Random thought

I need to know is anyone else out there like me??
I am constantly burning myself. I really am a smart person but I think there something wrong with me, I constantly am burning myself in the kitchen. When I put my fingers in the almost boiling water to see if its hot enough or touch a cookie sheet that just came out of the oven, grade a noodle out of boiling water:) touch a curling iron to see if its warmed up. Cody now just laughs when these things happen.
Does anyone else do this or am I the only one:)

Coop is to funny! He loves to have his feet up like they are in the picture. He does this in the stroller, high chair and even when he is just laying on the ground he has his legs in the air. He is so funny!

Yes he is naked, its been so hot here Coop has been naky for our evening jogs.

Happy Birthday!!

Cody turn the big "29" this year!!! He only has one more year until he is in the thirties and in my opinion 30 is getting old:)
For his birthday he wanted to go to the sod farm and shoot prairie dogs and drink koolaid. Then later that evening we got a babysitter and Cody and went out for sushi! I hope he had a great birthday because he deserves it. Love you Cody! And enjoy your last year of being young!!

4 months old

I'm just wondering where my little newborn went, Cooper is growing up so fast!! He is now 4 MONTHS OLD! He is getting so big and smart. Some things I want to remember this month...
- he is so smiley! He smiles all the time. People always comment on how happy he is.
- he started laughing. The first time he laughed at me is when I was eating lunch and he was sitting in his bumboo next to me. I stuck out my tongue and showed him me food in my mouth. He thought it was the funniest thing ever:) I did it over and over just so I could hear his little giggles.
- he looks just like Cody! This little boy at church says, " oh my heck! He looks just like your husband!" I think its the crazy hair.
- he is really good in the car. He just looks out the window. He will nap in the car but we found out on the drive to Utah the he wont sleep for more that 45 min at a time.
-he is super mellow. I really dont have to do anything for him. He is super happy just watching be clean the house, cook dinner and play on the computer. Im sure this will change one day but ill take it while I can get it.
-he is rolling over from his tummy to his back now! I was so excited to see this.
- he is so funny, when he was a newborn I was reading a bunch of books on helping your baby sleep. One author said that a vacuum will put your baby to sleep. Well one night I gave it a try and sure enough it worked perfect. He went right to sleep. We only used this if he cried more than a few minutes after putting him down. Anyways our vacuum started to wear down so I tried the radio static and sure enough this work as well. I LOVE IT! We really don't use it often only if he wakes up early from a nap to put him back to sleep in the middle of the night if he wakes up, the radio goes on and he goes right back to sleep. Its like magic!!
- no more swaddle!! Yeah, I was super nervous to stop swaddling him and one day I just decide not to do it and what happened? He slept better that ever! I'm so glad!
-he is BIG! He weighs 18.3 lbs and is 27 inches long. And he has lots and lots of rolls:)
-all though he is very happy when he is awake he definatley will let you know if he is tired. He turns into a very grumpy little baby. And I am very quick to put him down for a nap before it gets to late:)
-he is also very strong, he loves to stand on his legs
-our schedule is much much better than last month. Are day now looks like this. Goes to bed at 7:30 wakes up at 8:00 and has 3 naps during the day. Sometime a catnap in the evening if he is grumpy.
-he also started sleeping through the night and will sometime wake up at 5am to eat but usually makes it to 7.

It is so fun to be Coopers mom!! My only complaint lately is that I'm a little bored. I'm not use to staying home. My hole life I have either worked or gone to school. But I really am enjoying the freedom and free time to do whatever I want.
Life if good!!

~4th of July week~

I love Utah trips!! It is always so much fun. I got to stay for 10 days! Cody and I left Thursday night after he got off work. We figured Coop would just sleep the hole way. WRONG.... He was awake a lot of the ride. Oh well, next time we will know better than to leave at night.
The week was full of BBQ, family, friends, fireworks, movies, painting, zumba, walks and eating. Coop and I stayed at my parents house while Cody went home to work. My parents got to spend so much time with Cooper and I was able to get a little break and spend some time with friends and play for a bit. I had a great time, it was sad to say goodbye.

2 hours past his bed time and happy to be awake...
This is his face he makes when I tell him a story:)

My good friend Jessica!! So great to see her and catch up with everything that has happened in life (Its my turn to drive to Draper next time Jessica)
Tired little guy...
Jake killed a baby rattle snake up in the canyon.
I love arm wrestling! I usually win but I lost 2 people in a row. I think its time to hit the weights again so I can redeem myself!
Cute little cracks
My favorite dinner!!! Dutch oven chicken, potatoes and scones!! YUM

I cut 7 inches off of Jamie's hair. I love her short hair!!
Little miss Essie!
Coop always sleeps with his hands straight out:) so funny
His new thing is to suck on fingers.
