Birthday morning!

 Embarrassed because we are singing him Happy Birthday!

Love this....no more pictures, Mommy!

 We had to go to Cooper's soccer game!!!

Coop at 2 years!

Whitten turns TWO!!!

Happy birthday to our precious Whitten!  I could write a 1,000 page novel about how amazing you are...but I feel like that wouldn't even do it justice!  You are so much more than I ever could have dreamed!  You make my heart smile every time I see that sweet dimpled face!  Mommy, Daddy and Cooper are so blessed to have you in our lives and we all love you with every ounce of our being!

So what's up with Whitt at the age of 2?

-You are still very much a momma's boy and want me and only me when you are unhappy.  But you LOVE your Daddy because he is so silly!

-You are talking up a storm...and in complete sentences.  I love to hear your sweet voice.  Some of my favorites...."Mommy here" (whenever you see me),  Mommy, where are oooo? (insert anyone's name when you are looking for someone), When we put on your shirt and you can't see, you immediately say "Where are oooo?" and giggle.  You sing the abc song constantly.  We sing "You are my sunshine" together and it M-E-L-T-S me. You love to sing and motion Twinkle twinkle and Patty Cake.  

-You are still way obsessed with letters and can recognize all upper and lower and their sounds.  You are putting the beginning sound together with actual words.  You can count to 20!!!!!  You know all of your shapes and a lot of your colors.  

-You are finally calling Cooper by his name instead of "Poo-poo".  It sounds more like "Kipper", but it's there and it's so sweet when I hear you say, "Kipper, come on!!" when you are wanting him to come play with you

-Your favorite shows are Bubble Guppies, Team Umi Zoomi and Mickey Mouse. 

-You are finally a better eater.  Better as in better....but not great!

-You are perfect in every way!  We love you sweet, sweet, sweet boy!

Oh dear!  I have been informed by Cooper's new teacher that he is the resident Casanova of his 4 year old preschool class!!  I went to Open House last week, and while Mrs. Butler was telling the parents how blessed she is to have such a wonderful class of kids that all get along and have great personalities, she also threw in, "And we even have our resident Casanova, Cooper.  Cooper loves the ladies."  Um, I was slightly embarrassed.  How in the whole wide world does a 4 year old know about boyfriends and girlfriends and holding hands?  He is smitten with a little girl named Aubrey!  Mrs. Butler told me that one day when Price (Coop's buddy) stole Aubrey away, he went and grabbed Emily June's hand and paraded her around...I guess trying to make Aubrey jealous!  Seriously?!?!  I'm afraid we are going to have a lots of broken hearts over the coming years....most likely it's going to be Cooper's!

First soccer game

Oh my sweet boy is not really big on soccer!  He loves the idea of it,  just not the actual physical part of it!!  I have to say this doesn't completely surprise me!  He gets really excited at the beginning of the game and then tires out within the first quarter! He then stares off into la-la land letting the ball literally roll right by him!  However, one time he did get the ball and he dribbled it aaaalllll the way down the field....past the goal...waaay past the goal!  It was pretty funny!  And the fact that we were playing against the next World Cup champs didn't help!!!  I swear those boys have been playing since they were in the womb!   I think the final score was 51-1!!!!  Gotta love it!  But it was lots of fun and more than anything that's all that it needs to be at the ripe ole age of 4!  I'm just proud that there were no tears and that he didn't quit!!

      Before the game     

            Whitt wanted his picture taken, too! 

 Team huddle

 Action shots!!!!
 This is how he played the entire game...with his tongue hanging out!

And sweet Whitt!
