Happy Fourth Birthday Cooper

Our sweet little Cooper turns four today!

Born on our fifth wedding anniversary {Yes, today is our anniversary too! See the previous post.}, Cooper has been a joy ever since. He was my sweet little snuggler, as seen in the photo above snuggling with mom shortly after he was born.
Cooper was the easiest of my three labors thus far, and has been a pretty easy child from the start. With the exception of a few months of extremely terrible two's, Coop is a boy who loves to please and see others happy. He is kind, sensitive and a bit goofy too. Cooper can break out into laughter at the drop of a hat, for no reason at all, and that laughter is contagious! Pretty soon everyone around him is laughing with absolutely no idea why.

I think all our children seem to really 'fit' their names, but perhaps Cooper fits his name the best. He's light-hearted, sweet and easy going, all the things that come to mind when you hear the name Cooper.

Cooper can often be heard asking, 'Why aren't you smiling at me?' He loves positive reinforcement and can't bear to think that someone could possibly be upset with him.
Cooper also often says things like, 'You're my best mommy in the whole wide world.' And he's so genuine, you can just tell he truly means it! That kid can melt my heart with a smile.

Cooper already has so many 'girlfriends' and loves all of them! He's really going to be a heart breaker, and is completely oblivious to it. To him, he's just a good friend. He already has mom a little worried!

Cooper, happy fourth birthday! You are so loved and have been such a wonderful blessing to our family. God knew what He was doing when He brought you into our lives!
