Happy Father's Day

Dillon has the best daddy any kid could ask for...he looks up to him so much and they have such a special bond. I hope they are always close and have a great relationship as Dilly grows up!
This year, daddy got a new lawn mower a few weeks ago and Dillon made him a cute framed picture of his hand print inside of daddy's and a card with his hand print painted on. I was impressed he actually sat down with me and helped traced his hand, glue on the hands and paint the card. He was so excited to give it to him!

We love you, daddy! Thanks for being such a wonderful hubby and daddy to your little family!  :)

Water Fun

Don't know if you've noticed, but its been pretty hot lately. Shoooooweeeee!!! Trust me when I say we don't do well with the heat. Us pale folks (not Evan, he has nice tan skin) can't be in the sun long without turning into lobsters and poor Dillon gets so over heated. The only way to stay cool is with a constant stream of water or just a whole crap load of a pool! This week, if we have been outside, we had water there as our friend. Dillon's baby pool on the deck, the spray ground at the park (lots of fun with his play group!) and his first trip this year to the big pool. He loves the water but takes a little while to warm up to the big pools. We jumped and swam and tried to kick but he wanted to cling onto me for a good 20 minutes and told me "all done" about 20 times. I ignored his objections, telling him he really loved it, he just didn't know it yet and he eventually figured out mommy was right. haha. He just didn't want me throwing him up in the air quite yet.  Once we found some toys, he loved scooping the water and splashing with his cousin. What he doesn't know is that he will be a little fishy soon and swim like his mommy. :)   I think our next water adventure will be the au naturale route and we will visit Jordan Lake (or is that a man made lake? I haven't a clue) then maybe a water park? And the beach!  Fun summer plans ahead to keep us from passing out!!!

Dillon {18 months}

We are at the half way mark to two years old!!  It will be here before we know it, and so will the attitude...which I am a little afraid of since he is starting to show his "true colors" haha. He is still my sweet boy though!!  Here is a quick update on our Dilly...

Evan took D to the doctor by himself for the first time and they came back in one piece. D weighs 24 1/2 lbs and is 35 inches tall!!!!! I think basketball may also be in his future if he keeps growing like this. Man, no wonder he can reach EVERYTHING. And no wonder strangers think he is two...until he opens his mouth, haha.

Speaking of speaking, he is talking non stop all day. Well, I take that back. He is either talking or laughing, one of the two. Some new words are: Thank you (he is getting very good that this without me asking him to say it!), right back, dada's truck (he's a little obsessed), lap (to read books), yellow, purple, blue, Elmo, wubbie (his blankie), poop (he points to his butt), yucky (he also points to his butt) and a lot of stuff we have no idea but he sure does!  He knows the animal sounds for the dog, cat, cow, duck, elephant, goat and sheep. He can also count to one! haha

His stranger anxiety is gone and he is back to being Mr Social while we are out. His favorite thing to do is say "buh bye" and a big "muuuuuaaaahhhhh" to people when we are leaving.

Our garbage disposal has become a pickier and lighter eater, which I am hoping is just a phase. I think he would rather be playing than eating these days.

I think he has figured out that not everything in life is funny like...eating dog food isn't funny, thats gross. Rolling around while I change a poopy diaper isn't funny...thats messy and a big no no. Daddy farting isn't funny...its stinky...well, that's still funny to him. lol

Some of his favorite things are books, puzzles, the pool, anything outside, riding in the car, his wagon and trike, daddy's truck and bubbles.

He continues to be our happy, crazy (mama's) boy with a big heart.  :)
