Last day of school

Today was my last day of preschool. So if you think I would of been on my best behavior...well your wrong. I got up this morning, got dressed and ate breakfast. I thought I was feeling pretty good. Dad even wished me luck as mom and I headed out the door. He also told me to get in some trouble because there was nothing the teachers could do about it since it was the last day of school. So mom and I were on our way. Then about an hour after she dropped me off, I started feeling bad and began throwing up. I don't think this is what dad meant when he made that comment this morning. So mom came and picked me up and we have been hanging out at home. I feel fine now. I have been a little constipated, which sometimes leads to me throwing up at times. So all is well.
Even though I missed my last day of school. I get to go back for the summer. I get 1 week off and then I go for 6 more weeks. So I guess I am looking forward to that.

My favorite question

I have been having a pretty lazy Memorial Day weekend. It has pretty much been me and dad the whole time. Mom has had to work ALL weekend. We have played and watched movies and played some more.
One of my favorite things to do lately has been swinging. I have always enjoyed swinging but now I get overly excited when you ask me "Tyler, do you want to go swing?" I kick my feet and yell out in excitement. Maybe mom will get it on video tomorrow so we can show you. The other day my mom asked me if I wanted to swing and I quickly turned my head to the front door, kicked my feet and got really excited. Mom even got excited because she saw me turn my head to the door. It was like I was telling her "yeah it's outside". I could sit out there for hours and just swing away. And I always get upset when we have to go in.

It's Official!!

Well, I can finally say that I am officially off the bottle. I have been working for the past couple months drinking from a cup. I have tried sippy cups but I could never figure it out or be capable of drinking from them. I even tried a "honey bear" which my speech therapist has tried with me but never perfected that either. So we went on to a regular o' cup.

I really like drinking from them because I feel like a big boy when I do it. Although I don't actually hold the cup myself, someone has to hold and tip the cup for me. But I still think this is better than a bottle. When I first started, I sometimes wore most of what was in the cup than actually drinking it. But now I may only have a few dribbles here and there that end up on my shirt. So mom was finally able to put all my bottles in storage.

I can drink from pretty much any kind of cup but the one that works the best is from Tupperware (the bell shaped cup). It is a perfect size and flares out at the top like a bell so it fits perfect around my lips. Thanks to my babysitter for introducing me to these. They even have a lid like a sippy cup that you can add.
So my next goal with this will be to hold and drink from the cup myself. And I am sure I will be needing the lid when I begin that step or else there will be a lot of spills to clean up. The problem that I have with holding a cup is that they are too wide and I can't get my adducted (collapsed) thumbs around them. Another goal for me is bringing the cup to my mouth. The only thing right now that I bring to my mouth is toys and nothing else. Put a cookie in my hand and I will just hold it....kind of strange I know. I just have no interest in feeding myself. I guess you can call me lazy.

I hope that you enjoyed getting to know me a little better. I encourage anyone who would like to join in on the tagging.

Last Time

So I know you are probably tired of me talking about chewing on my shirts and chewing holes in them (if you aren't you can read up on that by clicking here, here and here), so I promise you that this will be the last time. But I guess mom wants to address it and show how much damage I have done. I have ruined 4 PJ shirts and 9 regular shirts. Some shirts may have just 1 little hole in them and others look like I was attacked by a bear (especially my PJ shirts). Below is a picture of all the damage ~ some of the shirts didn't make it in the picture because they have been thrown away.
