My little boy is...

I know I say it over and over, but Cooper is growing up and changing right before my eyes!  It is amazing to see the interaction between him and Caroline and what a little person he has become! I just LOVE it!  He is full of smiles and giggles and has started laughing at everything his sister does.  He started walking at 16 1/2 months and is definitely making up for lost time by now RUNNING!  His favorite thing to do is crawl up on the coffee table and dance as he watches Mickey Mouse.  I know I really should get mad at him and make him get down, but his little smile shows such accomplishment and he really is so proud of himself.  And besides, he's only fallen once...  :)
a typical day at our house...

We had his 18 month check up a couple weeks ago and here is where he stands:
weight: 27.5 lbs  (69th percentile)
height: 33 inches  (68th percentile)
head circumference: 50.5 cm  (97th percentile)

Cooper still is on the bigger side and the doctor was still a little worried about his head size, but we had everything checked out and he is completely fine!  It is just needed to hold all of his smarts!!

In about the last month, Cooper has really started mimicking sounds and tones.  He LOVES calling out for DaDa every time he sees his picture or walks in the door.  

MaMa, DaDa, Uh Oh, Hi, Bye, Dog, Beca, Cheese
Still Signs Please, Thank you and More

Moo = cow, Ah Ah = Monkey, Meeeow = Cat,  Neigh = Horse
Bunnies = Hop, Kangaroos = Jump

He can also point to just about every part of his body:
eyes, ears, nose, mouth, tongue, teeth, hair, fingers, toes, feet, hands, elbows, his favorite - belly button...

Mickey Mouse, Balls of ALL kinds, Cars, Superhero Figurines, Ring around the Rosies, Crawling on Mom & Dad's Bed, Llama Llama Red Pajama

The second he is hungry or thirsty, running errands and occasionally bath time

We couldn't imagine life with out our Super Cooper!  He is still a very smiley and content little boy, however he knows how to scream when he wants something!  He is definitely our tantrum thrower and makes it known when we are out and about running errands!  But he is still cautious as ever and takes a little time to warm up to situations.  He will stay at the top of the playground just thinking about sliding down. Then he sits down and takes quite awhile. Sometimes he turns around and goes back and then occasionally he'll slide down on his stomach, feet first. 

Happy 18 Months my little man!
