Jibber Jabber

We had another iChat conversation with Ty and Carynn the other night. Ty had SO much to say. Unfortunately I couldn't understand much of it. Sigh....I know that he's telling me something, but to me it just sounds like jibber jabber. They were happy sounds, though so that was good. Ty was being very busy, but seemed to enjoy it when I sang some Primary songs to him. He actually stopped and listened. That was very gratifying. I'm so glad that I get to seem them when I pop home next week.

We're enjoying Southern Utah. There's so much to do nearby. This week we visited 2 other states-Arizona and Nevada. Today we went to Pipe Spring National Monument in Arizona and Wednesday we went to Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada. The volunteers at Pipe Spring were very helpful and gave us some ideas of other places we could go to see petroglyphs. I enjoy the historic structures that we've seen too.

The weather has been cool for here (high 50's) but still very nice.

More next week.

Technology can be wonderful! We were talking to Carynn and Ty on iChat the other day. Ty was talking too. We couldn't understand a lot of what he said, but he was trying to tell us lots of things. He's a great mimic too. He did one of his funny things where you think he's going to talk but he just opens and closes his mouth and nothing comes out. When we finished talking I blew him a kiss and he blew me a kiss back. The first time he's done that.

It was wonderful to hear AND see them. Like I said technology can be a wonderful thing!

Happy Valentine's Day with kisses,


Stand up kind of guy Part 2

I was talking to Carynn the other day and she told me that one of Ty's latest "things" is standing up on items that he shouldn't be such as:
His fire truck riding toy and the plastic box that holds his Fisher Price Nativity Set pieces both of which he tried just in the short time that Carynn and I were talking. She shared that the fire truck toy had to be put away because once he gets something on his mind he is VERY determined.

That's my boy...a stand up kind of guy!
