Catch Up

I apologize if anyone out there still reads this blog (besides our devoted family) because I've been a slacker, yet again.  But maybe this post of adorable Cooper pictures will make up for it.

Cooper has been such a joy for us; we were just commenting today how we love the new things he does everyday. Today, he noticed his feet for the first time and hasn't stopped staring at them. He grabbed them once, but I'm sure he'll be back at them soon.  He's going to meet his 7 week old cousin Caleb next weekend, and we're waiting the arrival of 3 more new cousins this year and in January! (Baby Girl Beahm, Baby Hammond, Baby Ruggieri).  We just can't wait.  Cooper will be one of NINE grandchildren on the Beahm side (by December) and he's the first on the Ruggieri side, with the next two to follow shortly.  I've absolutely adored watching Cooper with his Daddy...it makes me fall in love with both of them all over again each day. 

So, here's my attempt for making up my slackness:

Cooper loves to read already!

Reading with Daddy

Reading the Sunday morning paper with Pops

I am so strong!

I love my Mimi.
Throwing his cards in.
3 generations: Opa, Daddy, Cooper.
All Star!
My cute bath baby
3 months old...and 4 months old on November 11
Michael carving our first pumpkin...ASU

He is definitely the cutest little pumpkin in the pumpkin patch! (Please see the little pumpkin Michael got that is in Cooper's lap)


Happy Halloween!


Cooper called it!

We made this video before the first World Series game started...and look at Cooper's prediction. He's a pro already!

Pizza and a Food Blog

I know I have been extremely slack on this blog. I knew that would happen. It's hard to balance life with work and a baby...but it will get easier, I know.  In the meantime to fill the gap since I last posted, here's a link to my food blog that I share with dear friends from college. I just posted an Apple, Goat Cheese and Pecan Pizza that I made last week....delicious!  Try it out:  http://fivefoodiefriends.blogspot.com/

And of course, a cute picture of my App baby who is 12 weeks old tomorrow!
