Cooper's First Mail

Yesterday, Cooper got his first piece of mail. A Halloween card from Grandmommy and PaPa!

"Hmmmm... what's this?"

"Let's see what it says!"

"Awww...I LOVE IT!"

Today Cooper is 4 months old! I can't believe how much he has changed! What a sweet blessing he is!

This weekend we went to Abilene to surprise my grandparents for their 60th wedding anniversary! We had a wonderful dinner for them at The Beehive restaurant. What a fun time! Congratulations Mom Mom and PaPa!!! (Thanks MiMi for watching Cooper!)

Grandmommy bought Cooper this cute Superman costume to use as pajamas! Don't all little boys need Superman pajamas? It's still a little too warm since it is made out of fleece, but we couldn't resist trying it on just for fun!

First Day in the Nursery

Today we took Cooper to our church nursery for the first time. I wish I had details to report. However, when we picked up Cooper they had just had a shift change so they really couldn't tell us whether or not Cooper had been crying. So...all we know is that he was happy when we left and happy when we picked him up! YEA! What a relief! He was given a bottle at some point so we figure there must have been at least a little crying. But...We were so happy to find him playing happily in the bouncy seat when we came to pick him up! An added bonus was that his classroom had only 4 babies and 4 workers! Maybe next time Chad and I will be a little more at ease! :)

Gig 'em Aggies

On Saturday, we took Cooper to his very first A&M event! After dressing Cooper in his Aggie best, Grandmommy, PaPa, Uncle Case, Chad, Cooper, and I headed to the Aggie Band parade around Cowboy Stadium and the Ballpark. It was a great day for a parade. Cooper loved the music and watched very intently as the parade marched by! That night Cooper stayed with our number one babysitters, Aunt Cassie and Uncle Mike, while we went to the football game! We are so lucky to have such great families to help us with Cooper.

While we had a great time at the game, Chad and I quickly decided that this was too long to be away from our little man! We think we will stick to shorter outings for awhile!

State Fair

On Thursday, Chad and I took Cooper to the State Fair! It was raining at first, but ended up being a nice day. We ate corn dogs, watched a dog show, and looked at all the new cars. Of course we had to take a picture with Big Tex too!
