Santa Came

Look at that happy face!

Cohen got a bike form Santa- can you tell he was excited. Carson got and activity center and sports arena. To be honest I don't have any pictures of Carson on Christmas morning- it's probably because I was taking pictures and holding Carson and Steve was video taping. So we do have lots of video of Carson Christmas morning. He was loving his toys and all the paper. Carson got overwhelmed by everything really fast and so he took a nap pretty early this morning. Cohen is still playing with toys right now and loving all of them.
One of the biggest hits of the morning was the gifts form Grandma and Grandpa Brough- they got Cohen a Little People Garage and Carson A Little People Noah's Ark. Of coarse Cohen LOVED his garage and has been playing with it like crazy. He also thinks Carson's toys are his and when we say no that is Carson's he says "no". That will be a work in progress.
Steve and I really enjoy watching our boys on Christmas morning- we always have a great time. Top it off with some orange rolls and it is awesome!

The PJs

Okay so the cutest pjs ever! They coordinate and they have matching slippers- I know right?!?
Cohen has Santa ones and they say ho ho ho- he loves them and when you ask him what is on his feet he says Frosty shoes- he loved them so much he wore them to bed last night!
Carson was sooo cute! His said "Dear Santa I Can Explain"! HaHaHa! And he looks like a little candy cane jail bird. I was so excited to get him in the middle of the night so I could see his cute pjs and his chunky little body that filled them out!
Doesn't he look so happy!

Christmas Eve 2009

Christmas Eve started with us going over to Rob and Holly's house. It was fun to see them before they left to tulsa for Christmas. Then over to my parents house. Christmas Eve dinner was amazing, we had the ham and all the fixings. Followed by the traditional pudding(in this case homemade ice cream) contest. I won yeah- and no it was not rigged! My sister Heather and her hubby Danny aren't coming for Christmas so we opened all their presents- the big hit of the night the Handy Manny tool set they bought Cohen- yeah he loves it. As tradition we all opened pajamas and our ornaments for this year. We all had a great time.

Carson loves the wrapping paper.

When we got home we put Carson to bed and read a Nativity Book with Cohen and sang songs. It was a perfect night-we can't wait for Santa to come!

Yeah Cohen's first snowman. As I have mentioned earlier he is totally obsessed with Frosty and Rudolph- he sings the songs and it is so cute. So when it snowed really well Steve (being the cool dad that he is) battled the FREEZING cold and took Cohen out to build Frosty. The snow had an icy layer so they couldn't roll Frosty they had to pack the snow. So he didn't end up being huge, but Cohen size. Cohen was smiling and laughing and singing the Frosty song the whole time. We got this cute snow man kit form the Children's Place that helped us make him look just like Frosty.
What a cute snow man my little man!

As I mentioned earlier the snow had an icy layer- here Cohen is walking on... snow! It would freak him out every time he would actually fall in the snow. Like how I bundled him- we had no snow clothes so I managed the best I could. He was not bothered at all by the cold. He just had a BLAST!!!

Brotherly Love

Oh what cute brotherly love. If you ask Cohen to hug Carson... well he does- that's right he is starting to follow commands now! Now I start putting him to work- hey Cohen go shovel the driveway- j/k!
Carson LOVES Cohen- he gets a little panicked sometimes, but I think it's because he feels like Cohen is going to squish him. The question is who wouldn't squish Carson- he is so squishy and lovable! Thank heavens Cohen is gentle with him!

2 Year and 6 Month Check Ups

Cohen was 10% for weight at 24.4 lbs.- yeah at least he is on the charts. 78% height at 34 inches and 66% head size. He is healthy and looks great. He does need to gain weight since his percentages aren't in the same range- it is always a work in progress.
In this picture he is singing Frosty the Snowman- it goes like this Frosty the noseman has happy jolly soul, mumble mumble mumble and then he starts all over again. It is so freaking cute.

Carson is 71% weight at 18.8 lbs, 81% height at 27 1/2 inches and 65% head size. He always seems to have some kind of issue at these appointments. 1. BRONCHITIS- what? Poor baby I just thought he was stuffy, but I guess it is junky in his lungs, what does that mean? Nebulizer treatments at home every six hours- super fun. 2. EAR INFECTION- what again? What am I the worst mom and have no idea he was this sick? So what does this mean oh yes 10 days of antibiotics. 3. SHOTS- I hate shots it means fevers and cranky baby. Along with this are his teeth just about to erupt, and eczema which is a lot better but still an issue. So my life consists of Carson waking up having a nebulizer breathing treatment, shoving antibiotics down his throat, washing his hair ad putting like 3 lotions on him and then shoving tylenol down his throat- then it all happens again at night-pretty sure I can't wait for this routine to end!
What makes it all worth it- look at my cute happy baby. He is up a lot at night, but can you blame the poor kid he can't be very comfortable. I seriously adore this happy boy- I can't squeeze and hug him enough! He is just such an angel.

I love both my awesome boys- I feel so lucky to have them!
