So...my baby boy Kohen is only one month away from his 1st birthday and he is getting so big. I think I have already gone off on how I can't believe how fast this last year has gone a few posts ago. The first year of his life he grows and changes at such a quick rate. Anyhoo!...he has started making this really funny face. I don't quite know what it means yet but I think it might mean he is sad, or mad, or I think he just might be doing it because he gets a reaction from me. Either way it is so funny that I wanted to get it on camera and share it.

Adi came up to me today with the rock band microphone and asked me, "Introduce me, Mama!". Some of you might have seen our post of her singing with the microphone a couple months ago. Anyhoo...I introduced her and she sang me twinkle twinkle little star and then I thought of a funny thing. Well, every time we play rock band she always wants us to play 'Crush,Crush' by the band Paramore. Anyway...she loves it and has come to know the words really well. So after she sang twinkle, twinkle I asked her if she wanted to sing Crush Crush...she said yes! The video is of her singing and then her score that she got. She even was dancing a little bit while she was singing...so funny! She got 77% on the video and then asked if she could sing it one more time...she then got an 80%. She is a freakin' ROCK STAR! I love her so much...she cracks me up!

I think I should be hired to recruit people to read this book. I have not only gotten my sisters and mom to read the twilight saga but this last week was my sister in laws b-day and I got her the book as well so she would have no excuse not to read it. I got my friend Brooke to read it or at least she said she was going to read it. Jeff's grandma turned 94 this last weekend and I thought that I might even get her the book. She has lots of time on her hands being a wise old woman she might enjoy the excitement of reading Twilight...Jeff said no! Too bad...I even, sad to say, told a complete stranger. I was in Walmart in the book isle and she said something like..." She told me the name of the book was like TWILIGHT or something." So I heard that and guess what I did next..."It is down at the end, it's the book with the apple and hands on it!" She looked at me like I was crazy but then asked me more. She was thinking of buying it for her niece and wanted to know if it was an adult book and too mature for a 12 year old. I told her it would be fine and that she would even enjoy it...she said" Her birthday isn't for a few days so maybe I will read it before I wrap it and give it to her." I then said"DO IT! You will enjoy it I promise." I think I could have said even more than that but that's the just of it. I know I am totally nuts! I haven't had any complaints from anyone who had read it yet so I don't think it's that bad,right? ...but seriously I am sharing my obsession of this book with anyone and everyone that I come in contact with. Sorry if I am getting annoying!...I just enjoy it a ton!

So this morning started a little...uh... rocky. Kohen woke up around 6:30 a.m. I had to give him some medicine for his fever from his contant teething. Well Kohen had gone back to sleep when I heard Jeff jump out of bed. From the way he grabbed his leg I assumed he had a leg cramp....then all the sudden...BOOM...he was down, and landed right on the nightstand on his side of the bed. Jeff, my little sheep, had passed out...I am guessing it is because he got up so fast but as he was falling all I could yell was 'Baaaaabe!' As soon as he had fallen and figured out what just happened he said, ' Well, that's never happened before.' We both laughed! Jeff gave me permission to post our morning fall on the blog. I thought about this fainting goat video I had seen once before and started laughing even more. If you have read this first then you have to watch this video on fainting goats. It is so funny!...Jeff, my poor little fainting goat!...ha ha!

Below is Kohen and mommy after he banged on the side of the shower insisting he get in with me. I gave in and we had a party in the shower!...I guess it is okay that he enjoys it...then he is always smelling like a good smellin' man! Just as it should be!I like my men smellin good!mmm....mmm....mmmm!

Here he is helping Adi color...well...eating the markers but that is helping as far as he is concerned. He has also turned into Adi's little shadow. He actually keeps up with her really well. He is the fastest little crawler. Adi gets on the floor sometimes and crawls around with him and he thinks it is so funny. He has been pulling himself up for awhile now and he is getting braver when it comes to whole walking thing. He took 5 steps last Thursday but is stubborn at showing it off. Jeff and I try to get him to walk to us but he just wants to get to us the fastest way he knows and that is crawling. He takes one or two steps and then falls down to his knees for the rest of the way. Little stinker!...I am constantly trying to get him to walk but he is so stubborn...I think he gets that from both of his parents. Either way though...he is almost 11 months and will most likely be walking before his 1st birthday...We are so proud of our BIG man!
His hair is crazy curly too! As it has been getting longer the curls have just been getting tighter and more and more crazy...but WE LOVE IT! I think it is so cute and I am wondering...if I cut it than I will cut the curl off and that will be that. I told Jeff that I would like to keep it as long as I could. As long as people don't mistake him for a girl...then I might have to give it up. Jeff calls him 'wings' sometimes because the curls flip out right above his ears. It is funny...it is kinda like a baby mullet,by definition... The top of his hair is still straight and all 'business' and his curls are his 'party' in the back. Case in point...BABY MULLET!

I got a bit annoyed sometimes but I expected that I would get over it...Jeff really was awesome at letting me have this weekend to devote to reading. Thanks Jeff! I love you...I will make it up to you...I promise...wink! wink!
Jeff got crazy with his facial hair too...you all saw his beard that he was growing...I liked it until he started adding a mustache...I don't enjoy kissing a porky-pine! When he did shave off the beard he went a little crazy with his side burns. I am glad to say that he is back to normal now... but I think he might try the beard thing again in the winter...he must be thinking that it makes more sense when it is cold...what?...a winter coat for his face? Hmm...
Adi got inventive with her pretending! She wanted a cape so she could be SUPER ADI! She is getting so smart and has such an imagination. She turned into quite the chatter box this weekend. Having an opinion on everything. If she didn't have much to say she would just repeat what Me or Jeff had just said and then add her two sense. Crazy kid! She would come find me, if I was reading in my room, and poke her head in every now and then and just ask," You okay momma?" I would say yes and she would run away. Seriously...crazy kid! I don't know who she got that from!...Hee hee!
I don't think Jeff would agree but I had a great weekend...thanks again babe for letting me go crazy into my book. I am so happy and sad that I was able to finish it. Once again if there is anyone who wants to read something great and have an escape you should pick up these books. They really are amazing! Woo hoo! I am crazy and am not afraid to share with whoever wants to be crazy with me! Just one favor...if you do read it and want to talk to someone about it...call me! I love talking about it anytime anywhere!...

As you Can see Kohen is getting his front teeth in.
I was also growing out a beard just to see how it looked. I was at about 2 weeks in the pic I went about 4 more days and shaved it down to the normal under the chin thing that I always have. I think this winter I will grow another one for a month or two.
