First Christmas

Merry Christmas!

The Colvin's
Brett, Jody & Ashton

Brett took this picture of our cute little guy on Christmas Day.  He got tons of toys and some clothes.  He is one loved little guy.  He made Christmas in our home a lot different and we LOVED it.

Yes we are alive, December has been filled with lots of things going on.
  • A windstorm that blew half of our roof off, blew our fence down and ripped up our sprinkling system
  • A pipe that busted in our basement and flooded one of the rooms, causing the floor to be jack hammered up
  • As a result of above doing laundry at my moms since I can't use my washer.
  • Brett being sick
  • Ashton's first trip to Disneyland
  • Ashton being sick.
  • Sadie being sick.
And all of this BEFORE Christmas.  Let's just say our big Christmas Tree didn't get put up.  Thank goodness I have 3 smaller ones that I put up.

He is ROLLING over. He will only roll for you twice and after that he gets upset, I am totally fine with him not rolling everywhere yet.  I can't believe that he is almost 5 months old.   Where has the time gone.

 He loves his warm jammers, he now has 3 sets of them.
 This look is a look that I give a lot. He is so my child.
 This is the face that he normally gives me when I don't feed him fast enough. Notice the nice bib? Yep it says I Love Sushi.
 Just chillin in his doggie jammers.
He has figured out how to move around in his excersaucer.

Keeper of Toys

He is the keeper of  his toys.  He loves it when I sit him up with Elmo and his Teddy, of course when this was taken he was tired and just wanted to go to sleep.  Poor little man is teething and it's not been overly great for him.  He was in his crib the other night after his bath and all of the sudden he started blowing bubbles and then he started laughing.  He did it all night long, he even did it to Dusty and lets just say Dusty wasn't a fan of this.

This morning while Brett and I were getting ready for work, I put him in his bouncy chair and put the chair on the vanity in the bathroom, he sat there and talked, blew bubbles, chewed on his hands and laughed for about 20 minutes this morning.

I keep getting people telling me what big eyes he has, at first I wondered if they were to big, but to me they are just the right size,  he will lift his eyebrows at me and get a twinkle in his eye and then just start talking to me. He has a smile that draws people to him and it just makes you want to smile.  If I have had a bad day and he's been fussy all he has to do is smile at me and it takes all the frustration away.    We sure do love this little man so much.

We have started giving Ashton rice cereal and pears at night and he loves them.

It has seriously made him such a happy baby.  After he is done he will kick his legs, laugh and talk for about a hour.  He then gets a bath which the past couple of night he has really loved and splashed so much that the water was coming out of the sides of his tub. He was funny to watch. He is growing up so fast.  He now wants to sit up more and just looks around.  We think he is starting to get teeth in already, poor kid.

This is him with his bear that his cousin Sarah made for him before he was born.

3 Months

From this:

To this:

It's crazy to think that our little man is already 3 months old. 

Thursday, September 15, 2011


We sure do love our little guy.

People who know me, know I have wanted a baby for a while. I finally had to realize it was on Heavenly Father's time not mine. Lets just say it has been quite the adjustment to motherhood. Don't get me wrong I love every minute of it. It's not what I want to do, it's what Ashton wants. I did get to see his first smile( it was at Brett) and his first coo.

The other adjustment will be going back to work, this one is going to be hard. I would love to stay home with him but that just isn't in the cards right now. I am very grateful for the family that will be watching him. I know he will be in good hands. Wish me luck as I head back to work next week.

One month

I can't believe Ashton is one month old. We have been spending some time up in Idaho with brett's mom, it's nice and peaceful. Brett has been going home during the week to work. When he got here on Friday the first thing he said was "oh my gosh he has grown so much" I do have to agree looking back to the pictures of the day he was born he has grown quite a bit.

We had a great 4th, but I have discovered that I HATE fireworks. I had just put Ashton in his crib and no sooner than I left the room there were fireworks outside never mind this was at 2AM I was not pleased since it woke the baby right up. Good thing we won't be around for the 24th. On a brighter note we went to the doctor on Friday for his 2week check up and he is doing great. He is back up to birth weight and he is 21 inches long. He is sleeping 4-5 hours between feedings which is nice. Brett and I are adjusting to having a baby, the dogs don't quite know what to think. We love to just sit and watch the faces that he makes. He is one funny baby.

Meet our newest addition to our home. Ashton Lee Colvin. He is the sweetest baby, and so good. I couldn't have asked for a better baby. We are adjusting to life with a sweet infant.
These were taken by his dad on the day we came home from the hospital.

Friday, July 1, 2011


Ashton Lee Colvin was born June 30, 2011 at 1:50 a.m. He weighed 7 lbs and 2 oz and is 20 inches long. He is perfect. From the time we got to the hospital to the time he was born was 2.5 hours. We love him so much already. I will post pictures soon.

