It's crazy how time flies. It's already August! WOW! It seems just yesterday it was January. Colton is about to turn two in less than three months. That means that Rach's baby will be here in less than three months. I can't wait to see you Sport!! (that's what we are calling him for the time being. they haven't decided on a name) Boy am I excited about being Aunt Deb! It's one thing to have a child of your own, but to watch your own sister go through pregnancy! It's amazing! I love being on the sideline, just watching, and smiling. Rach is doing great. The little man is due on Colton's birthday, October 30. I can't wait. I think he will be early. Cause he's already so big. I thought Colton would always be the biggest baby, but this little man is trying his hardest to catch up to his big cousin. It's great. I can't wait to see him, and hold him. I know he will be beautiful!

Mom, Rach and I went a couple weekends ago to register for the little man. It was great! I had all kinds of "good advice", but I managed to just voice the most important things. This is Rach's experience. I don't want to butt in and be a know-it-all. It's also nice to get to watch all of this, and not be the one pregnant. Don't get me wrong, I loved being pregnant, but there is no way I could handle another baby right now, along with Colton...even if the circumstances were different. But, whatever! I'm loving it!

Colton is doing good. He's a bit of a toot! He's started this whining business that's so annoying. I hate it! We are working on stopping that nonsense! But, other than that, he is growing up like a weed. He's getting taller and slimming down a bit. He is just so grown up, and he knows it! I love it! Every day he learns some new word or phrase. One hilarious thing is he will stop doing whatever it is he is doing, get right in your face, tilt his head to the side, and say "what? what?" and keep saying it and changing sides of his head tilt! He says it with so much expression! Just like we say it. I wish I could record it and put it on this blog! I know you all would get a kick out of it!

Well, I guess that's enough babbling from me. I know I say I will try and write more often, but who knows. I can only try! Well, hope everyone is doing great!


  1. Colton is a cutie! And so is his mommy! :)


  2. YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are alive!! :) I loved reading your blog!! You are so sweet--I'm glad to have such a wonderful sister and role model!! You are a wonderful mother and I could only hope to do as good of a job as you!! I can't wait to see you and the rest of the family this weekend!! Tell Colton to stop that whining and to get ready for Aunt Ray Ray!! :) Love you!!

  3. It sounds as if Colton is right on schedule--coming into the "terrible two's," or as I prefer to call it the "terrific two's." I wish I could be around him more often. If I don't get to be around Baby Phillips more than I am Colton, I will feel like I've been dealt a terrible blow. If I get to be around him, I will feel like I have been dealt a terrific blessing. I love you, Mama

  4. Seems like I haven't seen Colton in forever!! My mom has a really cute picture of you and him from the coffee shop. I will get you a copy, its very cute. See you soon!!!
