Cole at Two

Aw, sweet little Cole. He turned two in May so I got right on it to photograph his milestones. Errrch. Not. It finally occurred to me the other day that we’d never done it, so here we are. He’s only gotten cuter these past few months, talks more, rides his scooter faster (thus the scuffed up knee), and smiles bigger. His biggest fan is still his playful momma. Who do you think he’s looking at in almost every picture with that adoring look? Yep, his momma. Don’t get me wrong, he loves his daddy, Mo-Mo (Simone), and Ninny (Sydney) too, but he looooves his momma. One of my favorite things about Cole is his excitement. If you ask him which cup he wants to drink out of, his eyes look back and forth, back and forth, while saying “I-I-I-I-I (about a dozen more I’s) before he finally gives his answer … “I want the boo one” … which is in fact, might actually be blue. He’s so smart. 🙂 When he counts he says “8-9-10” never starting at 1-2-3, and he says “uh huh” to almost everything … until recently when he said “eeww” at something we had for dinner. He is now potty training and doing really well in his big boy pants and Megan’s most favorite words these days are “do you have to go potty?” Oh the memories. He really is a sharp little cookie, but then what gramma doesn’t say that about her last, but never least g-babe. Love XXO

Oh he’s just a doll. You captured his sweet personality perfectly and described him to a T. Thanks for always making sure he can’t use “I’m the THIRD child” card…at least with grammas camera. Love you!

Oh so sweet! Love the smile, love the eyes, particularly love the pic with his hands in his pockets. That expression says it all. Sweet boy! Congrats Mom and Dad. Happy 2 yrs plus Cole! Great job on the pics Grandma!

Beautiful beautiful little boy! He reminds me of our Casey when he was that age…so blonde with bright blue eyes! You did a great job Mary! He is so adorable 🙂

Thank you for capturing my replacement in such an amazing way! I keep telling Megan that if I die at least she now has Cole to take care of her. When I use to say that with the girls she’d say “stop that”. Now she just says “you’re right!”. ;o) You do great work Mary!

Thank you Gloria and Cody for the sweet comments on this little guy. Cody, I could see where you would think of Casey with the blonde hair and blue eyes. And Robby, you say it like it is. Ha! So do you Megan. You are both raising a sweet loving and fun loving boy.

I can not believe how he has changed. Wow Great job Mary. My favorite ones are the ones with his beautiful momma. Can’t help but smile while looking at that adorable face.

He sure is a cutie with tons of personality! You can almost read his thoughts in his expressions.

Thank you Vickie and Linda. He is a fun one for sure … but then all my g-babes are. Lucky gramma over here.

Lora Lee, I missed this earlier and it’s so nice hearing from you! Wish you were closer to see each other more than every year or two. I’ll write an email soon. Love you.

A tired mama with a headache should not look at her baby boy at bedtime while listening to slow Sam Smith music. That has blubbering Kleenex mess written all over it.
