Our Six Month One-year-old

Cooper is now SIX months old, but he is the size of a one-year-old. At his six month check-up, he weighed 20 lbs. 12 oz. and was in the 95%ile. He is 28 1/2 inches tall which is higher than the 95%ile and his head circumference was in the 92%ile. He's got a big body AND a big brain!!! What a bonus! He wears size 3 diapers and has many leaks and blow-outs, but when we put him in 4, the messes stay in better. He will be moving onto the 4 when we use our last size 3! He is getting too big for his 6-9 month clothes and fits into many 12 month clothes. He is growing WAY TOO FAST! He bottoms out the Moby when I put him in so I can carry him and still use both my hands. He has rolls and rolls of cute little skin!

He is enjoying most baby foods- especially applesauce, bananas, and pears. He doesn't really like squash or carrots. He absolutely LOVES his Nuby. It has a soft plastic nipple that he has figured out how to use. He drinks and drinks like crazy. (He is a heavy drinker like his dad:) Sometimes, he just likes to get a lot of water into his mouth and then let it drain down his chin thus soaking his bib and shirt. I'm pretty sure he knows what the sign for "eat" and "drink" mean though he hasn't signed them back to me yet.
He has discovered his feet, toes and socks. He like to pull his sock off and occasionally likes to suck on his toes.Cooper LOVES bathtime and splashing in water. He jumps up and down and leans toward the tub when I am filling it. Oh the joy!
He sits up by himself very well. On occasion, he will get really excited and throw himself back so I still put a cushion behind him for those times.
Cooper is still enjoying his binkie and still puts everything in his mouth! It is hiliarious to see how much/what he can fit in that mouth of his. He has two teeth on the bottom.
Mr. Cooper is a screamer. He has this high-pitched squeal of excitement at literally makes Cadence cry and it hurts my ears. I don't know how he makes a sound so high and so loud. His excitement is our fear!!! He also makes a cute little clicking/kissing sound. I will make a kissing sound to him and he makes it back to me. It is so adorable!!!

Cooper is starting to move around when he is on his tummy. He attempts to move towards things. Of course I am discouraging this as it will lead to crawling:) Crawling and putting everything in his mouth don't work well for me being a mom!

Cooper is still a very good baby/boy! He is happy and loves to play with his sister. He doesn't sleep well, but I love him a whole bunch! I can't believe he has been with us physically for half a year!!!

What a handsome little man. His eyes are beautiful!

You want to know the funny thing...My (nearly) 4 yr old weighs only 29 lbs. I have been "calorie packing" his meals for years. Yet it doesnt seem to do much! Yikes.

He is so darn cute! I can't get over how big he is. Ryan was not evem 20 pounds when he was a year. I love how much he smiles, he is such a fun baby to be around!

He is a big boy. They do grow up way too fast especially when they are almost off the charts for their age. He is a cutie though!

I am eating him up! I could just smooch on him all day! And I LOVE that he is a BIG BOY!! I thought there was no one out there who could rival Tenny, and I'm thrilled Cooper is!
