Turkey Trot!

It doesn't get any more classic than the Turkey Trot. And Tate seems to be born for it. Hopefully he likes doing it forever, cause Donny isn't going to stop 'til Tate's in college.

Oh, and in case you were wondering...the thing dangling from Tate's hip is his pouch of marbles which he likes to keep handy at all times.

Embrace the Moments

Tate rarely sits still and even more rare than that, he never cuddles. When he does I take full advantage of it. My baby is getting so big he hardly fits on my lap anymore. I would have held him all night like this if he would have let me. Unlike Tate I'm a cuddler and I live for moments like these. At one point I started to tickle his back and he slapped my hand away.....he's got limits! Don't cross the line!

Don't let this angelic face fool you.... Tonight he took a running start and kicked me right in the shin and then ran off laughing. Embrace the moments folks.....embrace the moments.

Haircuts and Time Out

19 months old and he just got his first haircut! He did so great. Didn't cry or wasn't even scared of the clippers. He was dancing and singing in the tub while the little fluffs of soft hair floated down to his toes. So cute!

So Tate is.....well let's just say he goes to the beat of his own drum. And well his drum is always beating opposite to mine. So I've been trying to figure out what will work for him as punishment or consequences. I've been trying time out.....and as you can see he enjoys it. In fact when the timer goes off he doesn't want to get down.

Puddin

Tate and I had fun today getting our hands dirty in some pudding. He didn't know what to think at first but after the first taste he was shoveling it in! He even helped make it. He poured the milk and did some of the stirring. He's getting so grown up.

Please excuse his messy hair. He had just gotten up from his nap. I think a first haircut is in his near future!

I love when our eyes meet
across the messy,
toy-filled living room,
and we smile at each other
like we're the luckiest couple
in the world.........

Because we are.

You light up my life

For Christmas I asked Tate's Grandad to make him a light table. I had been wanting one and was looking online for one and they were around $300! I couldn't believe they were so expensive. So I asked my Dad if he could make one, and of course he could. He knocked it out in a couple of hours no problem. I was so happy! They brought it down to Utah and we brought it home in a suitcase. I'm so glad it fit! Tate has so much fun with it. He always wants it plugged in when he's playing in his room. Thanks Grandad! You are the greatest!

That's Love

Tate has been really attached lately. He is constantly following me around and wanting to be held, and pulling me by the hand to show me things. When I'm trying to cook he gets in between me and the cabinets and tries to push me away from doing anything else but paying attention to him. My favorite thing he's been doing lately is every time I go into the bathroom and shut the door, I know he's going to come a knockin. It's goes like this..........knock knock......mom, mom..............knock knock...........mom. Then he lays on the floor and puts his fingers under the door and wiggles them, all the time still saying mom. That's real love folks. When you can't even go to the bathroom without being missed.
