Kooper's 2 months

My sweet boy turned 2 months on Saturday the 15th. It's hard to believe but at the same time I feel like we have had him just as long as kynlie.

(I love this picture lol)

He's starting to show lots of personality, I love it! His smile is so sweet! I think he looks a lot like kynlie. He has a little bit of lighter features than she did/does.

(blurry phone picture)

Kooper is still a breast fed baby. I plan on feeding as long as my body will let me or until he's 1. I BF kynlie till she was 1.

Today we had koopers well child check. Things went great!! I love these apts because I love seeing how my kids grow and getting stats, also we just love our doctor! (he's who I worked for before I made the decision to stay home)

Kooper was so good at his apt. He did not fuss one time, until the shots but that's a given.

He's a BIG healthy boy!
*14.5 lbs - 95th percentile!!!
*24 1/2 in. - 75th percentile!!
Football player in our future? I think so!! I looked back at kynlies 2 month post and she was 11.5 lbs and 22 1/2 in.

Dr. P said he's very healthy!! That's alway nice to hear!

Then came the shots :( I told brad I had a feeling he wasn't going to do as good as kynlie did. I was right. Kyn would cry but calm down as soon as she was picked up....not kooper!! Poor thing screamed and screamed! My heart was breaking. He even bled more :(

He finally calmed down and fell a sleep. As a matter of fact he's been a sleep most of the afternoon. He's sleeping on my chest right now (p.s. I'm in heaven right now;))

Now we are ready for the rangers!!! (yes he's in a pink bouncer. It was sisters and he loves it. We bought a new one but he didn't like it so we got our money back)

I turned the big 30 on September 13! It was a special birthday! I had just gave birth almost a month before to our son and our daughter just turned 3 the week before. So turning 30 wasn't all that bad, I had everything I needed!!!

Except a sewing machine HA!! My mom had told me she was thinking about buying me one for my birthday (she told me b/c she wanted to make sure I wanted it before spending the money). I was so excited!! I've been wanting one for a while now.

Well this is what I got!!!!!!

Embroidery and sewing machine!!! I told her I wanted to learn how to embroider so bad, so I could make my kids cut clothes! I knew I would one day get a embroidery machine but didn't know it was going to be the day of my birthday!!! I was thrilled!!!! It was from everyone, Bradley, my parents, and brads parents!

There is sooooooo much to learn about this machine. But here are a few things I've made.

This cute fall dress for kynlie! I cant wait for her to wear it. I still have to put the buttons on it and embroidery her name or the letter K. I can't take total credit for this. My mom helped out a lot! (she has very good talent at sewing and a college degree showing it. She should do it more often HINT HINT MOM)

This is not my favorite. I tried making kynlie a shirt for the football game and I think I got my measurements wrong HA!! it's a little small for the shirt. I tell ya, there's a lot to learn.

I made this cute onesie last night for kooper. once again I need to learn my measurements b/c it's not centered in the middle of the shirt. Also I think there is a setting on the machine that will cute the thread in between each letter. But for the most part it looks good, good enough for him to wear to church today!!!

See how handsome!!!
That's it so far! But I'm looking foward to doing lots more!!!

Just Kooper

I thought I would post some picture of my sweet boy today. I'm actually at the computer this time and not my phone. I have a lot of pictures on here that I'd like to post, but for now...

Just Kooper!!

This is my favorite way to relax with my boy. I did this with Kynlie and it's so nice. A sleeping baby on your chest is such a sweet feeling!!!

I LOVE THIS PICTURE. I think I will have this one framed

He is so sweet. I still can't believe he is ours!!! We have a boy!!! He's a fat baby, but I love it. He's just healthy that it! He will be 7 weeks on Monday. That's hard to believe, but at the same time I feel like we've had him forever.
