first days....






Happy Monday to everyone! We are especially happy here at our house. Cohen is doing wonderfully. He is making lots of noises right now in his sleep as I am typing. Cutest thing I've ever seen! I just had some of you request another couple of pics so here they are. As most of you know, when you have a new baby, you are really busy with caring for him but we have also been so blessed to have family and friends welcoming him home, keeping us extra busy! I am dying to sit down to post about our time in the hosptial, with Cohen and with E. I promise soon, cause you all need to hear about how great she is :-) But til I can do that, maybe tonight, here are some more pics! Thanks for loving on us with your comments! We love them and they will be so special for Cohen to read when he learns how!

Also, look how long his fingers are! He is so big already! He holds his head up a little, and this morning, he pushed his pacifier back in his mouth....by himself! We were so proud. We've changed his outfit seventy times cause I can't quite get that diaper thing right. He pee pee'd all over A.K. and was still really cute!

I left my comment on the wrong pictures....sorry. But he is still a doll. I love his big brown eyes. Cherish that swing. It was our life saver in the beginning.

Hey Guys, it's Wednesday now and I'm still thinking about you all! I don't want to be the crazy stalker neighbor though! Hope all is going well and we would love to bring you dinner one night. Any requests or things you hate?

Elizabeth and Will from across the way!! :~)
