Cooper's Newborn Photography

You all know my photographer friend is amazing!  If you've spent any time on my blog, you know that. I cannot say enough good things about her.  She took Cooper's newborn pictures about 10 days after he was born (sorry I didn't post this 3 months ago), and they turned out so great!!

sorry you had to see that, Coop.

Bs first day of school

Yesterday I sent my daughter to school for the first time, and it was wonderful!  When living in Modesto we had planned on sending her to Lighthouse Preschool, which is at the church we went to there.  Since we weren't there anymore, we had to figure out another option, but I knew I wanted her in preschool.  I know preschool isn't necessary, but I have seen some research about the pros of preschool.  I was homeschooled, and I knew I definitely did not want to go down that route, and Matt didn't want me to either, but I also don't want to do public school.  My mom is the kindergarten teacher for Ygnacio Valley Christian School, so that was our obvious first choice.  The preschool meets at a church down the road from the main school campus.

Any way, I dropped B off at 8:25, walked her in, and she started playing with some toys.  Cooper and I left and went to Starbucks and spent 3 hours there! I studied my personal trainer information, and Coop slept (it was delightful).  When we picked her up, she was so happy.  She was ready to come home, but had such a great time!  Her teacher said she did really well, listened well, and had fun playing.  One of the projects they did was a book mark with a ribbon attached tied in a bow and it said:

"1st Day of Preschool
This ribbon is very
special, as anyone
can see...
Untie it...and it is
the exact same
size as me."

Such a cute idea, so, I put it in her baby book.

I took this as we were heading out in the morning.  She's so cute!!

Cooper is 3 months!

I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love this little buddy.  He is so cute, and so much fun! He's still sleeping a lot, 3 big naps a day, and 8-11 hours at night. He sleeps on his back in a swaddler wrap for bed time, but most naps are on his tummy.  He smiles whenever he sees Matt  (and everyone else Matt said it's only him). He's started to play with the toys hanging from his bouncy chair, and even though he doesn't enjoy tummy time, he's able to hold his head up high for a good amount of time.  He does a great job in the car and his car seat, and enjoys being in the Ergo.  We are still LOVING our BumGenius cloth diapers, and we (yes, even Matt) totally prefer to use them over paper.
