Cole Update

So I’ve had a lot of posts about Caitlyn lately because she’s had a lot going on but wanted to update where Cole is right now too! 

He is my strong willed child.  I’m told that someday when he’s older this will be a good trait.  Right now he gives mommy and daddy a run for their money!  He has his ideas of how things should be, what he wants to do and when he wants to do it.  He can throw a fit that lasts for hours. 

On the other hand he can be super sweet.  He loves to cuddle.  He’ll snuggle up on the couch with you and just lay there sweet as can be.  His laugh is infectious.  He loves Caitlyn and follows her around like a lost puppy (and thankfully Caitlyn is a patient big sister and most of the time allows this without complaint).  He worries when someone else is upset and wants to make things better. 

He just started sleeping through the night around the end of last year at 2 years 3 months.  It was a long 2 years of broken sleep!  He is a picky eater and wants nothing to do with vegetables and very few fruits.  He’d be happy with chicken nuggets or mac & cheese with applesauce for every meal!  Carbs are his friend and everything else is yucky.  Meal times are a struggle and I try really hard to just let it go.  He eats what we make for dinner and if he doesn’t want it he doesn’t have to eat but he doesn’t get anything else. 

He recently moved from the toddler one room to toddler 2 at daycare.  He’s had a few successful potty attempts while at school but has yet to actually go on the potty at home.  He’ll sit on the potty (on his terms) and he’ll really try (it’s coming momma, it’s coming) but nothing has happened yet.  We’re going to have 4 days at home over 4th of July weekend and I’m hoping to make some progress during that time.  He’ll be moving to the preschool room in September if we get him potty trained by his 3rd birthday.  Fingers crossed it won’t be as hard and I’m anticipating. 

He is definitely all boy.  He likes to climb, get dirty, wrestle with daddy, fall down, get back up, give mischievous looks when getting into trouble, and he LOVES trains! 
He currently wants you to repeat everything he says so he knows you understand.  Most of the time this isn't a problem but there are still times that we can't understand him and it takes awhile for us to figure it out.  He is relentless! 
He is an awesome part of our family and we love him to the moon and back!
