Grandbaby love.

Today is my parents last full day here, so they are getting in all the Colin time the can!

Wii with Papaw.

Garet and I got to get away for a date night last night, so Grandmama and Papaw babysat.  Looks like Colin got a lesson on the Wii  =)

Playing in the morning.

Colin loves being held up in the air!  We had fun this morning... and now we are awaiting the arrival of Grandmama and Papaw!!  Yay!

January 27


I don't eat that much dessert... but cookies are definitely my weakness.  I really enjoy baking and trying different recipes, and these were the best chocolate chip cookies!! (Recipe here - it's on the back of the bag.)

Hanging in my pjs.

After a long night... for baby and mom... we decided to hang out in our pjs for awhile today.  We are headed to church tonight, or we may have stayed in them all day!

Working with daddy.

Today we rode along with Garet to a couple meetings and a luncheon.  I think Colin was worn out after a days work =)

Future Scout.

Colin is sporting his scout hat - isn't it cute that they make them this small?!

I love him.

On one hand, I can't believe Colin has been here 4 months already!  On the other hand, I can hardly remember my life without him in it.

Got my nails done.

It was so nice to go get pampered while Garet watched Colin!  I haven't gotten a manicure in a long time!

Sunrise and Snow.

This morning we woke to a "dusting" of snow.  (Am I the only one that is sick of snow?!)  When the sun came up, it was so beautiful!

Band aids.

Poor baby had to get shots at his 4 month appointment today.  But on a good note, he is growing strong and healthy!

Meeting mom's friend.

My friend Natalie came over for the afternoon.  Colin enjoyed meeting her, and Suzi was SO excited to see her again!  (She dogsat for a week while we were out of town).

I got Colin dressed for church this morning, then Garet came into his room... they were wearing the same exact thing!

Don't judge a book by its cover.

We had some friends over for dinner last night.  I made bread...
I have no idea what went wrong for it to look like this - but at least it tasted good =)

Colin loves bath time!  Especially since I took out the sling, so now he just sits directly in the water.  And boy does he like to splash!!

Chef Boyar-Beane.

Tonight, Garet made a big pot of chili!  It was delicious!  And for dessert, I made some peanut butter cookies.  Yummy!  Now it's time to curl up on the couch, while the fire is going, and watch a movie.  What a great way to spend a snow night!

Snow baby.

We woke up this morning to a winter wonderland!  We probably got around 8 inches!
I'm not sure Colin really likes this weather...

Our little family.

We were headed to church this morning.  It's amazing how I used to always be on time... but now I am always just a little late all the time =)

It's a bird... It's a plane... It's COLIN!

He loves this!  And it helps him with his upper body strength.

Getting pampered.

Colin's nails were getting long, so I filed them this morning.  Now hopefully he will quit scratching his sweet face!

Sweet Dreams.

I was very confident when I loaded the car this morning with a baby and a 94 pound dog to go to the vet...
It decided to rain, it took over an hour, baby started crying... I am just thankful the staff is awesome and helped this mama out!
Needless to say we were all a bit tired after that adventure!

Getting our groove back.

After a trip, it is so nice to get home and back into our routine.  After doing all the laundry of course!

Family Love.

On our last day in Charlotte, we managed to get a picture of our whole family!  (we are just missing the dogs!)  I love hanging out with everyone =)
