10 Months!

How is Will 10 months already?! Time is zooming by now.

Will has four teeth and he's working on his fifth. He sleeps 11 hours at night on average (except when teething!), and he eats any food he can get his hands on. He is a speedy crawler, pulls himself up on all things, and he scoots along furniture. He enjoys tumbling and wrestling, getting tickles, and nursery games. Will is very observant and transitions to new environments easily. He doesn't have a desire to stand and move forward yet. He is a very happy baby, but he definitely has his moments--especially when we tell him "no." He loves and giggles at Maggie, but gets tired of her kisses. Despite all his toys, he'd rather play with off-limit items like fireplaces, routers, and electrical outlets. Will LOVES to make sounds, scream, and babble.

Here is a boatload of pictures...just because I can!

You bring so much joy to our lives, Will! Mommy and Daddy love you like crazy, baby cakes!

43 Weeks!

Our growing boy is 43 weeks old today!

Will enjoys waving at himself, kind of clapping, mimicking hiccups, and squirming/rolling over during diaper changes. He can do a three-point turn in his walker, and he knows when you're pleased with him because he'll squeal and then fake laugh.

"He's got the whole world in his hands" is one of his favorite songs (his momma's rendition of course), and he loves momma's necklaces. He likes to type on the computer whenever he gets a hot second, but we still don't let him use/watch electronics (just a personal preference, but I know it will change).

Will still loves seeing himself in the mirror, and he giggles at pictures or videos of himself. We keep trying to do puzzles, but right now it's more fun to bang the pieces together. Whenever we read books, Will looks back at me in amazement--probably because I'm such an awesome reader...or maybe because of the inflection in my voice ;)

He's still a speedy crawler and enjoys standing, but he's not into walking with a push toy yet. We received our Ages & Stages questionnaire in the mail today to see if he's developmentally on track. After reading a skill I looked up at Will and he was drooling on the kitchen floor and then playing with his spit. Unfortunately that wasn't one of the skills they were looking for :P

Tried to get a picture of Will in his boxer shirt next to Mags...clearly that wasn't going to happen!

 Hard to get pictures of him sitting still and looking these days!

Trying to figure it out

Those teeth kill me--I adore them!

Our little boy warms my heart on even the gloomiest days!

42 Weeks!

42 weeks! I cannot warp my head around the fact that in 10 more weeks Will is going to be a year old. Yikes! Will is such a fabulous eater--I hope things don't change! He'll eat anything in sight, and we have to tell him when to stop since I think he'd eat forever if he could. He's now in 18 month clothes, and he's waving on command. He's also starting to clap...well, he tries and thinks he is :) Not much else new to report--he's a sweet as always.

We have so much fun with you, Will!

He was mad his shirt was on...

Playing with his friend, Autumn

Love you of course!
