And of course, lots of time with Cooper. Jill snapped this picture the other day after grabbing lunch with MJ, Yack, Sarah and Reese. This is one of my favorites, the kid's expressions just crack me up.
Cooper has grown really fond of the backyard. He loves to run around outside, and every now and then stops to share a stick with Molly.
Jill got him fancied up a bit to go see her friend Julie and her new baby boy River
And we had some fun with him, letting him get more acquainted with Reese
And he promptly stiff armed her away
One day he decided to see if he could fit in his drum Auntie Sarah got him
Another daily ritual we've started is letting Cooper help us get the mail across the street. Sometimes he isn't ready to come back inside just yet
The yellow leaves have turned brown, the days are getting short and winter is threatening but that isn't necessarily a bad thing as it means we'll be spending more time inside with Cooper and the puppies.
