Another Will Anecdote




Will is helping me unload the dishwasher. This is particularly thrilling for him because he is getting to handle knives! Each knife he puts away is accompanied by play-by-play commentary: "I have a big sharp knife," then, "I put the big sharp knife in the drawer."

Sophie, my little instigator, notes that Will is having a good time and must intervene. She takes a fork from the silverware caddy.

Will confiscates the fork and, remarkably, hands her a spoon as a replacement unprompted. "I gave her a spoon" he tells me.

"Yes, because you are such a good big brother to her. You are so nice."

"Yes, I had to take the fork away because I was afraid she was going to poke a hole in her forehead."

Will looks SO BIG in these pictures! I love the Willisms you include on the blog. They're all entirely too funny.

And sweet Sophie's angel wings are adorable! She looks like a sweet little angel!

Hope you guys have a great Thanksgiving! Are you heading to GA or to Chi-town?

With love,
Shelly

I guess Will is protective older brother! That's cute! I liked the pictures of Will & Sophie too. She looks cute in her "angel wings".

Um, isn't that exactly why you take forks away from babies?
