Daddy and William spent 5 hours out and about on Sunday, playing at various parks. William is loving being outside again so much and so are we! I can't wait for the weather to make the full leap into spring, I am ready to open up the house and breathe the fresh air again. We grilled last night and stayed on the deck till it got too dark to be out. We spent Saturday evening shopping for books for William to open on his birthday. Jason and I get so tired of reading the same ones over and over, and with all the reading we do, it takes a lot of books to keep the rotation exciting. We got him some very cute ones and a couple of science books, one on nocturnal animals and one on artic animals. He has been into the story of the 3 Billy Goats Gruff, including jumping from one couch to the other so he can eat grass on the opposite hill, and get "nice and fat". Too cute! So, I got him a copy of that. His fear seems to have greatly improved over the last week. He is back to normal, sleeping through the night, in his own bed again, so we are all happy again. As for little Charles, he is moving a lot, growing bigger by the day, and seems to be doing well. We will have a new Ultrasound a week from today to monitor his growth, but I doubt there will be anything wrong. William is 3 this Saturday, and I am still stunned! This year has gone by so fast, and he really seems like a little boy now, no longer a trace of baby about him. Wild!
