The many hairstyles of Cooper

I have a lot of blog catching up to do. But since I have a sick babe right now that is thankfully sleeping at the moment I'll have to keep it divide it up. Today you get the many hairstyles of Cooper.

So the Coop-Dog has had many hair styles throughout his little life. He was born with this full head of dark hair. I miss that hair.

Then there was the receding hair line or should we say cul-de-sacs. Still cute.
And then.... The Mullet. Enough said.

And the balding look...Previously we just let his hair do what it want. Then we decided to grab some clippers and take action.

AfterA much improved look I must say. hmm love that little boy.

Also, are you thinking of getting any pictures taken?

Busy Summer

I can't believe the last time I wrote was when Cooper was 4 months. He's six months now! Time goes by so quickly. We've been very busy in the Schmutz house lately.
About a week ago Colin's parents left to serve as mission president and "mission mother" in the Philippines. We were busy getting in all the time that we could with the family before they left. We are going to miss them so much but we are so excited for them and the great experience they will have. I can't wait till Christmas when we get to go visit! So right as they left we moved into their house. We are holding down the fort here the whole three years they are gone. It is quite the upgrade from our little tiny house. I don't even know what to do with all the space I have now.
I do have to give a little shout out to our first house though. I miss it! It was the first place we lived when we got married. It was the home we brought Cooper home to. We spent two plus years there and I'd grown to love that little house in that ghetto neighborhood. Luckily my little sister is living in it for the time being so we can go and visit.
So we are unpacking boxes and settling in here. another thing that is keeping me busy is Cooper. He is mobile people! He discovered rolling one day and is now on the go. Who knew rolling could be such an effective way of getting around? He acts like he wants to crawl and I wouldn't mind at all if he waited awhile to do that. This little guy already keeps me on my toes. Oh and he is allergic to eggs. Don't ask how we found that one out but it was dramatic experience for me (probably not as much for him). We're all good now.
In our spare time we are just trying to live up summer before Colin goes back to school. Swimming, BBQing, and hanging out.
Tomorrow me and Cooper are of the California for a little Vacay and a wedding so I better start packing. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure because we all know a post without pictures is boring. This ones cracks me up. This is Cooper and his cousin Bennett. Got to love those faces.
