Big Day

What a big day Dylan had yesterday! My cute little elf and I went to the mall to run an errand...

While there, we met Santa which was apparently very serious business...

Dylan was all smiles before. Would smile at me between photos. All smiles after. And got the biggest grin looking at the photos on the computer when we returned home. But, no, not even the slightest hint of a smile while I took pictures.

After we returned home, I put him on his back on a blanket in our living room to stretch out and play with his toys. I stepped away for moment to get something from the kitchen and when I came back, he was on his tummy! Dylan rolled over for the first time. A moment later he did it again (I saw it this time!) so I set up the video camera on a tripod next to him to try to capture another roll and sure enough...

It seems as though he's almost mastered it as he rolled over several more times - I even found him on his tummy in his crib a couple times overnight.


  1. The Santa photo is so cute. I like that you dressed him up kind of elf-ish! :)

    I love the little grunts of effort as he rolled over. Looks like he immediately figured out how not to get his arm stuck under him, so that's pretty good. Won't be long before he becomes mobile and you'll be chasing him all around the house.

  2. I just want to pinch those cute little cheeks.:) LOVE the first photo. It's so special when they hit those milestones. SO cute.

  3. I know I say it every time- but I swear he gets cuter by the day!! Love the little Santa hat and rolling over- how exciting!!

  4. Look at your CUTE little elf! Oh my gosh, he is just TOO adorable! :) And look at him roll over! Cameron has only done that once. I am going to try to persuade him to do it some more though. He gets SO close. :)

  5. This just warms my heart, hugs to everyone, Merry Christmas.

  6. Sarah he looks so proud of himself!! I love the santa photo.
