Well the weather is finally starting to get nicer out so we're having a lot of fun playing outside with Will. Last weekend we did a benefit fun run for UM Children's Hospital with our friends Kate, Joe, and Regan (one of Will's many girlfriends). We didn't finish in last place! Then, a monumental event, Will went disc golfing with dad for the first time on Sunday. I don't think he had any idea what was going on but he seemed interested. It helped that I gave him his own little disc to suck on. We even took a walk to a park and went on the swings for awhile. I'm really looking forward to it being nice enough to go camping - we should be able to do some good hiking with the baby backpack. Then we'll have some great pictures to share I'm sure.

The cats were at Grandma and Grandpa's in Madison the last few weeks so we wouldn't have to worry about them when we traveled to Lincoln. So when Will and Erin went to Madison, being in his "grab everything within reach" stage, he rediscovered the cats. He has a great time when he sees the cats - he'll laugh at them and can kind of can pet them, but it's obvious that it's just a few short months before the cats will be terrorized all the time.
Julian is our friend who lives down the street from us. He is a sophomore in highschool and had the interesting assignment for his health class to take care of an infant for an hour and ask a few questions about what it means to be a parent. It turns out we had lot of advice to give, as if we really know what we're doing!

Today we have another first in Will's life - he'll be somewhere without mom and dad for a whole day. We found a very nice woman who conveniently lives in our neighborhood and has been running a daycare out of her home for many years. I dropped him off there today on my way to work. He was confused but wasn't upset. There were 4 other children there who seemed very nice and polite and I introduced Will to his new playmates. They were excited to have a baby to play with (these children seemed to be between 1 and 2 1/2 years old). It's hard for Erin and I but he'll only go to daycare for one day a week, and it's important for him to have some social interaction, and for Erin to have a day where she can get things done. If any of you out there get a chance, maybe give Erin a call sometime today because she's having a bit of a tough time. Thanks!

Today was a ridiculously nice day (70 degrees) so Will got to spend a lot of time outside. Since Erin and Will are going to Madison for the better part of a week tomorrow (for Lauren Hyer's wedding shower), we decided to have a special afternoon - we walked to the store and bought some nice steaks to grill. So here's Will's first lesson in how to tend a grill.

Erin and several Red Cross employees and volunteers put in a lot of time organizing this event, which was last night. It went well. Will wore his little tuxedo and was very popular. Unfortunately it went on way past Will's bedtime so he and I had to leave early to avoid a complete breakdown. The first picture is Will with Mikey, who was also wearing a stylish tux, and the next picture is Will with the three co-chairs of the event, Abby, mom, and Jenni.
