The one with the Mohawk...

Yes, that's right, we cut our sweet baby boys hair into a MOHAWK. And while he is still as cute as can be, he looks like a 5 year old!!!! No joke. So it all started late last week when I decided to trim Coopers hair like always. I think he looks sweet with a bowl cut, however my significant other convinced me other wise ( so yea, technically you can blame Josh!!!) Anyway Josh must have had this spunky flare in him and came home from work and busted out the razor! Cooper wasn't the biggest fan of all the buzzing but as you can see, we made it. Josh did the buzzing since I had never done it before and it turned out really cute. Cooper looks like such a stud and is already picking up the girls in the neighborhood. Meet his girlfriend Haley.... They kiss and hug, share drinks and feed each other. A real romance! We are going to have to keep an eye on these 2 when hey become teenagers. It really is so sweet and innocent watching them together. Haley is about a month older than Cooper.

Cooper got a new toy delivered to the house this week, a slide that he loves, not to mention all the other kids around too. Our neighbors to the right have a big play ground set that we see Cooper eyeing all the time. The slide, not the e swings so his Granna and Grandpa had a Cooper size slide sent. Speaking of Cooper size, he had his 18 month check up this past Monday. His weight has pretty much maintained right at 25 lbs, his height is average and as we know, he is healthy. He is right on track for development. The doctor said Mommy and Daddy get an A+, keep doing what we are doing and he is going to turn out great. We sure hope, right?? He spend loads of time with him outdoors and let him get plenty of exercise. And while he doesn't eat veggies that's the least of my worries. He eats most everything else that kids eat. I just pick my battles and fighting over food is not one of them.

I am trying to teach Cooper how to jump here...

So as a public service announcement, please write this down.... I mowed the lawn yesterday, for no money or incentive! When I was a teenager my dad used to pay me $20 ( maybe $20 for the front and $20 for the back, I can't remember- but I know I was paid) anyway I was laying out in the back yard and the grass was kind of high and I got the itch (literally) to mow the lawn. I need some practice, it doesn't have the straight pretty lines like when Josh does it, but hey, it's mowed!!! We are looking forward to next weekend, Spencer comes in town for his 21st birthday!! The boys are getting a few hotel rooms and staying in buckhead a few nights. And my parents will be coming in town Friday thru Tuesday. We will have a little more low key weekend than the boys, but just glad it's a 3 day weekend. Hope everyone has a great Sunday!!!

 I couldn't pick just one of these to post. Cooper loves the slide!

The one on Mothers Day....

Happy Mothers Day to all the mommas out there!! My mothers day was fantastic.... first of all, Cooper slept until 9:45, only because Josh went and woke him up, he totally would have slept later. 2nd, Josh brought me mimosas and breakfast in bed, not just breakfast- but my favorite, 2 eggs over easy, toast and bacon. It was delicious, did I mention I was watching Friends all morning, yes, Friends!! So you know I was in heaven!!!! Anyway, it was raining all day, so we stayed in doors and watched a few movies. Cooper made me 3 beautiful cards. Josh had him bring them to me all throughout the day, 1 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon and 1 right before dinner, where we went to Bonefish Grill. It's our favorite place and ironically where we had our first date almost 4 years ago... who would have thought then, that we would be having our Mothers Day Dinner there... it was a wonderful day, more than I could ask for. I am a blessed mommy, to have such a smart and handsome baby boy and blessed to have such a loving husband. Cheers to all the mommas out there, specifically my mother, who taught me everything I know who has so much love in her heart, thank you MOM!!!

Can I please have some BangBang Shrimp??????

This is Cooper first time on the rocking horse, it was mine when I was a youngin. He loves it!!!

Have a great week!!!!!

The one on Cinco de Mayo...

Happy Independence day to Mexico! Isn't funny how into this holiday we American's get? All the corona and tequila was sold out, all the Mexican restaurants were packed and Tostitos were depleted in the grocery stores. Definitely not going to lie, we celebrate! We busted out our Margaritaville margarita machine, dips and fajitas. We celebrated at Davids house, true Mexican tradition with the tequila shots before dinner. We had dips galore, chicken and steak fajitas and margarona's (a margarita with a corona). Anyway, I am Mexicaned out, I may skip tomorrows weekly fiesta. OLE!
The stache's almost look real,  huh???

very fitting for a baby, don't you think?

 I am headed to New Orleans for the week for a work conference.... that leaves two and a half men at the McCarty Casa. Please feel free to check in on them and send food :) just kidding, I am sure they boys are stoked to get momma out of the house for a few days, they are already planning their meals and golf outings. As much as Josh and Chris play golf, Cooper will be a pro by 5. He already has great hand eye coordination and has no problem swinging the club and making contact with the ball. I think he just likes swinging the golf clubs more than anything. We keep those outside now for that reason!

Have a great week,  I will catch up with you next week!
