Health: Everyone in our house had the stomach flu over the weekend. It started on Friday morning with Cooper. He threw up a few times and then was back to normal! Sunday Kirk caught the same bug, and then I started to feel a little sick in the evening.
Says: Cooper said 2 things this weekend that just blew me away! We were at my parent’s house sitting around the table having a drink. We asked Cooper what Kirk was drinking and Cooper said “beer.” Then we asked him what I was drinking, and Cooper said “beer, also.” Then we were asking him what he wanted to eat. First we asked him if he wanted an apple and he said “no apple.” Then we asked if he wanted a banana and he said “no banana, either.” The “also” and the “either” just blew me away because that it just so much more than naming things.
Does: Cooper is a hugger. He loves hugging and loves to hug all kids. I think sometimes other kids don’t like it, but he is just a friendly guy. But he also has been having problems with biting and pinching. He loves giving hugs and kisses, but also tries to bite or pinch you.
Social and Activity: This weekend we went to the Hometown Holiday event. There were train rides, Santa, a tree lighting, and reindeer. Cooper loved riding in the train. At first he was a little scared to be by himself and said “mommy daddy come on!” because he wanted us to go with him. But as soon as the train started, he loved it!!
We also went to Santa Day at my work. Last year Cooper loved Santa, but this year he was just kind of neutral about it. He didn’t hate him, but didn’t really want to sit on his lap or be up there without me.
