16 months old!

Okay, so this post is almost a week late.  Sorry!  Tyler turned 16 months old last Friday (1-14-11).  We started off the morning with a trip to Children's Hospital for a routine visit to the eye doctor for Tyler.  They said his vision is still doing great even with the hemangioma on his eye lid.  We go back in May for another brain scan to check vision for a little man and a check up with one of the leading pediatric ophthalmologist in the country.  We are so blessed to have such great doctors so close.  For those of you who don't know the details of Tyler's eye - so far it really has not been a big deal.  Seems to be more cosmetic than anything and the hope of the dermatologist, ophthalmologist and us is that it will go away on it's own soon.  Until then, we will continue to be proactive and make sure his vision is not at all affected by the annoying little bump (looks like a sty on his upper eye lid).

Happy 16 month birthday, Tyler!  Look how big he is getting.  He just climbs up in his chair, smiles for the camera and gets down to continue playing. 

After lots of play time, shooting some "bassetball" (basketball) and reading lots of "bookas" (books), we napped and prepared for a night out with Grandma and Grandpa watching high school basketball games at WHS.  We saw some really good games including cross-town rival, Borgia, who lost a close game in overtime.  Next up was the WHS game.  Tyler and I left shortly after half time to head to bed.  It was 8:30 and way past his normal bedtime.  He did have a good time taking over GG's (my Grandma Wood) seat while she was up at half time.

Tyler thinking he is hot stuff in GG's seat. 

Other fun things we are doing recently include:

1. Getting the milk out by himself (he wants to do everything by himself)
2. Closing the door when ever we leave a room (sometimes even before I can get out!)
3. Making animal noises for cow ("moooo"), sheep ("baa"), goat ("baa") and rooster ("cock doodle do" or often just "cock" which gets a laugh and he loves it!)  We have been singing a lot of Old McDonald had a Farm so the past several days every animal simply says "ee i ee i ee i ee i"  You are thinking it only has 2 ee i's but not for Tyler - it just keeps going.  Pretty funny stuff.  I will have to get a video soon. 

Anyway, we are having so much fun watching and listening to our favorite little man learn new words daily.  I will try to document many of them in the blog for my own memory lane later on and often for a bit of humor.
