1/2 a Year Down....

...only 1/2 a year to go??! Seriously, where has the time gone? Can Tyler really be 6 months old already?? These last 6 months have just flown by and my little guy is quickly turning into a little boy :(

Some of the things Tyler has been doing lately include sitting like a champ, playing more with Parker, playing in his exer-saucer, trying new foods (eats oatmeal, rice cereal, green beans, sweet potatoes, & peas. Squash didn't really agree with him...maybe we'll try again in a few months!), learning to drink out of a sippy, taking better naps (1-2 hours sometimes!), spitting and blowing raspberries, loves bath time, hates the car seat (unless his cover thing is off, then he tolerates it!), and just being as cute as ever!

He is growing like a weed too, he gained 2 1/2 pounds in the last 2 months making his weight a good 17 lbs 11 oz (55%)and he grew just over 2 inches making his length 27 inches (72%). His head circum. is 17.5 inches (71%). Tyler has already passed Parker's stats at his, get this, 1 year checkup!!! I have a big boy on my hands, but we sure do love him!! Happy 1/2 Birthday Tyler-bug!!

He got his little outfit (minus the jeans) for Christmas from my's a 12-month size!!

Moving Day

No we are not moving...yet anyways! This past Saturday we decided to FINALLY move Tyler into Parker's room!! We had to completely rearrange things to make everything fit, but it looks really good now! It's so nice to have our room back. Parker was a little jealous of having to share his room at first, but now seems to be fine with it. I'm still trying to figure out the whole nap time routines now to make sure they both get the rest they need!

Despite what it looks like, we can still open the closet door! Don't mind the missing door on the changing table...Parker stripped the holes that the hinges screw into, so we still need to fix that!
The room all put project = Bedding for Parker's bed. We had bought him some sheets to start off with, but he needs a thicker blanket for now, so I just put my blanket that my Grandma made for me for my High School Graduation. It works for now, while I'm still trying to figure out just exactly what I want to do for his bed!

Ready to Ski!!

While we were cleaning out Parker's room he found Chris' ski backpack and helmet and wanted to wear them, it was pretty funny! One day he will be able to go up with Chris...


Tyler started sitting up on his own on January 3 or so and he's doing so well! He seems to like sitting and playing much more than laying down on his back, but who wouldn't?! He still loses his balance after a while sometimes, but for the most part he is a professional sitter!

So Hungry!

One Sunday after church we had just walked in the door and apparently Parker was a little hungry because he didn't even wait for us to get his coat off and put him in his chair before he started eating!

Precious Moments...

Last week I was sitting on the couch and I looked over to check on Tyler and this is what I saw...
This is about as far as Tyler will go when it comes to rolling over, he just doesn't really like it, just like his brother!

Handsome Little Man

We got Parker some suit pants, belt, and tie for Christmas (he needs a new shirt too, but I couldn't find one in his size before Christmas). Here he is showing off his new clothes, which are a little big still, but will allow some growing room!

(It looks a little sloppy in this picture, mainly because his shirt is a little too short and won't stay tucked in!!)
He's growing up so fast! :(

Christmas Dinner

On Christmas afternoon we went down to Idaho Falls to have Lunch/Dinner at my aunt and uncle's house. We had soup and salad and garlic bread. It was all so delicious!! There were 3 different kinds of soup and I may have had a little of each! For dessert we had Peppermint Ice Cream, cookies and these amazing Mint Chocolate Brownies that my Grandma made. It was fun to get all together on Christmas. We sat my cousin Boyd and Parker in their booster seats next to each other on the floor and well, they weren't really fans of that idea, or at least Parker wasn't...Parker is about 8 months older than Boyd and they play pretty well together. It was really fun to watch them chase each other through the house! They made my aunt and I laugh pretty hard at one point. We'll have to get them together more often.
