Then and Now

Our little Collin was born almost 11 weeks ago. I just think it's amazing how time has flown by! It's gotten to where I have to think about how many weeks he is now, instead of just knowing right off. In fact, I had to look at the calendar to tell you all that he is 11 weeks. Anyways, I'm just feeling really blessed tonight to have such wonderful children and especially to have just had, yet another, healthy little baby. Well, not so little, but you know what I mean! I feel like all I've posted about lately is Collin, but there's not much to post about and he's just growing so fast and is changing in so many ways. So, here are "then and now " pics of Baby Collin! What a difference!

Life is pretty boring right now. Nothing too fun going on...just a lot of stress. It's either a car issue, a job issue, a kid issue, or a money issue. What's next?! So, apparently, when I have NOTHING to blog about I find it fun to change my background, look through pictures, ect. Hopefully I'll have something exciting to blog about soon!

Our BIG Boy...

Collin is now 8 weeks old. Time sure has flown. He went into the doctor today for his 2 month check-up and we found out he's a HEFTY 15 lbs. 5 oz. (97%)! I wasn't surprised, but WAS surprised to find out he's "average" when it comes to his height. So, basically I have this ball of a baby...Short and round! Better to cuddle with, right?

We also received the wonderful news that his heart murmur is gone! The doctor said that sometimes newborns have a small one, like he did, and then it fixes itself after time. Well, it did fix itself, but much quicker than I had anticipated. One less thing to worry about! Yay!

Caught In The Act

This is what happens when I leave my 2 yr. old unattended for 5 whole minutes! Yes, he found the markers and colored his feet...and socks. Luckily, they're washable :)

This picture is sideways. Don't know why. Sorry! You get the idea though.

Say Cheese!

I've been trying to capture this image for about two weeks now...I finally got Collin to smile for the camera! In the past, every time I get it out he, all of the sudden, becomes camera shy. He just stares. So, here's the world's chubbiest baby ever, smiling! Seriously, he's soooo big. I did the whole, weigh myself with him, then without, and he's weighing a good 15-16 lbs! Yeah, you read right...It's crazy. But, he's so cuddly and squishy. I love it!

Birthday Boy!

Today is Jeremy's Birthday!!! He's now the big 2-9. Happy Birthday Jer! We love you!

We had a little party with Jeremy's family yesterday. Here's the Birthday Boy with his ice cream cake and a mean game of SCATTERGORIES.

Tummy Time?

Lately, every time I give Collin his "tummy time" he falls asleep! What good is tummy time if he's just gonna lay there and fall asleep? I guess he's just tired...

This time he must have wore himself out from wiggling so much. He wiggled himself right off the mat!
