It seems so long ago that Noah was 8 months old! But in other ways it seems like yesterday. We are blessed to have two happy boys! Don't get me wrong, they have their moments, but generally speaking they are happy! People ask me if Cohen is like Noah when he was a baby. I think the only thing that is comparable is that he is just as good-natured as Noah was. BUT, that might be it! I say that because Cohen is one wiggle worm. Very curious. Always wanting down. Doesn't like being held. Noah was and still is VERY cautious. Not a daredevil. Kind of weenie. But we love him for that! Cohen is different. He is already into all kinds of stuff and he can't even crawl yet! I think he will be one curious boy. I don't blame him. He wants to do what his big brother is doing. Cohen loves Noah and Noah loves Cohen. Gosh, I hope it is always like this ;)!

Snow Snow Snow!!!

We almost got a foot of snow here in Forney! And boy did we take advantage of it!
Building Noah's first snowman!
He loved the snow!

Finished proud!

We asked Noah what he wanted to name him and he said "Snowman!"

The snow was still coming down!

This morning...even more snow!

Down our street...

Our house...

And "Snowman"!

I am officially ready for spring!

8 months!

Wow! is he really already 8 months?! 4 more months, and, I don't even want to say it, he'll be a 1 year old! He is growing way too quickly!!! At 8 months he is:
-Saying dada alot! He has even said it to Aaron a couple of times...makes Mama sad ;)
-We think he has even said Hi a few times.
-Dancing...which entails bobbing up and down while sitting. So cute!
-Rolling around all over the place...quickly!
-Still not crawling but is just fine rolling everywhere!
-Loves when we sing to him or read books.
-Has really started loving Chester especially when he licks him in the face.
-Still eating baby food, but more of it!
-Weighs 20 lbs. Not sure about is height. His next well visit is next month.
-He has begun spotting the tiniest things on the carpet and tries to pick them up. Time to start vacuuming more frequently!
- He is as wiggly as ever! Does not like being held too much because he just wants down to play!
-He is absolutely too big for his carrier and needs to be in the big boy car seat, but Mama doesn't want to face reality that her baby is growing!
Here is my BIG 8 month old:
{I promise I didn't pose him like this....he did it himself!}

More smiling!

Very excited!

See how nice and round my head is looking???

Couldn't stop taking pictures!

Love this one!

He's trying to go somewhere!

And with his dada!

{Name that shirt, Siggies!}

On a different note:Please be in prayer for Jenny. She is the sister of our close friend, Jonathan Ross. She is in critical condition in ICU with sepsis. It started as the flu and pneumonia and worsened from there. She is only in her early 30's, has a husband and 9 year old daughter. Pray for complete healing and for all the family that surrounds her, for strength and peace. Thanks so much!
