A Couple of Weeks Ago...

I meant to post these pics the night before Katie went in to have Brock, but life just got crazy busy- as they seem to do now that we have Ruby. :) My parents came down the weekend before and like always the kids got to soak up some good Pa and Mimi lovin. We had a family dinner Saturday at Katie's, one last hooray before Brock made his debut, and we had a blast. Lily and Cooper go into serious Ella and Ryder withdraws if they don't see them on a regular basis. Ella and Ryder have been in Woodward all week to give their mama a little time to heal from Brock's delivery, and Lily and Cooper have been dying to go see their cousins. It is truly wonderful how close they are. These pictures just make me smile, so I thought I would share them with the blogging world. Enjoy!!! :)
Cooper is a serious Pa's boy!!!! He doesn't leave him alone for long when Pa is around. :) I kept trying to get Coop to get down and leave Pa alone and my dad would tell me to leave Coop alone!
Mimi is also a BIG hit around the grand kids. They fight over who gets to sleep with Mimi when she visits!
Best Friends!
Josh likes to have documented proof that Ella does indeed love him! :)
On the other hand... Ryder does not like Uncle Josh to pick him up! If you can't tell in this pic Ryder is screaming!!!
A little dance entertainment from the one and only Ella Bella!

Coop LOVES for his Uncle Jason to throw him up in the air. Boy does Jason throw him high, this pic does not do the height justice.

One last belly shot before the big day (that was two weeks ago)!And I hated to post without one pic of our new princess. Here she is getting some love from Ella as Mimi plays referee! ;)

So, how cute is that photo of Pa and Cooper? Love it. That's the kind of grandparent I want to be when I have grands. I'm practicing on the granddog right now. I hold him on my lap when he visits. Can't quite wrap an 80lb. golden around my shoulders, but he would probably let me try!
I also love the Ryder/Josh pic - funny.

Cute pictures. Great job. I love Katie's dress in that one pic (the one with polka dots).

The pic of Jason tossing Coop and the pic of Josh holding Ella are very cute.

Ryder won't let me hold him either! But he did finally let me play ball with him!
Love all the pictures you have a n awesome family. Love the picture of Pa and Cooper too.
