Please note the frown...she's such a serious baby. There's evidently SO much on this little girl's mind!! Or, she was irritated that I was disturbing her sleep with the noise of the dishes.

As for stats, Colby is now 22 1/4" long and weighs 10 lbs and 11 oz! Grandma Cooper asked if she was eating cream for meals! In any case, she's doing well in the growth department!
Last week I ordered Colby several new playthings for her crib...her two favorites are her little fish aquarium and her rooster mobile. I've included a few pictures of her 'playing' with them below.
Thanks for checking in! Kelly
Hello, Nemos! You are so fun...and I love the pretty lights.
Well, hello, up there! You are so fun to watch too! You go round and round and round just like that ceiling fan in the living room I really like.
What's a girl to do? I'm not sure which of you I like better!!

Colby had her first real bath last week. I'm only posting the calm pictures. Most of the pictures show her in an extremely irritated state. While she still doesn't enjoy the bath, she is more calm as I've learned to constantly pour water on her stomach to keep her warm.
Aunt Dana with Colby.
On Saturday, my good friend Lisa came to visit and catch up. She is due with their first baby in another six weeks. Colby slept on Lisa's lap the entire two hours she was here!

Cydil was one of the first people that learned Nick and I were expecting. I will never forget the weekend I told her. I had driven down to KY early that Saturday morning. So, I got up at 4:30 in order to get ready and begin the six-hour drive to Cydil's house. We drove to the wedding and did our work. The wedding was at the bride's parents' house, which was beautiful. I couldn't believe all of the white tents and flowers. There was even a separate tent for serving lemonade and water to the guests prior to the wedding beginning since it was a REALLY hot July day. At the reception, the bride asked if we could stay later then Cydil had contracted for. We ended up leaving the wedding around 1 am to being the 1 1/2 hour drive back to Cydil's house. So, in effect, I had been awake for just a little short of 24 hours. I was so thankful to Cydil when she saw me as a melted puddle in the middle of the reception and told me to go rest for a bit in the car. I was so thankful for those 20 minutes of rest in my first trimester!!
The other day Cydil posted this announcement featuring Colby on her photography blog for all of her brides to read about. Click here to read it!
Right now, Colby is in her crib fighting a nap (seriously, when you're three weeks old, what are you wanting to stay up for??? You can't even see much beyond two feet!!). I have a TON of pictures to post of her from over the last week, but because I haven't transferred them from my camera yet, and because blogs are WAY more fun when there's pictures, here are a few pictures from the above referenced wedding.

This weekend Colby had many more visitors who made the trip to Shelby County to see her! On Saturday, Grandpa and Grandma Rankin stopped by on their way to St. Louis for a farm toy show. Grandpa Rankin has turned his hobby of making custom toy hay wagons into a business, and they were heading to the toy show to support a vendor who sells them.
Colby showed her enthusiasm for the company by indulging in her favorite 'frog' pose with Grandpa...
...and with Grandma.
On Sunday, Karen, Chris, and the girls came to visit! Anna took her turn holding Colby. All of the girls were so surprised about how small Colby was. To me, she's grown a ton in her 2 1/2 weeks!
Emma, I didn't forget your picture like that Aunt Kori did!!! :)
Ella enjoyed holding "Amelia"...after she got it straight that this was Colby, not Amelia, she was pretty cute with her pronunciation: 'Coby'.
I don't know, Karen...Chris looks pretty cozy holding a baby...maybe there's hope for a 4th yet!!!
