Arm Wrestle

This is when we were in St. George for Mother's Day (we went to surprise my mom)and Bobby THOUGHT he could beat me at an arm wrestle! The original video was too long and it wouldn't upload so I had to cut the end off, but I'm sure you'll know who ended up winning!!

Cuddle Bug

For the past couple months whenever it was time for Tyler to take a nap or go to bed I was always able to lay him against my chest and rock him to sleep, but one day as I tried to rock him to sleep he just kept crying and crying and getting more angry so I thought it would probably be best for the both of us if I just laid him down and took a little "time-out" for myself until I (and he) calmed down, when to my surprise he fell asleep within 2 min. Ever since that day I have never been able to rock him to sleep, it always just makes him more angry. When I notice he's starting to get tired I just pick him up and lay him in bed and he falls asleep in seconds. Part of me is thankful I never had to "train" him to fall asleep by letting him cry in his bed for hours, but part of me really, really misses holding him in my arms and watching him fall asleep. But last night, after his bath, for whatever reason he decided he wanted to fall asleep with me and as soon as I picked him up to take him to bed he just laid his little head down on my shoulder and rested his arm on my chest and let me hold him till he fell asleep. I just held him like that for 30 min. b/c I missed it so much and made Bobby take a picture just in case it was the last time!:(

For Ashley:)

I was talking to my great friend Ashley, who lives in TX, yesterday and promised her I would update my blog. I didn't realize it had been so long (and not that much has happened in the last week) but I was going through our camera emptying the memory card and found a couple funny videos from awhile back. Enjoy!

This one was taken a little over a month ago. It was funny to watch Tyler copy-cat everything Bobby was doing.

I can't seem to get this other video to upload (of Bobby and I arm wrestling)but I'll keep trying!

Tyler's 4 mo. doctor visit

Tyler doesn't like getting shots from Dr. Berry :(

At 4 mo. Tyler is 12.6 lbs and 24 inch. He is in the 50% for height and head size and 10% for weight...does he still look tiny to you?!

Sweet Bobby

Today at about 11:30 there was a ring at the doorbell and I opened the door to find these:

Bobby sent me yellow flowers b/c they're my favorite!!! What a sweetie!

Mean parents????

The quality isn't all that great so you might not be able to see exactly what's going on, but every time Bobby would make this snarling noise Tyler would jump and get this crazy scared look on his face. Maybe we're mean for doing this to him, but it was just so dang funny we had to record it!

Tyler's first 4 wheeling trip

So yesterday while I was driving around Tyler fell asleep in the back in his car seat, so rather than going straight home I decided to drive around for awhile so that he could get a good 30 min. nap. I was driving around in some backwoodsy neighboorhoods just looking at the houses when I came upon a road that was barracaded and a sign that said "Road closed". Well only one side of the road was blocked and the other side looked fine from where I was in the car so I proceeded to drive down the road (HELLO!). About 30 sec. down the road I saw a puddle of water that was pretty wide, but didn't look deep and decided that it wouldn't be that big of deal to drive through it. And of course it was not a puddle of water it was a huge hole in the middle of the road! And that's not even the bad part!!! I heard Tyler sort of whimpering in the back but he wasn't crying so I figured I had just woken him up and he'd fall back asleep once I started driving again. So after I manuevered the car our of the hole I drove back home (about 15 min.) and when I got out of the car to get him I look in the backseat and to my horror see the carseat-base and all-completley toppled over on its side. (Earlier that day I had moved the base from one side of the car to the other and hadn't buckled it back in correctly) The carseat base was still buckled but the belt was loose enough that when I hit the bump, the whole thing toppled over. I was absolutely horrified and when I looked at Tyler he just looked up at me with a little grin on his face. I can't believe I had driven the whole way home without even looking back at him to make sure he was okay and he had driven that whole way without crying!!! It's a good thing that he won't remember the first few years of his life! Someday I will get this mother thing down!

Mr. Pee Pee Pants

So this is what happens when I tell Bobby to put the diaper on the baby BEFORE he plays with him and he doesn't listen to me...
And this is how Tyler feels about it...

Scared straight

Today Tyler was throwing a fit (can 4 mo. old's throw fits?), well whatever it was he was screaming so hard that he started to gag and then stopped breathing. His face turned grey and I totally panicked. I started to shake him (gently) to make him breathe again and he started to get a little color in his face and then took a big gasp of air. I don't think I have ever been so scared in my life. Man I love that little boy!

Just trying to figure out how to post a picture...

1st Blog

I'm not sure I understand this whole blogging thing, but I think it's just a place where I can post pictures and videos and keep some sort of a public "diary" so that friends and family can see what's going on with the Bricker family, right? Well, here goes...
