Will's World, Will's World... Party on. Excellent!

A news update, hot off the press, from Will's World...

While Mama was away, he took the first HUGE step towards potty training. There is hope, y'all.

Speech therapy was a BIG success, again while Mama was away. Ate cookie crumbs, some pureed mac & cheese and spontaneously took drinks from his sippy cup without being prompted -- even using the juice as a chaser to get rid of something "distasteful" (a peach) in his mouth.

Taking a bath one night last week before I left, we were playing with the ubiquitous bathtub toys that fill the bathroom. I asked Will casually what color the little lobster toy was that we were messing with. After a beat to process, he said, clear as a bell "That is bwue." And gosh darn it, he was right.

I'm counting my blessings right now -- they may be little to some, but to us, they're monumental. Rock on, my darling child. Rock on.
