I got to take a Monday off and stay home with Cooper and get some work done around the house and have a "Mommy" day. We had a good day together.

While I was finishing a batch of baby food Cooper played with his toys. I looked over to see that he was sitting in his wheel barrel. 

I don't think that he meant to sit in it he gets stuck in some pretty funny places and positions because he hasn't exactly figured out how to maneuver his little body yet.

We went to dinner at Aunt Mar and Uncle Kelbs house. I think he ate longer off Kelby's plate than Kelby did. He tried a plate full of new things, potato casserole, fried okra, fresh green beans AND pot roast.  
Watch out Uncle Kelbs you might pull back a nub! 

We had a really warm weekend so Cooper's afternoon nap was in his diaper. I went in to see if he was good and asleep so I could go lay in the sun outside his bedroom window and he was
"Comfy Cozy". He slept with his leg propped up for a long time. 

We had a great weekend!

Washed Up

We had some major rains in May. We came home to the creek rushing over the driveway. So on one side we had an 8 ft deep pond and on the other a rushing river. It washed out the edge of the driveway.

We had a few critters washed up in the water that got left behind when the water went down.

Grandpa tried to give it to Cooper. He didn't want anything to do with it.

His Daddy tried to let him take a bite of it. Luckily he didn't want to do that either. 


11 Months

Cooper turned 11 months on Mother's Day so we had a double celebration. 
He gets funnier and funnier daily. 

He makes this face ALL the time.  It's SO funny!
Pardon the diaper bear shots this was post our snuggle nap after church/lunch/grocery shopping. 

As you can tell he doesn't really sit still for his bear shots anymore. But it's fun to see what he'll do while we're trying to take them. We had to take these in the floor because he looked like he was going to dive off the couch even with Gary sitting by him.  He'd make his OH face like he saw something he had to have and try to crawl off. 

We went to see Atley who was born Thursday afternoon.  
She's hanging out with Aleeya (Squeaky) and her proud big brother Coby.

Cooper was checking out what Aleeya was doing.

They are buddies. Coby shares his tractors with Cooper- this is a rare occasion depending on who you are. He a good older friend. Cooper has fun watching Coby run and play and push tractors. They have lots of fun ahead. 
I have a feeling Cooper, Coby and Mac have some good times coming and their Mama's have some worrying to do. We've got our hands full I'm afraid.
I had a very nice Mother's Day.
To start our celebrations Saturday after the March for Babies that we did with a group of friends I headed to my second Mother's Day lunch with my friend Narissa's family. Last year I was the only daughter that went with her mom. This year we had a full group. It consisted of Narissa, her two sisters, Rebekah and Sara Jane, her mom Lori, her two aunts, Tina and her daughter Chelsey and Marta and her son Kyle and her Grandma Karen, oh and the boys Cooper and Mac. We had lunch at Nearly Famous then headed for pedicures. I had fun with the girls. I've been blessed to have been adopted by their family since mine is so spread out. You can't have enough Mamas I say!! Thank you girls for having me! I had a wonderful time and I love you dearly!
Yesterday we had time to get our weekend snuggle time with Cooper before time to get up for church. We headed to panera for a quick bagel and coffee then off to church. After church we took Gary's Mom to lunch then headed to the store for a few things. We were lucky enough as you already read to get a nap in and then continued getting our weekend plans done. 

Thank you Cooper making my first Mother's Day so special!
I got my first handprint flower picture today that he made at the babysitters. I was so excited to receive it!

I love and miss you Mama! I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day with you Mama!
