Teething Time again!

It's been a busy week at work for Alan and I. And we've had a rough week at night with William. Poor William.....teething time again. He has another molar coming in and has been waking up many times during the night. Poor guy has just been exhausted in the mornings from it. Next week William hits 15 months! Time for another doctor appt and see how much he has grown.

William really enjoys his bath time....he loves playing with his little basketball hoop and pirate boats. I think we found a new theme for his bathroom upstairs too- Mickey Mouse bath stuff on clearance on disney shopping.com! Guess we will be painting soon, maybe this weekend over the wallpaper and ordering some new stuff to make his bathroom more kid friendly.

William still loves playing with cars- here he has two at the same time- always multi-tasking, that boy!
We also got a kitchen set on clearance after Christmas for $20! Little did I know it had like a billion pieces to put together until I opened it, no wonder it was $20. good thing mommy is handy! he seems to enjoy it, but not as much as the real kitchen! We had to stick it in the hallway near our bedroom, the rest of the house is so full of toys already!



And lastly, he still loves the stairs. He is very good at climbing them and has never fell. We only let him go up when we are walking right behind him. otherwise the stairs are blocked off and off limits!

Back to the real world

Well the new year is already busy for the Peters family. William is thoroughly enjoying his plethera of toys from Christmas. He enjoys all of them!! William is continuing to get back on schedule at day care/montesorri. He also has one of his front molars already coming in, so we've had a few fussy nights. He really loves reading his books and playing. He is saying more sounds and words now- I think the current list is dada, baba, ball, book, light, uh-oh and beyond. Uh-oh is his favorite. He is making new sounds now, so I think maybe it won't be long until 'mama', we can hope, right? We visited the Dallas World Aquarium on Sunday before returning to the real world and work. William seemed to enjoy it. I think he will have a great time at the zoo this spring. He got tired near the end of it and just wanted out of his stroller to walk/run around. He was especially interested in the steps and wanted to just walk up and down the steps with my help. always the little things right?

Alan and William in the shark walk through- notice the huge shark behind them to the left. Will had a great time running through here.

Checking out the fish!
