Oh, that Tucker-bear. He's so super busy! When I have both the boys here at the house they are four times the busy, then when I have just one. Here I go comparing again, but, when Carter was one we could put him down and he'd occupy himself for at least an hour. He watched Noggin, or a movie, not Tucker. No way, he's having no part of what would help out around here. You know what I'm talking about, sometimes you just need to have thirty minutes to cook, fold some clothes, go to the bathroom for pete's sake. Nope, shadow boy is hot on your trail!
He climbs, Carter didn't. He hides, Carter didn't. He screams, Carter didn't. He naps wonderfully, Carter didn't! I know they aren't the same kid, but could they at least act as if they were related??? Tucker will not sit still for anything. His new favorite thing to do is climb on top of things, under things, through things, doesn't matter to him, he just climbs! He's made his way onto the fireplace, under the kitchen table, he's almost conquered the couch. He climbs into the tub if you let him. He's a monkey. Maybe I should call him Tucker-monkey?!
I was washing dishes the other day and he was quiet. I could hear him babbling, but he was calm. So, no screaming means do what you can while you have a minute! Well, when I came around the bar I heard him babbling and grunting. I couldn't find him. Then, I did... UNDER THE TABLE! We have a large table. It seats 8 people. He had wiggled his way through the chair legs and was standing under the table. So now when we lose him that's the first place we look. (((Please, don't think badly of me for losing him in our house. It just happens!))) Last Friday he tripped over my feet and hit the a/c return. He had a perfect, round impression of the screw on his forehead for two days! If you look close you can see it in one of the pictures.
He's so spunky. He's his father made over to the naked eye but when you look into the soul of that little redhead, you see me. You see my sassy, my way or no way attitude, but then he gives you that smile that just shines to the world. He's pretty cool for a baby. I think I'll keep him!!! :)
I am a wife & mother. My husband is Travis and we have two beautiful boys, Carter and Tucker, that bring us more joy than we ever dreamed possible!These three consume my life and I am so grateful that God has allowed me to be a part of their lives. Travis is an amazing husband. He deals with my moody self with no complaints! Carter is a loving, happy, and on the go six year old. He makes us smile regardless of the situation. Tucker is our shy guy, but don't let the shyness fool you he's a firecracker underneath! His giggle is contagious, his eyes sparkle, and he gives the sweetest kisses! My family is pretty much my life, all the other stuff are extra blessings. I started this blog as a reminder to myself the days I wish to remember.
I started blogging in April of 2008. I wasn't really sure of what I was doing when I started this whole thing or whether or not I'd even stick with it. Looking back over the past year, I am so grateful that I jotted down the little memories that make up our life. The days pass so quickly I don't want to forget the funny little things that my children say or the moments that brought smiles to my face, or the bumps in the road that made my faith stronger. Blogging has become a part of my routine. I enjoy looking back and reading things that happened weeks back, and also sharing what's going on in our lives with my family & friends.

I thank God for my husband, Travis, each and every day. I love the way he puts up with my quirky ways and loves me regardless. He is a true blessing, and my life would not be complete without him. I LOVE YOU TRAV!
Our little cowboy
My oldest son, Carter. Six years old and full of energy and spunk. Each day is bright and fresh with this child, full of questions and a little heart that over flows with love. He's funny, sweet, and brings more smiles to my life then I ever dreamed possible!!! I LOVE YOU MORE CARTER!!!
Cowboy in training....
My little Tucker, a.k.a Tucker Bear, is such a little firecracker!! He is shy at times but when it's just us at home, expect the unexpected!!! He loves to sing. He loves to do whatever his Daddy and brother are doing. His eyes sparkle like stars and he gives the sweetest kisses. He's the life of the party, too! Twinkle, twinkle... I love you!
