FC: Ross Family 2008
1: In Jan of 2008 we lived in Flagstaff, AZ. Tyrel worked for Atlas Copco. We lived in Flagstaff for a little over a year and enjoyed it. | Jan-May was kind of a slow time. I was pregnant with Trip and after being int he hospital a couple times from throwing up too much and then in March at 26 weeks Trip tried to come early so I was airlifted to Phoenix,Az hospital where I stayed for a couple weeks and then we on bed rest for 9 more weeks. So needles to say there are not may pictures at the beginning of this year. This is a gift we got Cooper to help pass some of his boredom with a couch ridding mom!!
2: This is the 1st house we lived in Flagstaff. We lived there for about 5mo. | Cooper loved to have us throw the ball on the roof and laugh when it hit the ground.
3: Cooper enjoying some of his final moments of being an only child! Above is Cooper fixing his four-wheeler with his tools. It's amazing how boys naturally do boy things!
4: We were able to go to the sports expo in Phoenix and hang out with Grandpa and Grandma at their booth!!
5: Above are the pretty flowers that Dad and Cooper got Mom for Mother's Day Cooper asleep in Grandpa's arms. This is a rare occasion to see Cooper sit still in someone's arms.
6: It took a lot to get Trip here, but he made it. After being in the hospital with IV's and hospital visits and bed rest for 11 weeks, he came emergency c-section. His umbilical cord was wrapped around both legs.

11: Well now that mom and Trip and feeling better we finally got to get out. We packed up and found a campground near Flagstaff.!! | It was a little chilly at night. But Trip slept the best bundled up in is car seat.!
13: It was a wonderful weekend. Cooper enjoyed climbing and helping dad! | The water was a little cold, but Cooper didn't mind too much and Trip was too busy sleeping through everything
14: I found this bedset for when Cooper was ready to move out of his crib and he was so excited he slept in his toddler bed that night!! So it was easier than we thought!! | Trip started out loving his swing and slept their quite a bit before he turned clingy!!
