all about Will

I once heard that the description of a boy is noise with dirt on it. 

That’s our Will. 

He’s a handful of two-almost-three-year-old-noise-and-dirt…with one heck of a throwing arm and a desire to be just like daddy.  Sure, he’s growing up to be just like his parents but we won’t hold it against him :)    

We documented our journey from niave DINKs to frazzled sleep-deprived parents here on the ole blog…so you can actually go back and visit old posts to read all about everything from our big pregnancy reveal (yay for being knocked up!) to FAQ to his nursery transformation (that brought us fifteen seconds of fame on the now-cancelled-but-never-far-from-our-hearts Nate Berkus Show).
