Stretching and a first for Mommy

Cooper has always loved to stretch. He does it every time I unswaddle him and when we feed him. I decided to take some pictures of him stretching. I think they're cute/funny!
He's also been pulling his knees up to his chest and rolling from side to side. I grabbed a quick picture of him doing this when I was changing his clothes and diaper. He thinks he's so funny!
He is so much fun lately! He makes Brady and I laugh all the time with his cute smiles and giggles. He really likes to laugh. When we go for a car ride we often hear him giggle to himself. It makes me so happy to know that our baby is happy.

Also, today is the first day where I actually hurt little Cooper! I was putting him down on his play mat and somehow my ring scratched the back of his head (weird huh?) When he started crying I kept telling him "oh it's okay. You'll be fine". I tried making him laugh and nothing would help. So I picked him up and hugged him and that's when I noticed a good sized mark across his head. It was white and raised. I felt really bad after that. He then calmed down and went on with his usual happy self!

Oh Chels! I felt so bad! Then when I was giving him a bath today I was just getting his hair wet and I made the water go down the front of his face! He didn't like that much. I am not a good mother today :(

I love it when they stretch too! It's one of our favorite things about him! But his giggles are even better! Miss you!

My ring scratches my baby too... I feel aweful when it happens. Sometimes I just don't wear it at home just for that very reason...
