No time for pictures but....

I figured at least a quick update was in order!

What's new with Colin: Well - he is talking like crazy, we are teaching him to answer phrases like "who goes outside when it snows?" PAPA and "Who loves ya?" MOMMY!, he's learning to say his colors, farm animal noises, can say each of his facial features, and the list goes on. Grandma even tought him to point to his "butt" last weekend. Thanks Mom! :) Just kidding, he's done worse things than that! Last weekend he had a sleepover with Grandma and Papa Heemstra - he was a bit under the weather due to his ear infections and horrid diaper rash but they took good care of him as they always do. I'm so grateful they live close by and are willing to take him whenever called upon! Other than that, he's doing well at daycare, hasn't gotten bitten in nearly a week (yes, that's big news) and has been relatively nicer to "puppy".

What's new with Jason and Robin: the condo is up for sale! Although we know that it could be ages before we receive an offer, we put it on the market. We've had one showing so far and boy is that a hassle. The cleaning, taking the dog to a sitter, getting all the baby toys put away, etc. is quite a task. If they would have offered anything I probably would have taken it just to save the mess of getting the place ready for showing! Last weekend while Colin was at the Grandparents, we went downtown for a wedding at the White Sox stadium club - SO FUN! A very cool venue and a nice relaxing night. In the morning we did some Mag Mile shopping and ice skated at Millenium Park. Robin has been busy with some volunteer work, chairing the basket raffle for the Cancer Support Gala next month and Jason has been dad of the month!

Looking forward to vacation - March is shaping up to be a good one!
