Kooper - 6 Months

Hard to believe our boy is 6 months old. A half a year old. WOW time really does fly when you're having fun. He is as amazing as he was the day he was born. I could not imagine our lives with out him. I can't even remember what we did with out two kids. HA!

We had his WCC yesterday. He got a great report. Not to our surprise he's a big boy! He weighs 20.312 lbs (honestly I'm not sure .312 is 31oz?) and he's 28.15 inches long. He's in the 90% for weight and 95% for hiegth

He has his two bottom teeth and working on the two top. He's sitting up by his self. He rolls from back to front, but not front to back very well. There's a lot to roll HA! He's gibber gabbing a lot, saying DA DA DA when he's crying and M M MA sometimes. He love to make spit bubbles and stick his tongue out.

He's been trying to crawl. He'll push up on his hands and kind of bend one knee. I'm ok if he doesn't crawl for a little while. I'd kinda like to keep him a baby as long as I can HA! He LOVES LOVES his sister. He will laugh at her all day long....if she's being nice HA! He loves when she plays Peek A Boo with him.

He really enjoys taking a bath but does not like getting out and getting lotion and pj's on. Him and sister both cried at this age after bath time. He's also very attached to me. I have to hide from him sometimes or he's going to scream for me to hold him. If I'm in the same room and I'm not hold him he's a mess. Sister was the same way too.

He's not my best eater. He loves to nurse and WILL NOT take a bottle. He's not big on the baby food. He'll eat some fruits and he's ate the beef pretty good but he will not eat everyday for me. I'll try oatmeal with fruit for breakfast and I'm lucky if he'll eat 3 bites some days. We'll go a day or two with out baby food because he just refuses to eat. But he'll nurse until the sun goes down....and up HA! Not to be mean or TMI but the term "titty baby" stands true in our family. LOL!!! BUT, he's obviously not lacking in the weight and growth department.

He is not sleeping through the night. He likes to wake up around 2 ish and nurse for a little while and then he's out again until the 4:00 hour. He doesn't fully wake up (if I get to him in time) so that's good and he'll go right back to sleep. He will not take a paci so this is one reason I think he wont sleep all night. One BIG plus about breastfeeding is that I do not have to make a bottle at night and all I have to do nurse him in bed and I can fall asleep with him.

He really seems to like sesame street. I'll put it on and sit him in his jump a roo or on the floor with his boppy and he'll watch most of it and I can get things done. Im thinking a Sesame Street birthday?!?!

I'm truly enjoying having a little boy in my life. What a bond a momma and a son have!! He's my little man.

I saw on pinterest an idea for photo shoot back drops. Wrapping paper!! What a great idea. It's perfect because we have a play room with 3 very large windows that let in a lot of outside light and all I have to do is roll out the paper, tape it to the wall and when I'm done roll it back up!

I practices with it yesterday with some zebra wrapping paper I had left over from kynlies 2nd birthday.

It's not very wide. I may have to use two sheets. It's perfect size for taking pictures of babies. Anyway, this is one picture from my phone I took. The rest are on my camera

However, I did take some great pictures today of "Tinkerbell" and already put them on my Facebook so I was able to save them on my phone. I used hot pink wrapping paper this time.

I LOVE THEM!!!!!!!!

A Little Of This A Little Of That

The weather here has been so nice. We have been taking advantage of it and going outside a lot.

Kynlie jumped in the "trampatreen" while we laid on the picnic blanket.

We also played on the swing set Bradley and his dad built the kids.

I was laughing so hard at Brad for squeezing in that.

I finally went and got my bangs trimmed, my nails done, and a pedicure. I had me a little "ME" time.

I'm loving my nude color nails!

We bought Kooper a hat and I can't get enough of him wearing it. He's so cute!!

A picture of my favorite girl

Bradley's dad took this picture of Kooper the other night. He said it looked like he was saying Grace.

I've been car shopping (dreaming maybe). I'm hoping by summer we can get me a new car. I'm wanting a SUV of some kind. (Ive had a passat for 5yrs) I was looking at these 2012 ford explores. They are pretty nice. But I'd love to have a Tahoe!

My friend heather and I are taking our girls to Disney on Ice at the end of March. I think I might be a little excited!! I found this cute tinker bell shirt that she can wear with a tutu! (I haven't got it yet) oh the girls are going to be soooo excited!!

We are about to head on over to our friends house for the super bowl. So I better get...

Make beautiful memories

Today here in Texas, it's in the 70's!!!!! What?? And we are loving it more than anything!!

Days like today makes me feel even more blessed than I already feel about being a stay at home mom/wife.

While kyn was at school today, Kooper and I drove up to Dallas to visit some of my old friends at my old job. They had not met Kooper yet and it was about time seeing that he's almost 6 months old.

When we got home and kyn was out of school we took advantage of the awesome day and played our hearts out outside!

We pulled out the sidewalk chalk. Always fun!

We (I) wrote the kids names over and over in different colors and fonts.

A friend told me on Facebook to dip the chalk in water and it will brighten up the color. So I did! And it did! :))

Kooper enjoyed bouncing in his jump-a-roo! He loves being outside. I have some great pictures of him on my camera I can not wait to upload.

Now kynlie is at church with her nana and one of her favorite persons, her cousin Karlye.

Aren't they cute in their matching shirts I made them?

Koopers a sleep in mt chest and I'm loving it! I'm about to run to Walmart and figure out what's for dinner.

With Love
