Brace yourself, Grandparents!

I have been going back and forth on uploading this video, or not. Tye has been doing so great on the playground lately, and so I thought it would be cute to show him off a little, and of course, the one time I what happens. He did not skip a beat...and kept on going, but it will make you gasp a bit, nonetheless...especially if you are a grandparent.

We also had a wonderful Easter weekend, and here is our family photo with little "squirm bug". He just does not know what sitting still means anymore.

Do we look a year older? This was Easter last year.

Happy Birthday Grandma!

We celebrated my Great Grandma's 104th birthday on March 8th, up in Fredericksburg. For those of you who have not heard of this historic German town, it is about an hour west-ish of Austin. It is a very touristy town with lots of little antique shops and bed and breakfasts. It is the home of the Nimitz Museum and Enchanted Rock is about a 20 minute drive outside of town. We have been going up there since we were kids and my aunt and uncle have restored and added to my grandma's old house. The whole family can now stay up there at the same time. That is 13 of us total. We had a great time and Grandma got to pick the menu of pork roast, mashed potatoes and a fantastic chocolate cake. Obviously the nursing home cuisine is a bit lacking. Here is the family photo we took at grandma's nursing home as we were heading out of town.

Just for fun, here is a video of Tye laughing hysterically at a tickle session with Russ.

It reminded me a lot of this one...when he was about 5 months.

Since we have been back from F'burg, we have been busy, busy with playdates and rodeo festivities and a wonderful visit from Grammy and Pappa. Here are a few pics to enjoy.

Rascal Flatts at the Rodeo.

Play date with some of Tye's buddies (Joshua, Josiah, and Asher). He has so much fun. You can tell from their sweaty hair and pink cheeks.

I loved this pic. Tye loved watching the little chicks hatch at the Livestock Show. It was so cute...Tye could barely peek his head above the glass, and this little chick appeared to have noticed him and was staring right back at him.

Russ and Tye checking out the huge "taa-ters" (tractors in Tye talk)

Love and blessings,

random pictures...

Let's are a few random pictures from the past week or so. He now has officially gotten 2 more teeth, so now we are up to 6, wa-hoo! He has gotten both of them on the left side on top and bottom, so if the right ones don't come in soon, we are going to a little asymmetrical for a whle and if you know me...I am checking for the right side every day :), I enjoy symmetry and balance. Enjoy the pics...

Doesn't everyone have a picture like this?

Picking front yard flowers...he never noticed the one tucked behind his ear, and yes, he was trying to put another one IN his ear...boys!

Playdate with Travis and cousin, Charley. Tye LOVES to hug, but you have to limit it, otherwise the hug becomes a wrestling maneuver.

Happy Birthday Alyson!!

We celebrated my cousin's fiancee, Alyson's, birthday last weekend over some awesome steak and cake. Yummy! It was great to have all of us together again. It had been a while.

Alyson's wishful thinking...

Troy is modeling one of the this the making of a supermodel?

Tye's cousin...Charley...such a cutie :)

So here is a video of one of Tye's new favorite toys...a good ol' box and rope. Who knew? He especially loves riding it at my parent's house because the leaves make it really slide well.

Tye is also cutting a few more for sure and I think one or two more are on their way, so needless to say, it has been a few fussy/whiney days with a fever, but all is well. Here is a pic of Tye showing off his teeth.

Thanks for reading and blessings,
