New Niece

A few weeks ago we celebrated my sister-in-law at a baby shower!

 Little Helpers

  And the weekend after Thanksgiving baby girl was born!  

We are so happy to have another niece in the family! I can't wait to met her this weekend!

 Proud Daddy!

Cousins and more cousins.

This month we have been traveling a lot - (or maybe it just feels like a lot since I am going out of town again next week).  But we are having tons of fun with our families.  And Cole has been having lots of fun with his cousins. 

I spent a week with my sister, Laura, helping her take care of the twins and Kate. 
Cole loves his cousin Kate.  He just smiles when he sees her and she always is acting silly so he just laughs and laughs at her.  She loves playing with Cole and teaching him things. 

Ray took Cole down to North Augusta to celebrate Brody's 1st birthday!  I think Cole enjoyed playing with Brody's toys!

Over the Thanksgiving weekend we got to enjoy our cousins again.  Cole like to tackle Brody.  Brody is so sweet and calm and mostly just lets him.  I believe I have a wild little boy.

Brody, get out of my way. 

The Parrish Men

We enjoyed visiting with my cousins from Kentucky and grabbing a quick picture of almost all my Grandmama's great - grandchildren.

Cole finally learned to clap yesterday.  I have to say I was a little worried that it was taking him so long to learn to clap.  But he did it for the first time last night and today he has just been clapping all day long!

9 months

Cole is 9 months old.  (or was several weeks ago and i'm just now getting around to writing this).

He is such a blessing and such a fun little guy!  He is doing so much now and continues to learn more and more each day.  He is at such a fun, busy and tiring stage.

He is crawling all over the place.  fast.  He is into everything.
He definitely understand what "No" means but thinks its ok to do it again if he gives me a sweet smile after.
He is pulling up and cruising around the room holding onto the furniture and everything else he can get to.
He can stand without holding onto something for a pretty long time - like 8 -10 seconds or so.
He took his first steps!  Although they aren't very steady, he is not afraid to do it at all.  We will see how long it takes for him to get more stable with walking.

He is definitely keeping me busy and making me tired daily but I'm so thankful for him and we love him so much!

Little LIon

We didn't do much for Halloween.  But we did dress Cole up and try to take pictures. He wasn't really happy about it. 

Especially when I took his passy.

Pumpkin Patch and Farm

My mom came to visit last weekend so we decided to take Cole to the pumpkin patch at Deep Well Farm.   It was a lot of fun.
