He may not be Irish, but he plays the part well

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day.

I don’t think Kyton has much actual Irish in him.  With the red hair and fair skin, that was burned yesterday, he looks Irish.

Here are a few photos of him playing in the dirt, his favorite place to play.

We could not find our son!

Kyton is a night owl, and we are getting too old (yep!) to stay up and party into the wee hours in the morning.  The other evening Dylan and I were both exhausted and as happens many nights, Kyton was running laps around the coffee table.  We were laying on the sofa watching him and dozing off.  At one point in time I realized that I no longer heard Kyton.  I woke Dylan and we both called his name and looked in all the rooms of our small house, but did not see him anywhere. 

After a bit of looking Dylan found him here…

Can you see him?  I have no idea why, but he decided to crawl under his crib and fall asleep.

For a second we thought about leaving him there since he was asleep, and getting him to sleep is always a challenge.  In the end we were worried that he’d wake up and hit his head, or somehow not know how to

get out.

Dylan moved the crib and got him out.

Unfortunately it woke him up, but such is life.

Easy Hummus Recipe

Hummus is one of my favorite snacks.  I recently discovered that it is actually easy and inexpensive to make.  This recipe makes twice what a tub of store bought hummus makes and costs much less to make.

Ingredients:
1 can of garbanzo beans (liquid saved)
3 tablespoons tahini
2 Tablespoons of lemon juice
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon of cumin
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of parsley
1 dash of paprika
1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes

Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until at desired consistency.  Add saved liquid if necessary.

Call Me… Maybe

It seems that he is drawn to technology, even Dylan’s super old phone.

It’s funny to see his perception of how we use the phone.

We joke that he is calling his baby friends to ask them to come play.

I don’t know that Dylan is aware I let Kyton use his phone.  Do you let your kid play with your phone?

Ryan & Charlotte

These are the two cutest kids.  They both have great personality too!  Charlotte LOVES having her picture taken.  She’d say:

“Come over here and take my picture dancing.”
“ How about I twirl and you take my picture.” 
“Want me to hold this while you take my picture?”

Ryan is about a week older than Kyton so it was fun spending time with him. He is an adventurous boy too, and is not scared of anything.  We had the perfect afternoon for gorgeous photos.
