Trey Cooper Through The Year

It seemed like we had been waiting for him for some time. There were a couple of different times earlier in the month when we were sure that our youngest was going to give birth to baby #3 at any moment. But as it turned out, we were just lucky to have him join us in time to be home for Christmas.

All the waiting turned out well though because he was such a beautiful robust baby.

And even though his mother had waited for him for so long, she didn't seem mad at him at all. In fact she seemed quite taken with him and very pleased with herself and him.

Trey was always an alert baby who liked to look at colorful objects around him from the time he was about a week old.

Here he is looking at one of his all-time favorite colorful objects:

He was a friendly baby that didn't seem to mind us taking endless pictures of him.

And he started smiling early and never quit:

He's always been an enthusiastic eater and is even willing to help feed himself if only given the chance.

And speaking of feeding himself, he makes his mom proud when he embraces sugary treats like donuts so happily. Like mother like son.

Although I try to have a wide variety of toys on hand for grandchildren of all ages, Trey likes more cerebral endeavors like paper handling (or eating).

He's a wonderful baby who is turning into a wonderful boy. At Thanksgiving he was suddenly standing around nonchalantly and reaching everything that caught his fancy.

He's changing everyday and I can't wait until they come to town in a few days to celebrate Christmas with us. In the meantime, Happy Birthday, Trey. I hope you and your family have a wonderful time celebrating your first birthday today.


  1. Happy Birthday, Trey! What a beautiful, smiley boy. :-)

    I hope you and your family have a fabulous Christmas!

  2. I posted a comment on here and I have no idea where it went. What I said was I can't believe Trey is already a year old. I remember you and Beth being on baby watch to be there for the birth. Trey sure is a cutie. Happy Birthday little man!

  3. Happy Birthday, Trey! He really has always been the best laugher/smiler. I love the pictures from when he was younger and it looks like he is laughing SO HARD! He somehow seems to get cuter and cuter, too. How is that even possible???


Gentle, strong, kind or true, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
Short or long, it's up to you, your comments and thoughts really make my day!
