On the Move!!!

After two months of scooting, Tyler finally decided he would start crawling! He is more active than ever before. Some of his favorite activities include pulling up on anything and everything he can find, playing peekabo behind the ottoman, and ripping up magazines and paper and then throwing a fit when mama takes it away from him. He has also started waving, but it is very random and he doesn't really do it as a response yet.

He is finally feeling better after all of these stupid ear infections. I feel like keeping him in our house during flu season so he won't get sick again. Tyler is getting more fun everyday, but is also showing signs of the temper tantrums to come. :(

Tyler loves, loves, loves his Daddy! If Dad is in the room, Tyler wants to be with him. Today he bumped his head and I tried to console him, but NO, Tyler wanted his Daddy. The minute Travis took him the crying stopped. I guess he is going to totally be a Daddy's boy.

Well, I would post some pictures but our digital camera broke over the holiday. Maybe Santa will hook me up with a new camera.

On the Road Again



Charlie and Kelsey are on the road as we speak. They are headed to Virginia to start their new life there. So last night the Houston Johnson clan (Ross and Kim, Katy and Ryan, Aunt Sherry) all said goodbye to the Stockers. We had a great time and of course ate a lot! That's what we do best. Here are a couple of pictures from last night.

Bring it On!

Bring on the bidding war that is! In the past week we have had two different families come look at the house and love it. They both want to make offers on the house, but want to get some nibbles on their existing houses first. We will wait and see, but we are hoping for a bidding war! Just kidding, we are just excited that people have come through and like it so much. We will keep you posted.

Playing the Guitar


Tyler loves listening to Travis play the guitar. It always calms him down when he is fussy. He used to just listen to Travis play, but now he wants in on the action!

Glimpse of the Future

Today while playing with Tyler, I saw a glimpse of the future. Tyler was in our bedroom playing with the two doors that lead to our bathroom. He figured out quickly that he could open one of the doors. So he continued to push on it until it was completely open. Then he decided that he would push the other one open, and he continued to push it until it was completely open. He continues to push on it but nothing was happening because the door was against the door stop. He proceeds to throw a big crying fit. I'm wondering what in the world he is crying about. So I picked him up and he continued to cry. I put him down and closed the door...the crying stopped. He reached for the door to open it up again. We did this several times and each time the door was against the door stop and wouldn't open any further the crying resumed. In conclusion, I think Tyler acquired some of his mama's personality traits...stubborn, determined, and throwing tempertantrums! I'm not so sure this is a good thing. He was not happy today when things didn't go his way. I guess I'm just getting a little taste of my own medicine. Sorry Mom and Dad!

When is Daddy getting home?



Yesterday evening Tyler crawled to the french doors in the living room and pulled up to his knees and stayed there for about 20 minutes looking out the door. It was if he knew it was about time for Daddy to be home and he was anxiously awaiting his arrival. Tyler gets so excited when Daddy comes home. He loves playing with him at night before bed.

Tyler will be 7 months tomorrow! That is so hard for me to believe. He is getting more and more curious and active all the time. His new favorite activity is pulling up on anything he can find. He just pulls up to his knees, but we have occasionally seen him pull up to a standing position. I'll take some 7 month pictures and try and post them tomorrow.
