Twenty Nine Months

Dear Cooper,

Last week you turned 29 months old.

Have I mentioned that we’ve been doing a lot of travelling lately? We started off this month in Vail and soon returned home. You did such a great job in the car on the way there and on the way home. When you got tired, I would suggest to you that it was time to take a nap and usually within 20 minutes, you were asleep. It took a little while for us all to recover from the Vail trip, it was exhausting.

Before long, we were back to our normal routine. This is the time of year that we love to keep the windows open. You love playing outside and were able to break out the bubble mower.

Before our trip to Vail, Mommy borrowed some videos from a friend to watch in the car. You are now obsessed with the movie Cars. You also like to watch a Thomas and Friends video, but Cars is by far your favorite. I’m sure I’m going to have to purchase these videos as soon as I return them. One nice thing about this is that I can turn on ‘Mater’ or the ‘trains’ and go take a shower or work in the office and you will totally entertain yourself for hours with your toy cars and trains while watching the videos. I’ll just have to make sure you don’t turn into a couch potato.

It’s Easter time and the bluebonnets are out. They’re not as good as they can be, but I still wanted to try to get a picture of you in the bluebonnets. We had two mini photo shoots and I got lots of cute photos of you in a small field of bluebonnets and at the front entrance to our neighborhood. (Mommy needs a faster lens!)

Along with bluebonnets, Easter time brings Easter Egg Hunts! We had a really fun time at our MOPS Easter Egg Hunt and Picnic out at Berry Creek Park. You’ve participated in several small egg hunts at school, MOPS and Wednesday night Bible study, but I didn’t get to see how you did. When I finally get to see you hunt for eggs, you stood there and watched all the other kids find the eggs. I told you to go grab them before they were gone, but you just pointed at all the other kids finding eggs. I finally had to go grab some eggs for you so you wouldn’t be left out.

The end of travelling is in sight, but not until next month. We went to Houston for Aunt Becky’s baby shower and Easter. You helped win me a door prize at Aunt Becky’s shower. The game was to cut a piece of string the size of Aunt Becky’s belly. I decided to measure you from head to toe and we won! That’s how big around Aunt Becky’s belly is (give or take an inch). You had a fun time playing with Mama and Papa Mery. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to go to church for Easter because you ran a fever in the middle of the night. How do I know this? You fell out of the bed at about 3:45 in the morning and when I went in to help you, you were burning up. The Easter bunny (AKA Papa Mery) didn’t forget about you and we came home with a rather large basket full of candy, a full sized basketball, football and soccer ball.

The next weekend, you rode with Mommy to visit Aunt Judy and Uncle Paul while they visited G-Mama in Dallas. This is the first time meeting them as they live in St. Louis, MO. We also visited with G-Mama while she was in the hospital. You are such a good kid. You behaved very well in the hospital, especially after driving all the way from Round Rock.

I’m so happy that you handle riding in the car so well seeing as how we can’t seem to stay out of it these days. Thank you for being such a happy, laid back kid.

I love you,
