Valentine's Day 2011

Valentine's day this year was super sweet (and I mean that literally)! Adam said something would be delivered on V-Day, so not sure what I was expecting.
I picked up Dallas from school and when we returned home there was a big box at our door step. Dallas wanted to tear into it right away, but I wanted to wait until Adam got home.
After Adam got home we tore into the box and found this!!

Unfortunately, I took these pics after most of the candy was eaten! haha I realized this would be a SWEET post (sorry for the pun) so I put the boxes back together and snapped a few shots.
Before the candy was eaten, each box was filled with various goodies all from the Popcorn Factory.

Thank you my loves, your gifts were a treat!

Indulge in enjoyable recollection of past events

I'm sitting here thinking of what to write for my next post and find myself going through old posts that I've made. I love looking at all the pictures and videos of Dallas. I can't help but to smile when I watch this video of Dallas singing Jingle Bells at age 3 or this one when he was a baby. I can't believe he used to be so little!! Where has the time gone? I'm so glad I took the time to write various posts about him, like this one and posts pics of him like this one! It encourages me to keep current posts and pictures updated of Colt. I'm so proud of my sweet boy! I really miss him being little, but love seeing him grow and learn. Maybe I'm too sentimental, but I'll never have these years back with Dallas and just want to remember every second!

1 Month Old

Wow!! Today our little Coltie Pie is 1 month old! He's been such a fun baby to have, and we are so blessed. Each month until he turns 1 year I'm going to take a picture of him in this little rocking chair. This was mine when I was little, so it carries a sentimintal meaning to me. I tried taking them of Dallas in it, but never stayed very consistent. Speaking of my sweet Dallas Grant, things have gotten a lot better around here. He's enjoying his little brother a lot and hugs and kisses him whenever he gets the chance!
I'm not sure of how much he weighs currently, but guessing Colt is around 11 lbs. He has already grown out of newborns clothes and diapers 2 weeks ago, and well into 0-3 months. I know he's only a month old, but I've already noticed him coming into his own little personality. It's funny to watch his face change from a smile, to a frown, then back to a smile again. He makes funny faces when he's awake and asleep. He doesn't cry a lot, and when he does it's only for an obvious reason, hunger, cold, uncomfortable where he's sitting etc... I've given him a lot of nicknames here and there, but I think I'm going to call him cuddle bug. He loves for me and his daddy to hold him, and will fall asleep in no time if he's lying on my chest.
I'm enjoying every second with him, and looking forward to seeing what the next month has in store for him!

Colt's Newborn Photoshoot

Soon after Colt was born my dear friend, Olivia, offered to take some newborn pictures of him. Of course I was thrilled and immediately said yes! So yesterday, Colt and I finally headed over to her house to capture all his sweetness. He was awake for a while after we got there, but he finally fell asleep, and she could work her magic! I am so impressed by her talent, and started crying when she sent me the proofs yesterday. All the pictures turned out absolutley precious and I'll cherish them always. Thank you so much, Olivia!!
