Colin is 8 months old!

My baby boy turned 8 months old on April 18th; this past month has been huge as far as firsts.

  • Colin is now pulling himself up from sitting to standing supported. He is constantly testing out everything he sees to see if he can use it to pull up.
  • He can go from laying down to sitting up all on his own. We have lowered his crib due to all the new developments.
  • He is clapping and doing all other sorts of copy-catting.
  • He started eating the puffs and can already feed those to himself. He loves them and when he chews them it looks like he has bubble gum. I also broke up some of the yogurt bites so he could eat those too, we ran out of them quickly b/c Carson loves them as well!
  • He is not crawling yet, but he really wants to and gets mad that he can't yet. He just rolls around the floor for mobility at the moment.
  • This baby is so hard to get clothes and diapers on, he will NOT be still! Wiggle.Worm.
  • He is now big enough to ride in the little red car, and he and Carson have a blast riding side by side (Carson drives his truck). He has ridden in the car for about a week now, and sitting down is old news to him, he now wants to ride standing up, we strap him in so he just halfway stands up. An 8 month old dare devil....I am gonna have my hands full with these two....
  • He loves playing outside, he is constantly trying to eat grass...he also loves to swing.
  • He tried the baby yogurt for the first time this month and loves it, I think it's his favorite food. He also really likes mangos, something Carson hated.
  • I was starting to get worried b/c he wasn't babbling very much, but he finally started to speak up :)
  • His hair is getting longer and it curls a little in the back, it has a golden blonde color to it.
  • He went to his first Braves baseball game this week, and he did pretty good. He even slept through a couple of innings.
  • He is still a big boy, he weighs over 19 pounds and is almost ready for some 12 month clothes. I just love his chubby legs and arms! We may have to get a new car seat for him sooner than I thought.
  • He is such a sweet baby, I just love spending every day with him and his brother.

Happy 8 months precious baby!!!!!!!!!!!!

Easter 2012

Hope everyone had a great Easter, we had such a fun weekend as a family!

Saturday, we met up with our friends and went to a local festival, they had an egg hunt for the little ones and many of our local restaurants were there offering cheap samples of there food, we had such a nice time.

Carson got to check out a Firetruck up close and personal.....

He also enjoyed all of the samples...especially the cupcakes!

Colin loves the balloons as usual!

After naps, we dyed Easter eggs with Carson, and he also got to paint some glitter one them.

The finished product...

After bedtime, the Easter Bunny came...

Carson got a new dinosaur, dinosaur gummies, candy, dino sunglasses, bubbles, chocolate/peanut butter bunny, a Braves pez dispenser, new books, and some glow-in-the-dark stars for his ceiling. I ran out of room in his bucket so I made a dinosaur nest for the dinosaur and his eggs full of candy.

Colin got a sippy cup, puffs (loves these!), spoons, baby yogurt (loves that too! and big brother always has to have some too), and a baby pool for the back yard (for both kids of course).

Here are some pics of my precious babies on Easter Sunday:

We also went to the zoo, Carson had an absolute BLAST!

Colin did so well the whole time, he loves being outside, he even slept for half of the time!
