It sure is hard...

having such a BIG noggin'.
I put Wil's hat on before making the long commute home each night. By the time we get there, his hat looks like this! His Dad has the same problem. Big head. Small hat.

Wil & I got to see our besties, Liz & Bronson on Thanksgiving. We had a great time. Our boys are growing up so fast!

All I want for Christmas...

is my two front teeth! At the same time too, please!
(That's the best shot I could get!)

A Day at the Park!

We decided to take advantage of this 60 degree November weather with a trip to the park. A nice park was just built down the street from our house in August; we're pretty lucky to have one so close. Wil's finally big enough to try a few things out too!

He loved the swings! He'd giggle every time he went backwards.

He also enjoyed the sand, but we had to leave this spot a little early... Wil enjoyed putting it in his mouth too. He actually screamed at me when I picked him up. Apparently he didn't mind sand in the mouth, but the MOM DID!

Here he is at the bottom of the slide.

Gravel had fun too. He went straight for the puddle (as usual).

Assume the Position!

My friend Lana taught me how to finagle Wil into the crawling position. "It's all about motor development, really", she told me. "Just keep working on it and he'll figure out how to do it all by himself soon enough"! So, Adam and I spend some time each night making Wil do this:
No. Not the drooling part... he does that completely on his own. Yuck!

Generally speaking, he's not much of a fan of this position. He grunts a lot and rocks back and forth; he does not know what we want from him (can't you tell by the facial expression). But, one of these days he's going to take off for sure. WHY we WANT him to CRAWL... wer're not quite sure of. I guess it just means he's learning and growing and changing. I'm sure we'll be kicking ourselves soon enough. You know, when we have to child-proof EVERYTHING. Yeah, I'll check back in with you then.
