Colin Drake was
born one year ago on Dec 30th, 2009, around 3:45pm at Clovis Community hospital.
He is a perfectly healthy, happy baby boy.
From early on (see pictures) he would smile with his whole, big ol' mouth. He has
a dimple. He was born with a spot of dark hair on his blond head, but that seems to be growing out. But people mostly remark on his eyes. Huge, sparkling, light blue eyes with long, long eyelashes.
He gets REALLY excited when ever music comes on. In church, when the organ starts, he waves his arm like he is leading mucic and raised his eyebrows with a "whoa! listen to that" look on his face. When he first learned to sit up, he would bounce both legs at the same time (quite a feat) to the beat of what ever music was on. He LOVES to dance with his mom. He eats everything and takes long naps. He wakes up a lot in the night, but goes right back to sleep.
At one year, he has taken his first steps, but isn't confident yet. He can stand up from the ground (without help), loves water, loves his brothers and sisters, he can clap, use a bit of sign language. He is very expressive- jokes, teasing, mad faces, laughing games, noises, etc.) He is supe
r happy all the time, and it is rare for him to be cranky. Just lately he gets put out if he can't have something. His favorite things to do are dancing, running with someone holding his hands, taking a bath, and going outside. He spends his days puttering around,following Jack, moving, watching the dog, exploring, and eating, eating, eating.
We love out last little man and are so glad he
is in our family. He brings us joy.
