July 2010

In July, Cooper turned 44 months old and Skyler turned 2 months old.


Cooper finally found his confidence and started participating in SoccerTots. It only took a little bribery from Daddy, who promised to take him to see Toy Story 3. Since then he’s been having a blast!

Skyler started to get really fussy in the evenings and I was beginning to think she was just going to be colicky. She was spitting up a lot and was never really ‘happy.’ When I would go shopping (groceries or whatever, didn’t matter) she would start crying 10 minutes in. I would end up carrying her, wrangling the stroller or cart and trying to keep Cooper from getting into things. It was a major pain. I called her pediatrician’s nurse and told her what was going on and they told me to bring her in. Turns out she has reflux and was put on Zantac, which seems to be helping.

We travelled to Houston for a visit with Mama and Papa Mery, Uncle Robert, Aunt Becky and Jaxon.  Look who’s walking!

Skyler had her 2 month appointment with Dr. Ziari (Dr. Spencer books up fast). She weighed in at 10 pounds, 13 ounces (50%), was 22.5 inches long (50%) and had a head circumference of 39 cm (10%). I’m not quite sure how I gave birth to a baby with such a small head, but maybe that was God’s way of allowing me a VBAC. Thank you, God! She also started sleeping through the night. I’m not just talking 6-8 hours straight; I’m talking 12-13 hours. She is an awesome sleeper! And did I mention that she’s smiling? Love that precious girl!

Cooper finally learned how to hold his breath under water at swim lessons and progressed to station 2. It only took 5 lessons, but hopefully the next stations will come much easier to him. He is such a silly kid with a ginormous imagination and he is an awesome big brother!
