Tyler: Week 51

June 8-June 14, 2011 (50w-50w6d old)

Tyler Update:

This week's update is short as Mama has been very busy planning a 1st birthday party for a very special little fella.  Tyler is very busy as well, he's like a little explorer discovering a whole new world.  He is into EVERYTHING!!!  This week he discovered he can open the DVD player.  I'm getting lots of practice with tough love.  I'm afraid he's going to think I changed his name to "no".  The Happiest Toddler on the Block has been ordered and I think I'll get Super Nanny's book while I'm at it!  =)

Teething progress

My little fish

I think I better start researching convertible car seats.  While he's a good bit under the 30 lb max weight requirement, I believe he's nearing the 30" max length requirement.  Tall and skinny like his daddy!  Anyone have a convertible car seat recommendation?

He loves to sweep, I can only hope he continues this love for many years to come!

Every time I try to get his picture, he runs right at me to snag the camera from me.  I have to start half way across the room so I can get the picture snapped before he gets to me.
I swear every time I turn around he has grown another inch!

Tyler getting lots of love from his cousins

I blinked and he's off to school

This week in video:

Video:  Tyler vacuuming
Tyler has always had an infatuation with the vacuum cleaner.  Just the other night, he was sound asleep on my lap nursing when Kerry started up the vacuum cleaner in the other room.  Tyler jumped up fully alert, hopped off the bed and ran to the vacuum.

Video:  Tyler laughs hysterically when we push his corn popper at super sonic speeds.


  1. We bought this one for Cameron after MUCH got higher ratings than some of the "Britax" seats....those are WAY over rated and this seat is extremely comfortable & lots of padding & great features!

  2. God, Jill, you have one seriously cute kid! ;-))

    Let something for you on my blog, if you have the time and are in the mood.

  3. LOL, Yes I am playing catch up on my blog too!! Every time I get a new one finished I blink and it is the end of another week and I am behind again!! I am trying my best to get caught up before their 1st birthday! Ty is so cute...I love the swim pictures, J&J loved the pool too! The "off to school" pictures are hysterical! Jake is a BIG GUY, takes after his Dad & Grandpa. So, we are on the hunt for a new convertible car seat too because he looks like a squished pumpkin in his seat! Let me know what you decide on. I just read that the new guideline they suggest is rear facing up to at least 30 pounds or 2 years old! So I will have to find one with a high rear facing weight limit. Can't wait to hear how is 1st birthday was! Meghan

  4. I'm a longtime reader (never commented though!) -- we are getting ready to purchase our 2nd Sunshine Kids carseat...We currently have the Radian that goes up to 80 pounds for our 3.5 year old and love it. We are looking to buy the next model up for our 6 month old, as it's a little "cushier". They both have gotten a ton of good reviews on the sites I've looked at. Anyway, just thought I'd throw it out there! :) I've enjoyed reading your weekly updates -- he's a cutie!


Thank you for your comment! Hugs, Kerry and Jill
