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!

This is how we told Phil's parents - Phil made the outfit for Lucy!
telling Carly she's going to be an Aunt via skype
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
