nearly 8 months

I cannot believe that Collin is coming up on 8 months old. Where did all the time go. I swear I had more of it!

Well we are settled here in Liberty Lake Washington. It is very beautiful here and I am dying for summer to come around so I can enjoy the beauty surrounding us. We're living in a two bedroom apartment for now, about half the size of our home in Benson (I really miss Benson by the way) It was a little tricky to get all the stuff put away into the right places but I think we've done it. We plan to stay here long enough to save some money, and make sure the new job works out, then we'll find another home when we know more what we'll be doing with our lives.
Just hanging out with Dad, probably watching football

Collin is growing like a weed. He's already outgrown most of the clothes he was given at Christmas and prefers to wear 18 mo. sizes. He cut his top two teeth, (not as easy as the bottom two) got his first serious cold and is oh so close to crawling. He sits up all by himself, successfully finger feeds himself 1 out of 5 tries and rolls around the house like a mad man. He's sleeping better than ever(which is REALLY well since he's always slept well) and we gave him his first hair cut!
and after
not any award winning hair cut, but I thought it was pretty decent for a 7 month old wiggly boy. I think this picture is my all time favorite. I was trying to take a picture of the new do for the grandparents and I said "Collin Smile!" and this is the look I got! I laughed so hard.
I am really starting to enjoy just being home. I wasn't expecting it to be such an adjustment. I was so burnt out from my last job I feel as if I've been recovering from something this last month. It takes a while to shed off that much stress.

Please forgive the extreme lack of blogging. The last few months have been a little stressful. Long story short Trevor, Collin and I have relocated to Liberty Lake Washington. We're still getting settled, and I plan to make a huge blog about it later!
