Stats: Last weigh in he was 24 lbs 9 oz.
Health: Great. Healthy little guy!
Sleeps: SOOO good this week. So good. He’s pretty much been sleeping through the night most nights, and the one or two nights this week he woke up, he went back to sleep pretty quickly after I gave him a little water. His naps are still great – about 2.5 to 3 hours after lunch.
Eats: One day Cooper will eat everything under the sun (his daycare lady says he is the best eater out of all her kids), and the next day he hardly wants anything to eat. It’s probably the heat – who wants to eat a ton of food when it’s 95 degrees outside!
Says: This week Cooper learned to say “bye.”
Does: The past week or so, Cooper has been loving reading books before bed! I am so excited about this! I am such a big reader, and I was sad when he wasn’t showing much interest in books. But this week it’s totally different! He’s requesting “Goodnight Moon” before he goes down, and wants us to read it again and again. Once we finish, he says “more!” so we read it again. And again.
Likes and Dislikes: LOVES lawn mowers. When every he hears a lawn mower in the neighborhood, he wants to try and find it. On Sunday night, Kirk was mowing the lawn and I was reading Cooper some stories before bed. As soon as he heard the lawn mower start up, he said “ma mo-ah” and pointed to the door. He just wanted to go watch daddy mow the lawn. So we went outside and watched, and he was just in awe of the lawn mower. Maybe that means he will love doing this chore in a few years 😉
He is starting to overcome his fear of vacuum cleaners. We got a little dust buster this week, and Cooper spent all weekend bringing me the dust buster and pointing to places where he wanted me to “vac.”
Social and Activity: This weekend was 4th of July – so my parents had a big party. Cooper loved being at the party and was dancing and playing with everyone. On Saturday afternoon, we also took him to the splash park again. It’s been so hot that anything to cool down is nice.
Weekly Random Moments: We finished up the floor tiles in the laundry room and bathroom. I still need to take some pictures of the finished product. We have some work that we still want to do with the counters, but at least the floor is done! But last night, our water heater broke so we’ll have to have that replaced today. Cold showers and baths for everyone last night and this morning! And then the ceiling fan in Cooper’s room stopped working this morning. Ugh.
Watching daddy work.
