Cohen Bennet

Okay, so I CANNOT figure out how to get these really great pics of Cohen onto the page from court's photo album at snapfish, so....I will give you some not so great ones and hopefully get this worked out tomorrow so we can show him off to you all!!! We had a full day, and I do apologize for not blogging well right now! Today was amazing and I am completely in love with another man....Cohen! He is perfect and healthy and doing great. E is doing okay, considering. I will post more later, but we are all doing well. Thanks for you prayers, now you can enjoy with us the fruit of our and your labor (in praying:-)

Ok all, let me be the first to say how perfect Cohen is. After spending a couple hours with Cohen, Mandy and Eric, and David and Cindy, it was evident to us all the void this little guy had filled in Mandy and Eric's world.I could see the anticipation in Mandy and Eric as we waited for the counsler to let them know they could finally see and more importantly touch their little bundle.As Mandy picked him up, kissed him on those beautiful lips, she sweetly said, "hi Cohen, I'm your mom, I love you." She then Introduced him to his new Dad. Eric gently kissed him several times, and you could feel their joy.As Cohen was transferred from Grand parent to grand parent, is was evident to me this child will never, ever, lack for love and affection, that is if we can ever pry him from Mandy and Eric. Cohen was amazing in so many ways. It was amazing that for hours he made eye contact with Mandy and Eric as if he knows. It was amazing that for an hour or better as we reigned a barrage of camera flashes at this small little child, he seemed totally ok with that. But most of all it was amazing to see Mandy and Eric's dream come true. Now I know all who read this will say, every body says that about their new child, But Cohen is truly the most beautful child ever. Big bright eyes, beautiful skin, a head full of hair, and extremely handsome. Gonna be a real lady killer.One quick highlight.All who know Eric, know his obsession for cleaning. As Cohen was finishing off his lunch and being burbed by dad, he decided to do his business, you know the in and out theory. Without hesitation, Eric had the diaper off, cleaned up the little guy, and put him back in order. Only problem I'm not sure he was done, but as always Eric doesn't let the mess get out of hand to quick before he jumps into action. Eric and Mandy, thanks for letting us be part of this wonderful day. Many more to come. We love you and Cohen.Pa Pa and Ju Ju
