November 22, 2006 - Straight to the bathtub after this meal...

Babies are supposed to learn by experience, right??

During this meal,
Colin learned how spinach felt...
in between his fingers,
allover his hair,
behind his ear,
rubbed into his sweater
and of course,
all over the high chair!

Oh yeah....
and he did actually taste some too


November 19, 2006 - Sweetly Sleeping

Oh so quite and calm...

November 18, 2006 - Betty Brinn Children's Museum


Colin loved playing here - and will love it even more as he gets older! We spent the day with Melissa, Michelle and their cousin Zora who is 2 years old (and Colin loved playing with Zora too!)

Here's Colin and Zora pushing around some sort of ball contraption (with a little assistance for Colin from the Mama :)

Showing Melissa how to set up the train tracks :)

And we enjoyed much more playing at the museum!

November 18, 2006 - Standing on his own...

We're in trouble! (They said he took his first unassisted step at day care on Friday but I have yet to see one!) But Colin is definitely standing alone a lot more-- in these pics, he went for his toy and then was shaking it- all while keeping his balance standing alone... now that's what I call baby talent :)

November 17. 2006 - Mad crawler on the loose!

November 12, 2006 - Laundry Cart Racing

Okay, just kidding... but Colin did love his ride on the laundry cart up to the apartment from the laundry room this morning (hey, the laundry was FINISHED by 7:45 am... it was an early morning and Mama was tired!)

November 12, 2006 - Hungry Man Breakfast

Wowzers, can you believe the size of this boy's breakfast? Now you can understand the size of his belly :) Colin ate most of this plate along with some cereal with fruit cubes (the plate is scrambled egg yolk, whole wheat waffle, fresh blueberries and raspberries). Tasty!

November 11, 2006 - New friend in the mirror

Colin's made a new friend-- the baby in the mirror!
He talks and sings to him, waves hi and also gives him big smiles and kisses!

November 11, 2006 - Teeth!

Here's the proof- the bottom 2 are in (and they are sharp says the Mama!)

November 11, 2006 - Grandpa time

Colin gets some last minute playing in with Grandpa before he has to drive home. Look at that smile!

November 11, 2006 - Colin Collage

Grandpa helps hang a picture collage of Colin in the hallway and then Mama and Colin check it out- looks great (and what a cute baby, says Colin!)

November 10, 2006 - Reading is fun!

Colin and Mommy stop during playtime to read "There's a Wocket in My Pocket" - Colin is really starting to enjoy reading books. He is pointing to pictures, giving kisses to (or trying to eat) the characters and turning the pages.

November 5, 2006 - Naptime in Mama's bed I will admit that both Colin and Mama were taking a little snooze before this picture was taken :) Colin has taken to sleeping in some odd positions, this one being his favorite. As long as he's comfortable, right?

November 4, 2006 - T O Y S !

Need I say more?

October 31, 2006 - Baby Behind

Getting ready for bathtime!!! ...

...and more bath adventures- Colin now likes to stand up for about half of his bath which makes it much more challenging for Mama! He also loves to try to catch the falling water (and hasn't quite figured out why he can't just grab it!)

October 31, 2006 - Baby's 1st Boo

Colin's outfit for his first true Halloween (no costumes at day care so we improvised with his 1st halloween bib and booties!) Also Colin loved his plush pumpkin and dressed up bear from Craig's family!
