The Big T. Turns ONE

March 20th, 2009, Tyson joined our family and we realized within a matter of seconds what a blessing he is. March 20th, 2010 he turned the big One.

One year.

One year of diapers. One year of kisses. One year of pure happiness. Yes, there were of course challenging times with lack of sleep, going through teething, and his first sickness. But overall, it has been the best year by far.

And so, to celebrate his first birthday, we of course threw Mr. T a bash to remember complete with family, friends, balloons, and of course CAKE.

The hit of the party was Ty chowing down. He started out with a little class and tasted the cake with just one tiny finger.

But before long...

He took it down like a champ!

The cake was a hit with everyone...

And Tyson was definitely one Happy Little Boy!

And here are some more pictures from the good times:

So Hard To Say Goodbye...To Yesterday

Thanks to this week's, Song on the Blog: BoysIIMen - Goodbye, I can now look at pictures of Ty's little and TINY clothes that he once wore, and bring on the waterworks at the same time as I reminisce. So yes...the tears were rollin when I went through all of his clothes to pass along to Ty's future BFFs. Here's some of my favorites.

Remember these:

Tyson thought it would be fun to put on some of his oldies, which now resemble a swim cap and a tight muscle shirt. He liked how they showed off his pipes.

Just Another Day....

Of Pure Cuteness. Seriously, I never thought that after 11 months (almost 12!!), I would still wake up every day, look at Ty, and think, "Oh my goodness, you are so freaking cute!!" I kind of thought it would be like when you get a puppy. You love the puppy so much, can't get enough, but then one day she's just the dog in the corner, the dog eating the food off the kitchen floor, or the dog that constantly licks your son's face. I suppose some day, Tyson will become "just the dog"...maybe when he's 13, right? But either way, I am soaking it all in and loving every minute of it.

ps...and check out those legs!! Boy loves to eat ;)

Memories Made in Estes

At the beginning of the year, we were lucky enough to get together with Ryan's Family up at the beautiful YMCA of the Rockies, in Estes Park. The rest of the fam has spent many weekends up in the hills, but this was my second and Ty's first. We stayed in a gorgeous cabin and just had a great time relaxing, visiting, playing games, and just being a family. Thanks Diane for such a great weekend and for wonderful memories.
