Cooper John has gotten great at saying "no" lately. So great in fact that sometimes it hurts my feelings. There have been several times lately that when I go to get him out of his crib in the morning he tells me "no". Sometimes he will even back himself into the corner away from my reach. I'm pretty sure he tells me no because he much prefers it when Emma Jo gets him in the morning. Just about every morning she asks "can I get Cooper when he wakes up?". When she goes in to get him he smiles and sometimes even laughs. He sure does love her. After being so upset when he told me no one morning, I decided to leave him in his crib. He wasn't upset and happily played with his blanket and bumper.
From my bedroom I can see right into his room and could see him playing "peek-a-boo" with me through his crib. I thought it was so cute and totally took away the unhappy feeling I had from him not wanting me to pick him up in the morning.
Grace Louise on the other hand is always happy to see me in the morning, especially when she wakes up early enough to get to cuddle with me in bed for a few minutes. We always say we are just waiting to watch the weather before we start our day so that we know how to dress.
