A Good Day

I knew yesterday was going to be a good day, when I came downstairs in the morning to find this...

The two of them were engrossed, watching Dylan video from a few months
ago, on the computer. Honestly, sometimes when I look at the two of
them together, I have to walk out of the room, and compose myself,
because they are so darn cute.
In spite of the Blizzard that was supposed to be hitting the Burgh at
that very moment, (it was raining), Dylan and I ventured out for a
playdate with reality star Alexis from Burgh Baby.
I tried not to be star struck, and she mostly played it cool herself,
choosing to mostly talk to her agent. That's okay, I WILL win her over,
and make her LOVE me, (not in a stalkerish way, mind you). Dylan played
it cool, himself, keeping his flirtatious nature in check.
The two adults didn't get to talk much, since every time I would get
settled in to discuss quantum physics or existentialism, (since that is
what I discuss on his playdates, you know), Dylan would take off
running to another section of the building. Every once in a while,
Alexis would come looking for him, and he would promptly and rudely
leave the area. Not to worry, though, she got him back later, when we
left, by not saying goodbye, or even waving at him. Just when we got
settled into the car, and were about to brave the treacherous ride home
in the Blizzard(it had finally started snowing), Alexis appeared at the
window because "she was upset that she didn't say goodbye to Dylan".
Too cute.
Jim got his work done while we were out, and then we spent the rest of
the evening being amused by Dylan doing things like this...

Can you hear him saying "AHH" after he takes a sip?

This kid is not a homebody! He wanted to go back out, and kept trying
to put his coat back on. Maybe he felt bad that he had played it so
cool with Alexis, and wanted to go find her?

Oh my gosh! The sip "ah" thing is not just Jonathan! It cracks me up how similar these two are! Jonathan does this too -- I couldn't figure out where he got it. I thought maybe his dad and I were doing it or something...I couldn't figure it out. Now I know...he was channeling Dylan -- even though I don't believe in such things as channeling. But still....weird!

OK. Just played the last one too ... they are twins....the whimpering when they want you to do something for them....Gave me chills. And made me sad that I didn't wait to see my little one before coming to work today. Instead, I let him sleep in. *sigh*

You're right--it was a good day. Until I got home, that is. It was way more fun hanging out with you and Dylan than it was back at home with the Grumpmaster.

My new favorite thing about Dylan is his spontaneous smile thing. You know, how he just randomly looks at you, cracks the biggest grin imaginable, then continues on with whatever he was doing. It's charming and sweet and slightly suspicious, all at the same time. ;-)

BTW, I want to reach through the computer monitor and put poor Dylan's coat on for him. How could you just sit there and let him be tortured like that? lol

You're right - that first picture is just too cute. I love to come in the room and find hubby and kids cuddled up reading books or watching a movie or sleeping.
