Little sicky

Cooper came down with a runny nose last night and hasn't been feeling well today. We feel bad for our little guy and hope he feels better soon. It's no fun when they're so little and you can tell they just aren't themselves.

Hanging with Grandma Lebda

Yes, you'll notice I am playing blog catch up this afternoon. Last night we were at Bill and Michelle's hanging out with the Lebdas. Cooper got to see his Grandma and Papa Lebda. He was so happy in Grandma's lap!

Happy Birthday Preston

Dave and I rarely get pics together these days so I made Michelle take this one of us on Frid. night at Preston's birthday party. We had so much fun. Grandma and Papa Quaid baby sat Cooper so we got a night out! The 1st half of the evening we were in the bar at Sierra Lanes for dinner and karaoke. That was a hilarious experience. Our party was there to have fun and laugh and sing, but apparently there's a whole culture of people who take it seriously. At times we felt like we were living out the American Idol try-outs! The 2nd half of the night we bowled. It's been so long since I had bowled. It really was a cool party!

So cute

So Cooper was just too cute on Friday in his little green outfit... which meant lots of pictures!

Class Reunion

Last Wed we had our childbirth class reunion. It was so fun to see everyone, no longer pregnant, with their babies. We got them together and took their picture. It was so funny to see these tiny human beings interact, or sleep in Cooper's case! (From left to right; Haley, Cooper, Samuel, and Beth)

27 Dresses

Ok, so I took Cooper to his 1st movie today. Michelle, Becca, Ashley, Cooper and I

all went to see 27 Dresses. It proved to be the typical cute girl movie I was hoping it would be.... and the other reason I wanted to see it was to see James Marsden! Both Ashley and Cooper did awesome. They slept right through. (ok Coop did cry a little in the middle but I didn't miss much of the movie.) So it was a fun girl afternoon that I am sure Cooper won't soon forget. :>)

Learning to smile

His smiles are coming along, but they are hard to get in a picture so this was a rare occasion. I snapped the photo just at the right time. I also had to get a picture of his mountain shoes. He wore them up to Grandma and Papa Quaid's on Sun.

Daddy dressed Cooper

So Dave and Cooper disappeared upstairs Sat. morning for a long time. I didn't know what they were doing, but when they returned Dave was so proud. He had dressed Cooper in this matching outfit and found these cute tennis shoes too! He was most excited about the shoes.... so we had to take a picture.

1st Smile

Cooper had his 1st smile today. Not just a sleep reaction, or gas reaction, but a real smile. It was hard to get a picture of it but I did. I tickle his lips and he smiles! Today was a happy day, with lots of awake time this afternoon. We're going to the Dr. tomorrow though becuase he keeps puking up my milk and I don't know why?

Happy Baby... for a little while


I took this video today because this happy baby only appeared for about 20 minutes today. The rest of his awake time was spent crying, for what I believe is no apparent reason. Dare I label Cooper as a colic baby? Maybe tomorrow will be a better day! We missed our Bible study this morning because he was fussy, but luckily the same series happens at night too. So when dad came home to relieve me from baby duty I was able to go. What a refresher for my soul!

Singing to Jesus!

This morning I told Cooper we were going to go sing to Jesus! Someday he really will. We took him to People's for the 1st time. I was a little nervous. I didn't want to be the ones with the screaming baby that distracts from the message, but he did awesome. He hung out in his carseat quietly the whole time. This afternoon he's had lots of awake time. Although the short time he was sleeping was when GER and GAS came to visit. (That's Great Uncle Robin and Great Aunt Sheri) We were excited they finally got to meet him!

Going to Grandma's

Cooper had his 1st trip up to Grandma and Papa Quaid's yesterday afternoon... and although he didn't go out in it his 1st trip to the snow... and on the way up there we stopped for his 1st trip to Uncle Bill and Aunt Michelle's house. It was a big afternoon for him. His onsie appropriately said "Going to Grandma's"

A Bad Day

So today was a "bad" day. Well it started with 1 bad night and continued into a bad day. Cooper just wanted to be wide awake last night, so of course mommy had to be wide awake with him. Then all day today it was nothing but screamy crying. Every time he was awake he was so upset. My patience was shot since I was low on sleep so it just wasn't a good day for either of us. Finally Daddy Dave came home at 6 and let me take a bath and drink a beer. I felt better and of course Mr. Cooper was so happy this evening... making me look like a crazy person. Please pray it was just a bad day and not the onset of colic.

Cooper is 1 month old

I took cooper in for his 1 month Dr. appointment yesterday. He was really screamy all morning until I undressed him for the Doc in the exam room and then he was content. I think he just didn't like the green dino outfit I picked out for him! He weighed 8 lbs and the Dr. daid he's growing and healthy. His next appointment is at 2 months and it won't be fun, he gets his 1st set of shots.

Our 1st Walk

Cooper and I took our 1st walk today. It was cold outside so I had to bundle him up. I dressed him in this snugly eskimo outfit Jacinda got for him. I didn't know if he would like the stroller, but he did! We walked for 20 minutes. The new Jeep stroller is awesome and I can't wait to start jogging with it.

Another bathtime pic!

He's so cute after his baths because he's so happy. Just had to post this pic from tonight. I promise this is the last post for the evening!

Ashley Wuth

Cooper finally got to meet his girlfriend Ashley today. She was sleepy so we'll have to wait till their play date next week to get some more pics of them. We just know they will be in love some day. She's just 2 days older than Cooper and I can't wait for them to be old enough to interact with each other.

Who's that in the mirror?

Cooper's favorite thing to do when he is awake is stare at himself in the mirror on his new play gym he got from Grandma and Grandpa Lebda. He kicks his legs and talks to himself. It's just the cutest thing.

We love our friends!

So Wed. night the Hales came over and brought us dinner. Kiara was so excited to meet little Cooper. She was so cute with him.
Joanna and Kadence spent the 2nd half of the week with us and they just went home early this morning. I am such a loser friend that I didn't get any pics with them and Cooper. It was nice to have Jo here. Dave was so sweet, he watched the kids last night and we got to have some girl time. We got our feet rubbed and got some coffee and girl talk at Starbucks! It was just what I needed at the end of this week.

New Year's Eve

This is how we spent our New Year's Eve. It was anything but "rock-n". Dave and I watched TV and Cooper slept the night away. While we were invited to hang out at the James' I just didn't feel like going anywhere and poor Dave had to sit home
with me and Cooper. We managed to find some Champagne in the closet so at least we could toast each other at midnight!
How did you spend your New Year's Eve?
