Cool Whip was also a first....he loved that on pumpkin pie!

Cole is still a little young for the fun and games of 1 1/2 and 5 year old Blake and Connor...but this time next year...look out!

Here he is...getting a little dirty in some "trash", among one of Jordan Honeyman's latest plans for a residence in Delaware.

Cole experienced his first teething biscuits...ok'd by the pediatrician at his doctor's appointment on Friday (wewhoo...14lbs 8.4 oz!). He also showed mom and dad that sitting up is old news as he bent his little body in half and then returned it to sitting position.
Here's a pic of him chowing down on a biscuit....hilarious... as one of them stuck to his pajamas and he continued to search for it on the tray. I nearly fell to the floor laughing!!!!

Each evening I can't wait for the morning to come so that I can wake up to his smiling face, which melts my heart each and every day. On the weekends, we cherish the mornings when the 3 of us can hang out in bed..even if it means that we don't get to sleep in anymore.
It's amazing how much he's changed our lives. Even Craig, who was so frightened at the prospect of a little one, turned to me before we both drifted off last night and said "take good care of him while i'm gone" (leaving for a short business trip the next morning). Awwwwwww!

Despite the crankiness, Cole seems to be taking the experience in stride. Biting on anything within reach of his uncoordinated fingers, including my hair. He was even a trooper this week when we filled his room with the stench of Vicks to open up his poor nasal passages filled with goop...teething or a cold? I'm sure we'll never know.....when is that tooth going to get here?

There are lots of things that I suppose as Cole's Mommy that I should be showing him, teaching him and encouraging him to do...but every once in a while you just have to take a step back and watch. I thought I'd share a couple of pix of Cole's finer moments lately.
He seems to have a nack for tasting everything ...including cute little girls. He also seems to understand exactly what to do with a straw....if only he could get it to stay in his hand.
He's also flipping over everywhere now! Last night i found him in the crib spanning the width, with his head touching one side and his feet touching the other. He was quite frustrated to find that he couldn't move in this position!

So the football season has begun and this year instead of one freaky fan in the house...there are two! Cole seems to love the game already at the tender age of 4 1/2 months. I'm certain that for him its the bright colored jerseys and the constant motion on the television. Still, Dad loves the idea of having the little one to sit around with on a Saturday afternoon to watch some college football.

Cole would like to annouce the arrival of his newest playmate, his brand new cousin Emory-Grace Catherine Reed. She arrived (11 days late) Monday morning, the 18th of September at 1:17 a.m. Auntie Tiffy barely made it to the birth center and was assisted by Cole's Uncle Jon, Cousins Devon and Chloe (current playmates) , his Pap, and his Mommy. She was a big girl at 9lbs 5 oz. and is sure to outweight Cole is no time! Regardless, he is anxious for her to grow up a little so he can try out his newest wrestling moves :)
Through all the chaos, confusion...and joy we remember our dear "Gram" as she passed away 2 days before Cole was born and ironically, Emory was born on Gram's birthday. These 2 little ones are sure to carry on her spirit.

So i knew this would happen eventually, particularly now that i'm back to work. I knew i'd eventually miss out on some life changing experience of Cole's, that my mom would be the first to see. Cole turned over yesterday. This is a big thing for a 4 month old...and his mother. I tried with all my might to get him to do it again in the evening...no show for the mama...guess i'll just have to wait a little longer.
