When we lived in South Pasadena, Mercedes loved to get soft -serve ice cream cones from the Mc D's down the street. I don't remember the first time that I let her handle an ice cream cone. I finally gave Cooper a chance to experience the wonder of our favorite treat recently. He did surprisingly well, and really enjoyed himself. He did a great job of multi-tasking too; handling the ice cream cone while digging in the sand/dirt.
Cooper's latest fixation is wiping his face. Unfortunately, he chooses to wipe it with his shirt CONSTANTLY. Think it'd help to put a handkerchief in his pocket every day?
By the way, don't you just love our backyard weed garden? No grass. Just weeds growing in the sand.
