Thanks Fellow Bloggers

I couldn't have said IT any better myself.

Roll Over Beethoven

He would. 
Cohen would do his first really cool trick when I am gone and Steve is home!
I am with Cohen ALL day every day and as soon as I leave for a one hour soccer practice he 
ROLLS OVER.
I wouldn't have believed Steve when he told me once I got home from practice but...
he had proof!

Cohen's first time rolling over:

Take 2: He's not too sure about it...

 (I love his little coo right before he rolls, like he realized his body was about to roll and there was nothing he could do to stop it because once his head goes...his body follows. And then his cry once he realizes he is face up when only seconds before he was face down. He's probably thinking, "Whoa, what just happened. One second I was lookin at the ground and the next I was facing UP!" What a cutie. I am just so glad that Steve was there to catch this special moment on video! Thanks Love.)
ps. this happened yesterday...7may2012

I WANT to MEET ELLEN!

So if you haven't heard of Ellen DeGeneres' Dance Dare...watch this video! 
(and then youtube others for more laughs) 
BUT PLEASE watch my video of me doing Ellen's Dance Dare...baby style. 
The more views I get the better chance I have of winning. 
So share this video. 
Watch this video. 
Like this video. 
And then REwatch this video.
 HELP ME WIIINNN 
AND 
MEET ELLEN!

HERES the LINK:

ps. I must admit, sneaking up and dancing behind someone while they are shopping is A LOT harder than you might think. Give it a try the next time you go out. Its worth the laughs. 

How the Dance Dare went Down:

SO a trip to Broulims to get some Dr Pepper and dish soap 
(two random things I know, but that was seriously what we went for and all we got!) 
turned into quite the adventure.
 I wish I wasn't in my sweats for this video...but that's what happens 
when you do things 
spur the moment like that. 

Well yesterday we tried to do the dance dare again
but this time planned. 
Meaning I was at least showered and ready for the day. 
We headed to Walmart. 
It was a flop! 

We could not get anyone! 
It was too busy and too open...
also everyone was shopping in couples or groups 
(which is much harder than dancing behind someone solo). 
So we just got some of my fav...Neapolitan Ice Cream and headed to the library on campus
for another shot at it.

We thought the library would be a perfect place to dance behind people
 as they are so focused on their studies and what not. 
Well...
unfortunately my dance buddy 
Cohen 
fell asleep on the way! 
I could not do it by myself...try as I might it just is not the same without my little Cobear.
 And I couldn't bear waking the cutie up either. 

Thus, we went home. 

So it looks like my first dance dare is going to be the one and only...
and I'm crossing my fingers 
that it will take me 
all the way 
to meet 
ELLEN!

IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE

IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE

<3...3 MONTHS AGO TODAY 
MY LITTLE BUNDLE OF JOY ENTERED THE WORLD
ENTERED OUR FAMILY OF TWO TO MAKE IT THREE
ENTERED MY LIFE AND FOREVER CHANGED IT... <3

IT IS CRAZY HOW HAVING A BABY INSTANTLY CHANGES EVERYTHING YOU DO
SUDDENLY THE WORLD IS NOT ABOUT YOU ANYMORE

I CANT EAT UNLESS I KNOW MY BABY IS WELL FED
I CANT SLEEP UNLESS I KNOW MY PRECIOUS SON IS DREAMING SWEET DREAMS
I CANT LEAVE UNLESS I KNOW MY LITTLE BABY BOY IS IN THE TENDER HANDS OF HIS DADDY
I AM CONSTANTLY THINKING OF HIM



AND I WOULDN'T CHANGE ANY OF THIS FOR THE WORLD



COHEN IS MY EVERYTHING...
AND he IS TEACHING me SO MUCH EVERY DAY

TENDER MOMENTS:
THE TENDER HUGS HE GIVES ME EVERY TIME I PICK HIM UP...ESPECIALLY AFTER SLEEPING
WHEN HE SMILES AND COOS, LETTING ME KNOW IN HIS TINY WAYS THAT HE LOVES ME
READING OUR TRAIN BOOK TOGETHER EVERY MORNING IN OUR ROCKING CHAIR
SNUGGLING TOGETHER ON THE COUCH AFTER OUR HOUR OF PLAY IN THE MORNING
WATCHING HIM DRIFT AWAY TO HIS LAND OF SWEET DREAMS
SPLASHING AROUND DURING BATH TIME
GOING FOR WALKS AND ENJOYING THE BEAUTIFUL OUTDOORS TOGETHER
DOING TUMMY-TIME TOGETHER
TELLING EACH STORIES AND HOW OUR DAY WENT
DANCING EVERY DAY TOGETHER JUST AFTER 4 WITH ELLEN
SEEING HIM DISCOVER HIS FINGERS AND TOES
WATCHING HIM AS HE LEARNS AND GROWS

SIMPLY PUT, EVERY DAY, EVERY HOUR, EVERY MOMENT YIELDS A TENDER MOMENT THAT MY HEART WILL CHERISH FOREVER AND FOR ALWAYS.
