A Tribute to my Cole Lio Lio

Oh, he's a sweet one. Check out those chicken legs!!! Can you believe that?! At his 4 month appt. he was in the 99th percentile in height and a little over 50th in weight. My long, skinny boy. Cole is such a good natured baby. He cries when he's hungry or tired. That's it. He's so patient with me. His little laugh is usually this fantastic sucking in sound as he bobs his head, unless he really gets laughing, which only his sister can get him to do so far. He's got this great boy hairline and a lighter color is starting to grow in. So far it looks like this kid is going to keep his blue eyes. I can see his father in him, my Grandpa Jack, and especially the resemblance to his sister. He's a thumb sucker, and when given the chance, he's a toe sucker too. Those long skinny legs make it easy to get the toes to the mouth. :)


I love love love it when he stares at me and "talks". When he does this, he usually is reaching up and touching my face. Consider the heart melted at that point.
He is so quick to smile. There is a big mirror hung right above the changing table. It doesn't matter what mood this kid is in, if you hold him up to the mirror, he will smile. Usually a laugh follows.
He is finding his voice. He "sang" all through church today. Either he was doing that or calling for dolphins.
Cole has some strong legs. I stand by this post. Maybe he'll swim or play soccer too. When he gets to kicking in his bouncer, that thing looks ready to take off.
His drool is well timed. If you hold him up in the air, you are almost gauranteed a slobber drop in the face.
Cole adores his big sister. He is perfectly happy to lay by her while she plays with toys because that means he gets to be with her and watch. He thinks she's hilarious. He doesn't mind all the affection she pours on him. Tessa always says, "Oh, he's so cute." I concur.

How sweet. Tiny Toes always wants me to turn around in church and look at "Tessa's cute little brother."

Too cute-he is going to be a tall boy! I think he is starting to show his resemblance to his mom, especially in the close up pictures. I can't wait for our little men to meet, I think they will be fast friends.

What a doll - jumping around already?! Boy, you're in for it!

Yes he is such a sweet boy. He's a little string beany blue eyed boy. Grandpa Jack would say "he's a dandy!" And Cole is right, Tessa IS hilarious!
