Recent weigh-in - 17.6 lbs, 27.5 inches

On Thursday I took Cooper to the baby clinic at our GP to get him weighed, measured and just to have them give him a general once over. All looks good, he is 8kg (17.6 lbs) and 70cm (27.5 inches). That puts him at about 96% weight (was 91%) and 99.6% height (was 98%). He just keeps on growing!! (FYI, I have a feeling that American babies are bigger than English babies because every American I know here says their kid is in the 90 something percentile! Going to have to compare notes with Taj!)

Cooper has switched allegiance

Now that the USA is out, Cooper is rooting for England! It is currently 2-1 Germany, Cooper was so nervous he couldn't watch and went to take a nap...

Cooper gets yet another new toy

Cooper seems to like it!

Cooper visits his friends in Hong Kong

We saw Jack Smith (son of Ian and Maria) yesterday. Cooper is twice
his age, and has him by a few pounds. But I have a feeling Jack will
be passing him soon!

Another new trick!

Cooper appears to have found his feet this week. It is very cute when
he does it when we are changing his diapers. I call it helping...

Cooper is "spirtling"

Not sure if that is a word. . . But Cooper is really enjoying it.

Cooper is enjoying Hong Kong so far...

He was great on the flight. One of the stewards said he had never seen
as pleasant of a baby in his 12 years of flying! Keep it up Cooper! ;)

Off to Hong Kong!

Cooper's third continent and 4th country. :)

We stopped for a quick visit at Borgo San Felice before we left Tuscany. It is still as beautiful as it was 2 years ago!

Italy: Cooper is a hit with the ladies

We went to Manon and Jochen's wedding in Tuscany. While there Cooper made some new fans - daughters of some friends of ours. (They must be cougars!) ;)

Italy: Sometimes a baby just needs to be changed

We were on a couple hour drive from Portofino to Tuscany, no changing rooms in the bathroom. . .

Italy: Hiking in Cinque Terre

Ok, we only walked from the car to the restaurant, but it was very hilly!
