Just milk please

Wow...about two weeks since the last update. So what's new?....

Well, Colby is off formula and 100% on milk now. He's also taking a multivitamin in his milk but is doing very well with it. Tracey and I are thankful that he's off the formula. It was a bit of a pain to it was about $50/week. He continues to eat like a champ, eating pretty much whatever we eat as long as his little front teeth and back gums can chew it.

He's still only a little over 20 pounds. But he was last weighed before he went onto milk and I think that's adding a little weight to him. His hair is finally starting to darken a bit and get a little longer.

As you can see, he's talking a bit more. He was totally into doing that "What does a lion say" and he's respond "rarrrrr", then "what does a snake say " to which, he'd reply "sssssss". But this seems to be old news as he rarely replies to either now. He's moved on to bigger and better things, like "baba" for bottle and "baby". It melts my heart to hear him ask for his bottle when he sees that Tracey or I are preparing it. he'll sit there and just keep saying "bababab baba bababa baba".

He's also got a bit of a dancer in him. Whenever there's any kind of music around, he'll immediately start waiving his arms. He LOVES music. He's just too cute!!!!

We continue to struggle to get him on his belly, to crawl or to stand. It's not that he can't, it's more that he doesn't want to. We have seen an increase in his arm and leg strength. So we'll keep it up and when he's ready, he'll surprise us all and start standing.

That's about the extent of things for now. I'll try not to let another 2 weeks go buy before I post another update.
