Dear Colin,

Today you are 4 weeks old. I can't believe how quickly time is flying by! You really are getting big every day, and we can't wait to see how much you've grown when we take you to your doctor's appointment on Friday.

This weekend daddy took us up Flagstaff Mountain, and you really enjoyed being outside. It's been really hot this summer, so we thought a drive up into the mountains would be a good way to beat the heat. You slept pretty much the entire time, but we got some good pictures of you!

Lately you've been fighting naps - which means you get really tired during the day, and can only sleep when you are laying on mommy or daddy... it's your favorite thing. You slept really well last night - you generally do. We have our good days and our bad days. You are still sleeping in our bed - you just don't seem ready for your crib yet...it's so big and you are still so small. I secretly love it so I'm not in any real hurry to move you to your own bed yet.

You helped me make daddy's birthday cake yesterday when you woke up from your nap - we had fun helping dad celebrate, and you thought the best way to make it a memorable birthday for dad would be to cry throughout our lunch out! You were simply tired and again - fighting a nap. I think (hope) it's just a phase you'll grow out of.
You finally liked hanging out in your swing this morning - you were there for about 20 minutes, which let mommy get some breakfast :) Yay!

Mommy and Daddy are thinking about moving to Tulsa, where daddy's family lives - so right now we are planning that out, looking for a house for you and for jobs. We really want you to have everything, and to grow up around family, so this seems to be the best option. We are really excited about this new prospect, especially since you'll have a cousin so close to you in age.

I love you honey - you are such an amazing little guy and I can't imagine what my life was like without you in it.
