I know I keep saying it over and over again, but this is SUCH a fun age!  All day everyday is just about play!  I love to watch Colin learning about the world and we have so much fun.

It's been fun and challenging to find new and interesting ways to entertain our ever curious boy.

Shhhh, don't tell anyone we played dorky bridal shower games in the kitchen one day...

The kitchen utensils have been a big hig.  Especially when mom is trying to get dinner ready!  Colin loves to help stir.  One day he took out all of them and put them back one by one.  I didn't know you could do that, Colin!

Colin LOVES being outside and I am very grateful for our incredibly mild (even by California standards) winter.  This was a week ago ro so at the park near our house.  Colin ran around, played in the dirt (and with the bugs) and was generally a little boy.

Don't step on the crack, Colin!!

I'm out of it now and mostly look pregnant, but in these pictures, I notice I'm mostly in that awkward in between phase.  Oh well!  I still love this picture.  It's a reminder that he's watching me all the time and learning based on what I do and say.  What a responsability!

I am so grateful I have the opportunity to rediscover the wonder of everything with Colin and be a part of all of this play!


  1. You have no idea how happy I am that you let, and in fact encourage, Colin to play in the dirt.

  2. Kids were meant to play in the dirt!! I have to admit, it was difficult at first (although that was months ago!). You spend so much time trying to keep this little tiny person clean and happy, it take some getting used to that he's going to start getting covered in mud and grass stains...
