Right Now: Cooper @ 2 years, 9 months
|At the zoo: 1.1.2012|
Chatterbox. Cooper repeats everything we say and has so much to say about things. He can count in English and Spanish. He’s learning his colors (in English and Spanish). He can sing the ABC song, along with many others. It’s getting much easier to understand what he’s saying and what he wants.
A lover: Cooper is a total lover and can play his mama like no one else. He offers kisses, right before he asks for M&Ms. He extends his hand and says “Hold my hand Mama.” And then he demands I pick him up and hold him. And with every single kiss (and demand) I melt a little more. I adore this boy. Cooper gets cuddlier and cuddlier each day. He ‘nuggles Mama. He ‘nuggles Daddy. He ‘nuggles Shelby. He’s all about ‘nuggling.
Not potty trained: Cooper is struggling with potty training. He talks about what potty training is. He understands the concept, but he’s super stubborn. He also leaks a lot, so we’re not quite sure if there is another (medical) issue going on.
Stalling: Cooper loves to stall. He knows what he wants and when he wants it. And if he doesn’t want to do it at that moment, he stalls. Like bedtime. He loves to run to the couch and say “I sit couch, I sit couch” when I announce it’s bedtime.
Hats: Loves wearing hats. Unlike other kids, he doesn’t take his hats off when you put it on him. In fact, getting the hat off is the hard part. He loves to wear them and will throw a fit when you try to take them off.
I love, love this boy. And I love how happy, joyful and full of life he is. He makes my days brighter. He’s growing into such a lovely little buy.
