“Four dogs and a baby”, of course, is the answer to the question: why hasn’t Kate been doing much blogging these days? The only reason I even have enough time to write this post is because we have finally hit that “sweet hour” of the evening… everyone is asleep!
Jett is sprawled out on the couch, Sawyer is lounging on the ottoman, Tucker is curled up in a ball on the loveseat, Piper made a bed on the papasan chair under a throw blanket, and Cohen wrapped up like a burrito in his swing.
ahh,…the sound of silence…what a relief.
I am more tired than I knew possible and also more fulfilled than ever. Its a beautiful, hard, exhausting season of life full of cooing and every type of newness imaginable! Cohen is growing like crazy and I am enamored with him. He looks more like a mixture of us both now and everyday he looks more and more like himself..undefined by comments like “he has mommy’s nose” or “look at that mcdonald chin!” He is also AMAZINGLY strong…he has rolled over three times, he can push his head and shoulders up off the couch when we lay him on his tummy…and SERIOUSLY, he can support his own weight for about a second with very little help from dad..and he is only 7 weeks old! IF he had been born on time, he would only be 3 weeks…its WILD. My family thought we were making it up, but now everyone has seen him do it..we are going to have to get it on video since its so hard to imagine…
Anyway, there is no doubt we are in for it when he starts..crawling..or walking or climbing..whatever comes first!
My brother Aaron and his soon-to-be-wife are in town visiting, so I don’t want to be on here long…More later
