Mr. Independent

Cooper is becoming more and more independent every day. He is able to do a lot more. He can truly hold a bottle all on his own now and feed himself. It takes him a while to finish feeding himself, but he can do it. He still requests me give him his bottle most of the time, but there are times when he flat out will not let me give him his bottle. He has to do it– Well, okay, Mr. Independent, have it your way!


More toes please!

Here is a recent video of Cooper enjoying his toes again! If Cooper could talk, I think he would say, “more toes please!”

I have also posted a blog about Alternate Vaccine Schedues on my other blog. Check it out!


Spring

We took Cooper for a stroller walk this evening right before his bedtime. I took along the camera and decided to take some pictures of the trees in bloom. I was not anticipating taking any pictures of Cooper, but as we passed by the green field, I thought to myself- what a great photo op! Happy Spring!


Got Toys???


Babble

Cooper is starting to experiment with sounds. The first video is of Cooper’s latest experiments with his voice and lips. The second video is of Cooper saying “mom”. He did this for the first time this evening and I was completely in shock. Who knows if he really has any idea what he is really saying…it is still pretty cool if you ask me!


If all the raindrops…

When I was a girl scout, I learned this song called “If all the Raindrops”. It was a cute little song, which reminded me of how Cooper feels about green beans. Since today is Saint Patrick’s Day, what better way to celebrate than to eat something green!

If All the Raindrops

If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops,
Oh what a wonderful world it would be.
I would stand outside with my mouth open wide.
(Aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah,)
If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gumdrops,
Oh what a wonderful world it would be.

If all the snowflakes were Hershey bars and milk shakes,
Oh what a wonderful world it would be.
I would stand outside with my mouth open wide.
(Aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah,)
If all the snowflakes were Hershey bars and milk shakes,
Oh what a wonderful world it would be.

If all the hailstones were M&Ms and sugar cones,
Oh what a wonderful world it would be.
I would stand outside with my mouth open wide.
(Aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah,)
If all the hailstones were M&Ms and sugar cones,
Oh what a wonderful world it would be.

If all the sleet were green beans and liver meat,
Oh what a terrible world it would be.
I would stand outside with my mouth shut tight.
(Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm,)
If all the sleet were green beans and liver meat,
Oh what a terrible world it would be.


“Sand”wich

On our most recent trip to Florida, we took Cooper to the beach. Cooper discovered sand for the first time. We captured some video of him having a “sand”wich…enjoy!


Cooper rolled over

Yesterday, Wednesday 2/25/009, Cooper finally decided to roll over. The first time he rolled over was kind of funny. I had him on his belly and turned on his favorite DVD- Baby Einstien. He was reaching his neck up to watch the TV when all of a sudden he start to lean and, before you knew it, he landed on his back. He had the most surprised look on his face, like “how in the world did I end up on my back.” Oh I wish I could have captured his facial expression with the video camera. I tried several times after he rolled over the first time to get him to do it again, but he would not do it. I guess Cooper was saving his stardom for his daddy. Because once Chris got home, there was no stopping him. Cooper really got the hang of rolling over and did it with ease. Chris and I were so excited- as you can tell on the video clip. It is amazing how excited you get over the little developmental milestones your child achieves.


Say Hi

I was video taping Cooper yesterday babbling. I swear one of his babbles sounded just like he said hi. Thought you all might enjoy this!


Sneeze!

This is my first attempt at putting a video on our website. I have to down load more recent videos of Cooper, but for now here is my first addition. When Cooper was a newborn his sneezes were so cute. Here is Cooper sneezing when he was a day old. I cannot believe how much he has grown and changed since then.
