It's fun to watch little kids grow up. You start to see glimpses of their personalities little by little. They are so uninhibited and so refreshing. While Cole was opening his presents, Caroline turned to her aunt, who is 2 years older, and said "Chelsea, after Cole opens all his presents, we get to play with them!" Cole didn't really care. He was content playing with the wrapping paper and a balloon he carried around with him all night. Later, as we sang "Happy Birthday" to Cole, he got really shy when he noticed all the attention in the room was centered on him. He's definitely a Zurcher!
Cole tried to blow out the candles by placing his front teeth on his lower lip. It didn't quite work, but his dad helped him.
