Cole Savage

Cole Savage was born on February 9th at 9:55am.  He was 7lbs and 19.5 inches.  Aside from that he appears (knock on wood) to be blessed with a quiet and mellow temperament. That's all we know for sure.  Psychic Friends Network however adds that Cole will probably have hair and may graduate from high school around 2020.  Regardless, we're lucky to have him.
