Ted loves to read

Ted loves to "read". I hope he never loses his interest in books. Of course, I prefer him to stick with his board books because he can't reek havoc on them like the paper books so I keep board books separate from the rest of the books. 
But Ted always makes his way over to the bucket of picture books. His favorite is "Go, Dog, Go". Even if I move this book to the bottom of the pile, Ted will search through the books for it.

Happy Father's Day

Happy father's day! I am pretty proud of myself so far this year. I am the worst at getting people gifts but this year I have been pretty on top of it. Gifts are especially difficult with Tyler. His birthday, our anniversary and father's day all fall in the same week! Last year, since I had just had a baby, I did not do much for any of these occasions. This year I nailed all 3! Oh yeah!

Saturday night came and I did not have anything ready for Father's Day. Thanks to the glory of Pinterest, Ted and I were able to come up with a cute gift idea. The large dot is Ted's thumb and the small dot is Ted's pointer finger. 

He HATED me for making him do it. I attribute this to the fact that it was 9 PM by the time I had all the supplies ready to go. 

Anyway, Tyler is an awesome dad.

Ted came to his first Pug Gala this year woo hoo :) I entered him and Ruby into the costume competition. They went as Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox and got second place! 

Ted also got to be on a website collage for child car seat safety. Can you find him?  

I tried getting a cute picture of Ted and I have decided you need two people to catch Ted in a cute pose. I will get him all ready to go and by the time I put my camera up he is already walking away. 
He kept making this face which is super cute but not a very good smile face hahaha  
I decided this was the best shot 
Yesterday we went to our friend's house for a play date. We walked and Ted fell asleep right as we got to the house. I woke him up and he had a lot of fun. It was actually nice because afterwards he stayed awake the entire walk home so when we got home he took a very long nap.  

For Ted's birthday, Aunt Miranda sewed  him this really cute bear. He loves to wrestle it. 

After he was done wrestling he fell asleep on the floor, which is a first. 

Last weekend Tyler was feeling super sick. He came inside and just flopped onto the floor. Ted did his best to snuggle with daddy. He also crawled over and patty daddy on the head and climbed onto his back.

Ted Turns 1

Ted had his first birthday. I did not take any pictures during the party, mostly because I was to lazy and I hoped other people would take pictures and just send them to me... which they did. We just invited family over and had a BBQ. The most memorable part of the evening was Ted grabbing the fire in his candle while we sand happy birthday. I think my grabbing his hand super fast scared him more than anything the fire did to him. I have never seen a baby just reach out and grad the flame. What a pyro, he gets that from Tyler.

You can kind of tell from the picture that the cake was a bear. His birthday was bear theme. :) 

Here is a picture after the fire incident. Ted was crying until I gave him his cupcake, he was just great after that.
