Will loves the park! On a good day, he goes to 3 parks! Loli usually takes him to 2 parks from 12-3p and then I take him to the park around 4:30pm when he gets up from his nap. When we go, he spends most of his time climbing the steps to spin this wheel and get in this tunnel...

Chad's parents came up to stay with Will for 3 nights while we were out of town. Will must have had the best time! Becky took awesome notes - letting us know that Will started saying "All Done", that he got 2 new bottom teeth, and that he took 4 steps. He also took a trip to McKinney to see his great grandparents. He had action packed days - including 3 walks on Sunday before we got home at 12pm!

For his past 2 birthdays, Will got Chad a peanut butter chocolate cake for his birthday from Tart. It is definitely one of his favorites, and I think he likes it more since it says "Happy Birthday Dad" on it. Check out what a difference a year makes! Will was so tiny and sleepy last year (he was only 2 weeks old!), and this year he is reaching for a piece!

My mom was so excited to hear that Will has good taste buds that she made him lots of meatballs. They are all packaged up with a few meatballs in each freezer bag that is maked "Will's Meatballs from Lovey". Clearly, these are not to be touched by me and Chad. Will has made a decent dent in the supply - he has been enjoying them for the past week. Thanks Lovey!

Due to the ash from the volcano eruption
we have had an unfortunate vacation disruption.
Our trip to Rome is no longer a "go"
No pasta, No pizza, and No gelato
No visit to St Peters, No Spanish Steps
My heart is so saddened to the deepest depths.
So with little time to spare, we made our plan B
We are flying on Tuesday - off to Hawaii
Tomorrow I will shop for our beach get away
and we will plan a trip to Rome for another day...

I assumed he was done once he finished his peas, carrots, strawberries, hummus and chicken. I asked him if he was all done, and he shook his head no. I opened the refrigerator and asked him if he wanted grapes. He shook his head no. I asked if he wanted guacamole, and he smiled. So we had guacamole. I then asked if he was all done and he shook he head no again. Having finished the guac, I opened the fridge and asked if he wanted yogurt. He smiled...and then finished a Yo Baby Yogurt. I asked if he was all done, and he shook his head no....again. At this point, we were running out of options. I opened the fridge, and he didn't like what we had left to offer. Luckily he smiled when I offered him a piece of bread. Finally, after devouring the bread, he gave me his "all done" signal. Our fridge is barren.
I loved tonight. It was so fun to watch him commuicate. He knew what I was asking and he knew what he wanted and also what he didn't want. He is turning into a little boy!
On another note, when he was eating the guacamole...he put his fingers in his mouth and pulled out the little piece of tomato. He then pounded it on the high chair tray as if to say "I HATE TOMATOES!" It was funny how he could pick such a little piece out of the mix. I hated tomatoes growing up... I probably did the same kind of thing to my parents. I love seeimg his little personality shine through.
Good night my sweet little bottomless pit baby!

Now that that trick is perfected, he has moved on to hat stealing. Note in the picture below, Chad is not wearing his glasses. Will started his hat trick after again demonstrating his glasses removal trick.
Total poker face...

For the past few months, Will has been climbing on the first step of the stairs and shaking the gate. He loves it I thought is was cute until today when he started trying to open the gate. He knows where the levers are... we are just hoping he doesn't figure it out anytime soon. (Luckily, I think they are even tricky for adults!)
For now, we may just keep Will in the ball pit!
