My man Cooper!

Cooper has been so much fun lately! He is starting to show his great personality and is more alert to the things around him. He can now focus on things that are pretty far away. He will watch Brady and I walk away and he is now able to focus on the TV. I don't like that he can watch TV so now we need to make sure he's not watching it when it's on.

Cooper smiles ALL the time! He is one of the happiest babies I have ever seen-of course he has his fussy moments but he is pretty great most of the time. He has giggled only a few times and it's so adorable! I can't wait for him to giggle more! His little legs and arms are starting to kick and wiggle more. It's so fun to see him be active. He's no longer just a blob that eat/sleeps/poops!

He is catching on to a schedule perfectly! He has been sleeping through the night for over a week now. He goes to bed between 8 and 9 and wakes up between 6 and 7 (now that I have announced this I bet the streak will end tonight).

I took him to his 2 month check up and he is growing-but VERY slowly. He now weighs 9.5 pounds (5th percentile) and 23 inches long. I guess he's going to be a little guy. Our doctor is still a little concerned so he increased his dose of medication. This seemed to decrease the number times he spits up. Hopefully he will gain more weight in the near future.

Life has been great with all of our changes. We started packing the other night and there are boxes everywhere! Brady went and picked up our keys to our place in Twin. We are renting a duplex that has a garage and fenced in back yard. We're pretty excited to not have to rent a storage unit and to let Missy run outside! It will be fun to have a private back yard of our own.

First packed box!
Cooper's new toy! He LOVES looking at himself in the mirror
Just relaxing

Cooper is so adorable! I love his little smiles :) Good luck moving, Chris and I are potentially facing a move soon... I'm not so excited about all the packing stuff!

It's so fun to see Cooper going through the same phases as Liam! I love it! They are so much fun aren't they! I'm so jealous he's sleeping through the night. We're still on a two hour schedule. Oh well...I'm glad you guys found a place. Moving is no fun but it looks like you guys have some fun things to look forward to!

Zaya used to be in the 5th percentile in his weight too. I was worried about him. Then once he reached four months he started to put on the weight. He jumped up all the way to the 20th percentile. It's so hard not to worry about stuff when you're a mom. At least for me anyway. Hope all is going well with the move. Call us if you need any help. Glad he is sleeping through the night for you and is so happy. That always makes things nice. :)
