And, he started a new thing during bath time where he "makes dinner" and asks me to eat it. Last night, he made hot dogs and tonight he made grilled cheese. (Really he pours water from a bowl into a plastic basket and wants me to drink out of it). But hey, to him he made mommy a meal!
Lastly... I went to the Dr. today for my once a month checkup. We were going to hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time. Well, she had a hard time finding it with the little doppler device so she said "hey let's just do an ultrasound. The machine is right here anyways." YAY! So I got to see the new one for the first time. Everything looked great. No pics yet, hopefully we'll get one next week when we (hopefully) find out the sex!
Until now, mommy was probably the only one who knew about this. Before bath time on Christmas Eve, Tyson wanted to wash his hands. He did, but then put his soapy hands in his hair. He thought it was tons of fun. Since he was about to take a bath anyways, I let him keep doing it. I think he would have used the entire soap bottle if I had let him.
Tyson's big present from Santa... a 4 wheeler! (Or tractor, as he insists)
Mommy got a new camera for Christmas (THANKS DADDY!). I got it a little early so I could use it for Christmas. Thank goodness because I was about to throw my other one out the window.
with kiddo #2!! The newest member of our family is expected to arrive around July 20th, which puts me at 10 weeks tomorrow. So far it's been pretty easy, only a few days of feeling bad. I never actually got sick with Tyson and so far this one has been about the same! I am gaining weight faster though - atleast in the tummy area :) I'm sure all of the holiday meals aren't helping. Ahhhh... oh well.
We're excited, but it's hard to get a read on Tyson. If we ask him if he wants a little brother or sister, he says "no" right away. But, if we ask him if he wants a little friend to play with he says "YEP!" I'm sure he won't fully understand it until he realizes that the new one's here to stay. We have him on video talking about this, but free time is pretty limited these days, so it may not make it on the site for awhile :)
I had Tyson all hyped up to see Santa. We had been reading Santa books at night and that day I kept asking him if he wanted to see Santa and tell him what he wanted for Christmas. He was really excited about it. So we made the trek to the mall, where there was no line. He was really excited until I got him out of the stroller and *tried* to put him in Santa's lap. Then it was freakout time. Santa got him to stand next to him on the bench, but he still wasn't too happy about that...
Oh well. Maybe next year!
He got a Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck toy... this is his reaction when he saw Mickey. Pretty excited, don't you think? He actually did this for a lot of his presents and then got more and more frustrated as his new toys would get taken away so he could open the next one!
Our house is officially on the market now, after weeks of HARD work. Our neighbors have already let us know they aren't happy with our decision to move, but we just can't keep this up forever. It's just too far to drive for both of us and it's not fair to Tyson either. We're in a great neighborhood and have excellent neighbors... hint hint.... :)
I'm excited about the opportunity so let's hope it all goes well!
height: 35.5 inches - 75-90% (means he should be atleast 6'0" - 6'1" as an adult - yea!)
weight: 27 lb 10 oz - 50% (it would help if he wasn't so picky)
head: 50 cm - 75%
He started out in the upper 90%s in his first year, but he's still on a steady growth curve so Dr. LaCour is still happy with his progression. He passed all of the "abilites" questions so he's right on track!
Then we headed to Chuck E Cheese to play for awhile and he loved it. They had a huge tube system with slides coming off of it but he was a little too short to climb up it. We'll have to try again next weekend with all of his cousins! He had fun playing a lot of other games.
At home, I surprised him with his big present from mommy and daddy - his own table and chairs! (I know, it's REALLY exciting... !!!)
We'll write more later! Happy Birthday!
