We had a weekend filled with many firsts!

Friday night we took Cooper out to the movies. We went to see "UP" but only got to see the first hour and 20 min, because it was Coopers bedtime and he was letting everyone know. The part of the movie that we did see was GREAT!

Saturday after running errands in 100 degree weather we thought we would head to Aunt Stefanies to go swimming. Cooper loves the water so we thought he would enjoy it...and he loved it! You will notice that he has a turtle bathing suit with matching shoes and his float is a turtle, all because he loves franklin!!

Sunday we went to Freedom of Faith Festival at Quail Springs. We were excited about this because we wanted to see how Cooper would react to fireworks, but of course again it was his bedtime and he let everyone know, so we didn't get to see fireworks. He did have a great time though being outside with Cousin Caylee and watching all the trees ( he loves trees)!!

Fathers Day

We spent Jacobs first Fathers Day at his parents house. We decided to start a new tradition, that for each new grandchild on their first Fathers Day with Granddad, he would get a new tree to plant. We thought it would be neat for each child to see a tree that was planted the year they were born. Cooper's Tree

Crafts are done

This post has nothing to do with Cooper directly but more indirectly...his room.

Cooper is now 3 months old and I am just now finished with all the projects I had set to do while I was home on maturnity leave. Oh well, better late then never. I would love to be a crafty person like my friend Suzanne but my brain doesn't work like that so, this is all you get from me.

I painted these to match the aniamls on his bedding.

I painted his name, which turned out to be very easy project.

Took me 3 months to frame these pictures that my very talented friend Carisa took!!

This is a picture that my niece Caylee painted.

New Accomplishments

I thought I would share some photos of Cooper and his new big moves!

Cooper has been standing up, with a little help of course. If he is laying down he will try so hard to pull himself up. If you grab his hands he will lift all the way up to a standing position, which always makes him smile! I think he is yelling at daddy here.

Cooper is starting to hold his head up very well. He has also been trying to crawl/scoot but he seems to always get his left hand stuck under him and he gives up.

Cooper has started to use his Bumbo seat which he is not to sure about. He gets very fasinanted with the toy and loves to watch it spin.

Bad Friday

Well, this past friday Jacob was watching Cooper so that my mom could clean my sisters house before they came home from vacation. Normally Cooper will wake up at 6:30 eat, watch Franklin, and fall back asleep. He will wake up from his nap and be ready to eat again at 10. Well, on this particular day when he woke up from his nap and ate....he was mad. Jacob said that he cried from 10 to about 12:15. Usually Cooper is easy to console but not this time. He would not Stop crying!!!! I was at work and I felt so bad for Jacob because when a baby has been crying for awhile you start to get stressed!!

I called the Dr. because I was thinking that it was an ear infection or he was teething (because he drolls ALOT) and we wanted to get in to see her before the weekend. Jacob had a client to meet with so I took off work early and took Cooper to the dr. When I got Cooper, you could tell that he was hurting. He had this sad look on his face and looked so tired. We go into see the Dr. and she said his ears look great, breathing is good, he has a little bit of a temp(from crying) and looks like he is eatting well (weighed in at 16 lbs and 1 oz). Come to find out our poor baby has reflux and it was burning his poor little throat!! I felt like such a bad mom. Needless to say he is taking much much better naps these days and seems to be a much happier baby! Still can't believe he weighs 16 pounds...geez!

New Presents

Every morning after breakfast Cooper loves to watch FRANKLIN! If you don't know what Franklin is its a cartoon about a turtle and all his friends. Cooper will just sit and watch Franklin and sometimes smile, I think he really likes the sounds of their voices. Well, Nana came into town for the week and she brought him a turtle, which we couldn't help but name Franklin. He loves to have long conversations with him and also have stare downs with Franklin, which of course Franklin wins.

On Sunday Cooper finally got to meet a very dear friend of ours, Cassi!! We didn't get any pictures with her because we of course forgot to bring our camera. Cassi was so sweet and brought Cooper a gift from her and her parents. Cooper is already enjoying it and can not wait to see her again! Thank you Cassi, Marty and Mr and Mrs. Brown for the VERY cute OSU blanket!!!!

3 months

Cooper turned 3 months today!

It is so crazy how fast time flies. It feels like yesterday that we were going to the hospital and here it is 3 months later. He has changed so much!! He is now over his colic, sleeping 8 to 9 1/2 hours everynight, holds his head up, will follow you with his eyes across the room, will reach out and grab whatever is in front of him. He is trying to rollover, loves to listen to you read a book and he giggled for his first time ever last night!! People always say to enjoy every moment because it will fly by and now I know what they were talking about because it seems like every morning that he wakes up he has changed. Before I know it we will turn around and he will be 6 months old.
