Happy 4 Month Birthday, Cooper!

Ah, my little sweet pea is now 4 months old!  And how did he celebrate this big occasion?  By peeing on me twice, peeing on the pediatrician (yeah, didn’t feel bad about it at all–I laughed and so did he!), and by nearly having two up-the-back pooping incidents.  He also, thanks to the wonderful Rotavirus oral vaccine, projectile vomited a few times, too (lost count after three.  also, lost my mind and got shrill about the puke).  But a little puke and some extra CONTAINED pooping is way better than when Gavin had rotavirus…actually better than EITHER time Gavin had rotavirus.  Those were two of the worst weeks of my parenting life.   So if you’ve got little ones, talk to your doctor about getting them vaccinated.  It’s an oral vaccine and I think it’s grape-flavored.  Cooper liked it.

But then, Cooper is also 15 lbs 8 oz, and 25-1/2 inches long.  He’s in the 60th percentile for height and 75th percentile for weight.  He’s a bit of a bruiser.  Like you couldn’t figure that out with his incredibly deep thigh creases and his three chins.  Obviously Cooper is not terribly picky about his food…yet (I’m no fool…I know things will get crazy at age 2 and/or 3).

 I promise I will post a couple new pics as soon as I remember to either (1) bring my memory card to work with me, or (2) sit my butt in front of my computer for 10 minutes once I get home.  I don’t know about you, but my money is on Option 1.

This is a blog where I will share my adventures and mundane tasks as a work-out-of-home-mom. I now have 2 kids and my wonderful husband, so the juggling has gotten a little bit more tricky (man-on-man defense). We also have 2 dogs and 3 cats (we used to have 4) so as you can imagine, our household is pretty busy. Since I never feel like I'm being listened to, I figured I'll just start talking at the general Internet community and see what happens.



How adorable…Cooper and I share a Bday…kinda. I turned 21, he turned 4 months. I mean really whats the difference? Sounds like his symptoms are just about right for a 21st bday…not mine of course.
