THe big O-N-E!

Tyler's first birthday was Wednesday October 19th. I could tell he wasn't feeling well that day and he'd been kinda sick the previous 2 days but was acting fine.  So the day went on as normal. We didn't have anythign big planned, since his party was going to be Saturday.  So i picked up some cupcakes at walmart the night before and we just hung around the house.  B had softball that night and the rangers were on, so he and I stayed home and waited for B.  He was super tired and kinda fussy so he was practically asleep when B came in.  we put him in the high chair and sang happy birthday to him and gave him his cupcake. He didn't really eat it since he was pretty tired so we gave him his milk and sat down on the couch to put him to sleep.  Not 5 minutes later he kinda coughed and gagged and i immediately put my hand to his mouth. Then he seemed fine and I said to B, I really thought he was gonna puke. He agreed.  And we kinda relaxed...but not for 15 seconds, because then he hurled all over me and himself. He was so upset and rubbing it all in his face.  UGH no bueno. I can deal with sick kids but it was just pathetic.  So we got him cleaned up and to sleep so i could get in the shower. YUCK YUCK.  He slept all night and was sick and sleeping the next 2 days. Poor baby...what a birthday!

Cake Smash!

I really wanted to do a cake smash with tyler. So after we got home from the pumpkin patch, we set up a quick little photo shoot in our backyard.  I was semi pleased with how they came out, not bad for something I just threw together.  Here's a couple of my faves:

Pumpkin patch

I've been so busy lately between tyler's party, being pregnant, having 2 kids to take care of, and other stuff i've not udated with all we've been doing, so i'll probably have a few new posts today so as not to overload everyone. 

First up...The Pumpkin Patch.  On Sunday Oct 16th we took Tyler, Hudson and Delaney to the pumpkin patch in flower mound.  This was my first trip too, and it was lots of fun. Can't wait for next year.  We saw little animals at a tiny petting zoo, went on a hayride, picked out some mini pumpkins and found pumpkins bigger than him!  Here's a few pics of the fun he had!!

Sunday we made our family trip to the State Fair of Texas.  This is its 125th anniversary, and we had such a good time.  We didn't get to go last year b/c Brian was afraid i'd give birth in Fair Park, so we had to go this year.  Two years ago we got rained on...and wouldn't you know this was the one weekend it decided to rain again.  We weren't sure if we were crazy for going the day after the OU/TX game, but it turned out to be a good day outside of a little rain.  We went to the petting zoo, ate lots of fried food and got to see Thompson Square play!  The buffalo chicken flapjack on a stick was amazing, probably some of the best fair food ever.  I was psyched about the fried pineapple upside down cake, but it was somewhat disappointing.  Despite being exhausted, tyler was really very good and I'm looking forward to taking both kids next year. B says that isn't happening but right now he's not calling those shots.

Here's a few pics:

birthday party

Tyler's birthday is in 2 weeks!! This means his part is in 17 days. I'm not all that stressed about him being 1, and I'm not all that stressed about having his party, but i do have a LOT to for it. This weekend i need to go buy card stock for my mom to cut out all of the things for the decorations. I've put Maggie on cupcakes. I was originally going to order them but have decided we can make them just the long as i don't have to do it.  I need to order balloons next week, get the pictures for his birthday banner, and get all of the food purchased!! I've been planning this party for at least 6 weeks now so i'm ready for it to be here! :)  I'm so excited my baby will be one.  Here's a few pics of inspiration from pinterest:

I am so proud

Right now i'm sitting here on the couch both laughing and trying not to cry at my son. He just took a package of wipes and took about half of them out. He ripped them out one by one and put them in a pile. The he closed the package, opened it and tried stuffing a few of them back in.  He is currently walking around wipes in one hand, the other trying madly to stuff them in the package.  He warms my heart!!

Who's the boss?

This conversation JUST happened:

Me: Tyler, is mommy the boss?

Tyler: nya nya (i'll take that as a no)

Me: Tyler, is daddy the boss?

Tyler: (nodding his head yes) YAHHHEEEEEEEE
