Seven Years and Counting

June 26, 2004

To my Hubs-

Happy SEVEN year anniversary! I remember thinking on our wedding day that life couldn't get any better than this... Thank you for proving me wrong every single day.

Happy Father's Day

Dear Daddy,

We wanted to wish you a Happy Father's Day! You are the BEST daddy in the whole, wide world. (Mommy says so, too, and you know she is always right)!


MJ and Ty

I love you, daddy!

I do, too!

Our very own work of art - just for you

"Best Dad Ever" - we gave you a medal :)

To our dads ("Grandpa" and "Granddad") - you have both been inspirations to us, and we are thankful every day that you are such a big part of our lives. We hope you have a wonderful Father's Day.

This hotel bed is comfy

The Georgia Beer Wholesalers Association had their annual meeting in Savannah this weekend, so the boys and I decided to tag along for a few days of fun in the sun.

The first day, we cruised around on the boat. MJ caught a jellyfish and was brave enough to hold it!

Mommy, this jellyfish feels funny

Ty had a great time - there was a double bed on the boat, so he was able to take a good afternoon nap.

We spent the majority of the second day at the hotel pool. MJ and Ty both love the water - by the end of the day, they were turning into prunes!

Check out these water spouts!

The hotel was just across the river from River Street, so we were able to take quick ferry rides over to enjoy the great shops and restaurants. Ofcourse, we had to make a special stop at the famous River Street Sweets -- the pralines are unbelievable.

I am not sharing this with anyone!

Steve had to stay a few days for meetings, so MJ, Ty and I left on Monday. Yes, that means I had to drive 4+ hours alone with the boys. I was a little worried that I was going to have to stop a million times, but they both did great (and we made it home with only 2 stops!) - YAY!

Ty at 8 Months- Clapping and (almost) Crawling!

I'm thinking about it, mommy

-You haven't quite figured out how to crawl yet, but you are VERY close.

I'm really thinking about it :)

-You love to be outside

-You like your exersaucer, jumperoo, and teething toys

-You enjoy sitting on the floor surrounded by toys so you can pick them up (and put them one by one in your mouth)

-You have 4 teeth

-You are in stage 3 diapers

-You eat stage 2 baby foods, but your favorites are Ms. Lisa's homemade mixtures - blueberry/pear, mango/strawberry and sweet potatoes with anything

-You eat 5-6 jars of baby food and 24-30 ounces of formula daily

-You sleep 11-12 hours each night and take 2 (1.5-2 hour) naps during the day

-You learned how to clap a few weeks ago, and you LOVE to play pat-a-cake

-Your brother continues to be a ladies man

-You love your daddy

-You have a blast splashing MJ in the bath every night

-You are THE happiest, sweetest baby. I love you, Ty Ty.
