June 2010

On June 20th, Cooper turned 43 months old. On June 23rd, Skyler turned 1 month old. We are slowly learning how to be a family of 4.

My mom and dad came down to watch the kids so Jeff and I could celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. So much for our heli-skiing trip, maybe my body will be up for it next year? We settled for a nice dinner out and a movie, instead.

Skyler had her newborn session with Ms. Lesley and we got some amazing photos.

Next up was Skyler’s 2 week appointment with Dr. Spencer. She weighed in at 8 pounds, 8 ounces, was 21 inches long, with a 37cm head circumference. After dropping down to 7 pounds, 14 ounces after her birth, she was gaining weight like a champ and sleeping well at night. Dr. Spencer said she was doing very well.

We’re trying to keep Cooper occupied so he doesn’t feel left out and signed him up for SoccerTots and swim lessons at Nitro. His first SoccerTots class started off well. He was playing around with the other kids, kicking balls around. But as soon as the coaches hit the field, he turned shy and ended up crying in the corner the whole time. His second class was a little better. He still sat in the corner, but he didn’t cry, just watched.

His first swim lesson was a little better, but not much. He freaked out when I handed him over to the instructors and it took most of the class for him to calm down. Luckily, he was able to get some one-on-one time with an instructor, so that helped.

I really hope the ‘shy’ gene that he inherited from his mother is soon replaced with some confidence. I know he would have so much fun out there.
