So again we have so many pictures right now it's overwhelming to choose just a few to post here. I love that I can take the kids pictures and get a photo with their eyes open! Sam is smiling lots and starting to really babble. Just the last 2 days she is able to spend more time talking and entertaining herself. Cooper still loves to give her kisses and talk in a high pitch voice when he sees her. He's always concerned when she's not around or when she is crying. She seems to be getting more aware of him too. Coop seems to be adding a word a day to his vocabulary. He's starting to make more sense and speak in short sentences. We're still working on how he expresses his frustrations but he is a good boy with a sensitive heart. I'm feeling like the kids and I are finding our routine for the first time since Sam's arrival. I started back at the People's church Wed. morning women's Bible study. It's so great to be able to go again. I'm going with my long time friend Breanna who just moved back here from Oregon. It's been so fun to re-connect with her!

Last week I took Samantha to the Dr. for her 2 month appointment. She weighed 9lbs 9oz and was 22" long. The Dr. said everything looked good. She is growing good and I can't believe how big she has already gotten! She still seems to be having stomach problems, but has been sleeping pretty well at night. It's been fun dressing her in all her girlie outfits and Coop still adores her. As difficult as my days may seem some times I feel so blessed to be able to stay home with my kiddos and to watch them grow and change everyday!

Robby and Jo were in town for Christmas so we drove over to Pismo for the day on New Year's Eve. It was such a beautiful day there, warm and sunny. Cooper loved splashing his feet in the water. He was so sad when we finally had to go eat lunch and he had to stop playing. Dave enjoyed trying out the new camera and he got some really good pics. Of course we had lunch at Splash and then walked along the pier. That night once we got back we shipped the kids off to my parents for the night and we went out to dinner with Robby and Jo and Nathan and Breanna at the Cheesecake Factory. Then we headed over to Nathan and Breanna's for games and dessert. It was really a fun New Year's Eve with old friends!

So Dave has been really excited about our new camera. It's the Nikon D5000. He's really embraced it and already knows so much more than me on how to adjust the settings to get the kind of pics he wants. These are some of the first pics he took of the kids. I'm so excited for us to be able to use our artistic sides to get into photography!

So for some reason we didn't take very many pics of Christmas morning but here are a few highlights. Coop got a ride on quad, Dave got a Keurig coffee maker and I got an iPhone! We headed up to Bill and Michelle's for more fesivities and we opened a new Nikon camera from Ron and Terry! So since then we have been taking lots of pics trying to learn how to use our new camera. So many pics I am overwhelmed with what to post on the blog. We had a great Christmas. We didn't over load ourselves so it was fun and relaxing. Coop still didn't get the opening presents thing this year, but maybe next year he'll be excited. He has been really enjoying all his new toys though. As always we feel very blessed with all our gifts.
