My big, sweet, beautiful boy turned 6 months on the 15th. Six months, people. Where is the pause button? I'm trying to soak up this wonderful, crazy time in my life, but it's going by so quickly.
Here's what our little guy has been up to lately:
-At his 6 month check up he weighed a whopping 19 lbs 5 oz. To give you some perspective, Carter weight 18 lbs 12oz at ONE YEAR.
-He's still nursing like a champ. I mean, duh ... look at him :) He's huge. He also loves his baby cereal and carrots. Green beans were not a big hit.
-I have a hard time finding ANY similarities between him and Carter as babies. Truly, their personalities are so unique.
-Cooper loves to smile and laugh- especially at his big brother. And of course, Carter thinks he's greatest thing in the world.
-He's super, SUPER strong and, given the chance, will pull anything out of your hand in order to put it in his mouth. This includes coffee cups, as I learned the hard way.
-Lately, I've caught him:
hitting his crib mobile with one hand.. spinning it around
turning on and off his rainforest-music-thingy that's attached to his crib
rolling across the room to get to Carter's alphabet puzzle...
and then pulling out a piece and stuffing it in his mouth
He's a mess, but in the best kind of way.
-His hand-eye coordination is remarkable and he just might already be more skilled in this area than his brother is at 3 years old! (Daddy's really hoping for a ball player)
-He is sitting up (without support) for longer periods of time, though would much prefer to be on the move than sit still.
-He currently wears a size 3 diaper and mostly 9-12 month clothes.
-Our sweet "Coopy Coop" is such an alert, happy boy and adds so much to our little family of four.
