Johnny Jumper

Mute while playing.  Audio really bad.

2nd tooth (take two)

Started a fever with tooth number to on Sunday night, right after I wrote my last post.  He has been more fussy, but over all it isn't too bad.  I'm a glad I can put him down today though.  Holding him all the time was making mommy be too lazy.

Teething again

Collin is working on his second tooth.  He is taking his pacifier this time (yeah) and is a very happy little boy.  The only time we notice anything is at nap time and bed time.  He is such a good little boy.

Pacifier again

The reason Collin was not taking his pacifier was he was teething.  I had no idea, but he now has a tooth.  He is back to sucking on his "snooze".  Yeah!

Picture Update

Mommy put him by the rings on the rug.  He scooted under the tray table.

Collin has decided he doesn't always want a pacifier any more. He takes it at nap time and during the night. Rest of the time, it's a gamble.  Mommy is so sad.
Collin has started solid foods. He loves his Rice and Oatmeal. Kale did not work. Collin threw it up, and had diarrhea for a couple of days. He is eating Carrots (Aaron's turn to choose). He likes them so far.

guess what....even more bruises

Just when I thought I couldn't bruise more, the Insurance lady came to do our physicals. She couldn't seem to find a vein. She doubled my previous record of 5 prick for a blood draw. Yes, she stuck me 10 times. I thought she only poked me 8, but when I removed the band-aids, there were 10 holes, and 3 more bruises. So not my week.

I decided to do a face plant on the sidewalk today. Collin was in his car seat, so he is fine, but I've got some big bruises coming. 4 nice people stopped to help out, so it could have been a lot worse. I'll be fine soon, I banged up my bad knee (Aaron took Collin when he got home for a few hours so I could ice it), some other sore spots, I am glad Heavenly Father was watching over me. I was walking with Collin in front of me and didn't see the step from the parking lot to the side walk. Good news though, Kmart marked down it's sale to $1.99. I didn't shop too much because of my fall, but Aaron took Collin and picked up some nice things.

March was the month for colds! Every one had at least one at the Fairbourn's. We are all hoping that April is better.
Last week Collin was all about blowing raspberries, and this week it is all about seeing how loud he can be. I'll be very grateful when this phase passes. He is getting more mobile, but no crawling yet. Sometimes he moves without realizing he is, and it shocks him to wind up different places. He scooted himself partway under the futon last night. He liked that because we cover the futon with a sheet, and he was playing with it.
Aaron's mom is here for the weekend. She came up to babysit on Friday so we could go to the annual President's Ball (Akron Stake Presidency puts it on every year). She is watching Conference with us (thanks to, and will go back home tonight.
Tomorrow we are mailing off an application to Aaron's old high school. Please pray for us to get a job for next year out of Youngstown.
