Still as Cute as Ever!!!

Sorry for the delay in posting. Work has been pretty busy lately, so it's been getting in the way of things :)

Dylan has been doing great. Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes for his surgery last week. The good news is I think this is all much harder on me and everybody around me than it is on Dylan. Dylan was a bit sleepy for the rest of the day on Monday after surgery, but was already smiling by Monday night. By Tuesday, he was pretty much back to his normal smiling/laughing/adorable self!

We head to Chicago this weekend to take Dylan to his first Cubs game ever. And through the generosity and kind heartedness of a lot of people (can't say thank you enough carrie mac!), we are going to get to go on the field on game day and say a little prayer for Zach and get a picture of Dylan. I'm most grateful to everybody that has been working on making this happen for the last few months. Nicole gets a lot of credit for coordinating everything we have going on in Chicago this weekend...helping me get ready to fly with Dylan...and most importantly taking amazing care of Dylan day in and day out.

We are also so excited to get to see lots of friends and family this weekend, many of them meeting Dylan for the first time. Of course, as with many things the trip will be bittersweet for me. I think it's the first time in almost 9 years that I'll be in Chicago without Zach. It will be tough, but I'm thankful for all of the support surrounding me!

Here are some pictures from the last few weeks. Look forward to some great shots from chi-town this weekend!!

One of Dylan's happiest places to be is in his Aunt Nicole's arms!!

Dylan loves when Liz O. visits...not just because she always brings us cookies!!!
Lars came to visit Dylan after surgery. He was smiling up a storm at her!!
Dylan a little sleepy during post-op. He would open his eyes every few minutes as if to make sure I was still holding him, and then would go back to sleep.
Nicki is turning into quite the chef this summer! On top of basically helping me with everything, she has perfected making b-day cakes and a ton of other fabulous meals!!
We got this carrier for the trip to Chi-town this weekend. Dylan loves being walked around in it!

Jessica came to visit us and brought us yummy Panera. Of course Dylan charmed her and was full of lots of smiles for her!!

These are a little late, but hey better late than never...for the fourth of July we went to the Lenexa parade (for those of you who don't know, Lenexa is where we live...and why haven't you visited yet?) We met my coworker and his wife and baby for the parade (thanks so much for saving us seats, Matt and Jody). Their little girl, Kylie, had a stint at Children's Mercy Hospital while we were there, so we have gotten to know each other quite well. The parade was fun, and Dylan loved being outside.

Enjoying the parade with grandma :)

Jody, Matt, Kylie, Bobbie and Dylan...isn't Kylie one of the cutest little girls you've ever seen!!

4th of July night at the Morris family house! Yes, that is Ella holding Dylan's hand. It was so cute! And yes, Ella's shirt says American Baby and Dylan's says Born in the USA.
