Newborn Photographs Sweet baby Cooper was a very high maintenance baby in the womb. Not that it was his fault really, but in this pregnancy, Tiffany, a.k.a. mom, was on bed rest for majority of the pregnancy. It was really early on that she had contractions that the hospital gave her medicine to stop as […]
