La Jolla

We did it! David and I took our first vacation as a couple (no baby) in over a year. It was 4 days, 3 nights in beautiful southern California. I missed Colin SO much but it was pretty nice to relax and enjoy my new freedom. In fact, I only called once/day to check on my babies (but I probably thought about them over 100 times/day).

La Jolla was amazing - the weather was 70 degrees with warm sunshine and a cool ocean breeze. Needless to say, we laid by the pool, walked on the beach, lunched, shopped and took naps WHENEVER we wanted. So refreshing! So fun!

A special thanks to our families for baby sitting, dog sitting, house sitting and traveling to Austin so we could escape for a few days.

Super Baby

David and I took Colin for his 1 year well check today.

Weight = 20 lbs. 7 oz. (10%)
Height = 29.75 in. (25-50%)
Head = 47.9 cm. (75-90%)

Just a few weeks into his first year, Colin:
- Spends 90% of his day walking
- Babbles, sings and growls
- Can throw and kick a ball
- Points at everything with his index finger
- Knows some sign language: more, all done
- Can shake his head "no, no"
- Loves to empty drawers and containers
- Cuddles, hugs and gives wet, sloppy kisses

We LOVE our super baby boy!!!

Thanks for the cape Lindsey!
