Big Boy!

I am proud to say that Colt is doing AWESOME with his sippy cup!!!! It took a few days but by Thanksgiving morning he was a pro with no help! He looks so old and I cannot believe that he will be one in just a few days! We are celebrating with family next Saturday and I am excited! We had a great thanksgiving with both of our families. Our boys got to spend time with 2 great grandmas and they will get to see the other great grandparents at Christmas! All 4 Great Grandparents in a month, kinda cool! We are going to North Carolina for Christmas and we are very excited to see Grandma and Grandpa Beers!

Looong Hard Day

Since today is a cold and rainy day I decided that it would be a good day to have a bad day, does that make since? You don't want to have a bad day when its sunny and pretty outside! Colton is almost a year old and that means that I need to pick a day to take his bottle away and just give him sippy cups from now on. The only problem is...HE HATES SIPPY CUPS!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I knew that this would be very difficult for both of us. I was told by some friends to just pick a day and don't look back! So when I woke up I thought, this is the day. He ate his breakfast fine but wanted to keep eating and eating and eating because he had not yet had his bottle :( He had his sippy cup on his tray the whole time he was eating cheerios but chose to ignore it. Then Cooper yells, Momma he's doing it! So I turn and look and he is just holding it, then tries to drink it and throws it down and starts crying. He does not want that, he wants his bottle. So I go over and try to help him and he takes a few gulps then realizes he should be crying because its not his bottle and so he starts to cry again. But I think that if he is that thirsty he will do it and we will be ok! I am also switching him to whole milk, he has been on soy milk since he was a baby so we will see if his tummy can handle it. Two big changes today and all I know is we will both sleep very good tonight because it will be a long day! I will let you know how it goes! :)

Family Pictures

We have been wanting some family pictures for our home for a while now and since Colt is much older now and with the pretty fall colors we went to have them taken. Philip, Jon's brother, and his wife Savannah have their own photography business, AvaGrace Photography. They do an AMAZING job and we are were thrilled to see a glimse of what they captured for us. You can check out a few of the pics.
Can't wait to see the rest!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!

Tonight I went upstairs to get Cooper's pjs and the window was open in the office and I heard this weird sound. I looked around to see if anything was on that could be making this sound. Then I figured it out! IT WAS THE COWS ACROSS THE ROAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I called down to Coop to come fast! He stood by me and I said, listen, all of the sudden "MOOOOOOO" His eyes lit up bigger than I have ever seen them! He started to just giggle and was mooing back at them. There were probably 3 talking to each other but he thought they were talking to him! It was great fun as we sat and talked with the cows tonight. Another reason I love living where we do!!!!!!
