The End of Flaming Gorge

So in our family, we really don't 'rough it' very often, unless you count Church. (Its a jungle out there!... I kid, I kid.) So living in a CABIN for 3 whole days was something brand new. Colby took it all with stride, and was a very happy camper.

This pic cracks me up. Colby's so chubby that he has a plumber's crack out his diaper. Its adorable, but if he were any older I'd say "Colby, pull up yer pants!"

Flaming Gorge, pt 1

Here's why we haven't updated in awhile! We went to Flaming Gorge for a family boating/fishing trip!

Just on the boat. He didn't have his life jacket on because we were still docked in the marina.

Unfortunately, they don't make comfortable life jackets for chubby babies. The little boy was pretty miserable...

Until he found a mirror to play in!

Juice Box Junkie

Colby loves juice boxes. He hates sippy cups, but loves sucking on a straw. He will suck and suck until it starts dribbling out his mouth, and then he lets go, coughing and sputtering. Hey, he may not walk, cruise, or crawl, but the kid can drink from a straw. :)

Excuse me...

I'm just wondering if anyone has seen this little baby boy anywhere around here?

We thought we had him, but it turns out he was replaced but a pudgy chubby cheerio lover.

Please return. Thank you.

4th of July Parade

Unfortunately, he was really grumpy during the parade. (No nap makes a grumpy boy.) Hence the binky and bored little boy!

This face cracks me up. He makes it whenever he starts his 'da da da da da' babbling.

Every time I try on the 'ma ma ma' babble, he just looks at me and laughs. I'm beginning to wonder if he thinks thats my name.

So Proud

This little guy loves his food. He's decided that liquid solids are for chumps, give me some of that crunchy chewy stuff. However, he hasn't quite figured out the choking hazard aspect of food, so he just gets lots of puffs and cheerios and the occasional dinner of pasta or potatoes. Look how proud and happy he is. :)

You have got to see these!

My friend kim is awesome! She is a professional photographer and takes the best pictures ever. I've been salivating over her work for forever, and I keep begging to get her to take pics of the colbster, to see what magic she can create. Cutest boy in the world, plus most amazing photographer in the world... dare I expect less than phenomenal?

Check these out. I was amazed, and grateful!

5 minutes and my son was flirting with the camera. I would upload all of them but I think that blogger would have a heart attack.
(P.S. You should totally go to her blog... she is giving a free session and 8 x 10 to one lucky reader. I totally hope its me, but if its you, I won't be too jealous!)

The Little Turd

Colby has been babbling tons lately. His favorite thing to say, of course, is da da da da da da da... and so on, despite my constant ma ma ma ma sounds. We had a 'conversation' in the car this morning, and this is honestly, 100% what it sounded like.

Colby: Da da da da da da da...
Mom: No, ma ma ma ma ma
Colby: ... NO. da da da.
Mom: Ma ma ma ma. Remember me? The one who gives you baths, feeds you, plays with you? Ma ma ma ma.
Colby: Who?

Like, uhm, Doesn't ring a bell. Come again?

4th of July, at least some of it!

I know this is late... its much later than it should be. You really should fire the writer of this blog!

We had a grand ol' time for the 4th. Its true, every holiday is so much more fun with kids! If it was just the adults, we would've stayed home and cleaned... out of sheer boredom. Instead, we got ready and went to a parade! It was super fun, too! I can't wait to show you the pics! .... But I have to. I forgot my camera, so I have to get them off my friend's when she gets back in to town! So wait til a later date!

After the parade, we went to grandma's for a pool party slash barbeque!

Then we had fireworks in the front yard! Colby was enthralled with the sparklers, and kept trying to reach for them. However, the bigger fireworks scared him, and he clung to me and eventually grandma. This is ironic, the huge fireworks last week didn't even phase him, but a couple of fountains pushed him over the edge!
This is his scared oh-crap what are they doing??? face. Seconds afterwards, he buried his face into me.

Happy 4th of July!

We took this picture last week at the carnival that came through town, but it works for today, I promise. ;)

Kiddie Pool at James' House

He can actually reach the bottom in this pool! Unfortunately, it was slippery so I had to hold on to his trunks the entire time. He did NOT want to get out, so he got very wrinkly feet by the end of the night. Enjoy!

Rough Housing

He's such a boy! He loooooooooves rough-housing with his daddy, and being upside down.
