Just Peachy!

My favorite spot to be at dinner time is right under Cole's seat. I get lots of yummy snacks that Jon and Emma don't let me have when I sit there. Anytime I hear that chair sliding out, I come running for a stake out at my favorite spot. Tonight Cole had his first experience with a whole was a peach and he didn't share any with me. He really enjoyed the peach- it was really juicy and messy! I think it made him feel like a big boy.

a pretty fun day

This last Saturday was one of Cole's best days. (That's what Jon and Emma have told me- they were out most of the day and left me at home- boo!) The day started with Emma and her mom taking Colton to the Farmer's Market in Waxhaw. They left early to beat the heat and walked around Waxhaw, got some fresh produce and flowers and then came home. Cole really liked walking around and seeing lots of people, especially the bread lady with the big floppy hat. Soon after they got home, they left again. They visited Lowe's to get some paint for Cole's big boy room and then headed to Babies R Us. They wanted to look at strollers and then leave, but ended up spending over an hour just looking around at clothes and toys. Cole had a blast playing with everything. All afternoon, he was so pleasant and loving that Jon and Emma came downstairs after they put him to bed and told me how much they loved him! There was nothing special or different really about today, but I guess there are days that you think about how blessed you are and are thankful!

Daddy's Shoes

I don't know what the big deal is about these things called "SHOES, " but Cole really likes them. One of his favorite things to do is to go outside and play (it's one of my favorite things too). He always has to find and put on his shoes before he goes outside. This Sunday while Jon was gone, he tried on his shoes. I don't think they fit him, but it looks like he had a fun time. Speaking of shoes, I'd like to mention my recent incident with socks. Just as much as Cole likes shoes, I LIKE SOCKS. I don't know what my fascination is with them, but if I see any laying around, I just can't help but chew and them. Jon and Emma think it's disgusting and quite a waste and that someday I'll learn my lesson. What I might have learned is that eating 2 pairs of socks in one day is not the best idea, as I've felt sick for the past few days. (Too much of a good thing...?)

Jenga & Cole

I would say that Cole and I are best friends. Everyday he chases me around with his lawnmower or crazy popper toy and I just run around the kitchen until we both get tired. I usually get tired first so I'll go and hide under the ottoman so he knows to stop. (I'm getting old! In dog years, I'm 28!) We fight sometimes when he hits me or pulls on my tail, but Emma usually breaks up the fight and gets us to be nice to each other. Sometimes I get in trouble though and have to go outside. This morning Cole and Emma brushed me really good because I'm shedding so much- I liked it. Cole likes to lay on me and will never pass up the opportunity to give me a hug or kiss. Sometimes Jon and Emma are jealous because he'll give kisses to me more than them. Last night it was really cute though...As Jon was going upstairs to brush Cole's teeth and put him to bed, he gave Emma a kiss through the stair spindles to say goodnight. He really looks forward to bedtime lately. Even though we're best friends, I'm glad to spend some time without him in the evening with Jon and Emma.

Playtime with Friends

Cole gets to go lots of places and have fun. A couple weeks ago, he went to his friend Maddie's house and they apparently had a blast playing with her sand & water table and then with the caterpillar crawling tube. (I think I would have had a lot of fun playing in that caterpillar too!) Just last week, He and Emma got to go to his buddy Cash's house and play with friends. It took him a while to warm up to the idea of leaving his mommy's side, but after he got comfortable, he ran around with all his friends!

Summer Heat!

Boy is it HOT outside lately! We haven't gone on many walks, but Cole and Emma get to go to the pool and cool off. Cole really likes the pool and tells me all about it when he gets home. (I'm not allowed to go...) His favorite thing is to splash the water.

Meet my Family!

Well here's my first blog entry. This is my family. I used to be the baby of the house and then this little guy Colton came along. This picture was taken in December. Cole, as I like to call him, is 17 months old now! I'm not quite sure, but something strange is going on and I think there might be another baby coming along soon. I've been trying to protect the house a little better to prepare for this. (i.e. Barking during naptime at anything that passes by our house) My mom and dad seem pretty excited about the new little one coming along. They keep talking about boy names and cribs and strollers. That's all I hear about these days!
