Cooper and the Baby- Trial Pic

In our effort to get ready for baby, we (I) have decided that every weekend Mike needs to assemble something that is in a box.

Tonight it was the car seat and lucky for Mike it really didn't require much assembly aside from taking it out of the box.

Anyhow, I like to visualize things so after the car seat was all put together I decided to put the baby's home from the hospital outfit in the car seat and then Cooper decided he needed to investigate it.

Here's a picture of Cooper and the outfit in the car seat.

I imagine this is what the first picture of Madelynn and Cooper together will look like! :)

Cooper Plays in the Snoq

Our California dog now LOVES the SNOW! As long as he's wearing a jacket or a sweatshirt!

As you can see, he's got no problems getting covered in the snow. Since Snowpocalypse 2010 last week brought 13 inches of snow to our neighborhood in 24 hours, Cooper's been just waiting to be able to go romp in it. So Saturday, we took him to the park, and walked down to the soccer field, and took him off the leash so he could run around. He started doing laps between the two of us, but the snow was so deep he looked like a serpent trying to make his way through the large drifts.

Cooper Plays Catch in the Snow

Ball playing has never been one of Cooper's strong suits, at least not outside. Sure, he loves to play fetch indoors with a tennis ball, but since I'm 97 percent certain he has ADD, when he gets outside and you try to play ball with him, it can get a little dicey since he's easily distracted. HOWEVER, he really focuses on snowballs. He loves to chase them, he loves to catch them. As you can see in the videos, though, he's not quite sure what to do with them WHEN he catches them. Usually he ends up chewing them up. Hey, great source of water!! Oh our crazy dog... ;)
