Dylan is 11 Months old!

Dear Dylan,

You are 11 months old and feeling less like a little baby every day.  You still smile and laugh constantly, but you have added a little crinkly nose to your laugh which is adorable and hilarious.
You spend quite a bit of your time investigating what is in our kitchen cabinets.  You are still a great sleeper and eater (both of which we appreciate very much!)  
You were not that interested in meeting the Easter bunny, but you did like to be around the other kids for the egg hunt.  You love music, baths, eggs, laughing, blocks, Simon, balls and countless other things.  Because you are such a happy little guy, it is hard to think of anything that you don't love at this point.
You have started scooting around the furniture and we know walking is right around the corner!

We love you more everyday!

Happy Birthday Popo

We celebrated Popo's birthday and Simon was not impressed because there were no candles and no cake, but it was nice to be together.

Easter Fun

We had so much fun celebrating all of our Easter activities this year.  These boys love any excuse for a treat or a funny hat or costume!

Good times with old friends

We went to visit our friends, The Klein Family.  We met them when Justin was a baby at Condell Hospital day care where I worked in high school.  Justin is now 16 years old (Fletcher 14 and Sebastian 6).  Our boys had fun playing with Sebastian and all of his toys.  Kristin and Keith have raised such kind and sweet young men.  We do not see them often, but we always love when we do!

Our little All Blacks

Simon and Dylan posing in their All Black finest.  Simon was 8 months old in his picture and Dylan was 11 months old, but still you can see quite the difference in their sizes!
 Doing Grandpa Joe proud!  These boys love to show off their Kiwi heritage.

Our little construction worker

The first Saturday of the month, Home Depot has a free class for kids to build something.  It is such a great idea!  Simon went and got to build and paint  birdhouse.  Home Depot is always a fun place for him to visit because of the tools and construction stuff everywhere.

A boy and his cat

Dylan loves Zoe and makes a cute kissing/clucking noise when she comes in the room.  To her credit, Zoe really loves the kids too.  She doesn't really want them to hold her, but she lets them pet her and she loves to sit in whatever room they are playing in.  She never runs away to hide and really loves to be part of the group.

Always ready for an adventure

Our boys are always ready to go out for an adventure.  Dylan already understands when we say "It's time to go outside" and scoots out to the entryway.  We have a constant stream of little handprints on our front window, but I don't mind....I love to see those little smudges and will miss them when these boys are big!

A mover and a shaker

Our little guy is more and more on the move every single day and he loves to scoot along whatever furniture he can find!

Swim Lessons for Simon

Simon has been taking swim lessons and loving it.  He particularly has fun playing with the other kids on the bench while he waits for his turn with the teacher. 

It is such great exercise and he comes home very tired.  Case in point, he fell asleep in the middle of eating his peanut butter!
