Cooper: 2 months!

Mister Cooper, you are two months old today!

And this has been a BIG month for you. You had your first Christmas, which was also the day you took your first bottle. You shocked the heck out of me when you downed four ounces in less than five minutes. And yes, I cried that my boy no longer "needed" me. I mean, you could have at least taken 10 minutes to finish that bottle. And for the record, you ended up with six ounces at that feeding.

Bug, you continue to be a big eater. Most everyone is AMAZED at how much you eat. You typically finish off three five-ounce bottles at the sitters - one around 9:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and another around 3:30-4 p.m. Your first day at the sitter's (another tear-jerker for mommy) she questioned that you take that much food and mommy thought you would only need two bottles, but you showed us! You continue to be exclusively breastfeed.

Miss Robin, your sitter, says you are such a good boy and she loves you to pieces! Well, duh! You usually take a good morning nap but cat nap most of the afternoon - you are afraid you may miss something. You are not a fan of being held with your head over the shoulder - you can't see anything!

The other kids at daycare are quite fond of you, too. When mommy drops you off, they'll announce "Cooper is here" or beg Miss Robin to pick you up so they can see you :)

Some days, you go through 2-3 outfits at day care. Whoops. You have some serious drool and need a bib some days. And you get very cold feet - but kick off those socks!

It doesn't matter what time you've last eaten, you almost ALWAYS want to nurse as soon as we get home. But that's OK with me, I like having that time to bond with you, lovebug. You usually take a short nap from 6-7 while mama cooks and we eat supper, then you play with us until bedtime around 9:30 p.m.

Although you hated those sponge baths in the kitchen, you LOVE being in the bathtub. Some nights we put you in your little tub, and other nights you bathe with mommy in the big tub. You are definitely a water baby and we'll have to buy you a pool for this summer.

You also took your first ride in Susie the Silverado this month.

While we caught a few smiles your first month, you sure have emerged as a happy baby this month. Every morning, you just pass out the smiles while I am getting you dressed. And that big gummy smile is SO precious. It's all I can do to go to work instead of staying home to play with you Mister! Grandma says to be thankful you are so happy (because your mommy wasn't the best!)

 You went to Church with mommy for the first time this month and were an absolute angel.

You are a very good sleeper! For the most part, you are sleeping through the night and have been since the last week of December - you slept 9:30 to 6:30 one day and it scared me! There are mornings that you wake up hungry around 4-5 a.m., but then there are days like today when I'm waking you up at 6:40.

Your two month well check is scheduled for tomorrow, so no stats to report right now. But I know you are growing just from looking at/holding you and seeing how your clothes fit. You have outgrown most 0-3 month sleepers (they are too short!) but the 3 month still fit. Most 0-3/3 month pants fit, but some of the shirts are short - do you have a long torso like mommy? You are still wearing Size 1 diapers because I stocked up quite a bit, but I feel you could wear a Size 2 with no problems.


You HATE tummy time. So we don't put you on the floor as much as we should, but we do make you hold yourself up while we hold you. And boy, you are strong. You "stand" on your own and have great head control - we've even used the Bumbo! Our Parents as Teachers coordinator thinks you do great, too :) Your big green eyes follow everything that's going on. You LOVE watching TV and like to curl up in Daddy's nook. Mommy pulled out the playmat about a week ago and you like it as well. Of course, the swing and bouncer are still favorites as well.

You are definitely all boy! Mommy and Daddy miss those "sweet" baby poops that didn't really smell. Now, we immediately know it's time to change your diaper and thank goodness for the Diaper Genie to hide the stench. You aren't very shy when you fart/poop either and can seriously clear a room.

Part of me is floored that you are already two months, while the other half doesn't even remember what life was like before you came along. I know it wasn't near as happy. It is such a joy to be your mommy! Happy two months, Mister Cooper - we love you SO, SO MUCH!
