This week John and I took off of work because Tyler's babysitter was in Vegas. However we got lucky and had a friend offer to watch him so we could do projects around the house. Our bedroom is now painted, as is our bathroom. The cable and Internet wire is buried, fish tanks are clean, lawn is mowed and trimmed, cars washed and waxed. We even had time to go to his parent's pool with Tyler. And we also took a day and drove to Chicago to go to the Museum of Science and Industry. Below are a few pictures from our week.

Our new bedroom color and bedspread. I even put the words Sweet Dreams on the wall behind the bed.

New Videos

4 months

We had Tyler's 4 month check up today. He did a great job and was laughing with me for quite a while before the doctor came in. He was laughing so loud that the doctor said he could hear him down the hall. He weighs 18 lbs and 9 oz. He is 26.5 inches long. He is the 95 percentile for his age for height and 97 percentile for weight. We certainly have a big boy He is the size of a 6 month old. He is now rolling over from tummy to back, laughing a lot, cooing more, trying to crawl, sleeping all night long and eating rice cereal. Which isn't the best tasting thing Hope you all are having a good start to the summer!

We had a great weekend, and it was so beautiful out! Saturday we woke up and went garage sale-ing, not finding a lot but we had fun. We got a few outfits for Tyler and his Halloween costume (John's mom bought it). I was looking for a pull behind carrier for our bikes so we could take Tyler with us, no such luck. It was so sunny outside that and Tyler was squinting so John put his sunglasses on Tyler, below is that picture. We then came back home to drain the water bed so our new bed could be delivered and set up. I slept like a baby, love it! Sunday we went to church, relaxed, got groceries, cleaned the fish tank and did laundry. My mom is coming this weekend and that should be a blast! She hasn't witnessed Tyler rolling over yet, so that will be neat. I took Tyler to the babysitters this morning, and I absolutely love her! She went and bought a new toy for him to enjoy, she is such a sweetheart!

Sitting Up

Tyler is now trying to sit up when he is in a reclining position. After he finished his bottle the other day he sat up as much as he could and I was so shocked. He is growing up too fast! He tries to get out of his car seat too, even when he is strapped in, he gets frustrated by those restraints. It is too cute!
