Wow!! It’s been exactly one year ago today that we made it through that nerve racking day in court to officially become Coopers’ parents.
The time has flown by. Being thrust into the position of being a dad has been very rewarding for me. I couldn’t have asked for a better son. The adjustment for Cooper has also gone well. Tanya and I would like to thank all of our family and friends for making the transition go so smoothly. Going from just a little dog to having an energetic toddler with endless energy is quite a makeover.
Cooper has had an exciting year. He has grown a lot and experienced a lot. Physically in the last six months alone he’s grown 8.9 centimeters and gained 4 lbs. His vocabulary is also increasing daily. We are still however working on getting him to say his name properly. When he says Cooper it sounds like poo poo, Which can be pretty interesting/funny in front of strangers.
He, like his dad, is a boy who loves to have fun and can have fun in many different ways whether it be spending time with his cousins and extended family or just spending time by himself or following mom around. He has a great sense of humor but can be mischievous at times. The days seem to never be long enough for him. Or short enough for his parents 😉 The pics below are just some of the highlights of the past year. (Click on the picture to get a larger view)
