January 2010 – 18 Months

Saturday, February 13th, 2010 by Mom

January was a very busy month.  Cole turned 18 months and is already starting to show signs of the terrible twos.  He he.  No not really.  He’s just really curious.

Like I posted in Grace’s blog we spent a lot of January celebrating birthdays.  Cole was more than happy to hang out and eat cake and play with balloons, which he calls ball, but close enough.

Cole was brave enough to bounce around at the jumpers at Pump It Up too.

But the eating the birthday cake part was definitely his all time favorite thing to do. And boy did he get to have a lot of cake last month. Bad Mommy.

When we took Grace to play miniature golf with Ava I was concerned about how Cole would do. You see, he likes to wander a bit. But he did great. He liked to pick up the ball and put it into the hole himself.

Did somebody say birthday? Cole was first to sit in his chair to eat ice cream sundaes for Ava’s birthday.

At the Clubhouse for Ava’s party, I knew Cole would have a great time there too. It’s a perfect spot for older kids and kids his age. Cole is also obsessed with air hockey like Grace so he begged Daddy to play with him.

Cole spent a great deal of time playing with the choo choo trains too.

Now that he’s older, Cole is enjoying time in the swing. He likes to say “wee wee” while swinging.

Bath time is fun as ever as Cole loves to play with the bubbles. Guess which one is the stinker who likes to splash water all over the place?

He’s also getting into building forts. Lucky for him he has a big sister who is a pro at building them.

Vroom Vroom

Sunday, February 7th, 2010 by Mom

As we all know Cole is afraid of loud noises like the weekly trash truck, motorcycles, and apparently mini ATVs. For Christmas Yaya and Papa got Cole a super cool ATV for ride around.

It was love at first sight for Cole.  He loves loves loves ride-em toys.

He was ready for some serious cruisin’.

But unfortunately, that love turned to fear once the battery was all charged up and started to make vroom vroom sounds. It was all over. Now, Cole prefers to just push it around himself.

For now, Cole is content with little trucks he can play in the sand with. He likes to make the vroom vroom sound himself too.
