9-months and always moving!

The Tuesday of Thanksgiving the Coop man turned 9-months old. However, I had the day off that day and was baby-free (thanks Joyce), so my day was spent getting my hair cut and nails done, ate lunch like a normal person, went to dinner with my husband AND sat at the bar, but MOST importantly I went to see Breaking Dawn. Seriously? Best day ever.

So, back to Snoop.

Cooper is 9-months old and busy. Like a bee. This has been a big month, lots of new things have happened. He started crawling and got FAST, he cut two teeth over Thanksgiving, he gives kisses (and melts your heart), he waves when he sees daddy (and/or sticks his arm straight out), he loves listening to this one Sarah Bareilles song (random), and he has super-dramatic faces. In a nut-shell. Also, as you may have noticed, he has more hair now. Slightly. And finally, his most favorite play time activity is emptying, well anything. Cabinets, my make up bag, laundry baskets; you'll notice no toys mentioned here, because he is SO not interested.

It's so special to spend holidays with family and our new littlest member. Coop's first Thanksgiving was spent with Jeff's family here in Colorado. We had three kiddos all under 3 (one more to join us in April), and it was so special to get them all together. Great food, great company, and fun board games = a wonderful holiday. I always hate leaving Jeff's parents house.

And now as we enter on December, even more special memories will be made celebrating Cooper's first Christmas. I can't even believe it. If our house decor is any evidence of our enthusiasm, we are going to have a great season!
