Welcome

Though most of this blog contains pictures, it's also a detailed account of my life living with three boys. And yes, they are all boys. Hope you enjoy... they're pretty cute (but often smell).

Cole on the Plane

Happy to report we made it to Seattle and the flight was better than expected. No crying or whining. Cole only slept for about 40 minutes but he was a good lil guy the entire flight!

1st Birthday Party

null

Yesterday we celebrated Cole's first birthday at the house. It was a great time and it was so nice to have so many people to come and celebrate with us! I'm happy to report that Cole had a great time... no meltdowns or stranger danger! He was quite the flirt actually!

Here are some pictures from the day... including the "first cake" pictures!

Bruiser

Just picked up lil man. Second injury report of the week (bruised eye on Wednesday and bloody nose today). We are in so much trouble once this lil guy starts playing sports.
Might call hospital now to reserve a space at urgent care - I foresee a lot of broken bones and stitches!

Bruiser

Apparently lil man took a tumble while carrying a toy at daycare.
Apparently daycare didn't feel it necessary to call his Mama to tell her.
Apparently someone at daycare wants to have a matching black eye tomorrow b/c they didn't call his Mama!
AKA: Mama is mad at daycare.

A Hard Realization

Me: Do I need to bring Cole in to follow up on his ear infection?
Doctor: No, unless he's still acting sick
Me: No, he's doing really well
Doctor: Great! In any case, they'll check his ears at his one-year appointment. Did you schedule it yet?
Me: No (rolling my eyes as its way too far out to plan that)
Doctor: Ok- just let us know what works and we will see you in SIX WEEKS
Me: (gasping for air at the realization that Cole will be a year old in six weeks- I promptly hung-up on the doctor)
