an addition

Tonight Cooper added to the "let me think about it for a second" and exclaimed "I got it!" and raised one finger in the perfect 'eureka' pose. Too funny!

Some Cooper Cuties

Here are some little funny phrases leaving us laughing these days:

"Let me think about it for a second" and he proceeds to put his hand on his cheek and say "hmmmm".

When angry with me or Erik, the over dramatic Cooper yells "You broke my life!", his more colorful version of 'you broke my heart'. Just today Erik "broke his life" because he closed the door when Cooper wanted to do it.

and

"Oh WOW!" for just about everything, including getting broccoli for dinner or putting on his shoes. Gotta love the enthusiasm!

Making Sun Catchers

I helped Cooper make some sun catchers today. Don't know what came over me to get so crafty. Perhaps all the reading of creative blogs like this one has finally started to rub off.

My favorite part of the project was watching Coop earnestly make decisions on color and leaf placement. This is a new side to him and I love seeing it. I think that he was fairly proud of the finished products. He did prefer to wear the sun catchers though....totally his idea, I never would have thought of them as giant necklaces!

Cooper's First Movie

Erik set Cooper loose with a video camera last night. With a little editing, the result is an interesting peak at the world through the eyes of a two year old.

Be warned....the camera is obviously unsteady and may make you feel a little dizzy. He also enjoys pushing the record/stop button, continuously, which has an interesting effect.

P.S. Please excuse the messy house. I've been fighting a bad cold/flu following Erik being gone all week last week. A little chaotic around here!
