Building a House

Sunday, March 29th, 2009

Cole loves visiting the site of our new house and running around in the empty space. He especially loves the black rabbit that hangs out on the lot. Here’s a picture of Cole in what will be his new bedroom.

Daddy and Cole at our new favorite breakfast spot Payards. Cole LOVED the chocolate waffle with bananas foster.

Cole tries to get Daddy’s attention by banging on the window.

Lenny and Lucy are Cole’s best friends although Cole definitely has the upper hand. He likes to demand that they go in the kennel and will then either sit on the kennel or in front of the kennel so they can’t get out. We’re hoping he’s not practicing to be a prison guard.

We bought a round coffee table thinking it’d be safer than a square one, but as you can see from Cole’s ear, he still managed to fall onto the edge. He was pretty upset about it, which was very upsetting for Dulce. After crying for a while, Cole looked at Dulce and said “Don’t worry Dulce. I not be careful.”

Musical Cole

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

Cole yearns to sing but he doesn’t know many songs. Brian and I haven’t done a great job of teaching him words to songs. He knows Happy Birthday to You and songs from Blues Clues. Hopefully while I’m on maternity leave, I can take him to a Mommy and Me class so he can explore his musicality.

I’ve been really slacking in taking pictures of Cole. Here are three videos I hope you enjoy.

Cole, Brian and I went to the Las Vegas Zoo yesterday, which I am sad to say is the most pitiful zoo I’ve ever seen. I felt like we paid to see pigeons and chickens. They had a few noteworthy animals, but their cages were old and small. I felt sorry for the animals. The organization that runs the zoo probably does the best it can with the resources it has.

This morning, Cole was making noise with his baton, or as his Pop used to call things of this nature - his dur dur. I wish I could take video of Cole when he didn’t know he was being filmed. He either says “cheese” over and over or insists on seeing the tape of himself (”Let’s go see”) before I’m ready to stop filming.
