dana's daughter.

Here is a picture of Tyler climbing on top of Gavin's present.

This is the dynamics of two little boys that want to play with the same toy.

Of course I had to end this post with a cute picture of Tyler.

9 Month Check Up

Tyler had his 9 month check up today. He is 19 lbs 3 oz (25-50th%) and 29 in (90th%). His weight is a little low but he has been following the same trend since birth, so there are no worries. Overall he is doing great. I was a little worried because he isn't saying any consonant sounds (baba, dada, mama, etc) but my pediatrician told me not to worry about it until he is 12 months. If at 12 months he still isn't saying any then he will need to go to a speech therapist. Tyler is so advanced in so many ways that I just have really high expecations for him. I guess he doesn't need to excel in every area of development:) I also got some samples of Nucort to help clear up some of the red spots on his legs, hopefully this will do the trick.

The pediatrician also wants me to stop Tyler's 5 am feeding. He is pretty attached to the feeding and so am I. This feeding gives me a chance to see my Little Guy before I head off to work for the day. We are going to start this tomorrow and see how it goes.


I've been learning how to use Photoshop to add some really cool effects to some of Tyler's pictures. I never realized that you use it to do so many things to pictures. Here are a couple that I worked on today.

I also learned how to make a picture black and white and then add color back into it. Here is one the I did the other night.

Now I just have to convince my wonderful husband to get me a SLR camera, so I can learn how to take better pictures.

Happy 9 Month Birthday Tyler

My baby boy is 9 months old today. I always thought everyone was crazy when they would say kids go from being born to driving in like a day. Now I understand why. I can't believe how fast time is flying. Tyler will be a 1 year old in 3 months:( My baby is growing into such a beautiful little boy. Every day he is starting to look more and more like his Daddy.

Some of things that Tyler has accomplished this month are:

1. Climbing- he learned this at daycare, they have big blocks that he can climb all over. Now he tries to climb everything at home, from the stairs to the couch to mommy and daddy.

2. He is doing excellent on him move to people food. He loves everything that I give him. Hopefully he doesn't end up being a picky eater like his mommy and daddy.

3. He has gotten really good at the pincer grasp. In the last couple of weeks, he has really gotten good at feeding himself. He amazes me every time I watch him.

4. He takes baths like a big boy now. He loves to play in the bath tub. His favorite toys are a plastic cup and the top to my shaving cream. Go figure all kinds of cute bath toys and those are what he chooses to play with.

5. He has started to dance. This one is really cute. His Great Grandma bought him a toy that he can stand up and play with. It plays lots of music and Tyler stands there bounces his little butt around.
6. He is cruising all over the place. No sign of wanting to let go and walk yet but he knows how to get everywhere by holding onto something.
7. He is trying to stand on his own. He can do it for a couple of seconds but then he falls.

Tyler & Sammy Playing

Tyler has figured out a new way to torture Sammy. He loves to take his toys away from him. Of course this game is way more fun for Tyler than it is for Sammy. But part of me thinks that Sammy likes the attention.

So this is what....

A 103.2 fever looks like.

Tyler spiked a fever on Sunday afternoon. He had a 103.2 fever all the way through Monday. I ended up working from home on Monday and Troy stayed home with him on Tuesday. His fever turned into a really runny nose and a cough. We thought he was getting better until Friday.

Tyler was nice enough to give me his cold, so I stayed home on Friday to try and get myself better. Tyler spiked another fever at daycare so I had to go pick him up at 9:30am. So much for my day of relaxing. I took him to the doctor that afternoon since he wasn't getting better. He ended up have a cold and an ear infection. His first ear infection. He was put on antiboitics and is all better now:)

We went to Jason's Deli for dinner on Thursday and they gave me a pickle. I decided to let Tyler have a taste. Sorry the video is not in the right direction. That is how it took on Troy's cell phone. I tried to flip it but I couldn't figure out how. Either way its still cute.

Little Monkey

Over the weekend Tyler has gotten really good at climbing. He learned how to climb the stairs a couple days ago and now he does it all the time. Yesterday I was able to get some pictures of him climbing the stairs.

After Tyler mastered the stairs he decided he wanted to climb onto the coffee table. I was laying on the floor playing with him and he crawled up me onto the couch and then onto the coffee table. Daddy stood behind him while I got a picture to make sure he didn't fall.

And this is just a cute picture that I got of Tyler while he was climbing all over the furniture.

Baby Blues

I love these blue eyes so much. I never imagined that I would have a blue eyed baby. Daddy has brown eyes and Mommy has green eyes. For some reason God blessed us with these beautiful blue eyes. The pediatrician told us that they would probably stay blue but they still might turn green. She said they definitely won't turn brown, she said if they were going to do that they would have turned by six months.

Future Football Star

According to Daddy, Tyler is destined to be a football star. He is definitely built for it. My little man has the strongest legs of any baby I know. Maybe Daddy will get his little football star.... but maybe not, only time will tell. Either way Tyler will always be a star in our minds.

Happy 4th of July

Tyler wants to say Happy 4th of July to everyone.

Tyler and Sammy

This picture shows you how great Sammy really is with Tyler. Sammy will let Tyler do anything to him and he doesn't care. Tyler really pushes the limits with Sammy. Tyler's new thing is that he likes to try and bite Sammy. Yeah I know kind of hairy and gross but what can I do. Tyler thinks everything belongs in his mouth, even the dog.

New Pacifier

Since I have been limiting Tyler's pacifier time. He has found a new way to satisfy his urge to suck.

Its a little rubber ducky that his Grandma Henderson sent him.

Big Boy Bath

Tyler has finally out grown his little raft that he used to lay on to get his bath. He loves taking a bath like a big boy. Bath time went from lasting about 5 min to around 20 or 30 because he wants to play so much. Here are some naked baby pictures of him enjoying his bath.

I love this little but!!
