a photo of colsen, once a week, every week for a year | week 33

 first of all, i love his long eye lashes! he takes after his dad with those :) second, i was so excited finally get a photo of his 6 teeth! four pearly whites on top, and two on the bottom. the four on top all grew in at once (no wonder he was teething so bad the second time around a few months ago)

we've moved!

Sunday, March 15, 2015



it was a stressful day closing our house AND moving in the same day (don't recommend doing that!) but with the help of awesome friends, we are officially moved in to our new house! it feels so great having our own place now and knowing that we can do whatever we want with decorating and doing projects on the house. we still don't have kitchen chairs and there's a few boxes left to be unpacked, but things are settling down and we are loving it.

eight months with colsen

Tuesday, March 3, 2015



+ now has 6 six teeth! 2 on the bottom, 4 on the top (that are coming in the same time)
+ sitting up great and rarely falls over - his posture is better
+ loves eating cheerios, especially taking a bite out of it with his front teeth
+ loves to talk! says "baba" "dada" and "mum"
+ rolls all around to get to things he wants
+ will happily sit on his play mat and stay entertained playing with his toys by himself for a while
+ doesn't seem to have a great interest in crawling, but when we put him down on his stomach, he gets on all fours then pauses, not sure what to do next, then rolls over
+ very interested in wheels - his toy cars, train, and wagon get turned around so he can spin the wheels
+ definitely takes more interest in the little things and details like tags, zippers, etc.
+ when we're talking with people in a group, he will look at the person talking as if he's part of the conversation (haha!)
+loves turning the pages himself when we read books
+ he's VERY attached to his mommy! :)

babbling away

Monday, March 2, 2015


this kid just makes me such a happy mama! he's so fun to hang out with during the day. he's definitely very clingy to me right now. my favorite thing that he's doing is talking a lot more! he says "baba" "mum" and "dada" a lot and his voice is just the cutest little thing! i have a million videos on my phone of his babbles.
