(The blur at the bottom left side is his hand. As I was taking the picture he reached for the camera and said, "Take picture Ty's fingers")
(I forgot to take a picture until after I had wiped it off her face and most of her hair with a baby wipe.)

Ready for paintball
Sitting with "Umpa" at my cousin's wedding.
Tyrel's picture of the wedding. He asked if he could take a picture, so I showed him what button to push, and this is it. A wedding from a two year old's perspective.
Still working with DaddyWe are working on teaching him "Yes sir, and Yes Ma'am." That is something Stephen and I both do, but Tyrel often just says "yeah". I have discovered I don't like that word much. I use it a lot though. I much prefer him to say Yes or Yes Ma'am or even Okay. So I am also having to retrain myself.
He is my right hand man. It is so nice to see training paying off at such a young age. He can go and get things for me, put things in the trash, sort of rinse the dishes, help wipe the table, put his dishes in the sink, put clothes in the laundry, help put laundry away, help gather firewood, and all with a joyful attitude. I know there is more he can do, but those are the specifics coming to mind. We are still and will be for some time I am sure, working on having a good attitude, not whining, not excessively crying over things that don't need cried over in the first place. I know sometimes you just have to cry. So I tell him to go lay on his bed to cry (unless he is really hurt or something, then I'll hold him) and if it is nothing, he can stop absolutely instantly, or if he needs to cry it out he will go cry on his bed. We are still working on two year olds not being the boss of the family and such fun stuff as that. But over all, he is a very good, very sweet wee lad.
