Haydon was mesmerized watching tv a couple of days ago….
Our little chefs…
Cooper’s new love is cars. This is actually his first true word. When he says car he sounds like he is from Boston, which sounds so cute! He plays with cars about 70% of his day. He loves to roll them around the hallway and through the house. He even enjoys looking at books with cars and trucks. I just got a Baby Einstein DVD for him that is called “On The Go” and it has tons of vehicles on it, which he loves. To him all things with wheels are cars. He points out the window at trucks and says, “Car”. He points at the tractor in a book and says, “Car.”Cooper is also very into using his walker to get around the house. He is still not walking unassisted so his walker is mode of transportation unless he chooses to crawl.
I uploaded a 6 minute video of Cooper play with his cars and using his walker. It totally captures the stage that Cooper is currently in. Enjoy!
The last time we actually updated the photo albums page was when Cooper was 5 months old. Cooper is one week away from being 10 months old, so we finally sat down and uploaded some pictures of Cooper to the website to fill in the gap. There are three new albums: 6-7 Months, Our Cutie Pie (8 Months), and 8-9 Months.
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 at 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!
Hi Everyone, It’s me Cooper. This is my first blog post and mommy is helping me write it. I wanted to put a video up of my buddy Saber. Saber is a mini gray hound dog and he is my best friend. He makes me laugh and giggle really hard. When I am in a bad mood, Saber can always make me smile. I sometimes grab his skin too hard and mommy tells me to be “gentle”. I’m working on that! I am going to miss my buddy Saber when we move to Texas. I asked daddy and mommy if we could get a dog, they told me not yet. Boo!
Saber, I love you! Don’t ever forget me because I’ll never forget you!
So Cooper is really getting the hang of his jumperoo. He reminds me of Tigger from Winnie the Pooh jumping all about. Thought you might enjoy watching him get his jump on! Click on the link to the song too!
The wonderful thing about Tiggers
Is Tiggers are wonderful things.
Their tops are made out of rubber,
Their bottoms are made out of springs!
And they’re bouncy, trouncy,
fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!
But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers
Is I’m the only one!
I’m… the only one!
