The boys are both doing well.
Cooper turned 3 months old this week. He's babbling a lot more but Mommy can never seem to catch it on video. Much like his brother, he refuses to perform on command. His 3 month MD appt is tomorrow so we'll know just how much he's grown then. It sure seems like he's getting heavy. Mommy is already tired of lugging that carrier around. Good news, his umbilical hernia seems to be getting better on its own (though I'm sure it probably looks alarming to someone who did not see it at its worst). The surgeon wants to wait until after he's 6 months old to see him as she's confident that it will heal spontaneously before that. Other than that, there's not a lot that's new...still refusing the bottle, the 23 different pacifiers Mommy has tried (he's very close to finding his thumb and Mommy was hoping to avoid that). We're still nowhere near sleeping through the night but he's done three 4 hour stretches this week (baby steps, right?!)
Owen has turned into a little man virtually overnight. We catch ourselves just watching him and looking at each other in amazement at just how much he looks and acts like a little boy...no more baby here. Over the last couple of weeks, Owen seems to have turned a corner with his sleep issues. Thankfully, he's back to going to bed on his own (which he had not done since we brought Cooper home)and he's only waking through the night on the odd occasion. Hopefully,it lasts. O turns 2 1/2 this month and since he seems to be well adjusted to having Cooper here, we've decided to throw in something new yet again. We're officially going to start potty training this weekend. He actually peed on the potty last weekend but has refused to get on the potty since. So...we're in in for the long haul and we're thinking it is indeed going to be a long haul....wish us luck!
