I sure missed my guys! It is nice to be back into my "normal" routines =) Colin and I took advantage of the nice weather and headed outside to play.
Funny story: So I had my camera taking Colin's picture, and he is used to me snapping away while he is doing his thing. When I want him to look at the camera and smile at the same time, I really have to get creative! When I say, "Colin! Say 'cheese'" he will say "cheese." No emotion, and he won't turn to me... So... that doesn't work anymore. I read somewhere to get kids to say "monkey" and that way it looks like they are smiling while they are saying it. But that is old now too. So, I came up with new ways to make him smile at me. This day I was all in his face with the camera and I was saying something like: "Hey Colin! Look at mommy! Say, baboon! Baboon! Can you say it? Say platypus! Colin, say platypus!"....
He stopped paying attention to me and was looking towards the road. When I finally looked up a guy was walking by. Watching. And he was almost past our yard. So... he had heard my craziness as I was snapping away. Embarrassing.
Anywho... I got this picture while he was saying "baboon." So, it is worth a little embarrassment =)
This morning we had a lot of errands, so when we were finished we went to the park to get some energy out! I got Colin one of those Tervis Tumblers for kids, it has a lid. And he loves it! He is still a bit young to have a "real" cup, but when we are outside who cares if he gets a bit wet.
We went on a bike ride this afternoon.... we've been going almost everyday. I am loving riding my bike! Most of the time we go in the morning, like before 8. But today we went around 4. Oh my, it was sooo hot! So, now I am going to prop my feet up and relax!
