Sophia and I took Will out for his first round of trick-or-treating this afternoon. She's been coaching him how how to say it for the past week or so, like the fantastic big sister she is. He toddled after her, climbing up stairs, announcing "tree a tree" and giving a polite "tee you" when the homeowners dropped a piece of candy in his little bucket.

Will, Dave, and I loaded up and headed out to an area flea market this morning. I've been nursing a bug to not just sell new stuff in my shop, but to find cool vintage stuff to re-purpose and craft into some new little thing. Today my laser beam focus was on silver plate.

I got hi... read more

He's developed this new thing where he opens his mouth wide when he sees you eating or drinking, like a little begging baby bird. After seeing that I was enjoying a feast of toothbrush and toothpaste, Will started mooching, so I held the sonic brush up and let him see what it was all about.
Hi! My name is Will. I'm 1 year old, rocking a dapper new haircut, and am standing like a pro.
Will, 2 days shy of his 1st birthday.
