Ready for the River?

We have started putting Cooper in his Bumbo seat out of sheer curiousity. On the third time in the seat, he automatically rested his arms on the side like that all by himself! We cracked up, because he looks like all he needs is a cold one (bottle of breast milk) in hand and he could float the river!

Happy Thanksgiving!

 Yea for Cooper's first Thanksgiving! We felt especially thankful this year, because we have Cooper here with us now. We don't even know the right words to express our joy over our baby boy. We enjoyed turkey day over at my parents' house, where we were reminded to be thankful for family. On a lighter note, we were also thankful that the torturous Aggie football season is finally over. Here are few pictures from the day:

Big Foot!

Just for grins this morning, I tried some of Cooper's things on him that before were too big. I was shocked to learn that his sneakers fit him! While they looked really cute on, they made me a little sad because they make him look like such a big boy! He grows so fast! Everyone who told me that all I have to do is blink twice and he is grown wasn't joking!

Mad Baby!

Yes, believe it or not, sometimes Cooper is less than thrilled about having his picture taken.

Silly Baby!

Cooper now will hang out in his bouncy seat or play gym for twenty minutes or more, grabbing for the toys and just being silly. This is a huge relief for Mom's aching arms!

Happy Baby!

I just had to a post picture of Cooper smiling...when he smiles my heart just melts. I no longer seem to mind that I haven't really slept since he was born, how my hair always smells like spit-up, or I just don't feel sure of myself as a mom sometimes. That little face makes it all worth it.

Milestone Saturday

On Saturday we marked two important milestones in our lives. Cooper turned 6 weeks old and David and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. Cooper stayed with Grandma and Grandpa for a few hours while we went out to dinner. It was the first time I had been away from Cooper for more than an hour, which I guess is a milestone in itself. It was really nice to have a quiet dinner to ourselves, in which we both had two hands free, but we talked about Cooper for nearly the entire dinner. Once we paid the check, we just couldn't get back to Grandma's fast enough!

Getting Big...But still so little!

Cooper went to the doctor on Friday for a weight check...he is now 10 pounds and 3 ounces. He has gained nearly 3 pounds since his birth 5 and a half weeks ago! However, look how he sizes up to Daddy's hand...he is just a little guy!

Jana Visits!

This weekend our friend Jana came to meet Cooper. We watched football and shopped and were generally just glad to hang out with Aunt Jana! Cooper also got a lesson in what it means to be an Aggie the team, win or lose, good or bad. Sigh. Here are few pictures from the weekend:

Who do I look like?

Everyday, depending on the face he is making, I think Cooper looks like someone else. Sometimes me, sometimes David. What do you think?

One Month Old!

Today, on Election Day, Cooper is one month old! We just took a walk to the elementary school to cast our vote. Now that I am a mom, I guess I am going to start referring to myself as "we." Cooper can't speak for himself, so I can speak for him. Here are some pictures of two things Cooper CAN do now!
Holding up his head.
Smiling at Mom.
