Time, Time, Time.....

Wow! Where does the time go? Today Colin is 6 months old. I can't believe that it has already been 6 months since he was born. We are loving this stage. He can sit up....not unattended though. He smiles all day at his 6 month check up you would have thought the doctor was his best friend.....that changed after the shots! We haven't been up to much, life changes a lot when you have little one. Mike had a scan and it came back clear. Sigh of relief....each check up we worry that we wont get good news but with lots of prayers and faith we have had yet another good scan. They are going to now do chest x-rays, blood work, and an ultra sound every other check up. Which is good news the scans are a little hard on the body to have every 3 months. I am extra grateful as the holidays start for Mike and that he is healthy and here for Colin and I. We are truly blessed and now as we approach the year mark for Mike I can't think of anything more than to be grateful. Life is great and we love being parents to Colin!

September has come and is going. It seems like the months are just flying by. In September we celebrated Mikes birthday, went camping, Colin had his 4 month check up, got a jogging stroller, Mike went on a boys trip to the football game and spent every waking moment with our little Colin. Here are just a couple photos of what the Sorensen's have been up to.

(Colin has to make sure I don't leave his side so he keeps his hand on my shoulder) Momma's boy!!!

Colin loved the running stroller and his BYU hat!

Colin played around in this basket for a little bit...until he found his hands they are far more interested than any toy.

Hanging out at Wasatch with family!

4 MONTHS and growing....

We had our 4 month check up with Colin yesterday. All is well, he is a very healthy, happy baby. He may have a larger head than the average baby but it is still very cute....just more to love right? He is a growing boy and seems to get bigger and bigger each day. We love his thick legs and his gut that hangs over his pants. Here are a couple of pictures of our handsome man. With out fail everyone says he looks just like his dad or his papa Sorensen but the doctor did say he would probably have brown eyes.....the only feature from his mom!

Just about ready to play in the johnny jumper.....maybe a couple more weeks until he knows what to do when he is in it
Getting ready to go out on the boat with Grandpa Parker

Hanging out with gets kind of boring sometimes as you can tell in his face

playing on the floor with dad at night before bedtime

Colin doesn't suck his thumb just two fingers

Just about to try rice cereal for the first time

Hanging out in his robe.....bath time is one of our favorite things to do

Just chillin around the house with nothing to do but smile!

Toddlers and Tiaras

I felt like a pageant mom last week. I got this great idea to put Colin in the baby contest. Of course we think he is the cutest baby around so why wouldn't anyone else? Well when I got to the baby contest I realized everyone in the room thought they had the cutest baby....that's when the guilt started setting in. I was about to make someone judge the "beauty" of my baby to win a medal? After standing in a what seemed to be a giant sauna/gym for an hour to be judged and get Colin's picture taken we went home. I continued to have some guilt the rest of the night until the next morning when we found out Colin won 1st place with a cash prize and would be in the Spanish Fork parade. Watch out other moms, that's right I have the cutest baby in town!!! Okay, so it's probably the last baby contest I will enter Colin in but Colin did win and he was so good during the parade he finally crashed on Uncle Curty after showing off his good looks to the town. Way to go Colin!!!

Colin showed his dimples off to us the other day! Never mind all the funny nosies and baby talk Mike and I were doing to get Colin to smile this big. We must have been making pretty big fools of ourselves! Thank heavens we dont have a bootielicious baby but a dimplicious boy!

Rock a bye baby....

I know I should have posted pictures of our finished babies room before Colin arrived but I didn't get around to it. When I was picking up the house the other day I thought Mike and I both worked hard to finish Colin's room so I should show it off especially for all the hard work Mike put in to help get it done.

I made the bedding....SURPRISE! I'm not one for projects but I couldn't find anything I wanted to buy in the stores so I decided to make my own. I wanted it to be super simple. We went for an antique baseball look for the theme of the room. We are hoping Colin doesn't hate baseball when he is old enough to realize how his room is decorated.

You probably can't tell but in the three red frames are a picture of Colin's Grandpa Parker, Papa Sorensen and Mike playing baseball when they were little boys (this is my favorite part about his room).
Mike painted the room, put up the railing on the wall, put the glider chair together and hung all the pictures on the wall. He only managed to almost take his eye out with a nail once. It turned out just how I wanted it. Hopefully this doesn't bore everyone too much but I had to show off our handy's pretty limited in our home.

2 Weeks.....

I know it has only been two weeks but I thought I would share a couple pictures we have taken of Colin for anyone who is interested. He really doesn't do much but eat, sleep, and poop. But we still find him very interested and love everything about him. We still can't decide who he looks like but each day he changes so we will just wait and see if he is a Sorensen or Parker look.

This is a super funny face but he thinks he can already hold his head up so we had to take a picture.

We are looking forward to sunshine so he can wear his summer clothes even though they are still too big for him! He is wearing a pair of shorts but they are almost to his armpits and they still go to his ankles.....not much hope for height on this guy.
