71: Cole no longer gets a pacifier except in the car. He loves his numerous blankies (all the ones with satin trim) and has to bring them ALL, be it 2 or 10, when leaving his bed. Mom rocks him & his monkey to sleep every night and sings Elvis. His vocabulary is rapidly expanding! Some of his often used words are more, no, eat, stuck, help, squirrel, bye-bye, owie, and Mom's favorite "PLEASE!" which sounds more like 'peas.' He is not quite ready for potty training but shows interest in the potty chair and uses it on occasion. He still loves to snuggle. He adores his big brothers but does occasionally bite them during rough play! He has seen two movies in the theater, "Monsters Vs. Aliens" and "G-Force" which he enjoyed as long as he had plenty of fruit snacks. Cole weighed 30 pounds at his 2 year old appointment and didn't even cry with his shot. As Cole officially leaves babyhood behind and embarks on the big boy part of his life, Mom is a little sad but very excited to meet the wonderful young man she knows he'll grow to be. | years
