Goodbye 2011!

Wow, where did 2011 go? Time just flies now! I thought it would be fun to share some blopper pics from this year :) I have a silly boy!

January~ surely, you've heard the story of the rednosed Cooper?


Cooper with Benny, my hubby's childhood toy...Benny is a little scary and I think Coop is trying to figure out exactly what Benny is supposed to be, lol...

Cooper never took a paci (thank God) but we did have a teething one that I bought out of desperation that he did like to chew on..

Cooper + any cabinet= mess


Cooper playing in his tent...he was just learning how to go through the tunnel...


He eats like a teenage boy already, lol


I don't know what he's doing here...I guess I caught him daydreaming!


After a bath in his favorite Ik.ea towel


I love these skeleton pj's, they even glow in the dark!


Helping clean out the pumpkin


Play hard, sleep hard!


Cooper dipped 40 peas into ranch dressing...hey, he's eating his veggies!

I'm not such a crappy mom after all and found Christmas day pics on our camera! Jackpot!

Everyone else see the brand new Little Tikes workbench? Yeah, Cooper was way more interested in the coffee for my new Keurig (score for mommy!)...

"You mean this candy cane of reese's cups is all mine?"

"This is the best morning ever!"

Someone is a little sleepy...

But, he loves his new Little People's pirate ship! We watch Jake and the Neverland Pirates everyday so he's really loving his very own Bucky :)

Did I really only post ONE time for the entire month of December??? I got an iPhone (which is a huge leap for me because I've been using the same crappy Ver.izon phone for a few years!) and have been snapping photos with it instead of the regular camera. I emailed myself all the pics off my phone so I'm going to make a smoragasboard post of our lives for the last couple of weeks. I guess I could write posts from my phone but I type better and quicker on my laptop...

Daddy teaching Cooper to be a rockstar. For the record, this Elmo guitar is the most obnoxious toy on the planet which makes it Coop's favorite...

"Hey, you have a little something on your face." Yeah, this kid loves ketchup...

Cooper loves to sit on top of the car. This is my hubby's fault. Coop likes sitting up high and waving to everyone! My hubby is right there so no worries. Put down the phone!

Yes, I am one of those obnoxious parents that lets their kid play on the coin cars without actually inserting coins. Hey, he's be fair, I did let him ride in the car while it was moving once. I only had 3 quarters and the freaking change machine was broken. So there.

He got this Mickey Mouse Clubhouse ball pit for Christmas. He loves anything Mickey so this thing was a hit. A hit to my lungs from blowing it up but he loves it so it was worth it.

He loves all things Mickey Mouse and anything pertaining to making a mess...again, he's 2 so this goes with the territory. His favorite stomping grounds these days is the pantry. I need to childproof this door handle, lol...

Where's your pants, yo? This was a no nap day...

Cooper's Christmas pic for this year. This photo shoot was a NIGHTMARE. I had a hard time using my $9.99 coupon. Seriously. This one is cute though and it has Cooper AND Lilybear :)

We have found a new indoor play place and Cooper LOVES it. My mommy bootcamp was cancelled last Wednesday and I still got a great workout from chasing him everywhere!

We had some great weather (like high 60's, low 70's) about 2 weeks ago and we lived at the park :)

We've had a wonderful 2011 with many trials but with many, many blessings! Cooper is such a fun little guy and has brought so many smiles and laughs into our lives! I'm looking forward to 2012 and thank you so much for reading this year!


Jen, Cooper and Lily's mommy :)

Cooper wanted to let you know that his MRI turned out to be normal! The MRI was of his brain so he has a nice and normal brain which is awesome news! Our journey for answers continues to march on!

Now, the actual MRI experience was horrible! They blew 2 of his veins while trying to get an IV in and they blamed it on his anxiety! I talked to one of my nurse friends (that doesn't work at this hospital) and she said that was just a line of bull. They ended up giving him this drug to relax him (and, evidentally, it also causes amnesia so hopefully, he doesn't remember the horrible IV experience!) and boy, was he a hoot on that relaxing drug! I've never seen him more chilled out! He was all smiley and funny!
