The sweetest little face

Last year Cooper wasn't 2 yet and while he did enjoy Christmas he wasn't really old enough to understand.  And his parents were living in a camper on their property and their house wasn't quite finished (they moved in February), but this year our little guy is excited about presents and Santa and asking Santa for a police "dino truck" aka "monster truck" and firetruck "dino truck".  And Grammy is super excited about showing up to watch him have Christmas morning (even though it will be Christmas eve morning) because my firefighter/medic son in law will be working on Christmas unless baby MJ decides to arrive early.  I am also super excited to meet grandson #2 who will arrive soon.  No later than January 4th, but potentially sooner.  My daughter is again also under the care of a cardiologist while expecting. Today will be her last day of work until she goes back after maternity leave. And she probably shouldn't be working today, but she's very dedicated to her co-workers and was determined to give them as much notice as possible so her doctor agreed she could work this weekend, but then no more.

As you can see Cooper really liked Santa and was excited to talk to him.  He's very chatty for a 2 year old.

Hello Tammy - Cooper is starting to look pretty grown-up as he approaches birthday number 3 and the arrival of his new sibling.

Hi Tammy,  This is such an exciting time of year, especially for young ones.  It sounds like you'll be very busy helping out with Grandson number 2 soon.  Great picture of Cooper and Santa.

Tammy Lankford,

I'm very excited about that busy too.

Hi Tammy Lankford, love the picture. I am looking forward to our grandson's first Christmas.

Tammy Lankford,

Cooper's first Christmas was chaos, his family moved on December 20th and closed on the house they were selling on the 21st.  Last year camper Christmas, this year I'm really looking forward to it.

Tammy- I am so excited for you!!!  Cannot wait to see photos of Grandson #2 after he is born. Tell your daughter to take care of herself.

Tammy Lankford,

she had to go into work today for "paperwork" for leave, but hopefully some rest soon.  I need to help her wrap some gifts.

Good morning, Tammy... what a cutie Cooper is. That's a photo with Santa I know you'll treasure forever. Wishing all the best to your daughter as she awaits the birth of your second grandson. (We just celebrated the birth of our first great-grandchild, a girl -- but long distance, sad to say.)

Tammy Lankford,

I am so excited about this baby and can't imagine being long distance.  I'm upset that I can't go to the hospital though.

That indeed is a very sweet face and I love the way he looks at Santa.  I am sure that he looks at you that way too!

OMG, that Coop is ADORABLE! He's sitting like such a big boy - and that smile! I know you can't wait for that second one, Tammy. I'm still praying for my first! LOL

I know you can't wait to be able to hug Abigail again and enjoy some time together before #2 arrives.

Tammy Lankford,

He's become such a talker.  This morning on the phone he told me he had a job to do.  He had to "wash dirty lightening mcqueen"

Interesting conversation there, Tammy! LOL He's such a cutie pie!

Tammy Lankford, all the joys of childhood come flooding back when I see Cooper's photographs. That photo of him with Santa Clause is absolutely precious! Well, I'm late to your December Christmas Party. I'm curious if Cooper has a new brother yet or are you still waiting? I pray all is well with your daugher, son-in-law, Cooper, Donald, youreself, and the new addition to your family.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  I've missed a little time myself.  Life has given us a few tough weeks in my family.  But hopefully I will be showing off a photo of the little nugget real soon.

Tammy Lankford, the new baby is an angel and those photos you included on your blog post are sentimentally a beautiful testament to the miracle of birth. Talk about a modern day version of story written for Little house on the Prairie! I wrote more on your newest post and yes! You were missed!!!

I came back to look at this one not remembering that I had already commented but the little one is quite adorable, I must say, still. :)
