Will: 14 Months

Will was 14 months old on June 28th!

I cannot get over how incredibly fun this stage is! Will is full of personality...so sweet, silly and curious all the time. It's wonderful! He has 9 teeth now, has grown a lot taller, and he is running through the house. He stands up on his own to walk, and he enjoys climbing/rolling over everything. He is a pro at stumbling and hurting himself (eeeeek) which always freaks me out. He is a big dancer and lover of anything musical. Clapping and bothering Maggie are also his favorite pastimes. 

Will also enjoys clicking his tongue, sharing food, feeding us crackers, getting into food on his own, trying to use silverware, reading books, playing in water (big time!), swimming,  combing his hair, and he adores going for stroller/wagon rides. He is inquisitive and points/says sounds to most things. He makes more squeals than sounds, but he understands so much--it's so fun to watch him learn. 

He currently says (although not always on command)...

Caca (cracker)
hak (hot)

A review of pictures this past month:

I am amazed at this beautiful (big!) boy we have. Thank you, Lord, for him!

John Ball Zoo

This summer is flying by! Will and I take a walk or run every morning after breakfast and then play with neighbors, run errands or go visit someplace after his morning nap/lunch. Yesterday we met friends at John Ball Zoo! Will was tired, so he was pretty chill. The petting zoo was his favorite! And it was a blast being with his friend, Scarlet.

Finally keeping hats on

Seeing the bears

And then seeing a ceiling fan

After Daddy gets home we like to walk or go to the park--usually with neighbors. Once Will was out of the wagon, he ran to the swing. Daddy even took a slide ride with him :) 

I'm so thankful for a park in our backyard and sweet friends to enjoy it with!
