18 Month Check Up

It is amazing how quickly Cole went from this...
...to this... I remember when Cole was born with Jaundice and he had to stay in that awful bili-bed all day, every day for the first week of his life and all I wanted was just wanted to hold him and it was so hard to not be able to. I find myself feeling the same way these days, only he isn't stuck in a bed, he is running all over the house and he just has so much to do that he doesn't have time to sit and let me hold him...He had his 18 month check up today and at the end we scheduled his 2 year check up... 2 years?  Is he really that close to being 2?  It's hard to believe... He isn't getting any smaller, that is certain.  He weighed in at 27 lbs and is 35 inches tall... 
Last night, Cole came running towards me with a piece of paper and a marker... I am glad he brought it to me and didn't take matters into his own hands.  I sat him at his desk and this is what he created... (I helped him with the name part:)  I just thought I would add it to my blog, because I want to remember little things like this forever...

Wow, he can't be that old already! But I also feel like I can't believe Bob and I have been married for two years. I still remember you be pregnant at our wedding. Seems like just yesterday!
