Random threads of Willaness
Someone has learned that she can jump in her crib while holding onto the top rail. We used to encourage her to move her arms and splash a bit in the bathtub, but now her enthusiasm gets the floor soaked. She says thank you whenever we hand something to her. Or she hands something to us. She has eaten only peaches at lunch time 2 days in a row. When we scan through our photos on Snapfish, she rocks back, points and yells, "DA" at herself. She points out Jim and Arlo in photos. In a large group photo, she picked out my dad. She loves to lift her shirt and tickle her own belly. Jim and I leave the house at the same time. We go our opposite ways on the highway. At the light just before, we are usually stopped next to each other. I put Willa's window down, Jim puts his down. Willa is as excited and surprised to see him every morning as she was when we first started doing this a month ago. "Da-da!" Her legs flail and her voice goes up a few octaves.
