Ready, Set…

… oops.   It looks like we need to re-baby proof the house.   Cooper is mobile!

Though he’s been “scooting” for a while now, The Crawl finally clicked and my little superman is now able to get wherever it is he wants to go.   Not very fast, mind you, but he can get there.

It happened (oh, Irony!) on Sunday afternoon when Kenny and I were on our date and Cooper and Casey had their first ever Daddy Day at home.   Figures, right?   At least Casey got those first moves on video!   Anyway, it really hit me on Monday when Kenny, Cooper and I were playing in their room.   I got up to go to the bathroom, and Kenny followed me in there a minute later to ask a question.   As we were turning back to the door to go back to their room, who should pop into the doorway but Cooper!   It seems that he decided to see where everybody went and followed us.   Time to dig up the baby gates and outlet covers again!

My little bumble is also turning into a champion eater.   He is a baby food connoisseur.   I’ve dabbled in making some homemade for him – which he definitely prefers – and his favorites are carrots, apples, plain yogurt and sweet potatoes.

He is also making his mind known in other areas.   For example, I can no longer read to Kenny while I nurse.   Cooper twists and turns and tries to sit up and see what I’m doing.   Gone, too, are the days of being able to plop him in the floor with a toy and do something engaging with Kenny (like a board game or a puzzle).   Coop wants to be in the center of it all, and he will sit right on top of whatever we’re trying to do and start shoving the pieces into his mouth.   Who new that CandyLand cards were edible?   Whether it is his way of trying to play, or his way of getting attention, it pretty much has determined that he is a Person.  

Nobody puts Baby in a corner, right??   ha ha…

    I like the “Dirty Dancing” reference 🙂 I can’t believe what all a 13 month old can get into… Yikes! And when do I start the whole “naughty chair” stuff… Ugh.
