Zoo with friends

We went to the zoo with Brooke and Hudson, Bri and Isaac and Brittni and Griffin...little boy parade coming through! Sadly I didn't get a picture of all of us while there, but did get a few other shots:

the lions, which Bri is very skeptical of

Cohen taking it all in

G-man showing us how big he is

Bri and Isaac showing how big they are

and Cohen and I...not so big but we love polar bears!

Here is Cohen watching the polar bear pace back and forth, we were cracking up. What you can't see is the little legs kicking and kicking. Sam and Cohen read this book all of the time...so we call the polar bears Lars (Cohen will probably be confused for life)
Bri and Isaac at the giraffes as requested by grandma Ensing
and the black bears...which ironically Bri loves (lions and tigers and bears OH MY) apparently for Bri it is "lions and tigers OH MY"

Isaac turns ONE!

It is hard to believe that a year ago we were sitting by the pool in Mexico while our little friend Isaac came into the world in the middle of a snowstorm in Denver!
Bri made the CUTEST cake for his birthday
with matching little farm animal cupcakes
the cow close up
Cohen backed himself under the couch, a new trick he does quite often since he can go backward but not forward yet
the guys played some washers out front and were just happy for a nice day
Cohen worked his way over to Isaac's book
and then worked his way right into Isaac's grandma's lap...pretty smooth!
they call Isaac Poohster...thus the balloon
Jill...it's a ROCKSTAR shot! :) (a photo where no one is looking directly at the camera as dubbed by Jilly!)
"dad can you even believe this...she is going to give this thing to me with the fire on top!!"
"oh I want that...I do I do!!"
"hmmm...what is this nose made out of?"
"this is strange!"
"are you sure I can do this?! wow!!!"
I'd say Isaac got the hang of it!!
he looks so grown up
checking out the chickens
and feeding the chickens
what a great day...happy birthday to Isaac!!!

House Changes

While grandma and grandpa were down we did a lot of work in the basement clearing an area for a play area for Cohen and friends.

a large carpet area with a slide and kitchen

and a SWING!

and johnny jump up!!! woo hooo!! grandpa hung some shelves to help organize paint and beer making supplies and give us some more storage room

And here are pics of our two big projects from another weekend they came down:

we painted Cohen's bathroom a fun bright green

and added the fun sparkly BATH letters

then we painted the masterbath to match the bedroom and got some fun beach themed stuff for the counter

I also finally hung my beach frame that I love

much much improved from the blah tan color it was!

Weekend with G&G

Grandma and Grandpa came down for the weekend while Sam was in London to hang out with us...which is always very hard to convince them to do! :)
Cohen and grandpa
grandpa can really make him laugh!
then we had to show off our drumming...
more drumming...
and some more!
and of course a little jumping as well
and a stare down with uncle David which was so funny!!

Funny Food Face

Cohen had a week doing this very funny lip thing while eating. We would just crack up the entire time...and one night we decided we needed to capture it on film/video...enjoy:

7 Months Old!!!

Cohen is now 7 months old...time sure is flying!
He now is eating many different foods: peas, carrots, squash, green beans, sweet potatoes on top of his rice cereal and oatmeal.
He loves to make all kinds of noises and works on new ones daily.
He loves to read books...and the way he reads books is by tapping on each page.
He LOVES his jumperoo more than any other toy.
And we sure LOVE him!!

he's VOCAL!!

Cohen has really found his voice lately...it cracks us up. Here are a few samples:

Grandma's Birthday

We went up to Loveland to celebrate mom/grandma's birthday and Cohen got gifts...funny how that works!
grandma and grandpa had found this bunny that lights up for Cohen
he was mesmorized
then as with everything else he shoved it in his mouth
hamming it up for pictures
laughing at the dogs at the door who really wanted to come in and play with him
play time with daddy is always great!
so are kisses from daddy
check out the rosy cheeks!
this kid gets no attention
especially from these two!
talking to grandpa
getting ready for a family photo
the Troge trio
our little family
we went out to dinner to celebrate and Cohen had a ball with Jim and Tammy...Jim makes crazy faces that Cohen thinks are hilarious
he can't take his eyes off of him
and the birthday brownie plate
wish time
floor time with Cohen
laughing with daddy
