The horror! THE HORROR!!!

Dashiell loves tomato sauce maybe just a bit too much. He especially loves how it feels in his hair, and all over his face, and down his arms...by the time dinner was done it he looked like a victim in a horror movie. All I can say is ewwww...

Okay the last picture was just thrown in to torture Dashiell later in life. Can't wait until he brings his first girlfriend home and we can break out the photo albums! :) I don't think that finger could get any further up there, but believe me, he keeps trying!

A day late

Happy Belated Father's Day! We all had a great day--Rick got to sleep in, we made blueberry pancakes, and we had dinner at the grandparents' house. Fun! We took a picture for grandpa Weber of Dashiell wishing him a happy father's day yesterday and it turned out so cute that I feel the need to share it! We made a print for grandpa Hanson too but he hasn't seen it yet--the Walgreen's "one hour" photo near our house took about six hours to process our order. Hmmph. It should be noted that grandpa Weber, in Bemidji MN, was able to pick up his photo order about 30 minutes after I placed it, so he received his greeting on time.

It's been a busy few weeks--a good portion of my family came out to visit us last weekend which was so much fun! I'm so glad they were able to make it out here and got to see Dashiell--they hadn't seen him since Christmas, which was about a million years ago in baby time. Seriously, he just started crawling at Christmas, now he RUNS (and just started walking backwards, which is too funny). And makes lots of noises like he's going to talk. Stuff he was no where near doing at Christmas. Plus he's grown like nobody's business in that time. I'm glad the next time we see them won't be so far off--we have plans to travel to Minnesota in about 2 months. But who knows what Dashiell will be doing then!

Dashiell year one - The Album!

We love books!

Dashiell showed us a new trick a couple of weeks ago that I finally got on video! We were heading upstairs to put on pajamas and I was reciting the book "Pajama Time" by Sandra Boynton. When we got to his room he headed straight for his bookcase and pulled the book off the shelf! We tried a few other books this week and he recognizes many of them--most of the Sandra Boynton books we have, "Gossie", "B is for Bear", and this "Easter Egg Hunt" pop-up book that he loves. The video shows me reciting "Pajama Time" in its entirety while Dashiell gets it off his shelf--he keeps getting distract though so it takes him a while to bring it to me. Needless to say it's a pretty long video!
