3 Months and some other things

On October 19th Cole was 3 months old!!!

Cute little guy.  
His first 3 months have all in all been pretty good!  He's been the easiest baby of my 3 by far. 

The other day Cole was hanging with his twin cousin Cal who is technically younger but already has all these skills, most notably laughing and reading.  And he's way ahead in the percentiles also.  Anyway, after hearing and seeing all Cal's tricks Cole decided that he needed to up his game.  And !viola! we have a laugher:

Well, a "chuckle-er" anyway.

and here's one of him chatting with me:

Ok, next child.  
Bubby was looking pretty tough the other day so I had to take a picture:

That's how tough guys eat oatmeal.

Please notice the ink on his arm and the punk-rock bed-head hair as well.

Back off, Ma

Ok next child.
Lena Bean.
So Lena is a non-napper, right?  Right.  Every so often though she'll still take an afternoon snooze.  the other day she built herself a cave in the kitchen and then napped there.  I was amused:

And Mike got it on video because it was hard to appreciate as a stil photo:

So these kids are talkers for sure.  They're also decently entertaining.  Here are some typical conversations from the past week:

Conversation with Cole;

Me- "Hey Cole!!!!!!!"
Cole- "illgah!"
Me- "oh yea?  Are you going to tell me more?"
Cole- "aaAAAaahh!  Ilga ga ga"
Me- "Oh yea? Thanks for telling me all the things."
Cole- (blows a raspberry and smiles)

Conversation with James:

Me- "Hey Bubby, what are you doing?"
James- "umm. runnin." (runs all around living room)
Me- "wow, you run fast!"
James- "haHA! fast. runnin. umm. Patch. Chase you."
Me- "Patch is chasing you? That's fun"
James- "uh huh! Fun. Tiger pie." 
Me- "Tiger pie, eh?  Ok well I'm going to get lunch ready for us"
James- "lunch. eatin. lunch. Sandwich. Sandwich. SANDWICH. SANDWICH!!!" (still running all around living room)

Conversation with Lena at 12:30pm after picking her up from PreK:

Me- "Hey Bean, how was school today?"
Lena- "It was a great day, mom.  It was just great.  We played outside and runned around and Tori chased us.  And we yelled and Vance didn't want to play with us.  Because, well, he just didn't want to.  It was just too upsetting for him so he played on the slide.  And MOM I have such a great idea!"
Me- "Oh yea? what is it?"
Lena- (insert high levels of drama) "Let's. Have. Meredith come over!!!!......"
(This conversation ends at approx 7pm when she goes to bed)

I have 2 videos that won't load... I'll keep on trying and post them soon.
