One Month...

Today Cooper is one month old! The days fly by so quickly...which may be due to the sleep deprived haze I stumble around in!!

I had lots of plans for cute photos to commemorate this first month, but Cooper has been having tummy troubles all day. This was the best I could get from grumpy pants...
He still sleeps a lot. I can't tell if it seems like he sleeps more than the other two because he is actually sleepier or because I don't have the time to pay attention to his awake times!
His brother can't wait until he stays awake more. I know Caden will love it when Cooper is able to interact with him.
Cooper is growing rapidly! He is going to be a big boy! His feet are enormous! They are longer than my pointer finger. Most of our newborn socks don't fit!

Happy ONE MONTH birthday, Cooper!! We love you!

And then there were three...

On March 30, 2011 at 7:03 am - we officially welcomed Cooper to our family! He was a bit early but everything checked out just fine! He weighed in at 7 lbs 4 oz and was 20.25 inches long... which happen to be the exact same measurements as his big brother!

It was a long and hard labor and for several hours the night before I was afraid they might just send me home! Finally around midnight we were officially admitted and began the long night of no sleep.
He was worth it though!
He was not a fan of his first bath!
Later in the morning he had the chance to meet his big brother and big sister! This big brother is particularly fond of little Cooper!
This big sister likes to touch Cooper's eyes. It can be rather frustrating! She can NOT be gentle with him... she just gets too excited!
Sometimes she has to get in trouble for poking his eyes... it's not pretty!

When we got home there was a welcoming committee in the front yard!

They couldn't wait to get their hands on him!

He's a great baby and is certainly loved! I think he will fit in quite nicely!
