15 Months!

My baby is 15 months! I can hardly believe it and he is really more of a toddler now than a baby. I took him to the doctor today and he is doing great! He weighs 25 lb. 8 oz. (75%) and is a little over 32 inches (75%). He is almost exactly where Tyler was at this age. The biggest news this past week is that we took his pacifier away! If you have been around Cooper for even a small amount of time you know that he was completely addicted to his paci and had even named it already! Yikes!!! The first night we decided to take it away he was in his room looking under the bed for it and asking for it by name. He called it "nana". We just said all gone and he was not happy about it! But since that night he has done great without it. He talks a little bit more at nap time and bed time, but that is okay. He did manage to find some throughout the house and car and would surprise me by having one in his mouth when I would see him, but I think I have confiscated all of them by now.

Tyler and Cooper are really starting to play more and more with each other. Tyler always asks where Cooper is if he is not around and I think expects him to be by his side. Tyler can still be mean or too rough with him sometimes, but we are working on that. Cooper has also started to get an attitude when Tyler does something mean and usually grunts at him and swats his hand in the air like he is trying to hit him. It's pretty funny, but also something we are going to have to work on.

I'm so proud of Cooper and how far he has come. All of the nursery workers at church are telling me that he is doing great and that he seems much happier now that he can walk and keep up with the other kids. He is also turning into more of a Daddy's boy. He definitely still likes mom, but he LOVES when Daddy is around! We love you, Cooper!

Hurray for Cooper! He looks like he has a great secret in the picture. Can't wait to see him again.
