Colt update

In reviewing this blog, I realized I haven't really posted much about Colt lately. So, here goes. Colt will turn 16 months this week! At his 15 month check up, the Dr. said he is in the 99% for height and 50% for weight (23.8 lbs). Colt is on track to be 6'2"! Lately, he's been picking up new signs, although he still only says a few words (uh oh, no, deer, dog, ma ma - for mom, and Molly our dog, and just started saying thank you "ta tu" and shoes "sss"). He understands alot, which is soo nice. If we say, "you want to get in the shower?", he'll run to it and hop right in. If you say, "let's get in the car.", then he'll run to the front door and start waiving goodbye to Molly. Colt has been a really good eater and loves dairy, fruit, fish (tuna and salmon), carrots, some beans, peas, pickles, macaroni and cheese, and graham crackers among other things. Lately, he's been really into dipping his food into sauces, but then won't eat the actual food, just the sauce :( He continues to have a love for music. The other day at church, he clapped after all the songs. He enjoys pushing toys, chairs, laundry baskets all over the house and has quite an arm on him. He shows no preference for the right or left hand, so he may be ambidextrous. He enjoys reading, playing outside, and has really been into shape sorter toys of late. It's so much fun to watch him grow and learn! Ty and I were just sitting on the couch with Colt tonight, talking about how much fun it is to be parents. What a blessing children are! Anyway, enough with my list of things I need to remember about Colt. On with the pictures....

#1 Ranked Longhorns!!

One thing we really enjoy about living in Austin is attending UT football games. Usually we only get to go to one game a year, but this year, we were generously given tickets to TWO games, one of which was last weeks game vs. Missouri. We went with our fellow Longhorn fan friends, Luke and Sara, and had a blast. Ty's work also sponsored a tailgate party before the game. We tailgated in luxury (an RV) while the fraternity in the spot next to us had to stand up the whole time in the hot sun.

It's a...

BOY!! We had our 20 week ultrasound on Monday and discovered we are having another boy! Ty and I are very excited. We are glad that Colt will have a brother so close in age to grow up with. The baby looked very healthy and was moving all around for us. Our scanner isn't working right now but I'll try to post a sonogram pic when we get it up and running. As for us, we are busy trying to come up with names for this little guy. I'll keep you up to date as we make decisions on that!

Tampa Rays - ALDS champions!

This past weekend, we all flew to Tampa to see friends. We happened to sneak in a Rays playoff game while we were there. Convenient, huh :) We had a great time catching up with everyone! Thanks again to the Pogues and Ernsts for housing us for a few days each - what a blessing to us.
