Just Ty at 2

I've been meaning to post some little tidbits about Ty since his birthday...

The very first thing I need to say about Ty is he is nothing like any other child I've ever met.  I'm sure people say that kind of thing about their own kids a lot, but I promise you, he really, really is his own personality.  
There is no real way of describing him, but if I had to choose one picture to say it all, it would be this one...
 You wanna see a close up?
When I took this picture the boys were just running around playing, and when he saw me taking pictures he stopped right in front of me, and struck this pose.  Every time I see this picture, I just laugh.  I mean, look at that face.

-He loves to help cook.  He will sit on his stool, and watch anyone for hours while they cook.
-His favorite toy is either a spatula or a wooden spoon
-He loves to sneak into the pantry and he can open up any kind of snack/package by himself
-He, very annoyingly, loves to say the word "no" all the time.
-He can say pretty much anything.  Some of my favorite words he says: Hot cocoa, WOW, cookie, woo-hoo, whippie, OJ (oday),
-He is very picky about who he likes, and it takes him time to warm up to certain people.
-He has a real problem with Uncle Jesse right now.  This is what happens every time Jesse touches/picks him up:
-He still loves his "bebe's" (blankets) and prefers to have two blankets when he sleeps
-He has decided to follow in his brother's footsteps and refuses to change out of his Batman PJs
-He walks around singing "na na na na BATMAN" a lot.
-He loves to color on everything.  EVERYTHING.
-Still ridiculously flexible.  Bends himself in half on a regular basis.
 -He has a funny little trot-run when he tries to go fast.
-He loves to sing, but not in front of a lot of people.  Mostly he sings in the car when he thinks no one is listening.
-He is and always has been dramatic, and I am sure it is only going to get worse considering it's year 2
-He knows his colors and animals, but also doesn't like to share that with anyone.
-He loves the snow (or bubbles as he calls it)

Ty makes us laugh everyday.  And hopefully the "terrible" is kept to a minimum this year.
