A Busy Life

Hi. My name is Josiah Roberts Coppenger. This is the first time that I have actually sat down to write a blog! I’m excited. When you see the content of this blog you’ll understand why it took me so long to write. I lead a busy life. I’m sure that those of you reading this are rolling your eyes. But the only reason that you are doing this is because you have forgotten how big of a week it is when you discover that you have an arm! I didn’t even know that arms existed, much less that I would have one of my own. I’m not sure what to do with it yet, but I’m figuring it out as fast as I can. Btw, I’m open to any advice concerning this issue (and I think that there is something very similar to an arm on the other side, although I’m having trouble focusing on that side). I could go on, but typing with these pudgy little fingers takes forever (and I still haven’t figured out what my arm is for!). 

Here are a couple of pictures of the things that fill my day. I start the day excited about what God has for me. New days, new discoveries, and all that stuff…


Excited about a new day


I enjoy reading even at this early age. My great Mom always challenges and entertains me with her great book selection (although I have to say that I am a little embarrassed that I’m not strong enough to sit up).




Sometimes I find myself in deep contemplation when Mom reads to me. Here I remember being overwhelmed by the caterpillar’s ability to eat through everything! It is almost too much to bear!




After a hard morning of learning, feeding, and screaming my brains out, I like to relax at the pool. Mom is very gracious to rub me down while I bask in my glory.

I do lots of different things at night. When I’m not trying to impress my parents with my vocal cord range, I like to hang out with my Dad and his friends. Here is one of his best friends O-town. He and his wife are supposed to be having a friend for me in the near future.  


O Town


After all of this, I’m usually so tired! I play hard and I sleep hard. Unfortunately, someone snuck into our house and played a practical joke on me. One day I’ll like frogs again I’m sure, but it is still too soon.



Bottoms up


So this is a little peak into my life. I hope you enjoyed it.
