I have been SO BAD about blogging. Ill spare you the excuses and just say I've been slackin. You should see my house, lol. Colton has been battling an ear infection in his left ear for 30+ days. 3 rounds of antibiotics and still no relief. Poor guy.
The above picture was taken on a hayride at Priddy Farms. We went with the Huffmans last Sunday. SO fun for the kiddos!
My handsome boy, can you believe he will be 1 next week?!?!?!

10 months!

10 months ago God blessed us with our sweet baby boy!
I can't believe he was ever so small!
Just look at him now!

He wears mostly 24 month clothing and weighs 27 lbs. He is crawling everywhere and pulling up on everything. Colton has 3 teeth and 3 more on the way! He loves to clap and play! Thank you Lord for blessing our lives with this sweet angel!

This was a recent trip to the zoo!

That crazy panda just laid right by the glass, Colton thought it was so funny!

Steele Visit

Colton's new way to ride in the Jogger--the basket!
seriously, he climbed down in there. too funny! we thought he was sleeping!
finally, at the beach!
Yay! I love the sand!

he was so happy on the beach and loved the water.

Colton and Nanny


Hanging out with Pops

It was a quick, but fabulous trip to visit Pop and Nanny. Colton wasn't a fan of the beach in June, but is a total Beach bum now!

go cubs go

Josh and I went to Chicago in August to celebrate his 29th birthday. He is a huge Cubs fan, and I thought it would be an awesome weekend away! Above is a pic of the stadium.

The trip was great even thought the Cubbies lost BOTH games! We stayed at the Westin, Magnificent Mile. Rode the L -- ate good food, and enjoyed great weather! Happy Birthday Honey!

on the move

we are crawling now...everywhere! it is kind of an army crawl, but hey--he's mobile. his favorite things to do--try to get into the dog bowls, chase the dog, pull on blinds, and head for the sockets. wow, i am getting a workout! have to buy baby gate and more socket covers when we get back in town. i promise to post crawling pics soon.
we are off to the lake this afternoon! happy 4th!
