Last week, we celebrated another milestone. Cooper turned 5! How did we get to 5 so quickly? While I know it wasn’t just yesterday that he was a baby, but it seems like this was just yesterday. And also this!
To ring in the completion of Cooper’s 5th year, we celebrated with a Lego pirate cake. Of course I baked the cake and spread the blue “water” buttercream. I even had the idea of using some of Cooper’s leftover school cupcakes to make the sand. But then Jeremy took over. A
man boy with his Legos – they really are a multi-generational toy and will never go out of style.
We also Skyped with family, opened presents, and gave Cooper a lot of attention. So much so, that by the end of the weekend he was crying, “I just can’t wait a whole other year for my next birthday!”
He received a lot more Legos, Ninjago stuff, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and more from family and friends. His big presents from us, though, were tickets to a Providence Bruins hockey game and a Lego table. Both were big hits!
He looks so grown up in these pictures. I am in awe of the boy he is becoming. He is one of the sweetest kids I know. He loves so much. When he is passionate about something, he goes in whole-heartedly – seriously, the kid could spend hours looking at Lego instruction manuals or Ninjago figurine pictures. \ He
mostly usually sometimes follows directions. He does well in school. And best of all, he makes us all laugh. Ok, so I’m just bragging too much. I’ll stop. Except for this one last picture….
