First Dentist Appointment

This afternoon, Cooper had his first ever dentist appointment and he did great!  Brad and I also had cleanings, so the amazing staff at Eiler Family Dentistry kinda babysat Cooper while we got our stuff done.  We chose to take Cooper to Robin and not to ACH because he knows Robin well.  She and her family often babysit Cooper and they are close friends, so I thought it would be better if it was someone he was comfortable with.  I think he really liked the cherry flavored toothpaste they used.  And though I don't think he was the biggest fan of the spinning toothbrush or the mirror they used to examine him, he tolerated it with only a minimum of grumbling.  And now, pictures!!

This picture doesn't show his mood.  He liked the toothpaste, if not the toothbrush.

Robin examining him:

Yay!  We're finished!!

And now for something completely off topic...

This has been all over the news lately.  And I just don't get it.  I have conservative friends and I have liberal friends, so I am honestly looking for some answers that make sense.  The whole Chic-Fil-A thing baffles me.  I am not a lesbian, and I have no desire to date girls, but if I did, why is that anyone's business?  And why should who you love be against the law?  All the arguments from the Bible are from the Old Testament.  Last I checked, if you were a Christian, all that got wiped out by the New Testament.  Jesus doesn't say ANYTHING about same sex couples.  He also doesn't mention airplanes, guns, fast food, hair products, etc.  Should we make all of those things illegal too?  Jesus preached about love and acceptance.

Marriage is HARD.  You meet hundreds of thousands of people in your life.  To be able to find and connect with one person that you can live with and love for the rest of your life is AMAZING.  I just don't see what the problem is if that person happens to be the same gender as you.

Here's the thing.  I get why people could be angry about abortion.  I get why people want liberal gun laws.  I get plenty of other hot button political issues.  I can see both sides.  I may not agree with both sides, but I get it.  This one, I just don't get.  I don't understand why people are so angry about love.  What do you think is going to happen?  As far as I can tell, in the six states where gay marriage is legal,  NOTHING has happened.  Our world as we know it has not come to an end.  The terrorists didn't win.  In fact, in some places, those extra marriages have made the economy slightly better.  So it was a win!  Anyway, please feel free to comment.  But don't get mean.

My next post will be more about the cutest man in the world.  Promise.

Good News!

Last week, Cooper had an echo to check for pulmonary hypertension... and the test was negative!!  Yay!!  A good test result for once is a very welcome change of pace.

In other news, Cooper is sitting up A LOT!  And for huge periods of time (like half an hour).  It's amazing.  This picture was taken today.  Apparently, it's a really hard way to sit.  Go Cooper!
