The Birthday Cake!

Cohen was at first really upset because we stripped him down to his diaper and took him away from his toys. But after he saw this cake in front of him he was very interested. Then he started to slowly pick at the frosting and eat he cake. His cousin Olivia was making him laugh so hard- that's why he is laughing in these pictures- so cute! By the end he was a disaster- cake was going up his nose and all over his face. Cohen loves cake!!!

The Party

Cohen got a lot of fun presents for his birthday. By the time we were opening the last present he knew what was he was supposed to do.

What a mess-he still loves playing with all his new toys. thanks everyone for buying toys to entertain my son.

He found a new love- balloons! we still have some around our house and he plays with them every morning. The other day Steve had two balloons stuck to his head- he is so fun.

Cohen's 1st Birthday!!

I can't believe my baby is 1. His birthday was on Friday November 21st. Most of the day he was a little cranky hence the picture above, but then we ran some errands and went to Grandma Bowers house to "help" frost his birthday cake. As you can see he is a really good helper at cleaning the dishes. We had a fun day!

Presents From Grandma and Grandpa Brough

Cohen received a package from Grandma and Grandpa Brough in the mail. We opened it up and the most exciting part was the packaging. He sat inside the box for 15 minutes playing with the packing peanuts. He thought they were the coolest things. After a while though he just wanted to eat them.
These 2 pictures are of Cohen spitefully trying to eat the popcorn peanuts while I'm telling him no. And then him screaming above because I took it away from him-he is quite strong willed.

Look what I got!!

As happy as can be!

Laundry basket

This is the only way I get to carry laundry to the laundry room is if he is in the basket. Otherwise he wants to be held and it takes me forever. So now even when we aren't doing laundry he loves to go for rides.
I don't know what's up with the tongue....
Or this sly look on his face...

but he sure looks so cute- I love the things you do Cohen!


Cohen came with Steve and I to vote yesterday- he did really well. Okay I bribed him with fruit snacks, but he loved the I voted stickers. So our state got it right but ultimately our country didn't pick the candidate I wanted. I do really think it is cool that we have our first African American president and that we got to experience this amazing historical event. Now it's time to have him prove himself- so we will see how the next 4 years go!
