On 8/16/12 Cooper turned 14 months old! He is walking all over the place these days and is in to everything! We definitely need to invest in some more baby gates. Of course everywhere he's not supposed to go is where he wants to go constantly! He has teeth coming in everywhere! He has 14 total. All four molars and 4 on top and 6 on the bottom. I think with all his teething it has affected his sleep. All last week he would wake up screaming around 3am and just wanted to be held. I had forgotten what it felt like to have to get up in the middle of the night and it was not fun! :) He has become a good little eater. He still loves his fruits and veggies, and of course his yogurt. He has started eating meat really well too. I'm so glad he eats better, I worried about that for so long so its a relief to see him enjoying dinner time. Although now our problem is food throwing but we're working on that :) His ears and nose seem to be better since having his adenoids removed. They have ran some but nothing like it was before, so hopefully it has helped. We go back next week for his follow up so we'll see. His new favorite word is "light". Everytime you tun a light on or he sees a light he points and says it. He's also on a "uh oh" kick. Everything whether he did it accidently or on purpose (which is most of the time) is an "uh oh". Its too cute! I still can't believe how fast he is growing up! Our next goal is going to be weaning from the passy. This is going to be so much harder than weaning from the bottle. The bottle I just took away when he was a year old no exceptions. The passy on the other hand is going to be challenging because he is addicted!
14 months old!
I finally got the passy away from him so I could get some pictures without it :)
On Friday we went to Badger Fest in Arkadelphia. Eric's little sister is a jazzler this year so we went to watch her dance. They did really good and Cooper had fun listening to the band.
They were giving out these clappers so of course Coop had to have one. It was cute at the game, but not so much when he plays with it at the house. LOL!
On Wednesday this past week marked mine and Eric's 3rd wedding anniversary. We really haven't done much for our anniversaries in the past. The first year we went to deer camp. Yeah, real romantic huh? :) Last year, Cooper was only 2 months old so we couldn't do much. We all 3 went to Hot Springs for the day and did a little shopping. While we were in Home Goods, Cooper had a MAJOR blowout in his diaper to the point where we had to buy him something else to wear because I forgot a change of clothes. Then we decided to go out to eat, which ended up in us leaving early because Cooper was crying so hard in the restaurant having one of his meltdowns. Looking back, its funny, but at the time, it felt like a catastrophy! So, this year, I told him all I wanted was for us to go out to eat and have a nice dinner just the two of us. So, Nonee watched Cooper while we went to Hot Springs. We ate at Belle Arti downtown and it was really nice. Afterwards we decided to play a little putt putt golf. And I ALMOST beat him :) I did have 2 hole in one's :) So, needless to say we had a much needed fun night.
Happy 3 years!
