Happy Half Birthday!

This post (like many others) is dedicated to my favorite little man, who turns 6 months old today!

Colin is always working on new tricks, the latest of which include sitting up by himself, escaping his bumbo seat, and the army crawl.
When he wants to get out of his bumbo seat he starts with this sideways stretch, then he reaches down and plops right out. Fortunately, this has only happened once while he was unattended...
One of his first attempts at the army crawl. He only gets better every day.

He loves to squawk, squeal, blow raspberries, and make noise any other way he can. He also loves chewing on anything he can get ahold of, although he prefers electronics and spoons.

Standing is always better than sitting in Colin's opinion.

It took a few weeks, but Colin now loves eating food. He has tried rice cereal, oatmeal, peas, pears, carrots, bananas, and apples. He likes them all, but it took him a few days before he discovered his love for pears. Strange kid.
Look at those two cute teeth!

This boy loves his dad! Matt can get him to laugh harder than I've ever heard, and just one look from dad will usually get a giggle out of him. That being said, he is entering the phase of always wanting me. Especially at night. When it's about his bedtime he'll start crying and won't stop until I pick him up. Then he looks over at Matt and gets a big smile on his face, like he's trying to say, "See? I got exactly what I wanted."

This is a video of a little game they like to play called "Colin on the cob."

I'm pretty sure he gets cuter every single day. I still look at him and say, "Ah! He's the cutest baby ever!" I don't think I'll ever stop doing that, in fact :) He even looks cute in this snowsuit...

We love Colin to pieces, and I'm so glad that 6 months ago today he joined our family!

He's so gifted in so many ways! :) Enjoy every minute because before you know it, you'll say, "Where did my baby go?" And then of course, you'll have to have another one... ;)

he wasn't even doing that army crawl a week ago when I was there!

Ahhh So cute! Wow, I can't believe 6 months have passed already! I feel like we just left Utah yesterday but we've been gone almost a year! Crazy how time flies!

Happy half-birthday, Colin! 6-9 months is my favorite age, so enjoy every minute of it because it will go by too fast.

I love that first picture! So funny! Hard to believe he has just as many teeth as Millie. What is that girl doing?
