Chatty Charlie

Will's new favorite words (his own spin on them, of course):

TOWEL
CLOCK
TOE
CLOTHES
CLOSET
MORE

His new favorite signs:

-light
-food
-what?
-where?*

*When Dave saw Will signing"where," which consists of wagging your finger back and forth, he asked "Who kept saying NO to Will today?"

Will's new favorite things:
  • any first birthday cards with dogs or Cookie Monster on the cover
  • the lifelike stuffed beagle toy I purchased, of which Dave is afraid because "its eyes look possessed"
  • flowers--specifically, sniffing them and saying "Ahhhhh"
  • pulling all his clean clothes out of the closet and throwing them in his hamper
  • pulling all our dirty clothes out of the hamper and onto the floor
  • pulling our socks out of our drawers and then receiving applause for putting them "Back IN"
Will's new favorite book:

OK, this one is a story in itself. I went to the religious kids' book section to get some appropriate reading material to distract/engage Will at church. While perusing a couple of cute children's prayer books, Will grabbed a board book called "Jesus Loves Me" off the shelves and proceeded to tear off the corner with his teeth. It was what you would call a forced purchase.

However, the book is actually very cute. It features a bear family (mom, dad, baby bear), which is Will's favorite kind of family, picture-wise, and the illustrations are nicely drawn. There's a lot of repetition in the actual text of the book (can you guess what keeps getting repeated? Hint: it's in the title), but overall I think Will chose (chewed?) this book wisely.

THE END.

As long as will doesn't pull his clothes out of the hamper and wear them to his sons christening you'll be fine. Right Dave??
