Oh Cat!

Cohen likes to snuggle his Cat when he wakes up, either in the morning or from nap time.

My friend Megan came to visit. Last time she was here she and Cohen were quite the little buddies so he was excited to see her again. We made a sign to hang in the frame in the guest are a few of the takes:

I don't know how I don't have any other pics of the vist since we played and played and played but here are Megan and Cohen at the zoo. They shared some cotton candy and watched lots of the animals. We look forward to more visits.

29 months with frog guy

Our little man is already 29 months old! I now have to stop and actually calculate how many months old he is as after 2 you tend to just say 2...but for the purpose of frog guy he is 29 months old.  

Cohen loves his CAT, he sleeps with him always (I think his little mind would be blown if he knew there are actually 5 cats in our house!)
Cohen loves playing trains, building tracks, and has started making more of his own train sounds and coming up with who is riding certain trains. He and daddy have often created fancy new tracks by the time I get home at night.
Cohen is really starting the "by myself" phase of his life and one I am sure we will be in for some time. Teachers of classrooms of kids this age are SAINTS. :)
We love this little kiddo, the more he understands and talks the more laughs we have as he is figuring out his world around him.

Stock Show

I had a bunch of free tickets to the stock show from a work event we did so we gathered some friends and enjoyed checking everything out.
 Cohen and Lincoln enjoying the tractors
 then the petting zoo
 that Cohen LOVED!
 I was surprised because I thought he'd be a little freaked out but he loved feeding the animals
 and petting them
 there were pigs and goats and alpacas
 they had brushes that the kids could brush them with
 then we did the pony ride
 so cute!

 loved this pic of climbing in boots!
 here are the boys waiting for the train ride
 Cohen and Lincoln raced to the engine
 and Griffin grabbed the caboose
 they all waved every time they came around
 Cohen also had his first cotton candy, which he LOVED, thanks to Lincoln for sharing
 checking out the llamas
 I had to wear my new cowboy hat that I got for my work event
and here is my fun with photoshop pony pic

Meeting baby Levi

Ok so this photo isn't even in focus but my stupid camera died and it was the only one I could get at the hospital. We were so excited to add a new boy to our growing gang of boys. Levi Joshua Helland arrived on January 4th to proud parents Jesse and Sparrow.
Cohen was very excited to go to the hospital to see him, but we soon realized that Cohen and Grace and Griffin at the hospital won't last many busy busy bodies.
We are very excited to see this little guy grow and be part of his life.
