sitting up & toppling over

Tuesday, October 28, 2014


just the past few days we've been working on sitting up and he loves it! i'll play on the ground with him sitting right in front of me so i can grab him before falling over. until i realized we could practice on our bed and if he falls, he'll tumble on the soft bedding! so here we are, practicing this morning and i HAD to grab my camera to document this moment. such a champ!

four months with colsen

Friday, October 24, 2014





here's some noteworthy things we learned about colsen this month:

+ in size 3 diapers -- we had way too many blowouts in the size 2
+ talks all the time! he coos, squeals, and screams!
+ stands up with help -- he has some strong legs for a little guy
+ his thighs are chunking up and get stuck when he sits in the bumbo seat
+ rolls from side to side and we're working on him getting to roll over
+ still obsessed with his hands and sucks on them all the time
+ likes to grab his toys and put them in his mouth - everything goes in the mouth these days...
+ loves it when we sing to him - favorites are 'itsy bitsy spider' and 'twinkle, twinkle little star'
+ grabs his toes, but only when they don't have socks on them
+ most likely he has an allergy to milk proteins doesn't come from my side of the fam! ;) so i'm off dairy while breastfeeding - the hardest part for me is no cheese :( but i'm hoping not eating dairy will help me shed some more of the baby weight, so it could be in my favor ;)

although he's too young to understand the holidays, it sure makes the fall season more exciting having a child to celebrate with! we're going to a halloween party tonight and i'm excited for what we'll be dressing up as a family this year :)

side to side


we've been working on getting him to roll over, but he's not a fan of being on his tummy... so for now,  he loves to roll side to side!
