Well...what a month it's been. You'll see from our pics that none of us look so hot this month. Since the last time I wrote, we've all had the stomach flu, neverending colds and 3 incidents of pink eye. Really?! So this is the way it's going to be...again. Gotta love daycare! Oh well...we trying to make the best of it.
Cooper is 1!!!! We can't believe it's been a year already. Poor kid didn't even get a real birthday party. Mommy woke up with pink eye (for the second time in 3 weeks) on the morning of his party. Given that it's so contagious (as evidenced by the fact that we keep passing it around!), we couldn't chance giving it to the other kids. So we canceled but did celebrate with our own little party of 4 since we had the cake, decorations and all the loot already done. We just made our own fun!
Mommy's been back to work for 2 weeks now and it's been a bit of an adjustment for all of us. Mommy's learning how to get two kids out of the house by 7:00 am (wowsa...not an easy feat. Dadddy's learning how to get two kids home and fed after school also not as easy as one might think!). The constant battle with one virus or another is not helping either! But we're trudging along and things are starting to fall into place.
Cooper is now doing much better at daycare. He's finally decided that the hunger strike was futile and he's eating well again. The teachers say his mood has improved quite a bit as well. He's actually giving them lots of smiles (and he doesn't give those away to just anybody). He's still not walking on his own but he can walk with the aid of only one finger so it's just a matter of gaining his confidence to let go. He's in need of a haircut but Mommy just can't bring herself to do it because she knows it's going to make him look like a big boy...she's just not ready yet.
Owen is doing well. He too has been hit by more than one flu bug this past month but he's a trroper as always. It was always apparent to Mommy that he has Daddy's personality but it shows more and more as he gets older. He loves to get a laugh and what a bugger! Today I was at the grocery store with him and he looks at a woman standing in the aisle and says "Momma." I said "what are you doing...that's not your Momma. I am your Momma!" He laughs like he's just told the best joke ever and says "I'm teasing you!" Of course, because he loved the reaction he got from me...every woman in the store got a "Hi Momma" before we left. Bugger!
Enjoy the pics! We miss you all,
Michelle, Doug, Owen & Cooper
