Getting bigger by the minute

Cooper had a checkup on Monday. He's just over 10 weeks old and is thriving (that's what his doctor said!). He has officially doubled his birth weight and he's not even three months old! My boy is one serious eater. His doctor said because of his weight and advanced development, we should be working on getting him to sleep through the night (that's the nice way of saying let him cry it out). We've start the whole crying it out process and guess what .... Cooper just goes to bed, sleeps about 8 hours and never fusses. I guess this is the easiest crying it out experience ever (knock on wood).

After a week of this, I'm gonna take it to the next level and try to out him to bed a little earlier. Right now he goes down between 9:30 and 10 p.m., but if he keeps sleeping so well I'm going to move his bed time to 8 p.m. It feels like we might actually be getting into a routine and Coop might just let us return to a normal sleep pattern!!! Woo-hoo for good sleepers!

Here's a sly little smile from our sweet boy. He's a really happy guy.

Here are his stats:

Weight: 15 lbs. 8.5 ozs.
Height: 24.5 inches
Head: 16.5 inches

At 10 weeks, Cooper is just an all around happy guy. He loves his sister best. He laughs and smiles all the time. He's super strong, and loves to show off his strength during tummy time. We are so blessed to have such a great baby (and a helpful big sister to go with him)!
