4 Months!

Cooper is 4 months! We took him to the doctor today for his checkup and he looks great! He is 14 lbs. 7 oz. (50th percentile) and is 26 inches long (75th percentile). He got four shots and barely cried at all. Cooper is the sweetest baby around and has the best smile. We have had some major breakthroughs in the last week- sleeping and eating. Cooper was refusing to sleep good at night- waking up every 2 hours for several days in a row. He didn't want to eat- he was just depending on me to get him back to sleep. I was completely exhausted and frustrated. So we had a little sleep training a.k.a. "crying it out" this past week and he is doing much better! Last night he went to sleep at 8 and slept until 5:45 this morning! Praise the Lord! I'm feeling much better and refreshed which is good for everyone in the house! This past week he has also started to take a bottle. Probably for the past month he had been refusing the bottle. He has even taken formula from a bottle which had been a major battle!

We love Cooper so much. God blessed us unexpectedly about this time last year and he brings so much joy to our lives. I can't imagine not having Cooper around and I'm thankful for the little surprises in life!
