He went through a sloth period this summer though, where he was obsessed with them. He would say, "Guess what animal I am? I do nuffing and I do nuffing." (A sloth).
One afternoon I was lying down with him for his nap, and in his sleep, he turned toward my face and whispered, "I'm a slofffffff."
He says hello to EVERYONE and it's funny how you can stop liking certain people you've always been fond of when they don't respond nicely to your toddler. I LOVE the people who stop, look him in the eye and say, "Hello! How are you, Will?" But there are so many darn adults who barely notice him and when he tries to carry on a conversation, brush him off or interrupt him. It is probably partially pregnancy hormones, but I was telling Steven the other day that I almost erupted into tears when Will was trying to talk to a friend of ours and she cut him off and walked away.
Now, to all you parents who now or down the road will have a child who gags and throws up every time you try to get them to eat a fruit or vegetable... your pain will end!! Will FINALLY eats pretty much everything I put in front of him. He doesn't always like it, but he finishes all of his veggies (he still really hates most fruit so I only make him try fruit, since I would rather he get the nutrition from vegetables anyway).
Today we went to Trader Joe's. We almost never go there, except during the holidays. He had never seen child-sized shopping carts before and couldn't stop talking about them the whole drive there. When we got there, he immediately started zooming through the store. "I fink I need bananas!" he put a huge bunch in his cart.
"Now Mom," he said very loudly, "Where are the WEDGIES?"
Ha! That is how he says "veggies" and it cracks me up every time.
I took him over and had him get some carrots. "Mom," even louder, "I REALLY FINK WE NEED LOTS OF WEDGIES!"
I love that boy.
