This has been an exciting month! There are several fun, new things that Will is learning this month. We attempted to start some table foods at the beginning of the month and for the first few weeks it was a little rough! Will eagerly picked up the food and put it in his mouth (or let me feed it to him), but he wouldn't seem to swallow anything. Several times now I have dug noodles, green beans and chicken out of his mouth WAY after dinner was over. But, if at first you don't succeed, try try again! And we did. After several weeks, he is doing much better! He is now eating a variety of foods! He even got to experience a few TINY bites of a Chick-fil-A nugget! Mmmmm!
My little guy has also started the army crawl in the past week. He was slow moving at first, but after a couple of days he is much quicker and it is now time to baby proof the house! Yesterday, I caught him with his hand in the fireplace and a mouthful of tiny fireplace rocks. YIKES...something else that I had to dig out of his mouth! His 3rd tooth has popped up in just the past couple of days....all on the bottom!

We must bribe him to sit in the chair!
"Can you see my teeth?"
"Are you talking to me?"
What a BIG boy with his feet on the ground!
Wasn't it just a few months ago that I could lay him across the seat of the chair???
"Mommy, I'm comin' to get ya!"
"Ready or not, here I come!"
