July 31


We got to meet up with two of Garet's sisters and their family's for lunch!  It was so great to see them!

July 30

Feeling fancy.

We went to Sunset Beach for most of the day, then after dinner we decided to pick up some "fancy" desserts from a nice restaurant in town. 

July 29

Downtown Wilmington.

Colin's cousin Kathryn came to visit this weekend!  We went to UNC Wilmington for a tour, then we walked around downtown... we came across this neat little cafe - Karen's Cafe! (Karen is Kathryn's mom)

Colin got to see his Aunt Kailey, then had a doctors appointment (you can read about it here), then had his cousin Kathryn come for the weekend!  What a good day!

July 26

Looking at my grandparents.

I bought a book that I could put pictures in right before Colin was born, I put pictures of our family in it so that Colin could see them anytime.  Anytime Colin goes to his bookshelf, he always pulls this book off the shelf.

Good bye tower.

Garet and I had fun building towers with Colin's toys... but every time we got one built, Colin came to destroy it!  =)

Time sure does fly when you're having fun!

Trust me... this is nothing... Colin was just getting started =)
Garet does bath time most nights, and Colin just LOVES to splash in the water!  Everything is soaked by the time bath is over!

Snack time.

Love this sweet boy!

Playing in the Tupperware.

Funny what keeps Colin entertained while I get dinner ready.

July 18

Playing in my room.

Colin has so much fun playing in his room!  He has started throwing things... right after I took this he threw his shoes, then crawled to pick them up, then threw them, then crawled... too cute!

I love when mommy reads to me...

Sweet boy.
I had fun playing with my camera this afternoon.  Can't get a better subject.  Colin is just so sweet.

July 13

A little cookie with that icing.

Garet has found a new dessert... putting icing on a cookie.  We were about out of icing, so he just finished it.

Too cool.

Colin is finally getting some hair!  And it is red! 
(Excuse the food on the face... and in the mouth!)

July 11

Playing with daddy.

Colin and I hung out with Aunt Kailey all day... when we got home Garet took over.  This is how he kept Colin in one place!

July 10

View from the kitchen.

I love when Garet and Colin get some father/son time, and I get to catch glimpses of their bond.

Camo pants.
Colin is pulling up on everything possible, and he absolutely loves it!

July 8


My sweet boy.  I had almost forgot to take a picture... but I got one in after I put Colin to bed.  I also wanted to document that he is wearing his "big boy" pajamas.

Frozen toy.

Colin has two of his bottom teeth, and I see two of his top ones sooo close to popping through.  Looks like he likes this cold toy on his gums!

July 5

Hanging out on the bed.

Oh - by the way, Suzi isn't allowed on our bed.
I got Colin ready to go to the pool, and when I got downstairs... this is what Suzi was doing.  Notice the crumpled sheets...  Crazy girl.

Radio Flyer.

We went over to our friends, Elliot and Melissa's, house to grill out today.  Their daugher Ella Jane (16 months) was nice enough to share her wagon with Colin.  We will have to get one of these... he loved it!

Sunset Beach.

We had the best day!  Got to the beach early, Colin took a nap, we ate lunch, headed home, Colin took another nap, then we grilled out!  Perfect.

July 1

Catching up with Grandmama.

I was chatting with my mom while Colin was swinging.  Garet came out and snapped a picture.

June 30


I have started putting Colin in his Pack n Play while I get ready in the mornings.  It saves a lot of time!  Lately I spend half the morning chasing him around while I brush my teeth!  haha

June 29

So curious.
Colin is getting into everything!  He seems to find the one thing that he's not allowed to get... funny how that happens =)

June 28

Matching mom.

I put Colin in his new Curious George shirt and when I came downstairs Garet noticed that we matched =)
