Cooper @ Play

Today Chris and I decide to brake out the video camera and record Cooper playing (a week shy of 10 months old). He has change so much since we moved to Texas almost two months ago. He’s moving around now. Before we left, he was only rolling around. Now he is crawling. He is doing the army crawl all over his play floor. Today seemed to be a day when crawling really seemed to become second nature for him because he has been moving all over the floor today with ease. He is really good at pulling himself up to the seated position from laying down. He started to do this the week he turned 9 months old. He is still not pulling himself up to standing yet, but he tries daily, so I think he’s close to doing it.

Cooper has also learned the meaning of the word “no”. As you can see in the video, we had to tell Cooper “no” on several occasions not to pull up on the foam floor tiles. We are trying to train him to not pull up on them. He is getting better atΒ  listening to our discipline. He still tests us and will try to repeat the action, but a stern “no” usually will do the trick!

Cooper is really starting to babble a ton. He babbles a little on this video, but I will try and get a better video up soon to show him babbling some more. Currently he can say only variations of the sounds m, b, n, w (with all vowel sounds attached). He even tries to imitate Chris barking like a dog by saying, “na, na, na”.

Cooper has some favorite toys: his large green ball (shown in video), wooden kitchen spoons, plastic storage containers, sunglasses, pop-up toy, small boxes with small items in them, kick gym, moving boxes, leap frog activity table, and any toy that lights up and makes music. He still loves Baby Einstein Videos too!

Hope you Enjoy the Video!

    So much fun! And it just gets better as they get older. πŸ™‚ I think right now is my favorite age! πŸ˜‰ But I say that about almost every age.

    Funny Aubrey, Cooper was in such a funk for three weeks, then suddenly yesterday its like he woke up a different child. We had a blast with him yesterday. I am loving this age! But I am sure like you said, ever stage brings something fun πŸ™‚

    I just LOVED THIS VIDEO!!! I laughed and laughed at Cooper’s response to the command, “No;” it reminded me so much of Lee. Isn’t it amazing how much they can understand at 10 MONTHS??!!!

    Thanks for sharing the list of toys; I think I needed some new inspiration for playthings for Lee. I am particularly interested in getting a pop-up toy for him. I’ve been keeping notes of things I want to get Lee and pricing certain items at thrift stores. I prefer some things new, but certain toys can be sterilized and are irresistably CHEAP when second-hand! πŸ˜€
