It's been a while since I've posted! We've had a cold off and on for a couple weeks. Just when we think it's gone, it shows up again!
We went to my sister Sarah's high school graduation last weekend. It went pretty good. Dawson got pretty bored, so we all took turns holding him. That lasted until the rest of the ceremony. The Open House went good too. He got a ton of mosquito bites though!
Today we went to a Chinese Buffet. Dawson is usually very good and quiet in restaurants, but today he decided to change that! He was quiet at first, but then he started babbling. After that he started squeeling and scrieking at the top of his lungs! It was so loud! Everyone in our section was looking at us! Luckily most just thought it was funny. His new thing is listening for an echo. If we go into a new place, he often lets out a yell. If it echos at all, then the really loud noise starts! He makes as much noise as he can until we leave the echo-y area. Makes bathrooms really "fun"! Often there's someone there waiting to see the cute baby who was squacking! Our meal ended up being free! Dan helped someone work on their car for 3 hours today, and refused to take money for it. The guy offered to take us out to eat, but he said we're already going somewhere. Apparently he told the guy where he was going, because he showed up and paid for our bill! That was nice of him.
Dawson and I went to a parade in my hometown on thursday. We met up with Jen, who I met on iVillage. She has 6 kids, including a baby Dawson's age. It was a lot of fun. I'm going to Reese's first birthday party next weekend! I can't believe our babies are almost 1!
Here's a pic of Jen holding Reese and Me holding Dawson.
One of the things thrown at the parade was this little beach ball! Dawson loved it!
