This is The Beast, and it now inhabits my living room (because it's the only place big enough in my entire house for it!) Cooper got it at Toys R Us this weekend, when we took him there so he could spend his birthday money, and this is what we came home with. A special thanks to Aunt Julie, Grandma Bonnie and Grandpa Walt, and TJ for the b-day money/giftcard!
Friday the 22nd was Cooper's first birthday, so i wanted to make it a really fun day for him. First, he slept in until 10 o'clock! When he got up, i took a pic of him at 10:22am (exactly one year old). Then he ate the panackes i made him for breakfast. Then we took him to the mall for lunch and rode the carousel (which he didn't like). Then he played in the indoor playground at the mall for over and hour! He loved that!
Here's a picture of me and Cooper on my 1st Mothers Day. It was so awesome being able to celebrate Mother's day this year (last year i was 18 months pregnant). Cooper is the greatest thing in the whole world and he can make the worst day 1000 times better with his smile! He brings so much happiness and I love him so much!
Rawn, Cooper, and I went over to our friends Patrick and McKayla's new apartment and went swimming! We had so much fun together and Cooper loved the pool. Coop was so funny when we went back to their apartment after swimming, and he was playing with Patrick, so whenever Patrick would put his head down, Cooper would crawl over to him as fast as he could and lay his head down right on top of Patrick's!
