Fun in the Sun

Dylan and Sydney having lots of FUN in the beautiful Georgia weather! The weather is perfect right now, and we are taking full advantage. Dylan can't ever have enough cars near him.

Last week when Dylan saw Cameron mowing the lawn he ran to get his toy lawn mower and went outside only to mow side by side with him for about 30 minutes.

G-mama and G-papa moved to Georgia last week. I can’t believe it! They are staying here for at least for 6 months and we could not be more excited! Dylan was so happy to see them and sing all of his favorite songs to them. He has been so much fun lately. Dylan loves to sing about EVERYTHING such as trees, school buses, racing cars, the poop on his finger,the fan in his room, etc. It is pretty funny. He is going to be the next Justin Timberlake…bad lyrics but great booty shaker. You should see him dance, it is hysterical. He puts his hands on his hips and stomps around shaking his booty. Dylan is also getting so smart! Grandma babysat last week and was so amazed that when she was reading him books from the library (that we had only had for a week) he was telling her the story and was pointing out and distinguishing the bulldozer, monster truck, and crane. Grandma was just calling everything a "big truck" and Dylan was NOT satisfid :). Very cute. He also started saying "many" all the time. "There are many dump trucks daddy" or "I want many treats". It was so cute.

Our friends gave us some adjustable rollerblades and we decided to try it for fun last week with Dylan. He loved them! He is nowhere near able to do it on his own, but we take him down the driveway and he LOVES it.
Sydney is still a little pill. She is almost 6 months and still refuses to take a bottle, or syringe, or spoon fed milk..URGH! For our 7 year anniversary I bought Cameron and I tickets to his favorite Broadway play, Les Mis, but when it came down to it, we couldn't go. :( We just couldn't leave our baby girl home for that long with no food. It was sad, but I am looking forward to going to Wicked next month with a bunch of my girlfriends. I am working on getting Sydney eating enough food by then to keep her busy without mommies milk. She is eating only a tiny bit off food these days because her digestive system isn't working that well yet. Look at how pretty she is even when she's got a messy little face. She is beautiful and she looks NOTHING like me :(

The daily grind

Sydney is finally eating real food. Woohoo! Here is a cute picture of her eating...what a mess! I think that spoon feeding a baby has got to be one of my least favorite things about motherhood, especially when your two year old is constantly asking to be fed like a baby too. Ugh!Dr. DD loves his new scrubs that grandma made him. He and Dr. Daddy put thier matching outfits on and do surgery to each other and the stuffed animals. It is super cute. When I hurt myself (which you all know happens all too often) I ask Dr. DD to fix it and he is more than happy to put on the scrubs and go to work. Thanks G-mama!

In other news, Dylan has taken to music much like his daddy. When we are in the car the radio or cd must ALWAYS be on. When a slow song comes on he gets mad and screams, "no slow song mommy, play the daddy song" (which is sadly for all you country haters out there , "The day Before You" or "Break Away" by Rascal Flatts), or he'll say "no mommy, the ABC song" (for Jackson 5 of course). It is super cute, but gets pretty annoying to hear the same songs every time I get in the car. Cameron is trying to get him into Beck...its funny to hear him try and sing that. Nice. Speaking of which, here is another ABC song, Cameron liked this one better so I figured I would post it. Dylan is so tired of singing this song for us that now he just says it as fast as he can so that he can get two fruit snack treats. What a cutie. Also, here he is trying to sing Twinkle Twinkle little star, I love it, but his face looks so torn up...I promise we don't beat him!

As for me, I just finished the Twilight book series by Stephanie Meyer. I don't know what it is but in the last few months I have been obsessed with reading (maybe because it is the only thing that brings me utter peace and quiet at the end of the day). Anyway, I just finished the Twilight series that everyone was talking about and I just think it is so strange how that series became so popular amongst adults. I understand it's for young adults and I can see how they can get into it, but adults? You would think we would need a little more than vampires to get us dedicated to over 2000 pages of reading. I don't know, but I enjoyed it none the less especially because a few people have started calling Sydney "Nessie". Love it! I am excited to see how the movie turns out, although I am expecting it to be disappointing (what a pessimist I am).

So yeah, I need a new good book to read, if you have any recommendations for me please let me know. I read the Emily Giffin series (Something Borrowed, Something Blue and Baby Proof) a few weeks ago and those are really good for any of you women out there.

A day at the Lake

We were able to go with some of our friends (the Henrichsens, Silvas, and the Andersons) to their lake house this Labor day weekend. We had a blast tubing, wake boarding, and water skiing. Dylan loved riding on the tube and going "fast", and Sydney's crying was cured for a day since the boat put her right to sleep. I am not kidding, she was the happiest Sydney I have EVER seen. It was great. I need to get me a boat!
Dylan loves his Aunt Ali.
Mommy, Dylan, Madison, and Scotlynn
Daddy, Dylan, Andrew, Braden and Logan
After we got Dylan and Braden off the boat, Cameron and Andrew, and Logan and I had a contest of who could stay on their tube and knock the others off...best of 5. Of course Logan and I won, we are amazing what can I say? I just can't believe non of us broke any bones especially with the tubes flipping on each other.
