I have a lot to catch up on.....

So yes, I've been slacking. But A LOT has been going on! Jeff's family was in town, Cohen's blessing, I went to Albuquerque, I went back to work, and now Cohen's 2 months old!! I swear, the next time I blog I'll be saying that he's 2 years old! :( So I guess this one will be about Jeff's family being in town...

It was so much fun having them here! It was Jeff's parents, sister Jenny, sister Jessica, and our nephew Blake. So Cohen got to meet two of his aunts, and his cousin!! It was so cute watching Blake with Cohen. Blake called him "Coco"!! It was really cute! The friday they all flew in, Jeff had to work. So we spent the day shopping and hanging out. Saturday was really fun. Jeff, Bob, Jenny and Jessica went to the Street of Dreams. While Gail and I hung out, and played with the kids. Then later we all went downtown to the Waterfront. It was really nice taking them there. They seemed to really like it! And the weather was beautiful!






















Blake was having a great time playing in the water...


















While Cohen was loungin' with Grandma Gail!!


Everynight we took Cohen in the Pool at their hotel. The first time, I was kinda nervous. But I thought that the worst that could happen would be he would scream his head off. Well the complete opposite, actually! He loved it!! He just completely chilled in my arms!




Then on Sunday, September 14th, Cohen was blessed. This was a very nice day. So many people came to support him, and it meant soooo much to us. Jeff did a wonderful job, and I was very proud of him. That day was just so special. Many people don't know, but we (the Graham family) have a very special blessing dress that everyone is blessed in. And I mean EVERYONE. The dress is made out of my grandpa's parachute from when he was in World War II, and his mom had made it for his children to be blessed in. So his kids, which is my dad and his siblings. Also all of their kids, which are my siblings, and all my cousins, and now all of our kids, which happens to be Cohen! So there's like fifty some babies that have been blessed in that dress. It's just awesome to have something like that in our family!


So that's that! We had a great time with Jeff's family. I'm soooo happy they came! Next time we see them will be Thanksgiving, and Cohen will be 4 months old!!! Crazy!
