Cooper has a little play mat that he absolutely loves to play under. It has support bars that he props his feet up on and kicks until the whole thing folds on top of him and turns him into a taco! He's so silly :)

Cooper has a new trick! He can sit up all by himself. We've been working on it for the past few weeks but two days ago he figured it out. He sat up for about 2 minutes before starting to lose his balance. I just can't believe he's growing so fast! He's not even 5 months old and he has 2 teeth, can roll over both ways, sits up, and giggles like crazy!!

So Matt and I decided to start Weight Watchers. Day 1 came and went super easily. I really like this plan, but then again it's only been one day! However I think that any diet that lets me have some form of ice cream is the right diet for me. We have prepaid for 3 months and we each have our goals set up so hopefully we will reach them! It seems to be much, much easier than some things we have tried since there are so many foods out there that are compatible with the diet and I don't have to cook every single thing from scratch for each meal. Wish us luck!!!
Cooper is doing great. He's gotten into babbling non stop and blowing his raspberries everywhere! His shirt is always soaked between the raspberry blowing and the two teeth that popped through in the last few weeks. He has also figured out that he has feet and he is a mighty big fan of them. He loves his puppies. Even as I type this Remi is licking his foot and he is giggling so loud. Such a cutie!

Man it's been a busy week! Cooper has been teething so sleep is a luxury right now but really he is being such a trooper! He wakes up once at night and just wants to eat and be held and he isn't too fussy. Now he has his two bottom teeth! Sometimes little boys just need their mama! He has learned to roll over not only tummy to back but can do back to tummy. He hasn't rolled back to tummy in front of me yet but I found him that way in his crib. On Wednesday I took Cooper to Matt's jobsite for their "topping out" party. I don't quite know how to explain it but I think it's when they have all the concrete for their building poured or the top of the building is now on. I have no idea but we had a blast! I bought Cooper a little hard hat so he could really fit in. He was a hit at the party and everyone loved him... but then again who doesn't? :)

Cooper had his 4 month check up and shots today. He weighs 19 pounds and is 28.5 inches long! He is in the 1ooth percentile for both height and weight! Such a big boy. Everything looks great though. He got his first tooth yesterday as well. It's on the bottom left side of his mouth. He's been a happy boy but has definitely not been sleeping as well as he has been. I'm going to miss his gummy little grin!

Well, it's the Fourth of July! That means it's been exactly one year since Matt and I got the news that we were going to be parents! What an exciting year it has been too! It's just gone by so fast.
We have had a good holiday weekend so far. Our air conditioning went out yesterday so it has been H-O-T but luckily the repair man came and fixed it today. Cooper spent most of the past 24 hours in only his diaper... he's so stinking cute! He also got his first pair of Sperry boat shoes. He's so handsome in them :) Today we are going to a 4th of July Barbeque so it should be lots of fun! Pictures to follow :)
