Colby 8 months old
Hali making dinner for Colby
Colby and Hali are so great with each other. Colby loves that he can get around and is content playing by himself or with Hali for some periods of time. Hali loves being a big sister. She helps out with all she can. Today we were doing star fall and when it gets to the b for bear the bear roars and she came up to Colby and patted him on the head and gave him a side hug and said, "its okay Colby, your okay Colby." It was cute, but funny because he was not scared. Yesterday Colby made his way down the hall and was roaring. Hali pretended to be scared, screamed and hid behind papa at the other end of the hall saying, "mom, Colby scared me." Then she would run back laughing. All the while Colby was crawling down the hall and when she got close he would roar and they would both just laugh and laugh, it was really fun to watch. He eventually made it down the hall with lots of encouragement from Hali, "come on Colby you can do it... come on."
Hali also loves to do laundry sometimes. Hali helps me put all the clothes in and out of the machines and helps fold. She has been able to fold a towel for a while now but I got it on tape. It's fun to watch her!
Colby is now standing on his own for about 8-10 seconds at a time, as of last night. He just lets go, stands and gets so excited. He is such a little funny guy. He has been walking behind this little toy box all day to get around.
Colby can now wave hi or bye, clap and say da-da! I have yet to get them on tape though :(
