Health: Last night Cooper woke up at about 11:30 pm crying/screaming. He was pretty inconsolable and wouldn’t go back to sleep until about 1:30 am. He didn’t have a fever and said nothing hurt, so we thought he just had a bad dream and didn’t know how to process it. But this morning he woke up with a fever and said his ear hurt. So we went to the doctor and confirmed he had an ear infection. Poor guy! We got some antibiotics and ibuprofen so hopefully he will feel better soon.
Let me just say how nice it is to have Cooper able to communicate what is wrong with him. He could instantly tell me his ear hurt this morning. And he was just too cute at the doctor’s office. She walked in and asked him how he was doing. He said “Cooper ear hurt. This ear. Cooper need medicine. Cooper go to Target to get medicine. And a cake pop.” LOL. Not feeling good – but he still wants his treats!
Says: He walked into our house the other day and went straight to his kitchen. “Santa give Cooper this kitchen. Nice kitchen. Santa give Cooper this nice blender too. NICE.” Just last week I was mentioning how he remembers things – and this is just another example! We haven’t really talked about Santa much since Christmas, although he does wear Santa Pajamas sometimes.
Cooper loves telling me to drive faster in the car and always wants me to go at the stoplights. I told him that I couldn’t drive faster because the police would give me a ticket and then I would have to pay the policeman for the ticket. He said “Cooper eat the ticket. No more ticket.” Uh-oh.
“Picture me!” when he wants me to take a picture of him.
Does: He can tell the difference between his left hand and right hand (and also left feet and right feet).
Likes and Dislikes: He loves cleaning up. We were over at a friend’s house this week and he loved the toy vacuum. Then later he spilled a little water on the floor and when I pointed out the mess, he ran and got the “spray” and paper towels to clean it up.
He loves drinking his tea – it’s decaf so don’t worry that he’s staying up late 🙂
Weekly Random Moments: Kirk got new tires on this truck this weekend and wanted me to share a picture.
