First Father's Day

I think Chad had a pretty good Father's Day.  We started our morning with Colton sleeping in until 6:45!  It was great!  Then we opened up presents!  Colton got his daddy a Mr. Dad t-shirt, a fishing rod organizer, and a Mickey Mouse fishing pole!

Then we headed out to the Children's Museum.  I think we had more fun than Colton did!  He did really well though.  He walked most of it, played really well, and even rode the carousel!













Look at this little stinker!

Colton & Dakota

I get asked alot if Dakota does well with Colton ... well ... I'd say she tolerates the exploring little guy pretty well!

Colton likes to grab her tail and instead of snipping at him, she just licks his hand and distracts him.

Oh ... and check out Colton's headbutt ... that's something he's picked up at daycare but it's his way of showing affection. He's too cool for kisses ... so he headbutts.

Colton's Lump and Some Pictures

I took Colton to the ENT specialist today.  It's not a cyst like the pediatrician thought ... it's just a lymph node.  I guess what was throwing them off is the location of the lymph node.  It's a little higher than usual but nothing to worry about.

Here are some pictures of Colton over the past month:

10 Month Update ... a little late

This is going to be quick because we're halfway through his 10th month so I'll do a big update when he turns 11 months. 

We forgot to measure Colton's length but at one of our doctor visits we've had lately for his ears, Colton was up to 26.3 pounds!!  He's set to go to an Ear Nose Throat Specialist tomorrow to have a bump behind his ear looked at.  It was swollen the size of a marble but has gone down.  It was probably due to his ear infections but we still want to have it looked at.

Colton's just amazing right now! He switches to the 1 year room on Monday, June 21st. He's so smart and such a goofball. It's the best.

WHAT COLTON HAS BEEN UP TO LATELY:
  • Colton is allergic to Amoxicillin.  We found this out after he was given the medicine for a double ear infection over Memorial Day.  He broke out in a bad rash all over his back, stomach, neck and face which is odd because he's had Amoxicillin before. 
  • He loves to eat! He's really good with finger foods and eats everything.  He likes to pretend to give you a puff and then quickly put it in his mouth and start to laugh.
  • He loves to flip his fingers across his bottom lip to make noises.
  • He can look at a ball and say "ba". He loves to throw!
  • He drinks from a straw ... it's so cute!
  • Oh yeah ... he can WALK!! And just last night he actually stood up without any support and then took off walking. He can also change direction and stop without falling over.  He also flips his ear when he walks for some reason.
  • His 7th tooth just broke through this weekend.
  • He will point to things that he wants now.
There's probably lots more but these are some of the main things going on right now.  I'll post some pictures soon too.
