Happy Halloween!

From Fred, Wilma and Dino the Dinosaur!

Every year our ward has an awesome trunk or treat chili cook-off and they always get a huge group off people to show... members and nonmembers alike. They put together tons of carnival activities and even award the best chili of the night. This year they topped it off with the youth pulling off a flash mob to Thriller. All in all, it was a blast, and a perfect missionary opportunity.

Mom got Colby this dinosaur costume before he was even born which ended up being the perfect size for him. Woohoo! So we decided that Fred and Wilma Flinstone would be the best match for our little dinosaur. This actually ended up being my first sewing project ever and it turned out totally awesome. I finished my dress and was going to start Spence's outfit when he decided that he wanted to make his himself. Uh.... AWESOME! He did such a great job and we finished just in time!

Shots Round Two

Or round three I guess if you count the hospital.

Colby did sooo much better with his shots this time! He didn't start crying until the very last shot and we walked out of the office acting like nothing had happened. It was awesome. I had purposely scheduled his appointment so that Spencer would be able to come since I had a hard time at his two month appointment. A few days before his appointment, we found out that Spencer had to be at school for some reason instead and that there was no point in rescheduling because he wasn't going to be getting out early any day before Colby and I had to leave to visit Mom and Dad in Oregon. So I just took him and it gave me hope that his 6 month appointment won't be too rough either.

Cross your fingers!

He ran a small fever the next day, and then again a week after the shots which happened as well for his 2 month immunizations. Oh I just love him! He's so so cute!

4 months

I really need to get better at putting up this post right when Colby is 4 months old so that I can remember what milestones he reaches and when. Unfortunately since I am way late in posting this, I can't remember much. I do know his stats though!

Weight: 15 lbs. 3 oz., 54%
Length: 25.75 in., 77%
Head Circumference: 42 cm. 41%

I also remember that he stopped sleeping through the night like he was doing for about 6 weeks or so. Man, those six weeks were awesome. He started waking up two times each night, once around 1 am and then again 4 am or so then would sleep until 7 am. Still, not too bad, but definitely not 12 straight hour nights!

Watching Colby's buddy Kade while his parents went to the temple... we had a blast!

Just look at those leg rolls... love them! :)
