Daddy and Me

Michael is an incredibly involved new dad, especially with how young Cooper is.  He loves coming home to him, playing the guitar to him, running with him, putting him to bed, giving him baths, making him smile, and just playing with him.  And Cooper absolutely adores his daddy! It's such a joy for me to watch them together.  I've grabbed a few snapshots and videos of the two of them to share.  I can't wait to see this bond grow closer over the years!  Cooper is a lucky guy to have Michael as his Daddy.  Enjoy!

Caught on Camera

Cooper is smiling a lot more these days, but still probably not based off of things we do to make him smile. Although he loves when Michael plays with him. We caught this little smile accidentally one night. He is so darn cute!

5 Weeks

We had a last minute visit from Cooper's Nana and Pops this weekend! It was such a special treat.  Nana just couldn't go any longer without holding Cooper.  I wouldn't have been able to either!  This weekend, Cooper gets to meet his cousin, Lucy, and his uncle Chris and aunt Melissa!


Nana helped Cooper find his thumb!

He's such a little mover!






I've been trying to upload some videos, but I can't seem to get them to work.  Maybe eventually!

Happy 1 Month Birthday!

Today, our little Cooper turns 1 month old! It's hard to believe it's already been that long. I am ready for time to stop!  I've heard it gets worse the older they get.  Cooper is changing and growing everyday!  Below are just a few pictures. 


I love his face in this one!
On another note, I need to put a plug in for a cool website, www.TakeThemAMeal.com.  One of our friends here in Charleston had this set up for us once my Mom left...we've had a meal delivered to us by friends or coworkers every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for 4 weeks.  What a blessing!  Please use this for your friends who need help with meals. It's so easy to use!

Take Ten

I can't believe tomorrow Cooper will be 4 weeks old.  How have 4 weeks already passed since he entered this world?  Time has really flown by.  Each day is filled with fun new "firsts", and I am so excited to see the many more Cooper will have in the coming weeks and months.  Although I don't like to think about it, I am going back to work in 2 weeks. Hopefully between Michael and I, we'll be able to keep this blog going weekly. 

Last week I struggled to get Cooper's 3 week photo, but then realized it would be fun to show the process of capturing the photo.  So, here are the many takes!
