My First Trip To Daddy's Firehouse

Daddy showed me around...
I tried Daddy's boots on, but my whole body fit into one boot!


This is me sitting in Daddy's helmet.

Cool, can I go on a ride?

I can drive, I got this dad!

Look! The tire is twice as big as I am.

Thanks Dad, that was fun!

Grandma Discovers a New Favorite Toy

My wonderful parents are always volunteering (and even requesting) to watch Ty one or two nights a week while I go to worship team practice at church or small group. This week she discovered that Ty LOVES to look at this smiley face toy. It's just a cheap Chucky Cheese Toy that makes a funny noise when you shake it, but he doesn't care about that. All he wants to do is for you to just hold it still so he can stare and laugh at it. I think Ty entertained Grandma and Grandpa that night.

Oh My Gosh!!!

He did it!!! He just rolled over! He was supposed to be napping but decided to wake up crying halfway through, like usual. So I went in to put the pacifier in his mouth and right there in front of me...He rolled onto his back! I couldn't believe it. I ran and got the camera to take a picture of him and grab my phone to call Dennis. How exciting!

2 Month Check-up

"See my Snoopy bandaids, pretty cool huh?"

Today was Ty's 2 Month Check-up. Usually we see Dr. Fledderjohn, but she was out of town. So we met Dr. Hodson. She's also very nice and answered all our "1st time parent" questions. Ty is growing well, as you can see from his stats. He's in the 75th percentile in all categories. And he took his vaccines like a champ! All 5 shots and 1 oral dose. It still breaks my heart though. I stepped out to make his next appt time while Dennis stayed with him.

SLEEP for Mother's Day!

Mother's Day was WONDERFUL. My amazing husband arranged for Ty to spend the night with his grandma. Dennis took me to dinner. I actually got to eat an uninterrupted hot meal. After dinner we went to see a movie, Fool's Gold with Mathew McConnahay & Kate Hudson. Then we went for icecream. And then...the best part...I got to sleep all night! I have to say, I did miss my little guy. But I was so thankful for the rest :)

Dinner with Uncle Steve & Graund-Auntie Frosty

Tonight Ty & I had dinner with Uncle Steve and Graund-Auntie Frosty. No, Graund is not a spelling error. We've decided that's what Ty will call her. We enjoyed spending time with them as well as the YaYa's. They are a group of wonderful women that I'm proud to be a part of.

March of Dimes '08

We had beautiful weather today for the March of Dimes walk. Team Riley had 17 walkers/riders. This year we did the Greenwood walk. Although, not as big scale as the Indianapolis walk, they put on a pretty nice deal. The website says the trail was 4 miles, but I'm thinking they meant 4K since we finished it in a little over an hour. I'm so proud of my non-walking family members who walked it with us. The things we'd do for Riley :)
