Package from "Cole"

A couple of weeks ago, Noah received a Christmas package from his birth-mother, Nicole. Noah pronounces her name as "Cole" which is pretty funny since we talked about that when we met Nicole before Noah was born. We liked how the name "Noah Cole" sounded like "Nicole"...and that her nieces/nephews call her "Cole" (plus Cole is a family name for us). Anyway! Noah was really excited to get something in the mail to open, and he loved the gifts! She sent him some cute new pajamas, a wooden train, and some cute little board books. She also included a beautiful frame for the whole family to enjoy. Such a thoughtful package...thank you, Nicole!!

Here are a couple of quick clips of Noah opening his package. In the first one I absolutely crack up at Noah's expression when he opens the box. It's full of styrofoam peanuts and he looks up at me, and then back down at the contents, as if trying to figure out how exactly to respond to a gift like that...until he realizes that that there is more in the box!

Thanks again for the thoughtful package, Nicole! We love you!

That's cool, I didn't know about all that background to the choice of Noah's middle name. He's definitely an amazing little dude.

Nicole sent us a nice email about this post, so I thought I'd share (and document) it: "That is cute he calls me Cole and I loved how you told that story about the name!!! I loved seeing him open my little gift and it makes me happy to see he liked it! Love You Guys :)"
