Well, a lot has happened since I last wrote. I always put off writting so that I could add pictures, but oh well. The title of this blog is no longer fitting as we are not in Iowa any more. It seems strange to be back and living with my parents, but we are so grateful to them for letting us come and live here. We sure do miss Iowa and our friends out there. Things have been good since we came back. Cooper is really enjoying having around family, (or more people to enjoy him as he likes being the center of attention). He is growing so fast, I can't believe that he is one year old already. It makes me realize how fast time has gone and how fast it will continue to go. Well, it isn't much, but here is a small update.

Well, I am a little behind on my posts, but here we go. This is back in November when we finalized the adoption. He was so cute and he did such a good job. He jabbered while we were waiting for the judge, but once he got there, Cooper just got really quiet and he sat and listened the whole time. I have said it since we got him, but he is our little angel baby.

This was Coopers first experience with any type of camping. Even though we didn't spend the night, we did have fun around a camp fire. He did really good and I think he liked it.

Just cute pics of Cooper

Sucking his thumb! He just loves that thumb. So cute now, but I think I might hate it later.


Youngmans come to visit


MeeMaw, Stacie, and Lexi and Abbie came to visit us (a few weeks ago, I'm a little late!) It was a lot of fun to have them here, even if Stacie and her girls were only with us for one night, but it was so fun. We went to the park on night and we all had fun on the slides. Cooper had fun getting to know them. It was sure sad to see them go! Can't wait until Christmas time!!!

Jared had one of his first football games and this one was by our
apartment so we went and watched. It was Coopers first football
game. This was only the freshman playing so if it looks like there
is not many people there, there isn't. The man that took this
picture was laughing at me for wanting to take of picture with my baby, but he was really nice about it. Jared is just behind my right shoulder way in the back. It was pretty cold that night, but it was fun!
