Dear Cooper // 14 Months


I'm feeling overwhelmed with how much I love you.  The way you're learning to pick up your pace, you're so proud of yourself for "running."  When you spot a truck and yell "truck!" for the next five minutes, you know so many things and you are just as amazed with yourself as I am.  It is the most incredible gift to be able to watch you develop right before my eyes.  Your hugs, high fives, fist bumps, curiosity of everything, requests for water, love for fruit, and everything else that your little being is, it's absolutely mind blowing.  I grew up knowing that my parents loved me but I had no idea that it wasn't just love that they hard, it's the most intense fascination.

I am enamored with you.

Trucks, dirt, cats, dogs, cows, horses, food, mommy, nanny, slides, frozen yogurt, jumping, being outside, leaves, your broom, your paci, your blankets, brushing your teeth, swinging, books, and songs... you love these things with a vengeance.

You're tough but sensitive too.  You have no sassy or mean bone in your body, you're just sweet.  You let other kids rip toys out of your hands, you take no for an answer, and so many other things that I thought would be issues at this point, that just aren't because of the way you just are.  You are out for adventure and really easy to please.

We've been having play dates on Fridays that you really seem to enjoy.  You're adapting well to our crazy and hectic schedule.  You're sleeping 12-13 hours each night.  You're eating so. much. food.  You're still not taking any interest in television.  You want to go, go, go!

You're handsome.  My perfect little blonde and curly as ever haired boy.  We made it another month with it being just the two of us.  This next month might be when the dreadful changes start happening, but I'm really hoping not.

I love you more than ever.

  1. What a sweet heart! He is starting to look like a handsome little boy now... but still has his sweet baby face. =) Isn't it funny how they start changing at the speed of light right now? Exciting but bittersweet at the same time. Enjoy! =)
