Giving Thanks

I have a lot to be thankful for. Especially this year. I'm not going to lie - those newborn days we're brutal. Alex and I questioned our sanity a lot, but Cooper's happy little smile always made it all worth it. Even if we were running on four hours of sleep (most of the time less).

This year has been truly eye-opening and filled with so many things that I am beyond thankful for. I am incredibly thankful for my husband - he has always been and continues to be a light in the dark. He keeps me steady even when I feel like my whole world is off kilter. And for our son, a child we wanted so badly, you were born healthy and you are the most easy going and happiest baby that I have ever known. You have given your dada and I purpose - we love you more than anything in this world.

Outside of the normal things like health and love - I'm also thankful for a family that cares so deeply for us. From my mother watching Cooper while we're at work, to once a week sleepovers from my mother-in-law for the first three months of Cooper's life, to a best friend that I can always count on. I hate the word "blessed" and the word "lucky" seems cheesy, but the life I have makes me feel both of those things - down to my very core.

Wishing you all a lovely thanksgiving - from my family to yours.

Cooper's First Halloween

Our sweet little hedgehog and also The Coon ;) Cooper was SO cute in his little hedgehog costume that I wish it was acceptable for him to wear it every day. Maybe I can get away with a Christmas hedgehog? Hahaha. Alex also had a great idea to make him into The Coon and I think it turned out perfectly.

Cooper - Eight Months

Little love, you're growing so fast. The most exciting thing about you turning eight months is that you've graduated to only wearing your boots and bar at naps and nighttime! Trick or treat smell your feet indeed! You're so close to crawling and I swear the other day you moved from your tummy to a seated position.

Cooper and the Pumpkins

This month has been filled with all things Fall. A trip to Trader Joe's for yummy Fall food, scary movies, Halloween playlists, and decorating. Yesterday we went to select a few pumpkins for our front door AND to take a few photos of Cooper enjoying a sea of pumpkins for the first time. He was such a trooper - not a single cry - and he looked adorable with all the pumpkins and his little skeleton bear. I can't wait until Halloween when he gets to wear his cute hedgehog costume! Don't worry - I'll be sure to share photos afterward.
