For several reasons I find this post appropriate......
1 - it's been awhile since I've posted any picts
2 - Cooper is finally saying da-da - music to our ears....especially Phil's
3 - Phil is out of town for the week and we miss him
     (my mom would tell me it's not smart to tell people your husband is out of town)
     (thankfully, you all are trusty worthy people and won't try and break in)
4 - they are fun picts to share

This was on Valentine's Day
cute shirt my aunt gave him!

 these blocks were a Christmas gift from our dear friends and they are a HUGE hit

you've seen Cooper in this shirt before from a previous post, but here are Phil and Cooper both wearing the shirts from our awesome cousins in England

 this pict just makes me laugh
I can't decide who looks more excited
Cooper thinking "please, mom...we are just wearing matching shirts - do we really have to take 100 picts" or Phil thinking "get use to it buddy!"
 warming up to the idea!
 much better!

 what a crew
 looks suspicious

Turning ONE is fun!

Cooper's buddy (neighbor) Finn just turned ONE!!! We had a great time celebrating this lil' fella monster style! The cake was amazing! Not to mention that the food was delicious - Rob made a seafood boil for all the adults! Despite the misery of Cooper teething/runny nose he enjoyed the party. Here are a few picts! Happy 1st Birthday Finn! We love you! 

 The birthday boy and his precious sister Xadie
 Please notice that as he's digging in for his smash cake he is also holding an ear of corn! ha!
 The sweet Collier Family
 this moment was just funny to me - these are Cooper's "older" buddies....Xan & Owen.
Cooper apparently wanted to be like one of the older kiddos!

Cooper is 16 months!

Cooper is 16 months today! Just this past week ALL 4 molars have come times! He's been a trooper. He loves bringing us books to read to him. Not saying too much just yet other than babbling quite often. Mama and bye bye are big on his list.  He's able to reach the door knobs now and still loves going outside as much as possible. Here are a few more random shots from this past month! Enjoy and have a great weekend!

He looks very annoyed with Lucy here

Going to the Chapel

One of my best friends, Blaire just got engaged!!! We are so very excited to celebrate her and Jacque in June!!! We of course wanted to celebrate this fabulous news so we had a lil' engagement dinner party. For those that don't know Blaire her favorite color is pink - so yes, we all wore pink!!! Here are a few picts from our night together!
