The news you have all been waiting for!

The bridge is OPEN!  Its not technically "done" yet, but we are able to use it now.  They should be getting started with paving the road soon we hope.  We'll keep you posted.  We know how much this means to our city visitors - shaves a whole 12 minutes off your trip!

Well, it was brought to my attention by Auntie 'Nae that I had not posted about Dylan's 2 year check up stats.  Bad mommy!!  So here's the info:   

Dylan is: 

34 1/2 inches tall (80th percentile)
26 pounds (50th percentile)

I thought there was  head measurement listed on this sheet, but I guess not.  His head is large.  There, now you all know!  He sure has come a long way in 2 years.  He started out at 21 1/2 inches and 8 pounds 5 ounces.  Crazy!  And to think that his new baby sister is a 1/2 inch long now!  She's got a lot of catching up to do.

Yes, I'm throwing my prediction out there.  Its a girl.  How do I know, you ask?  Well, judging by the fact that I had NO morning sickness at all with Dylan (a boy, duh!), one would have to think that this must be a girl in my belly.  Cuz I definitely have morning sickness this time and it BLOWS!  That and my mother's intuition (which was right with Dylan, I might add) tells me that this is the case too.  We shall see in January if I am right!  

Thats it for now!  

Adios Goodbye!

Another weekend away.

Well, we were at Jon and Renae's again this past weekend.  We were there to celebrate Daniel's 1st birthday!  I suppose I can no longer call him "baby Daniel" as he is now a big boy.  Sigh!  Anyway, DD had lots of fun playing with all the kids - especially Jenson, who was his playing "slave" all weekend long.  We ate lots of food, hung out, did a bit of shopping, visited Melissa and Andy's abode, celebrated Big D's bday and also visited a pumpkin "patch."  Here are a couple of pics from the "patch." 
You just know that D has to pull the wagon.  I like to ride.
I want this pumpkalin, Mom!
And this was today.  I had him try on his new coat and hat and wouldnt ya know it - they match his snow boots!  Stylin'!  He seemed to like his new coat and called himself "cute" when he saw himself.  He insisted that I take a timer picture of us.  Apparently, my ploy to get more pictures of the two of us is paying off!  Problem is that its always when I look like pooooo.  Oh well.

Thats it for now.  Eric is in Connecticut (for those wondering, yes, DD will say Connecticut too) until Wednesday night, so its been kinda lame without him.  However, the road seems to be coming along swimmingly, so thats been some good entertainment for us.  We sat out on a cooler for a good hour today watching the semi's go by with dirt.  His idea, not mine.
