A dedication to Callaway

So it occurred to me. Every single post has been about The Ty Man. Mr. T. Baby Gapp. What ever happened to Callaway?? I can tell you what happened...low end of the totem pole!! I guess that is just what happens once the babe arrives. And so I thought I would dedicate a post just to Callaway. The Dup. (Yes, we call her The Dup, because at one point she wasn't quite a big dog, wasn't still a pup...she was a Dup)

So here's to you Dup:

Just the cutest little pup....ever

She LOVES wood and LOVES the water...
put them together, and its the best day ever

Soaking it up
She was by my side every day during Bed Rest

ALWAYS has a toy in her mouth
Look Karlyn...she even brushes her teeth!

She eats 2/3 of a pumpkin...

She loves all Holidays

And she just Loves to have a good time

And let's just face it...she is just pretty damn cool

But when it comes down to it...she was our first "baby"
So Callaway...thanks for always being there

Cheese Ball!!

I cannot believe it. This little man is 10 months old today!! Ten Months! TEN. I know I have said this three times now, but I really can't believe it. It is one of those things that has flown by so fast, but at the same time we cannot imagine our life with out him.

Mr. T really has quite the little personality these days. This is what I call his Cheese Ball face....because, well he's a cheese ball and I'm a huge dork. Pretty good match I must say. He is now babbling all over the place but no official words yet. Although Bapa claims he said his name months ago. The most popular noun for everything is Dada...and just about at any time he is in "pointing" mode.

Ty still eats like a champ. We went through a phase after a rough night of spinach and Ham & Pineapple (don't worry, came from two seperate jars)...and after gagging a few times on that he decided he wasn't too excited about this baby food. But we are back on track! Of course he is sometimes treated like the dog and given little table scraps here and there. But don't worry, we haven't moved him to the dog run just yet.

No full on crawling yet. Instead we get a kind of Army-pirate-dead-leg-crawl. Yes, that is what I have named the maneuver and working on getting a song named after it. Either way, I am putting my money on the steps coming first. He loves his walker, pulling himself up, and will soon be getting ready for the 400 hurdles.

The Gapp Christmas Recap

Well I must say that our first Christmas with Ty was filled with laughs, love, bows, and boxes. We spent much enjoyed time with family and we are just so grateful for it all. With all our immediate family in town, it makes it easy for us to spend time with everyone. Here are a few (ok ok....a lot) of pictures from our first Christmas as a family of three.
