Billy and I continue to work with our realtor to find our new home in Overland Park. We've looked at so many it feels like they're all the same. We find ourselves nicknaming them to keep them straight! We'll keep at it until we find one that boh of us just love!
Billy and I took Will to his 1 year checkup today. He was 30 1/2 inches long and 22 6.4 lbs. He's in the 75th percentile for length, and 50th for weight. Stacey (our nurse practitioner) was amazed at how much hair he has! He sat in the room with her and screeched and laughed for several minutes. Our next challenge is going to be getting him to drink more from a sippy cup. So far, he really hasn't liked them, but we want to get him weaned off bottles by about 15 months.

Tom and Sue have left for their big trip of the year, a cruise through the Baltic Sea. They departed Kansas City on Monday, August 25th, and the cruise leaves England today. They will be visiting Oslo, Norway, Copenahagen, Denmark, Stockholm, Sweden, Helsinki, Finland, St. Petersberg, Russia, and Tallinn, Estonia before coming back to England. They turn around and get on another cruise and go to Paris, France, Plymouth, England, Holyhead, Wales, Dublin, Ireland, Cork Ireland, St. John's Newfoundland before cruising to Boston. They will get back to Kansas City late on September 20th. Lets hope Sue brought enough Dramamine!
It's hard to believe that Will is 1 today! We had a great party for him on Saturday, thanks to all of those who attended and made his day so special. As soon as I figure it out, I'll post some pictures. He wasn't sure about his cake, he enjoyed smashing his fingers in it more than actually eating it. We're going to spend a lazy day hanging out together.
