On the MOVE

Oh boy...and so it begins.

I love that smile!
Pushing back
And going forward (on carpet, I might add!)
Exhausted and snuggling w/Aunt Dana after all that work :)

Guess what color Ty learned this week at Preschool????
They do an amazing job with Ty at Friendship Kids Preschool.
Especially Ty's teacher, Mrs Tori.

And this is exactly why I send him! He has so much fun doing messy things that Mommy wouldn't dare try at home :)

Drew's Playdate w/Lydia

Drew got to spend some time with his friend Lydia Stewart today! These beautiful babies are just a few weeks apart. I'm excited to watch them grow up together.
These two babies were friends before they even made their first appearance. Here is Drew & Lydia in their mommy's belly at our "Amy & Amiee Shower".
After lunch, we went swimming with the Stewarts. I didn't get the best pictures. It's hard to hold a wet baby who can't sit by themself and a camera at the same time ;) But he was super adorable in his swimtrunks.

Ty's first time swimming was with the Stewarts too. Here's a pic:

Swim Lessons

Ty had his first Swim Lesson today.
This is a 4 week Parent/Child class at the YMCA.
It's for 18 mo to 3 years. So Ty is one of the oldest in the class. But I think this was better b/c he was so proud to show off his "moves".

At the beginning and end of each class they do these cute preschool songs w/motions to get them used to splashing and moving around.
Here Ty is doing the song, "This is the way we splash our hands, splash our hands, splash our hands...This is the way we splash our hands, in the swimming pool." :)
Then the instructor throws out a bunch of ducks into the pool and the kids have to kick to move around and collect them.

Ty likes to get a duck then shoot it in the basket. Look at that perfect form!

The "Itzy Bitzy Spider..."
"...out came the sun & dried up all the rain..."
These songs are cute b/c it gets them used to having the water sprinkled on top of them as they do the motions.
Drew was there looking on.
Afterwards, we went outside to play in the "big pool".

Bib Time

It's that time in baby development where drool is a constant stream and babyfood gets everywhere! Time to start wearing bibs.

Before I was a mom, I always thought it was silly that moms had their babies where bibs all the time. Weren't they just for feeding time? Plus it covers up their cute outfits! But as with MANY other "I'd never" comments I made before I was a mom, I've had to eat those words.

At this phase in a baby's life, if I don't keep a bib on him, his shirt is constantly wet from drool or stained from the yummy carrot baby food.

Fun in the Sun

I have some of the best friends. And what's even better is that we get to work together! And play together. Today was one of our many playdates. Bri had us all over to her neighborhood pool, and boy did we all invade the baby pool!
My mom watched Drew, so that Ty & I could have a day together. I love that little guy!
This is one of my newest friends Shelly & her little guy Layton (left) and my friend Emily's little man Gab (right).
My "way-too-good-looking-to-be-a-mom-of two-kids" friend, Katie and her adorable little Addy. Katie & I go way back to high school and now we work together :)
The adorable Addy again.

Miss Mya Young.
Her momma Carissa is one of the best friends anyone could have. She was there with her two other kiddos, Ayden & Crew, as well. I didn't get a picture of everyone, there were so many of us.
The beautiful Emily and handsome Gabe.
I really enjoyed my day at the pool w/Ty.

...and he was conked out before we got out of the neighborhood.

1st Babyfood

Drew is 4 1/2 months old now. And he's been eating cereal for a month, so it's time to try babyfood. On today's menu...Squash!

"Hmm...somethings wrong w/my cereal mom. It's orange."

"I don't know about this."

"Hmm...well that's not too bad."

"I could get used to this!"
