It has been so long since my last update. That is because I actually filmed this when Cohen turned 6 months but second guessed posting it. Now that he’s over the 7 month hill and I should be posting that update instead of this one I feel really guilty about skipping it. As such, here is what’s going on with the baby boy at 6 months old. I am planning to skip over the 7 month update (hangs head in shame) because I am currently feeling swamped with my posting schedule but plan to make up for it at 8 months. I love hearing about babies similar in age to Cohen so I hope you enjoy this video even though it’s late!
I literally can’t believe my baby boy is already 5 months old. I was actually super confused with the counting because I had been counting by weeks the entire time. I was always saying “almost 5 months” but my mom kept correcting me going by the day he was born instead. Who even knows? I say as long as you can wear your birthday suit on your “supposed” 5 month mark then who’s to stop ya, amirite? Because that’s what we do around here when it’s 103 degrees outside and a leaky swamp cooler just ain’t cutting it. Birthday or no birthday really.
I love watching these though because it is so fun to see how little Cohen boy is changing. I honestly didn’t think it would affect me this much but he has really grown in the last month since the previous update. Blowing my hair back as we speak. It’s too crazy. I keep thinking I won’t make another one and then the next month rolls over and another update comes tumbling out. I think I can’t help myself because I secretly hope one day this little boy of mine will click play and see what he was like as a little hunky chunk. I love that kid so darn much it hurts me inside. It’s so scary but true. Okay, now I’m feeling all gushy inside so let’s just move right on over to the video.
This video answers all the questions you may have about me personally. It covers a wide range of topics from my family, husband, life with a baby and what I do for work. These videos were fun to make but it was even more interesting to see which questions you wanted to hear answers for! I hope you enjoy it either way and it’s another long one like Part 1! Here is a link to that video, in case you missed it, that covers all the questions regarding my hair or hair tips in general!

Ever since having Cohen, my life has been forever changed. He is everything to me and having my own little family now is the best thing in the world. Of course, I couldn’t have asked for a better husband and father to help raise this little boy. With as much as AJ already loves and takes care of me, I can only imagine how much he will and already does love this baby Cohen. I love watching him in this new role as Cohen’s dad and how good fatherhood looks on him.One of the greatest things in this world is watching the man who, once upon a time, was your college crush, surprised you with flowers a time or two, secretly decorated your house with Christmas lights, made you laugh til your stomach hurt, and smeared wedding cake on your face with a big frosty kiss… become the father of your first baby boy. It’s been one of the sweetest and most enjoyable experiences of my life. I couldn’t have asked for a better example of what a man and father should be and am so grateful my son has a great example to look up to for the rest of his life. AJ loves this little guy so much and I know Cohen will love and adore his dad more and more as he grows older. To my sweetest husband, it is my greatest joy to see the biggest smile on little Cohen’s face whenever he sees you and to see such adoration in your eyes each time. The love you have for this little family of ours is one of the most powerful things I’ve ever had the privilege of experiencing and I’m so grateful for it every day. I love being able to spend my life with you. Happy Father’s Day to you my love, and to the man who raised you right. And to all the fathers out there, especially to my own dad, who has always made sure that I knew I was loved, even from miles away. As well as to my father-in-law! I am the luckiest to have such amazing men in my life!

I can’t even believe this kid is already 4 months old. I love him even more than the first day I held him and am looking forward to many more months to come. I decided to put together a three month postpartum update and had such a great response that I thought it was only fitting to make a second update. I love knowing that you enjoy hearing about Cohen as much as I love talking about him! If you would like having a monthly update please leave a comment below letting me know!
