Happy 2nd birthday!!

Here is story of our "wild man" Coop.

He just turned 2 a couple of weeks ago and he had a great blues clues birthday party. The ice cream cake turned out wonderful and went well with my paw print cupcakes.

I asked my hubby to be the one to help him open his gifts and I would take pictures. I am always the one taking pictures.

I was very glad to have my husband help Cooper with the presents because I knew that if it were me with that job then I would rush him through it. I am always in a hurry to get things done yesterday, to move on to the next thing, and I am constantly telling my kids to GO..Go..Go! I sound like a military sargeant. It really is ridiculous. Just another thing to work on, I guess. :)

Anyway, as it was, Kyle allowed him time to enjoy each gift after he opened it and that is just what he did. He had a ball!

After everyone was gone I started looking through the pictures on our digital camera and realized that there was not one of me with my son on his 2nd birthday. I was so sad.

I thought I'll just have Kyle take a couple of us real quick. Then it dawned on me that we had our p.j.'s on already. This put me further into my depession over the situation.

In 20 years Cooper is not going to care that there is no picture of him with me on his birthday. As for me, you better believe I need a picture. :)

It was about 5 days later and there were still 3 balloons floating. So, I got myself and Coop dressed in the same clothes we had on for his b-day and Justin took a couple of pictures of us.

AAAHHHH!! I feel better!
