He learns so fast!

4 days in and he is a seasoned eater! So far he has enjoyed carrots, parsnips and butternut squash.

Cooper eats solids for the first time

We started with not very interesting baby rice.  He seemed to enjoy the process, although has a lot of work to do on swallowing. . .

Warning: This is a very long video. Perhaps only interesting to parents and grandparents. . .

Cooper has a heat rash

Yes, not something you normally have to worry about in London! We have an air conditioner in our room so he is sleeping on the floor in the corner of our room.

My boys

Chillin' out in front of the TV...

Ping pong at the Royal Hospital

This is a first!

Hard day at the office!

Getting a hang of this whole sitting thing

He has to use his hands to balance, but he is getting there!

Yes, that is him falling over at the end...

He did it! He did it!

He rolled over and got the arm out of the way! There was about a 3-minute pause with the arm under him but he made it in the end. :)

Already interested in beer!

Cooper appears very intent on getting some of Tom's beer. (Tom is a new friend that Chris met in a taxi line at the train station during the whole ash cloud debacle.)

Mommy, help me!

Daddy has some strange ideas about what is fun. ;) (This is why I don't buy Cooper many toys...)

Pseudo big brother

Cooper and Jack hang out in their chairs.

Cooper gets his own computer

Lou (his nanny) bought him his own computer today. She swears it was the only toy in the store he liked.... I don't know where he gets it from!

Cooper at the park

Cooper and I celebrated my bday by going to the park. He doesn't love the swing yet, but doesn't hate it either...

I hope the Longhorns don't suffer from the Cooper Curse

Hopefully the Longhorns do better this year than all the teams Cooper supported in the World Cup...

Cooper's team loses again

He is taking it fairly well...

Ready for the game!

Hup Holland!

Cooper's baptism - Christopher Cooper James Marsh

The church
Cooper is ready to go...
The main event
(Appears he really likes fire. . .)
The proud parents and (proxy) godparents (Jason and Alyssa)
And a very proud nanny (Lou)
Worn out by the big event Cooper went to sleep almost immediately.

Happy 5-month Bday!

Cooer seems a bit tired from our trip to CA. He has slept for about 12 of the last 13 hours... I am not complaining!

Cooper's team loses AGAIN!

He seems to have very bad luck... Spain 1 - Germany 0.

Cooper reaches a new level of luxury

It took about 5 hours but he slowly nudged me completely out of the seat. I ended up sitting on the footstool for 2 hours...

(We are back in London.)

Cooper goes swimming

Cooper hangs out pre-swim with Grandfather Johnson.

Jacuzzi time with Grandma.

Cooper has a snooze while Grandma Johnson shops

Cooper is one step closer to being a man

Cooper had his first visit to Home Depot today. Something I think is an important milestone in any young man's life. :)

Cooper laughing (possibly my favorite video yet!)

Since we are in CA without Chris I decided I needed to play the role of his dad and harass Cooper a little bit. As always, he loved it. . . =)

Cooper and Kannon

Konita and her son Kannon (6 weeks younger than Cooper) came to visit on Saturday.

Oh yeah, and Jessica and her kids too. ;)

3am and Cooper gets a new toy

He did sleep for 5 hours I can't complain too much... Hopefully he will wear himself out and sleep another 5!

Johnson family get together at LAX

My sister and her family were leaving for New York a short time after Cooper and I arrived. We all met up at Terminal 3.

What a nice cousin!

Cooper hangs out on yet another long haul flight

He seems almost bored of it already...

Cooper likes his 'travel' stroller

We got a new lighter weight stroller for planes and such. Supposedly some kids aren't comfortable enough to sleep in them. Doesn't appear to be a problem for Cooper!


Sort of....
