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).

Cabin time

Cole and fam had a great day up at cabin. First snowmobile trip too!
Me: still at home but feeling better. Think the worst has passed. Fingers crossed.

Some pictures from the week

Cole and J have had a great week up in forest lake. Lots of family in town so they've been having a lot of fun. Me: I've had to work... And then get sick. Not fun, but I've been getting lots of text updates.

2 Years Old

It's totally and utterly crazy to know I have a two year old son. If there was ever a time for a "WTF" this is it!

Yearly Update on Cole:
  • He's the smartest kid in the world (not biased): he's mastered every puzzle we've given him, the pre-school Monkey game (on the iPad) is a snap, he can count to 13, knows pretty much every animal by name and sound they make, knows all his body parts, his vocabulary is better then some adults, he can recite almost every book he owns, he can spell his name, he applies "feelings" to different situations, he corrects his sentence structure and uses the correct tense (past and present). I feel like he's a four year old! 
  • He's coordinated: whether we're putting together a puzzle or shooting hockey, the kid's hand-eye coordination is unreal! 
  • He's a charmer: he says his "please and thank you's" on a regular basis, but lately it's the "I love you mamas" that make me melt. 
  • He's kinda a brat: Those terrible-two-tantrums started early and boy, are those fun! I would love to say they only happen once in a while... but I'd be lying. We typically see some form of Eloc (Cole backwards = his scary side) daily - sometimes it's not that bad... other times, well, let's just say I'm learning patience like never before.
  • He's really cute