These are what I have been craving lately, I swear this baby is going to come out wanting sweets. That is all I have been craving lately.. We are down to 9 days now, I can't believe it's in the single digits already. I am SO ready for him to come.

Seriously 37.5 weeks?  I am so ready for this little guy to come. I went to the Doctor yesterday and he said that I could come at anytime, so now it's just a waiting game. I feel like he has dropped and I am in more pain than I was before.  A saying that is always said in our house is  there's no time like the present.  So if we aren't ready for him well OH WELL I guess since there is no time like the present for him to come.  I have my bag packed and it's in the car so IF something happens while I am at work, Brett has it and doesn't have to go back home to get it.  If I truly start thinking about the whole labor process I get freaked out.  Here goes to an easy labor and maybe a couple more weeks.  Wish me luck, I am thinking I am going to need it :)

Here is what his crib and bedding looks like. I can now say I am ready for him to come. 5 weeks seems like a long/short time.

Baby Update.

I went to the Doctor last Friday and found out I "get" to take more iron.  As the doctor put it " he is sucking everything out of you."  So I started taking iron and didn't think anything of it, I thought he was just making up that I would have more energy.  I have to take my pre-natal vitamins at the opposite time of the day that I take my iron.  WELL yesterday I forgot to take my vitamins and I found out just how much that little boost of iron helps me. I have learned that the doctor WAS right. Imagine that.  I got to hear my little guy as well and it amazes me that there is a human inside of me. The doctor told me he has a healthy heartbeat. I am now at almost 33 weeks which is CRAZY to me.  I am now down to going every 2 weeks, my belly has really grown over the past couple of days.  This little guy loves to move.  I was sitting in a meeting today and my boss was talking and all the baby would do it move and kick, as soon as my boss stopped talking the baby stopped moving. So either one of two things, he loves my boss or he hates him  only time will tell I guess.  We are also having a bet on if he will come early, on time or late.

A lot of people have been bugging me about getting some pregnancy photos taken. We had talked about this "issue" as I like to call it before we found out we were expecting.  We were both on the same page that we wouldn't have any taken.  I have tried to explain why I don't want them done to some people and they just don't get it. SO for those who are waiting for pictures of me being pregnant you will be waiting for a long time. Brett has respected my opinion on not wanting them taken.  I did tell him he can take 1 photo of me before this little guy comes.  I don't want to sound rude, but everyone is entitled to their own opinions, just because someone else  WANTS me to get a picture taken doesn't mean I WANT IT.

On a brighter note, I did get 2 of his blankets done and they turned out so cute. I still have 2 more to go but I need to get some fabric that I like to go with them.

We are still on the count down I will be 32 weeks along on Friday, after my appointment on Friday I go every 2 weeks.  To me when I think about it, I am on the home stretch only 8 weeks (or so) to go.  There have been debates in our house of when he is going to come, some people think it's going to be early some people think it's going to be late. I guess we will see!

Question that I got for today was, is that a basketball or are you having a baby.

Dear Snow,
PLEASE go away and don't return until November.

100 Days until our little guy joins our family. We are so excited to see him and start this new chapter in our lives. I can't believe that we are on the home stretch, time has flown by.

Thursday, February 17, 2011


One less thing that I have to do before this little guy gets here is to be registered for baby stuff :) I went and registered at Target and Baby R Us. It making me get even more excited to meet this little guy.

As an update, I have felt him moving and kicking. He LOVES to make my back hurt. I have found if I give him a little nudge and tell him he needs to move, he will move.

Tuesday, February 8, 2011


At work today I was standing outside my cubicle, my boss walks by stops and starts laughing. He says this picture comes to mind. I look up and down and notice I don't have my shoes on (since they were killing my feet) I just gave him a puzzled look and he continued to laugh and said "Barefoot and Pregnant"  I finally got it. Now I know why so many pregnant women HATE wearing shoes, they kill your feet, not to mention your back hurts.
There is my laugh for the day!

Half Way

Brett and I were talking this morning while getting ready for work and I told him I was half way done, his response to me was REALLY?   It's crazy to us that it's been 20 weeks already. I can't wait for the next 20 weeks to go by so we can meet this little dude. Some days I look really pregnant and other days I don't I do feel uncomfortable some of the time. If I find a comfortable spot I have to stay there for a while or else I am afraid I will not find it again. I am so grateful to Brett, I know it hasn't been easy on him. Here is to another 20 or so weeks!

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

oh boy, oh boy, OH BOY!

Yep that is right, we are having a BOY! We are so excited. I can't wait to meet this little guy. Now to decide on a name.

Thursday, January 6, 2011

It's almost that time

Which do you think it is? We will find out in a couple of weeks.
Honestly as long as it's healthy I don't really matter.
