Birthday Boy

Ty turned two on Halloween and so he got lots of sugar that day! We had pizza...which is one of his favorites and then we sang Happy Birthday and he loved blowing out his candle (he has had practice doing it at Nana and Papa's house...he likes to help Nana blow out her candles). Then we opened his many gifts and he was literally shaking with excitement with each present he opened. Cake and ice cream followed (Mommy made a car cake because Ty loves the movie CARS). It was a lot of fun and we are so glad Auntie Melinda and Uncle Landan and Nana and Papa could help us celebrate it! Happy 2nd Birthday Ty! We love you!

Halloween 2009

Ty is getting bigger and he can now do trick or treating! Ty practiced learning/saying the "trick or treat" phrase during the entire month of October so he would be a pro by the time Halloween rolled around! We would even put him in his costume so he could get used to it too! It worked brilliantly! When we did the Church Trunk or Treat and the handful of houses in our neighborhood he rocked it! Ty knocked on doors and said "trick or treat" and if allowed he would help himself to the basket of candy. He always said "thank you" and more than once he tried to help people close their doors when he was done. He had to be the cutest TYger we've ever seen!


Unfortunately, we don't have a photo yet to document Ty's love for gum or more importantly what he will do to get gum in his mouth. We thought it might be fun for us to describe one of our most recent stories and then you can create the imagery on your own.

It was morning and the normal noises of breakfast and getting ready were broken by a sudden quietness. Quiet + Ty = Mischief. I had only stepped away for a minute to use the bathroom and when I came out to the quiet I saw an overturned laundry basket with at least 10 gum wrappers strewn around it. There amidst the wrappers was Ty with a mouthful of green mint gum. In a matter of minutes he had found a ladder of sorts (overturned basket) and reached the gum that was on our bedroom dresser. He consumed every remaining piece of gum in the package and with that scene before me I just couldn't get mad...all I could do was laugh, admire his very minty breath, and hide the rest of the gum in the house!

Missing Camera...

The digital camera went temporarily missing one day and when I checked the photos it turns out Mr. Ty figured out how to turn it on and take a picture of himself. I wonder how he liked the flash?! This photo was the result and we think that with the wash out effect and dark nostrils he kind of resembles Voldemort...

Dip It

Dip It...Dip It Good! That would have to be one of Ty's many philosophies. Ty loves to dip his food. Nuggets into ketchup. Toast into oatmeal. Cookies into milk. He is an all opportunity dipper.

Hello Mouth!

One day after work Jamie and Ty were goofing around (which is a daily occurrence) and then Ty started to pat Jamie's belly and then moved on to being fascinated with Jamie's mouth. He started saying "mouth" repeatedly and then moved on to saying "hello" into Jamie's mouth like he was trying to talk to someone down in the his throat. It was so funny! Go to our WEBSITE to see the video! We will have it up soon!
