Tyler’s Half Year

At 6 months Tyler is 20.5 lbs and 27 inches tall..For his pictures he was in a more serious mood than usual – I didn’t get the big laughs and smiles, just little grins. He’s rolling over both ways but mostly still from back to belly. He loves when Savannah shares her toys with him and makes faces at him (they have spitting wars). Eating is going soo much better – he currently eats peas, applesauce, zuchinni, sweet potatoes, acorn squash, butternut squash, bananas and rice cereal.

He is also starting to sit really well – supported of course – as his new pictures show.

Dino Tyler

The other day I received my order from www.sincerelyapril.com for Tyler's hat. April is the wife of one of my techs and does great crochet work so when I saw a pic of a cute crochet hat online I messaged her to see if she could make one for Tyler. Well, it came out great! It took a few days to try it on since it's been in the 70s here buy today was chilly and perfect for a hat. He loved the braids hanging down to play with and gnaw and I love how stinkin cute he looks!

Tyler's Birth Page

Instead of baby books I'm doing what are called Smashbooks for them. Here is the page I did for Tyler's birth complete with ambulance and toilet.

At Attention

This morning on the way to school I had told Savvy we could go to the Big Park after school buy it had rained real good so everything was soaked. I felt bad - maybe one day I will look at the weather - but she did really well with me telling her we couldn't go. While I fed Tyler she played by herself (doing who knows what) then started bringing her cars into the family room and asking of we could watch Cars. I told her we could after dinner and with a little while she said ok.

So after dinner I turned on Mater's Tall Tales with Savvy on the couch and Tyler on his playmat. She brought over her farm to play with Tyler, he got excited and turned into his belly to watch. She even gave him the pig to play with!

When I finished clearing the table I went to hang out with them. Tyler was watching the TV so I propped him up in his Boppy and he shocked the hell out of me and sat! He was wobbly and couldn't get back up when he went too fat forward but mommy was still proud. Savannah even clapped saying "Yay Tyler!". I'm telling you, she is the best big Sister around!

We All Giggle for Ice Cream!

Tonight while I was making dinner Savvy was playing with her kitchen making dinner. It consisted of ice cream and a pear (her latest favorite food).

She kept running from the dining room where her kitchen is to the family room, the front door and back. Low and behold I look and she had been giving Tyler dinner! He was surrounded by ice cream - which I say is a perfect dinner for a teething little fella.

He did get tired of the playpen so I moved him and his treats to his Highchair. It worked perfectly to keep him busy almost until dinner was ready.

Bottle Grabber

I still don't use bottles too much so this may not be new but last night when I was reading to Tyler before bed he held his bottle by himself! He drank more than half of it before he needed help with the angling of it. Considering he only napped maybe an hour and a half all day he should've been really tired too!

Breakfast Helper

Savvy can be quite the Helper when she wants to be. She has been asking to help feed Tyler now that he is eating a little from a spoon. With a little help from Daddy she was able to do as well as he'd let her.

There were a couple quick times she got distracted and the spoon jerked to the side. He is very tolerant of these kinds of things though I'm guessing a lot of second kids are due to necessity. I only found two little spills on the ground which is a feat in itself considering Savvy is known to have more than that feeding herself!

It was nice to be able to eat my breakfast all at once!
