Seven.

Seven. Wow. I cannot describe how I feel about Cooper turning 7 months old. For some reason...this mark makes it seem like it is going by TOO fast. Six didn't feel like this. Seven feels so....old! Time goes by...FAST! I don't think you truly experience this until you are a parent.

At 7 months, Cooper is thriving. Here is what he is up to:

  • Has 2 bottom teeth (broke thru about a week and a half ago)
  • Probably weighs about 16 or 17 lbs.
  • Crawling...everywhere! He is fast! His favorite thing he is not suppose to have is Jack's water and food bowl.
  • Happy Happy baby! Smiling and laughing a lot!
  • Very mischievous and curious. His little personality is coming out.
  • Everything he touches goes in his mouth.
  • Loves it when his daddy plays with him.
  • Starting to cry when mommy walks away...oh no!
  • Loves to grab at Jack's paws and ears. Jack doesn't seem to mind.
  • Eats all types of baby food...makes a HUGE mess.
  • He's a bit of a wild buck sometimes. He is very active..usually wants to be down on the ground exploring.
  • He's a fighter...hard to put to sleep...but once he gives up...he's out!
  • Still a cat-napper..usually a few 30 minute naps a day if we are lucky!
  • Hates his clothes being changed.
  • Goes to bed around 7...sometimes will wake up a few times...sometimes not. Sometimes will wake up A LOT! Likes to wake us up at 5:30...rearing and ready to go! (see below)
  • He will wear you out! (tip: when Coop goes to sleep, you go to sleep!)

Pictures to come...my camera is in his room and I don't want to wake him.

See the last tip?? Goodnight! :)
