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!"
