Cole can crawl!!!
He is finally crawling!! It takes a little motivation but he can do it! I noticed this morning and now he's been crawling for Daddy too. :)

Tight Pants :(
With Cole, I really didn't notice my pants getting tight for a little while after I found out I was pregnant. This time is another story. I put on some jeans today (which a month ago were falling off of me) and they were tight. It is a little sad, but worth it in the end. I'm just surprised with how fast it is happening..
So far this pregnancy is really easy. I am way less sick than I was with Cole, so that is good. I already have a better attitude about it than I did with Cole. The only problem this time- I'm constantly hungry. I'm trying to eat healthier foods when I'm hungry, but it is very difficult at times.
Hopefully I don't gain too much weight this time. I'm just hoping I can do as good as I did the first time with it. I guess we'll see!

We had a sad weekend without Cole. We dropped him off on Friday at my parent's house so we could get started on putting in laminate floors in our entryway, kitchen, and dining room. We thought we'd be done Saturday night, but we were sadly mistaken. Night rolled around and we were barely anywhere on the floors. We had to leave Cole there and get him on Sunday. Then most of Sunday past with most of the work done, but still a mess all over the house. Finally around 7pm I just left to go get him even though the house wasn't quite ready. I couldn't take being away from him anymore. Friday through Sunday is too much time away from my baby. We're so happy to have him back!! We have most of the house cleaned up now too and the floors are done! They turned out great in the end.

Cole is pretty vocal lately. He says "da da" non-stop in this weird high pitched voice. It is really cute! I'm hoping to catch it on tape. Other than that, he says "ba ba" when he wants a bottle.

He still loves his bath. He likes to "swim" in the tub and drink the dirty water. He is quite the dare-devil in the water, so we are really looking forward to taking him swimming this summer. He immediately lays down when he gets in there. Then he rolls over and lays back getting pretty much his whole face under the water. He pops up with a smile so we let him do it. I figure it is good for him to get use to water now so he isn't afraid of it later in life. We just watch him closely- so don't worry! He also tries to stand up in the tub. He pulls himself up and sometimes stands but usually gets into a weird position and then falls.

He's getting to be so much fun!

Cole can scoot!
Cole has been scooting forward this morning! We noticed it once yesterday and now quite a bit today. No matter where I put him, he ends up at the stereo and cable box which is conveniently located on the bottom shelf of their entertainment center.. (I'm nannying right now). Now the trouble starts!

You may have already heard....
I'm pregnant!! We found out over the weekend and have slowly been telling people. The baby is due October 25th.
Poor Cole having to share his attention so soon..

Look what Cole can do!

Today we started helping Cole stand next to the couch. After just a little bit of practice, he can now stand holding on to something all by himself!
He also started saying "dada" today. :)

Good News
The appointment went well. The doctor said that this is probably a dairy intolerance and not an allergy. If it was an allergy he'd had hives but this is just vomiting. She said that most babies outgrow this by the time they are a year old and at that time, we can try to give him milk again. Until then, we have to avoid all food with milk in it. Cole also got the 2nd part of his flu shot and he didn't even cry!!!

7 Months Old!!
As of today, Cole is 7 months old. It is hard to believe!! The past 7 months have gone by SO fast. Cole has a doctors appointment this afternoon about his dairy allergy. Hopefully we'll find out what is going on and what he's allergic to.
Other exciting news- as of yesterday, I lost all of my pregnancy weight!!!!! I am down 2 pounds from before I got pregnant. :) That is a great feeling. I'm continuing with Weight Watchers so I can lose even more weight before the next pregnancy.
In sad news, we had to put one of Cole's first pets to sleep last night. Our cat, Shannon, had some health problems that got to be too much. :(
I'll update more after Cole's appointment today.
