First Tooth...

It is official...we have a tooth!  Well Colton has a tooth :)  I noticed over the weekend that he had a little white spot that looked like it wanted to break through, and voila it broke through Monday!!  It is crazy how much more a tooth can poke out everyday.  What's crazy is that it isn't a top or bottom middle tooth, it is a top tooth off to the side!  I can't quite tell if it is an incisor or a canine yet, but should be able to tell soon enough!  I was worried a while we were going to have to get him dentures for his birthday :)  Maybe we can ditch that baby food sometime soon...

Got a Referral

We ended back at the doctor yesterday for what we thought was an ear infection starting.  The Dr said his ear was a little red, but not infected yet; he also said he wouldn't be surprised if it turned into one because he has a cold, so just call if it does and he will call in some meds.  While at the appointment, he told us if he does get another he would refer us to an Ear, Nose & Throat specialist.  I told him I would rather go to a specialist now to get it checked out instead of waiting.  That way we would know if it is something that could be fixed with tubes or if Colton's body is just resistant to certain antibiotics.  So he put in a referral for us, super excited!! :)  Hopefully the specialist can tell us something and we can get his ears all straightened out.

All Better Finally :)

Well we ended back at the doctor with Colton's ear infection on the 5th, and the doctor changed his prescription to yet another medicine.  After a few days you could tell it wasn't working, so I called back again and told Colton's nurse his ear was leaking, he wasn't eating, and he wasn't sleeping well.  We were able to finally get an appointment a day and half later and decided that antibiotic injections were the next step.  So for 3 days we had to take him to the doctor's office to get antibiotic shots.  He was such a big boy and only cried for a split second.  After the second day you could tell they were working...finally!!!  He was so much happier, playing more, and finally eating from a bottle again!  He even slept through the night in his own bed 2 nights in a row!  Yay back to sleeping all night and in his own bed again after month of sleepless nights or being in our bed :)  Although I must admint, I did like snuggling up to the little guy at night...

First Ash Wednesday

Colton went to his first Ash Wednesday mass and got his little ashes :)  He is getting to the age where people like to play with him in Church so it is becoming quite a chore to take him to Church.  It isn't a bad thing though, I know people like to play with babies, heck I always played with babies too, I just haven't experienced it from a parents side until now. He likes to use me as a bouncer in church, so he stands on my legs and bounces up and down, then when he catches the attention of someone behind us, they play with him and the laughing/cooing starts.  I love his little laugh don't get me wrong, but he doesn't do it when people are singing, just when there is silence...complete silence!  Then he decides to let our a shriek of laughter haha :) it's super cute, but I'm sure some people don't like it when they are trying to pray.  Oh well, it's a short phase :)

His first ashes!

8 months

My oh my how the past 8 months have flown by!  Everyone said it would go by quick, but I didn't realize it would go by that quick.  This time last year we hadn't even decided on a name, hadn't put up his crib yet, hadn't bought may clothes.  Now this past weekend I packed up clothes he's outgrown and dropped him baby bed down because I caught him trying to put his arm over the side!  Time just needs to slow down...sure wish I could freeze frame time.

What?!? No I wasn't going to Gigi's tree...


Colton has started crawling...well sort of.  It isn't crawl so much as dragging his entire body around by only using his arms!  It is so cute and strange all at the same time.  He sees something he wants and 'crawls' towards it, dragging his legs behind himself as if they aren't even there.  I know he'll catch on soon enough on how much his legs can help him get around and how much faster!  As much as I want him to figure it out, I don't because then I know there is no stopping him :)  Here are some pics...don't mind the tree my mom is turning it into her 'seasonal' tree haha!
