Wow! That's all I can say! Cooper slept for 9 that's NINE hours last night!!! I don't know what I did to get such a great sleeper. I certainly don't deserve it. Even Noah slept in this morning. I love it when the stars align! :) Bye for now!

Busy busy busy...

We have been keeping pretty busy these days.
Saturday was my nephew Dylan's birthday party at Boondocks. All I can say is - CRAZY! It was a zoo in there! I asked one of the employees if it was always that busy in there. She said that is always how Saturdays are. They had 38 birthday parties scheduled for that day!! Noah had a great time playing in Kiddie Cove after the pizza & cake. He didn't want to leave!
Noah spent Satuday night with his cousin Adam so that I could attend Susan's birthday dinner. Happy 40th Susan!! :) Pf Changs was super yummy!
I took the boys to the zoo on Tuesday. My mom went with us and we met my sister-in-law, Sharra, and cousins Dylan & Mya. The kids had a blast! (well, Cooper slept the entire time, but the other three had fun!) The animals were a close second to the giraffe slide! ;) Noah was very sad that the merri-go-round was not open. Luckily, we got out of there before the rain hit.

Cooper is doing great! He is still an excellent sleeper - he has had two nights where he slept for more than 7 hours!! He is averaging about 5 for the most part. I'm not sure how I lucked out and got such a mellow baby, but thank you!! He is growing like a weed getting bigger every day. He is making lots of new sounds and starting to really work his arms and legs.

Noah is doing great at the Children's Center. He is learning all sorts of new things - like what happens when you mix baking soda and vinegar! He LOVED that!!
Well, we're off to Grammy's to meet up with Aunt Jenny for another fun day!

The boys are good. Cooper is growing so fast! He will be 6 weeks old on Thursday! Noah can't pass him by without giving him a kiss or touching his head.

We have been playing at the park a lot. We love the park on Hill Rd. in Eagle. It has the coolest squishy flooring under the play equipment. We went twice last week! Cooper slept through most of the trips!
He is still a great sleeper. He is consistently sleeping in 4 - 5 hour stretches at night. Every once in a while slipping in a 6 hour stretch! He is starting to really check things out. I love to listen to all the new sounds he is trying to make.
We just found out that our friend Jeremy will be graduating from undergraduate pilot school this month. A big congratulations to him!

Cooper is a month old!

Wow! I can't believe how fast time is going! Cooper is 4 weeks old already! He is a great baby. He has been sleeping for 5 hours at night! He even slept for 6 hours the other night!! Noah still adores him. He gives him TONS of kisses & can't walk past him without touching his head. My mom & I took Cooper to the mall yesterday to get his one month pictures taken. He slept through the entire session.
Noah is doing great at the children's center. His best friend Kate is in his class and they are loving spending so much time together. Noah is so excited to see her every day.
Last night was a terrible night. My dad had a mild heart attack. Cooper & I spent a few hours in the ICU waiting room last night with my mom & siblings. Thankfully, God was taking care of him, and Larry is doing great. He had a blockage about an inch long in his right coranary artery. They were able to remove the blockage and he is recovering well. Hopefully, he'll be able to go home tomorrow.
My goal is to try & update this blog at least once a week (Susan!), so be sure to check back often! :)
