Today at 4:57 in the PM, I rolled over. Mama had been telling me for weeks that I need to roll over, but I didn’t want to. Today, she put me on my tummy and was playing with me. Then she moved over to my side and said, “Come on, William, roll over and see mama.” She was also holding this dragon toy that my friend Annika gave me. I usually ignore her when she does these things, but I really wanted to see that dragon. So I just rolled on over. Before I even knew what happened, she had scooped me up and was hugging and kissing me. Maybe I’ll do it again tomorrow, who knows.

At first, I had hair longer than Daddy’s.

Rob & William

Then it went away, and he caught up to me.

No pleasing him

Then I caught back up to him.

Two peas in a pod

We stayed even for a while.

Again with the bright lights

Then mine grew longer.

Smiles is my middle name

And wilder.

Think green

And wilder.

5 months

And wilder.

Where did he get that hair?

At this rate, Daddy will never catch back up. I’ve also heard Mommy talk about how she’s never going to let me cut it.

I learned a new trick. I can blow bubbles with my lips. Here, you can check it out.

Mom and Pop get a real kick out of it. When they giggle at me, it makes me giggle too. I’m a riot.

I have a tendency to be pretty darn adorable even when I’m trying my hardest not to be.

I had my final first Christmas this afternoon in Danville with Grandma Barb’s family. We all had great fun. My grandparents, great grandparents, aunts and uncles, and great aunts and great uncles gave me many wonderful gifts.

Thanks so much to everyone for making my first Christmas a memorable one (well, for my parents at least).
