Happy 3rd Birthday Cooper!

Yesterday, our little boy turned 3. I cannot believe that Cooper is 3! Where does the time go?!?! I remember having him like it was just yesterday. My pregnancy with Cooper was a great one! We thought that we were going to be having a little girl who we were going to name Sara Elisabeth. Boy, were we shocked when the doctor told us oops, it's a boy. Thank goodness we found that out 3 days before Cooper was born. Looking back now, I know that we were blessed with Cooper for a reason. Or maybe it is just that Heavenly Father has a great sense of humor!

Cooper has grown so much over the past year. He is 39 inches tall (75-90%) and he weighs 31lbs (25-50%). He started pre school this fall and is loving every minute of it! It amazes me how quickly he learns things. He knows his ABC's (most of them anyway, he skips a couple around k, but picks up again with p), can count to 10, can spell his name, write his name, knows all of his shapes and colors, asks tons of questions, loves to read, loves to draw, loves to play with ALL of his cousins, and he loves to dance! Cooper is also a very loving child. He will come up to me and hug me and tell me how much he loves me or tell me to have sweet dreams when I go to take a nap. Cooper is such a joy to have in our life when he is not driving us crazy!! Our lives would certainly be boring without him in it.

I hope that Cooper knows just how much we love him and how proud he makes us each and every day. I am so grateful to have been giving the opportunity to raise him, teach him, and love him. He truly is such a blessing! Now, if he would only go to bed!! Anyways, happy birthday kiddo! We love you more than you will ever know!!
