Bigger and bigger

At Dylan’s 6 month check-up he weighted in at 18 pounds, 2 ounces.  If he keeps gaining 2 pounds per month he will have outgrown his first car seat by November.  He’s wearing a lot of 9 month clothes, both because he’s a chunky guy and because the cloth diapers make him extra bulky.  I’m going to have to buy some bigger and warmer pajamas now as we are  having unseasonably cool nights.  But for the most part Dylan is rockin’ in awesome hand-me-down clothes.  Thanks to all our benefactors with bigger kids!

East Coast Travels Part 1

We just got home after a 3 week trip to Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York to introduce Dylan to many family and friends.  We had a wonderful time.  Thank you to everyone who hosted us!  Below are  photos from the trip.  You can click on a picture to see and download a larger file.

I will post these in more or less chronological order in batches.
