We had a rather uneventful 1 year check-up, which is a good thing. Cooper still has a big head and short body :o). But that's okay he will catch up. We talked about his sleeping habits, and the doctor summed it up to teething and a virus which caused blisters in his throat. I had no idea he had it, but it will go away in a few days. We are now ready for year number two. Let the ride begin.

Happy 1st Birthday Cooper Jakob!

Once you were this small....

But now, you are this big!

We love you!

Today we celebrate the big ONE. Cooper is turning one tomorrow and the party is today. And it all went way too fast. When did he pass the infant stage and become this, well toddler. I am excited to see him walk and hear him talk. But really, no rush.

Snow in March??

Well, this is Oklahoma!

I think, wait I know, this is the first time Sam has really been able to play in the snow. He and his Daddy had a lot of fun out there. I even got nailed a couple times by a snow ball.

Sam: I want to sleep in your room.

Mommy: No, you have to sleep in your room.

S: If I go poopy on the potty, can I sleep in your room?

M: YES, if you go poopy you can sleep in my room.

S: Mommy, you go poopy on your potty and you can sleep in my room too.

Sam's "House"

Sam insisted that I take a picture of him in his "house". I miss having a child's imagination. I imagine about boring stuff like if the house was clean, all the laundry was done, gas was under a dollar, I had a maid, a personal chef.....

Kick Ball


Tonight you were sitting on my lap as I attempted to give you a breathing treatment. Across the room was your Daddy and brother sitting on the couch playing peek-a-boo with a big blanket. You were squirming around and I thought it was to get me to stop the breathing treatment. Which I did. And you still squirmed to get out of my lap. I put you on the floor and you crawled straight to your Daddy and reached for him to pick you up so you could play. You were all smiles from there.

Daddy's boy.

Tubes Are In

The surgery was quick and simple. He had an ear infection brewing in his left ear so there is a lot of drainage. I took a few pictures on my phone of Cooper before his surgery. They gave him some goofy juice to help make the separation a little easier on the babies I imagine Cooper was feeling pretty good (note eyes). I wanted some goofy juice too, they wouldn't give it to me.

Side Note:
Sometimes Cooper wakes up at night and we find the best way to get him back to sleep is to give him a bottle. Well last night, he couldn't have anything after 12:00 AM. At about 12:03 AM Cooper woke up..upset. At 2:00 AM Dave and Cooper finally went for a drive because nothing we did could make up for his his missing bottle.

Laugh Like Daddy

Disclaimer: Real scissors were not used in the making of this video.

I took a picture of his scissors too.

M: Why?

Hard To Believe But In 29 Days..

You will be one!!!

The past 11 months have just flown by! Hard to believe we have gone through Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and almost back to Spring again. You have just grown to a little boy right before our eyes. I say little..but..you are not such a little guy. At your last doctor appointment you weighed 25 pounds! I could not believe it. It is all in those cheeks (and thighs).
This past month, in addition to a blog a few weeks ago we can add pointing and playing "where's Cooper". You love to put anything in front of your face and appear when we "look" for you. It is so fun. You also know what no means but choose not to listen. It's okay you can get away with that for a little while longer. But know that Mommy means business :o). I have a confession, I no longer ready the "your baby this week" emails. If I could reach out to any first time Mom and have them actually listen I would say DELETE THOSE EMAILS. It is so much different this time around. The emails always prepared me (and made me obsess) for future milestones your brother would reach and quite frankly concerned me if he wasn't right on target (I now know how ridiculous that was). But with you, I have no idea what is around the corner and then you just amaze me with a new trick. I LOVE it!
You have been having a rough month teeth wise, those little teeth are sure making you loose some sleep. I am hoping that gets better. On Tuesday you are scheduled to get tubes in your ears. I say scheduled, because you have been running a low fever all weekend so I am not sure if that will change the plans at all. I almost think it is another ear infection :o(.
You are crawling and cruising around the furniture. Soon you will be toddling around the house! I am tired just thinking about that.
In fact, so tired that I am going to sleep now. Enjoy your last month as a 0 year old! One is going to be so much fun for you. We love you Cooper Jakob!
