So it's late but we wanted to post this. Cooper had his Birthday party on the 18th of July at the clubhouse that our neighborhood owns. We had so many of his friends over and it was quite a success. We brought many of Cooper's toys out so the little ones can play with them while the adults ate and mingled.
Cooper had a special cake made by a local cakery and had a blast eating it.
Thank you everyone for such a wondergul day.

1st Birthday!

Birthday Cake!, originally uploaded by tomo.ono.

Cooper is one years old!! We can't believe he's already reached this milestone. We had a little birthday party and he got to eat his first birthday cake. He also got a few exciting presents such as a Michigan football jersey and a talking Mickey Mouse. We're planning a bigger birthday party on Sunday but this was a nice little party to celebrate his anniversary.

The 4th of July--take 2!

On the 5th of July, we went to the 4th of July parade in Centerville with Matthew and his mom and dad. Cooper had a blast! He waved and smiled and watched all of the neat floats, bands, cars, and lots of other neat things go by. He loved standing up to wave and sitting on the curb watching the parade go by. We decided not to do fireworks this year...but I think next year, Cooper will be ready!

The 4th of July!

Cooper's first 4th of July was a lot of fun! We went for a walk in the park, played on the playground, and then went to his friend Matthew's for a cookout! Cooper and Matthew got along very well. They shared toys and even went for a swim in Matthew's pool.

There He Goes!!!

COOPER DID IT! He walked across our living room from the couch to the coffee table! He is getting more and more sturdy and balanced every time he walks. And his is very proud of himself! :) The voices you here, other than me, are Shannon and Kayu. We were video chatting to welcome Kayu home from Afghanistan (YAY!) and Cooper wanted to show them what he could do! Unfortunately Miss Charlotte was asleep, but he'll show her soon. :)

My Miss Staci

Cooper has been a very lucky little boy and has some wonderful teachers who he adores...but he had a particular love for Miss Staci and let me tell you it is mutual! :) Miss Staci is staying home with her kids this summer so Cooper hasn't seen her in weeks! Yesterday, we met up to play for a little while. Cooper got some good Miss Staci cuddles. :) AND he got to show Miss Staci AND Miss Allison (another one of his wonderful teachers who came along too!) how he's such a big boy and working hard on walking! :-D

Hard at Work

Cooper and our friend Joey got to play at Young's Dairy during my office's summer picnic. They particularly enjoyed shoveling corn, going down the slide, and playing with the corn hole set (they actually put the bean bags into the holes!). :)

Down...and Up...and Down...and Up! :)

Cooper has mastered the stairs. He's actually managed to do the whole flight! He's pretty steady and knows how he needs to set his feet. Such a big boy!
