I am a terrible mother! Not really. Just a terrible blogger. But mostly because being a mommy is hard! It's the single most wonderful thing I've ever done in my entire life! But that little stinker is all over the place and I don't have a whole lot of time to just sit down and write. So... I'm gonna start where I am and maybe get the last three month on here eventually! I so want to cuz there are lots of good stories but I'm afraid if I keep back tracking that I'll never get to the current stuff. So... 

My baby is 6 months old!!! Holy hannah. I can't believe it. Every time he gets another another month older I kinda freak out feeling like it was just yesterday that he was still kicking me from the inside instead of in the back at 2 am. But alas, he's all grown up! 

Baby Ty weighed 16 lbs 8 oz  and was 27 inches long at his 6 month appointment. Getting so big! He's wearing size three diapers and is in mostly 9 month clothes. 

Are you as in love with this face as much as I am?!

He is the biggest laugher and smiler and is SO close to being mobile! He's getting up on his hands and knees and even his feet downward dog style. It's so stinkin cute!

He hasn't figured out the whole "move the hands" part of crawling so he's landed on his face a number of times lately. He's getting tough tho! 

Little bum in the air!! :D

Lately we've been blocking him in on the bed. He rolls around everywhere trying to get stuff but he can't quite go straight forward. haha. So we have to put all the pillows around the edge. (He can't quite roll over them yet!) It's actually funny cuz sometimes he rolls towards something and he misjudges the angle and still can't reach it so he gets mad. haha. Then sometimes he falls asleep on the bed. It's so cute!

The other day he was rolling around on his little play mat thing and flipped it right over. :)

My other favorite thing he's doing lately is grabbing his feet. He discovered them a while ago but now he just won't let them go. haha. LOVE!

** heart eyes **

This was baby's first time in the grocery cart!!! It's so stinkin cute. I hate putting the car seat in the cart cuz I'm too short and I can't see over it so I almost run over old ladies every time I walk into the store. But now I don't have to do that! YAY!

** more heart eyes! **

Our biggest struggle lately is that he only wants to sleep with yours truly. (and by that I mean me!!) It's awesome cuz I love nothing more than to snuggle him but I'd really like a chance to snuggle my other favorite guy. (and by that I mean my hubby!) He has been through lots of different sleep cycles but since we were back east for Christmas, he hasn't wanted to sleep anywhere but with me. The last couple nights he's done pretty well sleeping in bed but I still have to get up a few times. We'll get there though. :)

How could you not love this tho? Justin is trying hard to convince me that he needs to sleep in his own bed. And he's right!! But then he snuggles with me and I just can't do it. :( But then he cries at 12:30 and 2:30 and 2:45 and 4 and then I think how nice it would be to sleep all night. I have hope but until it happens I will enjoy waking up to this face.

It's true dad. I'm sorry! ;) But sometimes he lets me read them and when he does, he loves them! His favorite lately is "Tu eres mi madre?" haha. His favorite Auntie Ali gave him "Are you my mother?" for Christmas and we read it in English and in Spanish. So fun! 

I don't have any pics of him with toys but he LOVES his toys lately. This is one of the blankets that his grandma gave him. He loves to chew on the little tabs! He now has so many toys I don't know what to do with them. He loves to chew on everything!

Everything except food! He loves his mega seat but doesn't love to eat anything except baby milks from mommy. However, the last week or so he's starting to love puffs and baby food. So far his favorite is bananas. :)

Other than eating, this is his next favorite thing to do in the seat. He actually looks a little creepy and contorted but also very cute and funny. He reaches for everything that's even remotely close to his chair and I know that eventually he's gonna fall out. I'm trying really hard to prevent that. :)

He also loves to chew on the seat. It's adorable. :)

Does that smile kill you?

I have to add how much fun Baby Ty is having with his dad. Justin LOVES his son and it makes me more happy that I thought I could ever be. Ty is so active and fun and talking and laughing and we all love it! 

Speaking of laughing... We had a little party the other day and found out how much baby Ty really loves Brody. We were throwing him a ball and every time he caught it Ty would laugh and laugh and so did we! 

Baby Ty is loving his cousins! Carter and Rush are so cute with him! Brookie still tries to strangle him when she hugs him but we're pretty sure it's cuz she loves him. 

Our favorite thing is Peyton and Ty! She is so different from him but the two of them are adorable. They love to grab each other's faces and roll on top of each other. The other day they were on the bed together and I looked down to see Ty smacking Peyton in the face. She gets this very sad face but doesn't cry till it's over and it's hilarious and sad. So I stopped him and she cried and then I got to snuggle with her. It all turned out ok. :)

So that's my sweetie! He's the joy of our lives and makes us all smile all day long. The growing up thing is bitter sweet cuz I really want him to stay little but watching him learn new things is so much fun. We couldn't be happier!

Next Step

I've been avoiding this post for a while now. In fact, a long time... I've been thinking about it since I wrote the post about our little grey circles that didn't make it. I like writing but the last few weeks have been kinda blah. I also think I've been a little hesitant because I've always wanted these posts to be super happy and chipper but that's not exactly how I feel. After the last post I did get a lot of really nice feedback, one in particular that made me feel extra good. My aunt is an incredible person and I love talking to her. She said to me that no matter how long those grey circles were my babies, they still were and I was allowed to grieve as much as I wanted. I think that kind of gave me permission to really cry and it made me feel a lot better. Thanks Kim. :) 

But now we're on to bigger and better things. I can't lie and say that I'm super excited about this transfer. I think I got WAY too excited for the last one/first one and it ma…

All we know is...

The results are in folks...

YES! We're pregnant!!!
There are simply not words to describe how I feel about this statement. One I've been wanting to make for what seems like forever. One I've heard from so many of my friends and family that made me want to cry. One that seemed impossible to make. And one I am finally able to say for myself. I can't even believe it.
We waited 2 LONG weeks to find out whether or not our little frozen circle would become our miracle. And when I say long, I mean long. Especially when I was supposed to start my period on Friday. Last Friday. So usually when you're trying to get pregnant, you wait till the day your period is supposed to start and you wait... If it doesn't come, you run to the store and buy that expensive little stick and awkwardly try to pee on it. (Maybe they aren't really expensive, but it kinda seems that way, right ladies??) 
Anyway, then you wait a few minutes and see what it says. I had one left over from the la…

Ty Turns 2!!

OMG He's 2. Where did the time go?!?!?!?!?!
I gotta say, he's prolly the best little toddler in the whole world. I can't believe he's mine and I thank Heaven every day for him and his sweet sweet spirit. So, let me show you a little of the last couple months I've had with this little stinker!

Ty got some golf clubs for his birthday and he LOVES them! He and daddy take them to the park and he lines them up and hits them like crazy. SO CUTE!

Basically Ty loves the park!!!

This next one is super random.. we were at scheel's looking for bike gloves for daddy so of course Ty had to ride a bike too, so mommy found him a helmet. MELT MY HEART!!!! hahahahaha. So so amazing. 

These were taken the day before his birthday! This little boy loves dirt and rocks so much, I swear if we could take out all the mud he's swallowed he would loose a few pounds. Which would be bad cuz he still only weights 27 pounds at his last check up. Holy cow this kid is little!!
