Aunties & Grannies...

As you may recall this past weekend we celebrated out littlest man's 1st Birthday!

The festivities began on Wednesday with an Auntie & Grannie party...where Coop was "man of the hour" admist a sea of ladies who adore him and love his mama.

Here are a few highlights from the evening:

Dressed to impress with his lil' bow tie and his itty bitty party hat!

It was a wonderful evening.
I am blessed to be loved by so many fabulous ladies.
