Happy Birthday Colby Jace!

We drove to Ridgecrest last weekend to celebrate Colby's first birthday, November 6th. We considered staying home and just having a little party with the kids, but birthday's are always so much more special when you're surrounded by loving family. Colby loved all the attention. . . and the chocolate cake, too!

Before. . .

After. . .

I tried to hold off on the hair cut a little bit longer, but it was getting little too wispy. Knowing that Colby is most likely my last, I'm not at all anxious for him to grow up, but he's already becoming such a big boy right before my eyes. Just the other day, Addie woke up from her nap and was crying. So Colby went and found her mimi (little pink bunny) and brought it to her. He is such a sweet little boy- and ALWAYS so happy! He just goes with the flow, which happens to be pretty crazy around here most of the time. Kailer and Adelynne love him very much and have taught him to be a tough little cookie. Colby's also quite the chatter box, mimicking everything his siblings say and do. He loves to read books and is obsessed with tools- but not those fun little play tools. He insists on the real thing, especially screwdrivers and hammers. He can't be fooled! As sweet and easygoing as he is right now, I have a strong suspicion that he is going to grow up to be a very determined little boy!
