This big guy turned one over a month ago & I have been a bad mommy & not posted about it yet..........life is crazy with 2 little head strong guys running around this house & even though I wouldn't change any of it for the world some days I could use about another 3 hours in the day to just sit & collect my thoughts!!
Colton is a pure joy, he has the best laugh & smile & he shows them all the time. He is a carefree little guy 98% of the time but the other 2% is complete breakdowns because I am late with his food..........HE LOVES FOOD & I best not be late getting it made or else. He eats anything & everything; he is leaning away veggies at the moment but loves fruits & anything that has pasta in it is heavenly to him.
He has so much energy & thinks that he is a big as Brayden & can keep up with him; he even thinks that he can run like his big bro but he has the bumps on his head that proves he is still a bit wobbly in the running department. He is in 18/24 month clothing & wearing a size 4 shoe..............I have a crazy suspicion that he is going to be a BIG BOY.
Colton is a mommy's boy most of the time but it seems that when daddy walks through the door I become chopped liver. Lance has such a crazy work schedule & with Colton going to bed at 8pm he doesn't see Lance for more that 30 minutes a day so he makes sure that when he sees him he gets all the loving he can. Our poor little guy has actually been under the weather for about a month with an ear infection that he just couldn't shake but he is better now & getting back to his old cheerful self!!
He is talking & babbling so much; he has still not said momma but says daddy, no-no, yes, point to shoe & tries to say it & says juice.......kind of. He really just bangs on the fridge saying something that sounds close to juice until I get it for him!! He is in the 95% percentile in height & weight; he weighs 24 pounds & it 31 inches tall. He really is such a big little guy.............Lance is hoping he'll be a linebacker. He loves, loves, loves to be outside & prefers to be there more than inside or anywhere else. If he sees me let the pups out he'll start running for the door wanting to go too & if he doesn't get to go lays on the floor throwing a fit. He is pretty good at the fit throwing at this point. He is testing he boundary's & limits a good bit but will hopefully learn mommy is the boss & not him.................RIGHT!!!!
The boy doesn't sit still & loves to copy everything that B does (so we are in trouble). He loves Brayden so much & follows him around where ever he goes. B calls him baby & loves him too but of course doesn't want him to touch his stuff!! Colton lights up the room & our hearts each & everyday & he is just a true & pure blessing to our family. He is growing up & changing so fast & it makes me sad as much as it makes to smile & happy.
Here is Colton a few days after he was born laying on the same bear.............tears at the difference & at the fact that he is no longer considered a baby but a toddler!
