Fall is here

So today we worked on a getting a good photo of Colin for a fall photo card to send to some out of state relatives. Here is a blooper (and preview):

I can't take credit for the pumpkin idea. I saw it on someone's (a strangers) blog last year and loved it. I am a copy cat. =)

The Bachelor

I read on that ABC will announce the next Bachelor on the October 13th episode of DWTS. They also said that sources say the producers will be selecting one of the three men from The Bachelorette with Jillian: Jake, Kipton, or Reid. I will be happy with any of those and will look forward to a good season.

Left or Right Handed

Colin has just started to grab at things. I notice that he always uses his left hand. I don't know if that has any indication on if he will be right or left handed, but it is an observation I made.

I also went to let Molly outside today and came back to find him pretty much turned onto his belly. That one darn arm just always gets stuck! Just about there!

Cuter everyday

I like pictures that compare Colin's size at different dates. I happen to have a couple in the Bumbo at about 6 weeks difference:

At around 6 weeks old and almost 12 weeks old.

I can't believe how much he as changed and how much bigger he has gotten!
He is also doing much better! The Doctor Rx'd Levsin and he has been a different baby ever since! After 11 weeks, I am finally getting to enjoy my new baby!

Oh little playmate

Come out and play with me.

Mady and Colin had lots of fun getting to know each other last night. Colin doesn't really do much but lay there, but Mady is much more active and was able to roll around and figure out who this other little person was!

I call him Mr. Peanut

Is this normal?

I've just gotta know...talked to nurse at Pediatrician's office about getting an Rx called in to pick up on Friday...Come Sunday there is STILL nothing at the drug store to pick up...and it wasn't sent to the other locations. It just wasn't called in.

And so I call today and do the usual leave a message routine, trying to get this filled. I called at about 8:10am. Right after they opened. It is 2pm and I haven't gotten a call yet and his Rx STILL hasn't been called in.

I am getting ticked off...

But is this normal? Or are they just forgetting about me? Am I going to have to physically go down there to get to talk to someone...because I will - with crying baby in tow.

So many uses

for the vacuum.

My recipe for putting Colin to sleep - sometimes unintentionally:

1 moby wrap
1 baby
1 vacuum

Insert baby into wrap (facing front or back) and clean the house. The kiddo will be asleep in no time:

Does anyone own season 2 of LOST? We just started watching it on NetFlix instant view, so we can watch a new episode right after another if we want. I could get them sent to us on disc, but I hate waiting for the next disc to come when something big is about to happen.

If you have it and wouldn't mind letting me borrow it, please let me know!

Sunday afternoon, Andrew and I went to see Wicked at TPAC and I loved it! I have actually never seen all of the Wizard of Oz, so I just added it to my Netflix list. I have a feeling I will view the movie differently than if I had seen it first and then Wicked. Because now, I am not going to believe the Wicked Witch is really a bad person.

The set was amazing and so was the music. I told Andrew that he now had to take me to see Beauty and the Beast next June for my birthday.

Thinking about Christmas

How bad is it that Santa already bought something for little Colin? My husband will have to restrain me, me b/c whether he is good or bad, he is going to have a Merry Christmas. I couldn't pass up the oh so cute piece of kiddie luggage at Super Target today (the only downside to being back at work in Smyrna....spending too much money at Super Target). I know, boring present for a kid, but that is one of two "practical" gifts Santa will be bringing this year. That, and an umbrella stroller (OK, I benefit a little more from that one).

I figure if he won't really remember what he gets at this young of an age anyway, I may as well sneak a few things in there he actually needs along with the toys.

Back to work...

...and loving it.

Except I can't help but wonder - am I at work during the time that he is at his happiest? Will I come home to the fussiest time of the day?

But at the same time, I feel a little more prepared to handle the meltdown that might occur as I haven't had to deal with it all day.

And with the next baby (as everyone says I will be want, even though I can't imagine doing this again for a while...) I will not take 9 weeks of maternity leave. I am realizing that as fun as being a stay at home mom sounds is not for me. At least not for me full time. Maybe when Colin is a little older I will revisit the possibility again.

But for now - I love my desk, my chair, my coffee cup, my multi-colored pens, my calendar, and even my neglected plant.

This office is now my quite place and I am SO thankful to have it.
