Happy 5th Birthday my darling boy

To my little, well not so little anymore Cooper Scooper.
I still can't comprehend that you're already five. It's been such a pleasure watching you grow in to the gorgeous young man that you are today.
This time 5 years ago I remember vividly laying in bed in the hospital just staring at you. All the visitors had left for the night and there was no way I was sleeping. I was exhausted because I hadn't slept the night before but I couldn't possibly close my eyes as they were fixated on this gorgeous bundle of joy that I had brought in to this world. I still had so much adrenaline pumping through my body and I remember laying there studying your delicate little face. I was in awe at creating such a perfect little baby. How could you be mine? What did I do to deserve such perfection. I was so in love from the moment our eyes locked after they laid you on my chest. A love that I never knew existed. You still make my heart race and skip a beat with pride. Just like this afternoon watch you doing your show and tell. And watching you blow out your candles on the cupcakes I brought in for you to share with your school friends and how you made sure everyone in the class had theirs before you took yours. And then tonight when you came home from footy Mummy's heart melted when I found out you'd got an award for great team spirit on only your second time playing football. Boy am I proud of you kiddo.

I love you to the moon and back a trillion times buddy.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are grey. You'll never no dear how much I love you..........

I just wanted to share some photos of my big 5 year olds day.

His stash of goodies all set up this morning. You should have seen his face when he saw his guitar, priceless.

Still half asleep but rocking it out. Excuse the dodgy iPhone photos.

He wanted to take it for show & tell

Cupcakes for school

All ready for footy in his new boots that Daddy bought for him

Ready to head out for dinner..... my boys just melt me.

  1. Yep, you summed it up perfectly for me... "my boys just melt me". I couldn't agree more. Your bond with Cooper is heart warming Beck. Well done to you for 5 years of motherhood... it is a massive achievement in itself :o)
    P.S. Cooper is a gorgeous birthday boy and those cakes look superb!

  2. A heart warming post, and they are soooo cute. After having my kids I now believe that amazing things can happen to me and I'm worthy of it. ( that was very deep without the aid of a couple of reds).
    Have a great day,

  3. Haha Sarah a couple of reds would be nice right now. I'm sure it is after 3pm some where in the world.
    Julie- Don't get too excited about the cupcakes they're not the ones I made. As it turned out I was really off yesterday so I totally cheated and got them from Woolies and just swapped the fondant flowers for the tractor toppers. I'll post a photo of the ones ive made on the weekend as I'll use them for his party.


Please leave me some loving....
