John Parker-11 weeks

Grandparents and Aunt Linda this for you :)

John Parker is 11 weeks old now. {This is Jennifer G.} I tried to take a few pictures this morning, but I don't think I had my camera on all the right settings and we had a lot of 'help' {i.e. Cooper and Landree, drums, an aquadoodle, baseballs, etc. in the background}. I did get a few good ones. These are my favorites:

Welcome to the World John Parker!

For all of the loyal blog readers here's a little peak at John Parker! This is a post I did about him on my blog. Jennifer Gray

This morning at 9:37 am John Parker Brewer was welcomed to the world by his mom, dad, brother Cooper and Grandparents Bobby and Wylone Brewer and Jean Bailey. Congratulations Brewers! We love you and can't wait to watch John Parker grow!

Oh, and he is a big baby! His stats: 9 lbs 12 oz and 22 3/4 inches long (and he's a week early!) Jennifer grows big babies!




The proud Papa: I love seeing how excited Michael is. I was there when Cooper was born too and I'll never forget how nervous and worried Michael looked. He's a pro now-love the grins and excitement!



John Parker:



His feet are huge!


The family: Cooper meeting John Parker for the first time!

Landree meeting John Parker:


On a side note: Did you know there are perfect toddler size closets in hospital rooms?




The germ freak in me can't stop thinking about the fact that the 'closet' said dirty linens on the was empty and we didn't notice that until after the fact!

Pool pictures

We (Landree and I; this is Jennifer Gray) went over to the Cooper's this afternoon to play in Cooper's new pool. The kids had a great time. It took Landree a little time to warm up, but with Cooper no warm up time needed! His little chin was shaking at one point because he was so cold, but he's tough and playing outside is fun! Here are a few of my favorite pictures I 'caught' of him. It's hard to do with this fast moving boy!

Here they are playing yesterday at the house. They were 'lounging' in the backyard. Notice Cooper's smile he's giving me. I think they look like a little old couple. So cute!

Redneck way to bring in the trash...

As long as I'm the one posting I can put what I want, right? (Jennifer Gray here) I thought this was so funny! As Michael pulled in the driveway tonight this was following behind this truck. He's pretty smart though...they have a super long driveway and a steep hill.

Photoshop fun

Jennifer Gray again...
I'm a self taught, new to photoshop, digital scrapbooker. I am always looking for new ways to edit pictures. There is so much about photoshop I don't know. It took me a month to figure out how to open the work space. I was trying a few new things today and I love the way this picture of Cooper turned out. I think it just 'fits' him. The original is on his blog header.

A courtesy post...

Because I'm sick of looking at the Easter bunny pictures too, and because I want Cooper's adoring fans to see new pictures I volunteered to update Jennifer's blog. This is her friend Jennifer Gray.

First of all BIG NEWS-Jennifer is pregnant. Baby #2 is due November 23th (the day after Jennifer's birthday). She wasn't feeling well at first, but is doing much better now as long as she can take a nap (hence no time for blogging). She will be 11 weeks on Saturday.

Now for what everyone has been waiting for PICTURES!

On Saturday afternoon we (the Gray's) stopped by to see Jennifer's mom, who is in from Alabama. A few minutes turned into the afternoon and we stayed for dinner. Cooper and Landree had a great time playing outside. Landree fell and busted her lip on the driveway-Jennifer has a lot of experience with this and suggested a popsicle to help with the swelling. Cooper had to have one too. I got several cute pictures of both of them. This is probably the most pictures I've ever gotten of Cooper at one time. A popsicle will keep that boy still! I love this new fake smile thing Cooper is doing. I asked him to smile and below is what I got.

Today Michael got these pictures of Cooper and Landree...eating popsicles on the back steps. Cooper fell and busted his of course he needed a popsicle to help with the swelling. Do you see a trend here? Cooper wanted to be sure Landree had one too. He gave the first one to her-what a little gentleman. Jennifer made them take their shirts off so it wasn't so messy. She laid a towel in Landree's lap to keep her pants clean. Yum! They love popsicles!

Easter morning

The Easter bunny came last night. He brought lots of fun stuff and goodies for Cooper to enjoy.

Cooper's Easter basket

Good morning Cooper man. Cooper has started sleeping with an Aubie and a stuffed dog that Michael gave me our 1st Valentine's Day together. He wanted to bring them with him this morning.

Micheal thought I was crazy, but the Easter bunny always hid my Easter basket. It was fun searching for it on Easter morning so we are going to continue that tradition. We hid his basket under the sheet on our bed.

Of course, the first thing he went for were the eggs that looked like basketballs

He also got this cow that is dressed like a bunny. It moos Here Comes Peter Cotton Tail. Cooper loves it. He tries to moo with it. It is so cute.
