Colin 10 months and Big Brother update

Colin is 10 months old....I can't believe he will be ONE soon! I think we are gonna have a double party for him and Carson, of course Baseball themed.

There haven't really been a ton of changes since his 9 month post...but here is what he has been up to lately.
  • He will stand unassisted and now he claps while standing.
  • He can walk with just holding on with one hand.
  • He likes to walk in the walker, he was so proud of himself the first time.
  • He started making the clicking noise with his tongue and does this constantly when he is in a good mood.
  • He learned how to throw a ball and play catch.
  • He just started waving, so cute!
  • He loves the song "Elmo's world" he will just stare at us and smile when we sing it, he also loves his talking Elmo and laughs at it.
  • He loves to climb on things that he is able to get on. I got the play tunnel out, and he and Carson are having a blast with it.
  • He is really getting frustrated with the bucket car seat.
  • He MUST sample everything we eat OR ELSE.
  • I never mentioned this before, but he likes to prop his foot on his bottle while he is drinking it, so quirky.
  • He is so busy these days, it's hard to get good pics! Here are some recent ones....

Big Brother: Colin and Carson have so much fun together, if we say "Where's Carson?" Colin will find him immediately with his eyes. 

Carson is such a sweet big brother, he will bring Colin toys, sing to him, he gets so excited when Colin wakes up from naps, and last night while they were playing in Carson's room, Carson was reading books to him. 

Carson loves to feed Colin finger foods, this is a big help while we are in the grocery store! 

Carson has the sweetest spirit, he told me "Mommy, I love Colin, he's my brudder". 

This was the only way I could get a picture of them, I had to strap Colin down in his car!

Happy 10 months Colin!!!!!!!!!!!

Colin, 9 months

This has been a very exciting month for my baby boy! He is such a sweet baby, and I love him more and more every day!

He is crawling, cruising, standing alone for a few seconds, walking with assistance (he pushes his activity table around), trying table food and saying "mama" and "dada".....he is a very busy baby!

He is obsessed with playing in the bathroom, every time the door is open, there he goes. He stands at the tub and screams b/c he wants in, and if I close the door before he can go in there - he cries, he also does this if he can't go outside. Speaking of outside, he would stay out all day if he could.

He has started to do the baby bounce dance when he hears music or gets excited. I love this!

He holds his own bottle and feeds himself finger foods.

He loves playing peek-a-boo, especially with Carson. He and Carson also have screaming and laughing wars in the car, it is so funny and sweet. 

He has 2 teeth! He has one bottom front and one of his canines. The rest will be here soon, at his check up, the nurse said it looked like a lot of the front teeth were coming at the same time. 

He loves for us to pretend to chase him, he will take off crawling fast and giggle.

He started using a sippy cup and is doing well with it; I tried so many with Carson and it took him forever to understand that it was for drinking, and the Nuk brand worked so well for him so that is what I am using this time around too.

He went to a swimming pool for the first time and I knew he would love it, he adores bath time. He was so content in the water. I am loving the spray on sunscreen! Makes this so much easier with two busy boys!

Happy 9 months Colin!!!!!!!
