September 25

Having fun.

We had so much fun with Garet's mom and her husband, Rod!  It is so nice to have family come visit - and it was especially nice to be able to celebrate Colin!

September 24

Birthday party cupcake.

Colin loved his cupcake!  He didn't make too much of a mess, but he did manage to get his cake hand in my face =)
We had a great time celebrating his FIRST birthday!

September 23

Birthday boy.

My sweet Colin Davis Beane is one today!  We fall more in love with each passing day! 

"No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you're the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside."
(HERE is his 12 month picture)

September 22

New technology.

Rod just learned about Angry Birds on his iPad and my dad just learned some new game app on Garet's iPhone. 

September 21

Having fun with Grandma Kay.

Garet's mom and Rod came to visit before Colin's birthday!  We are having so much fun!

September 20

Can I please have some.

Sweet Suzi with Colin's snack.  She gets as close as possible, then when Colin is finished she can get the leftovers.

September 19

Staying warm.

It has been pretty chilly here!  My sweet boy is loving getting bundled up - even if some of his long sleeves/pants are a little too big =)

September 18

Game day.

We cheered on the Panthers on Sunday... we lost, but it was a good game. 
Unfortuantely I've been pretty sick (sinus infection), but finally I'm feeling better!  Just in time for visitors (Garet's mom) and a birthday party (Colin's) and a new niece (Morgan)!  Yay!

September 17

Workin' hard.

We headed to Wilmington for the day - we had to stop by Garet's office so he could drop off some paperwork.  While there Colin had a blast playing in the chairs and exploring.
In the picture we were rolling up and down the hallway =)

September 16

Big cup.

Colin loves to drink out of my cup.  Anytime I take a sip, he wants to take a sip... and he ends up finishing all of my water!

September 15

Sweet babies.

Suzi is so good with Colin.  He will crawl up to her and pat her, and try to climb over her.  He will pull up on her to stand, and she will just stay in one place while he is balancing.  They are so sweet together.  Though, Suzi can sometimes get a little carried away with her kisses =)

September 14


Colin has started taking some steps!  And every time he does he smiles soo big! 
Now he takes this toy and practically runs across the room!

September 13

Hanging in the car seat.

We brought Colin's car seat inside (which we never do) and he found it.  And he had a blast climbing all over it!

September 12

Waiting for the mail.

How cute are these two?!

Happy Birthday Suzi.
She is the best dog!

September 10

Laid back.
This is Colin's new thing.  Lounging.

September 9

Found the sucker.

Garet and I have this game we play... it started a LONG time ago.  We have this blue sucker, and Garet will hide it somewhere for me to find... then I will hide it for him to find.  We never admit when we've found it, we just re-hide it for the other person.  It is always fun to find it - it always makes me smile =)

September 8

Love them.

Seriously.  I love them.

Oh and Suzi isn't allowed on the bed.  In case you were wondering =)

September 7

Kailey and her babies.

We had fun hanging out! 

September 6

Delivering goodies.

Colin and I took Kailey some of her shower gifts that wouldn't fit in her car (from a couple weeks ago).  Morgan's nursery is precious! 

September 5

Reading with Daddy.

I tried to sneak up on these boys to snap a picture... but it looks like I was spotted!

September 4

Helping in the kitchen.

Garet decided to make Oreo milkshakes... so he needed to crush some Oreos... guess who wanted to help?

September 3


Enjoying a snack after naptime.

September 2

Eating on the go.

We took a trip to Wilmington (and I got a bike!  YAY!!), then Colin and I watched Garet put on a school assembly for work.  We ended up cutting our time short, so we had to have lunch in the car.  What an experience.  From now on, I will try to plan better!  =)
P.S. I forgot to bring a bib (hence the burp cloth draped over Colin) and a spoon (for me to scrape the food onto the plate bowl lid)... we were both a mess, but as you can see... Colin loved it!

September 1

Staying warm.

The mornings have been really cool - and our walks have been great!

August 31

Going through the mail.
What a big helper!  Colin sorted through the mail and figured out what was trash =)

August 30


This is how Colin sleeps... with his butt up and his hands tucked up under him.  Makes me want to just jump in the crib and cuddle up with him! 

August 29

What a tease.

Poor Suzi... the neighborhood cats like to tease her.  They will come and lay in our driveway, or when she is in the backyard they will walk along the outside of the fence next to her.
(Not that Suzi would do anything if she actually got to one of them!  The last time she interacted with a cat, the cat hissed at her and she went running!  haha)

August 28

Our view nowadays.

We see a lot of this lately.  Colin is so busy, he has to see and know everything going on =)
He isn't walking on his own yet, but give him something that moves and he will push it around the whole house!
