Cole...
It was so fun to sort through all of the pictures of you from the past 365 days. You have changed so much in that time! You have also changed our family in such a good way in that time! Your brothers and sisters were in love with you before you were even born. They couldn't wait to meet you! They sure do spoil you rotten! Maybe that is why you refuse to talk and walk! You have been the easiest, most laid back baby, since day 1! You are such a blessing in our home! I just don't know what we would do without you. Like in the morning when it is time to pull you out of your crib. We love the huge smile you flash at us and you love all the hugs and kisses you get. Or at bedtime, when everyone has to get their turn to kiss and hug you and tell you to sleep good. Or what about the way you try to mock the kids when they yell at Max. Or when you throw your sippy cup off your high chair tray and smirk when we put it back on for you. Or when you poop in the bath once or twice a week. (OK maybe not that one) Or when you clap for Luke and Riley during their soccer games. Or when you knock on the wall from your crib calling for us. Or how you get so excited when you see a ball. Your arms and hands go crazy! Or the way you try to put on every ones glasses or goggles and then give the cheesiest grin ever. Or how you flirt with any girl or woman, even relatives! Most of all, what would I do without the snuggles you give me? Or the way you hang on my legs when I am trying to cook dinner or clean the kitchen? What I am trying to say, Cole, is that we LOVE you so much!! You are one special little boy!!! Happy Birthday Coco man!
