Haircut!!
Cole's hair has been falling out like crazy all over his head except for the very top. The top was long and funny looking so we decided to give him a haircut. Matt trimmed the top so it is the length of the rest and it looks very cute!!
Tomorrow Cole is staying home and Grandma Score is coming over to watch him. My parents are out of town visiting a sick family member. When they were traveling yesterday Jayda got a really high fever. They gave her some tylenol and she seemed fine after. She was playing and all the sudden climbed up in my mom's lap and started having a seisure. They were all VERY scared. My aunt called 911 and they sent out an ambulance. She was taken to the doctor and they said that it was caused by her fever. Jayda just got 5 shots last week and has had a fever on and off sense then. The doctor just said that some people react that way to shots and get bad fevers worse than most. Jayda is one of them. They have her taking tylenol and motrin consistantly until they get home from Wisconsin on Tuesday and then she needs to see her regular doctor. We are hoping that the seisure was just from the high temp and nothing else. They will have to run tests to find out for sure. Pretty scary!
On a happier note- Cole has finally been on an eating schedule. He gets about 30 oz a day of formula and has baby food and cereal once a day. It is much easier now that he is on a schedule. I'm also happy that he is eating just 30 oz a day. He was taking almost 40 oz a day and it seemed like too much, so it is a relief that he is slowing down. He is growing like crazy though. He's wearing mostly 6-9 months clothes and a few things that are 12 months.
He's calling!! Gotta go!

4 day weekend!
Cole and I get to stay home together today and tomorrow. It is MEA at school this week so we have some time off. It is great getting to stay home with Cole again. I love it soooo much! Cole has been making some new noises today. They are cute little random squeals. All I have to do is look at him and he squeals. He's just too cute. He has become a pro in his exersaucer. He jumps around like crazy in it. He's still doing good on his baby food. He has cut out a whole bottle since we started him on it. That was what we were hoping would happen. He hasn't been pigging out as much now. For a little while I was getting concerned that he was over eating. I think he's doing pretty good now that we started the baby food. Tomorrow I'll try giving him some sweet potatos and see how that goes.

Sever's Corn Maze
Yesterday, we went to Sever's Corn Maze down in Shakopee. It was lots of fun. We watched the pig races, went on a hay ride, played in the corn pit, got lost in the maze, and watched Jakob and Jayda ride the ponies and play in the kid's maze. Oh yeah--we also ate lots of greasy food! Cole liked being out and about, as usual. He slept a lot of the time (which is funny because we were pushing him on very bumpy ground and it was quite noisy). However, once he was up, he loved it. He always likes being in public; he looks back and forth constantly watching the action. We got quite a few good pictures that I will post soon.

On Saturday, we gave him his first bites of baby food! Pears! Mmm... He did exceptionally well with them. He didn't quite know what to do with it at first, but he ate half the container. We decided to start giving him some baby food because he's turning into a fatty! We figure it will help fill him up without all the calories from the formula.

Overall, he's doing really well. He's still sleeping through the night and doesn't fuss much at all. Babies are easy!

sick day
I stayed home with Cole today because I'm sick. I didn't want to use a sick day already but I felt pretty crappy. My eye was swollen and I've been on and off with a cold for a couple weeks. I went to the doctor today and it is a sinus infection. The medicine they gave me is helping though.
It has been REALLY nice staying home with Cole today . I miss getting to be home with him during the day. He is just so fun. I can't wait for December :)
Cole has been eating 7 oz every 3 and a half hours lately. He's a piggy! People are always commenting on how big and strong he is for his age.
Oh pew.. gotta go change a diaper!

3 Months!
Cole is three months old today! It is strange, it seems like he has been here for much longer than three months. He is getting really strong now. He completely supports his own head, pushes up when you lay him on his stomach, and likes to stand and play in his exersaucer. His is amazingly verbal now. It seems like he babbles non-stop. Oh and of course, he's very cute. :)
