Meet the fam

We share our house with numerous critters. Some welcome, some not. I just want to be able to remember the animals we had when Tyler was a baby. Enjoy getting to know our furry friends.

As mentions in previous posts, Spencer is the world's coolest Rat Terrier/Border Collie/ McNab mix. A little OCD over tennis balls? Perhaps. Every time I see a tri-colored dog I think it looks like Spencer. It doesn't matter if it is long-haired or short-haired, big or small, they all look like Spencer. It drives Manuel nuts. 

I have had George since he was a tiny baby and I was in college. Yeah, he's old. Actually he's *only* 10 years old which isn't that old in cat years. He's fluffy and his hair is like cotton candy and gets everywhere- but we love him. He's the only cat who doesn't go outside a million times a night and leave dead "offerings" by the back door. Thanks George

Prince decided to go on vacation for two months right before Tyler was born. I was crazy hormonal and thought he had been eaten by a dog or run over by a car or something. We still are not sure exactly what happened to him, but he came home thin, covered in fleas, and very hungry after two months of being away! He doesn't go much farther than the yard now.

 Ninja Cat
Ninja was found at the Chowchilla High School Farm in May 2010. He was tiny and screaming so I brought him home and for the next 3 (?) months we bottle fed him. He's crazy and has convinced Prince to join his insane ways.

It was super hard to find pictures of all the animals. Funny how that happens after you have a baby.

Overdue Update

I remember when I was little I really wanted a diary. I was super good about writing in it at first, my thoughts and whatever else came into my nine year old mind. And then I didn't write anymore. I'm super jealous of those people who have volumes of their old journals and such. I am not one of those people.

Here is a conglomeration of pictures and video of the cutest 7 month old on the plant

Tyler is really into making faces these days. I love getting to see his adorable personality!

He recently discovered his feet. Yum

Look Ma- No Hand!! Crazy cell phone pictures

Somebody is having a great time in the pack and play. (That's his foot that you are seeing!)

This should be in every bathroom- EVERYWHERE! So handy! Even Moms have to pee sometimes. (This one is in Buy Buy Baby)

Tyler went to a first birthday party recently. It was co-ed! He enjoyed the bounce house/slide (spectator mostly!)

We had to run up to Modesto to pick up a bridesmaid dress for Devon's wedding. Tyler loved looking at himself in the big mirror!

We went to the Los Banos spring fair. I didn't take a single picture while we were there, but this is what Tyler did for almost two hours after we got home! (And he slept for about 45 minutes on the ride home) I love long nap days.
