Priceless Video

I didn't realize Josh had this video until this week. As we were going thru our old videos, I found this one from the day Cooper was born. After I had a hurried C-Section that was extremely stressful, they rolled me into the recovery room. Up until then, I didn't have my glasses on so I couldn't even see Cooper's face. I put my glasses on and looked at Cooper, and he started making this precious noise. He did it for about 2 months after we got home. Boy, how I miss that sweet sound. I wouldn't take a million dollars for this video. It seems just like yesterday, but it has been almost 5 months.

Sensitive Boy

Every night Josh plays music for Cooper on his iTunes. He normally plays about 15 to 20 songs. He has the funniest reaction to one particular song....
"The Rose" by Bette Midler. Every time he plays this song, Cooper has the same reaction. I think our boy is a little sensitive. This is so hysterical to us. He does this every single time. Check out the lip quiver before the big cry. Do you think he knows this was one of the saddest movies of all times? Josh cut it off before he really got going because we felt so sorry for him.

Sunday visit with Cooper's 89 year old Great Papaw

We take Cooper every Sunday over to see my grandparents which are Cooper's Great Grands. My Papaw is 89 years old and has cancer. We have almost lost him several times over the past year but he keeps bouncing back. He absolutely lights up whenever he sees Cooper. He just grins from ear to ear. It is so sweet to see their precious interactions each week.

Cooper's first pair of Big Boy Shoes

Well, Josh and I headed out today to find Cooper his first pair of shoes. See, he has been living in his footed pajamas so there has been no need for socks/shoes. But, now that we are dressing him in big boy clothes, we have been putting socks on him. The problem is that they all fall off. His foot is so chubby that they won't stay on. To find ones that won't cut the circulation off his ankles is next to impossible and when we do, they are too big in length and slip off. So, we come. He transformed into a little boy from a baby the moment we put his shoes on.

Out for a stroll on a warm January Day!!

It was 68 degrees on January 4th so we decided to get Cooper out and go for a stroll around the neighborhood. He was fascinated by all the sights and sound and really enjoyed looking around at everything. The jogging stroller is going to be a daily event since Mommy has a New Year's Resolution to start walking every day.

Little feet....oh how I love little feet.

Cooper's little feet always make me smile. I thought it was too precious they way his feet looked when he started sitting up so big in his Bumbo. And, on December 31st, he found his feet while laying on our bed. Now, as soon as you lay him down on his back, he lifts his feet up to play with them.

Happy New Year !!!

Cooper brought in 2009 with a bang. We dressed him up in all the festive gear and tried to keep him up until midnight. That didn't really work out so we did the countdown a little early. We told him how awesome 2008 was because it was the year he was born. Cheers to you little buddy.

Cooper Loves Cereal

Well, the time has finally come to start solid foods. We have been trying to hold off until 4 months. So, the big day came and he LOVED it. When I say love it, I mean LOVE it. He is a great eater and opens his mouth so big when he sees the spoon coming. As you can see, he is all smiles when it is feeding time.
