August 26, 2006 - Up Close & Personal

With this cutie being silly laying on the floor!

August 26, 2006 - Still on all fours

Here's a clearer picture of Colin on all fours... still not doing any real crawling, but rocking around when he's up there. His new game is lunging forward as soon as I help him get his legs up underneath him, then I move his legs again and he lunges, etc, etc... it's his way of moving (with a personal assistant to do the hard work of course!)

August 26, 2006 - Colin and Mommy

Home relaxing after a fun afternoon at the 'Stallis (West Allis for you non-natives) Farmer's Market!

August 22, 2006 - It's the little joys in life...

... like a paper envelope... who knew it could make one little baby quite so happy?

August 20, 2006 - Poolside

Colin lounges by the pool with the girls- he laughs, gives kisses and drinks water from his sippy cup to stay hydrated!

(okay, so maybe it's more like baby slobber than kisses, but it's still cute!)

August 20, 2006 - A liberal is born every minute...

Colin already takes after Mommy...

(His onesie reads "I already know more than the President")

Disclaimer: Mommy didn't even buy this for Colin, it came from Auntie Melissa!!!

August 18, 2006 - Getting into things...

And Colin says... 'What Mommy, your shoes aren't fun toys for the baby?'

Time to start baby proofing the house...

August 14, 2006- 7 Months Old

And what a way to celebrate... getting his first ear infection! I think Colin just wanted to play hooky with Mommy from day care/work on his 7 month birthday... but he will probably rethink this idea next time because being sick wiped him out! (He's feeling much better now :)

August 13, 2006 - New bath tub

Look at Colin's new bath tub!

He is such a big boy!

August 13, 2006 - Teething techniques

If the teething toys aren't cutting it, then Colin gets his mouth around something of substance, like the entire high chair tray!

August 12, 2006 - Helping with the laundry

Colin helps Mommy fold the laundry (and gets almost buried in the pile!) He's all smiles!

August 9, 2006 - On all fours!

The picture isn't the best quality (taken using my cell phone camera) but it does show this little man up on all fours! Okay, so he doesn't stay that way for long but he gets a rockin' when he does stay up!

August 6, 2006 - Big Boy Bath

Colin gets a treat-- a bath in the big boy tub with Mommy as a baby bumper! He loves to splash around and play with the water toys.

August 5, 2006 - Afternoon cat nap

Mommy and Colin take a little Saturday afternoon cat nap together... so peaceful.

August 4, 2006 - Making baby food

Colin in the midst of the fruits and veggies that will be used for Baby Food Making 101 (Aunt Lissa gets more practice than she signed up for...)
There are sweet potatos, banana, plums, payaya, kiwi, green beans, peaches and more!
See how much fun making baby food can be??? Plums turn into tasty baby treats to be frozen until Colin's ready and hungry to eat them!

August 4, 2006 - So Big!

Colin plays with his Aunt and shows that he is "SO BIG!"

August 1, 2006 - Sippy Cup

Colin loves his sippy cup!
He drinks water out of it as well as chews on the spout (makes for a great teething toy)!
