Health: The rash on Cooper’s chest is getting much lighter. Hopefully it will go away totally soon.
Sleeps: We are back to pre-Mexico sleeping!
Eats: Cooper tried corn on the cob this weekend and loved it.
Says: New word of the week is “ice.” Cooper loves his water with ice and will always request it! At first I thought he was just saying this because he would point to the water dispenser in the fridge, but then I figured out he was actually pointing to the ice!
Does: You may notice a theme in this week’s photos – the Elmo chair. I got that at a garage sale last week, and it has turned into Cooper’s favorite thing. He drags it everywhere and loves to sit in it.
The beautiful weather this week has meant LOTS of outside time. I have my eyes open for a water table because I know Cooper would love it. I’m hoping to score one at a garage sale.
We are also working on teaching Cooper to be gentle. He’s such a high energy kid, but sometimes that translates into playing too rough with other kids. So we are working on helping him to be more gentle with everything; other kids, pets, toys, flowers (he tries to pull out all our flowers), etc.
Social and Activity: Well after I was just raving about his day care last week, it turns out we need to find a new day care. His current lady has an assistant that helps her a few mornings a week while she runs errands, and the assistant is wanting to cut back on her hours. This combined with the fact that she is going to be moving this summer means that she is closing the day care and phasing out kids. So Cooper has another week at this day care. We’ve started the search for a new place, but with no luck so far.
Milestones: We noticed that Cooper’s top two front molars came in – which brings his grand total of teeth to 12!
Weekly Random Moments: Kirk and I celebrated our 11 year anniversary this weekend! And for our anniversary (even though we don’t usually do presents – just a vacation) Kirk got me an awesome present. I’m going to visit my sister (alone!!) at the end of June! I’m so excited to see my sister, so excited for the alone time, so sad to leave Cooper and Kirk and worried about being gone. I know Kirk will do a great job – but it’s just scary to let go, especially the first time being away from them.
