...more where that last one came from...part deux

This was the last night at Tumbleweed. Colton just melted into Aunt Lissa's arms for the ENTIRE night. She was loving every second of it. They just snuggled so much!
hahahahahaha this was the picture that made us laugh like idiots all night. Hugh Daddy is always a good sport :-)

Lissa gave up Colton for a minute so Uncle Nunu could get some lovin' in.

Me and my buddie Evan

Melissa just eatin' it up. No, not her 16 Chimichanga's she ordered....snuggles. :-)

Grandad said that he wanted as much snuggle time as possible so Colton took a nap there on his tummy.

Aunt Lola and King of Cute

playin with Tad

Colton LOVED Kim. She got to hold him lots!

Nothing personal, Kim. He was just hungry and tired...

Evan and Blakey resting after long rounds of eater gun fights.

We have all seen that smile....it's never good thing!!

Nate and his tiny gril...

...more where that last one came from...

They were snuggle buddies that GORGEOUS day we cooked out!
Colton LOVES his Grammy...but who doesn't?!

He did NOT want to take a nap that day, he was so into the action and checking everythingout. You can see Grandad winning that battle momentarily though.

Over at Aunt Lissa and Uncle Nunu's for a cookout on his tiny grill.

Colton kept making this face in the car as he was fighting taking a nap.

Looking up at his Grammy.

Grandad and Colton's favorite spot.

Mike really does turn into a teddy bear with kids. I love it!

Evan is puttin' on a show!

AuntE Linda and Mr. C

He was winding down for bed and I remember thinking how beautiful his eyes and skin were to me.

Grandad says burp and Colton says NO.

Snugglin' with Aunt Lissa. He loved that!

Colton would talk to Uncle Jason a lot. Jason would say something and Colton would answer back like 95% of the time. It was awesome.

Grammy just getting done making Colton laugh. It wasn't 60 seconds in the airport and Grammy had him laughing already!

Mr. Cuteness Comin' Through....

Colton loved snuggling with Aunt Lissa. Of course her belly helped him throw himself over and get comfy :-P

Serisouly Melissa, like every picture of us is on that couch....

Colton and uncle Mike getting some one-on-one time in

Melissa getting practice for #2

Colton can read Evan's mind.....he is plotting for when Addison gets here.....

Lovin' the TV

Utah's funny joke of April Showers. Glad I was enjoying beautiful weather in KY

snugglin' with dad

"...if u like it then u should'a put a diper on it. Oh oh oh!!" All the single babies!!

after Church play time

He outgrew that outfit overnight!

I had the opportunity to take a work trip for a new job that I started and it just happened to be in Louisville, KY so I got to take Mr. Little Britches with me. I didn't have a chance to meet up with friends and not even all of my family, but I will be coming back in July / August so hopefully it will be a longer trip and everyone can meet Colton.
These pics are from home and KY. Charla, can you send me some pics you took with your camera? When I was over at your house I didn't have mine...
Colton is doing new things all of the time it's hard for me to keep up. I ALMOST forgive my mother for not making me a baby book.... :-) There is just too much to keep up with!! He just talks all of the time and he has come to be a snuggle bunny especially when he wakes up from naps. He discovered his toes and is always reaching for them. He also loves to laugh!! He is taking baths in the big bathtub with a towel laid out for him (we started this at Grammy's out of necessity) but he LOVES it. He just splashes and gets his hands wet and sucks away furiously! Oh yeah, he is SO CLOSE to rolling over from his back to his tummy. He reaches and grabs and pulls and strains. He is so strong!! He has the other rolling over down pat.
I swear he is trying to crawl too. I tried to get it on video but he stopped really doing it. He raises on his knees, reaches, wiggles, pushes. He'll turn on his tummy 90 degrees in just a few seconds if he sees a toy he wants. I hope he is not an early crawler/walker just yet....if I think it's hard now, I should just wait, right Charla?! I am not ready to keep up with that; but I don't think I have much say in the matter.
He is just such a joy to have in my life. He brings smiles and tears (good ones :-) and just rolls with his day with such spirit and zest. I love him so much and it just grows and grows. I am so blessed to be a mommy of such a wonderful, and handsome, little guy.
