A day in the life of Colin...
Hey guys! This is Colin. I thought I would share a day with you! Mom wants to remember every single thing about my childhood, so I am going to help her out by documenting this.
I slept so good last night! In fact, I felt so good that I woke up extra early so I could hang out with mom! [It was 5:00 in the morning] I am not sure exactly what I was doing, but I kept saying "uh oh! uh oh! uh oh!" And when I say that, Mom comes in my room pretty fast. It's funny =)
Mom got me up, changed my diaper, and we went into the kitchen. "Milk? Peas?" I always ask for it as soon as we are up. Mom is good about making it for me too. Then she always says, "Colin, come cuddle with me!" And I do, of course!
I don't last very long on the couch with mom. I mean, I'm up - I want to play! Normally I find Suzi and lay on her until Mom tells me "that's enough". Then Mom makes me breakfast. I like to watch her make her and Daddy's coffee. I'm not sure why Mom didn't take a picture at breakfast. She must have been busy.
After breakfast I really play! I pull out a cube and dump it on the floor. This morning Mom had laundry that we folded too.
Daddy always gives Suzi pills in the morning, and I always get to give her a treat once she takes her pills!
Mom told me that we needed to wash the sheets on her and Daddy's bed... so we headed to their bedroom. I am such a big help. I pulled off all the sheets, then I threw them all back on the bed. Then I pulled them off, and I was about to put them back on the bed when Mom told me to just put them in this basket.
When we came back upstairs Mom said she had to brush her teeth and get ready for the day. While she was doing that, I rearranged her shoes.
Dad left for work, and Mom started looking all over the place for a "reciept"... she finally just said, "oh well, hope they take it back without one." Sometimes she talks to me and I don't really understand, so most of the time I just say "uh huh" and that seems to work.
Mom and I went to Lowes and she made returns. And when I got in the cart I got a snack! I love eating while we are shopping - it seems that anytime I am with Mom in a cart I get a snack. Hmmm, wonder if she does that on purpose.
As soon as I get in my carseat in the car, or in a cart at the store, it is soo much fun to see how fast I can kick off my shoes! I love it! Everytime I do, Mom about steps on them and I laugh so hard! Then she makes a face, and throws them in her purse. She is sooo funny!
I made friends with a guy on a big truck while we were there! [he was lifting wood in the lumber section] And I gave another guy a high five, then we got a key made! I love holding Mom's keys, so this was really neat. That guy didn't pay me any attention, but when we checked out... they guy there just kept talking to me. When this happens I like to just give people a blank stare. Mom tries to get me to say "hey" or something, but I like to just stare quietly. Sometimes I will say "bye" but today I didn't feel like it.
Then we went to the library! I love the library! They have cool computers that Mom lets me play on!
On the way home, Mom and I sang really loud to the radio. We love to sing in the car!
At home, I quickly found my bike and made a few laps around the house. I think it is so funny to run into Suzi - she jumps so big and then runs away! I laugh so hard! Mom doesn't seem to think it is funny and always tells me to "be easy with Suzi!" but I usually forget.
Daddy made a quick stop by our house before lunch! When I see his car I always yell "Daddy Home!" And when he walked in I ran to give him a big hug! He wasn't able to stay long, he said he had to get back to work. When he left, Mom and I waved at the window - and he beeped his horn! He is so funny.
Mom made us lunch, and I got some applesauce! It was so good!
Then we went into my room, changed my diaper, and snuggled up for a couple books. I always read about Jesus before nap, then I get to pick one or two more. Then Mom sings to me. I was so tired by the time she started singing, in the middle of the song, I said, "night night".
So she put me down, and I went right to sleep.
I wonder what Mom does while I sleep.... I know that my toys are usually put away when I wake up, so I bet she plays with them...
When I got up [2 hours later] I had a snack.
Dinner was leftovers. They were really good - usually when Dad is home late we have leftovers.
After dinner we read the books we had gotten at the library.
After I brushed my teeth I heard Daddy get home! I was SO excited! I ran full speed into his arms and gave him the biggest kiss! I love when he gets home!
Bath was really fast... my boo boo hurt when it got in the water. Mom had to be really fast! When we got to my room, Mom got my pajamas on and we talked about our fun day. Then we said my prayers and she left me in my crib. I didn't make a peep.
Night Night everyone!
[This ended up way longer than I thought it would =) If you are still reading... I really just wanted to document a "normal" day. I think I am just getting sad that my baby is turning 2! Wow.]
