Breakfast with Santa

The Gibbons were in town, so we joined them at the Hancock Observatory and had breakfast with Santa. It was a huge succeess, even though Colby tried to yank his beard off. Santa was very kind to this good little boy.

Bad Mommy Needs to Improve Her Blogging Skills

A Note from Colby:
I am sorry my mommy hasn't updated this blog in awhile. I have not seen that pesky camera as much lately, but we have been up to a lot of fun things!

I turned 4 months yesterday! I am getting so OLD! I now get some rice cereal everyday. I like to spit it out onto my bib and then eat it off of the bib. It tastes MUCH better that way.


I also got some photos taken of me by a smelly photographer. He did make me laugh a lot though! See some of the shots below or the entire album!

Happy Santa



Kisses from Mom and Dad

MAD Santa (a.k.a. end of the photoshoot)



Let's see, what else...well, my first Thanksgiving was fun. I was with my Mimi and Papa and their house was all nice with a lot of lights and holiday decorations. I liked that a lot.

I also got to visit my long-time friend, Olivia, in Milwaukee for her baptism. Our parents try to pose us in these silly shots. Maybe one day we will get a good one.



I will remind Mommy to take more photos over Christmas and update this blog a bit more.

Love you all!

Colby Takes Manhattan

Joe has been in New York a lot for work, so Colby and I decided to hop on a plane and visit the Big Apple. Colby was quite a hit on the plane and took Manhattan by storm. We got to visit with my cousin and her hubby, as well as reconnect with a Boston buddy! Here are some highlights, as well as a link to the entire album.

Trying for the perfect shot...

So Cute It's Scary

Colby's First Halloween consisted of two wardrobe changes: a bear in the AM and a penguin in the PM. He had a lot of fun!

Cousins Visit

The Hevi's came to town and we had a fabulous time. We went for Chicago-style pizza at Pizzaria Due, Navy Pier (did you know three ice creams cost $17+!), and of course, American Girl. It was a blast!

Gavin, Cyndi, and Emily


Emily makes the height requirement


Taking a "dirt" nap, hah!


Colby learns from the best (aka Cousin Emily) how to strike a pose!


Hats off to you!


Will we have fun at Navy Pier? YES!

Colby's Baptism

Colby was baptized on Sunday, October 18, 2009. Great Grandfather "Bup" performed the ritual. It was amazingly special.

It's been way too long since the last post (bad Mommy!). We've had many fun adventures over the last two months. Colby had his two month appointment this past Wednesday, and had some pretty impressive stats: 15 lbs, 6 oz and a whopping 25 inches long! Here are some highlights of our fun!
