Cooper 3 Weeks!

Our Cooper is growing up...Napping in the sunny living room in his new outfit. When we were discharged from the hospital we realized we had NOTHING for him to wear once we got home. On our way out, we ran into Utica Square to Baby Gap and picked him up a few outfits, this is one of my fav's. It says, "New to the herd." I thought it was cute.

He got his first "real" bath in the tub... and slept the whole time.

Daddy got to feed him his first bottle. I wasn't saving my milk b/c I was too lazy to get the bottles out and clean them. I finally decided I am being wasteful, so I am now saving milk and Matt gets to feed him before we go to bed. Cooper gulped it down like a champ. I was worried he wouldn't take to the bottle, but thank goodness he does! Matt didn't say anything, but I think he really enjoyed getting to feed his son for the first time. With Chloe I waited 3 months to give her a bottle ( I was told one couldn't pump until after 3 months. That was false info.) and I felt bad that Matt couldn't partake in the action. Hopefully, my milk supply stays where it is!! If it doesn't we may have to take out a loan to buy formula! haha j/k On a side note, how much money do you spend at the grocery store now? We buy the same things we bought before the cost of everything went up and we now leave spending $100 easily! It's crazy and sad and frustrating. Don't get me started on gas...


  1. he is getting bigger already!! I love the outfit! Cute! Yeah, save up that milk. Some of us don't have the luxury of wasting even a drop! that's precious commodity in my world, my friend. Our grocery bill is up too, and not cuz of diapers...

  2. He is SO beautiful Megan!! I'm amazed that he stayed asleep while you gave him a bath. Maybe you do have a "chill" baby. your blog! You are a fun read! ;)

  3. P.S. If your milk supply gets low you can try some herbal supplements like...
    Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Mother's Milk Tea(an actual tea drink.) They REALLY work...I've had to use them several times.

  4. He is so cute! I want to hold him.

  5. guess what! Camden actually has a tooth breaking through. I can even see it. If he continues this way by getting a tooth every four months, he may have all of his teeth by the time he goes to Kindergarten. wahoo! and yes, my grocery bill has been a little higher, so I'm having to be even more of a grocery nazi with my list now. Chicken was $1 per pound this week... so it looks like we are eating chicken for a few weeks. I'm definitely going to need to get creative with recipes!!!

  6. I can't believe he stayed asleep! To cute! Our bill has also gotten bigger, but I think that has to do with Briley's growing appetite!
