All My Brothers, Sisters, and Me!
So, in honor of so much family in town, I took a bunch of pictures of Cole. Hahahaha, I know- from these pictures, you'd think I was watching Cole all weekend and the rest of the family had disappeared. Well, I hope they're not that devoid of other people... But here he is, in all his glory. Mr. Cole River.
Early on playing in the baby pool, my mom went down the slide, and in the split second we watched her go down, Cole turned away and started running in the water. Well, a foot and a half of water is super high on him, and his top half was moving faster than his bottom half, and he just plunged into the water. I grabbed him out of the water, he had been under for less than a second- I promise we weren't neglecting him or far away at all, but we were all like ahhh! He just blinked his eyes and looked around like, what's the issue? Ed said that's how Missy Franklin got started- she went under and didn't cry or care, so her parents enrolled her in swim lessons. Good luck Patti and Ed, I see 5am practices in your future :-)
After 2 hours of playing in the pool, Cole was hungry and ready to go home. So we got him home, fed him some snacks, and were chilling outside on the deck when this happened.
So then Mom grabbed a broom and was sweeping the deck off. She grabbed another for him and was teaching him how to sweep too. After she was done, she set both aside, but Cole wasn't done this magnificent game yet! No way!
So yeah, like I said, you'd think I hung out with only Cole all weekend, not my entire family, but oh well. We'll make sure to get more family shots next time :-)
Congrats Becky on getting a position in the Field Band!! Can't wait to have you super close by in a month!!
