Growing Up So Fast

            Today marks the 8 month birthday of my little Cooper man!  Sure it's not really a big birthday or even an official birthday at all but it's the 8th of the month, he's 8 months old, and has grown so much since the day I picked him out at Love At First Sight when he was just 8 weeks old.  So I thought a blog post was necessary and thought you might enjoy seeing just what a BIG baby he has become.

From day one at the vet weighing in at a whopping 12 pounds 
(his original name at the shelter was Hefty!)...

To this week at his check up where he tipped the scales at 51 pounds!  

(Ellyse, can you believe that he outweighs Riley now?!)

And though he's gotten bigger in size for sure he is still a scaredy cat who is skeptical of dumpsters, the vacuum cleaner, and the neighbor's chihuahua.  

Not so sure about this whole vet thing either!


  1. He's ginormous!!!!!!!

  2. I cannot believe it! He is going to be a huuuge doggie when he grows up! There is a puppy next door to us that looks like Cooper, only its a girl and her name is Bentley. I think it confuses Riley! haha
