Coopers 1st Snow

We got 14 inches of snow in Edmond. What a fun way to experience your first snow!

Un-Planned Christmas!

Christmas Eve

Coopers first Christmas went a little different then we had planned. I worked until 7pm on wednesday because I would be taking Christmas Eve off (this is a VERY busy time of year for us so to make coming back to work easier for me I worked late). The weather men told us that a storm would be blowing through on wednesday evening and would be gone by noon on Christmas Eve......hahahhaha, that was a fat joke. 14 inches later santa came!! Since we had planned on leaving town (as you can see in picture there are no presents under tree bc they are all packed up) we had not gone to the store, so for our Christmas lunch we had baked chicken, mashed potatoes and black eyed peas. Even though it was not what we had planned it still was nice just to be the three of us for Coopers first Christmas and enjoy every moment of that day with him. Here are some pictures of Coopers First Christmas!!

Coopers 1st Thanksgiving

Cooper celebrated his first Thanksgiving at Broken Bow Lake with all of Amy's side of the family. Amy's grandma (Cooper's GG) turned 90, so we all got together to celebrate. Cooper got to enjoy mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, greenbeans,crannberry sauce, peas, and rolls......he LOVED all of it! He took his first train ride through the forest, a hayride, campfires and smores, and long walks around our cabin. We really enjoyed being with everyone despite the fact that Cooper received his two front teeth while we were there.

Cooper wanted to start celebrating his 7 month birthday early so he woke up at 6 AM on saturday morning, he usually sleeps till 7 or 7:30. We started off our day as usual with some yummy oatmeal and a bottle and watched some morning cartoons....Olivia, Wonder Pets and then Franklin. We then got ready so that we could take Cooper to a pumpkin patch to pick out his first pumpkin.

Crawling, Teething and More

Cooper has now officially gone through all the vegetables!! He liked all of them Alot which I was so happy for. I am in the process of wanting to start making my own food for him, which will be fun.

Cooper has wanted to start crawling so bad. He will get up on his knees and stick that butt up in the air, but just can't get those arms to work. We bet he will have it down by the end of the week.
Cooper got to finally meet his friend Ella. Ella was born almost exactly a month before Cooper!
We discovered on Wednesday that Cooper got his first tooth. He got his bottom front right tooth, and it is a sharp little sucker! We are hoping that the rest of his teeth are like this one because it came in with no tears just all smiles!
Cooper now weighs 20 pounds and 4 ozs. He is only 2 pounds away from needing a new car seat! Here are a few pictures from the past couple of weeks. He is getting to big too fast!
