Happy Birthday Cole!

I cannot believe that my sweet little boy is 4! Where did the time go??? It seems like yesterday they handed me that 6lb 2oz baby and my heart never felt so full! He has brought so much joy into our lives. We are so thankful that God has trusted us with such a huge responsibility and we pray daily that we can guide him to be the man that God wants him to be one day. I am so grateful for every moment we get to have him!!! He is getting SO big!! He weighs about 36 lbs now and is around 40inches tall. He is into LOTS of things right now. He loves CARS, Mickey Mouse, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Peter Pan,  football...particularly kicking, firetrucks, trains,weapons, hot wheels, and remote control cars. He LOVES to be outside. He still likes to eat goldfish & cheezits. But also loves chips, peanut butter & jelly, hot dogs, cheeseburgers, chicken, fries....and steak!  But most importantly...he dips EVERYTHING in ranch! He is doing great at school. He can write his name...not perfect...but pretty good. He is taking speech to correct his "k" sounds and his "g" sounds.  He LOVES church and his teachers there. One of my favorite things he does right now is he reverses a few compound words...for example is he sees a snowflake...he calls it a flowsnake. . and Piggly Wiggly is Wiggly Piggly is SO funny! He loves to run down the hill and play with Nanny & Pappy  when we get home in the afternoons ....for some reason their snacks are better than ours:):) & enjoys his dune buggy he got for Christmas. He and Addy have started telling everyone they are brother & sister and stick to their story and we have a hard time convincing them otherwise:) Lucy is getting bigger and they are beginning to play together as well. He got a new niece this year....Elsie but he is not too sure about her yet. He cares about her & prays for her...but he does not want to hold her and tells me that every time we go somewhere he thinks she might be there:) I guess he'll come around. He went to the movies a few more times this year. Nanny took him to see Winnie the Pooh and Alvin and the Chipmunks & me & Blayne took him to see Cars 2. He has also gotten in to bowling. He has gone a few times with us, Ta Ta & Steven and then with Nanny & Pappy and he really likes it...but it makes Pappy nervous:) He really enjoyed capball this past year & is looking forward to playing again. And he daily asks me....when are we going to the beach?  He also loves to ride on Pop's boat in the summer with Ashton.....or rather he likes to drive Pops boat:)  He sang for the first time in church this Christmas was definitely one to remember!  Time is really flying by with this boy. He amazes me by what he is learning everyday. He keeps telling me....soon I will be 5 mommy....I keep telling him shhhhhh.....I can't even fathom it....having a 4 year old is hard enough to accept today.  We love you Coleton Jack Lowry!
