New Door

Sure would have loved a brand new front door, but that is definitely not in the budget.  A can of paint and new door handle is!  It feels new to us and we couldn't be more happy with it!

Splashin' Around

Splash Day at preschool was last Tuesday and the boys had a blast!

To celebrate preschool being OVER and Aaron's NEW JOB {!!!!}, we decided to do something fun over the weekend.  Actually, Aaron decided to, and he surprised us with a night at the Great Wolf Lodge! 

I promise me and Cohen got in the water.  Just never got a picture of it!  We had a lot of fun and are looking forward to spending some time with Aaron's family this weekend/next week in BransonYay for summer!

Before & Afters

Please note that the "Befores" are "professionally" done and I took the "Afters" today. It sure was hard to get an 11 1/2 month old to cooperate, but you get the picture!

As you can see the shape of his face and head changed dramatically. His head was growing out instead of back. Big improvement!

Here is the back. Yes, he has a lot of hair now, but notice his head tilting to the left. It doesn't now since his head is almost perfectly symmetrical!

Our little conehead isn't so much a conehead anymore. Again, he has a lot more hair, but you can really see a big change now!

Same for this one too! The top of his head was so sloped but, that isn't the case anymore!

We couldn't be more pleased with the results after 5 1/2 months of helmet wearing! He has done perfect without it of course. Except for when he bumps his head into things expecting it not to hurt! We knew that was going to happen! He sure does look like a different baby to us now! We are still getting use to not seeing him in it! I sure do love snuggling with him now without him banging his big helmet in my face. We will not miss the helmet one bit!

Here is a little video of Cohen pushing Noah on his tricycle!

Well, school is winding down for us. Next week is the last week! And our preschool program is this Thursday evening. Hard to believe another school year has come and gone. We are very excited about summer and Cohen's first Birthday! Won't be too much longer! Enjoy the rest of spring!

11 Months!

Yikes! One month til you are one! Can't believe it! Here are some of our favorite things about you, Cohen!
-You are a walking fool. You prefer to walk rather than crawl and you have gotten pretty good at it.
-You love to follow your big brother around everywhere and strangely enough he doesn't seem to care. {I have a feeling that it might be different in the future!}
-You say mama now! Which is awesome! You have also said Lizzy several times {meaning my sister, his aunt} How she got you to say it, I don't know!
-You still likes baby food but you do eat some table food as well.
-Your favorite thing to eat is the "Lil Crunchies" by Gerber Graduates. That was also your big brother's favorite!
-Your cute new thing right now is dancing. You love your Leap Frog table and love to dance to the music!
-Now that your hair is getting longer you have curls in the back! Too cute!
-You are getting better with your sippy cup but are still taking a bottle. Hopefully you will wean from the bottle to the sippy this next month.
-You still are wearing your helmet but we are keeping our fingers crossed that you will get it off within the next month.
-You are still just the happiest little guy and we couldn't be more happy about that!

We love you Coco!

What's been going on...

Whew! We are busy these days. Especially Cohen. He is almost running. Okay, not really. But if he wants to get there, he will! He hardly ever crawls anymore...he prefers to be just like his big brother! See video...

He will be 11 months in a couple of days. Hard to believe. I will post on that later.

In other news, Aaron {my wonderful, awesome, handsome husband} got laid off at work. Boo. He's taking it pretty well so far and had already began the job hunt. Anyone looking to hire someone who is wonderful, awesome AND handsome? Just pray that he will find something fairly quickly. Perhaps it will be something that he will love! And closer. I know we can't be too picky, but we can hope!

In more, other news, Noah just accepted into Scottish Rite Children's Hospital! For a run down on his leg/foot issue click here. His appt. isn't until June, but we are really excited to see what they say and do about it! And its FREE! Yay!

Anyways, see you shortly for Cohen's 11 month post!
