I Am Glad He Is Here

I cannot believe Cole has already been with me for 2 years!  Labor was a nightmare, as is evidenced by my appearance, but I love this picture, because it is of the first time I held him and I love the look in his little eyes...
When Cole turned 1, I thought he seemed so huge, but now looking back he seems so small... 
Maybe that is because of how much he has grown in the last year... It seems like Cole has wanted to be 2 for quite some time and he is already almost too big for his size 2t clothes.  Two years has flown by, but at the same time it is weird to think that I ever had a life without Cole.  Sometimes I look back at the years before I had him and it seems strange to me that I didn't miss him then.  I love my little guy...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLE!!! I can't believe how big he is getting! Wow! (I am also glad you posted!) Give him a birthday hug from us. Or better yet, since he is a big boy and boys don't hug when they are that old, give him a high five or something ;)

Happy Birthday Cole! Yes, it is hard to believe that he hasn't always been with us. He is such a cutie! The post is great and Cole is lucky to have such an amazing mom!

Love you,
Mom

I know, I know, I totally think "what was I doing with my life before Livs came along".
Happy Birthday to Cole! He is so big and is definitely looking like a Gilson in that pic of him on his rocking horse.

Happy birthday, Cole! I can't believe how big he has gotten, and I've only seen pictures! And I know what you mean - I don't know what I ever did before I had Jaden, and now Carson.
