Boys will be boys

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.

His first first

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 show for the mama...guess i'll just have to wait a little longer.
