Yep. Young William is off to the races. Despite battling strep this weekend, he is officially fully mobile. No more hand-slapping, forearm-bruising crawling for this little man. No sir! He is on two feet. And he has places. to. go. You best just move on out of his way. Favorite destinations include the toilet, the bathroom door (so he can open and shut it and play peekaboo with you), and the kitchen cabinets (particularly the one with all the dangerous cleaning products in it). I’m totally winning mom of the year.
Also, Will has a love for silverware. As in, he’s not really interested in dinner unless he has a fork. Here’s a video of his stainless steel skillz (with a great cameo from big sis)…
So yeah. He’s growing up at a rapid pace! Such big boy skills!
These two…I can’t. Please tell me they’ll always be best friends. Will is walking (!!!) but he is still unsure of himself. He prefers to hold a hand to get where he wants to go. That hand typically is that of Lucy. She is so excited to help him it makes my heart ache. In this slice of adorableness (see video below), he’s donning her old cupcake-patterned sleep sack and sunglasses (second babies get all the hand-me-downs, gender norms be damned). I actually think walking in the sleep sack slows him down a bit, as he typically just tries to run and then falls flat on his face. I love you my little wild boy! And I love you my doting big girl big sis!
