Cooper has surfer dude hair.   It is so cool.   I think it’s my favorite feature about him so far.   When he first emerged from the womb, it was curly and sticky and looked like it had frosted tips.   Now it’s downy and  some lays softly against his head and the rest sticks up  and still has wild sun-bleached highlights.   Maybe I spent too much time in the salon when he was in vitro??

First, pictures…





It has been such a joy getting to know him over these past eight days.   He is a super-sleeper… since we’ve been home, he’s slept nearly every night just waking ONCE!   I am actually not a zombie.   (Ok, at least I’m no longer a zombie since weaning myself from the percocet…)   In the mornings, he is one mellow kid.   He wakes up with a stretch, nurses, dozes, nurses, dozes and generally just hangs out.   In the evenings, though, he does a complete turn-around and wants to nurse non-stop from about 4PM until we go to bed.   No kidding.   He’ll drink for a half hour, fall asleep for a few minutes and then wake up howling and doing the woodpecker, latching on to any bare skin he can find until I nurse him again.    But then he sleeps nearly all night, so who’s to complain?   It’s not like I’m going anywhere, right?

He’s a snuggler, too.   But he’s also the kind of baby you can put down for a while and he’s just content to look around and listen to what’s going on.   I know it’s still the honeymoon, but I’m hooked on this little guy.

    Congrats on the birth of your son! It sounds like life is happy in your household, which is wonderful. Hope the “honeymoon” phase lasts until he is a teenager! My son also cluster fed at night, still does and usually still sleeps great. It sure helps with the pregnancy weight. Hope things keep going well for you.

    These are adorable pictures. I saw where he looks like you in the first picture, then I saw where he looks like Casey in the next pictures!! Looks like both! At least to me. I’ve heard of the cluster feeding. Sounds like it works wonderfully so ya’ll get some sleep. I tried to nurse with both of mine, but there were some issues and I ended up feeding formula. It’s great that you can. Better for the baby and the wallet!

    What adorable pictures of your little man. The hair is amazing!

    I am waiting impatiently for my daughter to deliver her little girl if not before….on Monday.

    I have been surfing around looking for ideas on good baby pictures. Yours are the best.

    Beautiful, beautiful family! Thank you for posting these. He’s a doll! And he looks a lot like his brother! Hope you are recovering well. Sounds like Cooper’s letting you sleep! Praise God! I miss the little floppy rag-doll stage!
