First Week of Day Home

Well, Tyler has started at the Day Home on his own now. He went on Tuesday and today. I stayed with him for the morning on Monday, and then I stayed for the first hour Tuesday Morning. He cried on and off throughout the day, but when he was busy playing, Joanne said he was ok. I'm about to go pick him up for today, so I guess we'll see how he did. Here's a couple pictures of Ty this week. We have been spending a lot of time outside and at the park. He likes the swings. Also, I wanted Tiff to see his sweet camo shorts from Children's Place! We love them. Also, his hair looked pretty red in the standing picture, so I put it on.

It's A Beautiful Day

The weather today is so nice. It is currently 18 degrees! I am loving it, and so it Ty. I took Tyler outside and we played on the "green" belt for about 45 minutes, until nap time. I say "green", because as you can tell from the pictures it is still pretty brown! He can't get enough of being outside lately.

Walking with his new toy. He's really good with it.

I've been trying for a long time to take a picture of the both of us with him actually facing the camera!

Tyler finally slept through the night last night!! He went to bed at 7:40 and got up at 6:10. It was so awesome! I'm hoping he gets into a routine, but am not holding my breath. I really tried to keep him stimulated today so that he was using a lot of energy. They say that is supposed to help. I guess we'll see.

We went to a play group at Tyler's new Day Home on Thursday. He seemed to have a pretty good time. He was playing with other kids, and even crawled over to Joanne (the provider) a few times and gave her some snuggles. I think that maybe he will do alright when he starts going next week. Our first day is Monday, when I will go and spend the morning with him there. On Wednesday, he will be going for 6 hours by himself. I'm a little nervous, but I'm sure he'll be fine after a couple of days.

Tyler has a truck wagon that he loves to go for rides in. When it's nice enough, I try to take him every day. It hasn't really been that nice the last few days, so yesterday was the first time we went in a couple of days. He was loving it. Then Trevor set up a blanket in the back yard and he was having a ball crawling around in the mud and playing outside.

Easter Weekend

Well, we had a pretty fun weekend. On Friday, we went out to Wizard Lake and got to hang out with family. We had a wiener roast and pulled Beck and Ty around in a double wagon-which they absolutely loved! It is fun having cousins so close in age. That night, we went over to Russell and Andrea's house for a BBQ. We took the boys in the hot tub and watched The Fantastic Mr. Fox, which was really good. Tyler had a great time. He was laughing like crazy at Beck when they had a bath together.

Tyler got sick Friday night and woke up numerous times. He was sick all day Saturday and was super fussy and didn't want to each anything. He was coughing and sneezing and couldn't breathe, so it was a lot of fun. He was still sick on Sunday, but seemed to be a little better. Trevor and I went to the John Mayer concert Sunday night. I will admit that I was not the biggest fan of John Mayer, until I saw him in concert. He is an amazing guitarist and the show was really good. Trevor loved it!
