William has been talking for a while: saying Mama, Dada, off, on, dog, cat, truck, bus. Now he’s started to articulate the endings of words, such as the -f sound in off. Today he imitated me saying cracker! He is the sweetest, cuddliest baby although the temper tantrums have definitely begun. He always wants to play with dangerous or messy things; fragile glasses, lotion, Chapstick, constantly tries to get into the fridge. When he’s denied he cries and flops on the floor, or runs to the living room to bury his face in the couch and pound his fists on the cushions. Completely adorable.
