Two and a half...

(I have started keeping these all together on a page at the top of this blog. It makes it easier for me to click back and see what Colin was up to. These are mainly so I don't forget any of these precious moments...)

These pictures were taken a couple weeks ago at the waterfall near our OLD house.  (Yes we are officially moved into our new house!  Woohoo!) 
My baby boy is 2.5 years old (as of the 23rd)!! 
- At night when we put him to bed he always says "Merry Christmas!" and you must say it back!  Then he will say "that's all"... probably because I say that when he keeps repeating "Merry Christmas" =)

- Colin has only ever had water and milk... but when he was sick this past week I gave him a bit of ginger ale... he hated it (I think it was the bubbles).  Then I gave him some Pedialyte and Gatorade, he kept saying "I don't like this" but he drank it =)

- When he calls Suzi he gets a REALLY high pitched voice, "Suuuzziiiii".  It's so funny!  His voice almost cracks it's so high!

- Colin came running down the hallway to Garet saying, "Daddy I found a rubber!"
It was a rubberband.  He was so proud.

- I was down the road and Colin was in his little car and he kept saying, "Mommy I'm flashing you!"
He was talking about the lights on the car.

- Colin asks questions alllllll the time.  Mostly to things he knows. 
The other day he said, "What's this?"  (It was a cow, which he knew), so I said, "hmmmm, is it a dog?"  Colin replied, "No!  Silly goose!"

- He sleeps with 4 stuffed animals (Bear, Froggy, Giraffe, and Mator) and his blanket that Grandma Kay made for him when he was born.  He must have all of these =)

fruit, any kind of fruit
being outside
cars/trains/trucks/anything with wheels!  especially firetrucks!
being out and about - anytime we go to the store he is so good!
animals and fish... he loves to go to pet stores and look at the animals, he really likes the fish!
cooking (he likes to grab a bowl, water, and a spoon and "cook", or he helps me bake)
reading and being read to
water - any kind of water: bath, swimming, puddles, sink, really any water!
music!  singing and dancing!

most meat, yes I have a picky eater!
storms (I found this out when we had a major thunderstorm this past week and Colin freaked out at bedtime.  It was so sad to see him so scared.)
snakes and bugs - he is really scared of snakes (even fake ones) and just doesn't like bugs

We are so so so blessed by our little man!  I don't think that I can put into words what this sweet child means to me!  He has a big heart and is a sensitive little guy.  He is so much fun!  Garet and I really love hanging out with him!
