Oops. I’m a little behind in blogging. I’m so busy doing other stuff, that when I have free time where I can blog, I’d much rather just lay on the couch and zone out! My Dad reminded me today that it’s about time I update this thing! So, here ya go! (and there are tons of pictures!)
Colby turned 1 on Sept. 10th. I can’t believe it. He is such a sweet boy and we’ve sure experienced a lot of ups and downs with him! From his orange skin (turned out to be nothing thankfully!) to his odd shaped head (no helmet needed! Praise God!) to his delay in pretty much everything! We’re still on the waiting list to get into a Portland clinic, but I’m hoping at Colby’s 15 month appt. the doctor will see how far Colby has come in just the last 2 months! He is now crawling everywhere! Hip hip hooray! He’s so much happier now that he can move around and not be stuck in one place. He did this after he turned 1. He can pull himself up and can walk around furniture. He doesn’t seem too eager to walk on his own yet. But he is quick with crawling! He also got his first 2 teeth after her turned 1. And after his birthday we finally cut off his sweet curls. If we let it get long enough they are there. So, sadly, he looks old now! He is still in size 3 diapers, and is wearing 12-18month clothes. He’s long and lean like his daddy! He sleeps great! And still takes 2 naps a day. And he sleeps anywhere-praise God! At church, on a blanket at the park (this was mainly during the summer), at a friend’s house, etc. I’m so thankful he can be flexible where he sleeps!
The family at Colby’s birthday party! It’s nice to have an early Sept. birthday so we can sit outside and enjoy the weather!
He loved being sung to and I’m pretty sure he clapped his hands at the end of it.
He liked his cupcake!
A recap of his first 12 months of life.
Soo many presents.
Seriously, his hair is crazy!
He’s such a happy baby!
We experienced the dreaded thrush for a good month. We tried an antibiotic 2 times and it kept coming back. Finally, we tried this nasty purple stuff that stains EVERYTHING! But, it killed it. Should’ve tried it sooner. Now we know for next time!
And just a walk down memory lane of Colby’s fist year:
Terrible picture of me, but I love how little Colby is in the wrap! Wish I could still snuggle him like that now!
We love you so much Colby Jacob!!
