Daddy and Cooper Time

I have to admit when I opened the door after I got home from work, I almost freaked out...I could tell Jeremy was asleep on the couch...and Cooper wasn't screaming in his crib, it was 4:30 pm, not normal napping time...then I saw this:

Melts my heart and I'm pretty sure this morning when I left to go to work they were cuddled asleep in either they slept all day and moved rooms, or they played basketball too hard. For those that even have to wonder which one, they must have played to hard, I saw the video on Jeremy's phone. Cooper can put the ball in the hoop all by himself, I'm sure that melts Jeremy's heart!

Getting So Big....

It's been another really busy week since I last posted. I shot Amber and Tim's beautiful wedding last Saturday, we went to the Yukon vs.Santa Fe b-ball game to sit with some old friends...Yukon actually played them pretty well. It was fun to see Drew Hall, Cooper's self proclaimed best baby-sitter ever, even though he's never babysat for us. Work also continues to be busy and I had a photo shoot for Edmond Outlook. Add a little project for the Wedels, picking out our $7.00 tree at Lowes, and playing a competitive round of games with my family, and that about wraps everything up. In Cooper news he's starting to stand by himself for a few seconds, if you can distract him long enough, and see below for more big boy changes!

This car seat has done its job....a little to big with his coat, so....

A big boy car seat was needed, still facing backwards and not to chunky in the car. Still pretty cozy in his huge coat, but when its the only boy coat found by me or my mom (thanks mom!) that's 6-12 months you gotta go with it!

He loves mac and cheese!

And of course grilled cheese too!

Tags are good...

So my parents read my blog...mostly to see pictures of Cooper; so this morning when I took Cooper over there (Jeremy's 7th grade team had a game...which they won!)because I had a photo shoot, my Dad asked me about the shows I listed...he said he hadn't heard of a lot of them....he's never heard of The Hills which I thought was crazy considering how much Speidi is in the media...especially since they eloped, this makes me realize that maybe I should find something better to do with my time then watch The Hills. But we all know I'm not going to stop watching The Hills...I love reality TV. So why is the post titled "Tags are good"? Because when I went to pick Cooper up my Dad offered to take us to lunch to the Spicy Pickle, which was one of my favorite resturants, if you haven't tried it you really if I can figure out how to get to Island Burger.Thanks Dad for lunch!

I know its been a while since we've updated this blog...but here is why:

-I've had photo shoots every weekend, except last weekend.
-Yukon's basketball season is in full swing, Cooper and I have not made an appearance at any games, but we're by ourselves just about every night, which makes for 1 tired mama
-Work has been so busy
-We made a quick trip to TX for Thanksgiving
-Finished half of our Christmas Shopping
-trying to catch up on laundry
-cleaning the house....again and again
-putting up Christmas decor
-I may have over committed myself to things the past 2 months, but it's almost all over

So to cheer everyone is apparently the "best baby they've ever had" and Santa Claus
