Two Showers, The Princess & a Surprise!

WOW! What a weekend! I was honored to be apart of 2 wonderful baby showers for dear friends. On Saturday, we had a shower for Gretta Simmons...she is having a baby boy and a baby girl this October! She got lots of great things and it was so much fun for everyone to get together and celebrate this special time with her and her family! On Sunday afternoon we had a shower for Brandy Cambron who is having a little girl in October. Brandy and I have been friends forever and I am so excited she will be having a baby soon! It was great to see old friends at her shower. She also got a lot of great baby stuff at her shower. Both of the showers were at my mom's house...THANKS MOM! I know she is exhausted but she loves to have showers and entertain at her house. After the shower on Sunday afternoon, we went to Harper's 5th birthday party! It was so much fun! She had her party at "It's a GIRL THANG" in Cedar Hill. She was the Bell of the Ball! We also had a little surprise this weekend...my brother made a surprise visit from Austin! We didn't get to spend much time with him, but it is always good to see him! LOVE YOU TIO!

Yesterday was Kooper's Pa's 60th Birthday! We celebrated in style with John Deere Birthday hats! We went to our favorite place...Campuzano's...we should have stock in that place! We had a great time! Pa loves John Deere so Kooper wanted to dress up today and tell him Happy B-day! We love you Pa!

Kooper and I went to HEB today to get some fruits and veggies so I can make more baby food. I really thought I would just try out this baby food making business and then just buy it from the store, but it is so easy that I am still making it and don't think I will stop! It is so good! I just made bananas and they were DELICIOUS!

Anyway we were at the store and several strangers stopped us and looked at Kooper and told me how cute he was. Of course this makes any mother proud, but then there are the strangers, who cross the line!!!! I was getting frozen peaches when this lady comes up and says "Oh I just love those cute baby toes! They are so cute! I just want to eat them up!" Ok, not a big deal but right after she said it.....she actually kissed Koopers feet! The lady put her dirty MOUTH ON MY KIDS TOES! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I was in such shock...so just to send me over the edge...SHE DID IT AGAIN! I was in such shock I didn't know what to say! We got out of the store ASAP! I just want everyone to know that if I don't know you and even if I am a good friend of yous...I will not put my mouth on your little ones toes...and I think it would be a good idea if you did the same! :)

From Belly to Back

While I am enjoying every nap I can squeeze in...Kooper would rather not nap now that he is rolling over. He would much rather play. When it is his nap time, I put him down on his tummy. Lately if he isn't really tired he will roll himself over and scoot to his Baby Einstein toy turtle on the side of his crib and I will here the music through the monitor. It is so funny when I walk in and catch him. He just smiles at me and that makes it even harder to put him back down! He is smart and he knows that smile of his can get him a long way with me! I guess I need to take his turtle out of his crib but knowing Kooper, he will find something else to play with! :)

Nap of all Naps

For those of you who know me well, you know how much I love to nap. I love naps, especailly nice, long naps...I don't waste my time with college power naps anymore. Today my wonderful husband took the monitor and shut our bedroom door and let me nap while he took care of Kooper. It had to be the best nap I have had in months. It is funny how light you sleep when you are a mother(especially a new mother). Most nights Kooper is really quiet but you still know the monitor is on and you never fall deep asleep....I didn't want to get up today because I was had such a good rest. It is funny the things that are exciting to you when you have a baby! Thanks for the nap B! Love you!

Missin' my Tutu and Pa...

Tutu and Pa have taken their first vacation since Koop arrived...they have gone to Missouri to visit some friends. We really miss them...especially Koop...this is offically the longest Tutu has ever gone without seeing Koop...Miss you Tu!

Pa....does this remind you of anyone?

When Kooper started eating baby food, my dad told me a little story about myself when I started eating baby food....everytime I would get a bite, I would put my thumb in my mouth and the food would run all the way down my elbow. Well tonight my son decided he would find his thumb and do the same. After almost every bite, he would put his thump in his mouth, and even though the food didn't run down his elbow, he made quite a mess! I love the story...but not the mess!

Kooper's first trip under the water!

Kooper took his first trip underwater this week! I was a little scared of how he would react because I taught many a mom & tot class and saw what little ones did on their first underwater experience. But true to Kooper's laid back attitude, he did wonderful! Of course he has this look of suprise on his face when he comes up but then he smiles and all is well...I am so glad he loves the water!

Staycation 2008!

This year instead of a vacation...we had a staycation at my parents house. With the new pool and outdoor kitchen, it seemed like a great idea! My brother came in from Austin and we just hung out all weekend! We all spent the night and had a great time! This was also a family birthday party for my dad....He is going to be 60 next Tuesday! SHHHH!


WE DID IT! Kooper is offically swaddle free! He has been out of his swaddle for a few weeks now. He made it really easy on me! My mom (Tutu) was the biggest help! She even spent the night with us for his first swaddle free night. He woke up several times but Tutu was there to get him back asleep. I don't know what we would do without her! She does so much for us and helps me everyday! Thanks Tutu! We love you!

Morning Walks

Every morning we go walking with the Wright's! Kooper and I go over to Natalie & Davis' house and we walk for 45 minutes with the boys. They love it! Kooper normally naps, even though Natalie and I do our best to keep him awake. Davis has a few things he takes with him every day on our walk...he has his milk, his frog (who gets strapped in the extra seat beside him), a book, and a golf club. He just hangs out and plays with one of his toys. He loves to share his milk with Kooper. He will give it to me, and I lay it in Kooper's seat for a while. It is so cute how much Davis loves Kooper and loves to share with him. Of course while Davis is playing and Kooper is sleeping, Natalie and I do our best to solve the world's problems every morning at 8am! :)

The Head Chef

Brandon is the Head Chef in our house. I am trying to start cooking more, but he is just so good at it! For Father's day we got him a new outdoor grill of sorts. Some Saturday mornings he cooks our family and friends a wonderful breakfast! He cooks the best taquitos ever! He loves to cook for us and our friends and family! I am starting out with the baby food and trying to do some adult food! Who knows, maybe I will be his sous chef one day! :)

Koop's new hobby!

I am sure most you have been checking in everyday to see what we have been up to! :) We have been very busy, because Kooper has a new hobby! HE LOVES TO SWIM! His TuTu and Pa just put in a swimming pool. We have been out there almost everyday since it had water in it. Kooper loves to wear his sunglasses and cowboy hat. He just hangs out and relaxes in the water. He has NO fear! He loves it! So we have been busy enjoying the pool!
I just finished up another grad school class...only 3 more to go and I will have my masters! I am ready to get it over with. So we have been out and about! More later! :)
