Carson is 6 Months Old

My sweet Carson turned 6 months old yesterday ( I am such a slacker for not posting this yesterday). Unless he is pain or hungry or tired he is super happy and easy going. I love this chunky smily baby. I can't believe it has been six months since he was born, it is still so fresh in my memory. He loves to jump in his jumper. He is super ticklish and loves to tear apart paper or anything that makes a crinkly sound. He loves to pound his hands on tables and he is trying to grab at everything. He loves to be walked around in his carrier and that is the only way I vacuum my house. At his last appointment he weighed 19.2 ponds so we will see how much he weighs at his check up on the 1st. I can't remember our lives without little Carson- he totally belongs to our family and we adore our baby!

My Cohen Turns 2!!!!

Where does the time go? I can't believe my baby is 2 today. He is such a blessing in our lives and I feel so blessed to be his mommy. The day started out with having a sleep over at Grandma and Grandpa Bowers house. Including watching Frosty last night and Mickey Mouse pancakes for breakfast. Then came a super fun date with his best friend- his DAD. Steve took Cohen on a carousel ride and then rented a car stroller and let him "drive" around the mall. They had lunch and then Steve took him to Target and let him pick out a truck and his musical birthday card.
Cohen came home after his sleep over to like 20+ balloons and thought that they were totally awesome- In the pictures below you can see he has one in each hand standing next to his big 2 balloon.
He had a party tonight including Grandma and Grandpa Bowers, Rob, Holly and their kids and Heather and Danny. It was quite the wild crowd. It started off with yummy pizza. Followed by breaking open a basketball pinata which Cohen actually didn't like until the candy came out (he was crying because they were breaking his ball). He had a sports ball themed party which he loves balls- any kind and he can name them all for you too. Then it was present time. He is so tired by this point because he decided not to nap today. So he was cranky at the beginning of opening presents until he realized all the fun things he was getting. We got him a table and chairs for his room. He got a hand made quilt and book from Grandma and Grandpa Brough. Coloring stuff and puzzles from my parents and Rob and Holly, games from my sister and brother-in-law. He got lots of cards from other family members. Then it ended with cake and ice cream. My mom made this awesome football cake and basketball and baseball cupcakes- they were soooo cute and soooo yummy. Cohen had a great birthday. Thanks so much to everyone who made his day special. We love you sweet boy- you are such a joy in our lives!!!

Happy Boy

My sweet happy boy! My Carson is so happy- I actually don't mind getting up at 3 am to feed him, he is always talking and the second he sees you he has the happiest smile on his face. We have been battling some serious cradle cap and ezcema on his face and head the last month or so. It was so bad that half of his face and head were puffy and red and peeling. I hate when someone comes up to you and looks at your baby like he is diseased and says what's wrong with him? NOTHING! Seriously can't they just look at him and see how cute and happy he is. Anyway these pictures were taken yesterday and his face has been getting way better thanks to a crazy daily routine of washing his hair twice a day and using all kinds of creams and lotions and a new water softner. So thankfully now he looks like he has just a little dry skin.
Carson is just happy to do his own thing, he isn't really interested in rolling or playing with toys. He does like to hit things that make noise and is close to sitting up. The other day at the doctor's office Cohen was jumping up and down and Carson was hysterically laughing, it was so cute and I love how he is becoming a little more aware of what is going on around him. He is such a cuddly baby I am loving this age.

Pumpkins, Hallomeen, and so much more

Cohen is still totally obsessed with Hallomeen as he calls it. This morning he was saying Hallomeen hallomeen and then he would say trick or treat. For some reason he just loves it. I have been trying to tell him that Thankgiving is next and he should say gobble gobble for a turkey. And he will and then immediately after he says Hallomeen. I have also been trying to teach him about Christmas- I did get him to say Santa says HO HO HO!
The other super funny thing Cohen is doing right now is making animal noises. What does a pig say Cohen- oink oink, what does a horse say Cohen- meigh, what does a cow say Cohen- boo, what does a apple say Cohen- mmmmm- hahaha!!! Steve and I ask him that all the time because it is sooo funny. Didn't you know apples made a sound!?!
The other thing he loves are pumpkins. He has been asking Steve to help him carry this pumpkin around which Steve was more than willing after Cohen says "help you peese" Meaning he wants Steve to help him. But after like 10 trips around the house Steve finally told him no more. So Cohen proceeded to roll the pumpkin around the house it was a lot of work but he loved it.
Cohen also plays with "baby's water" which means baby's bath tub. He thinks it's a boat- I love the imagination!
