We recently started Will on cereal. He is 4 months today, and was sleeping through the night and then stopped. This happened once before and we tried cereal, but decided he didn't quite need it/wasn't quite ready. Recently he has started showing other signs that he is ready. So here is our second attempt at starting a cereal regime, and he took it much better this time, though still makes those icky faces. :) I am also happy to report that he slept through the night again after this feeding. Yea!

Will was such a good boy the whole game, just sitting on Mommy's lap, content to watch all that was going on around him. As you can see here, he is trying to look back toward the game or whoever is sitting in front of us. :)

Will loves to chat with Mommy and Daddy. I keep trying to get this on camera, but every time I try he finds the camera looking at him and stops talking, mesmerized by it. It is too funny. Anyhow, here is what I could catch of him chatting up Daddy the other day.

There was also another couple dedicating their 3rd child to the Lord. They also have a little boy and he was born 5 days after Will. The church gave us each a personalized plaque stating our commitment and a little new testament Bible for Will. Also, as a big surprise, my parents and sister showed up for the dedication! We had NO IDEA that they were going to be there and were overjoyed to see them there for the occasion. It was a lovely day and a great commitment before the Lord, one that we will continually think of and remind ourselves of daily as we strive to raise our child in a godly home for the Lord.
During the dedication Pastor held Will in order to pray for and over him, and I was personally praying beforehand that he would just stay peacefully asleep and praise God, he did!

A few friends and relatives gave Will outfits and accessories to celebrate the season, and since they all live far away, I wanted to post pictures of him in them so they could see him wearing their gifts. Besides, it's just so fun to see him in them! : )
As a warning--I had a hard time deciding on pictures, so there are a few in each outfit...yes, I know, I am a first time Mommy--I know you all are thinking it! ; )
Pumpkin outfit, with socks and hat to match!
An action shot. : )
Though he is a little blown out in this picture, it cracked me up, so I had to post it.
And finally--our little zebra. : ) He was not in as much of a smiling mood when this was taken, but I still love it!

Recently, this week actually, we have discovered that Will has started to do "social smiling" (that's what the doctor called it), meaning he smiles back at you when you smile at him, not just randomly. Of course this is great fun for us, and even better than that, my sister discovered a noise that actually makes him smile and even give a little baby laugh a little once in a while. It is great. He has started to "talk" much more lately as well. He is a very alert and active baby, with quite a bit of wake time throughout the day. Please excuse the poor video making--I was holding the camera myself with him on my lap, trying not to block my mouth so he could see it. There is a good little "laugh" about half-way through, so it's worth toughing out. : )

This one almost looks choreographed, as they look like they are moving in unison. Simon had been asleep for a while, so wasn't bothered by all the hubbub.
I love this one--it looks like they are holding hands. Sweet. My theory is that Will was trying to wake Simon so that they could find out how to get out of that crib, as he was not too happy about this photo shoot. It will be fun to watch these two cuties grow up together. What memories will be made! : )
