A little pool fun

Today Colby and I headed over to my parent's house to go swimming! He woke up this morning a little fussy and didn't quite see himself...this is probably due to the 4 shots he had yesterday! He loved the pool though! That seemed to refresh him and make him feel better! I was glad to get in myself it had been a couple of weeks since our last pool date with the grandparents! Afterwards we had to stop by the grocery store we needed milk. Its crazy how fast we go through that stuff now that Colby is on whole milk. Although buying 2 gallons of milk a week for like 10 dollars is nothing compared to buying one can of formula for 30! So I am not complaining! It just seems like we are always running low! So we went to the store and grabbed a few other items as well! I got some panini's for dinner tonight! I hope Austin likes them! I really haven't been in the mood to cook today so I figured something we could just heat up would be great but still not too bad for us! Anyway Colby was very good in the grocery store I was proud of him! Once we got home I fed him some lunch and put him down for his nap! I know he will sleep for awhile after swimming and plus with the after effects of the shots! Poor baby he still doesn't act like he feels wonderful! I hope by tomorrow he is up and at em with full force again b/c he has been so good this week! I think we are going to stay home tomorrow unless something comes up at the last minute! Sundays are always such busy days and a day at home once in awhile is a much needed thing around here!

Colby's 1 Year Checkup

This is Colby enjoying his cake at his birthday party!

Hi everyone! This is my first post. This is not something I thought I would ever do so we'll see how it goes. I like the idea though of keeping a journal of Colby growing up! He is already a year old and I wish I had this from last year! It would be great to see my thoughts and expectations looking back with a newborn! Anyway just an update! Colby is 1 years old now! His birthday was last week and his party was last Saturday! Both were lots of fun! Its just hard to believe he's a toddler now...officially a BIG boy!

Well today we had his 1 year checkup! He is a healthy, growing boy! I am so thankful that his first year went by with nothing major to report medically. In fact he only went to the doc maybe twice besides his normal checkups! What a blessing! Well today went great. He weighs 25.5 lbs now. Only gained 1 lb since his 9 month. They say that is normal I could even tell that he hasn't gained that much weight. He is so active and mobile these days he works it all off I think. He was 31 1/2 inches. He had also only grown an inch since 9 months too! He is still in the 75% percentile though for both! So he is still a pretty big boy! He got 4 shots today. This was not fun at all to watch. He did well though...he cried during but was quickly consoled as soon as he was back in mommy's arms!

The rest of the day was good...I thought he might be extra cranky after all those shots but so far no different! He took a good nap and was definitely ready for bed by 8:30 tonight! Well that is all the major happenings for now!
