Dear Cooper,

I started this blog when I found out that I was pregnant with you...I started it for myself so that I could document all of the feelings that would pop up within the next 9 months (little did I know that I would only make it to almost 8 months!). Your daddy and I had been through so much in the previous year and to tell you the truth I was very excited and very scared at the same time when we found out that we were going to have a baby. The excitement took over as the weeks progressed and as I got to watch you grow each week on the ultrasounds.

Now, I continue this blog for you. I have a real baby book for you but this is something that we can both look at while you grow...I've tried to put a lot of baby pictures on here along with different things going on with you. Mommy's memory isn't as great as it used to be so I wanted you to have something to look at and laugh at...And, when you're old enough and ready we can talk about all the things that happened with your sister and the journey that the three of us (you, me and daddy) took while you were snuggled inside of mommy...

Thank you for choosing me to be your mommy. Everyday is so much sweeter since you arrived! I love hearing your laugh as I walk down the hallway to your room and seeing your face light up as I get closer to your crib. As corny as it sounds, it is true what they say about the love that you have for your child...it is immediate and unconditional. You've given me purpose. You've given me a reason to wake up and to be a good person through my words and actions. I love you for everything that you are...

My love forever,
