A little catch up....

I really can't believe Ty will be turning 1 in 2 weeks! He has lost so much of his "baby face" and just is looking more and more like a little boy. Everyday is a new adventure with Ty, he definitely keeps us on our toes! Here's what has been happening in the VandeGuchte household in the last 2 weeks.....

Ty was very excited to be watching his daddy's favorite team win the Superbowl! Go PACK!
Ty and his friend, Ryley, are taking swim lessons together through MVP (Tiny Tadpoles :) ) Although it doesn't look like in the picture, Ty LOVES the pool. All he wants to do is splash, kick, and stick his head into the water. Looks like we are going to have a fun summer!
Ty loves to play in the kitchen.... opening and closing drawers/cupboards, taking out towels, spatulas, measuring cups (which are his favorite), and anything else within reach...

This is Ty's new thing when he sees the red light on the camera........ very cute, but it's getting harder and harder to get pictures with his eyes open!! :)
We have finally mastered drinking from our sippy cup, all by ourselves (without Nate or I holding it for him).

Last but certainly not least, I was able to get my favorite laugh of Ty's on video... so enjoy :)

Nate is wrapping up his basketball coaching and is beginning to prepare for Track season. We are all ready for the snow to be gone so we can begin to enjoy walks, playing outside, and the sunshine! We also know that the sooner the snow is gone, the sooner summer will be here :) Until next time......

Snow Day!!!

The VandeGuchte family, just like everyone else, was SO excited to have the day off! We were blown away when we awoke this morning and looked out our windows. All we saw was SNOW SNOW and MORE SNOW! I have to admit, I never thought we'd actually get that much, but for once the weatherman's prediction was right on. We were excited for a day of snuggling, watching movies, and lots of playing! Hard to believe we got about 17 inches basically over night!

Nate and Ty in the snowplowed path in our driveway!

This is Ty sitting at the end of our driveway which means this is how much snow we had in our street!!!
Drifts on our deck!
Ty is learning his baby signs. He now knows "more" (which he is doing in the picture - he looks like he's clapping) and "all done". He tries to do them at the right time, but we are still working on that. haha...

So the rest of the day we hung around, did some hand stands....

played with Maggie.....

.....and worked on perfecting our walking skills!!!

Ty is gaining more confidence with letting go and taking a few steps! He thinks it is so funny when he does is successfully.

Of course, we've had lots of falls but I have a feeling that by the time we hit his 1st birthday he'll be a walking machine!

Hoping to have another snow day soon :)
