Two Months

Collin is now two months old. It has gone by so fast. He is a joy to have around.

I love how everyday you discover something about him that you did not know the day before.
How his personality shows itself more each day. While Madison has always been stubborn, he is more picky. He knows what he likes and wants it that way, and it up to you to discover what it is. If he is awake when you put him to bed the light has to be on or he will fuss. If he is already asleep when you put him to bed, the light has to be off or he will wake up and fuss.

When he is awake his eyes are wide open as he looks, watches, and discovers this new world he has come to.

When his sister looks at him, his face brightens and he smiles because he already loves her and knows that she loves him.

I love that sometimes when I pick him up his arms wrap around my neck as though he is giving me a big hug.

I love how his bottom lip will stick out when he is upset, but he dose not always cry after.

I love that he has my chin shake, and you never know when it will start to shake.

I love that from the moment I found out I was pregnant I started to love him, and everyday I love him more.

I am glad that I was able to do what neither of my sisters have been able to do, and have a boy.

I anxiously await being able to watch him grow into a toddler, child, young man, and a man; but I will always hate that he is growing up.
I wish he has all the happiness in the world, because he deserves it.

I am glad he had a father and mother who love him enough to have been sealed in the temple.

I am glad he will be raised in the fullness of the gospel.

I am glad he is a Child of God.

Three generations of Tyra Boys

While You Were Sleeing

Last night, while the rest of my family was asleep, I discovered something. When Wayne starts snoring Collin does too, and when I nudge Wayne to get him to stop, Collin does too. It was amazing.

Sleepless Nights

Last night the kids decided to gang up on me and not let me sleep.
Madison went to bed at 6:00 pm (three hours before her bed time).
Collin went to bed at 1:00 am (two hours after his bed time).
Madison woke up around 2:30 am. Just after 3:00 I had had enough of her jumping around in my bed and went to the front room with her so she could watch movies and I could sleep. I had gotten everything set up and started Cinderella, which catches her undivided attention, laid down on the couch and started to fall asleep when Collin wakes up wanting to eat. It is now after 4:00 am when I get to lay down again and go to sleep again. Madison however has other plans she dose not want to watch her movie, she just wants to bug Mommy. Once Cinderella is over I put on Cinderella III, Madison dose watch this movie and when it is over she wants to watch Cinderella II. Can you guess what her favorite movie is? This finishes up around 6:30 so I put the TV on Disney channel and let her watch cartoons. When Wayne leaves for work around 7:20 Madison gets very irrational and wants to get outside. She is wining and throwing a fit so I shut her in her room so she can take a nap at 7:30 am. At this point Collin wants to eat again so I feed him then I decide I still need more sleep and for the last time I go to bed not to wake again until 10:30. Lets hope tonight is better.

Old Pictures

My last day of work was last April. I had many great pictures of that day, but my computer went wonky and erased the memory card. Wayne's brothers bishop works in data recovery so he said he would take a look at it. Just a couple of weeks ago I finally got my pictures.

With Jen Witham, we have been friends since 7th grade. We auditioned together and both got jobs as Character Hosts in 2000.

Also on that card were also all our Easter pictures. Normally that would not be a big issue, but this last year Easter fell on my birthday. Since my birthday is in March this is a very rare occurrence, an I am glad to get my pictures back.

Daddy's Little Angel

Wayne is a big Angles fan, so while I was at Babies 'R' Us I found a cute Angles outfit for Collin. The outfit will fit him in a couple of months but I had to get a picture of him in the hat to send it to Wayne while he was at work. He was so proud of this picture he had to show it to everyone in his office.
(yes my boy is on a paisly boppy)
