{Cooper @ 19 months}

(I had to add this picture of D to show how he is watching big bro)

Cooper had his "18mth" checkup today, he is just over 19 months now. His well baby visit had to be puched back because he was sick a couple weeks ago when were originally scheduled to go.

Anyhow, here are his stats:

weight: 29.5oz (80th%)

height: 37" (>95%)

These days Cooper is all over the place learning and exploring. He loves to run around giggling, so proud he can run so fast. He is trying to learn how to ride his tri-cycle but for now he scoots along just fine on it. He throws and kicks the ball. Swings on the big boy swing and has no fear of slides. His favorite toys in the toys room are his trucks and blocks. He lays on the floor zoom-zoom-zooming his trucks around. When he does slow down he continues he will bring you a book to read to him and for him to show off how much he know by pointing to everything you name. Some of the words he uses are: dog, truck, ball, bat, tractor, outside, balloon. He is talking all the time, but we are still working on understanding him. He, on the other hand, knows what we are saying and helps us go get things and bring things with us all the time. He continues to eat eat eat. He loves anything wrapped in a tortilla and could eat pasta at every meal. He is too excited about fruit right now, hopefully this summer he will enjoy it more as a refreshing snack. Cooper is loving his brother more and more everyday. He sits and play toys with D, or simutaniously beside him, he has special conversations with him and is working on being gental with lil bro.

{just another MaNiC Monday}

The weather has been great lately so we have been spending alot of time outside. Once again, Brandon has been working on the backyard. I am waiting for my "backyard Oasis." In the meantime the boys could care less. Dillon likes to hang out in his walker watching everything and swings sometimes too. Cooper is all over the place. He swings, slides, climbs, trikes, throws, kicks, bangs, draws, runs, digs, and everyonce in a while he chills.

Spending time outside is so relaxing for all of us.

{out at the Ranch}

We ended up at Grandpa's ranch today. C met baby goats,

mama goats, donkeys,
more donkey's,
D enjoyed the sun shine,
and talked to Madonna,

the tractors were the big attraction of the day.
C loves tractors these days. We read books about them, he points them out on TV and while we are driving around town. He was so excited see all the tractors Grandpa has out there, but he was NOT excited when Grandpa offered to take him for a ride. I think the loud noise of it cranking scared him, so he just watched Grandpa move hay.

I think we surprised Grandpa showing up today, but we all had a lot of fun and we look forward to going out there again.

{Dillon @ 7 months}

Dillon had his 6 month well baby visit today. He is late getting his shots because his appointment keeps getting pushed back due to being ill with cronic ear infections.

The stats:

weight: 21.9 lbs (90%)

length: 29" (95%)

Baby Dillon is growing and growing. He is now rolling from his back to tummy; tummy to back; and pushing up. D is not a fan of vegetables, preferring bananas, pears, apples and yogurt. Sometimes it's a challenge to get D to eat when he is not feeling well, but bananas always cause excitement. Dillon is falling in love with his big bro more and more every day, watching Cooper and trying to take his toys. He is saying 'Dada' non-stop, making Brandon's heart melt.

Baby D is scheduled to get ear tubes in early April. I pray this makes my baby feel SO much better. Amazingly even though he has been struggling with ear infections since November Dillon can still smile as big as the sun!

I love this baby!!!
