One Year Ago...

God gave me the biggest blessing and miracle gift one year ago. Cooper was born via C-Section at 7:12am weighing 7 pounds 12 ounces. I feel so honored to be the mommy to such a special little boy. He is full of smiles, laughter and joy. It has been amazing to watch him reach so many milestones this year. He has 2 teeth on the bottom and several coming in on top. He has a funny sense of humor and loves to listen to music, splash in his pool and tug his Max the Monkey around. I have never experienced the overwhelming love that I feel for my precious boy. Happy Birthday son. Love, Mommy

Lions, Tigers and Bears..Oh my!!

SO, we had our first trip to the zoo. It was a blast. We packed a picnic and headed out. I was excited because I had never seen the pandas at the Memphis zoo. Cooper enjoyed looking at all the animals and really enjoyed having his first picnic. We made the mistake of feeding the squirrels and then they must have all told a friend. Before we knew it , squirrels were coming from everywhere wanting a treat. Oops!!

First swim with Mommy

So, I decided Cooper needs to get in the pool and have some summer fun. So we pack up and head on over there. He really seemed to like it and enjoyed splashing in the water. The funniest part to me was the other kids' reaction to Cooper. This little girl swam over to him and said "I love him." He was a big hit and he loved his little boat.

Two Teeth

Finally, we have our two front teeth. I was beginning to think we would have to ask Santa for some more teeth. He doesn't seem to be too terribly bothered by teething. Thank goodness.

Monkey Swinging

Cooper has a blast in his swing in my backyard. He loves to go fast and high. If I let it stop or start doing something else, he lets me know that he isn't happy. I can't wait until he is old enough to go to the park and get on the big boy swing. He is NOT a big fan of his sunglasses however. As soon as you put them on his head, he tries to take them off.

Cooper and his Mommy

There is a special bond between a mother and her son. People told me about it before Cooper was born, but I didn't quite understand. People told me " Boys love their mommas" and oh how this is true. He has just gotten to where he prefers me over anyone else if I am in the room. He wants me to hold him all the time. Our bond is very deep, and I love him to the moon and back. When we are apart my heart is broken, and I am not whole until we are reunited. I feel so honored that God allowed me to be a mommy to such an amazing little boy.


Cooper loves splashing in his pool on the back patio. He gets all duded up in his swimsuit and he takes his favorite bath toys out to play in the pool. He has so much fun and even likes to lay on his stomach and kick. It looks like we have a little fish on our hands.
