September Firsts

Last weekend we celebrated the first weekend of college football!
We had one kiddo for each of our teams again this year. Good thing Cate will wear whatever because Cole only wanted to wear Sooners!  Geez Cole!  We continued our tradition of getting a Chick-fil-a nugget tray for dinner and added a cookie cake this year. 

Today is Cole's first day of Pre-K!  He is going three days a week to the same church preschool he went to last year. 
He did a great job of going into his class this morning and seemed excited to get started with school. Cate had the hardest time though. She cried when we left Cole because she wanted to stay with him. Poor girl. Hopefully she and I will have some fun days, but I know she will be super excited to see her Cole Boy in the afternoon.

The Rest of Summer

I wanted to do a quick recap of some of the fun things we did in the last half of summer. 

We picked blueberries and blackberries one more time with our friends, Chad and Emily. 

We took a trip to Toledo for the Marathon Classic in July and had some good Lew Crew time!
We hit up all the kid hot spots in Tulsa!

The Oklahoma Aquarium
The Children's Museum. One of our visits was with my Mom when she came to stay for a week in August. 
The Tulsa Air and Space Museum
Bounce U
The Zoo. We also went here with my Mom on her visit. 
The parks are always a favorite spot. We went to our neighborhood ones and found a new spot, Helicopter Park as the kids like to call it. 

We went swimming a few times. It's hard to get pics of that though!  It's a full attention job with two at the pool!

Cole played soccer again this summer. 

We ate lots of Popsicles!

We went to a Chick-fil-a opening for a couple in our church group. We went to a dinner tasting menu event and a playground opening. 
I think that sums it up!  We had lots of fun without feeling too busy this summer. We definitely didn't travel like we have in past summers, and it was nice to enjoy our time at home and the fun things we can do in Tulsa before Cole starts school next week.

Cate Update

Well I've taken a nice long break from blogging, and haven't totally decided if I'm going to keep it going or not. The main reason I do is to keep track of all the little things that I might otherwise forget.  Especially for Miss Cate!

Cate will be 20 months old in September and she has changed so much this summer!  She has realized her voice and is talking all the time now!  She pretty much copies everything she hears and it's hilarious when some of those things come out of her mouth. 
Some of her latest phrases:
"Cole doing"-or Mama or Dada doing. She says this constantly when she's looking for someone or just wants to know what you are doing. She uses it with Cole when she is annoyed with what he is doing!

We couldn't believe she came up with "beautiful" all by herself to describe the glowing turtle's stars on the ceiling!

She also says all the silly things that Cole and Tony say..."Uh Goofy", "Bagottie", "Brutal", etc. These are all random inside jokes they have. She just joins right in. 

She loves saying colors. Her favorite is purple, but she also likes green (geen) and pink. 

She says dink for drink. :) There's so much more and her vocabulary just gets better everyday. She regularly puts two and three words together too. 

She is still obsessed with her lovey. We have six of them and one is with us at all times!  Hanging from her mouth!
She can be a little feisty when things aren't going her way. She seems to get annoyed with Cole more than he does with her!  But in the end, they love each other and play well together.  I love catching them being sweet with one another.
