We hear this at least 20 times a day. No exaggeration. It’s not the sound of a bark, it’s the word “bark”. This has been going on for at least 6 months, probably longer. Her imagination and the ways she uses being a dog, never cease to amaze me, she’s a smart cookie doggie.
Anyway, yesterday, I had plans to take Ty and Taryn off shopping while Jase stayed home with Teagan so he could nap. Ty decided not to go, which suprised me. When Taryn and I got back, we found out why. He built our little doggie a dog house. How sweet is he?! Gosh I just love him.
She was THRILLED. Beyond thrilled.
I love how Ty does these thoughful things for her. Sometimes he bakes her a cake, pink of course, hides it somewhere in the house and leaves a trail of little notes for her to find it when she gets out of the tub. He’s done this so many times, and yet everytime she gets out of the tub to find a trail of notes, it’s like it’s never happened before, she gets so excited.
He also made Taryn and Teagan’s gifts this year for Christmas….Taryn got a paper garland made of pink paper of course. Teagan got a mobile, Ty worked for hours on it and it turned out so great. I’m so proud of the kid he is, even when he gives us fits, talking back, misbehaving, being 11…..I can’t wait to see the person he becomes as he matures, the man he’ll be, possibly the father he’ll be himself one day.
oh my goodness- how sweet!!! what a great big brother she has!
Ty has such a thoughtful heart! He is the BEST big brother, EVER! What does the sign say at the bottom?
p.s. I have had several conversations with Taryn where all she did was “bark”. But every bark has a different tone and emotion…she can be quite expressive with her barks! Actually, they were some of my most enjoyable conversations!!
Okay I’m a stalker and I never leave comments but after reading this I just had to. That is just about the sweetest thing I have ever heard. I couldn’t even imagine how proud you must be.
Oh my gosh…this is the sweetest thing ever. I wish I had a big brother like that! And my 2 1/2 year old is never Rory anymore. It’s either Cinderella or a dog. One day she was barking up a storm, and I was completely zoning her out. Finally, I was like, “what the heck is all the barking about?” Well, my mistake; I had forgotten to let her out of her “dog kennel”?!?! Funny imaginations!
Oh, and you do realize that all these sweet things you told us about Ty make you look even meaner for playing that prank on him; don’t you? j/k!
Your family is the greatest!
Ty is my favorite kid ever. So creative and such a sweetie. Wow.
Mercy, mercy, me! Lucky is the woman who claims his heart. I’d start praying now that she is worthy.
Ty is a real gem. I hope my boys turn out half as thoughtful as he is. Super cute pics too!
He is such an amazing kid! The best big brother, already an award winning photographer (Jamaica trip), he is truly special!!!!
So funny I came across this. Amarah has recently decided I’m her new pet and we have to play “doggy” each day. It’s so cute how she nuzzles my nose and tells me what a good, cute doggy I am.
Ty is a great kid and big brother. I hope Taryn’s still having lots of fun with her dog house.
Wow that is SO SWEET! What a great kid! He will be a great man, and a great daddy, someday 🙂
