Mashed Bananas

Ty wanted to send a shout-out to his friend Carter Clements. He's one of his brother Riley's buddies. "Thanks for letting me borrow this cool outfit!"

I posted a few days back, Ty has recently learned how to wave hi & bye bye. As you can see by that video, his wave is an open and closed hand wave. It's been real cute to watch him do it. Even yesterday I looked back at him in his car seat and he had both hands going. As with any new skill, practice makes perfect! Ty seems to think mealtime is the best time to practice. Which is fine until he does it while holding pieces of banana! Which is fine, I guess. The poor guy doesn't have any teeth yet anyway. There's only so much those gums can do!

As I'm typing this, he is sitting next to me in his high chair eating. The menu: stuffed shells and bananas. Yeah, not very smart. Someone's gonna be backed up tomorrow! Do we become smarter parents with the next kid?

This will probably be my last post before Dennis & I leave for our annual Cancun trip. Yep, we're going without Ty. He'll stay with my parents for 2 1/2 days and then Dennis' parent's for 2 1/2 days. We're sooo thankful for them. I know, I know...all you moms out there are wondering how I could leave for a vacation without my baby. I was very sick to my stomach about it at first. But I know that we have to do these things for not only our marriage, but for our own sanity. I don't want to wake up one day after the kids have moved out and not know the man sleeping next to me. I want to put our marriage first, not only for us, but for our kids. Honestly, once I prayed about it, that sick feeling has passed. He will be fine, and probably a little spoiled while we are gone. So off we go...Thursday morning. You better bet I'll post when I get back :)
