Collin update


This is an old picture, but I realized I hadn't taken any over the last couple of weeks, but I still love this one.


Collin had his 9 month check up last week (a week late) and he weighed 15.13 pounds (not even on the charts), 28.5 inches long (50th length) and I can't remember his head, but it is between 75-90th percentile. So, of course now we are more focused on the eating better thing. The last couple of weeks we have seen a little bit of progress in that category, but still working on it. We went and got oatmeal cereal instead of rice cereal and that seems a bit better. He likes to eat Puffs and he sometimes likes green beans and applesauce.
Collin's doctor said he is very active and very social, which made me laugh because he gives so many people the staredown most of the time. Just this last week though, and even since the doctor visit, he REALLY wants to interact with people. He isn't crawling yet, but he wants to move so badly, it kills him that he doesn't know how to do it yet. He scoots backwards and just rolls all over the place, so we are excited to pass that milestone soon.
In other milestones, he had his first "happy" big boy tub experience tonight, in that he liked sitting up in the regular tub, not his infant tub. That was exciting. He was able to splash around and we got to whip out the "pirate rubber ducky" which was too funny. He also LOVES to be outside. He tries to eat the leaves on the trees, and the bark, but luckily, not yet.
He also has his first little cold and it's so sad. I just saw today that his one little nostril is starting to run...boo hoo! And he is cutting his fifth tooth (the top other middle one). Stilll has his blue tooth, but hopefully that will go away soon.
At all costs, this little guy just melts my heart and makes me so glad I'm his mommy!

He is probably old enough for yogurt too. Miriam loved that stuff when she was a baby! We are so excited to have Collin at our house tomorrow!!!!

Great update on your kid. If he doesn't want to eat sometimes you just have to force feed that little kid. Give him some good Coney's Custard or a burger. We shall see ya this weekend

I still think that boy should be entered into the Cutest Baby EVER contest.

Seriously, every mommy thinks they have the cutest kids, but your little guy is an absolute doll, so you're completely justified in thinking so! :)
