Dear Cooper // Week 28

Dear Baby,

Short & Sweet is what I feel like today. Our week was great, we are doing so good on our own.  We've had a routine for a couple of months now, but it feels like we're truly settled into it these days.  I think you've gotten the hang of being without me for five hours each Tuesday and Thursday, now it's just me that is heartbroken, not the both of us. It's better that way, I want you to have so much fun with your Auntie Ally, Nanny & Payton when they watch you.

You're now eating solids for breakfast (after nursing) and dinner (before bed-time nursing).  You've really gotten the hang of the whole eating thing and I'm proud to say that you've acquired a taste for a vegetable -- one thing at a time! Carrots it was this week.  I'm going to keep working with you on this because I don't want you to hate all vegetables like your Mama.

Daily walks have won out for your favorite thing to do, baths are now in second place.  Your love for the outdoors is contagious, I'm beginning to enjoy like I used to. I love watching you take in the world.

I've been letting you go without clothes each morning for a little while and you love it.  I'm not sure why I've always insisted that you be fully dressed from head to toe all the time, I quite like your little diapered self. 

You're waving is getting to be a little more consistent.  You don't like splashing unless you're doing it.  Balloons popping ten feet from your head doesn't scare you in the slightest.  You love to sleep in your crib. You love me and I love you more.

You're becoming quite the little wiggle worm and will roll yourself around the living room to your hearts content.  Jumping has become a staple in your life and if you're not in your jumper and being held by someone you like to jump in their arms, my little jumping boy!

We attended Abe's birthday party today, he turned three!, and I let myself go down that path I don't like to go down.  You will be three before we know it and it makes me so sad.  I don't want to think about you being a big boy.

I love you more than ever, sweetest baby alive.



  1. I thought about getting one of those jumpers for matthew, we tried it at a friends house one time and he loved it :) My sister said your little one is so cute, and she never says babies are cute so i thought you might like to know :)

    1. He loves the jumper so much!! It is so cute. Aww that was sweet of your sister!

  2. So sweet! The pictures this week really show that he is turning into quite the big boy! A beautiful one at that :)

    1. Thank you! He really is getting so big and looking so grown up these days!

  3. This is just so sweet, and he is such a gorgeous baby! Those eyelashes! My husband and I don't have kids yet, but you are definitely giving me baby fever! :)
