My sweet baby 'Kissy Cheeks'
Will was cracking me up the other night. To start, Will LOVES dogs. He gets so excited whenever he sees them, & I think he thinks he's one of them. So, the other night, I kept asking him what the dog says & then "Ruff"-ing, so he'd know what to do. He totally surprised me when he pointed at the dog (Toodles) & started barking at her. He then got down on all fours & "ruff"-ed - a perfect 11-month-old impersenation. I can't believe how fast my baby's learning & growing up. He can also 'quack,' 'moo,' roar,' & 'baa.' He has also said his first word this week - "Ba" for 'ball.'
Playing w/ Grandma & Carter (one of Will's many cousins - they were born one week apart exactly)
Last night, my brother's family came over for dinner. Will really liked that there was another little boy his age to 'play' with (if you can call trying to poke Wes's eyes out playing).
Will also got this weird rash on his back last night - any ideas what it could be from? I'm nervous he's allergic to something I'm feeding him, but I don't know what it could be.
Last night, it started to rain - one of the first rains of the season. It was so beautiful & it smelled glorious - there's nothing quite like the smell of freshly fallen rain. Will was also able to have his first experience playing in the rain. He'd just barely finished getting ready for bed, but I couldn't resist letting him have his fun.
And this is what we woke up to this morning - isn't it beautiful?:
I also stayed up late last night and finished William's baby quilt. I honestly never thought I'd finish this thing. I started cutting out some of the fabrics when I was pregnant with Will, but set everything aside until one week ago. After finishing my "Belle" quilt, I got a sudden desire to get this baby quilt done. So here it is, & Will already loves playing Peek-a-boo with it. Every time I tried laying it out to get a picture, he'd head straight for it, hence the series of pictures of him playing with my quilt . . . his quilt.
I finally just pinned it to the wall out of the babe's reach. I think this quilt may be my favorite one so far.
