Today was Tucker's first day at Mother's Day Out. He cried hysterically when I dropped him off (totally expected this from my child) and was sobbing when I picked him up 5 hours later. I was assured that he didn't spend the ENTIRE time upset and his comment sheet said he was very happy at lunch (again, totally expected that from my child!). He'll be going once a week and I hope he gets to where he looks forward to this time and drop off is a little easier on him.Striking a pose for his pic

The official "first day in front of the front door pic" - even though we left out of the garage door

If you click on this picture to make it larger, you can see what Tucker has been doing lately to pacify himself. He's discovered it's a lot of fun to suck his finger! He never did take a pacifier, but a couple of months ago he started with his right pointer finger and so it's now swollen and has teeth marks on it.

Dallas Arboretum

We went to the Dallas Arboretum yesterday. I took some pictures of my baby boy, but somehow didn't get any pics of the pretty flowers all around us! So the first images in this post are borrowed from the internet!

This is from later that day at home, with a messy and drooley little man!

Into the Toddler Bed

We converted Tucker's crib into a toddler bed about 2 weeks ago. I was expecting a bit of struggle from him at nap time and bedtime, but he's surprised me and has been doing great with the change. Helping out Dad with the tools

Looking happy about the new set up!
