Lots of first things happening in the last week or so.
One of Cooper's favorite things to do is "cleaning". He loves the sweeper, Dyson, broom, or anything else he can find. Hopefully, this behavior will continue for a very long time.
January 20, 2009: I took Cooper in to see the doctor before his tubes went in last week. He waved bye bye to the nurses when I started walking away. Maybe he wanted to be nice to them for once not giving him a shot.
January 21, 2009: Cooper was sitting on the floor playing that night. John walked in the back door. Cooper looked up at him, and said "Dada." The first time, unprompted and unscripted.
January 22, 2009: Cooper measured at 33" tall today. That puts him at just below the 100th percentile. That would make him the normal size of a 21 month old. He sooo tall.
January 25, 2009: Aunt K came over and put her keys on the coffee table. The little guy walked right over to them, picked them up, and then took them right to the door knob. He watches everything.
January 28, 2009: Not really sure what possessed him to crawl over the supports of the chair. Notice that just his hand is touching.
January 30, 2009: He was very talkative this morning. Saying dog and pointing to the dogs on the way to the car. He kept saying shew in the car. I was a little slow and realized he meant shoe when he had hold of this shoe. He even responded correctly when I asked him where his other one was.
I decided to push it a little more to see what he would do. I asked him where his nose was, and he actually pointed to his nose. He giggled all the way into daycare pointing at his nose.
He is an amazing little guy.
