When Tyler came out he was not breathing. They had to take him up to NICU and get air to him. He was only up there for 3 hours and was fine the rest of the time. When he was born he only weighed 6 lbs 2 oz. When we took him home he went down to 5 lbs 10 oz.
We have been through so much with him and his short 3 years. To genetic testing appts (go to the first posts ive done on here to read up on that) to him not walking till 18 months...to now, being a car loving kid.
Everyone who meets tyler is just falls right in love with him. He just has this sweet spirit and always has a smile
Even on his first bday when he was sick with RSV he was still happy
There is so much I could say about Tyler. He definitely is a blessing to have in our house and I'm glad hes my son. Happy 3rd birthday Tyler...we love you!

One great thing that happened this past week was that Jacob's therapy teacher said that she think he is FINALLY ready to go to school!! That has to be the best news Ive heard in a long time. So hopefully he will be good and ready to go in August when the new school year starts. He is going to a charter school that his therapy center is opening up starting next week so hopefully that will be the true test of how he will do. And I'm sure he will do great. He is so smart and is just soaking up all the info he can. He wants to learn all the time so I know this will be great for him.
Every Christmas Eve we have a little party with my dads side of the family. This year when we went, we were surprised to see my cousin Chelsea. She is in the Marines and stationed in Japan somewhere. Well she was there and it was so nice to see her. I think, from what they said, that she is going to be stationed in Yuma now so that's really nice. I am so proud of her and all that she is doing. She is not one that you would think would join the military but she did...and I think that's awesome!!
Friday is Tylers 3rd bday. We don't really have anything big planned for his special day. My sister Shelly will be here visiting and her little guy turned 3 on the 23rd so maybe we will celebrate both of their bdays together. We will probably just have cake and ice cream...nothing to big but im excited for him to be 3. And starting in the new year, he will be in my sunbeam class. I am not sure how I feel about that, but I guess time will tell. I think things will be fine and im excited to get a new class of kids. But I will sure miss my kids we have now. They are all 4 so they will be moving up.
Then on Saturday we are having a family reunion. Its my Grandma Johnson's 100th bday. She passed away 7 years ago (I think?) and I actually am kind of excited. I never really got to know a lot of my cousins on that side, so now that we are all grown up, it will be fun to see where everyone is. I know a lot of them are here in Arizona so I need to make a better effort to get to know them since there are a lot of them.
Well I guess that's it for us, for now. I will post again with some pictures of Christmas if I can get them up soon.

It was bedtime and I was making my rounds to rooms to make sure the boys were asleep. Tyler shares a room with the playroom and I went into his room and found this...I guess he was just wanted to play a little bit longer and was way to tired.
A few of you might be in these pictures...I tried scanning them to put them on my computer but for some reason they were not scanning so I decided to take pictures of them. It was way to dark if I turned off the flash but then the flash light showed if I didnt...so deal with the flash light...haha. This is my first grade class picture. Mrs White was the best teacher ever!! And im sure everyone who had her thought the same thing.
This next one is one of our softball teams. Not my fav team but it was a lot of fun. I sucked so bad at softball but I had a lot of fun and I guess thats what counts
When I was like 5 I was riding my bike and I was talking to someone (I really cant remember who it was I think it was one of the Worthen Girls) Anyways and I crashed into a parked car...haha oops. And this was the end result of that. Sooo sad =( Ok, so you cant really tell whats wrong but I had to get stitches in my head and my lip was all ripped up.
