Of course Cole didn't smile at Santa but I will say that he was very intrigued by him.  He didn't understnand why I was putting him on this random guys lap.  As I am pulling up to Bass Pro Shop (Santa's workshop) and getting Cole out of the car...I realize that he has on one shoe!  It is so typical of me to get all the way to the parking lot realizing my poor child just has on one shoe!  Oh gives our pictures character and helps us remember our Santa trip!

Cole's first haircut!

Okay, so my child has been having some seriously ragged bangs for a while but I couldn't bear the fact to have someone cut off his curls.  I'm scared to death they won't come we got a trim.  It was an expensive trim but I got pictures!

It cracks me up that this baby is in a poker cape (whatever they are called)'s hard to tell in the pictures but you can actually tell that he doesn't have the aweful split ends.  You can see that Cole just sits while he gets his haircut, I don't think he is all that impressed at the end!

Cole's first birthday!

I can't believe his first birthday was November 8th!  These are pictures from his birthday party!  We had a sock monkey theme.  We had his birthday party at Overton Park.  It couldn't not have been a more perfect day to have a party! 
Cole went to town on his "smash" cake!  We all had so much fun!!!

Lassiter and Cole are best friends!

It's crazy that my sweet little baby is a little toddler now!

Cole cruisin'

So we were at Buy Buy Baby a couple of weeks ago, and Nick has been wanting to get Cole a walker. He thinks he remembers how much fun it was when he was baby (which is funny b/c he doesn't have ANY memories as a child...I mean ANY before the age of five...always thought that was odd...besides the point). Nick ran over to the ONLY BLACK walker b/c it was shaped like a old car. It had no lights, noise or anything...thank goodness Nick walked away when I told him Cole needs something a little more "stimulating".
As we were going down the main aisle, Nick finds THIS walker and we pull it down from the shelf...plop Cole in...and he starts walking down the aisle!!! What sold Nick too is that you can actually hook up your
i-pod to it!!! How crazy is that???? So we were sold...this is a video of Cole cruisin' in our den:

Look at my chompers!!! I have two more about to come in!!!

Best Buds!

This little cousins DO NOT HAVE a chance except to be best buds!  Lassiter is nine weeks older than Cole.  Ever since Cole has been born...these two have been inseparable since.  They really treat each other like brothers.  Cole is the high strung, stressed one (got a little from his mom...) while Lassiter is the easiest baby in the whole wide world.  He is the third child, so he is used to getting the run around with his two older brothers.  Cole and Lassiter spend more time with each other than either Laura or myself spend with our own children.  They are with each other everyday in the same nursery at daycare and most days after work or on the weekends, we are usually out hanging out with the boys, Laura and Mead.  I can't wait to see the two of them grow up together.  Here are a couple of pictures of the past couple of months of them together.

6 months and FOUR teeth!

I am absolutely amazed that Cole has four teeth cutting in at the same time! He just turned six months on Sunday! All I've been wanting is to take some sweet six month "gummy" pictures. I had a feeling that he was not going to make it a week, his poor little gums are so swollen and inflamed. Oh well, I guess we will always remember his pictures with his teeth and gums petruding out! We are going to Botanical Gardens tomorrow to meet the photographer. One thing I have been debating for pictures was to get Cole's bubble monogrammed or not. His full name is Nicholas Daniel Miles, jr...but we nicknamed him Cole from Nicholas. This is something I am going to have to explain his entire life...why is there no "C" in my initial, Mommy? Well I bit the bullet and decided to go ahead and monogram. I figured that I was just going to have to get used to the fact when we have monogram items for him, there will be no "C."

We were so proud of Nick for running the 2011 Country Music 1/2 Marathon this year with one of my best friends, Chrissy. We got to visit them and while Cole was watching all the runner's go by...he kept on keeping out his hand (like giving the runners "hand fives!") It was the funniest thing that I ever saw, and I was so bummed that I didn't get a picture of Cole. Jordan (Chrissy's husband) and I were cracking up as people were going out of there way to fun and give Cole a high five! He is a pretty awesome dude! Afterwards, we go to hang out at this house and have a cookout! It was so much fun! A couple of bottles of crying throughout night...equals one nice hangover in the morning. Well, we made it home...almost in one piece.

People have been asking out about the damage in Cahaba Heights. We were very fortunate that our house and street did not get hit by the tornado. However, two streets over looks like a completely different place. We were not able to drive on the roads for a while but all I can say is that I started crying when I saw all of the damage. Words can't describe seeing so much damage to the places you drive by millions times a year.

Spring, Easter, Mother's Day (6 month)

I love this picture of the three of us! This picture was taken on Easter. Cole had the Easter bunny come visit and we then went to Dan and Carol's house for Easter lunch. I can't believe how big Cole is getting. I will be adding more pictures of him, but one thing that I hope is not going to change is Cole's blue eyes!

Another Xmas

I like to take pictures in his glider so we can see how big he is getting!

Christmas 2010

Here is one of the many outfits our sweet boy wore for Christmas. Santa was very good to him!

Thanksgiving 2010

Cole's very first holiday, Thanksgiving 2010. Here are some pictures that I took while we were at the Miles' house for the holiday.

It's scary how much Cole's eye shape matches Nick and his great-grandad! 4 generations is pretty cool:
Daniel Green Miles "Grandad"
Daniel Greene Miles, jr. "Grandaddy"
Nicholas Daniel Miles "Daddy"
Nicholas Daniel Miles, jr. "Cole"
It is just a crazy coincidence that Green is Nick's father and grandfather's middle name. Too bad it isn't spelled like my maiden name, Greene!
