(LOL, Colby looks as if he wants to say "Dad....what are you doing????")
Colby's been doing very well. His top two teeth have pushed through. You can't see them yet, but you can feel them. That makes four teeth now! He had what looked like a cold, then turned into a cough and now as all but disappeared. We're glad that it didn't turn into anything much. If we can just make it through this cold season without any issues, we'll feel much better!
He has a toy....kind of like a gumball machine where you put little balls in the top, then have to pull a lever to get the balls out again. We've been working with Colby first to understand how to put the balls in and secondly, how to pull the lever and get the balls back out. He's finally got it! It's not 100% of the time, but he gets the connection. I know it may seem like a small thing, but it's just so awesome to see him drawing the connection that if he does something, something else will happen.
He's still not crawling. It seems like he has little strength in his arms. He just won't push himself up. Well...he will, but only for a quick second, then he'll fall onto his belly and he's content to lay there or flip onto his back. We'll have to keep working on that!
Although this is technically Colby's second Thanksgiving, he was in the NICU last year. So we're counting this as his first. We had Tracey's family over our house. We love to entertain and really having Colby interact with other people. It was a nice day.
Colby's crying and probably wants a bottle, so I'm going to wrap up this entry and post it. Hope that all of Colby's Fan Club had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
