Cole started walking on Wednesday! We are so excited. Of course, he is a bit tentative right now. He will walk about 4 or 5 feet and then resort to crawling. But, he loves walking and smiles when he does it. I think he learned because of the very cute walker we have on loan from the Rushes (thanks!) and the fact that he moved up to the big kid class where many kids walk around him every day.
I'll post a video soon (but of course, I can't find where Brad saved it on the computer so I can't upload it now). But, I wanted to do a quick post so I remember when the walking started (at just over ten months)...
And, while I'm here...basically, it's the best day ever. Congrats to Ernie, Ashley, Trace and baby Fisher (born today weighing in at 9 pound, 1.3 ounces) and Jon, Erin and baby Grady (born today weighing in at 7 pounds 11 ounces). Two babies in one day! What could be better?
In the past month, we've had a lot of fun! Cole is now ten months old and he's so so close to walking. He moved up to the one-year-old class at daycare. Big boy. Recently, his favorite thing to do is clap...which is precious. Over Mardi Gras, we went to Fausse Point with family and great friends. Gammy and Pop bought Cole a wagon...which he loves! He also liked the cake pops and all the other little kids. Here are some recent pictures. Thanks Krista!
If you're reading this, you probably know us already! Brad and I were married in 2007 and have the most awesome baby boy named Cole. As much as I will try to blog about all sorts of topics, Cole will undoubtedly be the focus. He was born on April 28, 2009 at 4:09 a.m. after 26 hours of labor. He weighed 6 pounds 8 ounces and was 20 inches long. We thought he would never arrive! When he did, we realized he was totally worth the wait.
While Cole is amazing, we also have some of the best friends and family ever! In all honesty, I can't imagine raising a child without them!
I've been reluctant to start a blog because I don't really like to write or journal. I write every day at work and that's enough for me! However, once I realized that Cole would be able to print all of this out one day and read about his life, I knew I could resist no longer. Also, I'm counting on my friends and family to be gracious when I only blog/post once every few months :)
