Cute Little Stubborn Boy

Lately Cooper wants to be in control of EVERYTHING! Whenever you ask him to do something his response is "umm, maybe later" or "let's do ______ first." Of course he never wants to take a nap, but he still really needs one everyday. Today when I tucked him in for his nap he was absolutely furious, when I went in to check on him after a little while I found him sound asleep on the floor. I think this was his way of being in control, sure I could make him stay in his room but there was no way I could make him stay in his bed. He's been doing this a lot lately. In fact, last week I let him take his nap in our room a few times, one time I went in to check on him and he was nowhere to be seen. I panicked yelling his name frantically, until finally he started crying it took me a minute to realize where the crying was coming from, he had fallen asleep under our bed! I couldn't believe it, I just wish that I had gotten a picture of Cooper asleep under our bed before my yelling woke him up, he woke up pretty confused and kind of freaked out I had to help pull him out.

A Little Mommy Time

All last week was around 100 degrees, so on Friday I brought the boys over to their cousin Trey's house so that Cooper could swim in his pool. I didn't think that I would get to swim but I brought my swimsuit just in case, I'm glad I did because Dane slept the whole time we were there, allowing me to swim with Cooper for a couple of hours. We had a blast and Cooper sure loved having my undivided attention. Thanks Janel, Trey & Talya for having us over!

By that night Cooper had a fever of 102 degrees, but he was still really happy. He followed me around all day asking for hugs, and to sit on my lap. Usually Mason tucks him into bed every night because Cooper misses him during the day and insists that Daddy tuck him in. So that night Mason went in to Cooper's room to tuck him in and came right back out saying that he was requesting me. I was really surprised because usually Cooper gets upset when I try to tuck him in. I went in, laid on the bed next to him, sang him a few songs and then told him I loved him and I was about to give him a kiss and get up, when Cooper looked at me with a huge smile on his face and said "You're the best mom." I melted right then and there. I love you so much Cooper, I'm so glad that I get to be your mommy!
