First Haircut

Yea, it's been a while since we posted....we haven't been keeping up very well like we said we would. Anyway, Tyler got his first haircut this past weekend at the ripe old age of 21 months. He finally had enough to cut. He was so good. Justin's cousin did it for us and Tyler just sat there playing with the water bottle while she cut.

Here are two pictures of how handsome he looks now with short hair.

Tyler is talking up a storm. It seems that we are the only ones that can truly understand him, but his vocabulary seems to double on a daily basis and the new words he uses seem to shock us everyday.

Well, here was just a quick post before I head off to work. Hopefully we'll both be more diligent in posting, but I doubt it. So enjoy your rare post for now.

Picture Catch-Up

I won't go too far back in posting pictures otherwise I am not sure how long it would take me to write and upload this single message.

I will do my best to give you a smattering of what we enjoy to get caught up and hopefully keep it going more regularly as Tyler gets bigger.

We bought this chair for when we go to the park and camping with a Christmas GC


Notice the absolute concentration on our little virtuoso's face. He is TOTALLY immersed in the music at this point. Daddy on the other hand is busy playing human piano bench...

Once in a while, Tyler has to go in time out (usually because mommy is on the phone and he is mad she won't let HIM have the handset.) He obviously sits there like he is told for the most part, but he doesn't enjoy it. For the record, a few time outs for the phone thing and it isn't much of a problem anymore.

So, uh, is this supposed to be fun? Maybe if we didn't just go in circles in the driveway? (he really does LOVE wagon rides)

Mommy calls this the "First day of School" Picture. He is only 17 months old here, but hey, maybe he's ready for Post-secondary option right now.

Pull! Puuuullll!

Amazing how you don't need to turn on movies, TV or video games for entertainment when your dinner parties include your closest friends (5 couples) AND all of your kids (8 of them 3 and under)

Tyler is getting a head start with the ladies as he lets the Meyer twins who are 5 months older than him bring him his juice and dote on him while he lounges.

Tyler doesn't know who Thomas is, but this working train was the hit of of the visit to a Shipshewana toy store on our way back from an Easter visit with Aunt Neasey and Uncle Nate

This toy wagon is a bit more my size to pull around, huh?

Well, that gets us caught up to a last week. Enjoy and let us know what you think.

Talk to you soon!

Yes, The Bari Blog still exists!

Sorry for not actually being a blogger as of late.

Much is going on in our family and finding time to keep in touch via this blog always seems to fall by the wayside.

We are going to try and fix that by using this to share photos and stories about what is going on more often.

In the meantime, enjoy a shot of our Litte Buddy from a week ago or so at some friends house for a busy dinner party with many kids.

I have a new job right in town, so my travelling time is greatly reduced.

With spring on the way, we had been getting outside a lot more until the weather turned around and headed the wrong way.

The next few weekends are busy ones for us, so we'll do our best to keep you in the loop!

Hope you are having a blessed year up to this point, and drop us a line to say hello!
