Park Days

Julie, Clemie, and Lily have been visiting from Denver for about a week. We have been spending lots and lots of time at the park with these four little monkeys. Parker & Clemie have spent lots of time playing on the playgrounds, giggling, (some fighting), and having fun. Tyler has loved the freedom to run around in wide open spaces investigating whatever strikes him at the moment. Lily has practiced walking for hours. She has gone from pretty much refusing to try to taking lots of steps all on her own. We're having lots of fun!

The Danger of Taking A Shower ....

...and leaving a 3 year-old to his own devices.

So rude!

A few minutes ago as we were driving in the car, Parker ripped Tyler's pacifier out of his mouth and threw it on the floor for the 3,851st time. "Parker" I reminded him, "it's not nice to steal Tyler's pacifier. How would you like it if he took the Batman that you are playing with?" To which he responded in a very sad voice: "Tyler's always takes my Batman. It's so rude!"
Funny, funny boy!

New Seats

Now that Tyler is 1, Parker got a new car seat and Tyler moved up to Parker's seat. Parker was VERY excited about his new seat!

The Land of the Big Trees

In July, we took at road trip to California to visit Sequoia National Park. It was great to get away for a couple days, escape the Las Vegas heat, and get to spend some time as a family. Parker loved exploring the woods and picking up sticks, riding the "vator" in the hotel, and swimming in the hotel "pond". I think Tyler's favorite part of the trip was the constant snacks in the car to keep kids happy, including a couple dum-dums. Parker didn't mind that part either :)

Apparently orange crayons are yummy too...

How do they get so busy when you look the other way for a minute?

It was a no go on the mashed potatoes...he spit them right back out everytime I put them in. Who would have guessed?



Please excuse the fact that I am letting apple just roll down Tyler's chin...I was apparently too busy focusing on the video aspect of my job. :)

The first couple bites of carrots were ok....after that, not so good....

Naps in our house aren't too fun these days....not enough rooms with doors to keep the noise down for whoever is asleep and MANY interrupted naps. Boo!
Tyler was asleep. Parker just screamed at the top of his lungs (apparently just to hear his own voice), then leaned over and whispered to me - shhhhh....Tyler's sleeping.

This is what dreams are made of...Parker's dreams, anyway...

These are the views from our window today.

To top it off, the trashman came today too. What could be better than big trucks and the garbage man coming to our neighborhood??

Tyler gives cereal a try...

Tyer tried cereal a couple weeks ago while Julie was in town with her two girls. Everyone got to be part of the video. Tyler is loving cereal!

Tyler is 6 Months Old!

Tyler is 6 months old! He's doing great and growing fast.

We went to the pediatrian today and he is 17 lbs 1 oz (25-50th percentile).

The past month there has been lots of changes for Tyler:

-he is enjoying delicious rice cereal

-he has three teeth coming in - all on the bottom

-he can roll over both ways, but more often from his back to his tummy

-he is desperately trying to crawl, he can scoot around a little bit to get a toy nearby or that kind of thing, but no official crawling or sitting up yet

-Tyler loves to smile and laugh and does both often
