All I have heard from Cole today is "Jessa Jessa" as he shakes his little finger at me. He also says it when he cries and wants me to pick him up. I'm REALLY trying to get him to say Mommy. So far, not working. I'm sure this is due to him spending 5 days a week with Makia and John.

Those darn teeth!
We think Cole is getting another tooth. He's been really tricky to get to sleep all weekend. He started with some crazy sleep at my parents' house on Saturday. That night we tried putting him in the crib and he threw a fit and couldn't breath because he was crying so hard. He FINALLY fell asleep on me at 10:00 and my mom put him in the crib at 10:30. He slept til 4:45am but that was it! Then he slept pretty much all day yesterday, and now has had a screwy schedule today. He wouldn't go to sleep tonight and threw a fit in his crib for about 20 minutes. Finally we gave in and took him out and he played for a little longer and then fell asleep on Daddy. Poor little guy. I can see a white line on his gums so I'm sure the next tooth is pushing up. I'll let ya know if it pops through.

Cole stinks!
Just thought I'd update and let you know that Cole is in his pooping corner and WHEW! Stinkin up the whole place. He is so funny. He ALWAYS goes and sits behind the rocking chair to poop. Seems kinda young to be doing that, but he for sure does. We always know what he's up to when he goes and sits back there.

Good news for sure!
Tonight we decided to give Cole 1 oz of cow's milk with his formula and he didn't puke!!! We are sooo excited. Maybe now we can start feeding him foods with milk and cheese in it which will make life so much easier. He's getting sick of his non-dairy diet. There are so few foods that we can make him, so he's really bored with it. Tomorrow I'll give him 2 oz of cows milk and see how it goes. We'll gradually build up to fully cows milk around the time he's a year old.

Maybe good news??
I decided to give Cole a little macaroni and cheese tonight to see if he is still intolerant of milk.. That was at about 5 and it is 7 and still no throwing up! He didn't have much- but it is still better than before (not being able to have a drop of milk). We're hoping he gets to 8 with no puking, then we'll know he's over it. :)

Cole's been walking more than crawling the past couple days. Today he has really amazed me with it. I think he realized how much easier it is to walk than crawl.
I've been feeling baby #2 move a lot more lately. I usually feel it a couple times a day now.
Gotta go- Cole's gettin into trouble!

Yay Cole
Yup, his fever is still gone! I think he's finally over this! I hope at least. He woke up this morning without a fever. The first in 4 days! :)

Sick again..
Cole has had a fever for the last three days. It seems like it finally went away tonight, but we will see how he is when he wakes up in the morning. Matt took him to the doctor today and she said that it is either a virus or just from teething. Most likely a virus though. I will probably play it safe and not bring him tomorrow on my planned lunch with some old friends. I'm sure they'll be sad that he didn't come, but I'd hate to get more people sick. One of them has a baby that is about 2 months old, so he really shouldn't be around him.
Grandma Score came over today and babysat while we went to see Shrek 3. :) We liked it, and Cole always likes spending time with his grandmas. He is really crazy about both of them. Just a couple days ago he smacked my hand when I tried taking him out of Grandma Case's arms. I'll try to remember to update again when his fever is finally gone!!

Walkin Man gets even better!
He just took 17 steps!! He walked all the way across the living room (the long way). Very cool!! He was practicing walking back and forth between Matt and I.

Ummm.. so Cole just opened the cabinet, found some pesto sauce, and poured it all over himself, the floor, the cabinet.... all over! This all happend in about 30 seconds while I was standing NEXT to him cleaning up lunch.. Pesto is not easy to clean up. Luckily he was still just wearing only a diaper from playing in the water table earlier.
I also had to go out in the garage and get their baby gate and put it at the bottom of the stairs. He is SUCH a little trouble maker today!

Anyway, just wanted to tell you about your sweet little boy and what a fun day I'm having with him!

Walkin Man
Cole can walk! He's been taking steps for a while, but yesterday he started getting brave and walking away on his own. He took like 8 steps away from the couch so we're pretty excited. He sure does seem to do everything earlier than expected! He still crawls most of the time, but every now and then he decides to walk. He's very proud of himself. :)
He also has another cold. He woke up yesterday with a runny nose. We are hoping he didn't get his great grandparents sick- we visited them on Sunday.

All better
Cole seems to be perfectly healthy now. He's been taking a few steps at a time. We've seen him take up to 4 steps in one try! He says new words everyday it seems. His big thing right now is "all done." He also says "Kia" which is for Makia- the little girl I take care of, and today, I'm sure I heard him say John a couple times. He spends most of his week with them, so it doesn't surprise me.
His FAVORITE thing to do right now is to point at you and say "no". He randomly does it, but every now and then he does it when he doesn't like something. Makia is constantly messing with him and he does it to her a lot. It is pretty funny. He sticks up for himself already!!
Cole spends the night with Grandma and Grandpa Case tonight. We get the night/morning off!!
