Cole has been a joy to watch grow up. He has a strong personality and is a natural leader. He's funny, carefree, adventurous, agile, strong, sensitive, curious, smart, cute, and confident. He learns things quickly and is a natural athlete. He's also very comfortable with himself. He knows that he's small for his age, but it doesn't affect him. He's also been keeping his hair on the long-side for the last couple of years, and is frequently called a girl by those not paying attention, but he doesn't let it bother him. We call him a monkey because he can climb anything practically. He is also a great snuggler and loves to have fun. We have enjoyed these eight years of having him in our lives and look forward to watching him continue to grow and develop.
Here's a look at Cole through the years:
|Baby Cole at the Hospital|
(I don't think hospital photos are meant to be flattering.)
|Cole at 3 months, with very red hair.|
(Reminiscent of Conan O'Brien or Donald Trump? lol)
|Cole at 1 year old - now a blondie.|
Where did the red hair go?
|Cole at 2 years old - doing his two favorite things:|
Sucking on his fingers, and holding his blankie (which he called an Ah-ja).
|Cole at 3 years old - already our little Monkey!|
|Cole at 4 years old - with his brothers.|
Gotta love that cheesy smile :)
|Cole at 5 years old - It's fun to play dress-up.|
|Cole at 6 years old - The beginning of the long hair stage.|
|Cole at 7 years old - loving having long hair|
|Cole is 8 years old today!|
And he has yet another hair style - still keeping some length.
