The Boys!!!

It has been a while...as I'm sure you can guess, we've been busy. We have a ton of new pictures, but just haven't had a lot of time to post them. We'll try and get better.

Here are a couple cute pictures of Little E sleeping on my shoulder. There is nothing better than when a newborn sleeps on your chest. It's my absolute favorite.


One Dane's new favorites is running in circles around his toy computer. He'll play the same song over and over, "This old man, he played one..." Then he'll ask us to whistle the tune as he runs. After a little bit, he'll ask us to take off his clothes and he'll continue running in his diaper. Here are couple snapshots and a video showing the whole process.


Here is the video...



With the weather finally getting nice here in Minnesota, Dane has thoroughly enjoyed his swing and loves to go really high. He'll have a great time at the amusement park rides when he gets older. The pic below gives a great perspective on just how high he gets.


After one of our recent swinging sessions, Dane wanted to go on a walk and was getting impatient with Dad, who kept stopping to take pictures.

A few days ago, Dane said "Wanna hold Lil' E" So we set him on the couch and put Erik in his lap. As you can see, he's already begun torturing him by pulling his hair.


Mom stealing in a couple late night kisses.


And here is Dad with "The Boys." It is so fun to say "The Boys!"

Im dying! That video is hilarious. From the shirt off, to the running, to the whistling. So much going on its hard to get my head around it all. Got to watch it again!!

I need to add... Thank God Flip video cameras weren't invented when I was Dane's age. My parents would have played videos like this at EVERY family function if they existed.

You're so right about having a baby sleep on your chest. It was wonderful to hold Little E and have him do that. And oh,how MANY times I've thought about D running around the computer when I was there last week, not to mention his playing the CD's and me bringing up the Gummy Bear song for him on YouTube (sorry guys)! The memories are precious and make me smile... I'll be posting a wee-oh soon that I made of Dane "driving"... watch for it! Love you guys, and miss you SOOOO much!
