We never got around to having birthday cake for Kole on his birthday. October 3 was on a Friday (which means football game) so we met Jason at McDonalds and had a birthday dinner. He did get an ice cream sundae with a candle in it! Kole just has a few little friends, and it's hard to expect family to come everytime there's a birthday so we just kind of celebrated low key. This Sunday I decided I wanted some pictures of him eating birthday cake so I set up in the yard, and let him go! He had so much fun destroying the cake...and eating some of it too. The wind kept blowing everything over, and the balloons only lasted a few minutes before they were in the top of a tree. I can't believe my little man is a year old already! Time really flies when you have kids. I'm beginning to think it goes by faster the more children you have!

I know it's been a long LONG time since the last time I wrote anything! I should be ashamed! A lot has happened since the last blog, but that's for a later time! My baby boy turned one on October 3rd! I can't believe a whole year has passed! He is so much fun to watch! Every new thing is amazing to him, and he is soaking up the world like a little sponge! He has a new trick. His top two teeth are finally coming in and he has discovered that he can put his top and bottom teeth together and make grinding noises! It makes my skin crawl, but he LOVES it! He bites everything...Cheerios are eaten a bite at a time, and he tries to eat anything he can get his hands on...which leaves me sweeping the floor 4 or 5 times a day!Yesterday was his first day in a "big boy" carseat, and I laughed so hard watching his face as he watched everything going by in the window. His little face was in a constant state of shock! I wish I had taken a picture! I haven't taken his one year pictures yet because Jason wants to be home when I do it...I don't know if that will ever happen (Jason being home long enough for me to take a picture that is). He is really busy with football this time of year, and it seems like every weekend he has something he has to do! This weekend we were going to clean out the garage and have a garage sale, but a friend who has done us a lot of favors called in a favor from Jason...so he's really obligated to help out! I know he wants to be home, but it's one of those things he just can't refuse!
