Future Hunter!

Coop enjoyed his first trip to the hunting lease with Mom and Dad! We got to ride in a Ranger while Dad put corn in the feeders! It was a great first experience for Cooper and Mom! Coop is going to love spending time with his dad when he is old enough to hunt! Dad can't wait until the day Cooper gets to use the gun that Aunt Jadi and Uncle Judd got for him last Christmas! It kind of freaks me out a little bit because I didn't grow up around guns and hunting, but I know that his daddy will take good care of him and teach him all about safety!

Sitting Up!!

Yay, Cooper is sitting up! Of course I'm still right there in case he falls over, but he's pretty much got it down!

So, the last couple of days Cooper has been kind of fussy! Not bad fussy, just one of those "uh-uh-uh" kind of things! I think he is so ready to be able to move around...and catch the cat...that he has become frustrated! I've tried everything to make him happy, but I just haven't found the magic button yet! Today as I was nursing him and rocking him to sleep, I looked at his precious little face and became immediately thankful that Josh has given me this opportunity to stay at home to raise our son. God has blessed us beyond our wildest dreams and beyond anything we ever deserve. Second to my salvation, this has been the most amazing blessing God has ever bestowed upon me! Josh, thank you so much for allowing me to stay at home with our sweet baby boy! I know you work so hard and I don't want you to ever think we take that for granted! Cooper and I love you more than anything in the world and we thank you for loving us and providing for us! So, I must remember...when Coop has a "fussy" day....I could be in the classroom teaching...but I'm not....and I thank God for that!

Jumping Bean!!!

Our little jumping bean loves "chasing" the cat!! Notice how he jumps forward and then picks up his feet as he swings backwards! This is actually one of his milder jumping episodes!! We are really going to have our hands full once he starts crawling and walking!! Whew...I'll never have to go the gym again! = )

My poor little Cooper is going to have such a complex when he is old enough to know that the names we call him are not always so nice...
The two that have stuck since birth are Pumpkin Butt and Coopi Poopi... or Cooper Pooper! Poor kid....we're going to have to come up with some other nicknames soon, or these are going to stick forever!

5 Months!!

New Blogger

Ok!! I have resisted jumping into the blogging world for quite sometime now because I know I'm probably going to be the worlds worst blogger! I'm not very witty, I don't use spell check often enough, and I'm lazy with my grammar....but....I do have a really cute baby and I promise to post lots of pictures! We'll see how this works out! Now I just have to figure out how to post this thing!!!
