Bad Peas!

When Coop was sick, nothing tasted good....not even his yummy peas!

Well, for Coop's first holiday he decided to get sick....and RSV of all things! We ended up in the emergency room the day after Thanksgiving because his doctor's office was closed....thank goodness we got there early. We walked right in, but by the time we got out of there, there were 20 people in the waiting room. Don't know how this happened...he's not in day care and not around other kids! It's so sad! I hope it passes quickly!

6 month pics

Josh was out of town hunting when we had these pictures taken! I kind of felt weird taking pics with Coop by myself, but they turned out pretty cute! = )

I was just looking at some old pics of my growing boy! I still can't believe he has been here for 1/2 of a year!!!!! He was so tiny!! He was about a week old in this picture and the little green outfit he was wearing is preemie....oh how he has grown!

Nanny Visits!

Nanny came to visit Cooper this weekend! They had a great time hanging out and playing with each other! Of course, Cooper decided he needed a LONG nap on the day Nanny was in town...2 whole hours!!! I guess you have to take them when you can get them!

6 Month Stats!

6 months
15 lbs. 13 oz. (45th percentile)
27 inches (80th percentile)

When he was born his stats were:

6 lbs. 5 oz (10th percentile)
19 1/2 inches (25th percentile)

Big boy sure has grown!

Now, you have to remember the I was induced early because they thought Coop was measuring too small and they thought something might be wrong! I don't consider a 6 lb. baby all that small. I talked to a lady at the doctor's office today that said her baby was born 4 lbs. 13 oz.........and she wasn't induced because her baby was too small!!! I'm still at a loss as to why there was so much concern over Cooper's size. It sure made for a traumatic last month of my pregnancy! I'm just SO blessed that we have a happy HEALTHY baby boy!!

By the way, when we got back from the was WAY past his naptime (he had been awake for 4 hours)! He was sacked out in the car seat and as I tried to transfer him into the bed....he woke up crying! He cried for almost an hour before he fell alseep....this time he has his arm around his lovee instead of in that crazy position he ended up in yesterday! Crying it out sure is hard for mama...but I know he needed some sleep!

Nap time!

Coop has decided that napping is for the birds! He's been having a really hard time lately going down and the "cry it out" method is just too much for me! I've tried it before and he ended up very hoarse and without a voice for about 2 weeks! Well, after being awake for a good 5 1/2 hours yesterday WITHOUT a nap, I decided that today is a new day....he's going to have to figure this one out! So at 12:30, we go back and do our usual ritual...rock, sing, nurse (even though I try really hard not to nurse him down...I was giving him every advantage I could think of). So he falls asleep nursing (which I know is not always the best thing...but, hey, this boy needed his sleep)!!! As I begin to lay him down, he looks up at me and smiles! That always gets me...but not this time! I have to be strong. So I leave the room and the water works start within 2.5 seconds! I told myself I was going to give him an hour....he cried for 36 min....and ended up in this position. I really wanted to move him so he wouldn't get a crick in his neck, but I was afraid I was going to wake him up! It is 3:18 right now and he's still asleep!!! WOW! So...he DID need his nap! The "cry it out" method! = )

Our sweet baby boy just makes me smile! He does not like pacifiers and is not a thumb sucker...but he LOVES his lovee!! Any time we put him to sleep, we place one of his 3 favorites next to him (the Frog from Whitney, the Dog from Nanny, and the blue lovee with his named monogrammed in the corner from Tia Donna) . Before you know it, he's on his tummy with his arm around his lovee. No matter where he ends up in the middle of the night, that lovee is right there tucked sweetly underneath his arm.

What a great 1st Halloween! Cooper was our cute little lion! He visited Dad (the 3 hole punch) at work and showed off for everyone at the pharmacy! We didn't do any trick-or-treating this year because I would have ended up eating all of his candy! So we just hung out at Dee Dee and Grandpa's house with cousins Conner and Belyn! Good times!
