So, I know it's been a while since I've posted, so here's a recap of what we've been up to:
Colt was pretty sick for about a week, but fortunately that has passed. He was a trooper through it all and even participated well with the breathing treatments the doctor prescribed him!
It is spring training in Florida so baseball fever has hit the Dishman household. Ty went to several games last week and we are going to see the Phillies vs. Red Sox tomorrow for my birthday! Here's a cute pic of Ty and Colt at Colt's first spring training game. He even got his first foul ball thrown to him.

Colt has also welcomed the presence of his first 2 teeth! They are right on the bottom center. You can kinda see his teeth in the next pic:

Since he's been teething, he is putting everything in his mouth. Including sucking on door hinges and the hardware of the entertainment center...

Since Colt has become a speedster at crawling, he makes a bee-line for Molly's water bowl and enjoys playing in it. Molly doesn't seem to mind as Colt is the one who pays the most attention to her. Since Colt has started crawling, he is starting to thin out. When I took him to the doctor, he weighed 20lbs 3oz at 8 months.

Lastly, Colt received his first haircut today. I did it myself - yikes! If I do say so myself, it turned out pretty well for giving my first haircut ever. Especially to a squirmy baby! This is a before picture. I just trimmed the hair over his ears since he was looking really shaggy.

That's all for this week!

I gave Faith her first haircut too. I got tired of always thinking "mullet" since the back grow much faster than the top. So I just chopped the back and it came out pretty good too. I am sure when I take her to get her next one at a real place they will ask who cut her hair last. Oh well. Colt is getting so big. Very cute pics of him!!

Colt does have very pinchable and kissable cheeks! Would you be jealous to know that we take Jackson to Astros games and plan on taking him to even more this year? : )
