Tyson and Quinn's Corner


This is our life with our little man, born May 2009 and our sweet daughter, born May 2011.

16 and 17 months

It's hard to believe I've gone over a month without a blog post. Sorry family and friends!

Dear Tyson-

You just turned 17 months old and you've changed so much in the past 2 months. You have finally started watching the television. Your favorite shows so far seem to be football (any game, it doesn't matter) and the Wheel of Fortune. Your Great Grandma B sure is proud of that one! Whenever you see football or the Wheel, you instantly start clapping. You even know what to do when someone yells "touchdown!".

When it comes to understanding us and talking, we are constantly amazed by just how much you understand. You have started saying so many more words these past two months. I don't know if we're at the word explosion everyone talks about yet, but you can say so much and most of it is decipherable. You still say Daddy all the time, but you say Mama or Mum with some regularity too. Down, done, boom, uh-oh, whoa, den (again) are all words we can understand. You try to say dog (da), milk (ma) and I think you are trying to say up, but I'm not quite sure.

You know how to give big hugs and kisses, high fives and fist bumps. Although times can be difficult with temper tantrums, Mama and Daddy adore being around you. Your eating habits are pretty much the same and I wish they would get better. We keep trying to get you eat different foods and you keep refusing. Right now, some of your favorite foods are grapes and canned peaches.

Books have always been a favorite of yours, but recently they have become an obsession. We read the same books over and over again because you love them so much. Everytime you want to hear a book again, you hand it to us and we ask again? and you tell us den! I think the books are just making you that much smarter. You can point to many of your major body parts when we ask. You know nose, eyes, ears, mouth, teeth, head, belly, toes and feet.
I think sometime over the last few months you have turned into more of a little boy and less of a baby. You even decided to give up your pacifier on your own. Mama is thrilled to not have to wean you from it, but it sure makes naptime a little more complicated. You just can't seem to get calmed down for your nap and the paci certainly helped!

We just love watching you learn and grow everyday. Love, Mama and Daddy
