Dylan was such a champ pre-pretend-surgery. He was super smiley and happy even though he hadn't eaten for a really long time!
I was a little bummed about Dylan's surgery getting postponed. (I had mentally prepared for it, Nicki came to town, etc.) So, I decided to dress Dylan in his adorable pumpkin outfit (hard to be in a bad mood around a kiddo as cute as Dylan is). The weather was beautiful, so we took advantage and went on a long walk to the park! Dylan looked so cute and the weather was so perfect, we decided to do a photo shoot :)
Aunt Andrea taught Dylan the joy of swinging...he was a little unsure at first, but really enjoyed himself!!
Hanging with Aunt Nicki!
Applebee's had a trick-or-treating event on Wednesday before Halloween. Since Dylan's surgery was delayed, we ended up getting to go. I had a great time showing him off, and we all had a great time walking around. Andrea and Ella came and we trick or treated with my coworker Matt, his wife Jody their little pumpkin Kylie and Felicia!
This was actually a week before Halloween...we had a dress rehearsal to make sure the costume fit!
Dylan, Kylie and Ella
On Halloween (Dylan's 7 month birthday), Beth and Lars came over to my parents house to cheer on the Hawks. They also helped us set the scene for Dylan's 7 month picture which as mentioned above is my new favorite!!
You'll notice that Dylan and I are in coordinating shirts. A group of us girls went to all of the Iowa vs. Minnesota games in Minneapolis when I was in college. Kelly Robbs made us these shirts on our last trip senior year and decided that Dylan needed to be part of the clan. It is such a cute shirt and was such a thoughtful present!!
Beth teaching Dylan to say Go Hawks!!Hanging with Lars! Luckily, Dylan is super smiley so it doesn't usually take us long to get a good "month" picture. Good thing, because as soon as Dylan discovered the leaves, we couldn't keep them out of his mouth!
Here are just a few other of my favorite pictures from the last few weeks. I actually have more from Kylie's first birthday party (Dylan's first official party) etc. to get loaded but wanted to finally get these up! We head to Chicago this coming weekend for Carrie Mac's wedding. We're going to get to see most of the family as well on Sunday, so we're very excited for that.
What kiddo doesn't need his own robe?? A special hug for Papa!
Ella is very anxious for Dylan to learn how to crawl and walk. She'll point to him and say, "Dylan, crawl!". It's super cute, although I'm not sure she knows what she's in for once he can start chasing her around!
One of D's favorite accessories...mommy's phone! When it stops working, remind me that water isn't good for phones...Dylan puts it in his mouth every chance he gets!
