Over a month!

It has been over a month since my last update so let's just do some bulleted points on what's been going on...

* We celebrated Christmas in Lake Park where Cooper got to meet Santa up close and in person. As Santa's firetruck neared my dad's house Cooper's arms stared to fly! He could hardly believe his eyes as the larger than life fire truck pulled in front of the house and Santa Claus hopped down to meet him. The next morning, after Santa had left gifts under the tree, Cooper re-discovered the joy he had found at his birthday of opening gifts.

* We had visitors! Mindi and Scott came to celebrate the bitter cold of winter with us (or actually they came to go to the Vikings game, but still...) we made our way to the HoliDazzle Parade!

* Cooper is showing us more and more everyday that he is turning into a little boy and not so much a baby. With his adventurous ideas of scaling every piece of furniture in the house, including his crib, the couch, the chairs, the stairs, the beds, the treadmill, the window sills, the doors, the tub.... you name it. Along with these excursions come growls, grunts and sighs of exertion and exasperation as he tries, fails and finally succeeds in conquering his new "mountain."

*Kevin and I left Cooper for a long weekend for the first time the middle of January. We had both left him for a few nights this summer but never on teh same trip together. While we were in Las Vegas with our good friends (and Cooper's godparents Josh and Krista) Cooper spent his time with my aunt Peggy and Kevin's parents. From the sound of it, they all had a good time together. We could hardly wait to get back to him though!

* Cooper had his 15 month check up this week (I cannot believe my little boy is 15 months old already!!) He weighed 28lbs and is 34" tall. He spent nearly the entire appointment exploring the exam room, which included a series of round and round and up and over the exam table. And let's not forget the digging in the doctor's pockets to see what he must be hiding in there. He is still between the 95 and 97% for height and weight. He is one sturdy boy.
