Cooper did pretty well on the road and slept off and on the whole way. He would get fussy from time to time so I would hand him snacks which always helps :)
We made it to Austin and Cooper LOVED being with his cousin Alayah. It was the first time for us to meet her and it was so cute watching them interact. Cooper is in a major hugging stage and wants to hug every kid in sight. He really loves being around other kids. He also loves to give open mouth kisses, which I'm not sure if the other kids appreciate it as much as I do :)
Annnnnd another one of them hugging....
We did what pretty much most people do on Thanksgiving, eat and football! Here is a good picture of Justin and his brother with their kids.
I'm really not sure how I managed to not get in any Thanksgiving pictures, but that's how it goes! We also took the kids to the park one day and Cooper enjoyed the swing, playing on the slide and crawling around everywhere to explore.
Of course he also loved tackling them and hugging them!
Cooper is still having trouble sleeping anywhere else but his own crib/room. He had to cry for awhile the first night but after that he did well going to sleep. The problem is, he is such a light sleeper that he wakes up when we go into the room for us to go to sleep. After he wakes up, he has trouble going back to sleep especially since we are in the room with him. We tried co sleeping for the first time ever and he did pretty well one night and the other night was terrible. We didn't get much sleep and are still trying to catch up. I don't know how you co sleepers do it but we were all happy to be back in our own roooms/bed again!

I am very thankful for my husband who is such a gift from the Lord and my sweet little boy that makes me smile everyday.
