Happy Birthday Cooper!

Okay, so I am a few days late. Cooper turned four on Saturday the 12th. I cannot believe my baby boy is four!! You expect your oldest to grow up and hit milestones, but when your babies start to do it, it makes me super sad. He thinks he is a big boy now, he told me today that he doesn't have to take a nap because he is four now. :) You know the saying, "terrible twos, trying threes, finally four", well lets just say I hope that comes true with my little Cooper. He has really been a stinker lately. He has a hard time controlling his anger and he has zero patience. I guess only time will tell, but you all know what I will be praying about. Cooper we love you more than anything and are so thankful God gave you to us. You can make me smile faster than anyone and you always give me the best hugs and kisses. I hope this year is fantastic for you and I can't wait to see what the future holds for my little man. Happy Birthday!

Sept. 12, 2005- our first photo with Cooper
Sept. 2009, Coop thinks he is super big holding his baby cousin Heidi
Coop is a huge water dog, he is not scared at all, and loves to swim under the water
Coop got a surprise in the mail on Saturday. This is Chuckles the clown. Yes, she is huge and the kiddos love her. I just know I am going to be walking through the living room at night and that thing is going to scare me to death. Thanks Grammy and Grampy. :)
I wanted you all to get a good idea of how tall Chuckles is, Josh is 6'3". Chuckles is easily 8' tall, Ruby loves her too! :)
