this week in Leao Land!!!

We've been busy busy busy! Cohen helps add to the busy-ness these days... Crawling all over the place and being the cutest distraction ever created. He went from scooting to crawling to sitting up by himself to pulling himself up on everything and now is trying to cruise along while holding onto furniture all in a matter of weeks!!! It's insane! He discovered the beach and looooves the water. Its so warm out here in comparison to the water on the west coast. He also enjoys the sand! He loves the pool also. Splashing is his favorite. Oh!!!! Did I mention he is also sprouting his very first tooth!!!! I decided to look just a couple days ago out of curiosity to see if anything was poking through and sure enough!!! Poor little guy. He is handling it like a champ. He is still mostly his happy smiley self but sleeping is getting hard. He wakes up crying which is not like him. He almost always wakes up smiling and talking away happily, but not the last couple days. :( Cohen's little personality is totally coming out now! He is a crack up! He has been scrunching up his nose and smiling soooo big lately!!! And he gets mad now too!!! He tenses up his little arms and scrunches has face angrily and goes grrrrrr. His face turns bright red!!! We can't help but laugh! He does this a lot when I'm combing his hair. He always wants to grab it from me and chew on it. When he gets excited he does a similar thing where he tenses up but he flares his arms wildly and moves his feet back and forth too! He usually does this when I'm vacuuming. He's been doing the normal babbling..."mama" "baba" and "wawa"...but no "dada" yet! He loves going on walks and animals...especially dogs! The other night we were outside just talking and our friend Alicia's dog was chasing after a laser pointer she had and Cohen was just giggling away! 
For mothers day we went to the beach again with our office this time! It was fun with a big group! The office had a great saturday so after the beach we went and got pizza. We are here with a group of great people! Its awesome. Our friends Payce and Gwen are coming this week and we're really excited about that! Well... thats it for now but I will post again soon!!!

Things are great down here! How are things in Tampa? Can you even believe the weather? I was just reading that June is the rainiest month and you can expect afternoon thunderstorms everyday! I need to get to the beach soon, but it's stormy every time we want to go! It looks like you've been successful though!

I'm glad you found my blog! I'll have to add you to mine...I want to keep up with you guys and cute baby Cohen.
