Rilo Girl

Realized I never posted these photos of Rilo on here.  I was finishing up a roll of film from a client and she actually posed for me!  Update on Rilo over on {collected}!

I printed this first one in an 8x10 because gosh she is cute.

Collier Brooks 5 Months

Holy cow...Collier is 5 months now!  He is HUGE.  I need to get his official stats but he is a big kid.  Everything about him is just big...hands, feet, all of it.  He is the happiest kid on the block.  Full of smiles for anyone looking his way.  Seriously, I can't get over how sweet and happy he is all the time.

I've stopped swaddling him now, since he definitely rolls tummy to back and occasionally goes back to tummy.  He's actually sleeping better than he was a few weeks ago when he was swaddled.  He's even putting himself back to sleep when he wakes up.  He takes a quick morning nap and then a long afternoon nap (just like Rilo did at his age).

I cannot for the life of me get him to take a binky or a bottle.  He just chews on everything, but never understands that he needs to suck on it.  He's found his thumb, but same thing, just gnaws on it instead. I'm going to keep trying though because I would love to be able to leave for a little bit without stressing.  Especially since I'm shooting a wedding in a few weeks where I'll be gone nearly all day. (Cross your fingers Mom).

He loves his toes right now.  I love it when he's sitting and he holds his toes.  So cute.  He's getting better at sitting for longer periods of time.  He loves to play with his toys, mostly just chewing on everything.

I'm so glad he's around to make me smile all the day long (especially when the terrible twos show up around here).  We love our Collier Bud!

Baby Bow Tie

Adam's sister Melissa sent the cutest set of matching bow ties for Adam and Collier.  I really need to take some photos of the two of them together, but I did manage to get a few of just Collier.  These were taken way late, when the light was just about gone so they are not super great quality but cute nonetheless.

Two Cuties

Me: "You're the cutest."

Rilo: "Yeah. In the whole wide world."

Hahaha.  What an ego!!

Is my child shooting a free throw?!!  Poppy...what have you been teaching her?

Collier Brooks-4 Months

But really he's halfway to 5!  My big, sweet boy!  Smiley, happy until he's not (and then he has this crazy piercing scream he does to send me into panic mode) and talkative.  He loves to gnaw on his hands and has started to figure out his feet.  He's playing with toys and when he's excited his kicks his feet straight in front of him repeatedly.  He likes the water, just like Rilo.  And he spits up just like her...but in much smaller quantities I feel like.  Or maybe I'm just used to it at this point?!  His eyes are still big and blue...Rilo's had started changing by this point, so we'll see if they stay!  We just love our little Collier Bud.
