Eating Adventures

Taysen is quite the little boy. He curiously tries to take a taste of everything. A month ago I was in the bathroom getting ready while he played on the floor. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed a spider go by in the hall. Taysen turned and headed for it. How he saw it I don't know. He went crawling after this spider as fast as he could to catch it, but I thought there was no way he would catch up to it, but little did I know next time I look over he is putting something in his mouth. All I could think was he couldn't have, but sure enough I went to open his mouth to discover a slightly chewed spider in his mouth. Disgusting!! Just when I thought that it couldn't get worse...
We had a nice dinner of chinese for my dad's birthday and a yummy cold stone cake to follow. After that Tim decided to go play on the grass with Taysen while Dad visited on the phone with Amy's kids. I warned him to just make sure that Taysen didn't get by any dog poop. Sure enough a few minutes later Tim comes over carrying him "You'll never believe what your son just ate" as a green brown substance is dripping out of his mouth all over his shirt. Yep sure enough he had gotten a chunk of dog poo that was hidden down in the grass..DISGUSTING!!

Taysen 10 Months

These are Taysen at 10 months..He's growing up so fast. He now has conquered going up and down the stairs and makes sure he does it as often as he can. He loves to go up a few steps and turn around and wave and say "Ba,ba" (bye bye) He's a goof!

I had to include this picture because Taysen was trying to come eat a dandelion. In an attempt to take his pictures by myself I was trying everything to get him to smile. I tried blowing the seeds off an old dandelion, he thought it was great and he also thought it would be a great snack.

Tim's Birthday

Tim has turned the big 24. He has been wanting a scooter since he got home from his mission and although I was tempted to give him one this year the money just wasn't there so I made him a scooter cake instead. Close enough right? We had a great day and celebrated with a barbeque at Papa's house.

Taysen 9 Months

This is our crazy boy Taysen for his 9 month picture. I got fed up with the whole wal-mart photography that is available here so we decided we'd try to take his monthly pictures ourselves...Grandma and Grandpa Hawkins luckily have some great areas for pictures so its worked out okay so far.
