SEVEN months!!!

Dear time, please slow down!!

My little Coli-bear turned 7 months already and I am falling in love with this little baby more and more every day. He has such a sweet spirit and has added so much to our little family! We are SO blessed!

This month, Colin's biggest milestone is the fact that he has become mobile! Watch out world, here he comes! He has also learned to go from his stomach into a sitting position and is starting to climb up on things also.

He definitely recognizes the sign for "milk" now and has started doing it himself (with a lot of enthusiasm!) when he is hungry. I'm hoping that he will follow in his big brother's foot steps and start recognizing other signs soon. I'm trying to be more consistent with signing to him when I say certain words I want him to learn.

Colin is growing like a weed! He isn't eating a lot of baby food (aka purees) but he loves anything that we are eating. He has tried plain toast, banana, mango, spaghetti noodles, rice, green beans, cucumbers, and a few other things. At this point food is mainly just a learning tool so I'm not concerned that he is not overly interested yet. Food before one is just for fun after all! He'd be happy just drinking his milk all day and snacking on whatever we are eating.

Another HUGE milestone that we have reached (and probably the most exciting one for me) is that he now sleeps through the night every single night. We made the decision to move him to his own room because none of us were getting any sleep with him sleeping in his pack n play in our bedroom. Within 3 nights of making the move he was sleeping all night. I wish we had done it sooner!

He usually goes to bed between 7-7:30 pm and he sleeps straight through until about 7:30 in the morning. It is the most amazing feeling ever. Thank you Coli-bear!!

I'm not sure how much he weighs now or how tall he is but he has finally started getting too big for size 0-3 months. Now he is wearing mostly 3-6 month clothes and some 6-9 months as well. He's not my itty bitty baby anymore!! *tear*

Colin is the most loving little boy and he has a smile for anyone that wants one. He is easy going and just a very happy baby. I can't imagine not having him as part of our family!

Well, those are my updates. Guess what time it is now!?! That's right, PHOTOBOMB!!!
just hanging out with big brother

This child LOVES carbs. Give him bread and he always needs two fists to get it in quick enough...

Aidan spent two nights away from home and they missed each other a lot!

Push ups!

"This stuff is weird mom"

"I'm gonna eat you 'nana!"

Harleigh doesn't want to miss out on anything
