Puffs & Power Lines

Friday started off as any normal day, Adam and I went to work, Wyatt went to the sitters. After we all got home we went to Mariachi's in Wauseon for dinner with my parents. As we finished the storm started to roll in (it was really interesting, I wish I would have had my camera on me). We got to mom & dads and it started to dump rain, so we figured we'd hang out there. I fed Wyatt his dinner and then gave him is favorite.... FRUIT PUFFS! He's doing so well eating finger foods now and can get them into his mouth like a champ!

Shortly after Wyatt's meal mom and dad's phone rang. It was our neighbors calling because they couldn't find us -- our tree was on FIRE! Adam and I rushed home to find this...

The wind had nocked down our electrical pole and it was stuck in the tree. It continued to burn the whole time, off and on. No one lost power surprisingly.

We couldn't get in the house until Edison arrived, wich wasn't until 9:30ish. The firemen were great, they let us stay in the truck when it started raining again. They even offered us dinner (they ordered pizza from Mom's Diner).

Edison finally got done at 2:30am! I stayed the night with Wyatt at Mom & Dad's - Adam stayed at home to keep an eye on things.

The pole that went down was damaged about a mont ago when a drunk driver crashed into it at 2:30 am. Edison said they would come out and fix it, but never did. I'm betting if they would have done so the first time around, we wouldn't have had this problem!

Visiting the family

Wyatt and Mom had to stop out to Debbie's for a "computer service call". All three kids got together for a pose and Deb snapped some shots. I thought this was ADORABLE!

Digital Scrapbooking

Okay, so I've got myself a new hobby. I enjoy scrapbooking but it's just so time consuming. Plus, if you cut a paper too short, or don't measure right, you've got to go buy more paper! I've just started to do digital scrapbooking, as you can see from the images at the top of the page. I can create my own 'papers' and 'elements' or purchase them online ( is my favorite place to go). Once I've got all of my pages complete, I just need to upload them to an online photo printing place such as and they'll print my scrapbook! I LOVE IT!

Here are a couple of samples of other pages. I got the papers and such from Scrapbook Elements. Misty Cato is my FAVORITE designer there.

On the move

Well it's official... Wyatt is CRAWLING! He started about a week before he hit 7 months old. We've started to get some of the safety equipment out and have blocked off the office. He has a facination with the speaker wire and has gotten his hand spanked a couple of times. Not to worry, he's quickly learned "No, no, no!" and will usually stop what he's doing when he's scolded.

Let's see - what other milestones has he accomplished (there's been a few).

He started to wave bye on Monday. We were in the Hospital visiting my Dad (who is at home and doing very well! Feel free to shoot him an e-mail or give him a call). Dad waved to Wyatt and he grinned and started to wave back. It's adorable because he knows he doing something "big".

He can now go from laying down to sitting up. I'm very glad for this because he'd lay down and then get TICKED because he couldn't get back up.

We've been working with him and using sign language. Milk, hungry, more and dog have been our first signs. He'll someitmes sign dog (slap your leg like calling a dog) when Dharma is near. Just yesterday he signed Milk back to me when I asked him (and signed) if he wanted milk (open and close hand like milking a cow) and he repeated the motion. When I showed him the bottle his little hand REALLY started going as if to say GIVE ME THE MILK NOW MOM!!!!! I'm going to work on change (change diaper), bath, mom and dad next.

Wyatt got his first two teeth at 6 months of age. The top ones are on their way in and have been bothering him from time to time. I just with the darn thigns would come in already! UGH! He's a terror when he's uncomfortable and I feel so bad because there's not much I can do for him. I have found that popcicles seem to help, and he LOVES them. Mmmmmm... SUGAR! Ha!!!

Well I'm going to try and get some photos up for everyone to see sometime soon, and maybe a video clip or two.

Love you all!

Welcome Friends & Family

After several friends and family members have asked me for photos and updates on Wyatt and the family, I've decided to start another blog (and hopefully stay on top of things this time) for everyone to enjoy. I'll try to keep everyone both near and far updated on our most current happenings and Wyatt's newest accomplishments.
