Cohen's First Christmas

Nathan and I have had the joy of babysitting my best friend's baby boy, Cohen, who will be 7 months old on Christmas day, several times over the past couple of weeks. He is, as I like to say, "melt-your-heart-precious!" He is the cutest thing you've ever seen!!! He is one of the most pleasant babies you will ever meet because he smiles any time you look at him, he literally laughs and giggles out loud, and he is a cuddler. Could it get any better than that?!?!? Cohen is just now beginning to scoot. He's trying to crawl, but before he will go into an all out crawl, he has decided to scoot. He's beginning to pick up some speed, though, so we don't think it will be long before he will be mobile. Thank you, Kenley and Brandon, for letting us have some Cohen time. We treasure every second! Look at that grin!

Can't you hear his little giggle?!?!

I'm so sorry, Cohen...I won't let Nathan make you watch any more boring news shows. I looked away for one minute, and this is what happened! I'm just teasing...Nathan was so sweet with Cohen. He gave him his bottle and everything! In fact, I was beginning to think Cohen preferred Nathan over me because, well...he did! :-) I'm just teasing again. We had such a good time loving on this precious miracle.

There he goes. He scooted right over to the Christmas tree to check out all the lights. You can see the joy of Christmas all over his face!

I love this picture because it looks like he's waving at me and saying, "Hey!" But, he's really just reaching for the Christmas lights under the tree where he was exploring. That's okay...we'll pretend.

This is a picture of his beautiful Mommy, Kenley-- the very reason he is such a precious baby! She takes such good care of him and nurtures him so well. She makes him so happy and comfortable. I can't wait to see how his personality develops to see if he has her witty sense of humor and excellent and intellectual discernment or if he will be more like his Daddy, Brandon, who is calm, quiet and intelligent, but who likes to joke, too. I imagine he'll be a good combination, but one thing is for sure- Cohen will grow up knowing what it means to love the Lord because he will see it in both of his parents.

And for the grand's the little man with Santa for his first Christmas! What a priceless photo. I love you, Cohen. You've stolen my heart!
