Big & Little

There is something about Drew when he is hanging with Colby. He looks so big! He is the gentlest of big brothers. Yesterday I caught a few moments that were pretty sweet. Drew tying Colby's roller blades. Reading him a story nestled in on the couch. Measuring him while Ty had his ears checked at the doctor. A piggy back with a side of giggles. I don't know what's better, being witness to the sweet side of Drew or the look of complete adoration on Colby's face. We are one lucky family.

Ahh, the ol summer pastime of mini golf. Colby has been waiting for it to open since February! It is clear that we are a competitive family and there are moments that get a little heated :) Colby is excited the whole time and fist pumps and jumps follow every hole. Ella enjoys it and is careful to count everyone's strokes. Drew tries to cheat. Tyler likes to race ahead. Mike and I take it a little too seriously! But, we all have fun. Man, I love summer!

Colby G

Colby right now....

- if he sees you eating he runs to grab his own fork to share - he blocks your way whenever he gets a chance, you must say the magic word to get past. Magic word? Huggy time! Followed by a super hug

- speaking of time...he now wears a watch. When asked for the time he looks intently at the watch and answers times such as "36!"

- he is the pet of all our friends. He is regularly sitting on others laps, asking them to make him food and hugging them. Don't throw a ball to him, you'll be stuck playing catch forever!

- he is in a rush - can't wait for school, wants to join a hockey team, and wants the training wheels off.
