Cuteness Overload

So at first, I didn't even think I was going to update the blog today because I didn't think I had anything to put up. It's amazing how much can happen in one day after thinking there "wasn't much"!

This first picture is from this morning when Colin and Aunt Kimmy were hanging out before we left for church and before she left to head back up north for her 5K race that she ran today. They just looked so cute sitting there together watching Mickey Mouse!


Later this afternoon, Chris, Colin and I went for a walk around the neighborhood and even though it was chilly, it was beautiful out! Colin has really been enjoying being outside so we have been trying to get out as much as possible. As we were walking back into the garage at the end of the walk, I noticed that Colin was using his pincer grip to pick up a leaf (of all things to use the pincer grip on!) and put it in his mouth several times. My kid won't pick up and eat food, but he will pick up and eat sand and leaves...go figure! After missing his mouth, the leaf ended up on his face....


After the walk, we were watching the end of the Jets game and Colin was really enjoying it. Here is a video of his celebration when the Jets scored to win the game...





Later, after dinner, I had to give Colin a bath and he has been becoming more and more active in the tub lately. One thing that we are really excited about (and can't wait for swim lessons to start) is the fact that Colin will blow bubbles in the water. He has no problem putting his face all of the way in and blowing his bubbles! Here is the video of the bubbles...



However, he also likes to pull to stand in the tub, which is scary enough in itself. I have been grabbing his arm and saying sit and guiding him back down. This time, before I could "guide him back down", he decided to pull himself right out of the tub and flopped onto the floor. Fortunately, I had a hand on his arm to control the "fall" so he didn't even react as he sounded like a wet little turkey hitting the floor. The best part? As I tried to quickly get a towel on him since he was on the cold tile, he started to quickly commando crawl (and commando he was!) out of the bathroom into the kitchen! I honestly couldn't even breathe I was laughing so hard!
Then...the night just keeps going! He just learned this week how to move himself in the car and Miss Kathy said it will be great work for his hamstrings. Here is that video...



After I got him into his PJs, he was playing in the car. He threw the "console" (where the horn and music is) onto the floor and went to get it. There are side rails so he doesn't fall out, but as he was reaching, he tipped the whole car over and fell. Did he react? Nope! You know what he did? He just crawled out of the car and went to get the console...smiling.
He really is turning into such a boy...and a cute one at that!

Oh, COLIN!!! We just can't stop giggling at your bubbles! You are so, so clever and such a fish! We can't wait to see you swim to the head of class when swimming lessons begin!

Such an appropriate title. Colin is cuteness overload everyday. LOVE the bubble video, can't wait to see him with swimming lessons,

Okay, get that boy in some swim lessons because he's going to be a swimmer for sure! It's hard enough to get 3 year olds to blow bubbles when I taught lessons! Bennett likes to pull to stand in the tub too because he gets scared with the girls going crazy but I think it's funny that he can pull up so well when he really wants to in a slippery tub and then have trouble elsewhere!

I love that riding toy with the rails, we have so many in our basement but I like that it keeps them from falling off...or sort of;) Where did you get it?

Colin has definitely mastered the "touch down!" sign!! Too cute! Love all the cute video of Colin!!!

AWWWW!!! Such a great post! And WOW, it was full of such wonderful videos!! The bathtub bubbles make me smile so hard it hurts, and seeing him zip around on his car made my day! :) You are SO right, Kel...He IS such a little boy now! I can't wait to see him again soon!

I love you, Colin! xoxo
