More Cooperisms and an Answer to a Question - Part 2

Last week I posted about some of the funny things Cooper has been saying. Since then I have been e-mailing myself as he says other things in order to do two things: 1)Have a record of the funny things he does and 2) Post them here to share.

Cooper recently moved to a new class at day-care. In the class, there is a little boy named Jeffrey. He is a little older than Cooper, so he is generally in the class for a while and then moves up before it is time for Cooper to move up. The other day Cooper was talking about Jeffrey. I asked him if Jeffrey was his friend and this was his response. "Yeah, and Jeffrey's parents look cool."

A few days before that we were getting ready for work and Cooper was up and playing in our bathroom. He put on a pair of Allison's sandals and was walking around our bedroom and the bathroom. He stumbled, kicked them off, and said "Those are not cool!" Apparently Allison and/or I say the word cool quite a bit and he has picked up on it.

Tuesday of this week we ate dinner with our good friends, The Tidwells. Cooper loves to be with Nick and Kristin. We were at Snappy Tomato and had a table that has a booth on one side and chairs on the other side. Allison and Cooper were sitting on the booth side. Kristin and I had not sat down yet and Cooper looked up. He said, "Sit with me Kristin." She looked at me as though to say, "What do I do?" Cooper then said, "Here's some room," in the sweetest little voice. Kristin, obviously, couldn't resist that. He really is a sweet little boy.

One day last week we were driving downtown, on our way home from work. A small shuttle bus from Christie's Cabaret passed in front of us. If you haven't seen one, the shuttle has several women on it. Cooper saw it as said, "What's that truck about?" I couldn't stop laughing. It is so amazing how perceptive their little minds are, as he clearly knew that was out of the ordinary. Allison, in her mommy wisdom said, "It's about the girls," and Cooper apparently was satisfied with that answer.

I am always amazed at his little mind and how much he is listening and soaks things up from the world around him. I will continue to write these down and post them here from time to time.

Very cute. And yes, both you do say "cool" a lot. Caroline is a little mirror and mimic-er too, she reveals to us on a daily basis the things we say and do without much thought.
