The baby is home

Sorry it has been a while since the last post. As you can imagine we have been quite busy around here. Pauline and the baby are home and doing well. Harrison sleeps all day long and most of the night. I think only mom has seen his eyes when he was awake in the middle of the night. Colby loves his brother and likes to hold him while he watches Mickey Mouse clubhouse. If Harrison starts to cry Colby says that he needs more milk. He is a good brother. Words from Pauline to come later.

Cody's Shadow

Colby is daddy's little shadow. The other day I was printing some pictures and needed some ink for the printer. I remembered that I had a spare printer in the closet. I got the printer out and all the cords hooked up. Colby was with me every step of the way. I went back to the computer to finish my work. Meanwhile Colby finds moms purse on the shelf and proceeds to get moms Drivers license out and takes it to the printer/scanner. He had seen mom do something similar a few days earlier for insurance paperwork. He was insistent on making a copy of moms drivers license, so I helped him put some ink in the spare printer and found some paper for him. He then makes a black and white copy of moms drivers license. He was super excited about it and thought he should do it again. I put the paper back in the printer and had him push the color copy button. He now had two pictures of mom on one sheet of paper. One came out kind of blue and the other was black and white. He called them his blue mom and white mom. He then asked to have them put in his pocket. So we cut them out and put them in his pocket. He carried blue mom and white mom around the rest of the night. Anything that dad is doing Colby is right there helping as much as he can. He is so helpful:)

Our Little Fish

We love to go swimming and because the weather hasn't been warm enough to enjoy the water we found a recreation center with an awesome pool. It has lots of water features that Colby loves to run through, 5 pools, and it has 4 water slides. Colby and mom went swimming today and even though mom is 91/2months pregnant she still managed to take him on the water slides that he loves. I must admit it wasn't easy because I feel 20 months pregnant. We still had lots of fun. I'm really looking forward to having this baby. I don't sleep anymore and I have so many aches and pains I've been feeling miserable. Well we love and miss everyone. We will definitely keep you all posted on the new arrival.

Power Wheels

Colby was given a Power Wheels last year for his 2nd Birthday from Grandma and Grandpa Butterfield. He wasn't really into driving it but he would sit in it watch movies. It's been sitting in his closet since and he never really paid that much attention to it. A few days ago mom was in the kitchen and heard something very loud in Colby's room. Mom ran in there and Cobly had driven his Power Wheels halfway out of the closet. He was so persistent in driving it that mom pushed all the furniture back and let him drive in the family room for a minute. He's was really good at not hitting into anything but the space is very limited living in a apartment. The next day daddy carried the truck down stairs and we took him and his truck to the park. He was a little pro driving up and down the hills, through the dirt and rocks, and where ever he could fit. He wants to drive his truck everyday. Colby loves Jeeps, 4-wheelers, or any thing that he can ride on. It's amazing how much he's like his dad.
