Collins || 10 months


Another month older and another month we've fallen even more in love with you!

You are seeming like less of a baby everyday!  You've started crawling and are getting around everywhere.  Your brothers and especially sister think this is the best!

You are weighing in close to 18 lbs I think.  You are wearing size 4 diapers and size 12 month clothes.  You nurse in the morning and at night and get 2 bottles at school (nurse at home).  You usually take around 7oz. in your bottle.  You are eating baby food and table food 2-3 times a day.  You really like fruit baby food but will eat pretty much everything.  We've started giving you some table food and you really like bananas, nilla wafers, and bread.

You are still sleeping great although you had another ear infection and that made you pretty uncomfortable for a night or 2.  You go to bed around 7:30 and wake up around 6am.  You still take 2 naps a day -- morning and afternoon.  You love your paci and sleep with several in your bed at night.  You want one in your mouth and like to hold one in each hand!

You have 2 bottom teeth but looks like 1-2 more will be coming through soon.  You still love to be held and will usually crawl right over to us to pick you up!  You are rotten but I don't mind! :)

So thankful for how healthy and happy you are!  You are so loved!

We had the best Easter.  It's such a special time of year and nothing more important than celebrating the resurrection of our savior, Jesus! 
Lots of pictures below:
Some pre Easter fun -- dying eggs and egg hunts with family
Pictures Easter morning after the bunny visited and then all dressed up in our Easter finest - if there is ever an occasion to dress up, Easter would be it!
My mom and I spent ALOT of time sewing Easter dresses for the girls.  They are beautiful and the girls looked like angels.  Lots of late nights sewing and I'll always treasure those memories and the time spent with my mom and sewing alone late at night just praying over my kiddos while I sewed.  Beyond blessed to have 2 daughters to sew for.  Still have to pinch myself sometimes that I have 4 kiddos.  Goodness, I'm blessed!

A new season of baseball

We are right in the thick of baseball season and loving it!  Sawyer is still obsessed and would spend every waking minute playing, watching or talking baseball!! And Graham is really enjoying his first season.  It's been so fun watching him play and learn and improve.  Keith is the official head coach for Graham's team and they are really good.  And going to the ball park is probably Miller Kate's favorite thing ever!!  She ask to go everyday.  She loves running around, playing on the playground, eating and drinking all kinds of good stuff and all the attention from her grandparents!  Collins is along for the ride and happy as can be!
Here are some pictures from the opening tournament and some of their earlier games!

We are a baseball loving family!  It's our favorite for sure!
