Happy Birthday Cooper!

Ok it’s not really Cooper’s birthday but he is officially a year and a half years old and in baby time that’s a big deal!  (At least for me!)

I hope you don’t mind the non-design related post but my family and friends read my blog and they probably actually like the Cooper updates more than the house updates!

Time is flying by with this little one!  He is 100% boy!

He likes to run, climb, scream, laugh and smile!  He wants to open every cabinet and drawer and figure out how everything works.  He likes to stand in the bath tub and run down the drive way.   He has a mouth full of teeth.  He’s becoming a little more picky when he eats now and his favorite foods are anything carb or fruit related.

We went to Panama City Beach for Spring Break and he was perfect on the 12 hour car ride both there and back.  He also was wonderful the entire trip.  He hated the sand but loved the pool and people watching on the beach.

He loves people and loves attention.  He can be stubborn but also loves to laugh so hard his face turns red.  His favorite song is Happy by Pharrell and his favorite show is Puppy Patrol and Family Feud! (:

The Coopster keeps me on my toes and his saving grace is he loves his naps, goes to bed by 7:30 every night and loves to snuggle in the morning.

If I had to pick only one thing I like the best about my sweet baby is that he wakes up every morning with a smile on his face ready to make that day the best day ever!!!

There’s not a day that goes by that he doesn’t remind me how blessed we are and that he’s brought a whole level of happiness to our little world!

Gold Foil Art Print

If you’ve read my blog before you know I hate mass produced artwork, you know the kind you can find at the big box stores.  I’m not a snob though, I love handmade artwork, I love local artist, I love images I find for free online and last but not least I love art you can find on etsy.  So … Continue reading
