A perfect 10 on 10/10/10!!!

"He's Here!!! He's Here!!!" they shouted from the mountain tops ... well not really mountain tops just a barage of texts, phone calls, and answered prayers. We are proud to introduce to you our son Cooper Reid Hankinson. Born 4:50am October 10th, 2010. He weighed 7 lb and 13 oz and was 20.5 inches long.
For those of you who are wondering if we planned on having his birthday be 10/10/10 due to Cori's supreme planner primal instinct ... the answer is no ... Cooper just lucked into having a pretty cool birthday. Mom and baby are doing great, but we are all a little drained after our all night dance party.
Thanks to all of you who prayed for our son ... we can happily say that our prayers and yours have been answered! Here are a few pics to look at (thanks to Carly for being our official photographer). I don't have to tell you that Cori will have many many more posted in the weeks to come.
Much love and thanks - Phil (and Cori and Cooper and Lucy ... can't forget Lucy)
The happy little family's first portrait together!
Cooper insisted on finger wrestling to determine who gets to lay on mommy's chest ... he won.

I can't imagine who put that hat on him ... but it does look pretty darn classy.


  1. Yay! Congrats guys! He is adorable...and Cori does not look like she just had a baby! Beautiful as always!! :)

  2. Yay! Congratulations! What a beautiful boy! You should let phil write on the blog more often. This was pretty funny;) cant wait to meet cooper!

  5. Phil and Cori,

    What a handsome little guy! This is such a great time in your life and Cooper will no doubt be the perfect little "added dimension" you've been waiting for. All babies are the sweetest and the best!! Love, love, love his birthdate - I wrote it out today and thought it was cool and then I discovered a few minutes ago on the blog that it was your big day!!! Something told me we just should have known your little guy's entrance onto the world's stage would be especially unique and noteworthy!! I think he is beyond blessed to have you two as parents. Congratulations and Blessings! Love,
    Marty Faull
