Farewell to Baby Cole
Our darling Cole has jumped headfirst into the Terrible Two's. He's just a bit early. Cole has definitely stayed a "baby" much, much longer than Nolan or Avrie. He has changed almost overnight. Yesterday was the very first day that he's shown flat-out defiance and meant it. His cute little tantrums have turned into the embarrassing kind. His sweet, easy going demeanor has been replaced by a very determined and strong-willed little bugger. He refuses to eat anything unless he's the one holding the utensil. Last night at the Y Easter Party he threw himself on the floor in a rage because Evan was trying to open a piece of candy for him. He grabbed it furiously and shoved the whole thing in his mouth wrapper and all. Which resulted in a larger tantrum because it didn't taste good. Imagine that. He refuses to be rocked, doesn't like to be carried and pouts if he even hears you thinking the word "no." Oh, where did my baby go? Despite the challenges, I love this stage. And my darling non-baby.
