One Up

The Birthday Party was a riot! Cooper was enthralled with all the activity. Our loungeroom was full of presents, Cooper made a funny little "fffff" sound everytime he saw all the boxes. He stands up in his cot now. It is so amusing to greet each other eye to eye. He loves Dora. Alot.
Cooper has new tricks everyday. Clapping, dancing, waving, rousing on the dog & proclaiming "Uh-uh" before he does something mischievous. He uses little pincer fingers to place food into his mouth, trying whatever I offer. I love this age. He's my companion. My little friend. There's so much more interaction with a toddler. He says "Dad Dad Dad" husband asks him "Who's better Mum or Dad?" and of course Cooper knows only one answer "Dad!" Just wait until he can say "Mummy". For now I am referred to as "La" He bellows from the next room for me "L-aa! La!" He loves looking at photo's of himself. His nose crinkles & a toothy grin of recognition spreads across his face. "Who's that?" I ask. He knows darn well, La, that's Cooper.
Cooper plays the xylophone! One of his many lovely Birthday presents. He puts a toy phone to his ear, mimicking my actions. Ahhh, I just can't get enough of my busy boy.

Who's 1?

He'll be One on Friday.

Oh darling, beautiful boy!

You will have a party. Yes sir'ee!
A big celebration next weekend with a very silly amount of guests. You will have a Jumping Castle and a wonderful Pirate Ship cake. The Big Red Fire Engine will come and take all your friends riding on the back. A real Fire Engine! The bells & sirens will be blazing just for you.

You'll see helium balloons & eat Jelly! There's Pass the Parcel too! You have a very cool outfit & new sandals to wear. The sandals! Oh My! They are nearly as adorable as you! You can show everyone how you clap hands! You can grin your best 3-tooth smile and we'll sing. Happy Birthday you jolly good fellow.
You have given me the best year of my life. I hope yours has been just as grand.
