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).

    I love your blog and this is totally random but I am telling you to go get a pretty pillowcase for all those hospital pictures when the baby is born. It’s all in the details girlfriend. You can thank me later.

    I found this fantastic blog through another blog that a friend of mine created about a year ago. I started following your blog about 2 months ago, and I think you are doing a fabulous job with this blog. You seem to be a very cute couple (even though I don’t know you :D ), and I wish you the best with your new addition to the family.

    Do you have a link for the new baby yet? I thought I stumbled across some weekly pics but haven’t been able to find them since. Hope you are feeling well! We are due with #2 Nov 19th (#1 will be 20 months on Nov 3…yikes!) so it’s been fun being about as far along as you and checking progress. Take care and best of luck!
