Look Alike??

You be the judge!
I'm always told how much Eli and Cole look alike.
I don't really see it...You be the judge!

Maybe it's just because I'm their Mom and I see them as different individuals...

I see some similarities, but definitely don't think they look identical!

Eli is starting to look more like me...and Cole, well he definitely looks like his Daddy!!

Love them both so much and I'm kind of glad they don't look identical!

I love that they are different with their personalities and looks!

No matter how different or similar they look/are...I LOVE them both with all my heart!

Our Little Monkey!

That was our theme this year for Cole's birthday party!
We call him our little monkey a lot, so it seemed fitting!
I went simple...I'm not a creative/crafty person.
I've tried to be...but I'm just not that person and I'm ok with that!
The cupcakes turned out cute...I stole the idea from a friend!

I can't believe you're 1!!!

Happy Birthday Sweet Little Boy!

Happy 1st Birthday Cole!!!

I can't believe it's been a year!

Cole joined our lives a year ago today at 9:43am!
He is the perfect addition to our family!

You LOVE your big brother and try to do everything he does!

You smile melts our hearts!

You are ornery! (In a cute way!)

We are crazy! We decided to go to the zoo on one of the hottest days of the week/summer!
But, Aaron's sister and fiance are here visiting and we wanted to go!
So we went.
It was HOT.
Luckily, they have a lot of indoor places with AC that we could take breaks in!
The kids were troopers.
It was fun!
(I don't have the greatest pictures! I need a new camera, but just won't really want to spend the money on one yet!!)
Part of the crew...Aaron was on the phone and I'm not sure where Aunt Gerri was!
Have you ever wondered how a giraffe bends down to get something from the ground?? It really can't!
Look how H.O.T Eli is!! And this was only about 10am!
1 of 3 attempts to get them to take a picture. Cole was just not cooperating!
