Christmas 2009!

Christmas was fun this year. Colton didnt quit get it completely but he was still a ton of fun. He loves christmas lights so much, he would wait every night by the gate for us to let him into the living room to turn on all the christmas lights and also the outside ones. Just to see his little face light up was worth it and was priceless.
We had a christmas party with my family the weekend before christmas. My brother from china happened to be in town for business so we got to catch up with him. We did a breakfast and did a kraft and just played with all the kids. that night we did a bond fire and pizza then later we did smores.
On christmas eve we were at andrews parents house. we had lots of goodies and watched old christmas movies and talked. We then went home to wait for santa. Colton woke up bright and early and went straight into the living room and we turned on the christmas tree and he went nuts. He then opened all of his presents and loved them all and wanted them opened right away.
next year will be soo much more fun he will hopefully be into opening his presents. We will also have our new little addition to the family so it will all be complete. I am so thankful for all the family and friends that we have. We are truly blessed to have them all in our lives. I hope everyone had a great christmas.

Happy with his new airplane

Happy 1st birthday to my turkey baby!

My little man turned 1 on thanksgiving this year! He has been such a joy and a blessing to have in our family. He is such a good baby and we love every bit of him. I have been lucky to be able to stay home with him and enjoy seeing him grow and learn new things. He has grown and changed so much since the day he arrived. He is such a daddys boy and is a spitting image of his daddy. He is constantly surpriising us with new things, sounds, and noises that he comes up with and loves to repeat them until he gets you to do it with him.
He is good at keeping us laughing, the things he comes up with are hilarious. He loves chasing his puppies around the house and bugging them to no end. He is into everything, you cant leave anything out or he is right there to pick it up and run away from you cause he knows you are going to take it away.
For his birthday party we had both sides of our family there and my parents were able to be here for it too. it is always so fun when family gets together. I setup a scavenger hunt for all the kids and by the end they were so tired but they got a bag of candy at the end so it was worth it. after that we opened presents and he got lots of elmo toys a truck and some clothes. he wanted me to open each one as we opened them. he loved especial his elmo dolls he walks all over the house holding both of them, if you ask him where his elmo is he looks for it and gets excited when he finds it. He loves to sleep with them and cuddle it is so cute. then we sang happy birthday and he wasnt to sure what was going on but daddy had to help him blow out the candle. I made an elmo cake and it turned out pretty cute but will never do it again to much work. We cut a pice off and stripped colton down to his diaper and let him at it. Oh boy did he love it he was stuffing it in like it was going to run away, it was fun to see him enjoy it. It was a great party cant wait till next year when he can realize whats going on a little better.
Colton we love you and are very excited to see you keep growing into a wonderful little boy. Happy Birthday Mommy and Daddy love you so much.
Here are a few pictures of him through the year they are a little of order.

His stats:
weight: 21lbs- 25th percentile
height: 28.25- 9th percentile
head cir: 18.25- 50th percentile

so he hasnt grown very much but the doctor says he is doing good, so that makes us happy.

Holy Cow!!

on the tractor with cousins

he actually kept that on, he looks so cute

from a distance colton liked the cows this time

Waiting for the hay ride.
My sisters and i took the kiddos to the some dairy farm (couldnt tell ya the name) all you had to bring was 2 cans of food and you got in free. it was fun to see colton just looking at all the animals and point at them. When we first got there we went straight to the hay ride. we waited a little bit but got on really fast well we were the 1st ones in line. They gave a little backround of the farm and talked about all the cows, there were a ton of them. Colton loved it and kept standing up to see them all. there was even a calf that was born that morning and we got to see it. it was fun to hangout with my sisters and colton to be with his cousins.

My ferocious tiger

Halloween this year was Coltons first halloween! he was the cutest tiger on the block. He even let out a couple of roars at my sister, i was dying laughing. we went to my sisters trunk or treat with tons of my family. He was a stinker at first then we let him walk and he was good. He wasnt to sure what to think with everyone in costumes but still had fun. He got some candy and kindly gave to mom and dad. next year will be a lot more fun cause he will hopefully be into a little more. hope everyone had a good halloween.

Baby # 2 is a.........

We found out Oct 28th (my birthday) that yes we are having a little baby girl! it was the perfect birthday present ever i was the happiest person on earth at that moment. We couldnt be more excited! This whole time i wanted a girl so bad but i would have been happy with whatever we were given just as long as they were healthy. Andrew kept saying that colton was going to have a baby brother but i said sister. well sure enough i was right. i went into the ultrasound preparing myself if it was another boy so i could still be excited (bad i know). but when she said its a GIRL i had a tear in my eye i was so excited and andrew was shocked, colton just smiled like he knew the whole time. andrew says now it is time to buy guns, she isnt even here yet and he is already freaking out. well he will be a protective daddy and i know that colton will be a protective big brother. Pictures to come i cant figure out how to put them on here yet.

11 months

love that face!

stuck under the chair trying to get out but never can

he stuffed this ball in his mouth and couldnt get it out

thinks he is super cool with moms glasses

Colton was 11 months Oct 26. He is growing in so many ways. his personality is so cute and developing and is a happy baby. He is a walking fool now! he is all over the place and is really good at it, but he doesnt know how to get back up by himself once he falls but i know that he will get it, i just have to give him time. He is getting into everything and is sometimes hard to keep up with him. he is all over the place and is loving that he can walk. I love that when andrew is unlocking the front door coming home from work colton walks as fast as he can to greet him and gets so excited and waits at the gate for daddy to come get him, it is such a precious sight to see. he loves daddy so much he is constantly saying daddy and goes looking for him. he is such a daddys boy. i cant believe that my little man will be 1 on thanksgiving, yep thats right his birthday is on thanksgiving. we are so proud of colton and all the he has accomplished. we love you baby boy.

