Morgans 1st School Photos!

I've been so excited to get these pictures and post them on here! Morgans FIRST school photos! Of course, like any mother (i hope), I got both poses that the photographer sent my way. I'm sure if they would have sent 10 poses I would have found a way to get a package of each kind!

I have to be honest and say that I was nervous at first. We had tried getting pictures from the daycare center he was at, and even with two full days of trying - no pictures :(

At this school,  New Hope Christian Academy, there was only ONE day to take photos...all or nothing! So I asked, and was told that Morgan took pictures!! Yeah!! There was some hesitation (of course), but after Morgan got to see all the other kids get their pictures taken, he figured it out. And...this is what we got!

One full body shot where he sitting on the prop laughing hysterically. I swear I could hear him every time I look at this shot. I don't think he's breathing and I'm sure there was a 'snort' somewhere! heheh

The second shot is a face shot! Just look at it...HANDSOME!

I also got the 'class' photo, which had a twist. The school is still very small and slowly growing, so the principle thought instead of doing the traditional class photo, she gathered up all the students and teachers and took what she calls 'The Founding Fathers/Mothers' of New Hope! Cute yeah...

I can not keep saying just how well Morgan does in this school. All his 'so-called' asthma and allergies are GONE. hmmm...must have been that overcrowded school that must have been oh-not-so-clean. Whatever...I'm just glad he's better an happy and learning and talking and doing everything a healthy little baby boy should be doing.

Morgan Update

I have so much to share and have been doing a horrible job at staying connected.
Morgan is a future Picasso. His painting here shows his masterful skill with colors and paint brushes. Mommy feels his painting was the best out of all the others, but found that all the other kids were extremely talented! 

All the way up to Pre-K, kids were drawing a vase with sunflowers and I couldn't believe how well they all were. All the paintings were up for a small donation fee back to the school. I would gladly pay them whatever they want as we are so amazed with how much Morgan has developed with them. Most of his days (he is 2.5!) He comes running up to the door. I no longer have to carry him and he doesn't grab on to my leg for dear-life! He's so happy with saying 'By momma' and blowing me a kiss! My baby boy is growing so fast. I hope these days last forever!!!
He also made another little project for me. It's a little poem with his hand print in front. It made me cry. There are so many times I take for granted how little he really is, I expect him to fully understand whatever I say, and I have to take a step back and say 'Whoa...he's just a baby'.
Here's what the poem reads in case it isn't clear from the picture:

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls

But every day I'm growing --
I'll be grown some day
And all those tiny handprints
Will surely fade away

So here's a little handprint
Just so you can recall
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small

Isn't that sweet. I get all mushy with this kinda stuff. I can't help it. It's these little projects at school, that although I know weren't 'his' thoughts, I know the teachers are actually taking the time to teach him something and are having activities with him. (and YES, it's on the refrigerator!)

Other than that things are good in the Cook household. My sister-in-law will be making me a new auntie with baby#2, I will NOT be having baby#2, and that's a good thing!! lol


About Us

My photo
Las Vegas, NV, United States
We are a family of three no more, no less! Jon and I have know each other for 18 years now. Started with being really good friends and talking on the phone (well, me crying about the loser boyfriends I had), but Jon was always there. Providing me with the support and love I needed, weather I wanted it or not, was not the issue. We finally made our connection in 2004, courted for about three months, because really, there was only a very few things we DIDN'T know about each other. A year later, we were blessed to become pregnant and through the stress of the high-risk pregancy, we had a gorgeous baby boy. His name was already predetermined! 'Morgan' is Jon's moms maiden name, there is a running joke with the 'Morgans' due to their attitude. Alejandro was from my uncle's name 'Alejo' I've always liked that name and we wanted to have our son represent both sides of his heritage. PLUS my parents couldn't say Morgan for the longest, so Alejandro is what he is called by mommy's family, and Morgan is used for daddy's family. We wonder why our son is so confused most of the time, right?? We are a happy family! Nothing could be wanted more
