New Tricks

For the past couple of weeks Cooper has been trying very hard to suck on his toes. He discovered his feet earlier this month and ever since has loved holding on to them.
Well thursday night he finally accomplished his goal, Toe in mouth!!!

Cooper also has been trying so so hard to catch those sheep that are always flying around his head while he is in his swing. Well, last night he caught them!! With Franklins help of course!

Cooper has been dealing with alot of allergies this past month, so he is now taking allergy med which seems to be helping so far. You would think that not feeling well would make you cranky, irritable, and not happy......not our little scooterbug. He is still all smiles.

We thought that we would try something new the other day, letting him dry out after a bath....hahahha. He didn't pee anywhere thankgoodness but he would not stay on him tummy he kept wanting to roll roll roll. I was so afraid that the minute he rolled over he would go to watering everything.

Something else new we are experiencing, which I am not complaining about, naptime. He has started a new schedule...a short nap midmorning, a 2 1/2 hour nap at noon and another short nap mid afternoon and sleeps 11-12 hours at night!! With as much as he is sleeping, I think he is growing again. We are now in 9 month clothes...what?...he is only 4 1/2 months old???? Crazy

Dr's. Appointment

We went to our 4 month check-up yesterday which actually turned out to be ALOT better then expected. He of course got his shots but only cried till mommy picked him up. He cried for awhile at his 2 month shots but Jacob thinks he cried more because the nurse put Hello Kitty bandaids on, this time he got batman. As far as his allergies and ear-infections were concerned, one ear was completly healed and the other was just a little read. So, we will be going to see Nurse Aunt Stef on sunday to see if it is better. Everything looked really good and we don't have to go back till 6 months!!

4 months

Cooper is now 4 months old!

He turned 4 months old on Friday July 3. We haven't gone to his 4 month Baby Well check-up(appt on the 9th) but we did go to the Dr. on Monday (tell you more about that in a sec) and he weighed in at 17lbs and 12ozs.......Oh My Goodness!!!!

Cooper with Aunt Rachael

We thought that in celebration of his 4 month birthday that we would introduce him to cereal! It was quite a site, we could not help but laugh because he was not to sure about it. He has since learned to like it, a little.

First bite

Still not sure

Not so much!

Now earlier I told you that we had to go to the Dr. on Monday. Well, the 4th was not to exciting for us, Cooper got his first round of allergies. The poor baby could not sleep becaue he could not breath well, so mommy and daddy took turns sitting in grandad's recliner holding him upright all night so he could sleep. It was not better Monday morning so we took him to the Dr. to find out that he has a double ear-infection from all the drainage. The Dr. said that the ear-infection was not bad, that it was just coming on so we caught it very early. Let me tell you Cooper is a Trooper!! You would never know that he was sick. He is still talking and chatting and of course all smiles!

Our sick baby, finally asleep!

We did spend the 4th at Jacobs parents house in Ryan, Since Jacob and I have been married we have been going to Ryan for the 4th because it is right in the middle of Watermelon season so his family is in full swing. This year didn't really feel like the 4th because it was raining so we didn't get to do fireworks, but Cooper got to spend lots of time with grandparents, Aunt Rachael and Uncle Brett, Great Grandad and of course Great Grandmother
