Dear Cooper,

On January 20, 2010, you turned 38 months old.

Another month full of travel! We traveled back to Arlington (for the third time) for Christmas. We got to meet up with Mommy’s friends Martha and Amanda and you got to play with William and Hayden. I think we get the same picture every year with you and William sitting together in a chair.

Christmas Eve turned out to be quite an adventure. First, it started snowing. We then drove through the snow to G-Mama and G-Papa’s house. You had a blast opening presents and you had so much fun playing with your new toys. We drove back to Mama and Papa Choo-Choo’s house through the snow. Uncle Todd wasn’t feeling good and ended up in the hospital with Appendicitis.

Christmas morning was pretty quiet; Papa Choo-Choo was at the hospital with Uncle Todd. The streets were still pretty bad due to the snow and ice the night before, so the usual Christmas morning festivities didn’t happen. You still made out pretty good, though. Santa brought you lots of good stuff and you got to eat your first cookie off of Mama Choo-Choo’s Christmas tree.

We came back home, but we didn’t exactly have time to relax. On Monday, you got to come to the doctor with Mommy to find out if you were going to have a baby brother or a baby sister. You just knew it was going to be a boy, but unfortunately, you didn’t get your way. You are going to have a little sister! As soon as the sonogram tech said ‘it’s a girl,’ you were ready to leave, you were no longer interested. On Tuesday, we had a final walk-through on our new house. On Wednesday, we closed on our new house, woohoo! Uncle Robert, Aunt Becky and Jaxon came to visit and on Thursday, we all drove down to Uncle Paul’s house in Boerne for a New Year’s Eve party.

When we got back home, we were finally able to move in to our brand new house! You have a nice new room, a playroom for all of your toys and a huge back yard to play in when it gets warmer out. I can’t wait to make some new memories in this house!
