3 months and counting... little Colton is now 3 months old!! I can't believe how fast time goes by! Every day he is learning to do more and more. And every day he is gaining and gaining!! I look at clothes in his closet thinking they won't fit, and put them on and they are almost too small! He is fitting into pretty much all of his 6-9 month old outfits. I don't think he looks THAT chunky to me, he is just a big boy!
He has had lots of great babysitters the past month while I have to go to school at night:( I got home from class on Monday night and looked at my camera, and there were a bunch of pictures of him and my good friend Mikkel..hehe! Look how cute they are!
I love putting him on his belly because he has been lifting his head soo good, and he pulls the funniest faces! He also ROLLED oveR!! It was really exciting moment for us all..haha! After he did it once, I thought it was a fluke, but every time I put him on his stomach now, he rolls over. It's his big head that just pulls him right down!!
So..Matt's parents have this toy for babies who are probably a little older than Colton(once they can hold their heads up) But--we decided to try it out and stuff blankets behind him. He loved being in there and bounced his legs up and down, but wasn't too interested in the toys-he just wanted to stare at his mom and dad!
More tummy time..his head is getting a little tired.

And we had to get one with dad too...right before church with his adorable shoes!

So..I think that my mom is in love with Colton as well. She came and stayed with us for a week cause we both had soo much school stuff going on, and Colton and her both loved it! He got attnetion all day, and she got to play with him all day! She has been soo much help to us, and we couldn't do it without her!
Colton and his Aunt Sarah..she is going to be a great mom!!
Moving onto basketball, which has pretty much been EVERYTHING we have done the past month. These are 2 of Matt's coaches wives and their babies that were all born during basketball season! One was born 2 days after, and the other a month after. kind of fun
Senior Night. Well, I always thought I would be excited for the end of basketball season, but it's a little bit different this year. I know how hard Matt has worked and it's kind of hard realizing it is going to be over. However, I think our lives are in a position where it won't be quite as hard. It was, however, an awesome night and very emotional.
I'm so proud of Matt and am going to miss watching him! He is the hardest worker I know and no matter what it is in life, he gives it his all!

So, my family and Matt's family also got to take a trip to MOntana State and Univeristy of Montana. It ended up being a really fun trip! This is us after they beat Montana State!
So one of my greatest friends, Heather, who I played ball with at SLCC lives in Bozeman. Her husband is the athletic trainer for Montana State's mens basketball team. They have kind of gotten to be fans of MSU, which is fine, because we beat them...hehe! Anyway, she has a little boy who is over a year and soo soo cute! So, it was way fun to see them and spend a little bit of time with them:)

Anyway, as stressful as this past month has been, going to school, teaching and being a mom with Matt gone most of the time, I wouldn't trade it for anything. Being a mom has been the greatest thing and Colton is such a good baby and a Joy in our lives!!

Congrats to you both on a great season. I think Eric mentioned having you in some classes. He went through that masters program and had a great time. Your little one is growing fast-he's a doll! I will let you know on the scrapbooking programs when I get into that. I just got a new silhouette and adobe elements that I need to figure out first, but thanks for offering :0).

Aaron, Sara, and Alice said...

How fun! I totally agree... we should put them in nursery together and Colton can protect Alice if someone tries to steal her toys like Tyson did for Heather! Being a mom is great... very exhausting but great. I'm trying to finish up a couple of classes and it's VERY slow going but definitely worth it! You're a trooper for teaching on top of it! You have a great looking family! It looks like you're having so much fun! Take care :)

Anna said...

Colton is so cute! He is so handsome. Sounds like you are having fun, but being quite busy. That's great you got to see Heather. You have such a cute family!
