Owen and Cooper are both growing like weeds.
Cooper is now 9 weeks old. He was 14.5 lbs at his 8 week appt...MD says there's no doubt that he's healthy! LOL On the downside, Cooper was born with an umbilical hernia, which typically resolve themselves but his seems to be getting worse so we're being referred to a pediatric surgeon. They will likely just monitor it for now. Luckily, he doesn't even seem to notice it's there! He's now smiling all the time and starting to babble...which makes up for the every 2 hour wake up calls through the night.
Owen is doing really well. He seems to have adjusted to having Cooper here although he's still going through some sleep difficulties since Cooper's arrival. He absolutely adores his brother though and has become a great little helper. When Cooper cries, he yells out "sec Cooper" (as in wait a sec Cooper) drops what he's doing and runs over to soothe him. It melts a mother's heart! Owen is now talking a lot more. He's also a pro at mimicking us now and he thinks he's hilarious. His new thing is to get a rouse out of Mommy by calling out for her saying "Chelle" (as in Michelle). Mommy's inital reaction no doubt reinforced the behaviour so he thinks he's telling the best joke ever! He's also starting to take a little interest in the potty. He asks to go but has yet to actually stay on the potty once we get him there. Now that things have settled down here and he seems to be adjusted to having Cooper here, we might take a serious crack at potty training within the next month or so.
Other than that, there's not a lot new. We're just trying to enjoy every minute because we know just how fast it goes.
