I love my life

One my favorite things about two kids is watching them interact! Coops is only 4 months old and absolutely LOVES his big sister, and Abs thinks that Coops is the best thing in world. I LOVE it, and even though I know they will have their fights I am praying they will be life long best friends!

Abigail runs in to Coopers room when ever he wakes up, climbs the crib and talks to him and kisses on him. He smiles and coos the whole time- even when she gets a bit rough. Sometime I worry about her hurting him, but he never cries- he just closes his eyes and smiles. I love ever minute of this.

We were hanging out this morning and I filmed a bit of them interacting, enjoy!

once again

once again two months have gone by and I have not made time to blog!! I am really going to try to be better, cause I love to look back and read what we were doing and what I was thinking and learning a year ago. So here it goes to trying again to be a better blogger!

Today my precious baby Cooper is 4months old! I know, I can't believe it... these past months have gone by SO fast! Cooper is such a blessing in our life! It is amazing the love that God gives you for your kids. He is a big boy, 15lbs, 26" and smiles, coos, hold things, chews on his fingers and hands, and LOVES his big sister. That is one of the coolest things as a parent to watch my little ones love on eachother! Cooper smiles and talks to his big sister unlike he does for anyone else! And Abs is such a wonderful big sister, she calls me when he is crying and says"mama Cooper needs you." and she rushes to his side with his paci (even if he is not really wanting the paci) she tries to give it to him.

Cooper, I can't even begin to tell you how much I love you. God knit you together in my womb and your daddy and I are SO proud already to call you our son. You are truely an amazing gift to us from our Heavenly Father. You will not know the love we have for you until you have your son.... I thank the Lord every day for entrusting us with you!! You give me hope when I look around at our world, you give me a smile when I am at weakest point, you hold on to my finger and my crazy life around me stops for a minute, and snuggling with you and talking to you I feel absolutely content. I was worried I wouldn't be able to love you like I do your big sister Abigail, but God made my heart bigger and now I love both of you more then I even thought I could love something.

I am so grateful that the Lord has given me the opportunity and desire to stay home with my precious children. We have given up a second income and all that entails but when I look at these two lives that I am able to help mold and develop I get the over whelming feeling that I have THE BEST job in the world. I wouldn't give up one second of time I have been able to share with these two. I am learning to live in God's truth, and seek Him for my patience and trust.

We have had a wonderful past couple of months, and instead of trying to play catch up I will just add some photos, and hopefully start with blogging at least once a week....=0)
First a couple more pictures of Coop...

We have been to Pheonix with some of our best friends from Cortez the Conrads, we have been to Alamogordo and multiple trip to Las Cruces. To include watching my little sister Lizzy graduate from NMSU! We are so proud of her.

A guy Cody works with gave us buffalo meat! So Cap came over and helped process buffalo meat!! They worked SO hard and now we have a freezer full of wonderful buffalo!
Snuggles for Cap and Minnie and of course the famous little dude!
Hanging with Grammy on Mother's Day

Hanging out with daddy in the mountains
Exploring the Gila
Abigail's face when we told her she got to have an Easter egg hunt!!=0)
Loving the petting zoo with her best buddy Parker!
Well I would love to upload more photos, but I have a million other things to do before naptime is over. We are headed to Colorado next weekend to go camping and shoot a wedding!! I am SO pumped!
just a side note, I love my life.=0)

time flies...

when your having fun! And boy are we having fun these days!=0) Our days are filled with fun snuggles, giggles, potty breaks.. (yes Abigail is POTTY TRAINED!!) mom is pumped about that.
Singing, dancing, nursing, loving seeing Cooper smile, and living for bed time=0) A friend told me the other day that "the days are long but the years are short!" SO true, and my little ones are still so tiny, but I am loving and cherishing almost every minute of my life with them while they both fit in my lap and love for me to smooch and cuddle them.

