The past few months

So the past few months have been so fun, but crazy for us! Collin is getting so big and is determined to be a big boy and do everything himself. he keeps me on my toes and keeps me running, but we enjoy the moments. Brady recently got a job at Glenn's Electric and loves it! he is such a happy person and i love that! He has a great boss and co-workers. What a blessing! I work exclusively at Logan Regional ER and love it! i work grave shift so i get to be home with collin during the day! we dont have to pay for a baby-sitter and i get to watch him learn and grow everyday. He is 19 months now which is just crazy to me. here are a few of the things we've done in the last few months..... enjoy

Birthday Tradition

collin's birthday fell on a wednesday and his b-day party wasn't until sunday, but grandma hawkes brought over pizza and we had a mini party, and then brady, i, collin and daisy had a camp out in our front room! we talked about how fun it would be, because me and brady haven't let collin sleep with us. sometimes i just wish he had slept in my bed, but so glad at the same time that he is a big boy, sleeps really good in his crib and likes it. so we started a tradition that on his birthday every year we would camp out in the living room....

watching a movie as a family... daisy just had to join in.. haha

little guy all tuckered out! 


collin's officially a big boy now! grandma got him a big boy car seat!!
