I don't have any photos of this, but it is seriously hilarious. We just discovered tonight that every time Alain burps, Ty laughs hysterically!! It is the cutest thing ever, and it just goes to show what kind of boys I have (all 4 of them ;)).
I can't believe Ty is already 3 months old. Sometimes it seems like he just barely was born, and other times it seems as though I've had him forever ;) Here are some things about Ty: -he loves to laugh and smile -he shrieks like a banshee when he's happy -bath time is a kickfest of joy -out of the three he's the only one who finds his thumb and sucks on it -already he likes to be entertained by the boys and is content to just sit and watch them -he hates (and has always hated) lying on his back -I'm guessing, but I'm pretty sure he weighs about 15 lbs. -some of his nicknames are Mousie (Cole started this one on his own), Chunkers, Bubsy, Ty Guy, and Chunky Monkey -he is still as feisty as ever -he has not made sleeping through the night a priority yet; I still get woken up every 3 hours like clockwork -even sleeping during the day is not his priority (lucky me!) -after months of loving the swing, and sleeping well in it, he now hates it!?! -he loves to, and I let him, sleep on my chest (this was not the case with the other two) -he is definitely the baby of the family because he is soooo spoiled (already) -everyone loves him! There's probably a gazillion other things that I could think of to say about our little Ty Guy, but I won't bore you all! We love him and are so grateful and thankful that Heavenly Father entrusted him to us. We love you, Ty!
Logan will be 11 in April. I can't believe my baby will be that old! He is in the 5th grade, and can't wait to go to middle school next year. He is still a great helper around the house, and his mommy really appreciates it! He has started to take on the big responsibility of babysitting his younger brothers. It is SO nice having a built in baby sitter, so thank you Logan! Logan still wants to be a pilot when he grows up. I don't know that that will ever change. He is still playing tennis here in ABQ, which his parents love. Logan is an excellent reader, loves Cub Scouts, and is an all-around happy boy.
Cole will be 5 in Febrary (where does the time go?). He is very excited to start going to mommy's preschool again. He, too, is a great helper (but only on his terms). He has learned to love to play with Ty, which often gets both of them in trouble. Rough-housing is their favorite, but only until someone gets hurt. Cole very much likes to play video games (thanks Uncle Michael), and excels beyone his years (this is not a compliment to his mother's parenting!). He also enjoys, tremendously, playing with Star Wars. As a middle child he is often ignored, but his booming voice makes sure everyone knows he's around :) He played his first season of soccer this last fall, and loved it! He is just starting his first season of basketball, and, shall we say is learning to love it. Cole is such a joyful addition to our family, and we love him dearly.
Ty, more than ever, is still feisty!! He even more so knows what he wants and, sadly, he usually gets it. The only problem is that he knows what he wants, but his parents don't always know what he wants. We've been working on his every-growing vocabulary. Saying that Ty loves Mickey Mouse is an understatement. He carries around his "mouse" and any other stuffed animal he can fit in his hands. He loves on them and kisses them all the time. Sometimes when Mom goes into check on him at night he'll kiss his mouse while he's sleeping. It's the cutest thing ever! Ty loves his older brothers, and loves that they dode on him. He is definitely a rough brute! Beating up on Cole is one of his favorite things to do. They both have battle wounds to prove it! He is now in 4T clothes (remember, he's not quite 2), but everyone think's he's older. When he throws fits in the store people look at us funny ;) Even though he's a handful, we love him and am glad he has joined the Rivard ranks.
I'm a closet sewer, crafter, blogger, and deal lover. I've been wanting to start up a blog dedicated to the things I "secretly" love and obsess over, and this blog is it! Even if no one ever reads it, it's still a pleasure of mine to get all of my creative energy out of me ;)
