oh dylan…
this is what i walked into a few minutes ago…..dylan has this undying fascination with my purse and all it’s contents. it usually is hard to be mad at him when he empties my wallet out across the floor, trys on my sunglasses leaving behind his cute little fingerprints, hides my lipgloss behind the couch, all while chewing on a few important reciepts. i mean i always end up with a cleaned out, reorganized purse. and i can thank dylan for that.

i just LOVE this little guy….
his smile…
his giggle….
his little white body (that is growing by the minute!)…
his big lips…
his teeth…
his beautiful blue eyes…
the way his little voice sounds when he has discovered a new word…
the way he asks for a “huv”….
when he tell me “i yuy you” in a sing-song voice…
how he body slams me with his belly if i am sitting on the ground…
how determined he is to be a “bi boy” like brother..
how at 22 months we can already tell he has his daddy’s arm!
how when he wants more of something he tells me “mas”
(i think he might be bilingual!)…
how he looks at night when he’s sleeping, so peaceful and angelic….
how he waits for his daddy by the door in the evenings….
i love that he’s my baby

harvest days parade…..
eli’s preschool marched in the annual battleground harvest days parade on saturday. he really wasn’t sure what was going on. he kept asking where we were going, and when we saw his friend carly, on the side walk, watching, he cried because he wanted to go with her! it was an experience, anyway! he’ll know better next year what to expect! dylan really got into it, he was waving at everyone, and saying “hi” to the people watching the parade. i think he thought it was ALL for him!

booties…..
i know everyone is making these little shoes, so i had to try my hand at it. i’ve actually had the martha stewart pattern for about three years, but i just never made them, and then hannah and i came across this heather bailey pattern. when hannah was here i bought everything to make them, and just got around to it yesterday. they are seriously so easy, and now my brain is in overdrive with all these ideas. it makes me want to have another baby, just so i can put these on them!!! in the mean time, nomi is going to have a lot of shoes!

okay, a little disclaimer…..eric snapped this picture, and a few others while i was working my BUTT off, (he worked very hard, tooo!) our back yard needed some changes…..so we thought with the nice weather we would take it on. it was very nicely landscaped when we moved in four years ago, but NOT very kid friendly. there was pea gravel right next to bark, and a very nice cedar arbor with a swing in the corner. it was fine up until eli started using the swing as a , well, swing, and dylan decided that rocks were MMMmmmmm!
