Time for a Cole Update

Cole is obviously getting bigger and bigger. It feels weird that he is already 15 months old. He is already wearing 18 month old clothing, but I hear that is pretty normal.

Here are some pictures and descriptions of what he has been up to.

Jamie, my sister-in-law, took this picture. It is so cute. Cole loves any sort of sports balls. Although Brian and I hope he will love baseball most, we will have to see.


When I go to the mall (which is very rare), Cole gets so bored riding in his stroller. I like to let him get out and play on these cars. He loves them. I don’t even have to put change in them. He just acts like he is driving them.

Cole loves to help me in the kitchen. I can’t sweep when he is awake or around because he takes the broom away from me. We actually bought him his own little broom, and now every time I give him his broom and I start to sweep, he still takes mine and tries to sweep with both. He can also open doors, so he gets into the pantry and loves to take these utensils out of the box.


Brian has a money chain necklace (don’t worry, he doesn’t wear it) and Cole found it the other day. We put it on him and he automatically started acting like he was all cool.


I bought Cole a little toolbox to try to keep him a little occupied. It has a little hammer for him to hammer in some pegs, which he loves. For some reason, he also likes to sit on it.


Brian stuck his tongue out one day to Cole, and now anytime Cole sees a camera, he sticks his tongue out. It is too cute to ask him to stop.


It’s a boy!

Brian and I went to the doctor’s office today to get our ultrasound. It looks like we are about 19 weeks and they said it is definitely a boy. Their equipment was awesome. Better than when they showed us Cole. We were able to see everything without any questions.

We are so excited. Cole has been such a wonderful little boy, and I am glad to be getting another one. We only want one girl anyway, so every time we have a boy, it lowers chances of more girls. Yeah. Plus, everyone who has two boys close in age, has said it is great.

Looks like we will be having baby Slim right around February 10th. (Scheduled C-sections have some plus sides to them).

Brian already has their futures planned out too. You can see on his blog.

I have never been a huge fan of reading. I have maybe completed a total of 20 books in my entire life. I was in Vernal a few weeks ago, visiting my sister-in-law, Stacey, and she had the Twilight books. I decided to try it out since EVERYONE has said how good they are. At first I felt weird reading about vampires, but as I started reading it, I totally got hooked.

The result ended up being 2,444 pages in 14 days. That is pretty good for me. Now that I am done with all of the books, I feel like I have a lot more time on my hands. It turns out that reading the books was all I was doing with my free time.

Well, watching the previews about the movie has made me a little disappointed, but I still want to see it.
