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
+ he's very interested in wheels - his toy cars, train, and wagon get turned around so he can spin the wheels
+ he 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!)
+ 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.

 he's king of the goober smile... that kid... :)

my shirt: Clad & Cloth / his romper: target

i will cherish these photos forever! my good friend christal took some photos of colsen and i around our place while she was in town visiting family. (christal also took our maternity photos when we lived in st. louis!) i am so in love with them and she captured colsen's silly smiles perfectly ;)

those blue eyes

Sunday, February 15, 2015

i love this one because it really shows how blue those eyes are! sometimes they look dark navy and sometimes they're as light as the daytime sky.

that grin of his! it melts my mommy heart and makes me want to just squish his chubby cheeks. he loves to sit in front of the porch door and look outside. recently he discovered the curtains and plays in them as well. now that the weather has been feeling more like springtime rather than the winter, i'm anxious for him to be crawling so we can play on the playground nearby! so instead, we go on walks together, which is just as nice.

our first home : update

i'm slightly obsessed with our dark hardwood floors!


we're getting so close to moving in! any excuse to go check out the house nowadays is what we do :) ...until they installed the locks on the doors so now we can't just waltz right in anymore. we're a few weeks away from moving in and that's all i have on my mind - except i'm trying to forget about the whole packing/unpacking ordeal. since we've been married, we've lived in 4 different states, so knowing that this will be the last time (for a while) that we'll have to pack up and move, it's really exciting. we're hoping it's not much longer that we'll be official home owners!
