Christmas #2 & #3

We hosted the Dunaway side on Christmas eve.
 
Then Christmas morning, we woke up to see what Santa brought us and opened all of our presents under the tree.
Connor had asked Santa for 3 things...
A DinoTrux
A Train Table
A Hulk Smash Car
Connor told me that he got everything he had ever wanted. He also told me that he heard Santa's boots going down the hallway on Christmas Eve and that Santa came into his room and looked in his toy box and saw what he didn't have and then gave him what he didn't have. Somehow, Santa knew just what he wanted.
Chloe ask for 2 things (because she insisted the train table was for all of this, which it was)...
A Ballerina doll
A Palace Pet with Bright Eyes
Chloe was all about all things Christmas. She loved opening presents and helping Cooper open his and seeing what Connor opened.
 
Cooper got the hang of it all pretty fast and would go to town opening all of his own presents before we even knew he had started. He was very animated about everything he opened and loved every minute of it. Not only did he get a bunch of new toys, he also plays with everything the twins got so for him, it's a win, win, win!

Beauty and the Beast

Chloe and I and a couple of our friends went to watch a production of Beauty and the Beast at the Tulsa PAC Wednesday night.
We got all dressed up and went out to eat at Olive Garden before the show.
We all loved it and it was great to get out for a girl's night!

School Christmas Party

David and I went to the kids Christmas parties at school last Wednesday. We split our time between the twins' class and Cooper's class and eventually just brought Coop into the twins class.
They usually have 12 in their class but about half were already out for Christmas break and a few didn't want to get their picture taken.
The twins with their BFF Betsey.

Chrismtas #1 2015

We had our first Christmas at GiGi's and Papaws house on Saturday. I attempted to get a picture of all three together since they looked so cute! But you know how that goes...
The twins were so excited to open presents. They understand it this year and could hardly wait.
Connor was the most excited. I kept hearing him say "I've always wanted this!", and "I've wanted this my whole life." and "This is what I've been wanting!" He opened it all up and we didn't see him for 2 days straight.
 
Chloe loved it too and kept telling GiGi "Thank you".
Cooper loves his rocking horse and says "Yee Haw" when he's riding it.
 
They have all been playing non-stop with their new toys and their reactions were priceless when I reminded them that we still have 2 more Christmas's to go!

Cooper is 18 months old!

Cooper turned 18 months old last week!
I can't believe he is already 1 1/2!
He is a Daddy's boy. Which is so different than how the twins were. They used to never go to Daddy and wanted me to do everything. Cooper wants his daddy all the time.
 
He loves his bubba and sissy and wants to be right in the middle of everything they're doing. He still needs to work on his sharing a little bit though because he says everything is "Mine!"
 
His favorite word is "No".
 
He is obsessed with Santa Claus.
 
His favorite food is blueberries and has meltdowns when we run out.
 
He repeats almost everything we say and is trying to have conversations with us. I usually have no idea what he is trying to say but most of the time the twins can translate to me. We have the stairs blocked off but he has started going up to the twins and saying "stairs?" with his hands out like he is asking them if they want to go upstairs and play. And they will just open the gate and let him go upstairs before I even know about it. We're working on this.
 
He is a little Dennis the Menace. He is into EVERYTHING and is always climbing and doing things he shouldn't be doing.
 
He plays a game where if we are in the bathroom getting ready, he comes in and closes the door and as he's leaving he says "Bye bye. Love you." and then shuts the door.
 
He wants to "use the potty" every time we change his diaper.
 
When he is finished with a meal, he picks up his plate and starts yelling "Done!" and if you don't get to him fast enough, it's dumped all over the floor.
 
He is the best sleeper out of the 3 by far. He will sleep a solid 12-13 hours a night, no matter what time you put him to bed. And he still takes a 2-3 hour nap every day.
 
He is a good eater and is hungry a lot. When he gets hungry, he comes into the kitchen, sometimes gets a stool to get a bib out of the drawer and takes it to his high chair and then starts trying to climb in the high chair while he's saying "eat, eat".
 
I spike his hair up because he has a ton of cowlicks.  The hair naturally stands straight up and I have to add gel to make it look decent.  I'm not used to dealing with this straight, blonde hair!
He is 32 pounds and is wearing 2T clothes (thank goodness for all of Connor's old clothes and shoes!)

We have one little issue with one of his feet turning in and are going to an Orthopedic doctor today to get it checked out. I don't think it's anything serious and I don't really know what they would even do about it. Our pediatrician thinks he will grow out of it and it will straighten up as he grows, but since it's just the one foot and not both, he wants to get him checked out.

He is sweet and funny and so smart. We love our Coopy Coop to pieces.
