Yes, if you look closely at the above picture, there IS another swing in the background. This is because we bought the Fischer Price Papesan swing and it BROKE! It is battery operated, and it will eat 4 D batteries in one swing session! So, we bought Colt a different swing (the one with the elephant), which is working MUCH better! It operates with electricity through the wall socket, which saves us money on batteries :)
This week, we left Colt with a babysitter for the 1st time!! We found a girl at church who seems responsible and she loves Colt. She's a high school senior, so we ended up taking Colt to her house (which worked out good, cause her parents were there to lend a hand if needed!). Ty and I went to a Bible study. The whole time I kept waiting for my phone to ring and was hoping it had good reception in the house! When we picked him up, he seemed happy and was clean and fed. Can't ask for much more!
Below is Colt in some of the outfits Grandma J gave to him. Thank you!
Sorry this is sort of a boring post, just not a lot going on with us right now!

Colt is starting to laugh! It's adorable. He kinda goes, "He. He."Colt and Molly during "tummy time"

Colt took his first airplane ride. I was nervous because Ty couldn't come with us, but Colt did great! He slept all the way up, and drank his bottle on the way down! (As you can see, the flight was pretty empty, so even if he did fuss, it wouldn't have disrupted too many people!)
In Austin, Colt met his mom and dad's friends and their new kids. Adalaide was sleeping, but we got pictures of Colt and Kate (isn't she a cutie?)
Next Colt went to Marble Falls and met lots of other friends: (Don't they all look SO happy to be there :)
Colt laid out at the lake in Marble Falls:
Then we drove to Fort Worth where Colt got to meet his GREAT Grandad and Grandma:
It was a fun vacation and it was great to see lots of wonderful friends and family along the way. We miss you guys, but you're always welcome to visit us in sunny Florida!
Somewhere during all of our travels, Colt picked up a cold and then had a slight ear infection. He was a bit fussy when we got home, but after sleeping with him in the recliner for 2 nights and a bit of baby Tylenol, he was back to his old curious, chipper self again. Colt getting sick was one of my biggest parenting fears, so now that we've been there and done that, I feel much more confident. Yes, it was hard to hear him fuss and not be able to sooth him quickly, but he really was a trooper and we got through it.
Also, Colt had his 2 month checkup: he weighs 13 lbs 80z, height 24.25 inches. We have a big boy on our hands!
