Ty's 6th Month

Man, this has been the best month! So many changes, so much personality, so much JOY. Here's our little buddy in mommy's favorite pj's.





The largest compliment Tyrus recieves is the beauty in his eyes. They tell a story and capture hearts at first glance...

Ty added toe chewing to his resume, this month. So cute!
He has also become the ultimate affection-giver. He loves to cuddle and responds, often, with touch. He's constantly resting his tiny little hands on our lips and cheeks and hands.
This has been the biggest month for changes. Ty took his first shopping cart ride without a car seat...
...started eating food through his baby teether...
...became a jumping maniac in his jump-a-roo and doorjam jumper...

... and started using his high chair for feeding time.
Ty also became a professional roller. He literally rolls all over the house, in attempt to get whatever it is he's after. He's very interested in food and has started trying things off my plate - his palatte has become more sophisticated as I experimented with making all types of baby food. Ty actually enjoys food so much that when it's gone, he answers with screams - we have to keep a paci ready, to satisfy him!

His vowels are becoming more pronounced and he's a constant chatter box. He is so aware of the world around him and is interested in everything - the TV, the laptop, the roaring wind, the shower, our kitty (Mr. Moo)...If it's moving and/or making noise he's glued to it! He is getting very sturdy at sitting up on his own and is able to sit and play with toys on the floor. We also introduced Ty to sippy cups and puffs, this month, he's doing pretty good with both. He's holding his own bottle, grabbing his own spoon, walking with help, and flipping pages to books. The cutest change is the eye rub when he's sleepy. It melts my heart and is helpful in letting me know it's nap time!

The only negative change this month has been in sleep. It used to be that the boy would rarely nap, but slept a solid 12 hours at night. Now he takes 2-3 one-and-a-half hour naps, but only sleeps about 10 hours at night. The problem is that he is up at 5:00am, every morning, and no matter what I try changing (bedtime, last feeding, naps, etc), he refuses to sleep longer. Mommy and daddy have been a lot sleepier this month!

It is such a privelege to guide Ty through life and watch his excitement as he uncovers all his firsts. We are loving every minute with him and never stop thanking God for enriching our family.

  3. Oh baby Ty. I am so happy you made it to six months. You make my heart smile and give me belly laughs every time I watch the video of you laughing at your daddy's funny noises while your head bobbs back and forth from your jumping. Everybody loves you...and so do I......but I have to say.....I feel very sorry for Mr. Moo when you become a crawler.

    Love,
    Rebekah

  12. I feel like I am a part of your journey. I was thinking today...what a blessing you are...to so many of us. And, when I say 'you', I mean you, Ben, Ty, Rebekah and her family and your family.

    I was telling someone, today, about your story. And, how...really, your adoption story is truly - this is my personal belief - what adoption is meant to be about...at least in my heart. I'm just always so touched. I feel like...what a blessing that I even get to briefly witness your story through your blog.

    God is so alive and Ty's story is such a testimony to His love. It just overwhelms me. I love this boy. And his eyes...oh, his eyes.

    I'm praying for a magical Christmas for everyone attached to this precious boy.

  20. Even though I see him a lot I dote on all of the adorable pictures. He just poses so sweetly. What a character and what a dear, darling boy.

  21. Your love for that sweet little boy shines through in every single photo. He's one lucky little man.

    On a completely unrelated note, I had a question about the lens you typically use for your photos. I know you mentioned it was a 75-300 lens but did you go with Sigma or Tamron for that lens or stick with Nikon brand? I use a D3000 but need a 300mm lens so wondering whether to suck up the $500 pricetag for the Nikon or if the cheaper one works just as well. Like I said, completely unrelated :)
