16 weeks

Here is my 16 week picture before church on Sunday. I have started wearing maternity shirts, but I'm still wearing my regular pants with a belly band. I am much smaller this pregnancy than with Cooper. I'm sure that has a lot to do with chasing Cooper around and not being able to eat all the time. Hopefully, I will put on some pounds over the holidays - I know that sounds weird to say, but since I lost so much weight after Cooper, I'm afraid that if I don't gain enough this time, I will lose WAY too much after. Anyways, I'm sure it will be fine, but just thinking ahead. I started feeling the baby move around 14 weeks. Now I feel the baby alot! I know this sounds really early, but I've heard this is normal the second time around. I think that Matt would even be able to feel if Matt was patient! :)

Don't miss the new post below!

Christmas #1

Since we are not going to be at home for Christmas, Matt and I decided to do our family Christmas tonight. I was so excited to see how Cooper would react this year. He had already gotten a couple of presents from some church friends and Uncle Daniel and Aunt Julie, and let me tell you, he tore in to those! So I knew he would really enjoy having a lot to open.

So when Matt got home from work at 4:15, he distracted Cooper, and I got everything set up, then set him loose. Santa brought him an easel and a stocking full of goodies! Cooper wasn't really sure what to do with the stocking, but once he figured out that presents were inside, he had no problem sticking his hand in. He got some shoes, books, Baby Einstein movies, and an Cookie Monster and Ernie.

From me and Matt, he got some cookie cutters, big plastic animals, more DVDs and books.

Then my sister sent her present for Cooper to our house since we weren't sure if we would have enough room to bring it back in our car. So he got his Cozy Coupe a little early, but he sure didn't mind! Once he got in his car, he didn't get out for a long time! And this Cozy Coupe has a wagon attached, so he liked to go around putting all his Christmas presents in and out. Then he would get his sippy cup and put it in the cup holder. He would drive around for a little bit, stop and take a drink, then start driving again, and repeat the process over and over. He just talked and talked and played with his car!

After a little while, we put on one of his new Baby Einstein's (this is a VERY special treat for him - we don't watch TV in our house) and ate pizza in the living room. He was so funny! He danced and ate pizza and was so content. It was probably one of the funnest nights we have had in a long time. I can't wait to see how the rest of our Christmases go! Sure is going to be chaotic and fun!

The past few days

For Thanksgiving, we headed to Nashville to spend some time with Matt's family.  Unfortunately, Cooper was sick the whole time.  :(   But we made the best of it.  He ended up entertaining when it was important, so that was good!
He loves Elmo!

On Saturday night, we went to the Montgomery Zoo for the lights.  Cooper really seemed to enjoy all the lights and the people.

This morning before church, I got a couple of pictures by the Christmas tree.

And last, my last two belly shots!
