Tyler's Travels and lots of firsts!

Tyler has been on the move (literally and figuratively!) and has experienced lots of firsts. In sorta chronological order . . . .

We attended the World Ag Expo (or Farm Show as it's known to its friends) is the worlds largest agriculture exposition in the world. You can see almost anything you would ever want or need to run a farm or ranch. Mostly is a way for farmers to kick back, hang out, and grab a beer with each other. The rest of us (non- ranchers) walk around and enjoy the sites. The place is huge!!
 I MEANT to take a picture of Tyler next to one of  the huge truck tires so I could take pictures of him as he got older and see his growth. In reality- the only pictures I took were of the inside of of a RV! Whoops, maybe next year!
Yeah- it's that big!

Here's Tyler's newest infatuation. I sat him on the ground next to her and he started rolling! Until then, he had only rolled belly to back twice (about two months ago!). I guess he just didn't have anything worth rolling towards!


He's also working hard on sitting up himself. He likes to be able to look around and see what's going on.

Just to keep his options open, Tyler also REALLY likes this curly haired cutie. Seriously- have you ever seen better hair? She just happens to be the older sister of Tyler's other love (above).

We also went to Tyler's first golf tournament, which included Tyler's first trip to Chowchilla. It was a beautiful day and we even snagged a trophy or two! Unfortunately it was just for a photo op. Check out my stealth photography skills (yeah- that's my shadow- whoops)

When I was on my crazy-pregnancy-induced-hormone-rollercoster, I would watch videos of babies laughing. There is just something about watching the pure joy of babies and makes everything right in the world. Here's my first attempt of getting Tyler's laugh on film. Enjoy!

As much as people (err Grandpa and Dad) want him to be into sports, this is what Tyler could be found doing most of the Superbowl. Maybe in a couple years guys.

Here's the first official video of Tyler rolling over from back to belly. Totally not interesting unless you are a new parent.

We spent President's Day weekend at my parents and managed to take Tyler to see the ocean for the first time. He didn't make it to the sand because we were in Morro Bay, we will have to save that first for later this year when its a little warmer!

Doesn't he look thrilled to be wrapped in a blanket and wearing a hat?!

A rare family photo!


Manuel suggested I take a picture because I'm the one whose always behind the camera! It looks sunny, but trust me- it was cold!

Just because

I finally found my camera, which had been missing since Christmas- so here are some new pictures!!!
Tyler opening his first Christmas present.

We recently got Tyler a highchair. He loves it! Right now he just plays with his toys, but soon he will be enjoying meals here.

Knocked out on his four month birthday (in a most adorable outfit that is sized 6-9 months!)
Oh, the things we do to our kids.

How I spent my 30th birthday . . . .

I was awake most of the night because Tyler was teething or just plain didn't feel well. He was very restless all night, needless to say- neither of us got much sleep. I took this picture of my alarm clock after I had checked my facebook for the 1000th time that night. Happy Birthday to me!

The rest of the day was much better than the start! The sun was shining and it was a very nice day. I had a completely delicious tri-tip sandwich at Doghouse Grill (which is Firestone's for all my coastal readers!) with a friend and her two adorable kids.

Tyler decided it would a good idea to have a huge poop blow-out which required a full wardrobe change (shoes included). I'll spare you the details, but it was something else.

After lunch we headed to a self-serve frozen yogurt place. Yum. Frozen yogurt might be my most favorite thing, ever. If there was a yogurt place within ten minutes of my house, I think I would be there everyday. Maybe it's a good thing it's so far away.

When I returned home I found two surprises waiting for me. First was a beautiful bouquet of flowers from Manuel. He's not one to send flowers for just any occasion, so this was a special treat. Also waiting for me was my NEW jogging stroller!!

The stroller comes complete with a pedometer AND speakers for an MP3 player! We are stylin' now!

Manuel came home with even more presents for me (as if flowers and the stroller weren't enough!!). We went out to dinner and then had (even more) frozen yogurt for dessert!!

Overall, it was a great (albeit long) day!!
