Cooper 1 Month

I am so behind on my posts!  Cooper turned a month old on October 7th (yes, I know he is 6 weeks now... I am a slacker!)  He has been such a good baby and we are so very blessed to be the parents of such amazing kids.  Cooper is getting so big!  He eats like a champ and gets very upset if you don't feed him immediately when he discovers that his belly is hungry!  If he's full he's pretty happy and will just go with the flow.  If he's not completely full then he'll cry at you (the cutest cry ever I might add) if you try to change him, put him down, or take the binkie out of his mouth.  At a month I can't really remember what he was doing (the days flew by way too fast) but as of today he has rolled from his belly to his back about 6 times.  He weighs a little over 10 pounds.  He eats every 3 hours during the day and every 3-4 hours at night.  He grunts and squeaks more than any baby I have ever met.  He has the cutest dimples but you only get to see them when he smiles in his sleep. We are convinced he will smile on purpose any day now as he always looks like he's on the verge.  He is definitely a binkie baby and I am okay with that for now.  He is now in 0-3 month clothes and size 1-2 diapers (closer to 2 these days).  He tolerates bath time if he's full and warm but hates it otherwise.  He is a cuddle bug and prefers to be sleeping on anyones' chest.  Finally, he has survived numerous attacks from his big brother already.. I have learned to not let Sawyer sneak up on us while Cooper is eating or being burped because he usually is holding something that he intends to hit Cooper with.  Things like a TV remote, a Wii remote, a toy, or a baby monitor.  Cooper is already one tough kid and only really cried when he got hit with the toy and that one left a bump and red mark on his forehead.  I felt terrible!  Sawyer has become very familiar with timeout. 

I haven't gotten the pictures off of my camera so they will have to be for another post but here are some from my phone.  This little man looks just like his daddy and has captured everyone's heart... just like his big brother did.
