Night waking

Here's a link where the strip is easier to read...

I found this comic strip... I think it portrays how I am feeling about the upcoming weaning process. I'm planning to nurse Colt for his first year, but then Ty and I would like to take a vacation (just the 2 of us) and I figure I'll need to have Colt weaned by then. This is also one of the reasons why I still get up in the middle of the night to feed Colt, even though he physically doesn't really need to eat in the middle of the night anymore. It is just such a special time... one of my favorite's with him actually. My plan is to cut out his middle of the night feeding in 2 weeks.... sob!

Sink or Swim

2 weeks ago we began swim lessons at the YMCA. Colt really hated it the first week, but this past week he has started to loosen up a bit. We've been going swimming almost daily so he can get used to the water. On Saturday we went as a family, so here are some pics from the day.

On Thursday, my friend Kristel invited Colt and I to a Rays baseball game. Her husband works for the team and got us AWESOME tickets. We were SO close to the players, right behind the plate. Check out some pics I took, and I didn't even have to use the zoom :)

We LOVE our neighborhood! We have awesome neighbors and we love hanging out with them. Over spring break they had a pancake breakfast for all the kids in one family's driveway and everyone went to the beach another day. My next door neighbor always brings out tons of toys in her yard and we all sit around talking as our kids play together. I could go on about our neighborhood, but instead I'll post some pics of Colt playing in the yard. He loves tunnels and eating leaves - yum! Also, Colt has finally started to say "DaDa" and "MaMa" and loves to sing. We just eat it up! He's also getting really independent and we think he is really close to standing alone. Yikes! That means walking is right around the corner. Watch out world!
