Magnificent Mommy Moment

I had a really cool mommy moment last night. I got Cooper dressed to go to bed and Jake went out to feed Luke. Cooper always likes to pretend like he's going "nigh-night" in our bed. He lays down on the pillow and makes us put the covers over him...and then he gets really hyper and jumps around for a while. Well, last night it was late and he laid down and I just snuggled up to him and put my arm around him. I pretended like I was asleep for about a half hour. After looking at me numerous times he finally gave in and fell asleep. It was the coolest, coolest thing. For those of you who know Cooper, he is not a snuggler! One small leap for most babies, one giant leap for Cooper!
Here's a few candids: Cooper being cheesy and Luke showing off his new-found talent of sitting up!!

Cute. We would've called but let's face it...time was short and we were way up in northern GA. I saw what you did for the 4th. You were busy too! We'll get together soon.

Luke looks so cute! I can't imagine having a baby that didn't like to snuggle! Sad! Oliver loves, loves, loves to snuggle.

k, so I think I'd just die if my kids weren't snugglers! Good for you making headway! You guys are so cute - and I can't believe Luke is sitting up already! It feels like he's still too young! :)

In response to your comment on my post. Brett is one of the most frugal people I know. That's why I was SHOCKED when he came back to the store with an actual purchase. Before he went into Best Buy he said he'd see what he could find, and then we'd find it cheaper on the internet (go figure). I guess we all have our weaknesses and splurge a little :) he did buy the floor model so it was MUCH cheaper
