Our little boy is 3 months!!!



So Collin is now 3 months, where has the time gone? Adam and I can't believe we've been parents for 3 months. Collin is growing and becoming more alert and fun everyday. He still can bust through just about every swaddle and doesn't really like to go to bed or sleep through the night, but what baby does. He has been doing a few new things lately, today and yesterday he was trying his hardest to sit up, which is quite impressive. Of course he couldn't do it without help but he kept using those little ab muscles and got like a fourth of the way there, way to go Collin. He's also making all kinds of adorable baby noises that just make us laugh. He's getting louder and louder and it's so fun. It's also really easy to make him laugh, which of course makes us do all kinds of crazy things to get a laugh out of him, it's adorable, that little toothless grin that just melts our hearts. Also today when I was holding him up so he could stand he was taking all kinds of steps, no he's not going anywhere, but it was fun to see him move his feet. We're are having so much fun playing with this little squirt, but we sure don't want him to grow up too fast, we're enjoying each phase as it comes. The first two pictures we took on his 3 month mark, the other pictures are adorable pictures we've taken the last few weeks.


We love this little bear sweater and this face is adorable

Look at those skinny little legs

This is the classic thoothless Collin smile

ATTACK OF THE KILLER PLUMS!!!

I know what you're thinking, how could you make that adorable little boy cry, but really it isn't that hard and he was smiling just a few seconds before I took this shot. I am including the following lame pun only to humor Adam... Collin is crying because he is plum-tuckered out. HA HA!! You may think it's funny, but please don't laugh it only encourages further lame jokes and puns.

So really we love this picture because one, it is so sad but oh so cute and two, because we have this crazy, old, dying plum tree in the backyard that produces delicious plums and it will be fun to look back and remember this fun little apartment with all it's quirks.
