Strange baby...
One of Cole's favorite things to do is try to pick off Matt's nipples. It is really funny to watch. Not so fun for Matt though.
I'm a little worried that he has an ear infection. He's been picking at his ears like crazy today and is just really crabby. He does that when he is tired, so that might be all it is. We're gonna wait and see how he is in the morning and if he's still picking at them, we'll take him to the doctor. He seems to be most of the way over his cold.

I had a doctor's apt last Friday and everything is good so far. I'll be having an ultrasound on June 4th and we'll hopefully find out the sex of the baby on that day. :)

Still sick
Cole is doing pretty good even though he has a bad cold. He is happy most of the time but is especially unhappy when we try to wipe his nose. He woke up this morning just crusted with snot and really not feeling well. I feel so bad for him!! I ended up getting his cold of course. Matt feels like he's getting it too so we'll be having a fun sick weekend. You know, I never realized how valuable nasal aspirators (a.k.a. snot suckers) are until today.. Haha.

Poor Cole
Cole has his first bad cold. He's had sniffles in the past, but nothing major. Today he woke up with a really runny nose, a cough, and a very grumpy attitude. It's been a trick getting him to drink fluids. Matt figured out that it was because he can't breath, so without a valve on the sippy cup, he drinks! Yay.

He started clapping his hands today. I've been trying to teach him to clap his hands for about 2 months with no luck. Well today he was watching his one and only tv show, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and Mickey said "Clap with us." That was all it took. He started clapping his hands and has been doing it all day since then. I guess tv IS educational. :)

Other than that, Cole is off the bottle! He takes his formula out of sippy cups now, so we are done with bottles! He seems fine with it.
Time for dinner! Bye

Cole's first Easter
Cole had a very good first Easter. Saturday we went to Grandma and Grandpa Case's and decorated eggs and went out to eat at my favorite- Outback. Cole likes it too :). Later that night Jared and Anne came over and visited. Cole does great with them. He acts like he sees them all the time and is very comfortable with them. Sunday we skipped out on church so that Cole could take his usual nap and not be crabby later at Grandma Score's. We went over there for an Easter lunch and Cole had lots of fun with all the extra attention. He wouldn't take a nap over there at all so we had to leave a little early in order to keep the peace. He ended up falling asleep before we turned the corner in the car and he slept for a couple hours. After that, we just relaxed at home and enjoyed the last few hours of our vacation.
Now, we are back to work and back to our everyday routines.

Smarty Pants
Cole has been saying sooo many new words lately. The past couple days he has been saying "Bopper". He also makes a sign language sign for eat. He imitates pretty much everything we do. Yesterday we were pointing at something and he copied. He points with his whole hand, but he manages! It is a really fun thing to see him copy us.
Also, he just pooped and I said "Eww, stinky! Let's change your diaper!" and he started pulling on his diaper. He is growing up. ;)

Cole's such a good baby!
Lately, Cole has been extremely easy to take care of. I'm off this week and so far it has been sooo easy. He just crawls around playing on his own. He barely cries at all. I've been doing my own thing and getting stuff done and he just keeps playing. I love it. Maybe I'll get a little scrapbooking in if this continues. :)
The most amazing part of this is that he's getting his second tooth. He doesn't seem bothered by it at all. He has been sleeping through the night still and taking (better than normal) 2 hour naps twice a day. In fact, he fell asleep playing today. He found his nuk and his silky, laid on the floor, and went to sleep. I snapped a few pics before moving him to his bed.

What a big boy!
I just noticed that Cole has another tooth poking through. Now he has his two bottom front teeth. :)

Here is a picture of Cole's first trip to the park.
