This is my favorite time of year. It is especially wonderful this year because of Cole. He has no idea that Christmas is coming, but I don't care! I'm excited for him and for all the ones to come in his life. I hope I can make it special in some way each year. We are going to find Santa this weekend so Cole can meet him. I hope that goes well and that he isn't freaked out by him! I know it can go either way when he's this little.
So here's a few pictures of what's been going on lately. I'll be sure to post pictures if we find a Santa that isn't too creepy looking :)
6 months old!

The sweetest smile ever.

My little elf, amazed by the Christmas ball!

Busy fall days..

Happy Halloween!!
It's been busy around here, as you can see by me missing a whole month on any update! Little Cole has turned 5 months old, and is creeping up on number 6. I can't believe he's almost half a year old! He is becoming so fun these days, and his personality is so cute!
Currently he's working on:
Sitting up on his own
Mastering rolling over, he's not a fun of tummy time so this is a slow one.
Babbling away, he talks to himself all day long.
Eating oatmeal, rice doesn't work out so well on the belly. Real food begins soon!
Grabs everything, puts it in his mouth, no matter what, feet included.
He is finally giggling! Funny faces always do the trick. He also likes to "chase" Chloe around the house, cracks him up!
His favorite toy is a plastic ring. Oh how he's easily entertained :)
We are so excited for his first holidays! It will be great to see all our family!

The little eater.

Hello. I'm about to have some cereal for the first time.
Hmm.. that was weird.

What is this guy trying to do to me?

Not sure what I think about this stuff..

Maybe it's tasty..?


This stuff rules!

Check me out, I already figured out how this eating thing works!

If you don't have food on your face when it's over, you didn't have a good meal :)

He's the cutest sleeper, ever.

This guy is serious about bath time. He loves it!

I find it silly that I am a little sad that Cole's first summer is ending. I am very excited for next summer though, as he is super pumped about taking baths. Must mean he'll be a water baby! It will be so cute to see him splashing around!
  This little baby of mine is growing so much lately! He's almost four months old. So hard to believe. That also means another round of immunizations are headed his way. Not fun for any of us. I do look forward to see how much he is growing though. Makes me sad and proud at the same time :)
  Here are a few milestones he's made in the last month:
He is sleeping really great these days. Not through the night all the way, but he will go about 4-6 hours in a row, wake once, then sleep til morning. Nothing to complain about there!
He rolled over from his stomach to his back 5 times in a row one day! Not doing it so consistently, but still fun to see him getting stronger!
He had a first real giggle the other day! I was one the phone with Caleb, so he got to hear it as well! Such a great little sound. He still does this funny grunt laugh most of the time, but I'm sure real laughs are sure to come more frequently soon enough.
Other than that he is just being the sweet little baby that he is! I couldn't ask for a better baby, I am so proud of all that he has done already.

Sweet baby

Here's a few pictures of my favorite little man! He is getting so big these days.. I watched a video of him at only 2 weeks old, so much bigger now than he was! I guess it's only going to get worse. I am enjoying every minute with this little man, and all the joy he has brought our lives. So in love :)

Growing boy!

This little guy is just growing right along! He had his two month check up last week. Also, his shots :( He took them like a man though, aside from a little screaming there for a few moments. Poor little guy would cry, then stop, look around, and cry again. I think he was wondering why someone would hurt him since he hadn't been hurt his whole life, all 2 months of it that is.
He is also still 25% in height, weight, and head size. He has been in that group since birth, so he is growing perfectly for his size :) He now weighs in at a whopping 11 lbs even, 22 inches, and his head grew 3 cm, now 39 total. It's amazing that he has gained only 3 lb since birth, because it sure feels like more!
He is also cooing up a storm and smiling like crazy. He is trying so hard to laugh, but hasn't got a real one out quite yet. He appears to be about to discover his hands, as well. He has those things moving constantly. Last week he starting sticking his tongue out, too. So funny. I thought this was a new sign that he was hungry, but it doesn't seem to be the case. Just being a silly little guy.
I can't believe he will be 10 weeks old on Sunday. Time definitely keeps on flying by. I am loving every minute I have with this sweet little boy of mine.
