7 months

Colby is SEVEN months old!

You weigh 18 lbs 10 oz

You are wearing some 6-9 or 6-12 month clothes.
You wear a size 3 diaper.

You are a great sleeper. You sleep from about 7 pm until 6 am. You take two naps-one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

You are the happiest baby. Everyone always comments on how easy going and sweet you are.

You are always on the go. You crawl everywhere and you're pretty fast. You love to crawl, crawl, crawl and then turn around and see how far you went. It's adorable.

You pull up on everything. You have started to master falling backwards which makes momma happy. You were falling forward and banging your head on everything about a week ago. We've gone through
lots of bumps and bruises already. :(

You LOVE to eat. You take about 4-5 bottles a day and eat between 2 and 4 ozs baby food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You really love pears and the only food you haven't liked is avocados.

You went to your first Storm game this week and loved watching Daddy and Uncle Justin coach.

You love sitting in high chairs in restaurants. You bounce up and down and try to make them rock. It makes me nervous but you think you're riding a pony!

I love you more and more by the second. You are truly the greatest gift God has ever given me and I'm so grateful he chose me to be your mommy!

It's been a VERY long time blog world but I'm back!

Well, a lot has happened. Colby Samuel Crowder was born July 30th, 2011. He came in at a whopping 7 lbs 10 ozs and 21 3/4 inches long. I've never experienced love at first sight quite like it. I knew I loved him before he even took a single breath outside of the womb but WOW. When he was finally in my arms after YEARS of waiting for such a sweet gift...I can't even describe it. Amazing.

Now our life is full of craziness and insane amounts of joy. Colby is into EVERYTHING. He crawls everywhere and is starting to pull up to stand at the couch and in his crib. He talks all the time and is always happy. I really can't believe how blessed I am.

I really want to be better at this blog thing, mostly for myself so I can go back and read about everything that's been going on, but there's nothing too eventful to write at this second. I'll leave you with a picture of the sweetest boy I know :)
