Four months of Joy

I can't believe that Cooper has lived in our home for four months. He is such a joy! He rarely cries, loves to be held and cuddled, drools tons and is easy going. This month, he laughed at Cadence. He is tracking very well, reaches constantly for toys in front of and above him, making loud, fun, squealing sounds, smiling often and is still spitting up. He does not like to be left alone in a room for even a few seconds. He plays in his saucer (actually spins and hit the toys on it). Taking a bath in the big tub is one of his favorite things. He kicks, sqeals and splashes like crazy. He can sit by himself for a few seconds, but eventually jerks backwards or sideways with excitement!!! Oh how I love this sweet boy!!! At his doctor's appointment, he weighed 18 lbs, 11.5 oz. which is the 95%ile. Yes, he has already doubled his birth weight!!! He is 27 inches tall which is also in the 95%ile. He is a big, healthy baby! The doctor was very impressed with his strength and skills!He is heavy to lug around, but I am so grategul to have him and that he is so healthy. The doctor said that usually big babies are sedentary/not as active, but could tell that Cooper is a wiggly. active baby.
My fear that Cooper would have a flat spot on his head did not happen!!! Cooper head has a beautiful, symmetrical shape!!! Yeah!


Cadence loves Cooper and tells him often, "I'm so glad you came to live (or visit) at our house. They are best friends!!!
Cooper, I love you very deeply!!! I'm glad you chose to come to our family.

Cute pictures. I especially like that last one of Cadence and Cooper together. He is growing so fast!

Sorry we missed preschool today. Bridget has some weird rash - didn't want to risk it being contagious.
