Happy Birthday Cohen!

My little dude is 7 today! I can't believe it! He is such an amazing little guy, and I couldn't have asked for a better son. He cares so much about his sisters, and is always careful to include them and care for them. He cares about his friends, and always wants the best for everyone. He is still ok with hugging me, and when I'm feeling down he is always the first to sense it, and he'll hug me and tell me how smart and beautiful I am. He is funny - always telling jokes and trying to make everyone laugh. And how smart! He reads for hours every day now (at the breakfast table, even... reminds me of someone...), and is really intuitive about how things work. He is thoughtful - and creative! I love how hard he tries to think of new things to build and create.

Your entry into this world, Cohen, was not a smooth one, but you have been such an easy child to parent and love. I couldn't have asked for a better start to motherhood - you gave me the confidence to believe I could be a good mom to more than one child! Also, 6.5 years of incredible sleeping habits have been greatly appreciated (there was 6 months, when you were about 3, that were awful, but I forgive you!), and I especially appreciate that you seem to have taught both of your sisters how to be good sleepers as well! Nice work! You inspire me every day, and I love counting the freckles on your nose. I still smell your hair whenever we hug - I've been doing that for 7 years now, and I probably won't stop for a long time. I am still jealous of your eyelashes... sigh. I think that it's a little unsettling that you're almost as tall as I am. Good grief! Thanks also for helping to curb the swearing in our house - you have been smacking us every time we swear since you were 3. That's 4 years of smacking us. We're a little slow to learn - thanks for being patient! Don't worry - in about 6 years, I have a feeling we'll be able to reciprocate. You were the most unexpected surprise in my life, and every single amazing thing that has happened in the last 7 years is because you came into my life. I hope that you understand and appreciate one day what an amazing feat that is.

Happy Birthday, sweet child. I am extremely excited for the next year of your life! 2nd Grade!

How is it July? Really, how? Where is my life going? Zip, zoom, months, just disappearing!

Things are good. Luci, darling, sweet, wonderful girl, got 6 teeth in 2 weeks. It was really, really fun, I tell ya.

Lili, on the other hand, lost 2 in a week. Now she's more adorable than ever. If possible.

Cohen is growing up on me. Done grade 1, riding a bike, and more mature than I ever was at that age.

Me... busy planning weddings and dreaming big. As usual. Working too much, then coming home and working more. I no longer sleep - I collapse. It's ok though - I feel I'm on the right path.

Ian - I have no idea. I sometimes see him when I wake up in the morning. Apparently, we're still happily married. That's what the text he sent me said, anyways. Vacation looms - we'll actually have time together!

That's it, that's all, I have a client consult in an hour, need to prepare!
