May 30

Memorial Day.

Thank you to all of our troops! 

May 29

No mom, I'm not eating sand.

We enjoyed the morning hanging out at Folly Beach.  And, by the way, Colin loved the beach this time!  (and he loved the sand...)

May 28

Taking a quick nap.
We went to the aquarium, had lunch, then walked ALL around downtown Charleston.  My sweet boy was tired!  This was at the Battery.  We grabbed some ice cream after that, and then Colin woke up... just in time for the pool =)

May 27


We headed to Charleston for the long Memorial weekend, and to celebrate our anniversary!  It was so beautiful!

Colin learning to drive the dune buggy with his Papaw.

P.S.  He loves my dad's beard!!!

May 25

Best buds.

They love each other!

May 24

Doing chores.

I had Colin helping me with laundry.  He loves to get a shirt (or sock, or bib... really he's not picky) and shake it as hard as he can!  It is so funny!  That is what he was doing with the few pieces of clothing in his lap.

Eight months old.

My baby is growing too fast!!

May 22

Eating Mexican.

This color looks crazy in this picture - it is with Garet's phone.
We decided to get out and check out the Mexican restaurant in town (yes, I believe there is only one).  And lucky for us it was a hit!

Row row row your boat.

Colin wanted to test out his new float before we put it in the water.

Waiting on Daddy.

There is so much wrong with this picture: it's blurry, Suzi got in the shot, Colin is getting licked, it's dark...
but I love it.  I was trying to get a shot of Colin and Suzi kept getting in the way.  But look how happy Colin is!  =)
We were anxiously waiting on Garet to get home from being gone for a week for work!

- and yes that is a whisk that my boy is playing with -

May 17

Swim time.

Garet was able to take a break from work and join us for a swim!  Colin loved it!  It took him a bit to get used to being in the water - but once he realized it was okay, he had so much fun!

Playing in the pool.

After some coaxing... Colin got in the pool!  And we captured a smile! (even if it was his only one)

May 15

Helping Mom in the kitchen.

I baked some cookies and Colin helped =)

May 14

Playing with Daddy.

We got rocking chairs for our front porch, we we LOVE sitting out front!  These two were playing and I just had to snap a picture!

Garet and my dad were power washing the deck, while we watched in the front yard =)

Trading hats.

My parents are here!  Papaw and Colin switched hats... Colin can barely see!

Shake, shake, shake.

Colin loves to shake his toys!

Look up.

Colin stays so busy!  It is getting hard to keep him entertained.  If all else fails, we go on a walk - he loves walks as much as we do!

May 8

Mother's Day.

Oh, how blessed I am!

May 7

Family lunch.

Before we headed back home, we had a nice lunch at Garet's dad's house with all his sisters and their kids.  It was a beautiful day!

May 6

Great Grandpa Steve.

We had a memorial service for Garet's Grandmother - then got to spend a wonderful night with the whole family!  It is so great to have Colin around his family!  He loved hanging out with all his cousins, grandparents, and great grandfather!  (and so did we!!)

May 5

Yummy carrots.

We went to Bethesda, MD... we stopped on the way for some dinner.  Colin really likes his food... but he LOVES to pick up peas, green beans, bananas, puffs and feed himself!

May 4


Colin and I went to Lowes today... boy he gets excited when he is in the cart!  This was the clearest picture I had - he kept moving and jumping around!

May 3

Busy boy.

Colin loves this independence of sitting up and playing!  And he talks allll the time!  It is absolutely precious!  He really has so much to say - I only wish I knew what he was saying to me =)

May 2

Close up.

Love this boy.
We have so much fun.

Suzi is always close by while we are playing.

April 30

Long day.

We went to Wilmington for the day for a friends 30th birthday.  It is only an hour drive, but my sweet boy was exhausted for the drive back.
