The Cute Things He Says

Every day William says such cute things. I can't possibly remember all of them. This morning as I was leaving for work-- after the usual "bye byes" he said "bye love.... careful"... it was adorable. Last night I was asking him "William, what's your name?". He used to answer "bean bean" for some reason, now he usually says "baby" but last night he said "Cooper" then "Pooper".. then repeated whatever name I said. It was fun to see how well he could pronounce different names. He was best at saying "Josh". He didn't seem to want to say "William".. but he did whisper something like "Wih-um".

William Turns 2!

Today our little baby turned 2 years old. We can hardly believe it. Shortly after he woke up he asked for "bean beans" (green beans). A few minutes later he saw the left over birthday cake his Grandma had for him and he said "Happy Birthday!". He also asked for his favorite drink "shocky bock" (chocolate milk). Here are some pictures of him eating green beans and birthday cake......

From Mommy to Mom

A lot can change in a day. Back around Thanksgiving, William suddenly stopped calling me Momma and started calling me Mommy. That was pretty exciting. Today my new name is "Mom". It is so grown up and I'm not ready for it. Maybe when he's sad or hurt he'll call me Mommy again. If that's what it takes, I'll be happy to stay "Mom".

Baby's First Haircut

Is he still a baby? I guess not. William turns 2 on Sunday (Feb. 10th) and had his very first haircut last Friday..... finally. We loved his curls and had a hard time parting with them. We took him to Shear Madness in Zona Rosa. They are a kids haircut place- and he didn't complain a bit. They did a nice job-- didn't take away his curls but gave him a neater look with a little style, and got the hair out of his eyes. He looks more grown up with his hair cut, but I guess he'll always be my baby.

Snow Day

We got a lot of snow today so I worked from home. Kind of difficult with a 2 year old running around. Josh went to his granparents house to shovel snow-- so it was just me and William for several hours. Besides getting some work done, it was an eventful day.

I set William in his high chair with a bowl of ravioli. I heard the usual eating noises for a while, then things got really quiet. I went to check on him and found him fast asleep........

Later I was in the living room on the computer, and William was playing in the kitchen. I heard some strange noises which I ignored for a little while then I went in there to check on him. He had pulled a chair up to the kitchen island. He had a big cup of water and he put into the water: my cell phone, my watch, a pack of aaa batteries... and he was stiring it all together with a toothbrush. My phone is pretty well fried so Josh got a new one (free!) today and I get his old one.
I wonder what he was trying to make.....
