10 Months Old!

Today Cooper has reached 10 months of age! It is hard to grasp that we have made it to this point already! When I look at pictures of Cooper when he was brand new, I don't really remember him being that small. It went so fast, it seems like he has always been the size he is now (30 inches long, 20 lbs), and the way he is now...a happy, sweet, adventurous little pill that is trying to walk and climb on and out of everything! Yesterday he got really mad because he was trying to climb out of his high chair but I had strapped him in too well. He tries to climb out of the pack-n-play, and can almost do it, so I am going to have to find another way to take a shower!
Cooper now has eight teeth, and at least one more coming...I don't know for sure, he doesn't exactly let us look in his mouth. He has also widely expanded his repertoire of foods! I am loving the ease of just putting him in his high chair and giving him a handful of something to eat. He loves Cheerios, bananas, peaches, pineapple, wagon-wheel pasta, turkey, goldfish crackers, whole-wheat waffles, toast, and yogurt. He isn't a huge vegetable eater, unfortunately, but I do manage to get some broccoli or peas down him...if I sneak it into his pasta. I was worried we would have a hard time getting him off pureed foods, but if I do try and feed him something, he won't have it! He would rather feed himself, which is fine with me!
In the past month, Cooper has learned to clap his hands and say "Yea!", and he sort of whispers now! So cute! He is sooo close to walking! He can stand on his own for several minutes and sometimes will take a cautious step towards one of us...so I know it won't be long!
