Tweets from Daddy (@Cohen)

First off, you may want to get a tissue. I love these but they do make me cry. Who knows if twitter will clear the system some day. I decided I’d blog them so I could have them in my blog book.

Cohen has the best daddy. He use to tweet lots. He tweeted to Cohen and he tweeted to anyone else listening.

I left the date and times by them. The first few were from before Cohen was born. As a reminder, the first two nights, I had to sleep at a different hospital than Cohen and Brent and my brother stayed with him.  I’ll attached the pics he posted with the tweet below the tweet…..

You are truely blessed to have such a wonderful husband and Cohen was blessed to have such a wonderful daddy.

    I love his sense of humor and how positive he (and you!) were throughout Cohen's life!

    My fave: "The baby has landed."

    It's so great that he makes you laugh. That's definitely a good thing in a marriage! :)

    And the "Brent quote of the day" was hilarious!!!

    Crying a river. For real. And holding Elle a little tighter. You are an angel! A precious soul. And, your Brent, is an amazing daddy! I can't wait for Cohen to be a big brother!

    Thank you for sharing Brent's tweets. Made me smile and cry.

    Love the one-liner about the cheese. Although, your four-legged baby might be a little upset he wasn't mentioned with you and Cohen :)
