Katherine and Colin... She loves him so much
She thought he was talking too much during picture time!
Bath Time!
Splish Splash.. this is fun!

This week was a very busy week in the Eyring household.

Tuesday Nov. 3 – Colin turns 7 months old.
He is now 15 lbs 4 oz. So he gained over a pound this month!
- Sits up by himself
- Can wave
- Says dada a lot.. too much.. working on Mama right now
- On his belly, will push off with feet to scoot forward
- Will go from sitting to on belly, wants to crawl.
- Drinks about 5 ½ ounces a bottle

Wednesday Nov. 5 – Cardiology appointment.
Colin had an echo, EKG, and chest x-ray… all came back great! Colin’s cardiologist was very happy with his heart and developmental progress. He was always happy that Colin gained good weight this month, he is still on the smaller side, so we need to work on him bulking up! But we are on a good track!
We are now off quarantine, but still have to be careful due to flu season. Colin is cleared for his 6 month vaccinations, regular flu shot & H1N1 shot, and to be circumcised finally.
Colin is also cleared for travel, which we plan on doing a lot of now. It’s time to go out and see the world!
Read my shirt.. "Chicks dig scars!"

Friday Nov. 6 – I went to a lingerie shower for one of my best friends getting married in December, which I am in the wedding. It was great to see her, her family, and other bridesmaids! And to have a chance to have a girls night. They were waking up Saturday morning to go to Louisiana to go gambling, unfortunately not the time in my life where I can take a girls weekend. Katherine spent the night with Matt’s parents and Matt & Colin had a guy’s night watching action movies.

Saturday Nov. 7 – Went to Matt’s parents to pick up Katherine and watched a very heartbreaking A&M game. We lost by one point. Katherine, Colin, and Matt were decked in their A&M gear. Before we left Colin spit up on my A&M shirt, and the other two were in the laundry with spit up on them!

Daddy & Colin... Gig 'Em Aggies
Katherine pulling weeds at Grandma's, she is such a big helper. A picture of a flower Katherine took, she is a great photographer!

Sunday Nov. 8 – Gave the house a real good cleaning. Russell, Lara, and my mom came over for lunch and to play with the kids. My mom brought me lots of old photo albums, they are selling their house finally and clearing it out! Looking through old pictures, I realized growing up I had no taste in clothes or hair what so ever! Katherine said the funniest thing on Sunday. We were outside with my mom and Russell and she asked me if I remember when there was ants in the flower garden. I said “Yes”. She then told them that they were upset and daddy sprayed them and made them all feel better! Poor kid, no clue at all.

Love your updates...glad little Colin is gaining weight and progressing nicely-what a little miracle...and Miss Kat, what a sweetie. Love following your family. Tell Matt hi. Oh, and I didn't even have good taste in clothing in college...I can think of a couple of pairs of pants that were aweful!
