I just love my boys...

To be honest I don't know what I would do without my boys. Daniel is seriously my rock, he keeps me sane. We're having really bad luck finding an apartment, it's stressing me out hardcore, but Daniel always makes me see the brighter side of the situation which is good because I tend to over react. And he does so much for us, he literally works ALL the time, he barely gets to see Cole. That makes me really sad, because Cole needs his daddy! I've also come to realize that he gets bored of me! Me and Cole are together 24/7 (Literally, No Joke) And I've realized that recently he gets fussy around me for no reason, at all. And then once my dad or someone else comes in the room he's all smiles and giggles. And I mean its understandable I can't keep him amused 24/7 (No, really) so that makes everything quite hard. It's gotten worse with Daniels working all the time too, the past two weekends he's worked a total of 37 hours!!! I mean 37 hours in the span of 3 days is a little crazy, no?

Cole loves his bath time!! It's awesome! He gets a bath every Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights before bed, which I know seems like a lot, but he just enjoys it so much that I like letting him chill in the water. When he was a newborn and we tried using this tub thing we had it was really difficult because he couldn't hold his head up on his own so it took, Daniel holding his head up the entire time while I washed him, it was a huge ordeal, so we just decided to not use it anymore and we used one of those mesh support things and he was fine with it. But I remembered we had it and totally wanted to try it out now because he's awesome at holding his head up now, and ta-daa he LOVES it! He splashes us and smiles and just really enjoys it, its very cute.

He also went through a little faze a few weeks ago of cooing a gurgling ALL the time, like constantly. And then he stopped completely and barely made noises. But now he's starting again and doing it all the time, it's really funny!! His face gets all concentrated and you can tell he's workin' real hard on getting out the sounds!

I tried adding pictures but it wouldn't work, stupid blogger. Sorry!

Something new everyday

First off Daniel got a tattoo for Cole yesterday, it's pretty cool. Here's a picture.

It's a tiger with "Bruiser" underneath. I thing the tattoo artist did an awesome job, you can't really tell the detail in my shitty webcam picture but its really original, you don't see many tattoos with this style as well. It has a stencil look to it almost, it's pretty awesome.

Cole's at such a weird age right now, he's in the "inbetween" of being a newborn baby and being a baby who can play with toys and laugh and stuff. Today he made a breakthrough...

Daniel finally got him to grab onto one of his toys! I know it wasn't an accidentental grab like hes done before either, because when his little fingers weren't clasped around the link properly he made a point to re arrange his fingers to hold on to it properly. Followed by him shoving the toy in his mouth, which didn't surprise me because his hands are always in his mouth and I have no doubt that anything he grabs from here on out will be going straight in his mouth as well.

Cole has also done the "almost" laugh squeal for me a few times but Daniels never heard it, but today he did! It's the best thing in the world and I cannot wait until he is full on laughing. It just makes my heart melt.

I've decided I want to do something for Daniel for his birthday, which is on September 27th. Something other than presents which of course I'm doing anyways. So I've decided to plan a smallish get together for him the day before (For friends of his who would want to come I've made a private facebook event about it but may have forgotten some people so let me know if you want to come). It's just going to be something relaxed, not like my old parties, obviously, this one will consist of conversation, beers, bbq, and babies. It's also Cole's four months so it'll be good for the friends who haven't met him yet too finally do so. I'm making an awesome cake, and there will be good food, and good beer, as well as good company. I'm excited for it, hopefully everything works out.

Me and Cole went grocery shopping today, which is always hard for me to do on my own because, I don't have a car, can't use a cart, etc etc the list goes on and on. I have to juggle a basket which ususally means I can't grab as much stuff as needed. I also just hate grocery shopping in general. I can't meal plan so when I go shopping I just grab random stuff, like the stuff I got today consists of, Bacon, Bread, Tortillas, Diapers, Banana Nut Cheerios (mmm my fav right now) 2 Boxes of Skinny Cows, Mustard and Honey...okay the last two are for a chicken dish I'm making tonight so not so random, but EVERYTHING else = random. Oh well.

Trying to post more :)

Here's what Cole looked like today! :) My Baby.

Last Summer Hurrah

I'm up at a family friends cottage right now. On beautiful Lake Muskoka. I've been coming up here since I was about 5 years old, and I'm truly pleased that Cole gets to experience it as well. He may not realize now, but by next summer he'll have a blast I'm sure. For now it's just relaxing on the dock or open porch breathing in the fresh country air while my little monkey sleeps peacefully in my arms.

Cole has been great up here. He slept through the night the first night, and only woke up once last night (which really was 5:30 this morning). It's a little tougher for me because Cole's daddy couldn't make it up for the trip, but I'm enjoying the "just me and him" bonding time.

It's hard to believe this summer is over. It feels like just yesterday that I would skip ahead on my calender in my phone to the beginning of September thinking that this thing growing in my belly would be 3 months old and the weather would be getting colder again. To be completely honest I'm not dreading winter this year. I absolutely love fall and this summer was way to hot and humid. Plus I think Cole will look adorable in a huge puffy snow suit.

For now I'm just enjoying my last summer vaca. Cole just woke up, smiley as ever, had to post a picture of his cuteness. He blew his first raspberry today, I doubt he did it intentionally but it was still very cute.

Make sure to keep checking for Cole's three month video, it should be up within the next couple days!

Bye for now, from me and the munchkin. xox
