It's hard to believe that 11 years has passed since the Lord blessed us with our first born son!
Ty has always been big for his age, he started off at 8 lbs 10 oz and hasn't slowed down since.
I think one of his very first words was tractor and he has always loved everything John Deere.
He's always been very interested in how things work. This interest has gotten him in trouble on multiple occasions when objects were found taken apart and never quite went back the same way.
He's always had a dry sense of humor and can crack most jokes without a smile. He isn't nearly as serious as he often comes across.
Ty has an amazing ability to retain information. His ability to recall facts blows me away.
He has never had any interest in any endeavour that is remotely domestic. He might mix up some brownies for a competition but he prefers to leave the cooking to Sissy.
Lately, his little sisters and really warmed up to him. They know that he has a great lap for sitting and love for him to read them a story.
Ty is my muscle man. Whenever a Sam's trip is planned, Ty comes along and pushes the cart. He unloads the groceries and carries all the heavy items.
He's the leader of the pack with the boys. Unfortunately, his younger brothers often forget they aren't quite as old or big as Ty. That doesn't stop them from trying to be just like him.
Tyler has has an awesome ability to be his own person. I've often said that he has never been embarrassed. He does his own thing and if no one likes it, he isn't the least bit phased.
Ty is a wonderful son and a fantastic young man. He's growing, not only physically, but mentally and spiritually as well. We are so thankful that the Lord chose us to be his parents.
