He's So Vain...

Colby's best friend resides in the mirror. He watches himself with such interest, and always tries to reach out to himself, leaving so many fingerprints all over the mirror. So I took this video so you can see how intrigued he is. And then I realized how he looks at you when you call his name. He peeks in the mirror, then turns to look at you... and then... well, you'll have to see.

(For the record, this is Why I'm a Bad Mom Reason #214)

She just wanted to play, too!

Harley, (our smaller of the fat cats) is attention deprived. Just ask her. She often asks, no... begs, no, DEMANDS Grant's attention. He can't even play with his son without her intervening.

Family Dinner!

Every other weekend, we go to a family dinner and Colby gets to see his closest cousin, Brooks! They were only born two weeks apart. It was cool to have two little boys due so close to another!

But there definitely is a size difference between the two.

Lets compare legs and feet, shall we? I mean, you can actually see Brooks' legs and his feet. Colby's seem to be covered by Marshmallow.
Then there is mean Uncle Jason. The title 'mean' happened because Jason always wakes Colby up, and tickles and pinches him. Jason knows exactly where Colbs is ticklish. Jason can always make Colby laugh.
Yup, Colbs likes his Mean Uncle Jason.

Its A Letter!

Dear Colby,

This past week you turned six months old!

That is so exciting, but so overwhelming at the same time. Everyone says that babies grow so quickly, but I never guessed you would. You are quite the chunk still! You are getting heavy! Last week we took you out with your friend James, who is 10 months older than you, and somebody thought you two were twins! It was embarassing and funny all at the same time.

I keep telling you that if you can guarantee that all your siblings will turn out exactly like you, than I'd have 50 kids. Never have I seen a better behaved baby. You like to sit on mommy's lap and cuddle with her. You smile all the time. You fall asleep right when we put you to bed, and stay there the entire night! You won't understand the beauty of this until you have a baby, but it makes your mommy and daddy so proud!

Your daddy is your best friend. He always makes you laugh hysterically. Every time you see him, you get a huge grin on your face. You know he's your daddy and you love to play! I love to see the bond you share, and I can't wait to see that grow. I can't wait until he teaches you to take your first steps, to ride your bike, or mow the lawn. And I'm not just saying that because I want the lawn mowed more often. Or because I'm all for child labor. :) It'll be precious, I tell you!

Really Colby, thanks for the cuddles, the loves, and the laughter. Mama and daddy love you.

Love, Mama

Piano Man

We just bought the Colbster a kiddie piano, and he loves it!

This song is dedicated to you! (second 16 shows his other new passion, blowing raspberries!)

This weekend we went to a carnival!

Colby got his face painted! It was supposed to be a star, but he was very wiggly!

He got to bounce!

Shhh, don't tell grandma! For the record, he wasn't too particularly fond of cotton candy.

And just a bit of photoshop fun! He was in love with all the balloons there! He kept grabbed them, and bopping himself on the head with them!

Just bragging...

This is Colby's new trick! He sits up really well! He's been doing it for about a week. Unfortunately, these are the best pics I have, because he's also been drooling like crazy, and all his other pics have drool spots.

Last week when it was warmer, I had to plant some daffodils in the front yard, so I placed Colbs on a blanket. He loved it and coo'ed to me the entire time.

Wrestling with daddy

In between conference sessions, daddy and colbs were wrestling in the front room.

I'm just guessing, but I think the Colbster won.

These crack me up!

Colby has discovered that mouths aren't just for sucking on fingers. He's blowing bubbles, yelling, and then this... he's decided he doesn't want anyone to see his bottom lip. Even when you get him to smile, he still hides it!

What a silly boy!

Ripping At the Seams

Ok, so colbs is getting chubby. Well, he's always been chubby. Now he's just ripping through the seams. He is puffing his cheeks in this picture, you know, to appear chubbier. But you can also see something peeking out...

When he moves his foot, you can get a better view. His jammies don't snap shut anymore. Look at that blue onesie glory!

Does he care? Not one bit. :)
