Tyler Kjell Jensen

This is Tyler Kjell Jensen, my second son. He was born on March 21, 2006 and will be 18 months in September. His middle named is pronounced 'S H E L L'. It is a Norwegian name and his namesake is one of Sheldon's best friends from college.
Tyler loves to take baths and play in the sprinklers or water, read books, play with cars, trucks, and trains, explore, and watch movies. He loves dinosaurs and will growl most any time he sees a picture of one.
Adjusting to a second child has been difficult for me. Like his brother Cameron, he is a high maintenance child. It is very tough some days. Never-the-less, he is a joy and a wonderful addition to our family.
At times Sheldon and I discuss what it would be like if one or both of our children were to pass away. They are such a part of us. It is frightening to consider the hole that would be left in our hearts if they were to pass on. I believe the death of children has to be up there as one of the most trying things to deal with in this life. We pray we will be able to watch them grow and mature, to go their sports games (should they choose to play), to love, laugh, and cry with them.
There is nothing sweeter than seeing Cameron and Tyler play together. I love hearing them laugh. Thank you God for these wonderful little spirits.
