Whenever Colt sits in his swing, he looks over to this fabric swatch and starts smiling at this little blue elephant (see pic below). Then he'll start squealing and "talking" to it! It is too cute. Guess he has some new friends! He has started to "talk" much more recently, especially if you sing to him. He'll just talk for minutes on end - it cracks me and Ty up!
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!
