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).

It's Crazy...

It's crazy how much Cole has changed over the past few months. I didn't think it was possible since the first year was SO full of changes... but everyday J and I are more amazed at Cole.

He's so smart. He's just sucking up so much information everyday and is able to apply it. You ask him where his nose/tummy/head/ears/eyes/mouth are and he points to them. You ask him to go pick something up and bring it to you and he does it. You say "lets go put jammies on" and he starts climbing up the stairs to his room.

He's becoming more vocal. Yes, the new found glory of his scream makes him giggle... not so much with us. BUT he now imitates words. As he's signing "more" he's trying to say it. He yells "goal" or at least it really sounds like it. He tries to say words after you... net, up, thanks, hi...

He's running. Gone are the days of attempting to walk and falling down. Now Cole runs all over the house and where ever else he has the room to move. This also applies to dancing. The boy loves his music and will drop it like its hot!

He's a funny kid. He tries to wink (it looks more like a hard blink). He likes to climb all over J when he's laying on the floor. Loves to play hide and seek. Loves to bang his head on things. Ok, he's a little odd sometimes. He giggles all the time. Is very ticklish under his neck and on his feet. Loves animals and other kids. LOVES to play hockey (I'm working on basketball) and has a hell of a throwing arm.

He's HUGE! I don't know exact height or weight but he can now easily reach anything on the kitchen table, door knobs, the cable box and just about anything under 4 feet tall. He's rocking 2T clothes, size 5 diapers and size 6 shoes (he's like a lab puppy - huge feet).

Here's a few pictures - I'll try and be better about getting more and more videos.

Giggle Man

Even though I missed it in person (new business trip), Jason captured Cole's awesome giggle-session in the tub!

Enjoy and happy Friday!

Blowing Kisses

It's a little fuzzy as I took this from my phone... but Cole learned how to blow kisses complete with hand motion and pucker sound!
