long overdue update!

Our last blog entry was (yikes!) in November and we (I mean, RYAN) didn't mention the newest member of our family: Rylie Rose.


Rylie arrived early in the morning on Oct 29th which was also Dylan's second birthday!

I started having contractions just before midnight while Ryan and Joel were enjoying beers in our newly finished (yay!) basement.  Ryan happened to mention to Joel that he hoped I wouldn't go into labor that night and knocked on a fake wooden end-table.  I guess that was a mistake...Anyway, Grandma Rosie got a phone call around 12:30 to please hurry and come over to take care of D while we went to the hospital.  I swear it took her forever to get here!  I later found out the new construction in Sartell had confused her in the middle of the night and she missed the turn into our neighborhood.  We arrived at the hospital at 1:30 and Rylie arrived at 2:55 am after a fast and furious delivery (I'm glad that's over with).






Celebrating D's 2nd bday
The cake was courtesy of Papa Barney and it was delicious! No, he didn't bake it but he did buy it and brought along some yummy ice cream to go with it. Note D's shirt says, "Big brother in charge!"

Dylan Plays the Harmonica

We were visiting Papa Bob and Grandma Trixie a couple weeks ago and Papa bob taught Dylan how to play the harmonica.  Here is Dylan's first concert with the help of Grandpa Bob.  The concert was in celebration of my uncle Tom, aunt Kelly and my cousin Kirby coming to town.

Summer Fun

Here are some pictures of Dylan having fun this summer.
Dylan riding the horse at the park by our house! 
Notice Dylan's lack of hair.  He got a hair cut Monday night!

D loves the slides!

Aunt Nikki took Dylan for a carousel ride at Como park over the weekend!

Dylan Learns to jump!

video

Here is a little video I shot yesterday. The neighbor taught Dylan to Jump off the bottom step. He tries so hard but still has not mastered the landing. In the third clip I told Dylan to jump REALLY high. He does not understand the difference between "Hi" and "high".

Enjoy.

Here is a little video of Dylan in the snow. He loves to eat the snow but hates to shovel.

OK so it has been a while since our last post but here is a cool video I shot today. Mollie picked up a new toy for our son. She knew he would love it since they have a singing and dancing dog at his daycare.
