It has been 2 weeks and 5 days since Cooper was born. It amazes me how fast time has gone by and makes me sad to see the changes in Cooper since then. Jumping into parenthood has been a whirlwind of emotions! Most of the time I am in la la land cuddling him and staring at him...however, the late night screaming tests my patience. Brady and I are slowly figuring out the needs and wants of our little man. He has the cutest personality already and we love him more than we ever imagined!! Below is a few fun facts about Cooper:
-he is FURY! He has hair on his head (meaning it covers his entire forehead and a little on his cheeks), he has side burns that grow past his ears, shoulders, ears and back.
-he has 4 different kind of smiles and smiles ALL the time
-he giggles in his sleep
-he can hold his head up pretty well and the doctor said he is very strong
-he can spread all of his toes and his big toe is like a thumb!
-he loves to have his head and feet rubbed. It's the only thing that will calm him down in the middle of the night
-he gets VERY frustrated!! He definitely takes after me with this...when things aren't perfect he starts swinging his arms everywhere!
-his hands are his best friends.
-He is always playing with them and they are constantly up by his face
-he found his thumb...without the binkie we would have a thumb sucker :(
-he hates baths but LOVES running water. Standing near the sink with the water running is what we do when we're desperate for him to stop crying.-he is going to win the milk gallon contest someday. The boy can really chug his milk!
-his eyes are turning dark so we're thinking they're going to be brown
-his hair is curly when it's wet
-he rolled over from his belly to his back the first time we put him on his belly
-he can pass gas better than any other baby I have ever heard
I COULD GO ON FOREVER! So I will stop here.
Well, things have been wonderful and interesting! I am healing well and feeling great. Brady is such a wonderful father and has helped out soo much! Transitioning to life with a baby would be so difficult without his support and help.
Life is perfect
