Tyler is more fun now than ever! He conquered his first real sickness recently, although we still have to go back to check on his double ear infection. At his well-baby (not so well this time) checkup he measured 29 1/2 inches long (90th %ile) and 16 lbs 9 oz (5th %ile!) As such, we’ve been instructed to feed this kiddo whatever he wants, all day long. He also was prescribed an Epi-Pen…let’s hope we don’t have to walk that road. We know he’s allergic to coconut but that’s the only thing we are sure of for now. Recent mystery hives could be the antibiotics…or raspberries…or Sweet Cow…or waffle fries. Poor kid.
Yes, he still fits in the basket.
Thanks, Nana, for the dapper shirt.
Things Tyler likes to do: point at everything with his middle finger, stick his fingers in holes (screw holes on toys, the spout of his food pouches, your mouth/nose/ear), sit unattended, clap toys together, stack rings, and laugh.
Things Tyler does not like to do: nap, sleep through the night, and crawl.
Here is a darling video of Tyler’s first real bathtub experience with his cousins Ethan & Emma. He loved it! He learned how to splash…which you can see he now practices nightly in his pink tub on the kitchen island.
Grandma & Grandpa Holle came to visit from Tuscon over Grandma’s birthday. They were so excited to spend time with Tyler–they hadn’t seen him since his baptism when he was 10 days old! The weekend was even more exciting with the surprise visit of the Stumpfs from Lincoln, Nebraska…when we returned from the airport picking up Grandma & Grandpa, Aunt Laura & Uncle Andy and cousins Ethan and Emma were hiding in the living room. What a fun surprise!
Thanks for visiting, everyone! Hope you had a wonderful birthday, Shirley!
I just had (well, a few weeks ago) one of the best Spring Breaks ever. I got to spend TEN days in a row with Tyler. And Eric took some days off too, giving us some excellent quality time.
We went to Vail for two nights and saw lots of friends.
We went to Basalt for two nights for the First Annual Babyfest.
And best of all, Nana & Grandpa drove in from Ohio to spend the week with us Tyler! We dined out at Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar on the rooftop deck–the Colorado sunshine was a welcome change from a Cleveland winter and the burgers were OUTSTANDING.
We visited brewery numbers 31 and 32 for Tyler (Finkel & Garf and Sanitas).
We golfed, shopped, walked, and took Tyler to the park. We finally tried the raved-about Pizzeria Locale (delicious).
We celebrated Easter.
And we got very used to having two nannies available to tend to Tyler’s every move all week long! Tyler says he loves his Nana & Grandpa very much and can’t wait to see them again!
