Cole’s 1st birthday

Wow! I am how many fingers old today?!

You woke up this morning with a smile on your face, as usual. Dad brought you into our bedroom singing the Beatles Birthday Song… “they say it’s your birthday!” which we followed up with two verses of the traditional “Happy Birthday to you” song. What a year, Cole! I wish I could freeze you just as you are for a little bit longer. In the past couple of weeks you have really started becoming a little boy, breaking free from your infant cocoon into my handsome little butterfly! You’ve become a chatter box (like your mom) and you make me and your dad laugh all the time when you mimic words we say by repeating the first or second syllable. Duck is “da” and car is “cah” and kitty is “gee” and you love to talk with a mouth full of food. You eat everything that I put in front of you, except for chicken and avocados.  Your favorite meals are waffles with blueberries and vegetable tortellini soup. Your favorite snacks are Annie’s cheddar bunnies, kiwi, and any cracker that you can hold onto and bite your way through.

We’ve had a busy year together. You’ve banged on drums in music class, learned to sign “dog” in sign language class, made lots of friends on baby playdates, used the swing at the playground, swam and took boat rides at the lake, had lunch in Boston, wore a space helmet at the children’s museum, hiked Blue Hills and had plenty of cuddle time with your mom, dad, and the whole family! There is so much love surrounding you each and every day. Our lives are much richer with you in it.

A note from your Dad:

As each day passes I realize how lucky your mom and I are. You are such a special little boy and I can’t wait to share many fun things with you. Thank you for making me smile and putting it all in to perspective.

Love, Dad

Happy First Birthday, Cole!!

  1. Happy Birthday sweetie…Mima will be seeing you in a little while for her big boy’s smooches.

    Linds and Greg, it brings joy to Dad and my heart that you have the joys of parenting in perspective and are treasuring and living in the moment with Cole. It is very important!! and it shows. Cole is very special with very special parents. Love all 3 xo

    • It is not on my blog yet, but super easy! Put 1 carton of vegetable brother, 1 zucchini (diced), 1 summer squash (diced), 1 can diced tomatoes (I used the organic kind that it seasoned with garlic, basil, and oregano) into a slow cooker and cook on low for 5 – 6 hours. Pop in tortellini (I use fresh) about an hour before serving. Enjoy!
