Three Month Old Trapped In A Six Month Old Body

Mr. Cooper has turned THREE months. Time has flown by so quickly. He is one solid boy. People pick him up and comment about how heavy he is. His bones must be very dense!!! He is no longer a mini-cooper. I'm guessing he weighs at least 16 pounds. He fits in 3-6 and some 6-9 month clothes and wears size 3 diapers. The size 2 diapers were too tight around his legs and he was having many blow-outs. People ask me if he is six months old. I think he has many symptoms of being older than he really is like pre-mature balding, a body that looks twice as old as he really is, and snorting when he cries.

Cooper has great head control and strong legs. If he could balance, he could stand up by himself. We work on sitting, but he lacks the trunk control to do it by himself. He loves the moving mobile in his crib and the bouncer in the bathroom that has hanging/bouncing objects. HWhen there are objects over his head, he is starting to reach for and hit them. He still doesn't enjoy tummy time, but can hold his head up for quite a while. He blows bubbles and jabbers little sounds. Every once in a while, he makes this funny high pitched yell of excitement. He is smiling more (especially at Cadence). Cadence is his best friend and he survives her poking, prodding and tickling. She loves to startle and wake him up. Cooper is such a good little boy. He loves to be cuddled and held. He loves to fall asleep in our arms. We love our Cooper pooper!!!
Cadence wants to be in every picture of Cooper! She tells him, "I'm glad you came to visit our house in mommy's belly."

Cooper really is looking big. They grow too fast. I love the pic of both of them asleep in the stroller!

Cooper reminds me a lot of my baby boys (I miss them)! How cute that Cadence is glad he came to visit your home.

Cooper is an absolutely beautiful child. I mean, Cadence has always stolen the show with her cute hair and gorgeous eyes, but I never thought a boy could be just as striking. Wow, you and Chris do good work. Are Cooper's eyes the same grey-blue color as Cadence's?