Look who found his way into mommy and daddy's bed....
Cute little cuddle bug. Cooper LOVES to be right next to his mommy. When Abs was a baby she kinda liked to be put down and left alone, but not Coop! The closer the better.... so we are using the moby wrap alot these days where he falls sound asleep on my chest- and believe me- I don't mind one bit!
Cute little doobles is such a doll- can a toddler get any cuter is my question!? She is such a hoot and talked non stop. She is so sweet and affectionate. Tonight Cody and I kissed her on either side of her little chubby cheeks and she says "AHH, thanks guys!" =0) She loves to read, play, dance to Les Mis (I am starting her young), and she loves her little brother, she holds him, talks to him, squeezes him (sometimes a bit hard..) and tell everyone about him. "baby cooper is my baby cooper."
First trip to Church- 3 weeks old....

just hanging out...
Cute little Abs in her egg plant hat from Nana K
We took a trip to El Paso to meet the great grandparents! It was a wonderful trip and very special because Cooper William is named after my grandad William WOmack- a wonderful man who has spoken alot of wisdom into both Cody and I's life. Here are the great grandparents Womacks with the little ones.
bath time for my babies!
Cooper is 8 weeks old today, and I am not sure but on my scale at home it says he weighs somewhere between 12-13 lbs! Ya, he is HUGE! not just chubby but super long! We have his check up on Monday and I can't wait to see how much he has grown! So different from my tiny little Abigail who didn't wight 12 lbs till she was like 7 months!!haha

Cooper (and Abigail are so blessed to have such a wonderful family that loves them SO much!) Tons of Aunts and Uncles, grandparents, greatgrands, and even some adopted family member! We have had some wonderful guests come visit us to see and meet Cooper! And I didn't make 1 meal till Cooper was 6 weeks old!!! THank you SO much for all our friends and family who has helped us, continue to help us and LOVE us!! We are SOOOO blessed!


Nana K and Uncle Steve!
little baby bear, not so pumped about his first hike!
I literally have so many pictures- I don't have time to upload them all and sort through them!! AHH! I have more but I will have to upload more later!
We are loving life with our two little munchkins, but Cody is processing tons of buffalo meat and I should probably go help him- since I am pumped for buffalo burgers tomorrow night!!=0)

Love to you all!

Baby Coop

I took some picture of little Cooper last week, he was so good and let his crazy mommy try all sorts of things! But the best way to get better at newborn photography is to practice!!=0)

Coop is such a good little baby, he is a REALLY good eater, which is why is already growing out of the nb clothes. (Abs worn nb clothes till she was almost 3 months old) so looks like Cooper is going to be a big boy!
We are also working on the nursery- since we like to keep the gender a surprise, we just waited till after he was born to do a nursery and Cody has off all this week so we are working on it! I will take some pictures when we have it more set up.

He is very alert and already watches his mobile and follows your face or finger. We are so blessed to have 2 precious healthy children!
Abigail is doing great and loves being a big sister, she smashes his face and kisses him all the time. She is definitely acting like a little 2 year old- quite a little stubborn attitude, but with all the hard times or her testing us- she is such a precious thing that shows tons of affection.

A few more pictures of Coop- this week I am going to try to get some nice pictures of the 2 of them together (maybe even a family pic) but we will just have to see how that works out=0)

a little late, but Abs is 2

Precious Abigail is 2! I can't believe she is already 2! Everyone tells you that time will go so fast- but you don't realize just how fast until you are a parent!
Abigail has been such a blessing from God! She is so smart, so full of personality, and brings so much JOY to our lives. I can't even begin to imagine my life without my precious daughter.

I am going to try to be better about blogging more of my thoughts and feeling, and fun sayings from both my kids- since I now know first hand how fast time goes... before I know it Coop will be 2=0)
Here are a few pictures of Abs celebrating her 2nd birthday! She is SO fun, and LOVED bugs- so of course Aunt Maggie made her the best birthday cake a 2 year old could ever ask for- a BUG cake!
Most of our family and some friends came by and made the day extra special.
