10 Months

Well I can't believe it. TyAnn is 10 months old.  It just seems like yesterday that I was waddling around wishing I could bend over. LOL!  She has been such a blessing to our lives.  What a sweet little girl.  She has such a pleasant personality and seems to just enjoy life. 
I wanted to update on all of her little tricks although she seems to add new ones daily.  She can say both Mama and Dada although she said Dada first (guess she is a daddy's girl).  I think she is confused though because I have worked with her to say Dada and Ben gets her to say Mama but I think she will get it all figured out.  She is drinking out of a sippy cup and loves apple juice.  She just started eating graduate puffs and loves to eat cheese.  Her favorite toy right now is her little laptop (go figure) but she also loves her cell phone too.  She can scoot around but has yet to actually crawl.  She can stand by herself next to the couch for hours and it won't surprise me if she walks before she crawls.  I have a feeling once she takes off it will be RUN RUN RUN! She loves being outside whether it is riding on the ranger, sitting in her stroller or hanging out the window of the feed truck looking at the cows. 
She is such a fun little girl and is the center of our world!  I know it will just get better and better but I can't imagine how!

Valentines Day!

I can't believe its another Valentines day and birthday! Wow I am now officially in my mid 30's but still feeling like it is my mid 20's - lol!! I had a wonderful birthday and Valentines day. My husband and daughter gave me a beautiful black diamond necklace and earrings - they have such good taste. I came home to a dozen red roses from my dad and felt like such a special girl!!

For Valentines Day TyAnn and I thought we would surprise Ben and get our pictures taken. We figured he needed a nice pic of his girls for his desk. As usual Treva did an awesome job!!

We also went out to dinner with some friends of ours Ferron and Reyna Lucero and their kids for Valentines Day. Here is a picture of the kids. They had a big time and it was nice to go to dinner with our friends. All in all it was a wonderful birthday and Valentines day! Thanks family for making me feel so loved!

1st Pony Ride

TyAnn's first pony ride - she is a natural. Yesterday I pulled out the rocking horse that her Grandma Melinda gave her. She is finally old enough to sit on it by herself and she can actually get it rocking.

She loves it. When she gets on she sits there and pets it's mane and when you go to pick her up she doesn't want to get off. She has only been "bucked off" once but she is one tough cowgirl and hopped right back on!!

Way to go TyAnn!!!

4th of July - Canadian, TX

For the first time in several years Ben and I got to spend the 4th together. He announces a rodeo in Canadian, TX and so TyAnn and I joined him this year. It was a great time. Canadian is a very cute and very clean town. We got to watch the parade, shop at all of the vendors set up and of course enjoy the rodeo. Ben did a great job as usual and on Monday they even flew him in on a helicopter for the opening of the rodeo. We also went swimming at the city pool and went down by the river. All in all it was a great way to spend the 4th.

TyAnn's First Big Trip!

Every year Ben and I go out to Reno to work the Reno Rodeo Invitational Team Roping or as its known by the Perry roping. This year was no exception EXCEPT it was TyAnn's first big trip and she handled it like a pro. Security at the airports was no problem to her and hanging out at a team roping was A okay! I am so lucky to have such a great daughter!!!

TyAnn's First Flight

We had a blast at Reno, my dad and brother Jade came out and met us. I taught Jade a little of my black jack skills and well my dad got to babysit one of his favorite granddaughters. One quick funny story. As he was waiting on Jade and I the security gaurd came on told him he had to leave the casino floor because TyAnn was too young. My dad looked at him and asked him if he really thought she would pull the slot lever but then carried her on out. So TyAnn you were just 2 months old when you got kicked out of your first casino - LOL!

Getting ready for the PDL!

After an exciting BFI and Perry roping, Ben, TyAnn and I flew to SLC to then drive up to Rock Springs for my dad's USTRC roping. Lex, Lisa and their kids were there along with Pete, Pam and Andee. Andee was selling her puppies and sold three while she was there. The whole family had a blast as we got a motel with an indoor pool. TyAnn went on her first swim and absolutely loved the water. Tess and Brady were big hits too as they both had no fear of the water. It was a fun filled weekend and Ben and I were both sad to leave. Having TyAnn has made it even more fun to hang out with the fam!!

Time Flies...

So I now understand what my parents meant when they would say "you are just growing up too fast". That is exactly what I am saying about my daughter. She is now 5 weeks old and growing like a weed. I told Ben today that by next week I was going to have to pack up her newborn clothes because they would be too small. How sad my tiny little girl is growing up...

But how exciting as well... She is constantly changing every day and it is so fun to watch her become more and more aware of her surroundings. She is now learning to make all sorts of sounds and she has figured out how much fun it is to wave her arms and kick her legs.

She has had an exciting 5 weeks from going to PBR, College rodeo, and two team ropings she is broke in. She has had her diaper changed on a bleacher bench and in the back seat of a truck so I figure she is ready to go!! She must realize that her mom and dad live very busy and on the go lives because so far it hasn't bothered her. Here are some pictures of all of her trips...:)

She is either learning to be an announcer or has already learned to tune her Dad out...LOL
