Talking Talking Talking...and some Laughing!

While staying at my parent's place for Thanksgiving we realized one night that when Cohen thinks he is alone he talks up a storm working on new sounds, etc.

watch the little lips closely as he forms new sounds

this is when he realizes I am filming him

here he is another day talking to us as after eating

and by far the best is when he knows he is we filmed his monitor one night when he went to bed...

we were laughing so hard...he talks and talks and talks then all of a sudden there is a big sigh and he turns his head to the side and falls asleep.

Speaking of laughing...Cohen loves to bounce on the bed!

And one more cute video of his laughing

a grandson is even better!!

Reading Time

Cohen loves reading time...and now he loves holding the books or helping you flip pages while you read. While his, and our, favorite will always be the Sleep Book that we read every night a new favorite is Put Me In the Zoo.

Hands in mouth...

It has already been established that Cohen LOVES his hands...well nothing has changed other than they are now going further in the mouth than ever before!
He is surrounded by toys...yet the hand in the mouth is much more exciting!
his goal is to get as many fingers as possible into his mouth
He often has a red little this one...once he pulls his hand out since he shoves it in so hard!

Tired Tummy Time

We do tummy time to try to help Cohen learn to hold his head up...he goes through waves of holding it up really well...then it grows again and is all floppy...then he can hold it again.
As you can hear...based on the grunts...he works VERY hard at tummy time

then it's rest time! and time to hang out with daddy

Random pics and two cute videos

Here are a few of my latest favorite black and whites...
we were at the Cornells for games and Cohen tried out their vibrating chair...I'd say he liked it!!
the little legs kicking and kicking are a good indication he is HAPPY!
Cohen and his dad both like to grunt when doing difficult tasks to make sure you know they are working hard...tummy time is really hard! :)

Swine Flu...

For Sam's birthday he got the H1N1 shot...we both did...since our little guy is under 6 months old it was very important for us to get it to keep him as healthy as possible. The next morning I came downstairs to get the milk to send with Cohen to his nanny and this is what I found in our fridge:
Sam had labeled the milk pre-shot (moo) and post-shot (oink) so that I would know to send the oink milk with Cohen...HA!

Sam's Birthday

It's crazy to think that this time last year we were just getting to has been quite a year! Sam loves powdered sugar donuts so instead of a birthday cake we created a donut cake.
for safety reasons we did not put 31 candles on the cake!

Happy birthday Sam...we LOVE you!
Sam has wanted one of these rockets since this summer's launch
a pile of weiners...enjoying the birthday celebration as well
Cohen and great uncle Jim...who he LOVES. We have a great video of Cohen talking and laughing with Jim but it is too big of a file for the blog...Jim's face is so expressive and he talks in such a funny voice when talking to Cohen that he LOVES it!! Cohen reading with Auntie Kate

Hands are AMAZING!!!

Cohen has discovered his hands...he LOVES them!
He loves to look at them
and wave them around...and look more closely....
and even MORE closely!!
Sometimes they are so close he has to cross his eyes to see them.
he shoves them in his mouth...
or folds them together!
It is so fun to see what he discovers and the hands have definitely kept us laughing these past few days!
