The Good, the Bad, and the Just Plain Funny!

Just a few minutes ago we reached a few milestones!

1. The Good- William took the shirt I was going to put on him, held it by the bottom, put his arms in, and pulled it over his head! I had to help him get his hands through the sleeves, he put his elbows through first. But yay! He can already take pants off, he walks out of them, and can take diapers and shoes and socks off. But this is one of the first things he has put on!

2. The Bad- As I was putting his shoes on, I remembered Amanda said it looked like all three boys just had a growth spurt and looked a little older. So I checked William's shoes to see if his feet grew too. (His shoes were starting to get a teeny bit harder to put on.) Sure enough, his toes are about 1/4 inch from the end of his shoes. Meaning that they are starting to squeeze. Nathan has somewhat wider feet at the toes, and we were using Oren's old shoes for him, before we realized they were too narrow and started buying the very pricey wide ones. But his toes look a little squished. We have been super careful with William to not let him wear shoes that are too small. I haven't checked yet, but hopefully we have the next size up in our shoe box.

3. The Just Plain Funny- While I was doing laundry earlier I heard William doing a yell like Tarzan mixed with Braveheart. I looked in the living room and he was running around in circles, yelling his little heart out. He did this for nearly 5 minutes! Just running and yelling, having a great old time. What a wierd, funny little guy!

We have those days, huh? Just goes to show that they really are growing up; the milestones, the fun and those growth spurts. Glad you shared!

Hooray, he'll be able to dress himself soon! Oh dear, time to buy shoes. And William is a funny little guy! I love it when Thomas does stuff like that, yelling and making noise just for the sake of hearing his own voice. So fun. :-)
