An Assortment of Cole-isms

I know you're ready for it--a post that has nothing to do with my job search. As thankful as I am that you're interested (and I wouldn't blame you if you weren't interested anymore), I'm sick of talking about it. So, I thought I'd lighten the mood by sharing with you just how funny my child is these days.

The boy loves "buggies." He loves to look at them, watch them crawl on his hands, carry them to the toilet to flush them, and use his legs to make tunnels for them. When he does this he says, "Tunnel!" In this picture he's discovered bees.

Yes, he's still a paci boy, and I'm not fighting it. He'll only be a baby for a little longer. Maybe I'll start battling that at two, but we've still got two more months until then (sniff, sniff) and I'm going to let him be a baby until then. The last few nights he's wanted to wash his paci before bedtime so that it will squeak when he sucks on it. If it isn't squeaking, he's not satisfied.

This boy loves to play ball. He loves every part of it--the throwing ("Mom, catch!"), the batting ("Hey, batter, batter...swing!"), the running ("Running!"), and the watching. When he sees baseball on t.v., no matter who's playing, he says, "Cubs!" If you ask, "Cole. Who plays baseball?" He'll first say, "Daddy," then "Cubs!"

He prefers his green beans straight out of the can these days. (I know, my mom and others of you are cringing. "He'll cut his hands!") This is the way he likes them though. Cracks me up. Tonight he dumped the juice all down his shirt.

You just can't help but love this boy!

I am so happy to see that Mr. Cole still loves his paci. I think Zoe will be taking hers to college! I agree, they are only babies once. So I say, let that paci squeak all day and night if it makes him happy.
I can't believe he's almost 2. Where did the time go?

Love the pics of Cole. Garrett still has his paci too. Couldn't agree more. I loved catching bees when I was little. Allison has developed a recent HUGE fear of bugs. She held her hand over her eyes all the way to church Sunday because a fly got in the car.

Love the squeaky paci!! That cracks me up. Jack also likes to try to catch bees...I guess he'll learn soon enough that it's not a good idea, because he will NOT just take his mama's word for it. Your Cole-isms are great!!

Cute! Let him have his passie. Before you know it, he'll be dating and driving! They grow up too fast.
