Here are a few pictures from Easter weekend. It was Colby's first time wearing a dress to church! She was a cutie-pa-tootie, but Nick said she couldn't wear a dress again until she was kept riding up while he was holding her and it was a pain! Thank you Aunt Kim and Aunt Kendall for the adorable dress and matching sweater!!! It was a hit!

Last week was Colby's 3-month birthday! It seems like we just had her yesterday but that she's been with us for 30 years! I guess the old cliche' that you don't remember what life was like before you had kids is true! She's a good baby though. She's been sleeping through the night for the past month now, and she sleeps between 10-11 hours a night at a time. She's ready for bed around 7:30. I try and give her a bottle, but usually she just ate between 5:30-6:00 when we get home from work. So, if she'll eat, then I put her down for the night. Otherwise, if she won't eat, I get her up around 9:30 to feed her. She eats without waking up, and that ensures that she won't wake up around 3:00 am from hunger.

She is happiest if she's standing on your lap. Her newest thing is that she likes sitting up straight...not leaning against your stomach. Whether she's in her car seat or on your lap, she sits there working her ab muscles trying to sit up straight. It's looks like she's doing little baby crunches!

Thanks for checking in! Kelly

That dress is way to cute on her! Kendall and Kim did a good job picking it out! Tell Nick that he can put up with a dress one day a week, she is too cute in them not to have her wear them!

Oh my goodness!! She has grown up so much!!! What a sweetie in her pretty little Easter dress! She is a cutie-pa-tootie!!! I really can't believe how much she's changed. She doesn't look newborn anymore! I cannot wait to see her!!!!! It doesn't look like she's lost any of her hair at all! Has she?

That dress is absolutely adorable - almost as adorable as little miss Colby herself! And I love the picture of the 3 of you together :)

I think you'd best look for snapshots of you when you were young. I thing Colby looks like her daddy but I bet you have a pic somewhere where she looks like you too.
