New things in Cooper's world

The left fist discovery is tough to top, but we've found some other new things this week.

Cooper can smile at himself (the orange thing is a mirror).

He can grab things and pull them toward his mouth.

He's reaching out for toys.

He met some new friends at a playdate with other babies born to ladies in my water aerobics class. (He's the second one in from the right.)

And he's doing great at pushing himself up when he's on his tummy.

Pretty talented!

He can giggle, chuckle, laugh... it's the most precious sound.

Look what Cooper found:

His left fist!

Always growing, always learning.

Here's Cooper's 14-week alligator picture from this morning.

We're practicing grabbing onto toys, and this ball is perfect. He can hook his fingers around it, even if by accident, and it doesn't hurt when he smacks himself in the face with it or tries to eat it.

We put dangling toys on his carseat, and he seems fairly interested in them.

And he's still really smiley, despite our experience at the Picture People studios when he failed to smile at all. "No really," I protested to the photographer, "he can smile. It's super cute." But I got nothing. Until the photographer left the room, of course.

Three months old

And so sweet and smiley!
