Back to Nature

I just can't help but giggle when I see a baby's butt.  These two love to be naked and being naked and outside is even better.  Last night, as I was getting them ready for a bath, Parker snuck out onto the back deck and Cooper quickly followed.

They both just laughed and laughed.  It was such a fun moment to be able to just sit back and watch them at play.  They are both still so innocent and pure of heart.  The simplest things really make them happy.  I hope that I can maintain this well into their adult lives.

Our lives are so full at times, that it's nice to be able to sit back at times like this and just appreciate the world around you, just soak it in and enjoy the moment at hand.

Cooper is 11 Months

Cooper is creeping toward being 1.  The last 11 months have just flown by and he is getting so very big! He still only has 6 teeth but he does big things with them.  He tends to bit toes and shoulders and then smiles.  It's hard not to laugh. He is just days away from walking but a bit weary of taking his first few steps.

Everything he does is big.  He eats big, he laughs big and he smiles big.  This kid has a heart of gold.  He finds pure joy in the simplest of things and just watching him interact with the world around him keeps my heart warm.

I can't wait to watch him grow and see the little boy that is will soon become. I could not be prouder of my little man.
