Monkey Swinging

Cooper has a blast in his swing in my backyard. He loves to go fast and high. If I let it stop or start doing something else, he lets me know that he isn't happy. I can't wait until he is old enough to go to the park and get on the big boy swing. He is NOT a big fan of his sunglasses however. As soon as you put them on his head, he tries to take them off.

Cooper and his Mommy

There is a special bond between a mother and her son. People told me about it before Cooper was born, but I didn't quite understand. People told me " Boys love their mommas" and oh how this is true. He has just gotten to where he prefers me over anyone else if I am in the room. He wants me to hold him all the time. Our bond is very deep, and I love him to the moon and back. When we are apart my heart is broken, and I am not whole until we are reunited. I feel so honored that God allowed me to be a mommy to such an amazing little boy.


Cooper loves splashing in his pool on the back patio. He gets all duded up in his swimsuit and he takes his favorite bath toys out to play in the pool. He has so much fun and even likes to lay on his stomach and kick. It looks like we have a little fish on our hands.


It finally arrived. For many months now, everyone has been saying Cooper is teething. He was drooling alot, chewing on everything and fussy at times. So, every night before bed I would do the infamous tooth check. But, to my surprise there was never a tooth. 7 months came and went and then 8 months came and went with no teeth. But finally, at 8 1/2 months, there it was on the bottom. Just one but so cute. Now I am just waiting for the one beside it to come in. Here is his grin showing off his new tooth.

We are BAC K!!!

Well, what can I say? The last 3 months have been quite the journey but I am now back to blogging and chasing around my 9 month old baby boy. I can hardly believe he is 9 months old today. He is crawling everywhere and into everything. Cooper also got his first tooth. Just one. So cute. He is obsessed with remote controls, keys and doing whatever he can to not get his diaper changed. He has started this new goofy grin when I get out the camera. ( see Photos) He cracks me up.
