September has been busy!!

I updated the milestone list (see below) if you want to check it out.

This month we have gone to the zoo where our good friend Vada gave him kissies in front of the snake exhibit. And Cooper got pulled around in his wagon while he chowed down on pretzels.

We also went to down town Detroit with Auntie Beth and Uncle Mike and stared at Canada across the Detroit River

Then we went to the park with a friend and learned to walk part way up the slide, then slide back down on our bottom. Cooper also fell down and got a boo-boo, to which our friend Julia promptly hugged and made better!

Then we had some friends over for dinner. I get the feeling we're going to have to keep an eye on these two when they get older! LOL First kissies at the zoo and now conspiring together in the chair... uh oh!
