Love the Chubs!!

I pretty much spend all day long kissing on these cheeks! He's such a chunk! I can't wait to see what the doctor says at his two month check up next week!

Day at the Museum

We had another memorable Cook/Deane Ladies Day. As always, we had a marvelous time with many crazy happenings (some we will NEVER share!!). We went to the Science Museum in Dallas and had a great time. The girls always have an amazing time together. They drove us nuts, but that is to be expected! We laughed all day!
After the museum, we headed to Northpark (Yeah, the girls may never be allowed in there again...) and did some shopping for Laura's TV appearance the next day!
Love you girls!!

Work it!

This morning was the women's luncheon at church and they had a very special event- a style show. My sweet and adorable friend, Emily, was one of the models. She did a great job. It was all I could do not to cheer to make her laugh! Way to go Em!

One of my favorite ladies in the church, Mrs. Helen Yeatts, was also one of the models She has been a member of the church since the 1940's! What a great example she is to us!

Another one of my precious friends, Susan, provided the music. She is so cute and did a fabulous job singing!

Our sweet friend, Hailey, was kind enough to snap some pictures of the kids yesterday. She is so talented! It was early in the morning, so the gardens were pretty much empty. We had a great time and got some beautiful shots. Here are a few of my faves...

And these are just a few of the many! Check out her blog for an entire slideshow and for info on Hailey!

These are a few of my favorite things

We were SO blessed to receive so many wonderful gifts! Here are just a few that jumped out to me lately!
I have received more compliments on this diaper bag! I love that it has stroller clips so I don't have to waste the storage space underneath! Thanks Joe and Laura!

One of my favorite students from last year and his family got this outfit for Cooper. Red Sox stuff is impossible to find around here (about as impossible as it is for the Rangers to find pitching...) so I was thrilled!

A sweet girl at the church makes these! I especially love the pacifier clip that is not in this picture. You can look on her website to check out all of her cute swag.

Papa has taken to occasionally calling our little guy "Mini Cooper," so of course he had to go online and get one for his room!

Cooper Playing

Pardon my annoying Mommy talk in the background and OF COURSE I turned it off right before he busted out a million dollar grin!

Tricycle Day

Caroline had tricycle day at school today. She had a blast! They had a little town set up outside and they were able to do things like go through the car wash, work in the garden and did up vegetables. I love our church preschool!!

Happy Easter

We enjoyed a great Easter Sunday. The service was wonderful with a great sermon as always!! After, we headed to my folks' house with a bunch of friends and family. Yummy food and a great egg hunt!

A very sleepy Easter basket

Not our greatest picture. I wish you could see Cooper's Easter outfit better!

Caroline took a little tumble...

Easter on the Farm

We went out to Chris' mom's farm and had a wonderful time hunting about a MILLION Easter eggs. Caroline was tuckered out by the time we headed home. I spent Saturday morning decorating cupcakes which is so much fun for me!

Patio Fun

Last Thursday night we took the chance to go out to Central Market and eat with some of our best buddies. The wind was RIDICULOUS that day and the smoke from a fire out west was really bad as well, but it turned out being perfect! The food was yummy (except that Brad was the only one that got the best hamburger bun we all wanted!) and the conversation was such a treat! Love you guys!

1 Month Old!

Cooper turns 1 month old today.
Here are some of my favorite memories of this month-
*I loved the time we spent together in the hospital. To be surrounded by so many caring people that we loved was so special.
* Bringing him home and having my parents waiting there with Caroline and cameras!
*Introducing him to all of my family, especially Aunt Allie! The time she was here was so special!
* Surprisingly I love the time I have with him at night. I am so tired but he is normally so calm and alert.
* It has been so much fun to see him become more alert! He has the most precious blue eyes and I can begin to see his personality in his expressions.
*He smiled for the first time this past week and I swooned! His entire faced lit up! I'll never forget it!
*He started sleeping 6 hours last week and made it 7 and 1/2 last night! What a blessing!

I can't wait to see what month 2 holds!

So Cool!

They took the old fashion scoreboard out of the Rangers Ballpark. I loved it because they changed the score by hand and I loved that because it was a throw back to the old stadiums. The only neat part about them taking it out was that they were selling the numbers they used. I was excited to buy a number for Cooper's room! I hope it's something he'll keep forever!
