On his own.
And he thought it was funny!
Loli took him to the pool. He was sitting down with the water up to his neck which he loved...and then he saw a toy at the bottom of the pool in front of him. When he couldn't reach it, and went forward...underwater...to get it. Loli quickly pulled him up since it was suprising that he would just go underwater like that, and he just started laughing. When she put him in the water, he did it again.
I took him to the pool today and he loved it. He loved walking around in the water, playing with other kids' toys, and standing up by the water falls. He has no fear!
So my fears of having a kid who hated the pool/water park have subsided. Our first visit to the pool this year was spent opening and closing the gate for those coming in and out. Anytime I would put Will near the water, he would walk right back to the gate.
I am so thankful for the break through as there aren't many places besides the pool that I want to be when it is 100 degrees outside!

Will loves sticks. Typically you get an instant smile like this one when you hand him a stick. Now that I have a little boy, I find myself noticing sticks and looking for "good" sticks when we are on walks. There are good sticks and bad sticks. Good sticks usually have less branches and are fairly sturdy on their own. Bad sticks are usually small and more likely to be eaten. I'm not sure if Will would agree on the good vs. bad definition, but luckily he can't debate the issue with his current vocabulary of trash, trash can and Gie (Maggie).

Yesterday was Will's 14 month birthday. And as usual, this was my favorite month ever. Will seems to know so many words and he seems to understand everything we are saying.
At 14 months, Will:
* is walking!
* loves trucks. He likes them more than cars. He says "vroom vroom" when he sees a truck or when we talk about going outside.
* points at the sky when he hears an airplane.
* loves the broom that Rosa gave him.
* loves his little pool on the back deck. He crawls right into it and can play by himself for long periods of time.
* had his second haircut
* now says "trash" vs. just "tra" from last month. He loves to put things in the trash can.
