~ Our Baby Boy is Growing Up ~

It's amazing - we post pictures of Dale and people want to come visit. I can't blame them of course - Dale is wonderful. He loves to play, especially outside and has decided that running away from us is hilarious. In the park the past few days he's even decided that trying to fake out Ryan like you would in football is so funny. He starts to laugh each time that he changes directions and eventually ends up laughing so hard that he falls down. Silly boy.

Dale loves to play the piano. He will grab on of our thumbs and take us to the piano, so that we can set him on the bench. This works reasonably well, the biggest problem - if we turn our backs for even a moment he climbs up onto the piano and tries to crawl along the keys.

I was trying to get a picture of Dale's bedhead after his nap, but he wouldn't let me get a side picture. He often wakes up with a bedhead mohawk after his naps. His hair is pretty thin still, but in the back it is coarse enough that it sticks out almost all of the time and there is a slight curl in all of it, showing mostly after naps and baths.

I LOVE!!!! this picture!

As you can see above, we love the park - we are so fortunate to live within walking distance of the preschool/kindergarten building so that we can use their playground. Dale loves it. The past few days when we've gone there have been little boys just older than Dale and he had simply followed them around trying to do whatever they were doing. No pictures obviously, as that would be creepy.
Dale loves to pretend to help in the kitchen. Because Daddy wears an apron a lot when he works in the kitchen, Dale has decided to wear one as well. He knows where it is kept in the kitchen and he will grab it from the drawer and bring it to me to put it on him. Next time we are close to a fabric store I plan on picking up some fabric and making him his own apron. Then I can use mine.

Being cute is so tiring. Love you all!
