11 months

 he is so proud of his mickey sippy cup. he had a hundred, but he wanted a big boy one like his sister's abby cadabby one he loved to steal all the time. william's new word is "hey"  while waving. it is precious. yesterday at the store he spoke to everyone in line at every register.

 "sammy wayne desoto, what is this in my fridgidaire?" that's what annelle said to her husband in steel magnolias. but i like to say it when ww gets in there. i like to quote SM whenever possible actually.

 baby woo. mary martin used to say "woo-yum" so of course being the nickname lover that i am, i added baby woo to the list- budders, baby woo, boo boo, buddy...he actually does answer to william. mary martin had a long list, too but now she is mostly b and beeber. i love how nicknames for people and pets evolve over time. gus has quite a few, too: gu-gu, gu-gu-boy, gu-gu-la (mm made up those 2, a chip off the old block ;) pupster, pupchuck, gusser
mary martin's new favorite lunch- peanut butter right out of the jar. i promise if i have you over for lunch, i won't offer you peanut butter :) i've tried sandwiches, bagels...she just licks the peanut butter off. gus did not mind this arrangement at all.
