Wordless Wednesdays - Random Cuteness

Merry Christmas everybody!!!! Hope you all have a very safe and happy holiday. I'm looking forward to some much needed time off of work (and maybe even some blog time!)!!

Here are a couple of cute pics from the last week :)

So cute!!! Helping me celebrate my birthday :)

I taught Dylan how to say "cheers"...might have been a mistake, he wants to do it all the time, now!!

Dylan is very into saying cheese and giving huge grins! It's super cute, although hard to he is posing this morning at breakfast for a pic mail to Aunt Ni Ni :)

Wordless Wednesdays - Anta, Anta!!!

That's how Dylan says Santa :) And he knows that he says, "HO HO HO!!" He loves wearing his Santa pjs (they've even become more popular than his ball pajamas) and he likes talking about Santa. When it comes to seeing Santa (or more precisely getting his picture taken with Santa), he's not a huge fan. Our first adventure was when we flew home from Chicago a few weeks ago. Southwest had Santa at a gate and they were taking you can see below D was not the biggest fan!

I had decided that I wasn't going to force the issue and make him go again, but he kept asking to see Santa so we went to Bass Pro Shop last night. D was all about being there, hanging in the tent (that Santa is going to bring him!) and making ornaments with Aunt Ni Ni...however, once again when it came to sitting on Santa's lap it was a no-go...maybe next year :)

Wordless Wednesdays - Aunt Ni Ni's New Pad :)

We headed to Chicago this weekend to check out Aunt Ni Ni's (D's name for Nicki) new pad (yes, that means she's moving out, but luckily has lots of room in her new condo and we have an open invitation to visit!). Dylan was his normal charming self on the plane! It's so nice to fly with such an easy going baby! And, of course, I eat up all of the he's so cute and he's so good comments from strangers :)

We got to Chicago on Friday night and after our arrival it proceeded to snow about 6 inches. We put unpacking/organizing on hold for Saturday morning in lieu of playing in the park! We had a great time, and D seemed to love how fast he went down the slides (it seems the snow suit combined with some snow on the slide led to very fast fact the adults had a hard time landing on our feet a lot of the time!).

We spent Saturday afternoon unpacking/cleaning and organizing the kitchen and on Saturday night some of Zach's family came over to hang out. We had a great time making cookies and playing the Wii.

I know I am WAY behind on's on my extensive list of things to check back, I promise there will be lots of fun things posted soon!!

enjoying a PB&J on the plane :)

Lunch at Aunt Ni Ni's new pad!

Wordless Wednesays - The Big 2-0!!!

Yes, I realize that most people would think 20 years not 20 months, but hey :) I can't believe D is already 20 months old! He continues to be so fun to hang out with!!! He's got such good personality and is very happy! If you ask him how old he is, he'll tell you 2...mostly because that's what Ella says! He's starting to act a bit like a 2 year old in terms of his sneakiness and his unhappiness when he doesn't get his way! His 3 favorite words are: Ella, Papa and no! He can say more words than I can count and seems to understand almost everything we say to him. We had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends and are looking forward to Christmas!

We decided since 'Da Bears are in 1st place, D should sport that shirt for his picture this month. It's also fitting, b/c D is obsessed with anything sport related. He loves balls and would rather watch basketball or football on TV than anything else...definitely his daddy's little man.

Check back soon for the Halloween extravaganza! I have all the pictures posted, just need to add captions/stories :)
