March for Babies Afterparty

After leaving the Seattle Center, we walked back to our hotel and got everything packed up. We really wanted to see one of Cohen's nurses but she was working that day so we swung back by the NICU on our way out of town. It was so wonderful to get to see some of our nurses. I think it's fun for them to see their little babies growing up. There was an isolette in the hallway and Cohen was very interested in it. It was an amazing visual to how far this former 1 lb 8 oz baby boy, whose whole body Heidi used to fit through the little doors on the side, has come.

When we finally got home, we threw all our stuff in the house, gathered up some food and headed to my brother Joel's house for a BBQ for my mom's birthday. Cohen was so happy to finally be able to crawl around and move after being stuck in his stroller or carseat for the majority of the day.

We had taken Cohen to the store one day and he was just smiling and hamming it up for this lady who was clearly paying no attention to him. It's funny because he doesn't actually go that many places, but apparently he is used to getting a lot of attention as evidenced by this picture.

My dad has been super busy out at work, so we were pretty excited to get to see him. He had to work Saturday so he didn't get to go to the walk, but he wore his shirt to work.

The young master fell apart shortly before dinner was ready. I had been planning to take him home for bed but didn't want to miss dinner. So we tried to put him in a pack n play and he wasn't having any of it. So I ate quickly and took him home to bed. The minute he hit his own bed he was out. We missed out on cake, but I think Cohen really needed his own bed. Ok, now that you have enough pictures to last awhile. I'm going to take a little break and catch up on a few other things...I'll be back in a few days.


  1. It looks like you had a really amazing weekend. I love the picture of the isolette, so cool to see how Cohen has grown :) I also love the picture of him with your dad, so sweet!

  2. Love all of this! Fantastic that you were involved in the it! Cohen is so cute!
