Introducing . . . Colby!


Hi, I'm Colby. My Mom likes to tell everyone that I'm a happy, easy going baby. I really love listening to all the sounds around me, especially music. I'm a snacker - which means I'd rather eat a little and then rest and then come back to eat a little more, which is a first for Mom's babies I guess. She also says I put smiles on everyone's faces in our family. Here's a few more things she has to say about me:


On January 24th at 7:30am we checked into the hospital for our induction. After a complication-free labor and delivery Mr.Colby made his grand entrance into the world at 2:38 pm.


Weighing in at 8 pounds 4 ounces and measuring 21 inches long, Colby is our biggest baby.


Julie was hoping for a sister, but knowing she doesn't have to share a room helped her warm right up to her baby brother. She absolutely loves being the big sister, can you tell?


Jacob wants to show off Colby to anyone and everyone that comes to our door, even if they're strangers. Jacob's also been a little concerned about Colby being healthy, but we can happily reassure him that everything is a-ok with this little guy.


Our family enjoyed watching the Super Bowl with our newest family member. We're so glad to have Colby around and hope you all get to meet him soon.
