Happy Birthday, Cooper!

happy birthday coop!

Dear Cooper,

A year ago you arrived! At lunch time! Thank god I was granted a fast labor, because I swear- If I had to go more than 10 hours without eating, I would have seriously lost it!!!

Through you, I have learned that the quickest year my life, was the first year of yours. Seriously- where did the time go? How did those edible toes of yours ever fit into those teeny newborn socks?  Now you barely wear socks because you pull them off to aid your need for mobility. Silly kid!  I can’t believe you are already walking…..

You are the most delightful child! Everyone who meets you, tells me how lucky I am to have such a happy baby. It’s true… I am. I am so blessed to have you. You’ve brought so much joy into our lives, I don’t even know where to begin!

There have been ups and downs throughout this past year, and I don’t know how I would have been able to make it through if it wasn’t for you!  I can’t get enough of your scrunchy face smiles & those giggles of yours- and OMG those little teeth! How fast they cut through a loaf of bread!  It’s adorable, yet frightening to witness you chomp through a bar of soap!  Why must you do that? Don’t you realize how gross it tastes?

Thank you for being a good boy! Thank you for making me laugh and to help remember that life is about learning new things- constantly!  I had no idea how wonderful it is to squeeze and kiss such soft baby cheeks until I met you.  You are my ray of sunshine, and you make me proud.

Love Always,

Your Momma

p.s- I am making some cupcakes while you take your nap.  I hope you love them!

p.p.s- look at you! A few hours old!  You are a big boy now!
