Hey everybody, it's Collin. I think this may be my 4th or 5th post on here in the past 4 years, so...yeah, 1 post a year seems about right. Anyways, I got a Mac for my birthday this year so I thought I would put it to good use. I've been creating videos with it and I'm going to try and post the latest one here below. It's of our vacation to Boston earlier this year. We also went to New York City but that is going to have to be a completely separate video.

We started a new tradition in the Day household a couple months ago. On Friday nights where we don't have any plans on commitments, we are making our own pizza pies! I hope that as Cayden gets older and we add to our family that it will become a pizza/game/movie night where we can eat pizza and then play a board game or make a big pallet on the floor and watch a movie as a family. But right now, it's just a pizza night with some time spent playing with Cayden afterwards. Usually chase or wrestling which he enjoys very much :)
I buy the already made crusts from the bakery at Central Market and oh mylanta...they're SO good. I could literally just eat the bread. The only kind I've made is pepperoni. I intend on trying some different things but just haven't yet. I watched the way they make the pizzas at Grimaldi's in New York (while I was waiting in line for the bathroom for like 15 minutes!) so I try to copy them the best I can. I brush a little evoo on the crust, slice fresh mozzarella cheese and place it all over, add just a touch of pizza sauce, and top with pepperoni's. It is soooo good. You will never order takeout again! And it's cheaper too :) Bake it at 350 for 10-15 minutes. Yum.
We have plans this Friday night so we're having it tonight and the smell from my oven is making my mouth water!! As you can tell from the below picture, it is 100% Cayden approved! You cannot tell in the photo, but he had pizza all over his face!

My friend Leslie took these pictures for us on Cayden's 7 month birthday.
He was so little and cuddly! He still had his sweet baby face and those precious baby rolls.
He had recently started sitting up unassisted and wasn't mobile yet.
He would let just about anyone hold him.
What a precious, rollie-pollie, immobile, smiley, thing he was!
And here he is today.
The baby face is gone. His eyes are filled with wonder and curiosity.
He is a walking/running, talking (although most of it we cannot understand) little boy. He is shy but full of personality. And I cannot get him to sit still for 15 seconds to take a picture!
He is all boy. He loves climbing, anything to do with balls, and wrestling with his daddy. And he still cuddles with me. What more could a mama ask for!
He makes the most hilarious noises and faces and is constantly making us laugh!
He is such a blessing and brings more joy to our lives than I will ever be able to express on paper. It makes me wonder what he'll be like one year from today.

Since I haven't blogged much lately and am, for whatever reason, feeling pressured to do so, here's what's going on in our house.
One. For whatever lame brain reason, I decided that it would be a good idea for me to do P90X with Collin. I am kicking myself now for that. Actually, I am way too sore and tired to kick myself. We started the program on Monday so we're only on day three. And it's kicking my rear. Like seriously. I knew that I was out of shape seeing as I haven't been active in....I don't even know how long now. But wow. It's a HUGE commitment too because it takes at least 1 hour (sometimes closer to an hour and a half if you have to do the ab ripper x...ugh) six days a week. I am definitely sore but not to the point of being reeeaaallly sore, like in pain sore, but I feel it coming. I've heard that by tomorrow you're about ready to give up but tomorrow is the yoga and that's supposed to help. We'll see. I am trying to focus on how good I'll feel and all the old clothes I'll be able to fit into by Halloween!
Two. I have been doing Beth Moore's study of Revelation with a sweet group of girls and I am sad that it's almost over. I have learned a lot about a very misunderstood book of the Bible. One of the main things that I remember Beth echoing over and over is, "The way we live our lives matters! IT MATTERS!" If you have the chance to do it, I highly recommend.
Three. Collin is doing really well at work. He came home yesterday with a new blue blazer that his boss bought him. It was one of those fancy schmancy deals where they come to you, take your measurements, and then custom make it. There's a tag inside that says, "Custom made for Collin Day". Ha!
Four. We made a trip this past weekend to Houston to see the twins. They are itty bitty and precious and sleep almost constantly - we hardly saw their eyes open! The pictures don't do justice to how tiny they are.
Cayden wasn't too sure what to think about them and most of the time didn't even act like they were there! I thought that he might act jealous that we were holding them but he didn't really care much.
Nick and Carissa think that McKenna looks more like a Vann. And she tends to favor big sister Eden at that age a little more than Jillian does.
Jillian Grace - Nick and Carissa think she looks more like a Day. I managed to catch her with her eyes open! I put my hand in front of her so that you could get an idea of how tiny they are!
This would have been the cutest picture! I was way sad that it's blurry but you can still tell that she was smiling with her eyes open! Precious girl. We were totally bonding here :)
I don't want to leave out Big Sister Eden. She is adjusting to her new role in the family and is going to be a wonderful big sister! Her and Uncle Collin bonded a lot this weekend. I have a feeling that if they got to see each other more often, they would be best of friends.
And here's one of our little monkey just because. We need some boy cousins in this family to even things out! Maybe Aunt Carissa and Uncle Nick will go for #4 and have a boy... One can hope :)
