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!

A First

Friday night Will and I experienced a first together---our first hockey game. Carl got free tickets through this program for the military and we went to the Memphis Riverkings hockey game (minor league team). It was a fun time and I would definitely recommend a hockey game if you've never been and don't mind a little fighting once in a while. :) Thankfully it wasn't too crowded or too loud. I only had to cover Will's ears when they made goals, but other than that it was pretty good. I took a few pictures for Will's scrapbook, to provide a memory of his first hockey game ever. We couldn't use the flash during the game, which is why we don't have the hockey rink in the background behind us (too bright, making us too dark).

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. :)

The Best Sound in the World

Will has become ticklish, which is a day we have been waiting for. He has been for a while but just lately we have been able to figure out how we did it and repeat it. Pretty fun. I think a baby's/child's laugh is really the best sound in the world. So, I of course had to take video. As usual you have have to forgive the angle, as I had to hold the camera and tickle at the same time. : ) Enjoy the laughter!

From The Beginning To Now

I just saw this picture of Will in his first week of life, and was amazed at how much he has changed in just 3 months. Here is a quick comparison of then and now. The "now" picture is one taken while he is on the move, so not terribly clear, but it is a face I see often. : ) He doesn't slow down too much anymore, and is quite animated. He is such a precious blessing that continues to bring us immeasurable joy daily.
