Our next door neighbor just retired, so set up his band for an afternoon party. Once again, Dylan was transfixed! Eventually he wandered around a bit, but remained focused on the music. At one point a band member said they try not to pay more than $250 to play anywhere. Ha ha ha!

It's getting really difficult to take pictures or videos of Dylan nowadays because all he wants to do is watch himself! He'll sit on my lap for 10s of minutes, having me play and replay and replay videos of him. I think he's starting to realize that it's him!
Big boxes are the BEST. I remember how playing with these as a kid was sooooo much fun, I got inspired to cut holes in a large ~enough~ box that had Dylan's new chairs inside.
Here's the new table and chairs, and a fussy toddler who suddenly wants to see the camera, whereas he'd been happily looking at the whales (one of his favorite pages) and other animals just moments before.

How cool is this?! The grad students let Dylan intrude on their football tosses several times. He ended up interacting with all 5-6 of them, I think, but I only captured one on video. They were great! And Dylan clearly enjoyed his interceptions, passes, and touchdown runs. :-)
Dylan has rocked before, in the Laz-E-Mom chair in his bedroom, but nonetheless looked initially confused when I called this rocking. He looked over to his right and said "rock," pointing at a rock Bob has on his end table. Not sure what the "ya ya" is supposed to mean. He's clearly pointing at the arm, so was that a very bad imitation of "rocking?" He does echo "chair" soon after.
