Tyler's Third Birthday Party

We celebrated Tyler's third birthday on the 11th. We started off the party having some fun in our backyard with his friends. Tyler's main focus was to go "driving" and ignore all of his little friends....

...or show off by going down the slide head first:

Lizzy had fun carrying around the "baby" (which was actually a rather awkward sprinkler toy...):

Instead of eating any of the delicious food people brought for the potluck, Tyler sat and ate a sucker while his cousin Jen read to him:

Tyler got the hookup with all the presents:

Lizzy had a hard time understanding that it was Tyler's birthday, not hers:

Karen made worms and dirt (aka gummy worms, pudding, and crushed Oreo cookies)...

...as well as a sweet car cake:

Happy Birthday Tyler!!!

Lizzy's First Birthday

It's hard to believe that Lizzy is already a year old. We had her birthday party on Sunday. Here are a few pictures of the fun.

Yes, that is cake in her hair... however this is not unique--almost every time she eats, she slimes her head with the food.

Tyler had to help our with almost all of the presents.

No we did not encourage this, Tyler put it on himself. I'm going to keep this picture in reserve to use as blackmail during his teenage years. :)

Tyler Singing His Favorite Song

Currently Tyler's favorite song is "You've Got A Friend In Me" from the Toy Story movies (the Disney/Pixar one). He loves the song so much that every time we get in the car, he demands that we play it, then sings along at the top of his lungs... literally yelling the . There's only one problem... he sings the lyrics slightly wrong: instead of "you've got a friend in me" he sings "are you kidd'n me". Enjoy the vid below in action. Oh and thanks Allison for filming it!

Tyler and Lizzy In Their Elements

I think it would be an understatement to say that Tyler likes cars. Perhaps saying that he is completely obsessed with cars would be more accurate. Here's our little monkey playing with some of his cars:

Lizzy didn't like the bottle at first, but she loves it now! She can guzzle a whole bottle down in no time flat. Here's some action shots:

Our Smiley Little Drool Machine

Lizzy is almost 6 months old and I can't believe it! The past couple of weeks her cute little personality has really started to come out. She is becoming a very smiley and happy little girl. Mom and Dad's fingers are her favorite chew toys right now. Karen put this on Facebook, but she got her two front teeth for Christmas... literally. They're kinda hard to see, but you can definitely feel them when she's gnawing away at your fingers--OUCH!! If you see me and I'm missing a finger, you'll know why.

Here are a couple of photos I took of our little drool machine the other day. A bib you ask? ...we put a bib on her even when she's not eating so that she doesn't completely soak her clothes with her slobber. She also is a master of spitting up, so I guess it's kind of dual-purpose.

Here is a video of her. She can sit up all by herself... well, as long as she has the Boppy behind her. She loves playing with toys and can actually entertain herself, which makes her Mommy VERY happy.
