Friday night I got to go out on a date with my favorite person... it was the first "baby-sitter" date we have ever been on. It was weird, but relaxing to be out and about with just the two of us... I am so in love with him...
Last Saturday, we went to the Seattle Children's Museum... It was so much fun. I am pretty sure that Sean and I enjoyed ourselves just about as much as Cole did. This is Cole right outside of the museum looking around at Seattle Center... I think he loved seeing all the open space.
While inside the museum, Cole acted like he owned the place... I love the confidence he has. He just strolled from display to display like he had been there a million times before.
The Goldilocks room was my favorite, but maybe that is because I am a sucker for fairy tales... I kept trying to get Cole to sit in these chairs, but he apparently wasn't as impressed with them as I was:)
The jungle was Cole's favorite display... we walked through these "vines" over and over again... there is nothing better than watching him have a good time. We have been meaning to take him to that museum forever, so I am glad we finally got around to it and we will definitely return many times in the years to come:)
Cole's bedroom door stayed shut until almost 10 this morning... and that is after he went to bed at just after 7 last night... he must be growing again! It was nice to be able to get a lot done this morning before he even woke up.
This afternoon I made these iced pumpkin cookies... they are SO delicious...
... they even inspired Cole to say a new word... "Cookie." Hearing his sweet little voice utter words just warms my heart.
...but here is Cole in his Halloween costume. He was smiling just a few moments before this picture was taken, but he was mad that we weren't giving him the camera. He can be so fragile at times:)
Here he is today, looking pretty pleased with himself for being so good for me while we were in Target... I wonder sometimes if he thinks that store is his second home... we spend way too much time there.
Isn't it cute? I love that it looks like a barn... I miss having a Super Target, but at least this one is fun to look at.
While we were there, I bought Cole a few Hot Wheels. (Thanks for the suggestion Dana.) He loves them! The look of concentration on his face while he watches it go down the "ramp," is the best part.
I love daylight savings! I have always considered myself to be a morning person, but lately I have just not been with it... But thanks to the change in time, I was able to go to sleep early last night and I have been up since 3 a.m. and I am loving it. It's crazy how much easier it is to get things done without an almost-two-year-old pulling me all over the place. Hopefully, getting up insanely early this morning will help me to get to sleep early tonight and I will get back to my old schedule and have a few hours to myself in the morning, every morning.
