yes, 5 years ago today my world was rocked when they placed that precious little baby in my arms. i still remember looking down into his big beautiful black eyes. it was the first of three perfect moments of my life. he has grown & changed so much since then & i couldn't be more proud of the sweet little boy he has grown to be.
cooper is smart. too smart. he pays attention to everything & remembers every little detail. (often to my amusement or frustration.) he loves telling jokes & making others laugh. he has the most gorgeous smile that melts my heart in an instant. he has endless enthusiasm. his excitement radiants through every part of him & it's extremely contagious. he is super skinny & ridiculously toned for a 5 year old. he loves hearing & telling stories. his favorite things are ninjago, legos, the beach, boogie boarding, any & all  mexican food & his brothers. he is the best big brother around. he loves, cares for, & teaches his little brothers. he is usually patient & sweet to them. he dresses himself most days, which is we why he can usually be found in nothing more than a pair of basketball shorts. he loves to be independent & learn to do things for himself. he is currently working on matching his own clothes, getting the mail, memorizing his personal information, & working the microwave. 
we love that little boy more than words can say. 

happy 5th birthday, cooper.
