Catching up...

Dear Colin,

Wow, so much has happened in the last week. I suppose I need to start getting used to that - you growing up and getting big and everything changing daily it seems. You really are getting to be such a big boy! At your doctor's appointment on Friday we learned you are 8lbs 14ozs - I cannnot believe you are almost 9lbs - you gained almost two whole pounds in about three weeks! You still love to eat :). You are also 22 1/2 inches long, so you've grown two inches since you were born. Daddy joked with the nurse who was measuring you and asked when they stopped referring to it as length and started referring to it as height... I guess we still have some time on that one.

You also had your one month "birthday". You looked so cute...see??

Also, yesterday when we were doing some "tummy time" (which you generally love) you decided it was the perfect time to roll over - from your belly to your back, amazing both mommy and daddy who were right there to see it happen for the first time ever! You then proceeded to do it several more times, as if to prove to us that it wasn't a fluke, that you knew exactly what you were doing and didn't care that all the baby books said you weren't supposed to be doing that for another month or so at least.

This is you right after rolling over from your belly:

And, to prove that your favorite place to sleep is on mommy, here's a cute picture of one of your recent naps - I have no idea how you can sleep like that, but you stayed there for over an hour...
