Tyler the 1 Year Old!!

I still can’t believe it but our little Tyler is a year old! So here are our 12 month pictures.. He is cruising around and loves walking but still needs to hold our hands to walk. His favorite things to eat are MEAT (beef, chicken, pork, fish – you name it!), yogurt and pouches. He now has 7 teeth with at least two more ready to pop through the gums. He is still 25.5 lbs and 30 inches tall – pretty much the same as he was at 9 months old!.


A quick pictorial recap of the last year..


A couple days old..



1 month old




3 months old




6 months old




10 months old



We started with our normal chair and Picasso Monkey..



However it turns out Picasso falling to the floor was hilarious..



Savannah kept us company – asking if it was her turn yet the whole time..




Then we moved to lounging followed by trying to get out of the chair..



After our feeble attempt at our normal pictures, Tyler was playing at the table and I got a few good close up snaps.. Still such a happy boy, and so handsome! Note the family tradition of a mullet coming in? hehe




And for comparison – here is Savannah on her first birthday. :)

The Blue Box

Tyler loves playing with the dogs' bowls. I remember Savannah learning pretty quickly when we said No but this guy, not so much. Savannah has been helping us a lot with getting the books onto the table so he can't reach them. The other day I nor she were fast enough and he spelled a ton of dog food onto the floor. First I brought out the dustpan but there was just too much. Savannah took it from me to clean up anyways.

So I brought out the stiffer and no shocker she wanted it too. After the first few sweeps that sent the dog food flying all over I remembered a picture I had seen online. I got the painter's tape and made a box on the floor. I then showed her how to push the dog food with the sweeper into the box. She took over and starter sweeping away while I emptied the blue box with the dustpan. A great team!

Quick Pics

I need to get a bunch of pictures posted from our beach trip but here's a bunch that I love!

I Need Coffee

When I work on the couch with the kidlets around Savannah exclaims "I need to work too!" and grabs her computer. Lately it's been followed by "I need coffee to work Mommy.". She's figured out real life already lol

The Train

Savannah has a new found love for old toys. That is, toys that Tyler is interested in! She hadn't played with her letter train much but now that brother thought it was fun she's all over the house with it.

I've kept it in two pieces so he gets the back part and she gets the front - the front is more fun but he's entertained by the simple things.. Like a straw at a restaurant. He really makes it easy for us!

Swim Lessons!

The kidlets have started swim lessons. Savannah had a few minutes of crying for mommy the first day but has been doing great ever since. Tyler, well, he’s not a happy camper. It’s not helped by him teething so he’s been very blah most days. Hopefully he gets more comfortable but only time will tell.
