Photo Session

Cole is doing well. He eats, sleeps, and grows. That agenda keeps him pretty busy so we just keep a very low profile and enjoy each day. Unfortunately that leaves the blog subjects pretty boring so I will just post his most recent pics and promise some more interesting reading as we get closer to the holidays!

Election Day

Cole participated in his first election today. Even though he missed a lot of the campaign, the primaries and most of the debates he still wanted to vote! So here he is after his first voting experience outside the Rosemeade Community Center. As you can tell he was totally worn out (big yawn) by the outing!

Gigi and Pops

Gigi and Pops (aka LaTonia and Marvin) have been visiting Cole this week. We have had a great time just playing and enjoying the wonderful weather. Cole has been sufficiently "spoiled" by his grandparents and Cory and I have really enjoyed the help (especially Gigi's cooking - she made Cory's two favorite meals while she was here which he loved!). So they head back to Kansas tomorrow morning - we will miss them and have promised lots of pictures! And speaking of pictures - you knew I had to post a few of the visit. These are pics of Cole with his grandparents modeling various gifts that they brought with them.
Lauri Austin sent a beautiful fleece baby blanket several months ago when she heard the news that LaTonia was going to be a grandma. It is really soft and is in the first pic below. Pat Matthews gave LaTonia a Nebraska bib and doll since she knew he'd have plenty of OU gear. Pops said he started crying the minute we put that bib on him and stopped as soon as we took it off. Made for great pics after this weekend's game - sorry Pat! Then Paula sent a huge bag of clothes, burp cloths and a custom OU blanket just for Cole. We took a picture of Cory in the OU blanket that Paula made for him, holding Cole in the OU blanket that Paula made just for him. Paula, please note that Cory snuggles under that blanket on the couch every night while he watches TVand I'm sure Cole's will get just as much or more use!
So thank everyone for the wonderful gifts and thanks to Pops and Gigi for their love and support!
