Cooper Birthday Week end

November 6, 2011

We were able to meet again this year and celebrate George, Kelley, Kim, and Jennifer’s birthdays at the first of August.

Landry gearing up for fun down at the Gill’s dock

Hal and Cindy built a really nice dock that has a 2nd floor you can jump off of.  They were so nice to let us take over their dock while we were down.  Kelley was about to jump and Landry just liked to go up there and watch the big kids jump down.

While the big kids were swimming Sutton enjoyed a nice nap

Landry didn’t give anybody much of a chance to open their own gift.  She was digging right into Kim’s before she even started.

Jared once again is after Kelley

Sweet picture of them two

Back to swimming

No more pictures mom!!!!

She Likes to Hear Her Own Voice

November 4, 2011

There is no doubt we have girls that love to hear themselves talk or make noise.  Landry will talk to herself while looking in the mirror, while in the bath tub, while reading books, really any where.  I remember waking up to her when she was a baby just making baby noises and talking to herself in the middle of the night.  We have found that Sutton is no different.  The girl loves to hear her voice.  She does this happy scream/growl that I got on video one day.  And who said God doesn’t have humor….giving Jared three girls who love to talk!

 

Surviving the Hot Summer

November 2, 2011

As you can tell we spent most of our summer in the backyard watching Landry play  in the baby pool.  Sutton and I took a few dips in the pool too to cool off.

This was before I got her hat on and the sun was apparently in her eyes

After we took her out of the water she just talked and laughed.  It was so funny!  Got some good pics.

I had to join in the fun

Early Videos of Sutton

October 26, 2011

When I was going through videos I found these two of Sutton.  I don’t think I posted them yet so I wanted to get them on the blog so we would have them.  She is wearing newborn outfits so I would say she was 6 weeks-8 weeks old.  H ow quickly they change.  Here you can see the early signs of her talking and the sounds have just increased. 

 

 

And The Matching Outfits Begin

October 23, 2011

I didn’t even realize they had almost matching outfits until I had them dressed ready to head to church.  It is getting easier now that Sutton can sit up better, but when these pictures were taken it wasn’t real easy to get them both looking at the camera without Sutton falling over

Got one of them to look at the camera

And there she goes…..

No smiles from Sutton but at least they were both looking at the camera….for the most part

Lake and Fireworks on the 4th of July

October 19, 2011

We spent a day out at the lake with family and then watched the fireworks at the lake in San Angelo.  Goodfellow Base puts on a great, free show!

 A nice picture of Kim jumping off of the top of the dock

Landry hanging on the dock with Gigi.  She would almost get in the lake and then chicken out.  She did let Jared hold her on the ladder and dip her in a little bit.  So slowly we are making progress.

Landry thought it was “so cool” that she could come watch the fireworks in her pj’s. 

Sutton is thinking, “Dad what in the world are we doing parked in this field?”

Baby girl crashed out before the show even started

Sutton Hanging Out

October 16, 2011

These pics were taken when Sutton was about 3  months old

Keeping the smiles coming

The last two Dr. visits she has had thrush so they painted her mouth purple.  She was our little purple people eater.  Her outfit was purple so her purple mouth and lips was a nice touch

Pictures of the girls together

Just the little one

I thought this one was cute of them looking at each other

Pool Time at the Rochin’s

September 25, 2011

Mike and Carla were so nice to let us take over their pool one evening.  It was so nice after a hot day.  Sutton got to go for her first swim in a big pool.  She was mellow as ever…just enjoying it!

Heading across the street

She fit perfectly inside the floatie

Lounging in the shallow area

All cozy now

5 weeks after having a baby….of course I strategically placed the beachball there.  🙂

This picture is priceless

Random pics this summer

September 21, 2011

It seems very rare that Jared and I are in the pictures I have.  Mom was in town so she took this picture when I came home for lunch one day.

Wow!  An actual real smile

She loves to do any kind of painting

Jared forgot about the water in the pool this day so Landry had a VERY full pool!

Bubbles Bubbles Everywhere 

Oh how we love that gummy smile!
