The other night Austin went to bed, and instead of going to sleep he worked on some adjectives to describe every member of our family. I thought it was cute. I'll start with Cole.

C Crazy
O Oversized
L Likable
E Extraordinary

Oh my gosh. I laughed so hard... especially on "oversized." He is right on though!

I'm pretty sure Cole is weighing in around the 35 lb mark. He was over 30 at his 18 month check in November. All our kids were chunks when they were little, but I think Cole might have them all beat. He really doesn't walk much when we're out. He runs. And fast!! He has the funniest little run too, everyone laughs as they see him coming. I think they're surprised a kid his size can run so fast. And if you have to carry him, you get a pretty good workout.

This poor child doesn't have many pictures taken of him. He loves being outside and kicking the soccer ball like big brother. He doesn't like going to games... especially during nap time. He constantly tries to run on the field and pitches a fit when you carry him off. Not embarrassing at all. He loves parks, especially ones with slides and swings.

He pretty much imitates anything his siblings do... like trying to do a headstand.

You would never know Cole is a 4th child. I think he thinks he's an only child. He gets completely jealous and upset if anyone is sitting next to me besides him. He'll cry, scream, kick... do whatever he can to move that person. Maybe that's where Austin got the "crazy" part. The other kids remind him that I love them too and he's not the only kid in our family... haha.

Cole loves baths! He can stay in there for a good hour and not get tired of it.

James, myself, and Cole went on a date the other night. Not much of a date when you have to bring an almost 2 year old, but the older kids had parents night out at our gym. So it was nice to go out to dinner which we rarely do. Cole was happy as long as he had an ice cube in his mouth.

Little man finally got all his crazy hair cut off last week. It looks cute here, but the second we got in the car he started messing with it. It looked like he had a mohawk by the time we got home. I still can't get it to lay flat on his head.

Austin summed it up quite nicely, we do think he is pretty extraordinary. :)
