I realize that at this point I'm a broken record. BUT... HOW DID MY BABY GROW UP????!!!!
Tyler tends to be a mouth breather, and this, coupled with some other allergy related sinus issues, makes me think we may be on the road to some allergy intervention methods down the road. We have his well check later this week where I plan on asking some questions on what the future looks like with Tyler. If anything, I just want him to be comfortable, and right now I just don't feel like that's the case.
In terms of size, Tyler is a bit of a chunk. A few weeks ago at the doctors office he weighed almost 25 pounds. No idea on his height yet, as his well check isn't until later this week (I'll edit this post to update that when we find out). He wears size 4 diapers during the day, size 5 at night, wears size 18 months clothes and size 4 shoes. He LOVES water, LOVES music, LOVES his brothers and LOVES the outdoors.
Oh Mr Tyler-
Many see us out in public and shake their head in disbelief. I'm not sure they are more concerned about the fact that I have three kids so close in age, or three boys, or maybe it's a combination of the two. And I'm not going to lie: I shake my head in disbelief too. But not because you're my third child, which makes my number of kids a bit more than the average American. And I don't shake my head because you're a boy, which left me off the train of being able to have a "balanced gendered" family. No, I shake my head because I can't believe that God would so richly bless me to have three little men. Raising you (and your brothers) is not a right. It is my privilege. And I am so honored that God gave me that privilege... the privilege to be your mom. I'm not perfect. I know that. And I will be the first to tell it to you when I mess up. But I will love you fiercely. I will be your biggest cheerleader (although, please don't ask me to do a double backhandspring. I've never been known for my grace or agility). I will be your biggest fan, even if you lose your game, make an F on your homework or make a mistake that others will laugh at you for. I'm sure all of these things will happen in your life because it's just part of life and we all have to walk a tough journey. But I want you to know that I am here walking right next to you. I love you so very much and I can't wait to watch and see how your life unfolds. Happy Birthday little man.
So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do. 2 Thessalonians 1:11 (NLT)
