Early Christmas Present

Chris and I feel like Christmas came early this year.  You know that one Christmas present that stands out above all of the rest in your childhood?  Well, for us, it's the fact that Colin is mostly feeding himself all meals now!  I have been pretty mum on it the past week because it's one of those things I didn't want to rush to post about since it was so new and he just started doing it, but he's REALLY feeding himself!  The funniest thing about it is that he wants to do it by himself now because when you put the bowl down in front of him, he waves and says "bye" (his way of saying leave me alone).  

We have been waiting a really long time for this!  A lot is happening at once over here!

So happy for you guys, and so proud of Colin! Today we dropped Tommy off later than usual at school since we were coming from up north, and Colin greeted all of us withbthe biggest smile. Then he and Tommy hugged it out...so adorable! When we were leaving, we got the loudest BYE from Colin with a great wave...I wish I got to see him everyday!

Walking, self feeding...what's next?!? I love that he's having such a huge explosion all at once, it must be so amazing and fun to watch on a daily basis!!! I'd say you get the best Christmas gift of the year award for sure!

That is great!!!!! Congrats to all of you!

What kind of spoon is he using? It looks like it's bigger than our tiny little ones, but it's not on a long handle like some of our other ones.
