Step By Step...

Yes, the recent NKOTB sighting on the AMAs inspired my title for this blog but Cooper was really the one stealing the show last night!
For a few weeks Kevin and I have been encouraging Cooper to try to take a few independent steps. He responds by giggling and attempting to run in between the two of us, which results in a quick catch by one of us to avoid a dozen falls on the face.
Of course, as we assumed it may play out, last night as we casually played in the living room Cooper suddenly decided that he could indeed walk and proceeded to do so from one chair to another. Without letting him know we had caught on to his new talent, Kevin went to the opposide side of the room and hid behind the couch. This of course got Cooper's attention and his little legs moving!

We've been having FUN!

Cooper turned ONE (!) and we have a big party to celebrate. Our house overflowed with family and friends, and food! We were once again reminded how fortunate we are to have such wonderful people in our life.
We had Cooper's one year well check- and got three shots- boo to that.
Cooper was 26 1/2 pounds and in the 95% for height and weight. Our little boy has "big paws" as one of Kevin's friends pointed out. It is noticeable to us when he is feeding himself and those "paws" are close to his cute little face.
