Coop is One - 03.27.2014...

Coop tuned one just a few short weeks ago.  We already had his party, but I still wanted to make his actual birthday special.  Mike cooked a special breakfast, while the big boys and I setup a few decorations...

 
 
These boys were PUMPED...Tracks face (amazing)... 
 
Around 9a, we ALL marched into Coops room and woke up our sweet one year old.  He has the best sleepy eyes and can be counted as the easiest and least grouchy Hummel to wake from slumber... 

 
The big boys greeted him with a lot of violent crib shakes and giant punching balloons.  Any other child might be terrified with all the action, but not this steady 3rd born... 
 
All of the boys looking at the camera AND smiling...a birthday MIRACLE... 
 
Celebrating with Coops favorite food...nothing says we love you like a mound of eggs in place of a cake. 
 
This is a sweet face I want to remember forever (that's what pictures are for right?...although, its just not the same as locking eyes with this guy).  Cooper has these kind eyes and this peaceful spirit about him.  He is a joyful, peaceful and easy baby (I mean he is still a baby...enter hard work stage right...).  This babe loves his brothers and doesn't just tolerate them, but desperately wants to be part of the tribe.  Praying they will be best friends. 

Of course Track was HAPPY to blow out the candle for Coop...
 
Typical breakfast craziness... seriously, this is what breakfast at our house is like EVERY day, sans d├ęcor.

 
Who knew the party hats would be such a big hit...

Coop- I knew from the moment I got pregnant with you that you were a Divine gift.  You have been loved deeply and easily named our family peacemaker.  My guess is that you will fold right in with your brothers without hesitation.  You are easy going and flexible (two things I need constant refining for).  You are always good for a smile or laugh.  You are like a strong tower...sturdy, sturdy, sturdy.  When you started standing it was immediate and in the middle of the floor.  You have just started walking this week and it won't be long until it is a full run.  I can't get over what a sweet baby you are.  The Lord has blessed us with you.
 
Happy Birthday Sweet Cooper Seth
