Hopefully you recognize Colin in the middle. Sam is to his right and Ben to his left. I know what your thinking but Colin only looks bigger because he is more propped up on the pillow (he and Ben are about the same size, Sam is bigger, at least in weight). Colin is a chart topper for 4 months and the O boys were 8 weeks early so they are still on the small side, they would probably all be considered average 6 months old size. Sam and Ben are very clearly months ahead of Colin (as they should be) in terms of motor skills and cognition. As you can see from one of the 'outtakes' where Colin is still just chillin' (read: stuck) and the O boys have wandered (alright rolled) off.
After we got home, Sean was letting Colin chew on his finger and when he said "Ouch" I just thought he was playing around but he wasn't! Colin is cutting his first tooth. Watch out Sam and Ben, next play date Colin will be biting back! It is his lower left front tooth. Nothing to see yet but you can definitely feel it. He doesn't seem too troubled by it at the moment, we'll see how it goes.

On our last morning in Washington DC, Colin feel back asleep (to sleep?) after his morning feeding.. I left him to snuggle with his daddy while I did other things.. I went back to wake him up at 9:30 knowing he would sleep during the entire car ride. He was so cute I had to take a video.

Colin likes to talk to us while he is on his changing table.. I don't know why but as soon as you put him on it he starts talking... The camera distracts him at the beginging and then a truck goes by catching his attention at the end, but in the middle he is just cute as a button.
The Happybaby company also makes organic freshly frozen baby food, which is better than jarred food because it doesn't need any of the preservatives and it is made from organic fruits and veggies. It is really the next best thing to making it yourself (which is still a possibility). I have no idea if this will be prohibitively expensive yet, but the cereal isn't that bad so I'm optimistic. It is available locally but not at a store I currently shop at so I have to check it out. (As if shopping at four different stores for groceries isn't bad enough already, I'm going to add another!)
