Dylan is 3 Months Old!

Our 'newborn' isn't such a newborn anymore. Dylan is already three months old!

Starting to Play

He has officially entered the 'smiley' stage; when babies don't know a stranger and are happy to see every new face.

Old ladies love happy babies (@ our monthly nursing home visit)

Dylan is also adjusting well to being on the go so his sisters can get out. I can now navigate most outings fairly successfully with all three. My bar for public outbursts is necessarily a little lower, though!

Raspberry picking with the girls 

He seems much more aware of my presence than the girls were at his age. He wants to be held often (his right, of course) and wants me in his line of sight when he falls asleep. Perhaps this is because he knows he needs 'protection' from the girls =)

Dylan is definitely an 'easy' baby, though, and we feel very lucky with our little man.

I don't care that it's 85 degrees in here; hold me =)

If you get up I'll refuse to fall asleep! (1 min between photos)

6 Days & 5 Nights

The kids and I just managed our first week alone quite well. While Alex was off getting work done in sunny California we had our own fun in the sun. A little extra daycare helped me out and there was a lot of water fun in the mix.

Bubbles in the bubble bath!

The girls were thrilled this afternoon when the surprise at lunch was Daddy; fresh from the airport. Then it was straight home for naps. Only two people actually fell asleep...

Recovering from the red eye

We are *trying* to be better about giving Dylan bottles every so often. It seems to be one too many things to remember since this afternoon's bottle was only his third, ha! 

After we gave up and put it down Cora decided to help out. Aww, cute. It reminded me of when Noelle helped with Cora's bottles. My, how fast things change!
