Lucy & Cooper

So we think it's official that Lucy & Cooper are bonding. This is the first official photograph of the two of them together. :) The other night Lucy & I were sitting on the couch and Cooper started dancing around.......so I lifted my tank top up to see and as I did Lucy put her paw on my belly and left it there for a good 10-15 min.! Not that I want to bare my growing belly often, but thought this was pretty stinkin' cute.........I snapped a shot with my phone (apologies for the quality), but couldn't resist sharing with my dog lover friends!

Cooper's Nursery

Here's a sneak peak of lil' Cooper's nursery!!! The bedding is from Pottery Barn Kids and I'm sure no surprise to many of you that it's plaid!!!! We love it! The picture with the star is a wooden box with a quote on it that we were thinking about getting to hang in his room. The red & white gingham is a sheet - haven't decided if we'll use red, navy or blue - however I hear the ultimate crib sheet is a must so the colored one will be for decoration :) oh and the letter C - it's an idea from the oh so fabulous site etsy! (it's not with the angel - the seller just posted the picture like that) We're not sure if we're going to use these letters or something else. All still a work in progress!

We have his furniture (still in boxes) until we (and by we I mean Phil) finish the beadboard! Wish I could help, but I'm pretty clueless when it comes to that stuff. He's been hard at work and well on the way to finishing! We're painting a light green color on the top half and white beadboard on the bottom! Once the beadboard is finished we'll put the furniture up and show pictures! For now.......we'll show you our lil' storyboard of ideas and what the room use to look like. :)
This is what the room use to look like :) If you see it now it's green on the top with beadboard on two of the walls and the lovely orange on the other...... quite the site!

The Journey Begins!!!

Welcome to our blog!

We're so excited for this time in our lives and looking forward to sharing it with friends & family! Most of you know by now that we have a lil' baby boy on the way!!!
Cooper Reid Hankinson is scheduled to arrive Oct. 19th 2010!!!

We are enjoying this special time in our lives and look forward to having Cooper here with us. We are very pleased to say that the pregnancy has been smooth thus far! We are loving all that comes along with pregnancy: sharing the news with friends and family, watching the bump grow (and now move and groove) , planning and decorating his nursery, asking lots of questions and praying for our soon to be family of 3! We hope you will enjoy hearing about our lil' family and seeing pictures as we begin this journey of being Cooper's parents!

We’ve included several pictures of events throughout our journey! Enjoy!

these are my cousin's shoes - he told Phil to put them under the bed if we wanted to get pregnant! So when we told Cori's parents we gave them back the shoes to give to cousin Bill
