23 Months!

Tyler will turn 2 in less than a month! I can hardly believe it, but it is so much fun watching him grow into a toddler. He is doing great, but is definitely showing more and more signs of those terrible twos! He has definitely mastered the temper tantrum and loves to try to manipulate us by throwing them. But Tyler is also a sweet boy and is learning tons of new things. His vocabulary is really growing and he is starting to put two and three words together. Here are some things I want to remember about Tyler at 23 months:

  • He LOVES Carrots! Everytime I open the refrigerator he is right there opening the veggie drawer asking for a carrot!
  • He is deathly afraid of the vacuum cleaner. Just at the mere mention of a vacuum cleaner and he is frozen in place.
  • He loves working his ABC puzzle and is quickly learning all of his letters.
  • He loves his friends! He is always asking to go see Abby, Mallie, and Tucker.
  • Everything is "MINE"! This drives me crazy!
  • He is so unbelievably smart! He is very good with directions. He starts fussing when we turn left off of our street because Abby, Mallie, and Tucker's house is to the right. He also starts fussing when we turn left out of our neighborhood because the park we like to play at is to the right. He also starts fussing when we pass a certain neighborhood because his friend Sam lives there and he likes to go play with him. It really cracks me up that he is so aware of where everything is.
  • He continues to love playing outside and playing in the dirt and mud!
  • He loves ELMO! In fact his second birthday party will be a Sesame Street theme!

Smiling for the camera!


We are getting a patio poured in the backyard and they brought a truck load of dirt yesterday. We had to immediately go outside to play in the mound of dirt! Here he is showing Mama his dirt.

More DIRT!!!

What great pictures and details about Tyler at 23 months! He's such a character! Sounds like he did have a great time at the rodeo! Sorry you didn't get to have a babysitter for Cooper...
