A boy and his dog

In true Bowlin style, Tyler LOVES animals. The dog, Spencer, is his favorite. If you have never had the great pleasure of meeting the world's best dog- he is an almost nine year old Rat Terrier/Border Collie/McNab mix that looks like a Basenji or Kelpie (if you follow dog breeds). I got him when I was in college and he has pretty much been my shadow since then. He defiantly has a special place in my heart for me- and the feeling is mutual. He's a little OCD and has a weird breathing problem, but you gotta love him.

Since Tyler has been about four months old, Spencer has been a constant entertainer. All he has to do is walk into the room and Tyler lights up. He could be having a huge crying meltdown and then turn all smiles at the sight of the dog. Our newest game is sit on the floor and throw a tennis ball for Spencer. They both love it. I can only imagine how they will be when Tyler can play with him when he's older. Good stuff. This is what memories are made of!

A for effort, F for completion


Pinterest has so many cute (and easy looking!) craft ideas that it makes me want to try them all. I even went out and bought the stuff for a bunch of them. How many have I actually finished? Next to zero. No, actually it is zero. There might be one, but I can't think of it off the top of my head. The only crafty thing I have finished is a certain for my bathroom with fabric that I bought for a different project (toy box below), but it ended up not being enough.

What do I want to finish you ask?

Well, first I would love to finish the diaper-box-turned-toy-box project that has been sitting in my living room for MONTHS. Such a cute idea, but involves ironing and sewing that I just haven't had the time. Sigh

I also have all the components to make a super cute Easter wreath out of tissue paper. Will it get done before Easter? Maybe Easter 2013. Wouldn't that be so cute in Easter pastels? I'll let you know if I ever finish it.

Not Pinterest related but I also started crocheting a blanket for Tyler before he was born. The blanket it about 4 inches wide so far :(. It's a nice quiet activity that I can do when Tyler sleeps, but I usually try to use that time for other activities- like eating and showering.

New Pics

Turns out I suck at blogging. I just think most days there is really nothing for me to say. I know most people enjoy being inundated with baby pictures so here is a bunch!!

Look who can sit now!!

He's really into touching faces right now.

Look Ma- No Hands!

If you can't read the outfit it says "Fear the Beard". Yeah- Dad's ready for baseball season to start. Google Brian Wilson Giants if you don't get it!
So far, he's liking Oatmeal. Yum!!

Except when he tries to feed himself

Toe Ring? =)
