Well apparently we have a phone number one number off from a vet hospital, an electric sales company, and a plumber. A few months ago, we received three back to back calls around 5 AM... it was annoying, but neither one of us wanted to get up to see who it was. so we didn't. Later, probably a MONTH later, I finally checked out messages. I felt so bad. It was a woman who's dog or something had been bitten by something and was bleeding. Needless to say, she was REALLY pissed at the vet because he just wasn't calling her back. Then I wonder to myself..." did you NOT hear, You've reached the Fenner's we're not here please leave a message?" Did she think she heard the vet on the voicemail? I guess so. So either way, I hope her animal was alright!
Earlier this week, we got a voicemail saying that this company was receiving tons of our faxes. They were in fact not a vet, but an electrical sales company, so that I should tell whoever was sending faxes for me to get the correct number!;) When she didn't even have the right one!
Then this morning three consecutive phone calls again. On the third I finally answered... this was the conversation. " Hello", "yeah this is Suzan Wells, I think I have the wrong number but, is this the plumbers office?" Nope, you've got the wrong number" Oh ok thanks. Then what did she do? CALLED RIGHT BACK!!!!!! This time I didn't answer though! GEEZ... That doesn't make me want to check to see who is calling anymore!

So, I know it isn't much, considering I took a sewing class in college, but here is a burp cloth made from scratch!!! We got a sewing machine so that I could make our own window treatments, which I haven't done yet, but I've made two burp cloths and a taggie blanket. One day maybe I'll get to those window treatments!!
Adam's project. A chalkboard for some coloring fun!!! we used chalkboard paint, it was pretty easy!!! It also works well, we already tried it out!!! ( This room is more for us for the next few years then for Dylan!!)
And last but not least.. My project. It's not completely done, so here is a little taste if you will...
So there you have it.. put it together in your mind if you must, but I will post pictures when it's all done.. hopefully in the next week or two!!!:) Oh.. I also ordered P90X so we'll see how that goes!;)

After a long busy day yesterday ( Play room is coming right along, and the nursery finally has a bookcase.... That I put together mostly on my own!) we dropped the little kiddo off with Grandma, and headed out. We had eaten a late lunch, so we weren't terribly hungry, so we stopped at Northpark and got a smoothie from Jumba Juice, and a pretzel dog from Auntie Annes ( whoever invented those... I LOVE YOU!) After that pit stop we headed to the show. It was great, though we were in the small group of people under the age of 50, and didn't know a good number of the songs, but you know, it was fun anyway! They did play some we knew, like Revolution, Hello/goodbye song, and their encore performance was Imagine, and Hey Jude!! Two of my all time favs! ( Which reminds me, I am going to get the Across the Universe soundtrack on my Ipod!)
We have another busy day ahead of us today, some more play room stuff. Oh an I've been so " crafty " lately, making all kinds of things with me sewing machine, and with my own two hands!!! Becca and Carson are going to come over an hang out with us some time too, so it'll be a busy rest of the week probably. I've taken a few pictures I need to put up, so check back!;)

This kinda happened to me when I was like in high school You see, I used to dance. That's right, I wasn't a sports player until the 4th grade. I danced. ALOT. I took everything they offered. Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Clog ( oh yeah clog). I was on the competition team, if you will, there were only two of us. We always won the showstopper competitions and everything. I thought that we were amazing. Until one day I ran across the Video tape of our competition dance. All I have to say, is that there must have only been one "team" in our age group... US. We were HORRIBLE!!! Bad, not even the oh they are cute good, just BAD. I don't know how my mother watched me dance for so long. It was just sad!!! But that was when I learned that I couldn't ever dance, and well I haven't tried to since!!! But I learned another little something on Thursday.
Know don't get me wrong, I was never a great skater. The Christmas my sister and I got Rollerblade, our favorite move was called the butt buster. We would race down the street, then fall on our asses. I have no idea how that didn't hurt like hell, but well we thought that it was funny. I vividly remember called my parents outside to " judge" us on who fell the best. Yes, we were cool! So anyway, lost track again. Adam and I went to partake in the " Stay at home Mommy" fun that is stroller SKATING! Yes, four wheel skating at a skating rink. Did you know they still existed? I did not. There is a rink in Plano, not far from us, that does stroller skating on Thursday mornings from 9-12, for 4 bucks... yes 4 bucks, that's what I call cheap entertainment, as well as exercise.
Just to give you an idea of how " good" at skating I am, picture this. My husband wouldn't even let me hold onto the stroller at first, because I was sooo unstable. But I'm proud to say, I NEVER fell, though I might have pulled my groin muscle trying my damnedest to stay up!;) ( Not really though, at the time it did feel like it!) I finally got the hang of skating though and was able to push my stroller like a real mommy, but it was kind of embarrassing. My legs and butt hurt so bad from clinching holding myself up, so I would have to say it was a GREAT workout as well!!! I hope to go again next week, well because it's something different than wrestling with the dogs and the stroller walking around the block. ( I just can't leave the dogs at home, they get soo excited when I put tennis shoes on, they just know we're going on a walk, I can't break their little canine hearts. Though once we get outside, I almost always wanna kill them if we are alone. They don't get the concept of not crossing in front of the stroller, and well walking on the correct side of mailboxes!)

~Still in size one diapers
~0-3 month clothes, with room left to grow
~SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT!!!! Since about Valentines day he sleeps from 10PM to 9 or 9:30 AM!!!
~Much more awake and alert during the day.
~Reaching and grabbing for his toys on his monkey mat
~Gives smiles away like candy
~Giggled for us in the bath, though that's only happened once. he did laugh at daddy during a diaper change
~I am not sure how much he weighs, but at his 2 month, he was 10 Lbs 3 Oz and 22 1/2 inches. 25% for both! Our little peanut!
~Still nurses in the morning and at night, with formula in between
~Refuses to have a blanket on his legs, unless he's sleeping. He'll just kick it off, over and over again!
~Rolls over, when he's in the mood of course. But I've gotten many tummy to back rolls
~Found his hands, and has them in his mouth a lot!
~Drools ALL THE TIME, I really should invest in some bibs!
Another month has gone by, it's still seems surreal that he is our baby, but we love it. I love that he is getting more personality, and that he can interact with us more. I'll be honest those first couple of months were kinda boring. All he did was lay there. But now he laughs, and smiles, and plays. I know some Mommy's might say other wise, but I can't wait until he is mobile!;) ( I'll probably learn my lesson once he is though!!!)
In other non- Dylan news- Cross your fingers, Adam had a job interview this morning, architecture jobs are starting to open up, so hopefully, he'll get something soon! I mean, come on who wouldn't wanna hire him!?

Laura coming into town, meant that she required visits to some of her favorite restaurants, some of which included, Pappasitos, Javier's, Black Eye'd Pea, and we even tried a BBQ place out by Lake Lavon that was pretty tasty! Big Mamma's BBQ I do believe! Of Course Adam and I tagged along for all of these meals, and I'm pretty sure that I gained like 5 pounds when she was here. Too much good food. Sadly we won't be seeing Laura again until September, when she makes her way from NYC to Dallas, before heading to Australia. Dylan will miss her I'm sure, but hey, it gives him something to look forward to in September!
Everyone was excited to see Aunt Laura, Even Bailey! Though I am pretty sure in this picture she is wondering what the big deal with the little human is!;)
