Cooper's pictures

So we got the pictures of Cooper back tonight and here are a few of them. Of course my favorite is the clothesline picture on the header. I think Cooper took the first two lines of the Arkansas fight song literally..."Hit that line...Hit that line..."

This weekend wore Cooper out!

Mommy has been sick most of the weekend and quarentined to her room. Daddy played with Cooper so much that the little guy is just worn out! Here are a couple of pictures of Cooper playing with Allie (his dog) and then crashing in the Jumperoo. I am also going to try to attach a little video of him jumping and fighting sleep. Too cute!

Weekend Fun

We have had a relaxing weekend. Here are some picture of little Coop playing with his octopus and his new Jumperoo. For those moms that don't own one of these, do yourself a favor and get one. Cooper absolutely loves it and will sit and play and laugh for hours. He is so cute in it.

Cooper has also found out how to put his pacifier in his mouth by himself. Hopefully this means that when he spits it out at night, he will be able to put it back in his mouth without Mommy or Daddy doing it...I know...yeah right!

The third picture is of the outfit Auntie Lou Lou got Cooper. Thanks, Lindsey! Cooper loves you :-)

This is my outfit from M'Amy

I completely forgot Cooper had this outfit so when Rhett came in this morning with Cooper all dressed, I about fell over. Again, I am biased but he was SOOOOOO cute! He continues to melt my heart every day. We got a lot of "Awe's" today!

This is what happens when mom gets bored!

So I was sitting at home just pondering how cute my child is when I got the idea to play dress up with him! I laughed so hard the whole time I was dressing him and he seemed to think he was pretty funny too. You can tell this child is going to have one heck of a personality. I have a little "beefcake" on my hands...ENJOY!

My Friends

Here are a couple of pictures of Cooper and his BFF's Kade and Jax. You can tell, he is used to being the center of attention.

Also, thank you to everyone for the sweet comments regarding Cooper's scare the other day. He has no idea anything is going on so that is fine with me. I will continue to update you on his progress.

We are going today to get family pictures and some "surprise" pictures of Cooper done. Be looking for a post with those in a couple of weeks. I am so excited!

Extreme Terror!!!!

Let me start this by saying that Cooper is going to be fine. With that said, I (mom) have had the worst day of my life! No one ever wants to hear their child's name and Arkansas Children's Hospital in the same breath, but we heard it today. Cooper has a lump on the back of his neck about the size of a golf ball. After hours at the doctor, a radiologist visit and back to the pediatrician, we have found that the lump is not cancerous however, we have to keep monitoring it daily for changes and inevitably, Cooper will have to have surgery to get the cyst removed. They are hoping they can wait until he is about 2 years old to take it out but as I said, we are monitoring it and any change might constitute surgery. If he has to have anything before 2 years old, he will have to have it done at Children's Hospital but at least we are so close to the best of the best!

He was so brave and sweet through the whole ordeal. Every nurse was wrapped around his little finger and everyone keeps asking if he is always as happy as he seems. The answer is yes!!!!!! God has blessed us with the most amazing and happy child and I will continue to thank him every day for blessing us with him and thank him every day that our son is healthy! Even though it is a promising prognosis, please keep our precious boy in your prayers! You can't EVER have enough of those. With that said, I have to give a huge shout out to my dear friend Christy (Frits) Norwood. She had to live the nightmare of taking her baby to Arkansas Children's Hospital and the precious angel (Brycen) pulled through heart surgery with flying colors. What a strong mom!!!! I send this out to you Christy, with tears in my eyes and I salute your bravery!!!!!! You are truly amazing!!!!!

I have to run because I need to put my exhausted baby to sleep. He had a long day (and so did I)!!!!!

Tonight we are having Cooper's two best friends, twin brothers Kade and Jaxton and their little girlfriend Hutson over for dinner. Here are a couple pictures daddy took of Cooper and mommy since everyone complains that she is always taking the pictures and not in them. I will post more of the babies tomorrow. I am sure we will take a ton of pictures!

Summer Fun

Here are a couple of pictures of Cooper's first pool experience. He was so cute I almost cried!


I might be technologically challenged because I can't fiture out the slide show. Looks like I will just be adding a couple of my favorite recent Cooper pics. Please excuse the spit up.

New Blogger!

I suppose all of the rave these days are blogs so I am going to try this. Here we go! Long story short, Rhett and I have been married for almost 4 years in October. We were recently blessed with the arrival of baby Cooper! He is the love of our lives and neither of us could imagine life without him. He is such a blessing and we are so thankful to be his parents. For those of you that are expecting, you are in for the most amazing experience you could ever imagine. With that said, I am going to try and post a slide show of our little angel. Enjoy and expect many more fun pictures in the near future!
