Newcomer of the Year

We've been having fun taking lots of pictures of Cooper in the 11 days since he was born.  We are loving our Canon Rebel DSLR camera and how easy it is to use and get good pictures. 

I had decided to try to do our own newborn photos instead of hiring a photographer.  They may not be as perfect as we could get, but we thought we could get at least a few good shots!  David actually shot several pictures while we were waiting to be discharged from the hospital and most of those were really good.  And then we set up a little backdrop in our living room Saturday afternoon and took some more pictures.  

We ordered birth announcements with some of the pictures on them, so I'll wait until those go out before sharing most of the pictures from the photo shoot, but I thought I'd share a few that aren't going on our announcement.

One of our free Saturdays in the Fall we were out running errands and decided to drop into Rally House to see if there was anything we might want for Cooper.  And of course there was.  We found a lot of things that we liked, but ended up narrowing it down to 3 Baylor things and 3 OU things.  The outfits we bought are still too big for him, but we also bought these ball caps that say "Newcomer of the Year."  They are obviously too big for him too, but we thought they were fun for our photo shoot.


We love our little Sooner Bear!

We got a lot of Rangers clothes for him--both hand me downs and as gifts--but it's fun to have a few things to represent our colleges as well.
