While wandering around Peach Days we discovered a professional photographer. She offered to take some pictures of Colin and then of the family for a really good price. We figured we'd try it and see how the pictures turned out. Colin looked absolutely darling and drew quite the crowd. She even got a decent picture of all of us together. We picked out the best of the pictures. What I really like about this photographer is that she gave us a CD of the photos so that we can print as many copies as we want.
Colin is getting so much bigger. We measured him and found out that he is now 23 inches in height. At this rate, Colin won't be in newborn clothes much longer. Colin is tracking us and knows what it means when he sees a bottle. He is getting better at sleeping longer through the night but still gets us up once or twice when he gets hungry. He is getting better at sitting up on his own now. Colin is starting to smile. I keep trying to get a picture but I'm not fast enough. We have started tummy time but Colin doesn't like so I don't leave him on his tummy for very long. He loves the outdoors and wants to see everything when we go outside.
As for Brian and I things are going pretty well. We have been really busy lately though. Brian is slowly figuring out how to run a classroom. He gave the kids the first math test of the semester this past week. Some of them are doing great and are understanding the concepts but others are obviously having some problems. I have helped him grade papers a couple of times and it's interesting to see the trends. Brian also gave a Spanish quiz this past week. It was simple (one that I could do) and the kids did really well on it. Brian didn't have any one fail it. He wants to get a special computer program to help him teach Spanish. Right now he's using flashcards and photocopied book pages to teach so the program will help Brian a lot. As for me, I have been busy working and taking care of Colin. I get an extra day off work every month which I really enjoy. I am counting the days until the new year is here and I can look more at going part-time.
