Rabid Baby?

Here's some advice--don't stick your finger into a hungry one-year-old's mouth. Got it? If you don't heed my advice, this could happen to you! Ouch!
Sometimes, it's really hard to find all the food that ends up thrown on the floor during meals at our house. Sometimes pieces of chicken stay on the floor all night. Sometimes Colter picks up pieces of old chicken off the floor and tries to eat them. Then, when his foolish mommy tries to retrieve said chicken, she gets her finger trapped in the vice of death! A.K.A. Colter's teeth. Those things are sharp!
He doesn't look like a ferocious, mommy-eating boy, does he?

Busy September Days

It's probably obvious that we've been pretty busy at my house from my lack of blogging. Just to demonstrate what some of our days have been like here lately, here's a glimpse into our Sunday.

Sundays always begin with us rushing around trying to make it to church on time (we usually are a few minutes late). I should have brought my camera with us on this particular Sunday, because Colter got promoted to a new Sunday school class! He's officially no longer a creeper; he's now a toddler. He has a new Sunday school room and a new teacher to get used to. He's such a momma's boy, he'll probably get used to the room about the time he switches to the next one.

After church, we got to eat lunch with our friends Joey, Rachel, and Riley! Fun times! We haven't seen them in so long! It was awesome to get together for a little while, and time went much to quickly.

I should have taken a picture with faces.
Colter loved Riley's trampoline! Look at the weird caterpillars on their tree! Eww!After lunch, then it was birthday party time! Colter's cousins had a combine birthday party.
Justin turned two...
and Tristan turned five.Our cousin, Brennan, finally figured out the only way to get Colter to like him is to go outside! Brennan's been trying to get Colter to go to him since Colter was born. He finally had some success!Colter had fun trying to take over Justin's new toys!
After a busy day of church, lunch dates, and birthday parties, we finally made it home to put our cranky, nap-skipping boy to bed.

OH, Baby! Favorite Foto Friday

Happy Favorite Foto Friday! Today's theme is, "Oh, Baby!" Oh, baby, how I love my baby!

First, here's some baby picture of me. I don't have any pictures of me when I was really young; I should have hit Mom up for some. Oh well. In the first faded picture from 1981, I'm around the same age Colter is now. I'm not sure where my mom's eyes are...
This is my two-year-old picture. I think I look a little mischievous. :)This is one of Colter's first pictures! He had just been plopped on my chest. In fact, my face is still red from all that pushing I just did, and yes, my legs are still spread. The doctor still had quite a bit of stichin' up to do. Ow. Colter's six-days-old in this one. What a sweetie! I need to get me another one of those... Man, I love this little guy.
