aaaaand We're Back!

I have a few minutes where both, yes, both of the boys are sleeping. Rare these days. I decided in my "free" time to catch up on the 'ole blog. It's been too long since my last post and so much has happened. Honestly, I've been putting this off because it HAS been so long and now it's sort of overwhelming to go back and document the last 7 months of our lives. Here goes nothing...

Two Year Old Antics...

We received a call this morning about 5:45am from my mother. Scared out of our wits and a little confused to be awakened from a deep sleep in the dead of night she let us know what our son had been up to. Apparently, she had been on the phone chatting with Cooper for about 5 minutes prior. He had called her, not once, but twice already this morning. A little startled to receive a call from him - and at that hour - she asked what Mommy and Daddy were doing. "Sleeping," was his reply. True. That is when she called us on our home phone to make sure that we were okay and that we knew that Coop was awake. We didn't.

We jumped up immediately and ran to find him. He was in his bed. Awake. And chatting with Nana again. Apparently, my cell phone had fallen out of my pocket, unbenownst to me, as I was reading him bedtime stories. He awoke in the middle of the night, found it, and pressed the send button (which he knows how to do). Nana was the last person who had called, so it dialed her back, and he chatted for a while.

It's becoming funnier as the day progresses. At 5:45am, not so much. However, my parents have gotten a good chuckle out of it.

So on the bright side:
1. I'm glad that he was still in his bed and not roaming around the house. The big boy bed is going to kill us yet.
2. I'm thankful for my husband who sent me back to bed and tackled our little early bird himself.
3. I'm thankful that Sean let me sleep in this morning when Coop wouldn't go back to sleep and got them both ready and took him to Chick-fil-a for a little manly bonding and breakfast.

All in all, it could have been worse. Someday, we're going to look back on this and miss these days. I don't think it's going to be today.

Merry Christmas!

December 2010

Hello Family and Friends!

This year as I sit down to write this letter, it is hard to know where to begin! We have had a great year, and hope that you have too.

Cooper is doing just wonderfully. He is 2 ½ now and is just growing so very fast. He talks up a storm – there is not much that he can’t say, or do, for that matter. He started preschool two mornings a week this year at our church and really has enjoyed his class, teachers, and making new friends. It seems like he is such a little sponge at this age, learning something new every day. He can say and recognize all of his ABC’s, knows his colors, and can count to 10 consistently. We are working on cutting, counting to 20, and potty training right now – but not at the same time. He loves all things fireman and anything with wheels. He favorite times are driving trucks and playing football with his daddy, and coloring with mommy.

Sean is still working as a Nurse Practitioner at Forsyth Comprehensive Neurology and Christal has taken a part-time job at our Church as the Interim Director of Early Childhood Ministries. Christal’s office is right down the hall from Cooper’s preschool classroom and loves being able to keep up with his day while being able to use her degrees outside of the house.

Speaking of house, we bought a new house in June. Parker has thoroughly loved his new yard with new trees, smells, squirrels, and birds galore! We have really enjoyed our new place, living on a cul-de-sac instead of a busy street, having a playroom, and space to spread out.

We are going to need the space to spread out because our family is expanding once again! Yes, our family of three will become a family of four around June 8, 2011. We have just finished the first trimester of pregnancy and Christal is thankful that it has been a much easier first trimester than with Cooper. We are thrilled to welcome a new baby into our lives once again and are excited for Cooper to be a big brother.

We pray that you have time to remember the birth of our Savior this Christmas, enjoy time with the ones that you love, and that your 2011 is full of blessings.

Love and Merry Christmas,
Sean, Christal, and Cooper
