Never a dull moment

There's never a dull moment when you're almost 2 and everything is a toy, even an empty diaper box! Whatever we do, Will wants to do it too- cooking, cleaning, working on the computer, and even shaving like Daddy! It's cute when Greg puts a little shaving cream on Will, and Will loves it, but it's kind of weird to me when afterward my baby smells like Barbarsol!

Yesterday Will played in the snow for really the first time. What can I say, aren't these boys just too cute?

Here are some pictures from Halloween and Thanksgiving. Will was a monkey (note the banana in his pocket). He loved all the walking when we went Trick-or-Treating with Grandma Tish and caught on to the idea of getting candy at each house really quick. Luckily he's young enough that once we got home and the bag of candy disappeared he didn't notice. He did get a few treats though.

Will loved watching all Mommys big cousins and uncles play dodge ball at the church on Thanksgiving. He wanted to play so much he kept trying to jump off the stage!

Will is such a good little boy, but I can certainly see a little bit of 2-year old temperment starting to emerge. It usually only lasts a minute or two though. He loves seeing the Christmas lights around town and is very good with the tree.
We had another doctor's appointment yesterday and they said the baby was measuring 4 days early. They said that's not significant enough to change the due date, but I have a feeling it's only a matter of time. A few months ago he measured 1 day early, the next month he was 2 days early, and now 4. Based on how things went with William, and how big Greg and I both are, I think the timer on this kid may go off 2-4 weeks early. I just hope I somehow go into labor naturally that early because I don't want to be induced again, but I also don't want to wait until the end of March and have a 10 pound baby!

Funny note

During the day I take care of Joseph, a little boy in our ward. He is 7 months old. Occasionally I go to the grocery store with Joseph and William (really the only place I ever go besides the bank!) and as my pregnancy become more obvious it's getting pretty funny. Today was a great example. The checker asked me how old William was, then how old Joseph was, then looked at my bulging belly, and then continued to check our groceries with a bit of a furrowed brow. I could tell she was doing the math in her head. Of course I never tell them Joseph isn't actually my kid, I just let people think I have 2 kids under 2 and another on the way!
