Your first ten months have been an adventure for the three of us. Your smiles have warmed hearts, your laugh brightened days and your love of everyone have brought peace to childless souls. Every where you go, you leave mothers and hopeful mothers with a smile on their face.
Collin, you have learned to eat with your 8 teeth in the last couple of weeks, and you sink your teeth into everything you can get into your mouth. You eat peas, green beans, squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, applesauce, bananas, peaches, plums, nectarines, oatmeal, rice cereal, Gerber Puffs, Cheerios and bread.
Today I write this, as you play in your little pen, talking to yourself, and having a grand time. You are sitting in a chair, waving your arms about, and bouncing up and down. You have so much energy and spirit. Singing is one of your favorite activities. When you are happy you sing all the time. You also sing along with the hymns at church and bring smiles when anyone hears you. You love to read magazines. When I say read, I mean crumple and rip pages. You also play the children's piano everyday.
You can climb all the chairs and the couch in your pen. Mommy and Daddy had to buy a shelving unit for on top of the TV to keep you from getting in to the video's and gaming systems on top of the TV.
You barely just out grew size 3 month clothes, and are so cute in your 6 month outfits.
Before your Mommy and Daddy are ready, you will be walking and soon after that you will turn one.
We love you little man. Please always remember that.
