Children's Center Changes...

Friday was Noah's last day ever at the BSU Children's Center. It was much more emotional for me than for him! He started at the Children's Center when he was 2 1/2. I have loved having him there. He has had great teachers and has made wonderful friends.

His favorite teacher has been Ms. Judy.
She is awesome! (Fingers crossed she will still be there when Cooper is in the pre-school class!) I am so grateful for the wonderful experiences Noah has had while at the Children's Center. I hope that he enjoys kindergarten as much as he has enjoyed pre-school!

Friday was also Cooper's last day with his loop teacher Ms. Terri.

I am so sad for Cooper to be leaving the loop. Leslie and Terri have been wonderful teachers. Cooper first met them when he was 4 days old, although he didn't officially start at the center until he was 10 months old. Cooper has had a wonderful experience growing and learning in the loop program. I feel so thankful for the wonderful experiences Cooper has had. Luckily, Cooper will just be down the hall from Leslie and Terri so he will get to visit every now and then! I hope he enjoys the transition classroom as much as he has enjoyed the loop!

Backyard Water Fun!

Noah LOVES the water. He doesn't care how cold it is. The sprinklers are his best friend in the summer! A month or so ago we bought a slip-n-slide. Noah thinks it ROCKS! Cooper, on the other hand, prefers just to walk around the sides of it and look at it! He is not a huge fan of cold water. If he is in control and can decide when and how he gets in, he's okay. He does not like to be splashed or sprayed! He loves to do the spraying though! Watch out if Coop gets a hold of the hose! Here are a few pics from their backyard water fun the other night!

My baby is 3!

I can't believe that Cooper is 3! It has been a whirl wind three years. Cooper has blessed our family more than I could have ever imagined. He is a ball of energy but has the most loving heart. I am so proud to be his mom!

Everyone who knows Cooper knows that he is OBSESSED with Toy Story. I mean OBSESSED. He loves all things Buzz or Woody related. So, of course, we had to have a Toy Story theme for his birthday.

He doesn't get to have a friend party until next year so we invited the family to Chuck E. Cheese to celebrate. Mmmm...nothing screams kids birthday like cardboard pizza and video games! :) The kiddos had a great time! Noah, Cooper, Dylan, Mya and Gianna enjoyed all the games and activities.
