Mom and I went to visit Grandma Cookie in Denver for Mother's Day. We had a wonderful weekend! Of course Tanner was the star. He was showing off his new rolling moves and flashing his big smile to everyone we met. It is amazing how much joy a little baby can bring! Tanner posing. =-)
Sorry Ricky, Tanner has taken your place. He really knows how to make mom laugh!!

The last two weekends have been AMAZING!! We went up to Yale & Merwin for boating and fishing. We caught over 30 Kokanee!!

Give me the Keys dad!
I washed his hands really well. =-)

Sleepy baby...

Tanner's 1st Fishing Trip

The weather has been so wonderful we decided to let Tanner take his 1st Fishing trip last weekend. Jeff, Uncle Bobby, Cousin Andy and Grandpa Sander went up to Yale lake to teach Tanner how to fish. Unfortunatly they didn't catch anything but had a lot of fun!! Tanner was so REALLY excited for the trip!
Driving the boat already!!
Grandpa Sander teaching him all about the fish. He was a big helper, look at what Tanner is holding!

Tanner posing for the camera, he is such a flirt! He just loves batting his long eyelashes and flashing his big smile everywhere we go.

He has started to become a good eater! The pears and apples are his favorites. He is not a big fan of the veggies, we have to sneak in bites between the fruit.
He is so close to crawling. He has started head butting the floor and pulling his knees up underneath him. He is constantly moving now! The only time he slows down is right before bed. It is so wonderful when he starts snuggling into your shoulder when he gets tired.

Easter 2009

Tanner Loves Bath Time!!! He is starting to really like the water and would stay in the Tub for an hour if we let him.

Tanner is saying Hey Grandpa!

Tanner is playing a lot... but still likes to cuddle. :-)

Tanner loves being outside in his walker. He could play under the Palm Tree for hours.

Tanner is got so excited about the Easter Candy he wanted to try to walk. Notice he still has a firm Grip on his balloon... He LOVES balloons!

Tanner is 6 months old!

We had a GREAT Birthday weekend! It is funny how even on your Birthday it isn't about you anymore. Tanner being 6 months old on the 29th was way more exciting than me turning 29. =)

Here is a little video of Lynn helping Tanner show off his dancing moves to Grandpa's songs.

This was my first week official week as a stay at home mom. I LOVED it!! I just can't get enough Tanner time. We had a GREAT day with Grandma Sander on Tuesday and stayed for a wonderful dinner since Jeff was working in Seattle this week on his Mercer Island job. Grandma and Grandpa Sander can REALLY make Tanner laugh! Check out that smile!
Tanner has some quality time with Daddy when he got home. =-)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

We started celebrating St. Patrick's Day early at a great party at Audri's parents house last night! Tanner is following in his daddy's footsteps and LOVES a party!

Grandma & Grampa Big Fish came down for Jeff's 30th Birthday with Cousin Sawyer and Ben & Emily. Sawyer loved playing with Tanner's toys and Tanner didn't mind sharing. It was really fun seeing Sawyer and Tanner play together. Sawyer is going to be such a good big brother!!

Grandma Carlsen got Tanner laughing so hard! He just loved bouncing and talking to his mommy & daddy.

Nap time =-)

This is Tanner's first trip to the Beach. Jeff's buddy from college came to visit from eastern washington so we took a day trip over to Cannon Beach. The sun came out just long enough for us to take a nice walk on the beach.
Next week is my last week at work. I am really looking forward to being with Tanner full time! It was a very difficult decision to leave a good job with such great people but I just can't stand being away from my little guy. I miss him so much!! I am really looking forward to being a full time mommy. He is growing so fast I don't want to miss a thing!
Hopefully I will have more time to keep everyone updated now too! =-)
