cole “the toolman” johnson

Cole has always loved “dada’s tools” and is obsessed with tape measures and screwdrivers so when he got the chance to have his very own tool belt he was over the moon! Aunt Jen {Brooks’ sister} came to visit us and took Cole shopping to pick out his birthday present. Instantly Cole fell in love with Mack the truck from cars, but he could only pick one toy. We moved on to tractors just to make sure this was the toy he really wanted. When given the question if he still wanted Mack or the tractor his response was “no tractor” and handed it back.IMG_8076 Then we moved onto the fire trucks. He played with all of it’s buttons and thought it was pretty special. I reminded him that he already has a fire truck at home. So he handed it back and said “no fire truck” and hung onto Mack.  Aunt Jen then spotted a really cool tool belt and handed it over to Cole. He immediately said “no Mack” and handed him back. He was beyond thrilled to have his very own tools just like his daddy!IMG_8041IMG_8056It did kind of break my heart when I discovered the hat didn’t fit. He really wanted to wear that construction hat too! I guess it’s something my little guy will just have to get used to. Luckily he thought it was ok since the hat didn’t fit mama either.IMG_8032 IMG_8068 I have to say these cute little chubby thighs with his itty bitty tool belt was more than I could handle. He is beyond cute running around with his power tools! Thanks Aunt Jen for making his birthday extra special!!

too sweet - like the diaper, perfect for busting out when he brings dates to the house (in the far future)!

Love the pictures. That is an awesome tool belt. Love that he picks out toys the same way that Ian does. Ian has tools too and loves them. He measures with anything that has a pull string, tape measure or yo yo.
I found a yellow construction hat at Target a couple of weeks ago for a dollar that fits Ian head and is actually a little big on him. It looks like Bob the Builder's hat.

So cute! And what a good boy picking out the toy! I just sucked it up and went to Lowe's and got Trace a real hard hat.

Love "the toolman"! Cole is too cute with his tools! It's sad about the hat but both my kiddos had big heads and hats would never fit them. It's funny how we love those little bodies our kids have. Can't get enough of little fingers and toes, chubby thighs and an itty bitty butt.

Sooo cute!! Love the pictures of your Toolman, especially those edible legs! Simon picks out presents the same way and he loves "fixing" things!
