5 months old!

Cooper turned 5 months old on Saturday! He is such a big boy!
*At 5 months, he loves to play in his exersaucer, give hugs, blow bubbles, make loud squealing noises, look at lights, take baths, eat his rice cereal, be outside, roll over, and read books!
*He does NOT like to go to sleep, take vitamin drops, lay on his tummy, be away from mommy and daddy, ride in his car seat, or be by himself!
We are seeing more and more of his personality every day!

Giving Thanks

What a wonderful Thanksgiving we had this year. I am overwhelmed with how much I have to be thankful for!
*I am thankful for a forgiving, loving, and faithful God. He continues to bless us beyond belief!
* I am thankful for a hardworking and loving husband. I am so lucky to have such a devoted husband that has become an amazing father to our son. I thank God every day for the blessing of my marriage.
*I am thankful for my precious baby boy. He has brought more joy to my life than I could have ever dreamed.
*I am thankful for my two amazing families. I take such comfort in knowing I have such support and love coming from mine and Chad's families. They continue to show unconditional love and selflessness to us.

...and many, many more...

On Thursday, we celebrated at Cassie (Chad's sister) and Mike's (brother in law) house! We had such a great time visiting, eating, and watching football. Cooper also got to meet Cassie and Mike's dog CoCo! He wasn't afraid at all. He kept reaching for and watching her everywhere she went. I'm afraid CoCo better watch out when Cooper becomes mobile!

We are so excited that Cassie is expecting a baby GIRL!!! Maydie will be born in early April!!!

Cooper changed clothes 3 times! He started out in his Thanksgiving shirt. Then, Grandad bought him this cute Dallas Cowboys outfit (he will have to grow into the hat a little bit!). After the Cowboy game he had to change in to his Aggie attire. Whew, so many wardrobe changes for such a little boy!
On Friday, my parents, grandparents, and great uncle came to celebrate with us. It was such a nice afernoon visiting with all of them! Grandmommy even brought Cooper a Thanksgiving bib with his name on it!
What a fun two days!!!
Sorry for the poor picture quality. My camera broke so I had to use my phone!

Mystery Baby

Cooper loves to play with his mirror. He spends alot of time trying to get that cute mystery baby he sees!

Cereal or Hands???

Cooper is doing very well with his rice cereal. He gets so excited when he sees me get out the bowl and spoon!

I'm not sure which he enjoys more...the cereal...or his hands! He puts his hands in his mouth after every bite of cereal!

Baby Bookworms

This week Cooper and I met our friends Rachel and Katelyn at the library for Baby Bookworms! Cooper LOVED listening to the stories! The Kindergarten teacher in me was so proud of how well he listened! :) Cooper also enjoyed watching the other kids play with all the toys. Maybe in a few months he will want to play too!

A Visit From MiMi

MiMi came to stay with us for a couple of days last week. Cooper loved playing with her ever present Diet Pepsi! Just wait til he can taste it!

Tricks and Treats...FINALLY!

Well, our internet is finally working again...sort of. So, I have lots of things to share!

This was our cute little teddy bear for Halloween. Not quite old enough for trick or treating yet, but Cooper liked being in his costume!

In honor of Halloween, Cooper learned some new "Tricks" during the last couple of weeks!

Rolling Over


Cooper thought this horse was hilarious!

Cooper also tried a new "Treat" last week...rice cereal! Not much made it into his mouth during the first few tries, but now he is doing great!

This was his first time in his high chair.
