When we became parents, we were buried in the fog of newborn-hood. We didn't spend much time looking beyond infancy, but even if we did, would we really have imagined just how amazing our Collin Cooper would be as a 5-year-old?
The changes seem less drastic because we watch him day-by-day, but seriously. Look at his little just-turned-4 baby face!
This year has been a blast! Kiddo is hilarious and always up to something fun. Here are some favorite pictures from the year...
Collin has been desperately wanting to play mailman, and he finally came up with the perfect plan. He made a sweet little card decorated with flowers for our next door neighbor, Miss Janet, put it in his "mail bag," and then walked next door all by himself to deliver it.
The next day, we were surprised to see a snowman in our backyard. The snowman was holding a stick with a sign attached: "Dear Collin, Thank you for the flowers! Your friend, Snowman"
