Favorite Things

So I am copying my sister n law on this one! I so enjoyed reading her favorite things I thought
I would share some of mine.

1.Coffeemate I wake up and make coffee first thing these days and my flavored coffee mate is the main reason I like it! Yummy. By the way you can get a $2.00 off coupon on the coffeemate website :).

2. Burts Bees I absolutely love my chapstick I carry it with me everywhere.

3. Candles I spend most of my days at home so I really enjoy having my candles going during the day to help freshen up my house.

4. Target I could spend all afternoon walking around the Target store. And you can get everything you need even Coffee :).

5. Yoga pants- Better known as Mommy pants. Comfy, and you can throw them on quickly and go and be comfortable. I probably should work on my wardrobe, poor Clay. :)

Petting Zoo

So I am really catching up on posting today. I have had lots to say but no pictures on my
computer. We have been doing a lot lately because the weather has been so nice. It makes me want to get out of the house. So we packed up and went to Oak Mountain a couple of weeks ago and had a picnic and went to the petting zoo. I think there is no way we won't have animal loving boys with all of the animal activities we do. What do you expect.. I love me some fur babies and am hopeful my boys will too. Obviously Cooper already does.
So I am attaching a few pictures from our day.

Baby Shower

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to help give my sweet friend, Mikeeta, a baby shower last week. Erica, Mikeeta and I met at the Pelham Racquet Club and have played tennis together the past 3 or so years off and on. The reason I say off and on is that none of us had children when we met so we played almost every day of the week and enjoyed lunches out. Now... I have two boys, Erica has two boys and Mikeeta is about to have a baby as well. Time flies when you are having fun!
We had a really fun time at my house with the help of my two baby assistants showering Mikeeta with love, food and gifts.

Pumpkin Patch

We made a visit to the Pumpkin Patch last Saturday. It was a really nice day but COLD, so we had to bundle everyone up. Cooper was super excited about seeing the pumpkins. When we arrived at the pumpkin patch we took the first 15 minutes bundling everyone and getting everyone set up in the stroller. But, there was a helicopter ride not far away, which was the perfect thing to occupy Cooper's attention. I really think he would have ridden on it.
This was the perfect day for Clay to be able to do some things with Cooper that he doesn't always have the chance to do. There was a jumping area and Clay and Cooper did that together, which Cooper loved! Also a petting zoo and Clay and Cooper did that together and fed the baby llama and cow. They did that while I fed Cohen. :)
Next up was the Hay ride to the pumpkin patch. I was so excited that Cooper was excited about it this year. He jumped right on and enjoyed the sites along the way. This was my first time to see the pumpkin patch because last year Cooper didn't want to do the hay ride. He had such a fun time picking out our pumpkins and rolling them around!
We decided to hit our favorite Mexican restaurant, Habaneros, after. I was so proud of my little guy for being such a champ the entire time. We had such a fun family outing, even with the frigid weather!

My Baby Boy is Growing Up

Cooper has been taking his time with talking and that is ok with me. I just love
every moment I have with my sweet boy and I am trying to cherish the "baby" moments. But,
lately he is really growing in the vocabulary department. Here are a few of the sweet words he is saying.

Elmo: Mo Mo
Mobie: Mo
Slide: slide
Ball: Balls
Bubble: Bubbles (likes to add an S on to his words)
Puzzle: suzzle
Sun: Su
Moon: moon
ok: ok is added to the end of sentences
Sorry: Soe
Night night: Ni Ni
Pumpkin: umpki
Duck says: Fack Fack (yes a little embarrassing)
Sheep says: Neigh (can't seem to get this one right, but knows that a horse says neigh too)
I know I am missing some cute ones, but i just thought I would share.

Get Together

I have been slacking on the blogging lately. I have been reading others just not taking the time
to write my own. So sad. We have been pretty busy, but mainly just doing little things.
For those of you that know me well.. know that I am not always a Social Butterfly these days. But,
after having Cooper and especially after Cohen I have really stepped out of the box a little. Clay
and I are volunteering in the nursery at church once a month, I joined a Bunco group and also MOPS (which I start in a few weeks). Lots of fun activities and get a little girl time out of it.

We have lots of fun neighbors that we have been really wanting to get to know better. So Clay and I decided to have a get together at the house and have some of them over. We invited 5 families over and 4 of them could make it. We grilled out, played ping pong and roasted marshmallows over the fire! There were lots of kids and I was afraid they wouldn't have much fun but they seemed to have a blast running around outside and playing by the fire! We enjoyed ourselves so much I just wish we had done it sooner! Wish we had taken pictures, just completely forgot! :(
