Daddy got to share one of his passions with Cooper yesterday...cars, cars, and more cars. We went to the Cincinnati Auto Show. Grandpa Alan and Susie came along too! In particular Cooper enjoyed trying out the Mini Cooper. As you can see, he liked it a lot! :) Cooper and Daddy also checked out the minivans....(Daddy think his next car will be an STI, but Mommy knows better!).

Well, I knew it would happen...it just came so fast. Cooper is advancing more and more every day. He has been standing while holding on to things for a few weeks now...but last night he really proved how strong he is. He lifted himself up from a seated position!!! In this video Tomo is helping him b/c his hands were too small to get a grip on the table. But then we let him grip his toy chest and up he went completely on his own! Unfortunately, he would not repeat for the camera. He's just amazing!!!!!

Cooper's cousins Xander and Kainan came to play on Sunday. Cooper and Xander had lots of fun playing with Cooper's zoo toy! It's fun watching Cooper start to interact with other people, especially other kids.

Cooper has found his favorite toy in the house. We had this bouncer pretty much since his birth but he has developed quite a liking to it recently. Maybe since he is eating more, he wants to spend all the extra energy some how. It's a riot watching him bounce around and go in circles in this thing.

We got about 8 inches of snow on Friday...and it was time for Cooper to experience it! We got all bundled up and went to play in the backyard. Cooper didn't really seem to know what to think of it. He sat pretty quietly while we threw snow all over the place, made snow angel legs with his legs, made him stand waist deep in snow...and yeah....generally acted like kids ourselves. It was really cold out (especially when the wind started blowing!) so Cooper and his rosy cheeks only stayed outside for a few minutes. Overall, I think Cooper enjoyed it...just wait until next year....sledding!!!! :-D

Aren't they cute when they match? Cooper finally fits the really cool Michigan sweatshirt that Mommy bought him in October for Daddy's birthday (don't worry, Daddy got presents too). Only problem was it is a 6 month size so we had to wait and wait and wait to wear it! :-D
Cooper is getting stronger everyday. He loves standing with a little help...and he can even do it without our support if he has something to hold onto! He's just growing up so fast! We'd better keep baby proofing....(As many of his relatives in Japan reminded me, Tomo walked by 10 months....Cooper will be 7 next week....).

There's something new that Cooper learns every day but this particular day was quite exciting for dad cause he learned to make a new sound, "Da." It's not exactly "dada" but one can interpret as him saying "dada" many times over. Dad 1 - 0 Mom, jk
