Collin Cooper is ten months old today! He's a big guy:
C-man has developed quite a few physical skills this month. He pulls up on everything he can find, he does a standard crawl (rather than "the worm" that he was doing), and he's walking!! He quickly moved from taking one or two steps at a time to taking fifteen or twenty steps at a time. He is getting pretty stable, and luckily he's good at falling backwards onto his booty or catching himself with his hands if he falls forward.
He has plenty of other new skills too, much of it due to how observant he is. He clicks his tongue, growls, gives high five, and waves. He loves putting things in and taking things out, so two of his favorite places in the house are the kitchen cabinets and the refrigerator. :-)
Collin is so intelligent! He loves to examine details, he enjoys watching people wherever we go, he tries to imitate what he sees and hears, and he does such a good job figuring out how things work. He's creative and persistent, which are two traits that help him solve problems and learn new things very quickly!
Collin's sweet smile is given pretty freely, and he makes lots of noise! He babbles constantly, says "dada" and "mama," and likes to laugh.
Collin has always sat at the table with us while we eat, but now he's really a part of family meals. He's willing to try anything and he enjoys most foods. New things he's enjoyed this month include spaghetti, turkey and dumplings, quesadillas, hamburgers, and the Thanksgiving feast.
Collin is a fun, sweet, entertaining, intelligent, and creative little boy. We are so proud and we love him so much!!
