Cooper's Camera

Cooper got a kid digital camera for Christmas. Here he is using it as a phone:

And finally using it as a camera:

But he points the camera backwards so he blinds himself with the flash, and we get lots of pictures like this:

Other pictures:

I sent the camera to daycare with him one day, and it came home with 274 pictures on it. This is Cooper and his friend William:

The camera also has icons you can use to enhance your pictures if you line things up carefully:

My goodness, we love drumming.

Using the ice-scraper-pedal on the plastic-bowl-bass-drum.

Using the tree root as a bass drum pedal.

Directing the pep band. (Note he's switched from snapping and directing with a closed fist, to the pointing method now.)

Dream come true! Mr. Nate let Cooper play his drums!

These boots were made for walkin'...

Grandpa Cecil and Grandma Joan picked up these fabulous cowboy boots for Cooper. Initially, he was a bit scared of them and wanted them kept securely in the box. But tonight he wanted them on.

Walking like a cowboy...

With the pants over the boots.

Cooper would only take the boots off if they could be in his crib for night:
I sense a new obsession...
