Cooger's FIRST Birthday

^^We ate lots of yummy food and treats!!^^

^^talked and laughed^^

^^enjoyed the happy birthday boy!^^
and watched Coog open presents!
^^so happy to get animal magnets, yay haha!^^
^^a musical book^^
^^"Because I'm a Wild Animal" poster for his room^^
 ^^more awesome musical books!^^
 ^^that doubled as a sweet seat!^^
^^balls, balls, and more balls!^^
^^and a lego John Deere tractor for the win!^^
^^Now for some CAKE TIME!^^

^^He didn't quite know what to think about it. He definitely didn't dig in!^^
^^So we tried to help him know what to do^^
^^That just resulted in 'sharing' and cake in the face for daddy!

^^so mommy tried the 'lick your fingers' technique, but that didn't work either^^
^^The cake wasn't a hit haha^^
 ^^ The balloons were until one popped under his bum. That combined with lack of sleep was a recipe for a little melt down. But it didn't last long and he got back to his happy little self!^^

^^We ate lots of candy and made treat bags to take home^^

^^and just had a grand ol' time celebrating this stud!^^

Thank you everyone for the support, love and gifts. Coog is one lucky man to have such great family! And we're the luckiest mommy and daddy to have him.

Cooger is ONE

Cooger Reid,
I can't believe how fast that year went by. You have changed and grown so much. I wish I could freeze time a little bit and just enjoy this stage you're in forever. You bring daddy and I so much happiness. You often get us laughing by all the funny things you do. Your laugh is the best sound and so contagious. The hard giggles and gut laughs usually happen when you and daddy are wresting and playing or being tickled or chased. You are always looking for excitement and are ready to play. Those big smiles or yours are quite the crowd pleaser. Whenever we are out, you get lots of compliments on how cute you are, and how much hair you have, and how happy you are! Your fan club consists of loving grandmas, grandpas, and lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins. You have a good amount of feisty and a good amount of sweet. Your cuddles, hugs, and loves are my favorite!
 Because you are always changing and growing we want to remember how you are right now so....right now you...
