It has been a few weeks since I have updated our blog. We got back from italy/france yesterday and have been relaxing in Alabama with Blaise's family until we get back on Saturday. We had a blast! I will update with photos and more soon!

Nightime Activities

Will loves books! He loves to look at the pictures and turn the pages. His favorite thing to do these days is to hand us a book and then back his fanny into our laps. He signs more as soon as we finish a book, to make sure we get the message to keep going. His favorite books are the Fisher Price Little People flap books.

He has picked up quite a few new words. He can say shoe, ear, eye, ball, book, baby, balloon, da da, ma ma, bye bye, hi, dance, thank you, ba ba (bottle), cheese, uh oh, mmm (tasty), oo oo oo (sound of a monkey), and no. He can do the baby signs for no, more, cookie, bottle, bye bye, dog, and baby.

Will is pretty fearless. This picture is an impressive illustration of his daring prowess. I'm still not sure how he kept from falling and hurting himself here. He loves to climb up and down stairs all by himself. We tried to teach him to go down backwards to be safe, but he won't have any of it. He thinks he should go down the same way we do. Fortunately, his falls in this learning process have been minor. He can now go all the way down the stairs by himself without falling by holding on the rail and walking down like a grown-up.
