5 months of roly poly, squishy, giggly, yummy, wiggly goodness. This kid is always moving & loves to be where the noise & fun is. We’ve absolutely loved seeing his feisty personality come out more!
Never was there ever a more perfect man for us. Every day you exemplify 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, & you bear the weight of fatherhood beautifully. Growing up with so many siblings & therefore having a little practice in the baby department, this has come so naturally to you. But more than just knowing how to change a diaper or burp them, it is apparent that you delight in these little blessings. You show them the love of Christ every day by your desire for their good, the intentionality of how you think about parenting choices, & your desire to be your best for them. Wouldn’t want to (couldn’t) do this without you💕
Started the day off with balloons & Donuts (with sprinkles of course!). Ended with the splash pad & Woody & Buzz! I could write a novel about this precious boy & all the joy he brings (as well as a bajillion photos of the past 2 years) but I’d really like to not start bawling (I’ve already started a few times today😫) so I’ll just say (this is going to be a novel anyway wtvr)...God sure was gracious in giving us this beautiful boy. He has made the transition into parenthood SO easy (not joking & don’t be jealous, we think we just won the kid lottery. Everything we were told would be hard about having a baby/kid..he’s proved wrong so far) & truly made every single day wonderful. It’s true when they say that having kids gives you a new perspective, but I never quite knew how magical seeing the world through my own child’s eyes would be. In the 3rd picture here he’s saying “I’m so excited!!” & in the last 1 he’s saying “to infinity & beyond” while flying Buzz “super high”. Anyone else crying?! Happy Birthday Coopy. You’re 1 of a kind. I pray every day that you might become a man of God, loving, faithful, kind, brave, generous, honorable, & servant hearted. And if you ever read this someday, I hope you know how very much you are loved. Thanks for being so easy to please so I don’t feel too horrible about not having a huge birthday party, someday we’ll tell you about this whole time & what was happening in the world. But watch out..your 3rd birthday party is going to be nuts!🎉
Hey ladies!😂 While my big bro was at Grandmas, my mom tried out the camera on her new phone & took my 4 month pictures (a few days late but I’ll forgive her cause she has a lot going on). My favorite things are... Smiling at my brother (or anyone really), being sung to, chewing on my hands, eating (if you couldn’t tell by my thighs), & being wherever the action is cause I have major fomo. I don’t know much, but my mom is still my favorite person, & these past 4 months have been pretty swell!
Pro tip - if you’re a mom with more than 1 child, just check that expectation @ the door of everyone smiling @ the same time for a picture. Honestly don’t even care, they’re so stinkin cute & I’m obsessed with them. Having my own babies has made me so grateful for my own mom, all the things she did to make our childhood special & the sacrifices she made for us. My m-i-l who gave birth to 11 children & raised my husband (each a ft in & of itself!😂) And all my mama friends I can’t wait to squeeze who are always ready to offer up wisdom or “I have no idea, either, but you’re doing great!”
- At the point in quarantine where we’re going for walks in other neighborhoods for a change of scenery. - Swipe for the greatest picture I’ve ever taken😂 - Please always stay little my sweet boy😍
Our chunky monkey turned 3 months yesterday, although he’s been wearing 3-6 month clothes since around 2 months😱the kid has quite an appetite, & has already rolled over & broken out of his swaddle a few times #soadvanced 😂 Getting to know this happy boy has been nothing but joy. I never had any premonition as to what Cooper would be like when I was pregnant, but with Wes, I knew he would be strong. I call him my little ferocious boy because...well 1st off..the hair. Can’t be tamed let me tell ya, I’ve tried! And 2nd, he is SO chill..until he’s not. Goes from 0-60 in 2 seconds, has some pipes on him, & when he’s hungry you’d think he hadn’t eaten in a year! These pictures made possible by my lovely rendition of Aladdins “A Whole New World”. I even sang both parts but as you can see, he got bored by the last picture 😂
Felt bad for 2 seconds for not doing most of the traditional Easter-y celebration activities, but then remembered 1 little boys day was MADE starting with cinnamon rolls, going on a long bike ride with dad, watching Emperors New Groove & then hiking A mountain to watch the airplanes. And the other baby boy is happy just being fed & talked to so, even though we’re sad to not be able to celebrate with family, all in all it was a very Happy Easter & we are so grateful to know our King is Alive & on His throne!
