Two Weeks Old!

Look at him! Is he a little dude or what?! :)

Cooper is two weeks old today! Everything is going great! He is just about over the thrush-woohoo! We will continue with the meds for at least another week to make sure it is totally gone. Cooper is doing well with sleeping in his bed. He takes a morning and afternoon nap in his bed, as well as sleeping in his bed at night time. He wakes up around 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. after his last night time feeding, so he is doing pretty well! Sometimes he likes to stay up for a while around that 3 a.m. feeding, which is a little tiring, but that is not every night. He is still eating really well, and starting to fill out a little in his face. He has also been smiling every once in a while-and not just when he is sleeping! :) He definitely will react and smile when we are playing and talking to him. It is very cute. I have yet to capture it in a picture though!

So far I am surviving being at home with both of them! Actually, it has been a really great week! Everyday this week they have been napping at the same time in the afternoon, so that has really helped with getting stuff done! I also have managed to get showered, hair and make-up done everyday! woohoo! It's nice to feel like a "normal person."

Ella has been such a huge help and is a great big sister! She loves to help me get his diapers, and give him baths. Her new favorite thing is to play with him on his playmat. It is so cute to listen to her tell him what everything is. :) You can tell he really enjoys her. His little face just lights up when she plays with him!

Just Playin'

We got out the play yard gym for Cooper today, and Ella and Cooper had some quality bonding playtime. :)

So things are looking up from earlier today. :) I am feeling better from my cold, and I think the meds are working for the thrush. I think Cooper's tummy troubles may have been from getting use to taking the meds, or from something I ate because he has been fine the rest of today. We shall see how tonight goes.

On a happier note, more pictures are up on the website in the October section! (Kelly, I promise I will try and use the programs you set up soon-I haven't had time to look at them!)

Sailing in a boat with a hole in it....

DANG! That is what it feels like lately! I came down with Ella's head cold, and believe me-a cold and sleep deprivation is not a good combo. Then on top of that, Cooper and I have thrush. :( Poor baby went from being content and happy all the time, to being just plain miserable! His mouth hurts, so he is reluctant to eat, and I think the medication makes his poor little tummy hurt. We were up most of the night last night. So, send any extra prayers you have our way. It would be much appreciated!

Anyone have any tips for knocking out thrush in one round??

One Week Old!

It's already been a week! Cooper is doing so great and he is such a sweet little baby. He is on a good night schedule now. For the past two nights I have fed him at 10:30 p.m., and then he wakes up at 3:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. to eat. Not bad for a one week old! He spends his days sleeping, eating,making dirty diapers, being loved on and being his cute little self...what a life!:)

We are all adjusting well to having a new little one in the house! Now everyone needs to start sending me prayers and positive thoughts for next week when I am *gulp* ON MY OWN! eek! ;)

Healthy Boy! Cooper's First Doctor Appointment

Cooper had his first check-up with the pediatrician today to make sure he is growing. He is doing great! He weighed in at 7 lbs. 8 oz. He left the hospital weighing 6 lbs. 12 oz- the doctor thinks there is a difference in the scale at the hospital and the one in the office, because it seemed like a big jump. But needless to say, he is eating well! He also measured 20 inches long-up 1/2 inch from birth! Everything looked great, and we go back in a month for his one month check-up.

We're Home!

Well, we are home and happily trying to adjust to life with another person in our life!

Cooper is doing great and is such a sweet little guy! He has his days and nights a little mixed up, but we have been working on it a bit and he is switching them. Last night he slept for 4 hours in a row, so we are getting there! The sleepless nights are worth it though-there is nothing like having a newborn baby around. :) Tonight he had is first bath at home. He was deinitely not a happy camper about it and tinkled all over. haha!

Ella has been such a great big sister and is a super helper! She definitely loves her baby brother and wants to hold him ALL the time! She is such the little Mother. :)

Reid is staying home this week which is SO nice! He got up with Ella the past couple of days and let me sleep in-it was SO great! He has been entertaining Ella and taking her where she needs to go which has been a great help. Today they were gone all day at various places, which gave me the day to spend some quality time with Cooper and some time to get things done around the house.

Here are a couple of pictures since we have been home! More pictures on the website as usual.

He's HERE!!!!!!!!!!!

Cooper Thomas Greven arrived this afternoon at 4:13 p.m.!! He weighed in at 7 pounds 1 oz, and he is 19.5 inches. He was born after 5 hours of labor-and less than 15 minutes of pushing! go me! ;) Dr. Lewis (My primary doctor) delivered him and he said he was fighting and pushing his way out. Must have been all those kickboxing classes! haha! ;) He is doing GREAT and is such a sweet little baby. He is nursing like a pro and is just as cute as can be. He has light red hair just like his big sister and dark eyes. There are lots of pictures on the October section of our website, but here are a couple of pictures for your viewing enjoyment.

The Big Day!

Today is the day! We will keep everyone posted! Pics to follow tonight hopefully!!

I just have to brag on Ella for a minute. For the past three weeks she has woken up in the morning with a DRY pull-up! She has been day trained since she was about 27 months, but the night time has been a slower process. We just decided to let her body be ready when it was ready at night time-and now she is!! Yay!! Last night she wore panties to bed (which she was SO excited about!) and she woke up dry again!

Horray for Ella!! :)

A Wet but FUN night at the fair!

Tonight we made our annual trip to the Cumming Country Fair! We were starting to wonder about our fair plans for the night when it started thunderstorming at about 3:30 this afternoon and continued to rain throughout dinner until about 5:30. We were SO glad it stopped because we would have had one seriously dissappointed little girl on our hands if we couldn't have gone! She had been looking forward to the fair for a while now! So, we finished up dinner and headed to the fair. We get there, pay to get in, and purchase our ride tickets....then about 10 minutes later it starts raining again. We decided to stick it out and we had a BLAST! Yes, we got pretty wet, but we had tons of fun none the less! It ended up being a great time to go because the rain was keeping people away! We didn't have to wait in any lines. Once the ride tickets were gone, the ice cream cone was eaten and a few tears of sadness over leaving were shed-we headed home, took all the wet clothes and tossed them in the washer, gave Ella a nice warm bath and put her to bed. She is already saying that we need to go again "next time." :) More pictures on our website in the October section! The link is to the left.

39 weeks!

Today I had my 39 week appointment. No change from last week, and my induction is scheduled for next Thursday morning! woohoo!

Ella, my Mom and I had a nice girls day today! (Daddy had to work today) We went to get pedicures then for lunch. It was lots of fun! I think after naptime we are going to head to the mall for a bit since it is a rainy day here. Ella wants to take a ride on the "Miggly Round" as she calls it. :)
