So I thought I would blog and show off some of the pictures we have, since I went a little camera crazy and took a lot of shots and even filled our memory card.
This past week Shyler has had many adventures and big moments. She's had to say a lot of goodbyes and also gone to new places while doing a lot of the same old same old.
Last week started with a goodbye to our good friends the Tucker's. Derek got a job with the Navy and they now live in Florida. We will miss them so much!! I really want to go visit, and maybe we will get to this fall to see their new little one!
A 7 month pregnant lady golfing. She still beat me too! No handicap needed. Then there is Derek and his dad in the background. Can you tell they are related?
Saying goodbye after a yummy dinner at BeauJo's The four of us
Then on Thursday Shyler had to say goodbye to her boyfriend! So sad!! One of my really good friends here in Thornton is moving. We are happy for them because they have a really great opportunity ahead of them and they can be near family, but we are still sad to see them leave. Shyler and I have been walking and running with them since she was born. Holli has been such a great person to talk to and get advice when it comes to being a mom and just a great person. Did I mention I'm going to miss them?
The 2 of them sitting in their joggers, such a great invention. I love having this!
Shyler now loves the swing at the park and the slide, sometimesHolli and Hyrum
Those other suitors for Shyler better watch out!
Last Sunday Shyler decided she needed to wake up screaming and wouldn't go back to sleep unless Tim stayed with her. So he did but then he came back to bed and left her on the floor. When I went in to check on her this is what we found
What was even funnier is what was underneath the pink blanket. Notice the duck and the baby and blanket all securely tucked under her and her little sleepy head and the boppy she insisted sleeping on
On this note. I have some super exciting news and one last goodbye for Shyler.....
She is WEANED!!!!!!!! On Monday and Tuesday night I had to work so we just decided we would do it now. She gave up the morning fairly easily the week before and this last week wasn't too bad. She's been a little fussy, but that's not new. We have other things we do at bedtime that help her get ready for bed so even when I put her to sleep on Wednesday she went pretty willingly. It was kind of sad for me but also really nice too. I know I'll have others and I don't miss the whole dependency part since she wouldn't take a bottle, but I do and will miss the bonding time. I am also grateful I got to do it for 14 1/2 months, I remember being pregnant and hoping for 6 months!
Fun hike and bike tour! Today Tim went on a bike ride with his friends from freshman year of college. They all bike to the brewery's in Fort Collins and tour them. He enjoyed the company and some root beer! We don't have any pictures, but he did get soaked as he rode out to Budweiser.
We on the other hand stayed dry as we opted to hike up to Horsetooth Falls with my mom.
Touching the tree
The pond, so tempting
So tempting in fact she dove right on in! Face first!
We had to take off the pants and outer jacket and wrap her in my sweatshirt for the hike back. Pretty funny, but poor baby!
I loved these flowers!! They are purple and I think they have such a cool shape!
Our fun week!
