Sunday news...

(Wow! 2 posts in one day!)

Today was Baby Dedication Sunday at our church where each new baby was presented with a bible and an elder prayed for them. Here are some pictures..

Also, on Friday, Cooper's Grandma (Lones) flew in to meet him. As we expected, they fell in love immediately.

Saturday night was big for us too. We had a Crawfish boil with a group of friends. We boiled 60 pounds of Crawfish, 10 pounds of shrimp, and fried 3 pounds of Alligator. We had a blast! The guys ate EVERY crawfish and only left a handful of shrimp and gator.


Saturday, all of Cooper's new friends returned home from a week of Round-Up camp. While Coop was sad, we will all have great memories from the week. This year, Billy charged all the "campers" to hold him or take pictures of him. Check out these pictures from Wednesday night... (notice the $5 bill in Coop's hand).

Time to catch everyone up!

This week has been loads of fun for Cooper and his Daddy. This week is "Round Up" at the college and is like a summer camp for the young at heart. These "campers" stay on campus and go to bible classes, history classes, and participate in other fun activities. Billy helps run the week long camp and Coop and I have been joining him for lunch and supper. Cooper has enjoyed meeting all of Billy's "senior friends". Last night was "Hawaiian Luau night" and Cooper and his daddy got in on the "action".

We have posted a video on youtube if you are interested...

Happy Mother's Day

This year was my first Mother's Day. Cooper and his daddy made it very special for me. They bought me a beautiful "Mother and Child" necklace and took me out to lunch. The day before they let me take a long nap and cleaned the house! What a nice weekend for this Mom! Many thanks to my Mom (Lulu) and Mrs. Lones (Grandma) for giving Billy and I such great examples of strong, Christian mothers. We hope you guys had a great Mother's Day too. We love you both!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Yesterday was a busy day for Coop and I. I had to give a review for my history final, so Cooper got to spend some time with Miss Tonya who held him and loved on him the whole time. After the review, I picked Cooper up to go to a "retirement" reception for Emily (one of my dearest friends who is leaving the college). Evidentally, the party was too exciting for him (see picture). He fussed for a minute, so I went to the next room to change him and before I could even put him on the mat to change him, he had passed out on my shoulder. We couldn't resist taking a picture. After the party, Cooper went to his first History lecture put on by the graduating history students. Coop was pretty quiet and very respectful. :) What a busy day!

Smiles from Cooper

I was so excited because this weekend I was able to catch Cooper smiling on camera! He has become more and more expressive and vocal. He is a very happy baby and we are SO blessed to be his parents.

Photo Op!

Today was picture day for Cooper and his buddy Brody. Brody is 2 weeks younger than Cooper and they will be great friends just like their mommies. :) I attached a picture of the 2 little men and one of Cooper and Clara (Brody's sister). Clara LOVES "Booper"!
