Will updates

Will had his 15 month check-up yesterday. This checkup was a month overdue, but better late than never!
Stats: Height: 34" - 95th percentile
Weight: 30 3/4 lbs - 96th percentile
Head: 19" - 97th percentile
He's very proportionate. The nurses were joking that he's a future Husker player. :) He also had to get 3 shots and handled them like a little champ. While he was waiting for the doctor to come in, he was just standing around with just his diaper on. Then he very deliberately removed his diaper and peed on the floor. It was so intentional. We couldn't stop laughing. So after we were finished at the clinic we went to Target and got Will a potty chair and pull-ups. It seems a little early for this, we'll see how he handles it. This morning after breakfast, he sat on the toilet and managed to "pop a little gas" and poo a bit...YIPPIEEEE!!!! My goal is to get him fully trained by the time the baby is born. It may be too ambitious, only time will tell!

On the potty! (sad little band-aids from the shots.)
Will is also quite the chatterbox...every day he jibber jabbers more and more and gestures as he's "talking." Some words in his vocabulary: baby, mommy, daddy, banana -"nana," ball - "baaaa," cat - "caaaa," all done - "ah daaaa," more - "maaa," blue - "booo," yellow "yaya," and sometimes he can manage "I love you" and "Grandma and Grandpa." He has his moments where he'll repeat just about anything you ask him to say.

Other cute things:

When I ask him "Where's the baby?" he points to his tummy, but if I say "Where's Mommy's baby?" he lifts my shirt and pokes my bellybutton.

If he wants to watch a cartoon (almost always the Veggie Tales) he marches over to the TV and turns it on and says "Vaa vaaa vaaa." I guess that's Veggie Tales in baby speak.

He's getting very good at following instructions and will put away toys if we ask him. He's also good at the instruction, "Take this _____ to Daddy." And he'll march over and give him whatever he was supposed to.

He can identify his nose, hair, ears, mouth, eyes, hair, tummy and feet. We're also working on identifying red, blue, green and yellow. Blue and yellow seem to be his favorite.
