This little boy has discovered watermelon and LOVES it! I put it in his teething ring and he just goes to town on it! I can't wait to buy more fruit to put in it. We went to the doc. today because he hasn't been acting himself. Waking up more at night and more whiny during the day. He has a cold. So to say the least we have been lounging in our jammies and watching some cartoons! Hopefully the weather gets nice so we can go outside and bake the cold out of him!

Spring happenings...

We are so lucky to have a park so close to our house! We have finally been meeting some friends so we meet up with them at the park! We had such a great time watching the kids play. Dane's new favorite thing is to swing! He just giggles while we push him. As we were leaving my friend Lindsey was saying good bye to him and he waved back at her! Gotta love the firsts!
We are finally getting our yard put together! We went and got some flowers to plan the other day. Dane even helped while he dug in the dirt and sucked on rocks! Haha
...and yes that is our grass coming up! We hydro seeded it 2 weeks ago and we can't believe how fast it is coming!! We have just a few things to do in our yard like plant a few bushes and hook up our drip system around the house.
HURRAY for summer....can't wait for the warm weather!!

Sesame Street

As we were going through our morning routine, I looked over at Dane and he was engrossed in Sesame Street! He would look at me and then move his arms back and forth and scream! Man we just love this little boy!

To my MOM!

Seriously, my mom is the best! The other day my door bell rang and it was a box of flower...as I opened up the box there was a card that read "Thanks for being such a great mom to our little Dane!" Wow can we say that tears came to my eyes! She is such a great example in so many ways!!

Tooth Fairy

Dear Tooth Fairy,

Thank you so much for FINALLY coming to visit Dane so that his teeth will come in! We officially have at least 1 tooth on its way. Boy are mom and dad happy! This has been a game that we have been playing for 4 months now. We will be excited for your return back to pick up that same tooth in 5 or so years!


(Dane has been such a trouper the last few days! As you can tell from this picture, he is constantly drooling everywhere. I get him up from his nap and within minutes his shirt is soaking wet. He won't let me take a picture. He will occasionally let me take a peak. Must be a boy thing!!)

8 Months

Dane turned 8 months last week! Wowzers, where does time go? I had to take his picture in these awesome boots. This was the first thing we got for him a year ago when we found out we were having a BOY!! The monkey is measuring 30 1/2 inches long and weighing at 23.6 lbs!
Here are a few things he is doing:
*says Mamama, dadada, papapa & bababa
*roars like a lion if you roar at him
*thinking about crawling
*wants to try EVERYTHING that we are eating
*loves to eat in general
*sticks his tongue out
*hates lotion and getting dressed
*loves to take Brent's hat off his head
*super ticklish on his thighs, up the side of his body and in his neck
*loves to cuddle
*plays peck a boo
*weaves his arms back and forth when he gets excited and screams
