Day off with Mommy!

I was lucky to get to spend all day with Ty! It was a work free and daycare free day :) We did venture into Nate's school to visit him for lunch. It was so nice, after a long week (even though technically it was a short week) to have some one on one time with my little man. Ty's been doing such a good job sleeping through the night and we were ready to start playing at 6:30 as always.... here is a peek at our fun day!

He rides and I zoom him (literally as fast as I can) and he thinks it's hysterical.



Ty loves looking out the window.... AND banging on it....

We are finally interested in our walker toy... He's had some good spills but gets right back up again!
He loves this Christmas present from his Grandma and Grandpa Murch.

This is Ty's FAVORITE thing to do right now... and I'm sure altogether we played this for about 1 1/2 hours total today.





He always crawls under things and then tries to sit up and realizes he is caught.... Mommy come to the rescue of course :)



You always know when Ty is starting to get tired because this is the only time he'll actually sit in one spot and look at something.....

And not too long after looking at some books..........
Now, we are up again and Ty's Grandma and Grandpa VG are coming over to babysit for the evening and Mommy and Daddy get a much needed night out :)

So it begins.....


So..... I finally gave in and am starting a blog on the VG crew. It's the middle of January, and our little man isn't so little anymore. Almost 10 1/2 months, 24lbs and 30inches long, he is becoming our little linebacker. He has began crawling EVERYWHERE and is non stop go - go - go. Here's a little bit of what we've been up to since Christmas....


My twin brother, Colin and Sara got married mid-Decemeber, and we were so blessed to spend a few days with them around New Years before they headed off to Germany. Colin has about 1 1/2 years left at an Army base in Germany! We can't wait for them to be state-side!

Ty loves to eat! In the last few weeks, at home, he has refused to eat most baby food and would rather have whatever is on our plates! He has proven to be rather picky at times and has also learned how fun it can be to feed Maggie! Although we don't think it's funny, Maggie sure loves to be by Ty's high chair when it's dinner time.....


Ty isn't quite sure what to think of the snow. He doesn't seem to hate it, but doesn't seem to be too thrilled.... He just sits back, all bundled up, and lets me pull him around on his sled. So cute in all his snow stuff!
Ty used to be so scared of this tunnel and now it is one of his favorite things! Great garage sale find :)

I really can't believe how big Ty is getting. His 1st birthday is slowly creeping up on us and I can't believe how fast time has gone. I have loved every second of being his mom and can't imagine life without him.
