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!
