8 Months Old!

Yikes. Colby turned 8 months 2 weeks ago! Where has the time gone?! Sigh. He’ll be turning 1 before I know it!  Trying to get pictures of him is a bit difficult as he just wants to move around! See?



Always grabbing his toes when he can!


Got a little smile out of him!


And just to prove he’s not ALWAYS happy (but, he usually is thankfully!) He was not enjoying this meal!! His face was just too cute that I had to take a picture of him.

What is Colby up to?

*Not much. He doesn’t crawl or roll from his back to tummy. He’s just an easy-going baby and is perfectly content to sit on the floor and play with toys. But, I’m ok with that (kind of!) Our kids were never ambitious to get moving quickly. I may have already said this before, but Lily didn’t even WALK until she was 15 months!

*He weighs 17 lbs. 7 oz. as of 2 weeks ago. He is in the 35% for weight and 95% for height!

*He is eating solids great and starting to get used to eating little chunks of lunch meat and cheese. He didn’t love avocado, but I haven’t tried it in a while so maybe he will like it!

*He is sleeping through the night!!! Praise God! I never had to let him “cry it out!” He just randomly started sleeping through one night. So thankful to get a full night’s rest!

*I know I’ve said it already, but he’s just the most happy, content little baby. He tolerates Jameson’s hugs (more like Jameson tramples him to give him a hug!) He loves watching Lily and Jameson and they just love Colby. He is one well loved little baby!

And, last Sunday at church, we had Colby dedicated. Being dedicated means we are making a public declaration to raise Colby in the ways of God, guiding him in the Word and by being godly examples as well. (And yes, some of these words I copied from his certificate we got! :)


In AJ’s defense, he didn’t realize my brother was taking pictures-but at least he was looking at the camera!


The 5 of us! I sure love my family!
