who dat?

The other day, Brian surprised us all with his annual (yes, annual) haircut. He mentioned that it took Cole about fifteen minutes to figure out who he was when we got home. ha.ha.

We've been getting lots of close encounters with baby "monkey bird" lately. (Brian says baby monkey bird is Cole's kindred. aww, sweet.) He and mama have been coming down from the eucalyptus and have been perching on our fence. It's their new fave lunch spot.

Often times when we're hanging out in the backyard and baby monkey bird calls out, Cole looks for him. Yesterday, I finally put it together...he responds to that sound 'cause it sounds like his squeaky toys!

seven months old

Big milestones for Cole this month. Two weekends ago, his first tooth broke through and the second one's been coming up right next to it. A little extra cuddle time and teething gel seems to soothe things for him. Though he has several teething toys, he seems to really like my finger the most. youch. Cole's also learned to sit up on his own. He still refuses tummy time and has gotten really good at rolling over just to avoid it. He's been reaching for things while sitting up, so we'll see if it will lead to crawling. The week before his tooth showed up, he also discovered that banging on his piano made sounds. That night, Brian and I were treated to Cole's first piano recital.
