Tanner Goose

I feel like Tanner is growing up so fast, and I haven't written down a lot of the cute things that he does. This blog is pretty much my journal right now since I can't keep up on my other one. For the past couple of months Tanner has been really attached to TJ. He cries when I try to hold him when TJ is around. Its kind of frustrating. Well lately he has been wanting me a little bit more. He is so cute when I put him to bed. He absolutely hates bedtime and naptime. So we have this routine that we do. He always cries "Rock a Baby" when we first get into his room, so I put him on my shoulder and sing rock a baby. Then I lay him down and he says Rug a Back, so I rub his back. Its the cutest thing ever to hear him say that. Then he says Love you Mommy, and I kiss his face and then leave. Its funny cuz he will not let TJ do this to him, its like he knows he can take advantage of Daddy. He cries and cries so TJ just keeps rocking him. What a smart kid!

Tanner is really into Shrek right now, and watchs to watch it every second of the day. A mother can only stand Shrek so many times, and thats about one. So the other day, we were getting ready to watch a movie, and Tanner of course yells Shrek! Then he said, Ahhhh Freet Out. If any of you have ever seen Shrek, thats one of the songs that plays on it, and it goes, Ahhh Freak Out. So I have told pretty much everybody I know that story. Soooo cute!

Tanner always says Thank You. Its so cute too. I never even have to ask him to say it. Every time I get him something (maybe not EVERY time) he says Tank You Mommy. His other famous sentences these days are Carter hit me, and I waaaant it. I also can't get the child to smile normal for a picture, but Carter went through that stage too!

Tanner is in love with his Papas, repeats everything you say, eats as much food as a grown man, and has the cutest personality a kid could ever have.

We love you Tanner Christian, or in our house Tanner Doose (Goose)!!!

Wow, is my girl amazing or what. All of you future moms who read this blog, please be sure to take note of how much you ought to love your kids. I've heard people talk about how becoming a mom takes away your freedom to do things that you want to do, and to be honest, there have been a couple of times when I've wanted to go see a show or something and have been bummed cause we couldn't find anyone to take care of the kiddos, but I have never once heard Erin say that she misses the freedom she had before she had these little warriors. She is my inspiration and my reason for getting up every day. Erin, 3 para siempre.

Yes TJ, your girl is amazing! She has become the best mom a kid could ask for. We are so proud of both of you. I just wished Tanner loved Grammie as much as Papa. They change & grow up so fast. I can wait for my turn! Keep up the great work with the kids! They are so cute and we love them!
