Happy Birthday Coopy!

Well it's official:  Coopy Scoopy is one!  Most mother's get all sentimental and say things like "it goes by too fast" and "why can't they be babies forever?"  Want to know what I have to say?  "Thank God this kid is one!"  My adorable little friend was NOT an easy baby by any stretch of the imagination so I am happy to say au revoire to the infant phase and hello to toddlerhood.  Bring.  It.  On.

Last week we set off to NJ (in our new big boy car seat).  Yes, I know the new recommendation is that they stay rear facing until two.  I also know how distracting it is to drive with a baby screaming for 5 hours because he is sick at staring at the back of a seat.  So, think what you will - but that boy is facing forward.

The Scoops - blurry feet and all.
My new view of the back seat.
I had a few errands to run before Cooper's party on Saturday.  Balloons needed to be ordered, candy had to be purchased for the pinata that I forgot to actually use, and I was in desperate need of a haircut. I've lived in Rochester for five years and I still get my haircut in NJ.  Don't judge.

Here's the new 'do:

The bangs are back in town, much to the chagrin of my husband.
He likes to "see my face."
I like to hide my forehead lines.
My hair.
I win.
Cooper's party was a hippo theme:  hippo invites, favors, hats - you get the drift.  I had an adorable hippo shirt made for him by Designs by Too Too Cute Tutus.  It came out so cute!

And I couldn't believe that he actually wore his "fun to be one" hat.  How awesome is this kid?

Here's a peak at the decor:
Hippos, hippos, everywhere
One of the great things about going home is being able to visit with my family and friends:

When I'm back in Jerz, it feels like I never left.  We had a great time celebrating with all the people we love.  I think a good time was had by all!

Happy Birthday Cooper!  Mommy loves you!

  1. Cooper is so stinking cute! Glad you guys had a good birthday. I love the hippo theme b/c I love hippos. Always my favorite thing to photo at the zoo! :) The inside of your van looks just like mine, but you're younger, so you probably don't have as many stains on your floors as I do! Have a good week-
