Bathtime with daddy!

Coley took his first bath in the "bath ring" the other night. I went to the grocery and daddy bathed him. He like this so much better than the baby tub! He can splash and play with toys! Maybe the Easter Bunny will bring him some bath toys!
I am posting several items and pics today to try to catch up, my camera is about to explode with pics!

Colton's first visit to the Memphis Zoo

Isn't this hysterical?!?! This giraffe was thirsty and tried repeatedly to get lower and lower to the water.

Smiley boy, he loved being outside!

Sleepy baby!

Ok, some days I feel like this Hippo! I found out that they don't sweat, but they do secrete this red stuff that helps keep them cool and protects them from the sun. Wow!

Tuesday, Coley and I were on Spring Break--they weather was amazing - so we packed up and headed to the zoo. What a fun day. Colton loved being outside and we loved it too. Thanks to Angie Ware we had a coupon for $4 bucks off of each of our admissions. Sweet! We would love to have a zoo membership so we could go all the time. He only slept for about 20 minutes and was happy all day! We even had to use sunscreen on his chubby legs! Can't wait to go back!

warm days are here! well, for a little while at least...

The temps have been crazy warm here in Memphis. This weekend was so nice, we were able to hang out downtown on a patio after the game Saturday. Flip Flop weather--yessss!
This pic was taken today after mom, colton, and i went for a walk. He fell asleep in the hammock.
He loves to be outside! Can you believe that a week ago there was snow on the ground?

Flat Stanley Comes To Town

My cousin, MaryLou, is reading the book Flat Stanley for school. She lives in Charleston SC, but wanted for her "Flat Stanley" to visit us in Memphis. So, here he is having a blast with Colton.
Dad even took him to Orlando to get in some tanning at the pool.

Flat Stanley arrived in Memphis on the day of the snow, bet he doesn't see much of that in Charleston! Last I heard Flat Stanley is visiting Grandpa and Grandma in Gulf Shores. He ought to be really tan when he arrives back to MaryLou!
BTY...I am so doing this with my class next year!

my sweet baby boy is back!

Paige and Coley at Alfreds before Saturdays game vs Tulane, Go Tigers!
James, Colton, and Kimmie

It has been a rough week here at the Mays house. Tuesday was Colton's 2nd day of school and he had a horrible day. Screamed all day long. It is so nice having him there with me because I am able to go down and check in on him, or even TRY to console him when he needs it. Well, even i was unable to console him. I took him to the Dr Wednesday after a long night of no sleep and lots of crying. They determined it wasn't his ears or his teeth. So what is it? Blisters and Ulcers lining his sweet little throat. He was in so much pain. It was a virus, so Dr. Miller prescribed some meds with Codine for pain. We also did some blood work, his white count was elevated, so they gave him a shot of recefrin (sp?) to knock out any looming infection. Wednesday night was just as rough if not worse than the night before. All the screaming and moaning irritated his throat even more. Thursday we returned for more blood work, the white count came back down--yay! bad news, we have to ride out the blisters. Poor guy was not eating, and lost almost a pound in just 2 days. We all know he loves his food, hehe. Well, each day has been better and he is eating again--even squash and sweet potatoes. Thanks for your prayers and concerns. We are all sleeping and happy again!

This was supposed to be his 16 week check up, but with the illness we will wait until the week after next. Can you believe that he Will be 18 weeks on Thursday?!?!?!?

25 1/2 inches, 18.4 lbs

Colton's first...

SNOW!! Memphis received quite a snow storm yesterday after the game. The Mays packed up and headed to the Conways for a slumber party. I fixed "brinner" for everyone. It was nice and relaxing. This was what we woke up to the morning. Isn't Don and Debbie's backyard gorgeous?!?!?!
Daddy and Colton

Mommy and Colton

Roxy LOVED the snow!!!
Now, bring on the spring--PLEASE!

Day games

The Tigers had a day game on Saturday. We love day games. Colton is always in such a good mood.
