He's growing up.

In this video, Colby shows three of his latest skills: walking, saying kitty, and irritating the crap out of the cat. He does all three pretty well.

He left me no choice

So before halloween, Colby got a ghost towel that was adorable. I just wanted a simply, adorable picture of Colby in it. I mean, he didn't even have to be smiling. However, Colby hates hats. Nothing can be on his head. If he can't get it off, he has a panic attack. Its horrible. So the ghost towel wasn't going over very well.

So he gave me no choice. If he wouldn't let me take the picture with the towel on, then I had to take a picture with the towel off.

In 10-15 years, my son will hate me for posting this. Awww, sweet revenge.

Mom, you suck!

I am pretty much horrible at this now, aren't I?

In all fairness, Colby's been sick, so we haven't done much anything. Plus as the semester winds down, we have zero time anymore!

So I will update this today in just a few minutes. Gotta go find some pictures. It'll be quick, I promise!

So I stayed home with Colby all day today because he was sick. So when daddy came home, he made dinner and took care of the Colbster for me. He called me from the kitchen and said "please come get your son, I'm dealing with really hot things right now and he's in the way. He was making pasta, and he had just dumped it into the colander to drain. Colby was standing at his feet as I entered the kitchen. DH moved the colander to the counter to finish preparing dinner, and Colby was splashed with the boiling hot water as it passed over his head. He starts screaming in pain as I run to him, and try to get the random droplets of his head, where I assumed was the most painful. He continued to scream and scream, it took about 4 minutes to calm him. When we took off his shirt to give him his dinner, we saw why. It had got onto his sleeve, and kept the burning hot water against his skin. I am so sad right now!

Our little guy is crazy sick right now. Its kinda gross. He has an endlessly runny nose, with snot everywhere. And the snot bugs him, so he rubs it around his face trying to get it off. Seriously, his hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes are plastered with cruddy snot.

No picture today though... doesn't that make you grateful?

Grandpa great has puppies, so on Halloween we went to visit them! Colby has never been around puppies before, he's more familiar with dogs the size of horses. So to have 9 wiggly puppies crawling all over you and licking you can be quite overwhelming!
Colby and the mama. He loved being around her.

Freaked out when this one jumped all over him... I think this is the one that completely knocked him over with his kisses.

and then they just kept coming...and coming...
and coming...
and coming.
Poor Colby!

Proud Mama Moment

So I've come to terms with it. Colby is a mini-Daddy. In looks, attitude, and personality. It could be a lot worse, I'm sure. However, there is one thing that I share with my son. Colby is a lover of books. Yup, this is a mommy trait. I've always devoured books, reading everyday for hours. I see this in Colby so much. He's been able to turn pages since he was 5 months old. He will point at objects in the book and try to name them. He'll turn each page, and once done, he'll start over. And honestly, if there was just one thing I could pass down to my son, that would be it. Makes me soooo happy!

Colby took his first steps on Halloween! He's been attempting to walk for awhile now, but has never ever let go of us willingly. Now he thinks its the funnest game to walk back and forth between us. I think its so adorable. What a brave and strong little boy!
