Cohen’s First Cold – and other news!

Well, we’re now in the midst of dealing with Cohen’s first cold (or as the doctor called it – upper respiratory infection). It’s been pretty sad to see our snotty little boy deal with the not so fun sniffles, coughs and sneezes. It has also made for some pretty gruesome days and nights lately. He has recently started a “wakeful” trend of wanting to get up for the day around 2:30 a.m. Add the cold to that, and it’s been pretty exhausting. We have had to elevate his mattress the last 2 nights to help with the stuffiness and his breathing, but now the issue is that he wiggles his way down his crib and under his blanket. He gets all ticked off and wakes up YELLING! After 2 days of pretty high fevers, I am hoping that today is better. Grandma is coming to visit us in a little bit – she’s been in Philadelphia for work since Sunday, so she hasn’t seen Cohen. He can’t wait!

My nose won't stop running!

Other than this cold we’re battling, we were able to have some fun last week when the weather was GORGEOUS! We got out and took our first walk as a family. Moe loved being able to get out and run around and Tim and I were also happy for the exercise! Cohen seemed to enjoy them, too. He was a little unsure during the first walk – but by the next day, when we went in the afternoon with friends, he was loving it! He is a little confused by wind, but other than that he does great!

Cohen has been coming to work with me every few days when we don’t have a sitter. For the most part, he does pretty good there, but I know that won’t always be the case! He is turning out to be quite the executive!

Cohen and I spent some time last week over at my friend/co-worker Emily’s house. Her daughter, Brinlee is just twelve days older than Cohen! They had a great time playing together and they introduced us to Cohen’s new favorite show on Disney…Jungle Junction!

Watching Jungle Junction together!

Last week was Cohen’s first St. Patrick’s Day. We had a fun day – first he went to work with me – and then we hung out with Emily and Brin for a bit before having dinner with Grandpa and Daddy! Grandpa always makes corned beef, cabbage and potatoes. Cohen can’t wait to try it when he’s a little bigger! Although, from the picture, he looks like he’s already been indulging in meat and potatoes!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

We are still loving the playmat and have been trying to up our tummy time – but he’s not so keen on that yet! We’ll get there, though. He’s getting very strong and loves to smile and kick his legs!! When he’s on his playmat, he’s gotten very good at grabbing at the different rattles! One of his favorite toys right now is his crinkle book. It’s fun to watch him grab at it and yell at it! We have even tried out the exersaucer once and he did pretty well! He is still a little wobbly and I put a pillow under his feet since he couldn’t yet reach..but he sure did like trying to lick all the different toys on it!

I’ll leave you with one last pic of our little guy sitting on the couch, showing me how he can be “serious!” SO CUTE! It’s hard to choose which pictures to include in these posts – We take a ridiculous amount each day! Thanks for checking in!
