Cole Day

Cole had the shortest stay in the Valley Hospital NICU.  10 Days.  So today, is HIS day!  2 years ago, today, we brought our first triplet home.

Then...

5.3 lbs

Now...

32 lbs

A glimpse of Cole...
He runs everywhere!
He climbs on everything!
He loves books!

I love his laugh and his smile.  It reminds me of Zoe's.  As a matter of fact, the other day, Shane and Zoe were watching an old video.  From where I was listening from, I swore it was Cole.  I was wrong.  It was Zoe...about the same age that Cole is now.  I sat and watched it with Zoe and Shane and was astounded at how much they even acted alike!

I think someday, he'll be a chef.  When he gets his dinner, he puts EVERYTHING in the bowl and mixes it up.  Not to worry...he eats it all (does he look like he's ever passed up a meal?)  When Cole eats something that he likes (okay...he likes a lot, so maybe this is when he REALLY likes something), he leans back, rubs his belly and declares, "Nuuuuuuuuuuuuummmy!"

Cole's very "stingy" with his tricks.  I know he can talk, but he won't say things when you ask him to.  I know he can wave, but he won't...if you ask.  He loves to give kisses, but don't ask for it...you won't get one.  The same goes with names.  He knows who I am, but will only say it on his own terms.  I love when he does, though.  "Mom-mom". Not "Mommy" or "Momma"...but "Mom-mom". I love it! And usually, it's said with a twinkle in his eye as he's looking up at me.



Maybe because he likes to run, but Cole absolutely loves everything outside.  He has no fear and climbs right up into the Treehouse and easily slides down the "fast slide".  He will spend loads of time on the trampoline...you guessed it...RUNNING!

Favorite words:
"Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww..."
"Uh Oh"
"Wow"
"Stuck!"  (Maybe that's because he's always trying to fit through spaces that Eli and Ava can easily clear and thus...he gets "stuck")

What a difference 2 years makes! No wonder he wanted to get home first there were so many places to go, so much to do and so much to eat. He is a delightful little boy!

Oh, happy day, Cole! Your little man is so very sweet. I think he's going to continue to grow into a big teddy bear.

Cole would be a fabulous chef! If he ever wants some training, just send him my way! (BTW, i love his outfit in that picture!) You make cute people!

I don't know why exactly, but Cole's pictures remind me a lot of Chase....
