Collin is 1 today!! It has been quite a year- starting with his birth coming 6 weeks early, a 2 and a half week stay in the hospital, major reflux/spitting up issues- and the fun stuff too: snuggly newborn stage, cute first smiles, watching him roll all over (which neither of his brothers did so it was exciting!), his very unique grunty laugh, army style crawling, lots of kisses and snuggles. Collin is a very fun baby. He loves to be with us wherever we are in the house and if we sit on the floor he immediately crawls over to crawl on us or pull up on us. He loves his big brothers and always smiles at them. He's a bit shy with strangers and will bury his head on my shoulder after giving them a shy smile. His smile and face lights up the room and makes us so happy. He's very persistent- he'll keep trying and trying to get something or go somewhere that he wants. We are so happy that after his rocky start he is healthy and hitting all his developmental milestones on time. He is a joy and a great addition to our family. We love you Collin!
Here are a few pictures from his first year:
