Happy Birthday Cooper!!

Cooper started the day off with blueberry pancakes, singing happy birthday, watching re-runs of Handy Manny, opened one present from mom and dad...a basketball goal, had our one year check-up with 4 shots, a nap, went to sitter where he had cupcakes with his friends, more presents, his first bubble bath and more Handy Manny.

Cooper and his presents

I still can't believe that my baby is a year old. It really seems like he was just born yesterday. Jacob and I laid in bed last night talking about "remember what we were doing this time last year"? I keep finding myself today looking at the clock and thinking about what was happening at each hour. We were so excited to meet Mr. Cooper! He has been the greatest blessing to Jacob and me. I never imagined that someone so small could bring so much joy and happiness into your life. It has been a GREAT (but fast) year. Its been fun experiencing all the new things that parenthood brings you. We look forward to another year and many many more!
