Colin insists on sleeping without shoes and socks. Fine at night, but not for naptime when he's wearing regular clothes. So, we tried Elmo slippers. Nana bought them; GaGa got him to wear them. But, he still wont' wear them to bed. Oh well!

|From Colin Celebrates his Birthday with his Crossroads Buddies|
Mommy brought cupcakes into Colin's daycare at Crossroads this week to celebrate his birthday with all of his friends. Daddy came, too. You can see all the pictures if you click on the big one. Pictured here is Colin's class and the preschool class, and baby Cate is in the background. Brady had already gone home for the day.

|From Colin reads the WSJ|
Colin had a busy Saturday, reading the Wall Street Journal, then going to the zoo with Mommy, Daddy and Aunt Laurie and finally heading to church and then out to Noodles and Company for some mac and cheese. The link to the album is on the big pic; for some reason the formatting isn't working correctly if I link the thumbnail photos.

|From Colin Late Au...|
Even though Colin is with my parents right now, I thought I'd share a few recent photos. First, Colin is with his buddies Jacob and Ethan (left to right) for a backyard swim party. The other photos in this album showing one of our weekend rituals: going to Country Fresh Produce, where he insists on taste testing an apple. He says "apple" the second we hit the parking lot. Finally, he's out for a ride in his dump truck.

|From New Album 8/2...|
Out of all of the things Boppy has taught Colin, from dance moves to "driving cars," the most practical one is probably the all-important boy skill: the art of the spit. Colin, who enjoys teeth brushing as long as he's in charge of it, just recently added spitting to his regimen, thanks to Boppy's modeling.

|From New Album 8/1...|
Grandma brought Colin an Elmo cupcake after dinner. At first, he wasn't sure what to think. Then, when he realized that Elmo was chocolate cake under the icing, he got excited. But, once the cupcake was gone, Colin said, "Eh-oh Elmo. Go?" Which meant, "Where did Elmo go?" And then he started crying. That's the last Elmo cupcake.

Colin visited Grandma's recently, where she let him help her make brownies, just like his daddy used to do. I think Colin is sold on the merits of baking. Here are some other fun pictures from the same day. You can click on the picture above to visit the album.

Colin loves Coke. Of course, he's never even tasted it.
I don't know what it says about Mommy and Daddy, but he can't get enough of Diet Coke cans, two-liter bottles and 20 oz-ers. He also likes to take them out of the 12 packs and create towers with them. Here he is with one of his latest creations.
If you want to see more pictures, check out my facebook page, or email me and I'll send them.

I went to Chicago this weekend and hooked up with my long-time friend Aparupa, who is moving back there after B-school. We got to see the river green (sort of) and saw the St. Patty's Day parade.
It's amazing how everyone is Irish in mid-March. Even Barack Obama, and a little Chinese boy we saw with his Ireland flag.
Here we are sitting precariously on a construction road barricade watching the parade.

It's a swing set showroom, so we brought the outdoor fun inside.
The swing sets themselves are hilariously ridiculous, with most of them selling for 6 to 10 grand ON AFTER-HOLIDAY clearance. I think Colin can have a nice metal swing set with a climbing dome.

Jeff and I took Colin to the Duke Energy Children's Museum on a Saturday recently. They have this infant garden where they literally gate the kiddos in, and there's a gatekeeper to make sure no one crawls or runs his way out.
I was showing Colin how some of the playground stuff worked (sadly I still fit in it).

...or whatever it's called. Since I'm trying to get this going, I'm going to borrow from my photo archives from the last few months. This is Colin with buddies Brooklyn and Jackson (and Emma in the back) enjoying the water table at Otter's Totterville or Totter's Otterville, whatever the place is called.
Colin drank so much water, and poured so much on himself, that I had to remove all of his clothes and let him run around naked and beg an employee to dry his clothes in the industrial dryer.
Luckily, this place is in Kentucky, so the no shoes, no shirt, no service rule didn't apply.

Last week, I turned in my VW Beetle, Daisy, for a 2008 Ford Escape...in Kiwi Metallic, of course. When I bought that car in July of 2002, I could never have imagined that within four years I'd be married with a child. So, I didn't consider how having a tiny trunk and two doors might not be the best decision. Besides, I HAD to have one.
Well, after 15 months of cramming Colin in and out of the back seat, I decided it was time to "grow up." Kind of like switching my email to one with my name instead of "ilovefab4," it's just one of those inevitabilities of getting older, I guess. But no more mature, I promise.
At any rate, this awesome guy at my church named Mike who owns a Ford dealership totally hooked me up. After leaving 3 other dealerships in tears, it was an amazingly positive experience buying from his dealership. Here you can see me turning over my keys to him, and him giving me the new keys.
