Ha! Ha! Gotcha! It is another boy, but he has four legs. His name is Cooper and he is eight weeks old and very sweet. Initially Colin wanted to name him "Cooster" and he was actually saying, "Here, Cooster" but that name didn't sit right with me and, frankly, he does NOT look like a Cooster, so we improvised and named him Cooper. He's a yellow lab and he is a lot of work, but the boys LOVE him! We have majorly improved in the area of potty training and we are currently shopping for a good obedience school. Cooper is very lovable. The other day Colin, Carter and Cooper were all in Cooper's crate...and today Carter was hauling him around in the back of his power wheels, so I think Cooper is in for some adventure! It really does feel like another baby is in the house b/c we're up with him all the time and he needs just as much love (and supervision).
The last few weeks have been pretty busy. Two weeks ago Matt and Kristina visited from Austin and that was a fun weekend. Andy, Nick and Matt went golfing, then cooked dinner and the girls got to get a mani-pedi and go shopping!
On Sunday we reorganized the house and moved Colin and Carter into the same (bigger) room. (Thanks for your help, Nick!) That has actually been a very smooth transition and Colin and Carter love their new room. Clayton is in Cart's old room and he is sleeping even better now that he is away from most of the noise.
Then on Tuesday we picked up Cooper from Dallas. I spoke with a friend of a friend on the phone and asked if we could drive out to see the puppies (there were two left, so we had to act fast--this is the second litter we checked on, the first one was sold out). She said ok; she said she had five kids, was pregnant, and her house was the house with all the kids toys out front. So I I'm thinking we're about to pull up to a trailer park...but no...Cooper is from a very wealthy home! This house was AMAZING--it must have been well over $1 million and in the area near Park Cities Baptist Church in Dallas. WOW! Anyway, that was a long first night--Cooper woke up at 12 and 3...just like a newborn.
On Friday YaYa flew in from MD and we celebrated Uncle Rick's birthday with a little swimming at the pool and food from Joe T's. On Sunday Mr. Rick smoked BBQ and it was incredible! YaYa, how do I have no pics of you? I'm going to have to cut and paste your face on someone's body!
And FINALLY...tomorrow is the last day of school for me and the boys! But not so fast, Colin has a 103 degree fever...and we're getting their new play set delivered tomorrow...and...
...it's summer time!!!!!!!!!
