He looks like him... but I don't know

Well, he looks like my Cole and he smells like my Cole, and he kisses like my Cole... but it can't be him. The little boy I took to Hobby Lobby today is living in Cole's body. The Cole I know doesn't scream. The boy I took in public today was a high pitched screamer.....Yikes! What am I supposed to do about that? I have "ONE OF THOSE KIDS". Oh well, I love this new boy but maybe someday he can meet the old Cole and they can combine into one baby.

My little boy is growing up so fast......

There are some days when I look at my sweet little Cole and cannot even remember what having a tiny baby was like. There are many times where I will just look at him and wish I could have a video camera in my head so that I can remember all of the sweet faces and sweet kisses that I am blessed with everyday.

Today, my mom and sister and cole and I went to Shipshewana and we went to a toy store and he walked around and gave all of the stuffed animals kisses, and it was so precious. He is all about kisses and he is actually able to follow simple commands and I think to myself, when did he pick up on that? He is at such a wonderful stage in life and I just love him!!!

He looks like a giant here:)

Always eating something from outside! We love Crocs!
Look at the fish that Cody caught at my parents!
He loves to share with Moose but then he throws stuff at him....

Scary Chicago story.......

So, my whole family minus Cody were shopping in Chicago. The guys were across the street in Eddie Bauer and the girls were in Forever 21. Tiff was outside because she has a headache, and I bought a purse because mine broke so I went out side to switch the stuff from my old purse to my new purse. Tiff was telling me about her headache and then she just said, I don't feel good." and so I stepped in front of her and she laid her head down on my chest, or so I thought. I was rubbing her back until I noticed she was sliding down my chest and taking these weird wheezy breathes, so I called out her name a few times but no response, I picked up her head and she was staring off into space and her face and lips were white. I was freaking out and slapping her face and shaking her. I picked her up and started screaming for help. People ran over and we laid her down on the sidewalk and someone called an ambulance and at some point my mom ran out of the store after realizing that she recongnized the pants of the person on the ground. After someone said she had a pulse and was breathing and said that an ambulance was coming she started to come to but it was weird, her face was all red and splotchy and it almost looked like she was going to get hives. It took her awhile to get what was going on her eyes were rolling back and forth. A nurse and Doctor came by and said she was doing okay. Tiffs sweet husband of like 3 weeks came running across the street and almost got hit by a car and was kneeled on the ground next to her kissing her and hugging her until they got her into the little chair from the firetruck. Well, after checking her vitals they said that she could be released as long as she ate and drank something.
I was a hysterical mess for about the next hour and a half would start sobbing and shaking randomly. That was the scariest thing I have ever seen besides seeing my baby come out grayish blue and making weird wheezing noises when he was born. I hate feeling so helpless.

She is doing fine but she still has a headache so she may go to see a doctor to run some tests. She has past out quite a few times before and all they could figure out after tests is that her heart and her brain are delayed in their communication. When her hearts needs to beat faster it takes a bit for her brain to tell her heart. Lets pray that they get it figured out and she stops passing out.

Other than that freak out we had a great time!

Well, tomorrow my sisters and their husbands and my brother and his girlfriend and my mom and dad and myself are going to Chicago for the day. Where is Cody, you might ask? We got a call from our renters in Muncie saying that a pipe is leaking thru the basement ceiling, so he has to go fix it......AGGHHHH.....
Of all the weekends, the pipe had to leak this weekend, when we have had this planned for about 2 months. I am so frustrated with our stupid house that won't sell and won't just not have problems. I guess we are just going to have to list it with a realtor.... So, if you are in Chicago and see a bunch of couples and then a lonely straggler, don't worry it is just me and I didn't loose my partner.

What is going on?

Why is Cole not sleeping? He took like 2 one half hour naps, like 1 hour of napping today... What is going on help!!! He screamed for his first nap for a long time and when I gave in to go rock him he calmed right down and then he clung to me and screamed when I went to put him back in his crib... any ideas? I hope this doesn't happen tomorrow...
