I LOVE the way he takes my face in his little hands and turns it to look at him when he really wants to talk to me. He started talking in sentences almost overnight about a month ago and now he is always talking. Here are some of my favorite phrases: "mommy, like it?" "watch the buses!" "Whas up, dude?" and is answer to almost every question, "I don know"
Here is a slide show of his big day. After the race, the kids went shopping at our neighborhood garage sale and I think Cole had the best birthday ever. He got books, a play deck with a car, a tent, and some animals. He had a blast!
Ever since Nathan and I got married we have had the tradition of getting doughnuts for conference. The kids would go out early Saturday morning with Nathan when we lived in Utah. They would go to Krispy Kreme and get enough for the two days of breakfasts. When we moved away we had to make due with whatever doughnuts we could find, and they were not nearly as yummy as Krispy Kreme.
In April, I decided we should make them instead of buying them. It was a hit, even though the recipe was not good enough to keep. This go around, Nathan found a recipe and worked on them all morning. It took about 2 hours, but they were really good! Here is a slide show of that experience.
