I think Dane was having trouble connecting to the internet here.
Dane also has a popper toy that he loves to play with.
We had some great weather last week and Dane wanted to run outside in the yard. He was having so much fun and as you can see he was getting a little hot. We took off his shirt so he could cool down a little.
Our sprinklers started and it was a new experience for Big D. He was cool standing in the middle of the yard until the sprinklers started getting him...then it wasn't so cool. After he got startled, he ran towards Shelly and I, but as he was coming at us, the sprinkler head was continuing to rotate right at him. The closer he got to us, the closer he got to the sprinkler and the more forceful it was hitting him. You can see how unexcited he was about the whole process in the last picture.
And what is the perfect post "sprinkler in your gut" event? That's right, a Popsicle. Dane loved it!
We babysat Simon (Dane's Cousin) while my sister was out of town. Dane loved hanging out with him. Simon isn't crawling just yet and Dane would run in circles around him while listening to his music. You can see D running behind Simon.
Last year, Dane wasn't fond of tunnel slides, but that has all changed over the winter. He is no longer afraid of them.
Dane got his third haircut. This time he was all about helping out.
Looks like Dane is already starting to pick on his younger sibling. That, or he just likes the lumbar support.
Dane was bear crawling on the floor, but had his head on the ground as well. It left a nice little mark on his forehead that looked remarkably like Harry Potter's scar.
He loves sitting in his rocking chair!
We went to South Dakota last weekend to watch Shelly's younger sister Leslie compete in the Howard Wood Dakota Relays. Of course she won with a vault of 13 ft 8 in, breaking the meet record and the stadium record. What a stud, we're crossing our fingers for London in 2012! Way to go Les!
We wanted to get some photos of Shelly through this second pregnancy. We got some during Dane's nap on Sunday. Isn't she an absolutely beautiful pregnant woman?
Only 3 more weeks until we meet baby Deuce. C-section is scheduled for May 27th!!!
