Chattering Happy Boy

Kirky & Will are back from their trip to California and I am quite happy. I took Will this morning so Kirky could get a few more hours sleep. We played for a little while and now he's passed out in his swing. Earlier this morning he was chatting up a storm so I had Meg give me a call so I could share the experience. Then I came up with the idea to record this session using my microphone/headphone unit and came up with this. Enjoy it as much as I have.

Will's First Plane Trip

I was absolutely thrilled this morning to see a new slew of pics of Will emailed to me by Kirky from CA last night. He looks like he's having a great time and his facial expressions continue to get more and more.....active.

William Speaks.....

Well, not quite. But Kirky left me a fantastic present while she and Will are in CA for the week that I'm addicted to .

Ch-ch-ch-changes

One of the most wonderful things about having a child is watching them grow before your eyes - and at this age every day brings something new with Will. He's starting to smile here and there - and not from being tickled from passing gas! He's concentrating on objects & patterns more - his daddy especially likes it when he looks into his eyes. He's starting to grasp things - he accidently kicked his Whoosit up into his hands and caught it the other day.

One of the more cute things is when he's having "tummy time" and he flails his legs like a frog on his belly. Yet put your hand behind them and he slides across said belly like a seal on a waterslide. Turtles - frogs - seals....quite the menagerie.

He's growing stronger every day too. For the last month he's been able to hold up his head - he's even doing assisted standing now. Not bad for a 7 week old.

Last weekend was his first long car trip - we got back from his second late last night where we were showing him off to his Great-Grandmother & friends. Friday he takes his first plane flight as he and his mom visit family on the Left Coast.

I haven't done much with our video camera but as soon as I figure out how to "dump" the video, I'll stick some clips online.

The Giggling Wiggler

So it seems you all have way too much time on your hands if you visit Will's site more than you visit mine. At least mine it updated more often, despite the fact that I'm not nearly as entertaining and not remotely as cute as my little boy.

Anyway, I've heard your plea for more updates so I'll start with pictures from July 4th weekend which we spent in Toms River, NJ with our friend Melissa. She took these two gorgeous pictures of our son in accompanying tutle hat, (thanks go to his cousin Christopher), and adorable "Mind the Gap" onesie, (many thanks go to Auntie Mellie, Auntie Meg, and Auntie Kristin for bringing it back from London for him.)
