Party Pictures

Since baby birthday parties tend to be pretty dull for the adults, I asked our families to dress up as a Mother Goose (or other storybook) characters for Cohen's party. I was pleasantly surprised by the creativity and effort of the costumes. I'm sorry we weren't better about photographing each of them but here's a sampling of shots from the party.


I was Old Mother Hubbard and Cohen was 1 of 3 Little Boy Blues at the party.


My niece Makenzie was The Sheep in the Meadow and Brad's nephew Jarom was The Little Mouse from "Hey Diddle Diddle". (Brad wore that mouse costume when he was 3!)


B's brother Sean was the guy that runs through the streets with his nightshirt on. B was Jack the nimble and quick. B's brother-in-law Ty was a fantastic Cat with a Fiddle.


B's brother Scott teamed up with his fiance Lisa and her daughter Madison as The Three Blind Mice, as if you couldn't guess that one.



We had cake...

and opened gifts. (Notice B's mom in the background. She won Best Costume for The Old Woman That Lived in a Shoe.)



And now he's 1! To show us how big he really is

Cohen said his first official word today!

B was on the front lawn with him and after a neighbor's dog barked B said, "Doggy" and Cohen said "Da....gee" in two very seperate sylabols. And then he repeated it over and over every time the dog barked! What a genius!

that is great J and B! What fun! Alec calls our dog "doodoo", not quite saying "do-gee" like your little genius. I love this age. It just keeps getting better and better and more and more fun huh?!

First words are so much fun. Pretty soon he'll be talking your ear off and you and Brad will never be able to have a conversation without interupption.
