After 15 1/2 long months...Will is FINALLY getting a little bit more snuggly! It has been torture for Jordan and me to have a son that pushes away every hug and slaps away every kiss. We are like the snuggle Queen and King, and having an offspring that is NOTHING like us in that way is really hard and slightly ruins our self esteem! We have been inticing him with a weekly Schaefer Family Movie Night. We make smoothies in our VitaMixer and pop popcorn. We curl up to a good movie with Jordan's childhood car blanket, and Will is learning that it is indeed a very snuggly blanket! He comes right over and plops in our laps and indulges in as much popcorn as he can grab in his fist. When he wants some smoothie, he comes over to our laps and opens his mouth like a little bird. It is adorable! He LOVES Schaefer Family Movie Night. As a result, he is learning to sit in our laps without us chasing him and putting him there! He is also learning to sit! He normally prefers standing while watching movies or playing with his toys.
His 15 month check-up went well. He weighs 26 lbs, 6 oz (75%) and is 32.25 inches (82%). His favorite things to do now are: turn light switches on and off while climbing on his rocking chair, go "rocky rocky rock" on his rocking chair, stack cans into a tower, play downstairs on his equipment, "dance dance dance" with his feet (it is so dang cute...we are attempting to get a video), read books in his room, hit the blue copy bottom on our printer so paper moves through the machine, walk with our backscratcher all over the house, put himself in his baby swing, put shapes in his tupperware ball, play with my sizzix machine handle, and get chased all over the house.
He is so fun at this age and actually does stuff to make us laugh. He is adorable. He is started to talk more after about a month strike. His favorite words right now are "no" and "all done". I was hoping his "no no no" phase would have been over since he always said that before the strike, but "no no no" I was wrong!
I can't believe it is almost two years to the day (Nov. 20) that we found out we were pregnant with Will. What a life changing day. We are so grateful for our little treasure. He is growing into an adorable little boy!
