First Day of Kindergarten

Well, we made it through the first day of school & Cooper LOVED it! He has talked about it all afternoon & he can't wait to go back tomorrow.  It's safe to say that I was the only one who cried .. I just miss him like crazy when he's not at home :)
Y'all, I feel like I just took this picture of my sweet little 2 year old!!
And now he is so big!
I'm not sure who gave him permission to grow up but he is & fast!
Tuesday night at dinner I asked Cooper some fun little questions & thought I would share his answers with you ..

10. What are you most nervous about this year in kindergarten? Going to the lunchroom ..I don't know where I can sit.
11. What is your favorite movie? Monsters Inc

He was so excited this morning .. & of course Sis-Sis had to get in on a picture :)

I had to beg him to hold my hand .. after the picture was over he let it go & I could've cried right then & there but I didn't.  I actually didn't cry until I walked out of the school.
Oh my heart! I was fighting back the tears when Millie Jo hugged him & told him she loved him. She missed him so much today ... so much that she asked me every 20 minutes when he was coming home.  I love these 2 so much!!
.. & just like that my little 7lb 6oz baby is a 5 year old little boy in kindergarten. 
Mama's of little ones, enjoy each and every day with your babies because time sure does fly by! I'm looking forward to spending one-on-one time with Millie Jo during the week for the next couple of years because soon she will be going to school too!
Happy Friday Eve :)
