Happy 3rd Birthday, Reid & Louisa!

Wow! 3 years ago tonight my whole world and life changed. That night I was so happy to see your tiny little faces and finally "meet" you. I was excited to see you. But...I was also terrified! You were so little and it was way too early for you to come. We wondered how long you would stay in the hospital, we wondered what your personalities would be like. Would you be alike, would you take after Mommy or Daddy?

Well, 3 years in...you couldn't be more different! Reid you LOVE to talk and you have sooooo much energy. You question everything and always want to know the details. You love to love! You love life, your family, your friends...you love...EVERYTHING! You have such a great energy about you in everything you do. Your smile, your laughter, your joy...all completely contagious! Thank you for sharing your love of life with us!

Louisa - Ms. Penny and Mollie told us that night you were born that you were going to be our strong willed child...a real fighter. Well they could not have been more right about you! You are timid, shy and pretty reserved and hold off until you have evaluated the situation...then once you feel comfortable, you take off and become the leader. You are passionate about pretty much everything and I love that about you. You love to be my helper in the kitchen, always watching everything I do...you're already act so much like me! You will always be my sweet angel!

I had always heard the term "pride and joy," but I never realy knew what it meant until you two were born. You truly are my pride and joy! It is an honor and a priviledge to be the ones that God chose to take care of you. Thank you for blessing my life daily just by being you. I love you more than you will ever know...you make me so proud...I love you with all of my heart.

Happy 7 Month Birthday, Cole!

Oh, my sweet boy! What a big month you had! This month was filled with lots of "firsts" and also lots of fun!!
You learned to sit up all by yourself...

No pictures yet, but just this week your first tooth broke through (Bottom middle - right tooth). It won't be long and you'll be trying to eat all of our food! It's fun to see you growing and reaching all of these milestones like cutting teeth, but I'm a little sad because I know once your teeth come in you won't look like my little baby anymore!

You tried cereal for the first time! It only took a few bites for you to get used to it, then you were asking ("panting") for more!

Your first time in the Exersaucer...you love it! It was fun to see you being independent and having so much fun checking out all of the new toys!Your first time in the Jumparoo...every since we put you in the jumparoo...all you want to do is JUMP!!! You absolutely LOVE it! No more sitting still in our laps :(

It won't be too much longer before you are too big sit in the swing anymore...I wanted at least one more picture of you in it before you outgrow it! You still like the swing when you are relaxing, but you definitely prefer the exersaucer and jumparoo now!

We went to the zoo...(You slept most of the time so I snapped this picture of you with the elephants so we could remember!)

What's a trip to the zoo without a nice cool drink?? Just kidding!!!

We visited a couple of different pumpkin patches. We even found some Cole-sized pumpkins!

Of course I had to get some more pictures of you sitting up with our pumpkins at home!
You were the cutest little pumpkin for Halloween! You loved watching all of the children dressed up in their costumes! And of course you looked so cute with "Tinkerbell Sissy" and "Peter Pan Reid!" You did great for your first time Trick-or-Treating...just sat back in the stroller and relaxed and smiled at everyone!
And...we spent lots of time with our family! Everybody loves to love on Baby Cole!

Cole - you are such a precious addition to our family! You have the sweetest personality and just love to watch what everyone is doing (Especially Reid, Louisa and Roxy!). I love to hear your sweet voice when you get excited...you usually start by "whispering" but before too long you are babbling, "Da, da, da, da!" I love how you are starting to reach out for us to pick you up and no words can describe how I feel when you touch my face or hands with the soft, gentle touch of your hands. Cole, you are such a joy and we love you so much!
