After singing for a minute, Brody decided he wanted to get up and dance. He also tried to get Colby to dance. He was trying to teach him how to "shake his booty." I promise he is saying "booty," even though it sounds like something else!
Yes, there is never a dull moment at the Hitchcock House, and I love every single second of it! How could I not smile and thank God when I watch these two amazing boys that He has blessed us with? I love my little man and my little monkey more than words can express!

Dr. Liske has just instructed us to continue trying more and more high fat/ high calorie solid foods and not obsess over the number of ounces of milk that he is drinking. Ha! Easier said than done! This is going to be extremely hard for me!!! I have written down every ounce that has gone into Colby's mouth since he was born. I honestly could look back and tell you exactly how many ounces he drank on any given day. I know it seems crazy, but it helped me in some way. Of course, it also stressed me out, since I always knew the days he didn't eat "enough."
I have also been told to not take Colby for any more weight checks until his cath procedure on July 15th. Wow! That is an entire month before he will be weighed again. This just seems crazy to me, because I have taken him in for weight checks every 1-2 weeks since bringing him home from the hospital. How will I ever make it?
I guess these instructions from Dr. Liske are good for us, especially me. Obsessing and constant weighing is not going to help anything. I have to let go, relax some, and realize that I am not in control!! God is in control, and He will continue to take care of our monkey, just like He has over the last 10 months.
I wish I could tell you that we will be doctor appt free until his cath, but I can't. Colby has a follow up appointment with his neurologist on Tuesday of next week. I am not sure what to expect from this appointment, but I am hoping that it is problem free. It should be a simple exam to make sure he is not suffering any complications from the seizures he had when he was born. We will keep you posted!

Below are some pictures from the last couple of weeks. I think I've gone a little picture crazy lately. As soon as I pull out a camera, both boys just start smiling...they know the drill!! : )
Our first trip to the pool. Brody loves walking and splashing in the baby pool, and Colby has fun playing with toys and watching.
Colby staying cool in his tent (thanks again for the tent Sarah...it is great!)
Max and Brody
Brody got his first set of golf clubs, and the other night, we all went over to the golf course so he could try them out. He was so excited to be playing golf "just like daddy," and Colby had fun watching them from his stroller. Our friends, David and Tracy (Max's parents), went with us. It is fun to watch Brody and Max play together. I think they are both going to be pretty good golfers!
Another place that we like to go on hot summer days/nights are the fountains at the Streets of Indian Lake. The Streets is an outdoor mall, and in the center of the mall are fountains that kids can play in and run through. Both Brody and Colby love playing in water, so this is always a big hit!
There is a pond in our neighborhood, and the other night, we walked over to do some fishing. This was Brody's first fishing experience, and he loved it! He even has his own little fishing pole that Jason and Rachel gave him for his 1st birthday (Thanks guys!) I have a feeling that we will be spending many more nights over at the pond.
