9 Months Old


Colyn you turned 9 months old on September 28.  Only a few short months and you will already be a year old.  Here is what is going on in your world.

  • You weigh 18 lbs. 2 oz. and you are 27 1/2 inches long.
  • You wear mostly 6-9 months clothes but can wear some 9-12 months and still some 3-6 month onesies because you a skinny little thing.
  • You have started eating finger foods and really like cheese puffs!
  • You love your bottle but will drink from a sippy cup.
  • You have the cutest crawl, we call it the pimp crawl because you keep on leg up and crawl on the other leg, LOL!
  • You are pulling up on everything and cruising around pushing toys and holding on to things with one hand.
  • You FINALLY have two bottom teeth (I did not think they were ever going to come in).  You cut them 2 weeks ago.  It wasn’t too bad just a little fever.
  • You are such a happy, smiling baby.
  • You are mostly a Momma’s boy but Daddy can get you to calm down and fall asleep in a flash.
  • You sleep in your crib and will fall asleep on your own most of the time.


You love to stick that tongue out!


You look like you are cheesing here.

Daddy, Jacob and I love you so very much and could not imagine life without you in it.  We can’t wait to see what all you have accomplished this month and the ones to come.

Don’t Jump


Fooled you right, HA!  After Colyn was poked and prodded at his doctor’s appointment he probably felt like jumping.  They have these huge windows overlooking the city.  Colyn liked banging on it to pass the time.


I am so happy to report that he does not have any more infection in his ear.  I will be back tomorrow with his 9 month update.  Happy Wednesday!

Me and My Boys


I love my little men!  I do not get my picture taken with both of them often enough so even if they aren’t looking I was happy they actually both sat down and cuddled with me.  Even if it was for 2 minutes, HA!  They are growing way too fast so I have to enjoy every chance I get of them being little.

Show Us Your Life-Master Bedroom

Kelly over at Kelly's Korner has started the Show Us Your Life series back on her blog this fall and I thought I might actually participate this year in a few of them.  This week is Master Bedrooms. 

This past winter while I was on maternity leave I decided it was time for us to finally get a king size bed. I wrote about it here.


The furniture is dark chocolate so it looks almost black.  The only thing that I do not like about it is that it shows dust pretty bad.


It was so hard to find something to fit in that little corner to hold our TV.   It is an odd size so most chests and armories will not fit there. 


This is looking in from the bathroom.  We do not have a door going into the bathroom just an open frame.  I also need to hang curtains, I just have not gotten there yet.


My favorite part of the whole room are the canvas prints I hung about my bed.  The ones on the ends are the boys feet when they were newborns and the middle two are Jacob at 2 weeks and Colyn at 1 day old.

I still have a lot that I would like to do in my bedroom but so far I am pretty happy with it.   Make sure you go see all the other bedrooms that are linked to Kelly’s blog.  Happy Friday!

This past weekend was full of firsts.  Jacob had his first soccer game and Colyn finally cut his first tooth.  Jacob did good for his first game, considering they had only had one practice EVER.  He played the first two quarters then a little boy from the other team ran into him and that was it, HA!  He said that he did not like that other team and he was done.  He had another practice this past Monday and did awesome, so hopefully today will go much smoother.

To add to last weekend, Colyn finally cut his first tooth.  He came home from daycare with a fever but acted fine, so I told Jarred that it might be his tooth.  Sure enough, Jarred put his finger in Colyn’s mouth and the tooth about cut it off.  That bad boy is sharp!  He was a trooper going to Jacob’s game and then having all of the guys over for the Bama game.  He is such a happy baby!

Playing Catch Up

So it has been a hot minute since I blogged so I guess I should catch up.  These past two weeks have been crazy in my personal and business life.  Now that I have a minute to catch up I will do just that. 

Labor Day weekend was a busy one; we watched Bama stomp San Jose State, played on the lake and spent time with family.  Here are a few pictures to capture all those moments.

8 Months Old

August10 053


You turned 8 months old on August 28th.  You are getting too big too fast!  I love  how now when I take your picture I can’t just prop you up in the corner of your crib anymore.  You will not be still to save your life!  This is about the best I could get this time because you were too busy standing up and moving all around.

August10 055

  • You weigh about 18 pounds and I’m not sure how long you are
  • You eat like a little pig!  You love almost all baby food, we still have not really tried any solids because you have no teeth yet.
  • You have tried apple juice out of a Sippy cup but you prefer your bottle hands down (I am afraid we are going to have a hard time getting rid of it).
  • You did try Mommy’s ice cream the other night and you thought that was pretty yummy, LOL.
  • You still wear size 3 diapers and can wear 3-6 and 6-9 month clothes (it all depends on what it is).
  • You are non-stop these days; crawling, pulling up on everything and trying to cruise.
  • You still babble and say da-da pretty clear.
  • You love your toys but would much rather play with your brother’s and he does not like that very much, LOL.
  • You love your brother so very much!  He makes you laugh all the time.
  • You sleep all night in your crib (something your brother never did).

We love you so much and love watching you grow and do new things every day.

First Day of 3K


Jacob’s first day of 3 year old Kindergarten was this past Monday.  He was so excited!  I am so excited for him too.  It was a lot easier dropping him off this year since he has been going to daycare for a year now.

His new school is on the A Beka program and it is amazing what they say he should know by the end of the year.  I am excited that he will be learning Bible verses and stories along with everything else like he did at his previous school.

It is really hard to believe that my tiny little boy is already three and learning so much.
