Something we were able to accomplish were some 1 year photos. Since it was cold, my dear friend, Katie, who has taken all of our family pictures the last couple of years, came to our house. The light was poor and she was having issues with her external flash, but she was still able to capture some great shots of our guy and his personality.
Colty Joe turned 1 a couple of months ago. I think it’s a bit hard for me to believe because he is still pretty content to crawl rather than walk. Last week he had a day of determination and worked for quite a while on standing up on his own, taking a few steps, falling and doing it all over again. He doesn’t want to take the easy road of learning to walk by letting go of furniture or our hands. Oh well, I’m not in a hurry, so he doesn’t need to be either. Cole has decided that going up and down stairs is important and at the homes of a couple of different friends, he conquered both crawling up stairs and carefully sliding down stairs by himself. I think I’ll be hearing lots of “Colty do it.” in the future.
Hmm, car guy like his dad?
He loves playing with his blocks.
Little buddy loves his blankie.
Aaand, there is my dare devil!
Colton Joseph – 1 Year Old
I love having a boy and I love that my boy is as sweet, loving, silly and tenacious as he is.
