That's right folks, it finally feels like I can take care of Cooper, know what he needs, know how to soothe him, and it only took 4 months! :)
We finally have a schedule. We eat, play on his activity mat, have tummy time with toys, snuggle with mom, take a nap, then repeat. It's a great schedule and I LOVE finally knowing what he will need before he needs it - for the most part!
Cooper is growing up to be just the handsomest little guy. He has likes, dislikes, he laughs, he smiles, he's like a tiny little man. I love it!
Over the last few weeks Cooper got to meet his Uncle Aaron who flew in from Vegas, tons of family friends, and his Uncle Eric who officially came home from the army just a few days ago! I love having family members meet him and showing him off. I'm one proud mama!
We're gearing up for his Baptism on Sunday and then my awful return to work next week. I'm dreading leaving him during the day, but know it probably be good for the both of us to take some time away from each other.
Mark continues to love spending more time with Cooper. He wasn't a HUGE fan of the baby stage. He really was looking forward to Cooper recognizing him, smiling at him, and hitting those huge milestones. Cooper is getting there and I can see Mark getting more excited and attached to him every day. I know every mother wants to have a little girl, but there's something about knowing you gave your husband a son that just melts your heart.
Other than that we are really just getting back into the swing of things. I'm getting more comfortable taking him out in public by myself which has really helped with my cabin fever! And I don't know why I was so nervous to take him out - I went to Walmart yesterday and God Bless this lady. She had a toddler with her, was pushing her twin newborn babies while pulling her cart full of groceries. I looked at her and told myself "If she can do it with all those babies, I can do it with my man."
I'm getting so excited for all the new firsts coming up for Cooper. Stand by for pumpkin patch photos, Halloween photos, Thanksgiving photos, and of course Christmas! It's all coming up so fast which means he's growing up so fast too. So with that, I'm going to go lay on the floor next to my son and play with him and his toys. :)
