Cooper turns 1!

Can't believe the kid is already one, but its here and gone. We had our first (of several) birthday celebrations for Cooper yesterday. Auntie Sarah, who is 9 months pregnant herself and scheduled for a C Section on Thursday, cooked Cooper his very own strawberry cake lined with his favorite blueberries. Sarah, Jill, Cooper and I went to Boulder and had a nice dinner at the West End, then headed back to let Cooper tear into his cake.

Where do I start?

He was very tentative at first, eating one blueberry at a time

Then he figured out the icing was pretty good

Its easy to see where he gets his good looks...from his Mother.

Happy birthday to Cooper from the Brandts!
Is Cooper going through a growth spurt? He looks tall and lanky in the birthday cake pictures, as if some of his baby fat is falling off.

He is definitely growing a lot. The kid eats a ton, but I agree he does seem to be thinning up a bit.
