Long before I was even pregnant I often thought about having a son and how amazing that would be. Dug is the only living child of his parents and I wanted to have a son to pass on the family name and make his parents proud.
During my many late night drives to/from my father's house for friday night dinner I would frequently listen to this song, Childhood Dreams by Nelly Furtado, and think about how wonderful it would be to finally be pregnant and have a son.
When I found out we were infact having a boy I was so happy. My dream had come true. I now see that Cole really was 'the little boy made for me in the stars.' Although Cole did not join our family in the way had hoped, he is and will always be our first born son.
Dug and I consider Cole our little adventure seeker. He was always kicking up a storm and punching like crazy. Unfortunately, he was so eager to see what the world had to offer that he just could not stay inside of me and had to get out.
Whenever we see a butterfly we think of Cole and his adventurous personality. Flying around checking out all the wonderful places the world has to offer.
