PS - Ty journal comments are now attached to the photo section for that time period... but the old journal comments are below:
|Feb 7, 2000
extravaganza! I updated the stats and the photo page.
My format has sort of changed and my Ty synopsis is now pretty much all in the photo page... so head in that direction. Micro-summary: Excellent!
|Oct 15, 1999
|Mega Ty 1/2
year old update.
Stats and photos updated.
Lots of stuff in the photos section, so check it out.
|Aug 5, 1999
|Well, Ty is
four months old now. This is going to be a quickie...
I call this update "cruise control" because we are on parenting cruise control. Ty is a dream.
|June 24, 1999
Increasing my sanity
through the last two nights... for the first time! Last
night, he had a 10:00 pm feeding and went to sleep around
midnight. Then, he woke up at 7:30 am... excellent!
These are old, but I never posted them on the web site... the Ty announcement photo cards. We sent an announcement card to everyone we could think of, and there were three different cards in the set (for you collectors out there).
Ty's personality ramps up more and more each day. He's one week shy of 3 months, and here are some highlights:
Ty is very muscular and very strong...
Ty is a mama's boy...
Ty is independent...
Ty is dying to talk...
Ty is a great traveler and dinner companion...

|I posted the
Ty journal today... finally. Check everything out that
you care to, and my diligence in keeping this page up to
date will relate directly to the squawking you do about
how out of date it is. Hee-hee.
Here are two (pretty) recent sections that I have added to the photo album:
had his two month checkup at the doctor's today. Ty be
I've added this data to the Ty stats page
Ty also got a couple shots... bummer. Quote of the day from Ty's doctor (please feel free to affect your own exaggerated Indian accent):
"I must tell you... a baby that grows this fast... is going to be a big baby."
- Dr. Kudchakar, Ty's doctor
Ty Comes Home
came home the next day, Friday. He met a lot of the
family... here are the photos:
Tyler Krieger is born on 2:37 p.m. Thursday April 1, 1999
at Edward Hospital in Naperville, IL. Ty is:
I posted a web page theday after Ty was born for all the out-of-towners... Here it is in its orignal form:
Here are some cool pictures of Ty's arrival from the photo album:
me, this seems a hundred years ago. Before Ty, there was
"Felix the fetus". Felix was Ty's name in
utero. See, the idea was instead of calling the baby
(well, fetus) "it" or "the fetus" or
"hey you", we'd name it.
I posted some ultrasound pictures and heartbeat recordings at the:
I thought I really might be onto something with this name-the-fetus idea... you know a whole franchise thing. There would be fetus T-shirts, fetus greeting cards, fetus fridge magnets... Alas, it all crumbled when Ty came out and it took us (and visitors) 3-4 days to stop calling him Felix. So, the whole name-your-fetus concept really didn't pan out. Oh well, on to my next idea... Vitamin cigarettes! All the cool, smoking pleasure without the cancer and you get your USRDA requirements in 10 minerals and vitamins. Stay tuned.
