The Punkin Patch

We headed to the pumpkin patch tonight to catch a few pictures of the boys. When we pulled in to the patch Tyler said, "We came here when I was three. " He loves to remind us that he is a four year old boy now. A couple weeks ago he had a crazy 4 hour stomach bug. Truly 4 hours. He threw up around 10 times in that four hour period. After one such upheaval, he informed us that when he was a three year old kid he threw up in his bed, but now that he is a four year old, he throws up in the toilet. I guess he is living proof of the saying, "with age comes wisdom". :)
Not sure how I found that rabbit trail, but back to business....the pumpkin patch. Our good pictures were far, few and in between. Mainly in between. We did get a couple keepers though, and I thought I would do a few flashback pictures from the last couple years. My little guys are growing up WAY too fast.



                                       Tyler looks incredibly grown up to me in the picture. :(

                                              Where, oh where have those little boys gone?

I love comparing the boys at different stages and in the same outfit. Here is one that I especially love!

This is Tyler. Sorry, its a picture of a picture because all of my files for him are on the other computer. Unfortunately, said computer, is no longer functioning. Computer man here we come.

For a fleeting moment the child lies very quietly. Savor the moment. The moments are very far, few and in between. Oh, how I love this squishy little guy.

And of course I have to include a picture of the littlest squishy. :)
 Needless to say, we like to live on the edge of danger. The wild side. Tupperware bowls on our heads...bring it on! What can I say, you haven't really lived until you've worn a tupperware "hat".

I was so excited to find these pictures today. Oh the memories they brought back. sniff. These are pictures of Tyler...a walk down memory lane.

 The blue blanket that is laying lying resting over him is extra special. Jonathan's Mom gave it to us as a shower gift for Tyler. It's our "Sunday" blanket, and all three of the boys have used it. When we had Carter dedicated a couple Sundays ago, it was one more event Mom wasn't able to attend. She was there for both Tyler and Zach's dedications, so it was tough to not have her there for Carter's. I decided that I would take a piece of her with us, so this was the blanket Carter used for his dedication day. Needless to say, this blanket is going to "live" with us a very long time. One that hopefully will be passed down  for generations!
 I always smile when I see this particular John Deere shirt. Anytime that Jonathan had to get Tyler or Zachy dressed this is the outfit he always put on them. (well, when they were in that size) I will let you know if he carries on that tradition with Carter.

          Speaking of squishy, his little cheeks look pretty squishable in this picture.
 Another memory, see I told you we were walking down memory lane, pictured below is Tyler's blanky that he still uses to this day. A few months ago, after I had washed his blanky, he came to me and told me his blanky smelled "disgusting". ha. He does not like me washing his blanky--strange, I know, but I guess he likes his own little smell on it.
Well, nighty night. Me and my squishy old self are going to bed. Sweet dreams.
