Colin, 3 months

Colin is 3 months old today... 

My precious little baby has the sweetest smile, and it doesn't take much to get a smile out of him, he is always so happy. He is usually in such a good mood, and is usually a very laid back baby. 

  • Colin eats about 4-5 oz every 3 to 3.5 hours during the day and he goes 5 hours in between feedings at night, and he sleeps in his crib. 
  • He has become strong enough to get out of his miracle blanket swaddle, won't be long before we need to use the sleep sacks.
  • He just started to roll from his back to his side, won't be long before he rolls over completely!
  • When he is really tired, and we give him the passy and rock him, he will hum himself to sleep.
  • He still loves to nap in the swing.
  • He loves the floor gym, and is ok with the bouncy seat sometimes.
  • He will lay in his crib and watch the little aquarium, Carson would never do this!
  • His new favorite thing to do is stand up in our laps.
  • He coos and makes other loud noises at the TV, it is hilarious.
  • He is SO ticklish pretty much everywhere.
  • He has his first week of daycare this week and is doing well.
  • He has grown out of his 0-3 month clothes and now needs 3 months or 3-6 months. 
  • Still in size 2 diapers.
  • He weighs about 13 pounds.
  • His hair has gotten kind of long on top, and looks to be lightening up.
  • He loves his showers with Carson and Dada.
  • He loves diaper changes.
  • He loves when Carson looks at him, talks to him, and sings to him. 

  • He started batting his hands at toys a few weeks ago.
  • He has really been focusing on getting his hands and his toys in his mouth.
  • He likes to have his passy when he is sleepy and likes to be rocked to sleep.
  • He has started to protest the carseat....I hope this is just temporary b/c we have to travel a lot during the holidays.
  • He likes to look at books, he starts kicking his legs when he sees the pictures.

I absolutely love having Colin here and being a family of four! Happy 3 months sweet baby!

Halloween 2011

Hope everyone had a great Halloween! We started off by visiting a local church pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkin. Carson had so much fun running around and trying to lift the pumpkins, he also wanted to sit on as many as possible. 

Cory did such a good job carving!

Carson had so much fun trick-or-treating with his cousin Zoe, and they did such a great job! Halloween this year was such a blast since Carson "got it".....I can't wait for Christmas!

Here are some pics from our fun night!

Me and my boys:

There are not enough words for the adorableness of this one :)

The babies did so good tagging along in their strollers:


The best house ever! This lady gave chips to the parents, toy cars to the boys and pink balloons to the girls.

The pretty Princess!
