Colby - More new videos

Colby - new video

I'm uploading several new videos of Colby...but thought I would go ahead and post this one specially for Carolyn! Yesterday we had a conversation about Colby's penchant for chewing on books and basically anything made from paper products. Last night she got into the wet wipes and this is the result. Ewwww!

I wish I may I wish I might

Last night I was going through images from a family portrait session in the snow and came across this image of the youngest...not entirely on board with the whole 'let's get family pictures in the snow" concept. I had to chuckle. I will call this image "Oh please, oh please, oh please let that lady be gone when I open my eyes!"

Sarah, I knew you'd want a bit of a sneak peek...the one that made me laugh out loud!!! KM

For the first time, this past week Colby got sick. She woke up last Sunday morning coughing and hacking. It got worse day by day with a runny nose and congested chest. After two trips to Walgreens, a purchase of a Vick's humidifier, and countless medicines deemed 'safe' for kids, I finally took her to the doctors on Thursday, where we also found out she had an ear infection. Poor girl. She's still got a bit of the runny nose, but her mood is back to happy-to-lucky for the most part. Here are a few pics from the week.

I'm just going to lay here with my boppy pillow and watch VeggieTales while I don't feel well.

Had to include this picture so that I could show the cute PJ's Aunt Kori got Colby! It's two pieces with the button-up shirt and little collar on it. So darn cute.

Once again, with my boppy pillow, a blanket, and my Veggie Tales.

She was starting to feel a little bit better at this point. I had my camera and her both on my lap and was trying to take pictures of her, but she's discovered that the pictures play on the back of the camera now; so, she's always trying to get a hold of the camera to see the pictures.

Grasping for the camera while I'm trying to take a picure...hence the out-of-focus pic.

Me grabbing her grabby little arm right when I hit the shutter button.

Her look of frustration that I won't let her have the camera.

And the tears now begin.

During happier times: Colby found this pair of underpants in a box of hand-me-downs, and I kept putting it on her head, which she thought was pretty funny.
Thanks for checking in!

Colby's First Primary

Yesterday we took Colby for her first voting experience: the Illinois primaries. This picture is of her giving a death stare to someone she didn't think was going to vote as they should. Can you just feel the political disdain? :)
