It’s been a while since our last Will-fest…so I thought this would be a fine time to celebrate a few of the photos that have been lingering on my hard drive.
Will is highly skilled at stacking. I think I mentioned this before.
He’s up to 17 blocks…which is more than I can do. And he gets all Michael-Jordan with it too…tongue out when he’s slam-dunking-his-awesomeness on those blocks.
Will is also obsessed with cleaning. I have no idea why since monkey-didn’t-see-but-monkey-do-anyways. Whenever someone else vacuums, it’s like his personal mission to teach them the superiority of his mad cleaning skills.
Everyday when Jer pulls in the driveway (it’s like 6:30 or 7 by the time he gets home), we wait in the driveway to greet him and give him big (sometimes muddy) hugs….and then Will asks for two things – “goff ball” or “dive car”.
Will is also learning the skills of facial communication. I call this the “whatch-you-talkin-bout-Willis” face…which actually is quite funny because he thinks I call him Willis and he responds with ‘noffin’.
Gorilla face…don’t think he’s got that concept yet.
Besides cleaning, he also LOVES to cook. How in the world did I have Marty freakin Stewart as a son?!
The only problem is that he also likes to sample the uncooked goods…..fine when it’s spaghetti sauce – not so hot when it’s raw eggs. I tell him “no honey, that’s got yucky eggs” and he says “no yucky mommy – eggs….hmmmM!”
We struggle with getting food into the Tinkler (which is weird since he loves to make food – just not eat it. And especially weird since he was 9lbs 11 oz at birth – I mean….he comes from good eaters!). So any chance we get to give him calorie laden food, we jump.
That explains why I take more photos of him eating than normal folks would of their kid.
I can’t help it though. I figure it’s my way of celebrating the small accomplishments….one spoonful at a time.
Perhaps my favorite photo of May…
I kinda love this one too….for totally different reasons. This is what he does when we promise him ice cream….just jams it all in there and says “AWWDO” which in chubby bunny language means “all done”.
We have been doing a lot of painting lately. He’s actually pretty good since he became obsessed with circles.
Don’t get me wrong – the kid knows a circle and how to wield a paint brush but he still can’t count to three. He says “One - three – W” and then laughs hysterically. Is there any chance he’s a genius and playing pranks on dear old mom? Yeah. I didn’t think so.
Over Memorial day weekend, we made these pretzels dipped in chocolate and then rolled in sprinkles. They are kinda addicting. Thus says the pregnant girl who thinks all food is addicting right now.
One of my absolute favorite things is to sneak up on Will when he’s watching a movie. He’s had a fever this past week so there has been lots of Jungle Book 2 at our house.
The positions he’s in to watch are my favorite. It’s literally a surprise every time.
Anyhoo – so that’s what we’ve been up to…you know…besides assembling patio furniture, hanging light fixtures and sewing curtains. (I know!!!) What have you guys been up to lately?
