Summertime and the livin's easy

Wow I can't believe it's already August. Where does all the time go? We have had a fabulous summer so far. Here are a few of the highlights.

May: Trip to Arizona

June: We spent a week in Lake Powell with Kristopher's family. We had so much fun!

On the last day I woke up with horrible pains. I ended up staying a few days in the hospital and having my gallbladder removed. This cute little picture was taken while I was gone having some test taken.


4th of July was spent in Bear Lake. My father in law got a beautiful cabin for the weekend. We spent a lot of time relaxing, playing games and eating way too much food.

July 24th: This was my official first July 24th in Utah. We started the day with the big parade. Colin really enjoyed it, but got scared when the motor cops would make their sirens loud. We then had a family BBQ which was a lot of fun. And we finished the night with fireworks. It was a great day spent with our family!

Somewhere in all of this, Colin had his 9 month checkup.

His stats:
Height: 27 1/2 inches (25%, Yay for a growth spurt!)
Weight: 16 LBS 13 Oz. (Less than 5%)

What Colin is up to these days:
Standing on everything
Crawling up the stairs
Yells "MA MA" to get my attention.
Eats his purees still, but I'm feeding him more and more table food
FINALLY got his first tooth. He is no longer our little toothless wonder.
He makes this funny face where he squints his eyes and has this goofy grin.
Still gives lots of kisses
Claps anytime you say to clap, sing patty cake, or say YAY
Loves to give high fives, bonk his head against yours, and waves bye bye with both hands. He hasn't realized yet that one hand is all it takes.

He is so much fun right now. We are loving his little personality and love watching him learn new things. We are getting to go to Mesquite for Kristopher's grandparents 50th wedding anniversary in a couple of weeks. Then the end of August we will be in Orlando for a couple of weeks seeing my parents. I am going to be so sad when summer comes to an end! And here's his 10 month shot since that's where he's at now.

I had no idea you had you gallbladder removed. Scary.

I love the picture of you guys at the lake. Probably because I like seeing Colin's rosy cheeks.
