Tyler turns 1!!
So, I know its a little late but wanted to post an update on my (not so little) baby boy turning 1 year old! We had such a jam-packed weekend!
Saturday was his birthday, which we spent the day running some last minute errands for his birthday party on Sunday. We took Ty to a pumpkin patch and animal farm that afternoon. We got a couple of cute pictures at the pumpkin patch but he didn't seem too enthused with the animals. He was getting sleepy and cranky. They had a corn maze as well but didn't go through since he was getting cranky didn't seem too interested.
Sunday began with him being dedicated at church (not a baptism but just a public confirmation that we as parents will dedicate ourselves to raising Tyler up with love and Christian values), and then the party afterwards with family and a few close friends. To Troy and me, the dedication was very special since Tyler was such a special and much prayed for gift.
The party was Mickey Mouse themed (of course) and everything went well. He got a lot of cute toys and clothes. One very fun one that Ty just loves is his new Elmo (the Elmo Live doll) that talks and sings, and moves! My mom made him a cake to dig into, which he loved... even got some in his ear, which I found Monday morning. Priceless moment!!
Some milestones with turning 1:
(1.) He has now switched from the bottle to a sippy cup
(2.) He is now drinking whole milk, instead of formula
(3.) He now sits frontwards in his car seat (and loves looking around)
and most recent (4) he now can scoot out of his walker by himself!! (I found this one out this morning!!)
Here's some other cute photos.

Wow, it's October!!
Time does fly when you're having fun. It's October and I haven't been on here in so long! Fall is in the air, it's starting to cool of here (just a bit) and I am preparing for a 1 year olds birthday party. HOLY COW, TYLER'S TURNING 1!!!! My, has this been an interesting year!
Everytime I had inspiration to ramble, I got distracted by my dear, sweet baby boy.
He's getting so big - and is definately ALL BOY! He's weighing about 30 lbs now but we'll get a more accurate weight when we go to his 1 year checkup just after his birthday. He's been Mr. Activity lately and is SO close to walking. He does walk around the coffee table and has a little moving piano that he walks with - but only a few steps. He's into everything now, and knows when he's not suppose to go somewhere. He'll stop, turn around, give me that cute little angel smile and giggle before I go and direct him towards his play area. He's a little monkey and loves to climb on anything/everything around the house. He's nearly crawled out of his walker a few times.
Oh boy, will I have my hands full when he does begin to walk.
Just a few more weeks til that wonderful day - he turns one, and turns mommy & daddy into crazy parents. :-) We're also having him dedicated at church on the 19th , which will be the official start for Troy and I starting his path toward knowing Jesus and prayerfully leading him toward a relationship with God!
Here's a few pictures, I need to download the rest from my camera. Bathtime is beginning to be such fun with him. He loves the water. He was playing in Auntie Trina's chair when we went to take care of some legal paperwork before I trip to D.C.
BTW - Congrats to my dearest friend Jennifer in marrying her wonderful new husband, Mike. I was in the wedding in Arlington, VA (she got ME to wear a dress!!). It was fun to go back to DC again after a few years, and seeing (almost) everyone.

Can you believe it’s September already??
We’re finishing up on the 2nd week of school and it’s been mere chaos around campus.
I nearly got into 2 accidents the first day! Partly because of the idiotic round-about that some genius designer thought up for the intersection of Barstow and Chestnut. It’s a heavy traffic area for those coming onto campus, and instead of improving the traffic flow, it actually has backed things up even more for those on Chestnut trying to cross Barstow. It’s been a traffic nightmare!
But I digress…..
The beginning of September also means that we’ll be heading to D.C. soon for my dear friend, Jennifer’s wedding. I’m excited about going but also dreading it too because we’re leaving our little Tyler (aka Ty-Ty) home with grandma & grandpa (who themselves will be returning soon from 3 weeks in Europe –MUST BE NICE!!). Besides visiting good friends, being in the wedding and being in D.C. in the Fall (instead of the dead heat of summer), it’ll be some good time away for me and Troy.
The most recent news from me is that I am an official owner of the iPhone! Yes, that’s right, I’m crossed over to the ‘dark side’ as some people put it. Although I love it so far… now that I’m starting to get a handle on it. It’s so much fun once you get used to it. I can now get full internet sites on my phone, as well as check my Facebook page. J Yes, I do have to confess….
“My name is Sheryl, and I’m a Facebook addict.” J But most of you already know that. J

My, how time flies
Wow, I've been off here for a LONG time!
There's been a lot going on and Tyler's growing like a weed. He's now crawling, pulling himself up and so close to walking. He's keeping us on our toes and very busy.
Like most people, I spend most of my time of those blasted networking sites! More-so on Facebook (yes, I'm an addict and I know it), not so much on Myspace anymore.
You can catch me on there if you want to know what's going on with us and see recent photos of the baby-boy, as he grows into the cute little man he is now.
Those that I know that look at this site, I've already been keeping in contact more via Facebook. If you're not on it yet, it's a great site without having all the 'junk' and young fan-base as Myspace.
Blessings to all of you!!

It's been extremely HOT here in the Valley lately. I so wish I could be on a beach somewhere, enjoying a cool coastal breeze and soaking up the sun the right way!!
