Two Weeks and Counting!

Here's our little guy right before he had a royal fit on Sunday afternoon. I have no idea what bothered him so much but he just didn't want to settle down and playing with him, changing his diaper or feeding him didn't help. Then we had a fun day on Tuesday. We're guessing the pasta sauce from Sunday's dinner at mom's didn't sit well with baby. He was extremely gas-y and burp-y Monday night and all day Tuesday. So much so that he would even wake himself up. Overall he was pretty good about it but he just wanted to be held all day because he would get upset from all the rumblings in his tummy. I was okay holding him all day because I felt so bad for him. He even let out two HUGE BELCHES - like he had just had a six-pack of Coke or something. Remind me to lay off the pasta sauce (sorry mom!) for the time being. He was pretty much back to normal Tuesday night. Thank goodness!

Oh, we had a doctor check-up on Monday as well. That same day his umbilical cord fell off - yea! We now have an official belly-button. He is now 19 inches long and weighs 5 lbs 11 oz. So he is gaining about an ounce a day. Keep it up - we need some chubs on those chicken legs!

P.S. A few more pics from the second week of his life were added to his site.


  1. Dear Grandson; You sure are a handsome young man. I can't wait to hold you on Saturday. Maybe we can watch a football game together this weekend. I am sending you a couple of your Daddy's old outfits to try on. I have held on to them for 28 years and I am sure you will look better in them than your "Ole Man" did. They should be there before I do. Well I must go, give Mom and Dad my love and I'll see you on Saturday. Love Grandpa Poling

  2. Love the new pics, and glad he is growing!!! Let me know if you need any company, Corrinna and I are always happy to come hang out :)

    Love you!

  3. He is precious, congrats. Love his hair.

    I looovvve the picture of Cole on this site. He looks so precious and peaceful the hair! Ricky, he looks like you when you were a baby. It sounds like Grandpa Poling is just a "tad bit" proud! Anyway, so happy for you all. It sounds like baby Cole is getting a lot of love and attention.
