Even Superman can have a bad hair day

I promise I did nothing to his hair to make it stand up like this. He woke up Sunday morning and it was standing straight up. It was hilarious. When I asked him about it he said "my hair got tall".

2 Months Old

Dylan is 2 months old today. Time is really flying. Unfortunately for him we went for his 2 months check up and he had to get immunization shots. He also got weighed and measured. He weighed in at 12lb 15oz which puts him in the 79th percentile for weight. No surprise there. Emma Caroline didn't weigh that until she was 4 months. His length was 24.5 inches which puts him in the 93rd percentile. The pediatrician was impressed that he is already sleeping from 10pm to 6am. All I know is that it helps me feel so much more sane. All in all he is a big fella and still as sweet as can be.

This week at our house

It has just been a pretty normal week but here are a few highlights. Knox got to take a bath all by himself, a pretty big deal when you always have to share the space with your sister. He put on her goggles and began to "swim". It was just too cute for me to not snap a few pics. Matt reading a bedtime story to all of the kids. EC will take any excuse to hold Dylan. In case you are wondering, Matt and Knox are yelling "cheese".
I love these next 2 pics not just because they are of my sweet little one but because they were taken by Emma Caroline who just LOVES to take pictures. I never know what random pictures of the garbage can or a door that I might find on my camera if I leave it laying around. So I thought I would put that desire to good use and have her take some of Dylan. Here are a few.

Knox and Dylan

Just wanted to add a few pics for the grandparents and anyone else who do not get to see my kids as they grow. Here is the most recent angel face in our house. (I know, I sound like a mom) The first smile caught on camera.
My 2 sweet boys

This was not planned or asked for. Just a spontaneous kiss I happened to catch.

A busy week

The end of last week was pretty busy but a lot of fun. First, I got to attend a Mother's Day Tea at Emma Caroline's school. They sang for us and gave us gifts. They also served us our dessert. It was a sweet time. It also happened to be on my birthday. Then the following Saturday there was a Ladybug Luncheon at our church that Emma Caroline and I attended together. Here we are just before leaving to go.
Then on Mother's Day they had baby dedication. On top of all that my sweet husband has cooked and cleaned, taken me out, let me go out alone, watched the kids etc..... It was a great week. (and never have I posted so many pictures of myself. At least you know I'm still around)

Emma Caroline turns 6

Our sweet girl turned 6 at the end of April. She actually asked for the bat and balls and Daddy was thrilled. They have gotten out in the yard to hit a few times and she loves it. The same little girl who wanted the bat and ball loves everything girly. She got several barbies and lots of Hello Kitty things. She was thrilled with all of it.
We had a party for her and her friends at Pump it Up. I think they all had a great time.

EC and all of her friends after playing on the inflatables for and hour and a half. They were actually tired and ready for a break - Wow!!
I will probably say it every year but I can't believe how fast they grow. My baby is 6!! You are a sweet little girl, EC, and you have been a blessing to us. We love you!!

The Big Sister

I had no idea she would love him so much. But I sure am glad.

The New Sprinkler

EC and Knox got a new sprinkler from GeGe and DeDe who were here for a visit. We finally had some nice weather for them to try it out. It was a big hit, as you can see.
