F-I-V-E M-O-N-T-H-S old.

Cooper Wyatt, you are five months old today!
And mommy is um, five days late posting this.

You learned how to give "high five" this month. Daddy is convinced that Mommy is just making that one up, but we know better than that.
You count your toes one by one as you stretch them all the way up to your little mouth. One-two-three-four-five!
You graduated from five ounces every three hours. You're a big boy now and take six ounces every 3-4 hours.

Five. The number of nights you have stayed up ALL. NIGHT. LONG. Hoo. Hoo. Night owl, that's you.

Your top five fav foods are: rice, oatmeal, peas, bananas, and apples. Yum yum. It takes you approximately five minutes to crush a meal. And five more to burp like a grown man.

If we were asked to tell you five things that we want you to write on your heart for ever and ever, they would be:

One. You have a God in heaven who loves you more than you will ever know.
"And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God." Ephesians 3:17-19

Two. You are an absolute BLESSING to your Mommy and Daddy. You bring us great joy.

"And this is the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24

Three. You make every single day five-zillion times sweeter. Five-zillion times more fun. Five-zillion times sillier. Five-zillion times more fabulous.

"Rejoice in the Lord always. And again, I say Rejoice!" Phillipians 4:4

Four. There is a plan for your life so incredible that we just can't wait to watch it unfold. Day by day we see God's purpose revealed in you and day by day we thank Him for giving you to us.

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord." Jeremiah 29:11.

Five. You. are. loved. (To the moon and back. Oodles and oodles. Bookoodles).

"Out of all the people on the earth, God chose you to be his special, treasured possession." Deuteronomy 7:6

We love you Super Coop! Muah!
