The Little EnginEER That Could

Half the pictures I take of Will end up looking like the one above. That is because the boy never stops climbing. Not ever.

We noticed a couple of months ago that our child was also strangely eager to check out "how things work." He'd flip over his bottle to inspect its underbelly, or he'd turn his toy drum upside down, ignoring the top (which is apparently SO BORING with its bright, flashing screen and its red numbers and letters and that dull-as-can-be MUSIC) in order to examine--what else?--the battery case.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the case of My Genes v. Dave's Genes. Guess who's dominating the scoreboard?

No, this is not staged. Will actually sat down and methodically flipped over his walker so that he could inspect and spin its wheels. He does this all the time now, with that focused stare locked on his face.

I'm so sorry Joanna. I'll try to visit more often so he doesn't turn into his dad.
