Fall Around Here.

Autumn sure is a lovely time of year, don't you think? 

 Fall mantel.

We've been doing lots of nap time sewing...

 College football watching with Daddy (How bout them Red Raiders, huh?!)

 And 10K running. Silly me thought it was a good idea to run over 6 miles at one time. Like I said, silly me. :)

 Coop thought it was silly too.

 Okay, it wasn't that bad. I met my goal of running under an hour. By 12 seconds. ;) 

Sweet Cooper and Nemo in Coop's new favorite thing to push around, take things in a out of, and sit in. :)

I hope you're enjoying your Fall, too! I can't wait to show you Coop's Halloween costume next week! Can you say Man of Steel? ;)

15-18 Months.

Our Cooper boy is 18 months! His well-child check up isn't for a few more weeks, so I'll let you know his height/weight stats when I get them! 

The past three months have been great! 

At 15 months he was busy busy playing outside in the warm sunshine. For most of the summer I'd get him up and he'd drink his milk in the stroller while we went for a run. We'd come back and play outside all morning before it got too hot.

He loves bath time... Such a ham. 
16 months. Our new dryer box made an excellent fort! He still goes to bed around 7 and wakes up around 7. He has 16 of his baby teeth, and I think he's working on his two year old molars already. He's a drool box and is chewing on his fingers all day.

His vocabulary has been increasing so much in the past few months, and he began telling us when he needed to go potty. I'm not pushing it at all, but when he does tell us, we scoot him to the potty and he goes! It's not super consistent, but we're working on it.

17 months-we started cheering on the Hawks! 

Tearing it up with the high school ladies at the Cross Country meet. 

Busy playing with his letters. This is one way I get dinner cooked in the evenings! 

This is the other way. :) Speaking of dinner, he's still a good eater, and eats pretty much what we do!

 He loves climbing up the steps and going down the slide at the park. He's quite the thrill seeker! 

 Coop donned his pearl snap and we spent his college savings at the State Fair.

18 months. The Super Cooper.  He still loves his books, but also loves playing with puzzles. He says, 'he-pease' (help, please) because he can't quite put them together on his own. He watches his poems a few times a week when I take a shower. Not that I only shower a few times a week, he just watches the poems a few times a week. You get it. :)

Remember how Coop lost his best friend, his thumb? Well, he's been replaced by Nemo. My mom got him this a few weeks ago, and Coop's obsessed. I'm not sure why Grammy couldn't find something a little smaller and less obnoxious, but he loves it. He throws all of his other toys out of his crib, but "Ne-no" is smothered in love. All. day. long. :)

I know I say this every time, but time is flying and I'm so thankful for our little man!

Last weekend, some of my best girlfriends from college and I reunited in Lubbock (sans offspring) for a little girls weekend. Upon arrival, we watched this video and spent the rest of the weekend hashtagging our conversations and laughing our tails off.

 We hit up all of our fave restaurants from college. Our first stop was Spanky's for fried cheese. #arteryclogger

We stayed at the Overton, a nice hotel that did not exist while we were in school. #lubbockiscoolnow

The next morning we had coffee and breakfast at J&B before shopping at Hodgepodge and cutest little baby boutique known to man. #thatcreepymanistaringatme #unibomber

 That afternoon we took a stroll down memory lane walking around campus. #gunsup

 Enough said. #ourcoachishotterthanyourcoach

 That evening we ate a really terrible meal at Chuy's. It was still fun, though. #youshouldgiveusatip #choctawcherokee

Sunday morning we went to our old church before leaving town. #thanksgirls #goodtimes #rosasfortheroad #nyc2015
