four months old

I know that I say this every month, but time passes too quickly. Having an infant truly shows you how quickly the days, hours and minutes pass by. As adults the changes we go through do not manifest themselves the same way that they do with infants, but it is amazing how much we do learn, grow and change every day. Seeing an infant transform before my eyes has made me realize that every day, every moment, every opportunity does matter. Everything we do helps shape us into the individuals we are becoming. Cooper is shaping up to be quite the individual! He is so alert and so aware of the world around him right now. He recognizes his family. He laughs so hard at his big brothers. He loves Mommy & Daddy coming to rescue him after a long night's sleep. He gets so excited about things and laughs out loud a lot more now. He is very chatty. He is constantly lying on the blanket in the front room just chatting to anyone who will listen. He is definitely growing bigger each day. He weighed in at 14.4 lbs and is 24 inches long. He is a healthy, happy and strong boy. We have a hard time getting him to sit down. He loves to straighten his legs and stand up tall. We joke that he will be walking before he even rolls over. He also sits up very well. He can sit up on his own for a few seconds. He brings us so much joy. We love our little Coop!

P.S. Cooper does have more than 2 outfits...I just noticed that he is wearing the same shirt in 3 of the 4 pictures and the same overalls in 2 of the pictures. I guess I must like to use the camera on the days he wears these clothes. The truth is, I haven't been great about taking his picture this month so this is all I have...Enjoy!

I love listening to babies chatting. I think it is one of the best sounds in the world.

I can't believe how big he is getting- I do come check out all your blogs. It is a great way to get to know everyone better because we only see you once a year!
