Playing with Tyler

Side by Side



Here are pictures of both Parker and Tyler at about 2 months in the same outfit. I think it is interesting to compare the two...

Just another day in the life...

This is what happens when I pour my own cheerios...

More please!

Might as well drive cars through the mess.

A typical breakfast mess

2 Months!

Tyler is 2 Months Old!

Tyler is 2 months old (and a couple weeks). He has grown so big in the past month! At his 2 month check up he was 12 lbs, 12 oz (75th-90th percentile for his age). He is nearly 2 lbs bigger than Parker was at this age! He is a chubby little boy, but so cute. Just like Parker, he loves to talk. He smiles, laughs, and coos when you talk to him. He is very alert and focuses a lot more on faces recently.
He is getting much much better at holding his head up, but is still a little bit wobbly. Tyler is getting better at sleeping at night. He has slept through the night a handful of times, but generally wakes up once during the night to be fed and thankfully goes right back to sleep. We're trying to develop a routine, but have no nap schedule at all...he just sleeps whenever he feels like it.
Tyler likes his pacifier most of the time, but recently he has been sucking on his hand. It seems as if he is trying to put his whole fist in his mouth. Most of his newborn hair has fallen out and his peach fuzz hair is coming in. We thought for a while there that his hair might be red, but the new hair coming in seems to be more brown so we'll see when it gets a little bit longer.
I took pictures of Tyler with the teddy bear for this post, but I'm very disheartened about how lousy the pictures turned out so we'll have to go without for now. Apparently we need to take him to a professional because my pictures are terrible!

Elmo's World

Parker dressed up as Elmo for Halloween. He got to go trick or treating at the ward Trunk or Treat as well as at the District on Halloween night. Getting him into the costume was a struggle with major aligator tears, but eventually he warmed up to the idea.

He held out his bucket to collect candy and requested a "snack in the bucket".
Suckers are definitely his favorite

Tyler slept through most of the trick or treating fun...I'm sure he'll enjoy it a lot more in a year or two. (Excuse his blurry hands - they wave wildly when he gets excited)
