A Boy and His Hat

Teagan has really been into hats lately. When he's in our room he always goes to Ryan's tin of hats and picks one out to walk around with. Well, I was in his room pulling clothes to pack when he found this cowboy hat that he had got almost a year ago at his cousins birthday party. He said "Hat" pulled it out and has been playing with it ever since.

This picture also shows his other thing he loves to do...sit on the register while the air is on!

Fishing for Colors

I was looking at Teagan's toys the other day and realized that he didn't really have anything that taught colors. So my crafty/teacher instinct kicked in and I came up with a cute game. Ryan loves to fish so I thought it only fitting to make Teagan his own fishing pole and fish.

There is two of each color so I can fish for a color then Teagan can go fishing for the same one. The other fun thing about this game is that I had all the materials for it already at home except for the dowel rods and the magnets!

Five Years and Counting

Yesterday Ryan and I celebrated our 5 year Anniversary. We've been through a lot in the last 5 years, definitely had our share of ups and downs. God has been with us the whole time and so we were able to celebrate yesterday with joy and more love for each other than when we started our journey together!
To celebrate the day I had suggested a restaurant that I had gone to with some friends. It's called Bamboo (Asian style food) and I thought Ryan would enjoy it. Ryan was so cute and to go with the Asian theme he surprised me and took me to a place called Anderson Japanese Gardens. It is a calm and serene garden surrounding a couple of ponds and a few little waterfalls. We were a little sad because we missed a lot of the plants blooming but it was nice to be able to enjoy some of God's creation Asian style! :)

11 months

Teagan turned 11 months today! I thought this picture would be so cute on our porch with my little wooden bench, but Teagan would not smile for anything. I can't blame him though, I think he's trying to cut more than one tooth right now. He's been very cranky and clingy. In this last month he has gotten another tooth so he's up to 7! He hasn't tried walking by himself yet. He cruises around the furniture and will walk behind a push toy but as soon as we stand him up and let go he sits on his bum! He's starting to sign more now...he will sign "please", "milk", and sometimes "more". This boy loves to eat too. If he sees his snack container or we put him in a high chair or he just sees food that he knows he generally eats he will start freaking out. We are truly shocked about the amount of food he will eat in one sitting. He also loves being outside. When we're not outside he will stand at the window a lot of the time watching the cars go by and saying "vroom," I can't believe that in a month he'll be one! He's such a big boy!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone! I know I'm a day late but we had a very busy day yesterday. Although it was busy it was also relaxing and fun. Teagan opened his Easter Basket from us after he got up from his morning nap. He went straight for his little Curious George. He has a big one but because he loved that one so much we decided to get him a little one that he can take with him on trips.
We went to Grammy lunch at my Aunt Merna's (which is something we do almost every Sunday) and we of course had a delicious meal! I don't think Aunt Merna has ever made a bad meal. After lunch the dads hid eggs filled with goodies while the big kids played downstairs. We had so many eggs this year that they started to just toss them around the yard. I wish I would've gotten a picture of it...Ryan was bowling with his! Teagan had his own little section of the yard to look for eggs. He loved crawling around and then shaking the eggs he found.

That evening we went over to Ryan's parents for Easter Supper and another little egg hunt for Teagan and his cousin Addisyn.

10 Months

Here he is...my 10 month old boy! He is so funny these days. He crawls around the house looking for us. We can hear him crawl from room to room then stop and say "Ahh" and if we don't answer he goes to the next room. He has six teeth now. Three on the top and three on the bottom. He eats anything we give him and lots of it!

9 Months

9 months 19 lbs 14 oz 30 in long

Teagan turned 9 months yesterday. It's hard to imagine that in three months he'll be one! It's starting to hit me that he's not really a baby anymore. He's crawling all over the place and pulling up to things. He definitely has a mind of his own and doesn't mind sharing it. He says "da da" and when asked what a cow says he sticks his bottom lip out and says "boo". He loves to eat anything we give him and has started to eat quite a bit of "big people food". He now has a cheesy grin when he sees the light on the camera and it is just too cute!

Happy Valentines Day!

I know this is a few days late but I haven't been feeling well so better late than never right! Anyway...I think this was my best Valentines day ever!
Here are the events of the day:
*I got to sleep in a little while Ryan fed Teagan breakfast and then made us some waffles.
*We went to some local Antique shops, we didn't find anything we had to buy but they were all very festive for the day. One of them was even having a cake walk! Every so often they would say a booth number and if you were in that booth you got to pick a cake. They liked Teagan so they told us to go into a booth and then called our name!
*We stopped by McDonald's for lunch.
*I got to take a 2 hour nap and while I was napping Ryan picked up around the house and cleaned our bathroom (more of why later).
*After naps I was banned from the kitchen while Ryan made us dinner...T-bone steaks, sauteed portabella's, baked potatoes, broccoli with cheese sauce, garlic bread, and a salad. The three of us ate by candle lite which Teagan didn't seem to mind eating in the semi-dark. There were flowers, candles, and chocolates for our table decor!
*After Teagan went to bed I found out why Ryan had cleaned the bathroom...it was so I could relax and take a bath. He had candles lite, a warm drink, and some music all set up. I like to take baths but never get to because the tub has to be cleaned before I will do it and when I clean the bathrooms I usually don't have time to take a bath afterwards. So this was a very nice surprise!

All in all I felt very loved and special that day! Thanks again honey you are the best!

I wish I would've taken more pictures of my favorite parts of the day but here are a few of Teagan's first Valentines Day!

These are the Valentines Teagan gave to his friends...Dum-Dum flowers for the girls and candy and paper airplanes for the boys.

We got him a heart balloon and his cousin Addisyn got him a Monkey balloon. He likes to look at them but is unsure of playing with them!

Opening his card from us.

8 Months

Teagan is 8 months now!! It is now time to put away the cherishables because he is on the move and into everything! He is saying a few words "la la, da da, ba ba" and has started to wave goodbye on occasion!
