It's not safe on the roads anymore ...

One thing that I've learned about myself since I've become a parent is that I marvel in Colton learning new things.  I know he's supposed to but I guess it just makes me proud to see him discover new things and to learn new things.  Like I created this brilliant little being!  It's amazing!  And yesterday I couldn't have been a prouder parent (trust me you'll hear it!). 

Colton got a Schwinn Roadster tricycle from Santa and he wasn't quite tall enough at Christmas to ride it.  He's always had interest in it and has slowly progressed from being pushed, to moving his little legs to make it move, to trying to put his feet on the pedals, to doing a couple revolutions but not quite having the strength to get it to go anywhere ... but last night ... everything changed!

Easter Egg Hunt

We attended an Easter Egg Hunt at my work this past weekend.  Despite the gloomy weather, we had a good time!

Coloring with Bumpaw

 "When does the Easter Bunny get here?"

In line waiting to see the Easter Bunny!

"What is going on?!?!?"

"I'm outta here!"

"Did you all see that Bunny?  Crazy!"

 Taking off before the start!

"Green ... blue ... pink ... purple ..."
 "Here mom ... hold my basket ... I can collect more this way!"

 Checking out all the goodies we got in our eggs!

20 Months

I cannot believe that Colton will be 2 in 4 months!  It is an absolutely amazing thing to see him grow up ... to watch him learn ... to see his personality evolve.  I am in love with being a mommy for sure!

Colton changes too much anymore to try and keep track of all the new things he does ... some of the big ones this month have been:
  • We became mommy and daddy (instead of mama and dada).  I love it!  I don't know why all of a sudden it changed but I'll take it!
  • His bottom right 2 year molar came in!
  • He knows and uses the word "sorry".  We use the put your nose to the wall punishment and he'll walk over, put his nose on the wall for 2 seconds, and then turn around and tell us he's sorry.  Little stinker!  He'll also tell you he's sorry if he knows he did something that hurt you (accidentally scratch you etc).
  • He points out all of his boo boos and tells you to kiss them! If you ask him where he got his boo boo from, he always says "Doh-wa" which is our dog. And believe me, they aren't all from her.

     Happy St. Patrick's Day
     Mickey Shades!
     The worst thing for a kid ... to go from beautiful spring weather to chilly weather!  He hated to wear those gloves!
     So Mommy let him take his gloves off :)
     This kid is hilarious!
     Obsessed with washing his hands!
     T-R-O-U-B-L-E!
     He loves unrolling the toilet paper!
     You're a mean one ... Mr. Grinch!
     Cool dude!
     What's up dog?

Family Pictures!

We did family pictures and Easter pictures this past weekend.  The family pictures turned out great but Colton wouldn't really cooperate by himself for his Easter pictures.  Oh well right!
