Coy is growing so much!

He can now 'Give Kisses' and it is so darn cute. He will just lean his head towards you and close his little eyes so you can kiss his face. He likes it only sometimes, then others he's like-just hurry up already. Too sweet!

We have had to lower all the cribs and pack*n*play mattresses because he can now pull himself up and look over the edge. He may be walking soon because he likes being up where he can see everything.

He is still running around like crazy in his walker...and sometimes he is literally running!

He is still eating good and trying new things. He loves crackers, teething biscuits, french fries and green beans and of course ice cream when his daddy gives it to him. And he eats all the level 2 foods, but sometimes he seems to not like his homemade baby food. I'm not sure if its the texture or what. He likes the avocado, but the green peas took forever to get down. Not sure yet what the problem is here.

Sleeping Schedule

Well, it seems like we keep working on Coy's sleeping schedule. He will start to sleep through the night, then something happens and he is up again. So now, he wakes up each night at 2:00 clock work. At his last DR checkup, she told us he didn't need that 2 AM bottle...problem is that he still wakes up for it and cries for it. So we have been working with him to try and go back to sleep. First we tried giving him a little juice, then water, now we are down to just changing his diaper and patting him on the bottom or turning on his mobile and letting him fall back asleep. Last night it worked perfectly...but I'm nervous for those nights when he will just keep crying. The Book says at his age it is ok to let him cry it out...that is going to be really hard to do. But, with my career change coming in a couple of weeks a full nights sleep would be great to get me off to a good start!

I'm finally 1 week and 2 days post-op...but still cant hold or pick up Coy and I miss it so much!! But I've had some wonderful help over the past week and I know we can get through it...only another 1 1/2 weeks until I can be independent again!! YEAH!

Next Friday is my last day at my current job, but today is the last day all of us girls will be here together so I brought them a little something. I made each lady her own unique Key of Life. It is a large metal key that I wrote a word on that describes them and is what I think a specific valuable key to their life. Then I added jewels and ribbon to make it cutesy...they loved it! Here is a picture of one of them...
I'm really excited about teaching...but nervous at the same time. Not really sure what to expect, it is totally different from anything I've ever done. But ready for a change!

Pic from Grandparents visit..and 6 month check up.

Here is Coy with his grandparents we went to see a couple of weekends ago. We had such a good time.

Notice, Coy feel asleep holding on to her necklace. He LOVES jewelry!

Here he is Playing with his Peepaw...Check out the beautiful trees outside. It is so pretty up there. And COY will love it up there when he can walk and run and play.

Today while I was having my pre-opp mammogram, Coy was in for his 6 month check up. He now weighs 18 lbs and everything looks normal. He doesn't have to go back until he gets a flu shot and then at 9 months! WOO HOO!

Here is Coy in his FAVORITE toy now...his walker. He loves to be mobile! And he is playing with a new toy his grandma got him that he thought was so much fun!

Up on all fours!

Last night over at my Cousins for dinner, Coy and Tristan were playing on their mat and Coy decide to get up on all fours as if he were about to crawl. He knew this was exciting, but he didn't knwo what to do next. So he just kinda hung out there looking at Tristan as if to say"look, here is how you do it." He should be crawling soon.
So later when we got home we put him in his walker and he traveled through the whole house. It was a great night!

Fun weekend!

We had such a a great weekend with Coy boy!

* Friday we caught a ride with Mimi, Aida & Zoey up to Whitney to see Grandma and Peepaw. Coy is growing so much I wanted them to be able to see all his progress! We stopped and had lunch at Cracker*Barrel on the way and Coy got to sit in a highchair at a restaurant for the first time. He was so cute and looked like a big boy!

We got to grandmda & peepaw's late and Coy was tired, but he was still excited to see them. He also had new toys to play with and new clothes to wear. YEAH!

*Saturday Uncle Cliffie came out to see us. Coy got to ride around all day in his walker. He totally loves the fact that he can follow up all around on his own now! Him and Peepaw had some pool time, then later we went to eat Mexican Food...not sure if he really likes refried beans yet.

Grandma spoiled him by rocking him all evening until he feel asleep.
*Sunday, Mimi picked us up and we headed back home. But not before Coy got to try grape jelly from Peepaws toast. On the way back he showed us that he could really make a mess in his car seat and we had to pull over and strip him down and clean him up on the side of the road. That was an interesting moment.

*This morning, still tired from the eventful weekend, he fell asleep with his bottle in his mouth and of course I had to take pictures of that. Hope you enjoy.

Traveling Man

Well Coy is a traveling man now. No he's not crawling yet...but I'm sure that will come soon. But he IS walking forward & backward in his walker and he totally loves it! Friday evening he was in it and saw me come in and traveled across the living room to me. So i swept him up and gave him lots of kisses. Then Saturday he roamed the whole house and back in that thing, smiling and giggling the whole time!
