Colin's 1st steps, Baseball Game, and Mother's Day

What an exciting and wonderful weekend, except for the overcast cloudy weather!
Saturday we were getting ready to run to the grocery store and Colin was standing up holding onto me and I let go and he took FOUR steps all by himself. The great thing is that Matt, Katherine, and I were all there to see it! Through out the weekend he would stand up take 2-4 steps on his own, then sit back down! Now that he knows how, it shouldn't be too long before we are chasing after him! Not that we are not already, he is a VERY fast crawler!
Saturday evening we took the kids to the Astro's baseball game. We met up with Matt's parents and had a nice evening at the ballpark. This was Katherine's 3rd or 4th time going and it was Colin's 1st. Colin sat most of the game and just looked around, people watched, and snacked on ballpark food! Katherine was really well behaved too. She got to go play at Squeeze Play, an inside playground, she watched part of the game, and really enjoyed her ballpark food (pretzel and cotton candy)! When the crowd was doing the wave, Katherine turned to me, and said " Mommy look at that, that's magic!" Ahh to be that age where people raising their arms in unison is magic!

Sunday, Matt made us French Toast for breakfast, yummy! Katherine and Colin got me a very sweet Mother's Day card and flowers (thank you Matt!). We went and BBQ'ed at my parents for lunch, then went to the pool, but it was overcast and the water was freezing, so we enjoyed the hot tub for a little while, then went back home. We all curled up on the couch and watched Princess and Frog!

This weekend we decided not to wake Colin up for his early morning bottle, he is drinking more than enough milk, and can go down a bottle. So no alarms set, BESIDES Colin's eternal one. We used to get him up at 4:30am to have a bottle, on Saturday he woke up at 4:50 SCREAMING, drank 7 ounces in 5 minutes, then back to bed! Sunday he wake up at 4:15 crying to eat, ate his bottle in 5 minutes, then STAYED up ALL morning! No sleeping in on Mother's Day for me! All that being said, I really can't complain after the countless months of BEGGING Colin to eat and sitting in the rocking chair crying because my child refuses to eat, then when he did eat, he would spit up half of it due to severe reflux! I rather get less sleep and him be loving his food, than go through all that!
