Jabba the Hut syndrome- 7 1/2 months

We totally missed scheduling Cooper's 6 month doctor's visit and when I tried to get it scheduled they put me out an additional three weeks because of Christmas. We finally got him in this morning and our doctor mentioned Cooper's fake disease in the title. ;) These are his stats:

weight- 22 lbs. 9 oz. 91%
height- 28 in. 69%
head- 46 3/4 cm. 94%

Here's what's up with Cooper:
  • He officially turned 7 months on December 18th.
  • He's only about a pound away from 18 month clothes and that's what he got for Christmas!
  • He likes to crawl backwards, roll, stretch out his arms, and do anything he can to get into what he wants. He has been pulling himself up to his knees in his crib and on the entertainment center. Still no forward motion.
  • Coop has eaten almost every veggie and fruit now. The only one he really cringed about was sweet potatoes- I hear ya Coop.
  • He is very ticklish and has a very contagious laugh.
  • Cooper LOVES watching our doggie. He likes to pet him and when the dog is nearby he flails his arms and legs and smiles huge.
  • He has perfected his "high fives" so that it actually makes a sound and will give double fives (a high ten?) He is also waving at people and loves to clap his hands.
  • He is still drooling like crazy. The doctor said that there are four teeth on the way. I just hope they all don't come at once. Aye!
  • Two days ago, Cooper learned how to put himself into a sit while crawling backward. He does it so often now he's a pro.
  • He really loves to eat cereal puffs and other baby snacks. He's been drinking water from a sippy for about a month.
  • He is such a happy boy! We just love him!
