Can't get enough of cute Emmy
Camping out in the backyard is so fun except when your parents forget to turn off the sprinklers!
He's lost 4 lbs since he's been home but not because he doesn't eat. He actually has a great appetite and has adjusted well to the food. He'll eat almost anything, except cereal with milk.
He is much a more active than he was at first.
He has more endurance and doesn't sweat as profusely as he used to.
Communication has been great.
We feel like he was blessed to be able to understand English very quickly.
In the beginning he would used a lot of Chinese words.
In fact Mason and Ridge now ask for a drink in Chinese,
but Cooper rarely says Chinese words anymore.
His expressive personality and body language have made it easy
to understand what he wants and needs.
He tries to say things in English and it is getting easier to understand some things.
I think it safe to say Cooper is having the summer of his life!
So are the rest of us! We are so glad he is here!
