Cooper Turns One!

So we are a little late in posting pictures… but what’s new?

Cooper had a great time at his birthday party! He loved seeing friends and neighbors at the house, even saw some baby friends from school, and was generally a good sport about everything. Well, everything but the cake, that is. Since we suspect a dairy allergy and we have other friends with dietary restrictions, I made a batch of egg-free/dairy-free/soy-free cupcakes to supplement the yummy cupcakes from Tee and Cakes. Perhaps we should have had a dress rehearsal before the party since Cooper had no idea what the cupcake was or what to do with it and I think he even got a little angry with me for putting it near him. We’ll try again next year, buddy.

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to

Cooper got LOTS of help opening presents... but especially loved the wrapping and the bags the most

Cooper also had his one-year doctor’s appointment today and the stats are not surprising in this household. Average height (well, the average between Mike and Me, that is), skinny body… huge head.

Height: 29.25 inches (25th percentile)
Weight: 16 lbs, 14 oz (1 percentile)
Head circumference: 18.5 inches (75th percentile)
