Where did the last year go?

It is hard to believe that Cole is going to be one this coming Tuesday! This past year literally flew by.
We had Cole's first birthday party today! Our theme was ELMO! Cole officially loves Elmo. Michael cooked bbq brisket, pork, and baked beans. Our families helped to make the sides that accompanied the meal. We also had a cake and cupcakes. My family (and Gayle and Evelyn too) helped me to make Elmo cupcakes. They looked amazing. The looked so good that as soon as Cole say them he started saying Melmo (his version of Elmo)! It thought that was a good sign. The party went off without a hitch and Cole had a wonderful time. I'll post some pics at some point so everyone can see him and Melmo.

Hard to Believe

Cole with a very "familiar" Santa!
It's extremely hard for me to believe that my son is almost nine months old. It doesn't seem possible that he should be that old. He should still be a little baby. I now understand what parents mean when they say once you have kids that time flies by! I noticed this when I started teaching. I would watch how much the kids changed in the short time span that they were with me. Now I look at my own child and sit in amazement that he is this old! (I also had a moment the other day where I realized that my first class will be graduating from St. Gregory's in TWO years!)

I apologize for not updating the blog but hopefully you will all understand considering what life is like with a little one.

Cole has officially had his first ear infection.... in both ears... at the same time! The doctor said it is only a slight one but it has definitely affect his attitude and sleep. He wants to be held ALL the time, which is soooo not out little guys normal behavior. He has had several nights where sleep has eluded him after a couple hours. It doesn't help he has a head cold and he is struggling to keep his nose clean so he can breathe!
