Although these last few days have been extremely hard on Ben and I, we are so grateful for the time that Will has with us, and we still have a lot of fun with him. I have really noticed his little personality since I’ve been pregnant with him, and to experience how much of a person and spirit he is. He is super cute! And we thank him for making us parents.
Will’s Favorite Things
Believe it or not, our little guy is a Micheal Jackson fan. I know. When I was around 20 weeks, I was feeling him kick for the first couple times. And the first time Ben felt him kick was when we were listing to Man in the Mirror, which made us laugh. I’m not sure if he was kicking to ask us to turn it off, or he was just dancing away, but either way we always think of Baby Will when we listen to that song. I decided to attach it just because it has some good memories for us.
Root beer, root beer is the best thing I have ever had since I first became pregnant, holy smokes I love it. I never liked root beer before i was pregnant I was always a Dr. Pepper girl, but this guy loves the stuff. The only other person i saw who loved root beer just as much was my brother, Brigham. If you ever want to make my day (and Will’s) bring by a bottle of root beer.
This little guy likes a lot of things, but i’m pretty sure his all-time favorite is Lord of the Rings. He got that from his dad for sure. Ben and I decided to watch The Fellowship of the Ring one night, and he kicked so much. Any time I get scared when I don’t feel him move for awhile, Ben turns on the music from Lord of the Rings and he starts moving again. Before we knew he was a boy, he was already loving these movies, my mom would say; “That’s such a boy thing, he’s definitely a boy.” And there you have it folks, a baby boy.
Pictures of Will
Some benefit to having a lot of doctor visits to see if your baby is okay, is getting a lot of ultrasound pictures!
Here is a profile shot, of Will’s face.
Some proof that he is a boy.
His sweet little foot.
And his leg, you can also see his little face in the lower left hand corner.
I’m sure I’ll post more about Will and some fun experiences Ben and I have with him, I hope y’all enjoyed the pictures and got a feel for his little personality and sweet spirit. I want to close with a quote from Will’s favorite;
“I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. Its like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass, a new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories has lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going, because they were holding on to something. That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo…and that’s worth fighting for.”- The Lord of the Rings
