Tonight Colby enjoyed his first football game. He went to see his cousin Peyton start at quarterback for the Berry Jaguars (They won 7-0 thanks to an awesome 30 yard pass by Peyton). Unbelievably Colby slept through the first 3 quarters of the game and even the incredibly loud music at half time. Scott and I decided that from now on whenever he is crying and won't go to sleep we'll just play some really loud music and maybe that will work. We were all very proud of Peyton and Colby had fun cheering him on.
Today I did something I never thought that I would ever do. I have been having a hard time getting anything done around the house because Colby will not let me put him down. Well this morning my neighbor Deann came over and helped me put Colby in a snuggly/Baby Bjorn. So here I was walking around the house with Colby strapped to me and doing dishes, laundry and making the bed. I tell you what, that is when I felt like a real stay at home mom. I never thought that I would ever wear one of those things but if that is what it takes to be able to get stuff done than that is what I will have to do. Besides it will give me a good laugh every day. So next time you see someone walking around with a child strapped to them, don't laugh, you do what you got to do to survive.
Needless to say Colby had a pretty good day and a fun night!

Colby is almost 7 weeks now and is changing so much. He has really started to enjoy his bath time. Tonight he was just kicking, swinging his arms, splashing water everywhere and happy as can be. We loved seeing him so happy.
We hope that everyone is doing well and want to thank you all for checking up on our little one.

Colby had a very happy day but has had some tummy problems tonight. He has gotten to where he usually enjoys his baths. Thank goodness. I think they help him relax. Luckily we have only had one more pooping in the tub incident. He has started to follow you with his eyes and coo a little. He also likes to hold hands and for you to talk to him. He smiles some but I think it is more because of a gas bubble or something than on purpose. But hey we will take any smiles we can get.
We are glad that the weekend is here and are looking forward to hanging out with friends and watching some football. WAR EAGLE!!

Well, it has been a fun couple of weeks. A couple of nights ago, Marg and I awoke to a piercing scream. Not a cry, not a grunt, but a blood curdling scream. Colby had milk / acid running out of his nose and mouth. We could tell he was in pain.
Marg called the Dr. that AM and they both agreed that it had been two weeks and time to try something else. They have put Colby on Prilosec. The good news is that he likes the taste. It is a compounded medicine made from pills and sugar syrup. (the pharmacist told us banana flavored). We hope and pray that it works. Other than that, he is growing and gaining weight. He is still a little light for a linebacker. Hopefully, after a couple more lbs, he will be ready to make some tackles.
Colby got to sit thru his first Alabama game last weekend. He must have been nervous for the Tide because he cried for nearly three quarters. Let's see how he enjoys the Tigers this Saturday. By the way, I am trying to be a good husband. I sing the Alabama fight song to Colby to put him to sleep. In all fairness, I now know the Auburn fight song so I sing both.
