Cooper learned a new skill!! He does this very well with Apple Jacks, pretty good with other snacks too but when it comes to regular food, they somehow end up in his hair and not in the mouth...

Cooper has definitely found independence in his mobility. He had so much fun today at Gymboree! He crawled around to the other kids, to the balls, to Gymbo the clown...and he crawled through all the tunnels! After class, he took off across the room. He'd spotted a ball inside the really long tunnel from clear across the room! He went right over, got the ball and crawled all the way through the tunnel. Then, he turned around and came back the other way! He went back and forth, up and down the tunnel 4 or 5 times and wasn't hampered at all by it's wiggles and rolls! He's amazing! :-D

Yes, that handful of mulch did go in his mouth. Cooper has now officially eaten dirt. And he's still alive to tell the tale so I guess we can relax. :) We took a trip to the park to get some fresh air...Cooper went on the slide and the swings as well as standing all over the place to practice his balance and riding on a pony and a dinosaur!
Even though he just started crawling, Cooper is showing LOTS of signs that he is eager to walk! He pulls himself up, pushes himself up, does whatever he can do get himself up to a standing position...and then lets go! His balance is improving rapidly. We got him this super cool lion walker to help him along. He really enjoys pushing the nose and bouncing to the music. He also looks under the seat a lot....we think he's trying to check the engine...he might be a car guy like his dad.
...just kidding. :) Brandon has all these theories about how Cooper is bound to be a boy genius b/c Tomo is...well....Tomo. Brandon even does a little "bit" about it that is kind of funny. SO, we thought it would be funny to buy Cooper a rubik's cube and tell Brandon he'd solved it, no problem, first try. :)

No way!! Cooper learned to both crawl and sit-up (by himself from a flat position) at the same time! It is so much fun to watch where he would go next. His favorite things to crawl to are cell phones, remotes and places that he can stand himself up.
Now it's time to go look for fences to keep him contained...
