Brunch Playdate

We had a fun brunch playdate with Brooke, Jim and Hudson.
Hudson had just gotten a new water table which Cohen thought was AMAZING

Then the boys went for a fun ride in one of Hudson's wheelbarrows

swimming swimming in the swimming pool...

We have really enjoyed the pools in our area this summer. Cohen LOVES the water...
and LOVES to try to drink it (YUCK!!)
It is very fun when daddy takes you in the water to splash splash!

Celebrating baby Hollander

We had a girls only baby shower to celebrate the soon to be arrival of baby girl Hollander. Since finding out Crystal was pregnant in Steamboat it has been fun to help her through the process. I know she is ready for that little one to come out!
We were able to do the shower while Crystal's mom was in town. She made the baby a blanket out of scraps of all of Crystal's old prom dresses and other formal dresses, such a cool idea!
The one time that guessing a girl's waist size is acceptable.
However her mom was a BIT off since it could go around her almost twice! :)
the crew: me, Catherine, Bri, Crystal (and baby Hollander), Crystal's mom, Sparrow and Emily
We can't wait to meet this little one...and learn her name!!

Eating crunchies by HIMSELF!

Cohen learned to feed himself his little snacks that we call crunchiesfirst you have to grab one with chunky little fingers
then you shove all fingers toward your mouth
then you push the fat little fingers in even harder with your other hand
success! then you chew chew chew
and start all over again...
you celebrate after you pick one up and hold it tight in chunky little hands
check to make sure it is still there
then stuff it in
and get fingers out of the way of those sharp little teeth
one happy little eater!

Morning swing time

Cohen and I go for walks or runs each morning before he goes over to his nanny. Some mornings we have time to stop by the park to swing or play in the sand.

First Red Sox Game!!!!

Sam has been waiting to be able to take Cohen to a Red Sox game since he was born. The closest we got last year was the Red Sox bar near us...this year we got a little closer by going to a live game...however here in Colorado not in Boston. Maybe next year we'll make it to Fenway with Cohen. It was a HOT day and we knew we wouldn't last for the full game so we decided to go early to batting practice with Cohen.
Sam and Cohen, he was mesmorized!
He did not want to look for any pictures...too much going on mom and dad!!!
watching BP
So cute in his little Sox hat and shirt...crazy to think I bought this shirt for him last summer when I was at Fenway before he was born!
he is such a wiggle worm...now that he can crawl all he wants to do is get down on the ground
standing in the seats and entertaining people around us is pretty fun too
Big Papi brings his little one out on the field to warm up. SO adorable.
what a fun first ballpark outing!

Red Sox in Colorado

Other than the World Series in 2007 (which was GREAT) the Red Sox have not been in town since we have lived here, so we were very excited to get to see them.
Night 1 we went with our neighbor who has amazing seats! (Thanks Peter!!)
Youk and his bald head! (I must admit that one of the highlights of the night was when the two guys to the right of me leaned over and asked what Youk had done to fall out of favor with the fans...this has to do with the fact that when Youk comes up to bat everyone yells Yooooouuuuk but it sounds like boooo but since there were so many Red Sox fans there it was really loud and they thought he was being booed by them)
Lester or as they say in Boston Lestaaah
Varitek...a.k.a Tek
BIG Papi (again the guys next to me first of all confused why the place went nuts when Papi came in...and then also confused as to why he is called Papi)
who has one CRAZY follow through
Well the game didn't turn out as we had hoped but it was a great game down to the last out.
