COOPER

As I mentioned... everyhing changed June 2010. The day we found out we were going to be parents.
There are truly not a lot of ways or words that I know how to express what it means for me to be a mom to this little girl that we now have. Pictures say a lot for me, so here is a peak at our joyful journey.

We began to get into full blown "prepare for baby mode" and we had so much fun with it! Decorating her nursery, shopping, registering, going to showers, painting, assembling cribs....all the works.
 
The best days were when we actually got to see her....
 

And then she came....

her very FIRST picture :)
 

And she has been an incredible blessing and force of nature in our lives ever since.

Additions...

A short and sweet introduction to our lil' family...

We decided to get a puppy when hubby returned from Africa on deployment and we were settled into our new digs in Mississippi. So we went shelter shopping...and stumbled upon this lil guy...

(The photo bomber kitty in the background is Harlem...she came with me as part of a package deal when hubby and I got married.)

We brought said puppy home and pretty quickly settled on "Max" and it fits him perfectly. He's a Rott mix (obviously). He settled in quite nicely. :)


When Max was almost a year old we (I) brought home a puppy, "Teagan", from the vet I was working at to foster it for a friend of ours for a bit. We (I) grew pretty attached to her and was sad to see her go after 3 months.
 
Max defintely grew attached to her and when we came home from Texas without her, he was a different dog......so we got him a friend! :)
I had always wanted a great dane and had been around several because of my job. I was somehow able to convince hubby that it would be a brilliant idea.
 
And thus, Evangeline entered into our lives, home and ultimately our hearts.

She and Max became fast friends and partners in crime. Lots and lots of crimes. :)


 
We had our sweet family of furry kiddos, until one day in June 2010...

Still Here....

I'm still here....for the one person in Alaska that happened to stumble across this lonely little blog and took an interest in my average life.

Work has been busy and family has been busy. Holidays are coming up, and I will start posting new things soon I promise!