10 months a little late!

watching elmo, so cute!

climbing in the dogs bed, he cant get enough.

bangin around with pots

everytime the fridge is open he is there ready
to take everything out of it.
oops backwards Colton was 10 months sept 26th. i know it is a little late.
Wow where has the time gone, my little baby boy is growing so fast. he is a handful though he never stops going he is like the energizer bunny. He keeps our house looking like a bomb blew up toys everywhere. i dont clean up until the end of the night cause it just isnt worth it. he is starting to take steps and let go of things and then realizes that he let go and then falls. Hopefully he will be full on walking by his birthday but andrew says halloween, we will see. he is so fun and i cant get enough of him with his fake laughs and funny noises just keep us laughing.
he loves elmo so much it is so cute when he comes on he gets so excited and will go sit in his elmo chair. he will pat my growing belly and i say baby and he gets so happy, so i think he knows but not fully. he is going to be a great big brother and cant wait to see what he does with the baby attaches them or loves on them, i cant wait to see them together.
I love that he is starting to be a cuddler, it is my favorite and eat it up any time i get the chance. he will just come and lay his head on my lap or arm and it makes me feel needed. we love this little man to death and glad that he is a part of our family. we love you baby boy.

9 months and growing!

Colton is 9 months. We went to the doctor on thursday and he weighs in at 20lbs 12oz 54th percentile, i think he is losing some weight now that he is mobile. 28 inches tall 41st percentile, head 18inches 63rd percentile he does have a big head but i love it. the doctor says he is doing good and right on track. He is so much fun for us and keeps us laughing. He finally got 1 tooth on the bottom coming in and the the one next to it is right behind, so i have had a cranky baby boy lately. He is all over the place since he crawls now like a champ. He can say mama, dada, his first word was dada. he gives you five when you ask him to, and he is starting to wave but it is backwards for now, but he will get it. He loves climbing onto or over anything especially lyla our dog he loves her so much it is so cute to see him with her and she just sits there and takes it but gets back at him by licking him. If we leave anything open he will go right to it and see what he can get into. He is so much fun and i am glad he is growing to be such a healthy baby boy. We love you Colton.

Colton loves:
-bath time
-his paci
-his puppies
-mommy and daddy
-getting into everything
-his bottle
-the trampoline
-being outside

colton hates:

-the vaccum (cries everytime i get it out)
-getting dressed
-the dogs barking (when he isnt paying attention it freaks him out)
-nap time (he can be a stinker sometimes)
-really loud voices he gets so freaked out

Climbing on his toys

Sitting in his chair watching a movie

He just woke up and his hair was crazy but you cant really tell
but he is so cute!

he loves horsies

loving the laundry basket

Getting into our dresser

I love his laugh it is so contagious! hope you enjoy it as much as i do.

24th celebration in saint johns

We went to Saint johns this year for the pioneer celebration. It was so much fun. We got there on wednesday and went straight to my sister aprils house to check out her 2 day old baby, she is so tiny and cute they named her audrey. Andrew was tired after working that night and took a little nap while i hungout with my mom and aprils kids. Thursday we hungout during the day and then that night was the chili dinner and ice cream social, all you can eat ice cream it was the best, but we only got 1 cause the lines were so long. Friday was the kids rodeo, my neices and nephews enter in to do some events. they did the egg toss greased pig and catching the rooster. i didnt get to see them do the greased pig and rooster cause it was at the end i had to go meet with my friend emily who i havent seen in a long time. My aunt and uncles family were at the park where i was with my friend so we went over and joined the party. We talked and had a great time. We ended up playing gogulabonkin (cant spell) it is a lee family game where you have socks rolled up for the ball and you would hit it with your hand and run the bases. Andrew wasnt too sure about it but once he started playing he had fun.
Then that night off to the campfire circle, where everyone parks around this big circle and eats dinner with their families. The homemade ice cream is always the best, and it is always so fun to be with our family, but for some reason we always end up with a pile of dirt in your mouth once the wind started we were out of there. Saturday morning was the parade. Colton had a lot of fun but didnt get any candy but next year he will be old enough to go out there and enjoy it more. All of the floats were good and at the end the fire truck comes and sprays all of those who want to get wet of course all the adults well most of them got way back so they wouldnt get wet. Most of my neices and nephews were soaked. After that we had a lee family lunch at the ramada at the church. There were close to 80 of there so we thought that was the perfect place to do it. My grandma wanted to hold colton and the first thing he did was pull at her necklace, i cant wear them cause he will end up breaking them. He loved her and couldnt stop smiling at her that was a moment to remember. Then we went to round valley to hangout with my bestest friend in the world, she had a tooth infection and was loopy from the drugs (sorry sarah) so she couldnt drive to SJ so we went up there to see her. She played with colton he was having so much fun he loves her, then they took us out to dinner , thanks sarah and sherrod. Then we left sunday morning. It was a jam packed weekend but the weather was perfect and the company was great. Thanks to my mom for letting us stay there, i love going up there to see my parents. I am glad that we had fun as a family. The pictures are out of order. oops
