Dylan is 5 years old!!!

Dylan Nicholas Coles was born February 19th 2004 in Logan Utah

This afternoon we went to "pump it up" so Dylan could play with his preschool buddies
Jaxson wanted to do what all the big kids were doing
Jaxson had a mouth full of animal crackers and couldn't give me a smile.  If you look at Jaxson's shirt the monkey has one tooth just like Jaxson (Jaxson has his one tooth on the bottom though) I still need to get a picture of Jaxosn's snaggle tooth!

We went to Dinner at Red Robin

Great picture.. Notice the chocolate on his teeth!

How can I have a 5 year old???

Dylan had been so excited to turn five!  This morning he woke up asking if it was his birthday yet.  I let him open his presents since he had been patient and not opening them when they arrived in the mail this week.  He got some good stuff and my mom sent him a remote control helicopter which I am hoping will last a while.  My mom has sent Dylan two other remote control items which didn't last long.  The first, I actually broke, and then the second... Dylan  was upstairs playing with his remote control truck and he steered it too close to the stairs, and down it tumbled.  So I am hoping for better luck this time or Dylan will be devastated.  He also got a Nintendo DS for his birthday.  We are suckers and caved.  Our friends little boys have one and Dylan has been asking for one since.  I didn't even know it is a real gaming system like the xbox or wii.  At least he can take it wherever he goes and it doesn't need to be hooked up to our tv!   We went to a place called "pump it up" today.  It is like the kangaroo zoo in Utah except for this place is usually just for parties.  Dylan has a classmate who's mom runs it, and she has a play group for the boys in his class to meet there once a week and play.  This was the first time we went and it was great.. Especially cause Dylan and his preschool friends had the whole place to themselves and it was free of charge!  Once Nick got home we had dinner at red robin.  I am hoping to do a party for him on Monday since I couldn't do one this weekend like I had originally wanted to.  Dylan actually got to dinner and was like "where are my friends???"  He thought his birthday party was going to be at red robin!  He is a funny kid.

I really can't believe he is five.  I couldn't have asked for a better kid or big brother to Jaxson.  He has always been such a good natured kid.  He never hit or bit other kids or went through "the terrible twos" stage.  As a baby he was content to just hang out in his car seat or swing forever and never woke up at night for anything other than his bottle and he would go right back to sleep as soon as he got it.  When Jaxson came along he never even got jealous.  He just loved him and would always look out for him.  He always has an eye out for Jaxson and has saved him from falling off our bed, or any other potential hazards.  He has been such a good helper and has such a fun personality.  Of course he still has his "moments" in which he drives me crazy but that comes with the age ; )  Happy birthday Dylan we love you!

I can't believe he's that old! I remember meeting him at 4 months and he had egzma.
Anyway, Happy Birthday, Dylan!

Wow! I can't believe he is 5. I still remember the first time I met him in the dungeon at school. I found your blog and have enjoyed reading about you and your family. Sometime we are going to take a trip to Memphis because that is where Trevor served his mission. It would be fun to see you.
