4th of July

We survived the 4th of July. The neighbors started in early with their fireworks and we got a chance to see how Cohen would react. He's always been so sensitive to noises and he did about what we expected. Whenever one went off he would stop whatever he was doing and run and cling to one of us.

 After naps we headed over to my brother and sister-in-laws for a BBQ. The weather was perfect, warm but not too hot. Ezra decided it would be a good idea to blow out his diaper while I was feeding him and it required an entire outfit change on my part. After that he spent most of the time sleeping and getting held while Cohen played with his cousins and ate practically an entire bag of Doritos.

Ezra also got to spend some time with his cousins. It's so different having a baby that can be held and passed around instead of trying to hide him and being super paranoid about germs.

Once more fireworks started going off we decided to take Cohen home and put him to bed after we continued to find him clinging to anyone and everyone anywhere near him. Our goal was to have him asleep before the big fireworks started going off and he was completely overstimulated and wound up. It worked! We put him in bed with a fan and a noise machine and he went to sleep and didn't wake up. It was pretty much a miracle.
